More Affiliate Networks You Haven't Heard Of!
There are hundreds of thousands of affiliate programs out there. Search just about any product, and there will be a way to promote it as an affiliate.
But the depth of affiliate offeres goes beyond what I ever thought. I help out a lot of my referrals with their research from time to time, since there's a lot of questions about what's going to make money and what isn't (hint: ANY niche can make money).
So as I do this research, and research for my own sites, I stumble upon a lot of opportunities previously unknown to me.
I won't list all the niches and opportunities here, but I do want to post some affilaite networks you might not have heard of. We all know about Amazon and Walmart, and some of you might have heard of Shareasale or CJ.
There are tons more out there. Each affiliate network has hundreds, if not thousands of companies they represent. Imagine that each of the companies below opens the doors to another 100+ potential companies for which you could be an affiliate, and within each company there's multiple (maybe hundreds) of products to promote.
- Commission Junction (CJ)
- Commission Factory
- Avangate (2checkout)
- She Is Media
The easy part is adding links from these companies. The hard part is getting quality traffic to your links. That's the key component that most "how to make money online" courses forget to tell you about.
They'll sell you a "done for you" website package or a "business in a box", but they fail to remind you that 90% of the work is getting traffic to your website so you can actually promote stuff!
Luckily, Wealthy Affiliate covers organic, FREE traffic methods extensively within the training. Keywords, content, SEO, social media - these are all things you can do to boost your sites authority, and get traffic to the products and services you want to promote.
Take some time to investigate one of these affiliate networks you haven't heard of! My new favorite one is Impact! (previously Impact Media). The've got some really cool offers. Some are even "secret" and you have to apply directly through the company to view the offer within Impact.
A gem I found was She Is Media while looking to be an affiliate of AirBnB. If you have a travel blog, that could be a great avenue for revenue!
Do you have an favorite affiliate network where you search for offers?
