Top 8 best affiliate marketing programs


There are a lot of affiliate networks out there, but what is an affiliate network, and how can you make money via an affiliate network?


We will answer the above mentioned questions and more in this article. And in this article, you’ll also learn more about 8 of the best online affiliate marketing programs right now.


What is an affiliate network?

An affiliate network is a form of intermediary in affiliate marketing. As a marketer, you can apply to become a member of advertising programs that in turn the affiliate networks offer. Affiliate networks make sure you´ll get paid on time, and they also make sure you’ll get access to affiliate links.


You always need to use affiliate links in order for the affiliate network to be able to see that you have contributed with new visitors and leads for the partner company.


5 tips for choosing the best affiliate network

  1. A nice and understandable interface must be offered. An easy to use interface will make it easier to find a good advertising program.
  2. Good customer support must be offered. You should always get help if something goes wrong.
  3. You should get a high commission.
  4. The affiliate network must offer smart technical features. Such as “clean links”, and easy to use integrations with their API. Clean links ensure that the visitor does not find out that it is an affiliate link she clicks on, and an API integration is needed for creating nice lists and product tables that are downloaded directly from the affiliate network.
  5. A lot of advertising programs should be available. Affiliate networks with many advertising programs are preferable, as you thus don’t have to join a lot of different affiliate networks.

IMPORTANT: Note that it is best practice to be transparent regarding the fact that your website contains affiliate links. If you are not, you may be kicked out of the affiliate program.
