3 BIGGEST Affiliate Marketing Blogging Money Makers
Personally, I like receiving checks in the mail ;).
Let’s go ahead and get started with:
Clickbank Affiliate Network
Clickbank is known internet-wide as the BEST affiliate network system available.
It certainly has its flaws in the past with tracking, affiliate sales because of affiliate code theft, but the managers fixed the program that has plagued Clickbank for years and it’s virtually a “foolproof” money making system.
Clickbank offers you (the sexy blogger, you) a ton of products to take to the market and make 50%-75% commissions like clockwork because all of their products are “digital”, which means NO inventory, NO storage fees, and NO hassle. Giving you the freedom to find every product imaginable by niche.
This means that no matter what your blog is about, there’s a good chance you’ll find a related product you can re-sale as an affiliate to make a profit from Clickbank.
Payouts generally range from $20 to $300+ (recurring income). Profit margins are extremely high compared to physical products and it reduces overhead costs.
Commission Junction Affiliate Network
Commission Junction (CJ) is an affiliate marketing network made for affiliates, by affiliates.
Some people look at CJ as the outcast affiliate network if you don’t find anything of interest in Clickbank. In my experience, it’s the total opposite.
I’ve found products at CJ, that’s impossible to find on Clickbank because many products are too saturated and commercialized.
CJ is like the Indie film that sneaks up from behind and takes the major Hollywood film industry by total surprise with a fresh, new perspective of what affiliates want from vendors and the service they come to expect.
One of the biggest negatives about CJ is that it can take forever and a day to get approved with some merchants.
But this shouldn’t stop you from making money with this affiliate network.
CJ’s product variety makes Willy Wonka’s Candy Factory look “pale” in comparison.
CJ’s commission structure works much the same as Clickbank with a few unique twists that makes this network stand out.
LinkShare Affiliate Network
Finally, it comes down to the last affiliate network — LinkShare.
LinkShare is the 3rd best affiliate network to use. You will find what you’re looking for in the first two networks, but if you can’t (for whatever reason) you can also count on LinkShare to save the day.
What makes LinkShare unique is that you don’t have to make a “sell” to make money.
Instead, you can drive traffic to other peoples squeeze pages (opt-in pages). And produce more income regardless if you get a sale or not.
Other than that, there isn’t a whole lot different about LinkShare except it has less product selection.
So, if you’re looking for a 3rd alternative to the two above, LinkShare would be my pick.
