Read Rosalind's true story of how one woman, with no previous business experience, earns 400,000+ per year ... selling other people's stuff online! In 270+ pages, and more than 73,000 words, you'll learn how to pick the best programs, negotiate a commission raise and save time, money and effort on everything from affiliate software to web hosting.
I personally receive over a dozen checks and commission payments
every month from various affiliate programs that I promote.
Last month, those checks totaled more than $10,000 and some
months they have been as high as $25,000.
Given my success as an affiliate marketer, I'm often asked what
affiliate programs I personally recommend.
The answer is easy because it's actually a pretty short list.
First, let me explain what an affiliate program is.
Affiliate programs are used by monster companies like Amazon, eBay, and
many others to recruit resellers
(affiliates) to help bring customers to their websites.
But the affiliate programs I prefer are those offered by smaller
companies that sell digital products online. Those are the
programs that pay up to 75% commission, while most larger
companies may pay just a few percent.
You can join an affiliate program usually by applying online at
the company's website. Being accepted into the program gives you
the right to market the company's products as an independent
reseller and receive commissions when you make a sale.
I've looked at hundreds of affiliate programs over the years and
have come up with my own personal Top 10 Affiliate Programs that I actively participate in
and heartily recommend.
Some of these programs require that you pay a membership fee and
some do not. The reason some programs charge a fee (including my
own affiliate programs) is because you get more value as an
In most cases you get a full-blown website from which to sell the
products and copies of most - if not all - of the products you'll
be selling. For example, I charge $249 to join my affiliate licensee program, but
you get access to over $500 in products.
To make my list of the Top Affiliate Programs is not an easy
First of all, I have to personally be an affiliate of the program
and must have earned considerable sums to prove its validity.
To make my list the program must also:
- Offer quality products that offer real value, no fluff
- Offer high commissions (30% minimum, 50% preferred)
Offer 2 tier commissions (if the 1st tier payout is
substantial, I can live with a single tier)
- Have a proven track record of success
- Have a spotless reputation
- Pay commissions on time, every time
- Have well-known affiliates who will vouch for the program
- Be more than 6 months old
- Have a low rate of returns
- Be referred to me by someone I trust.
That last one's a biggie for me. If one of my peers recommends a
program, I know it's going to be good.
So, here is my personal Top Affiliate Programs that make me
thousands of dollars every month and with a little time
and effort, there is no reason they can't do the same for you.
These are the programs that I personally participate
in and recommend. If you're serious about starting your
own affiliate marketing empire, take a close look at these.
Dave's Cool Little Website
Naturally Dave's Cool Little Website tops my list of the Internet's Best Affiliate Programs. This program generated over $100,000 for affiliates in the first 6 weeks alone and it continues to crank out thousands of dollars every week. Dave's Cool Little Website is now the Number 1 eBay and Adsense affiliate program on Clickbank and Dave just keeps making it better. If you are not an affiliate of Dave's you are missing the boat.
DropshipWholesale.net Amazing Little Website
Naturally I have to recommend my own affiliate program. Yes, I
charge for the affiliate license, but I also give affiliates a
full blown website and copies of all my products and my track
record is 2nd to none. I signed checks last year that paid out
over several hundred thousand dollars to affiliates, so I
know it works.

My P&P affiliate program is one of the top programs on the web

You can find most of them listed at Clickbank or Commission Junction.
