During the training, he says that our website will most likely be accepted. I've sent quite a few requests and have been rejected by most of them because "site doesn't complement advertiser brand". Do you have any tips? Should i wait a bit longer for applying, and focus on writing my content first?

I would continue adding content. The more content the more likely you are to be accepted as an affiliate. Great content is one of the most powerful tools you have for being accepted.

Some affiliate programs required more that others for acceptance.

The more content you have on your site with some traffic the more likelihood you will have for acceptance. Several years ago we tried to become affiliate marketers for an exclusive luxury brand and were rejected forever. Their expectations were very high.

Adding content posts without affiliate links is okay because this is a long term business and the more traffic you build up now the more lowlihood you will have of sales when you are accepted.

You site need be ready before you apply for affiliate programs

You would have written 20 - 30 posts and have some traffic to be able apply for affiliate programs as typically they will check your site for relevance and traffic prior approval.

For Amazon it is 10 - 15 posts. You also would have to make 3 sales in your first 180 days.

Lucrative programs - 40 posts +

Once accepted, they've given you material and special tracking code links you can share on your site.

Essentially you are writing more informational posts so that you do not sound so salesy to Google and if there’s a solution, a detailed analysis review post for your visitors to let them make an informed decision whether to go click your links and go purchase the focused item you proposed to solve their issue.

Once they do, and in accordance with your affiliation terms and conditions, how commission payouts are tracked and paid. You need to read up how payments are made because different programs follow different rules; some pay by check others via PayPal or straight to your check account.

I would always adhere to your affiliate program terms and conditions.

A lot of the training modules in the OEC courses are getting re-done soon. WA has made some announcements on that end.

Almost all of the core training and methods are the same that they have been for many years. It is unfortunate that some of the training videos have old interfaces and what not which can be slightly confusing... But it's all the same methods! I'm looking forward to the reboot of training videos, they'll be modernized soon.
