The 25+ Best Affiliate Marketing Programs

Affiliate marketing is one of the few ways you can build a legitimate, online passive income source. I’m going to take a look at some of the best affiliate marketing programs you can join to help monetize your blog o auth blog or authority site. I review affiliate programs on an ongoing basis- so this list will continue to grow.

Best Affiliate Networks

First, you’ll need to understand the distinction between affiliate networks and affiliate programs. Affiliate networks house affiliate programs. For example, the Rakuten Advertising affiliate network houses affiliate programs as diverse as Udemy and Macy’s.  The ShareASale affiliate network houses programs like Reebok, Minted, and FreshBooks. In contrast, the Amazon Associates Program and eBay are their own networks- they don’t operate through something like ShareASale.

Best Affiliate Programs

Internet Marketing

The internet marketing space famous, perhaps even know notorious, for highly lucrative and aggressive affiliate marketing programs. It makes sense because many marketing tools are expensive and recurring, so companies are willing to reward high commissions in this competitive space if you’re able to refer qualified traffic to things like autoresponder software, keyword research tools, SEO services, hosting platforms and domain name providers.

Finance
