Affiliate programs, also called associate programs, are arrangements in which an online merchant pays an affiliate a commission to send them traffic. The affiliate posts links to the merchant site and is paid according to a particular agreement.
Joining an affiliate program is one way to earn money online. Your goal in affiliate marketing is to earn commissions for mentioning or recommending services or products on your website.
There are at least three parties in an affiliate program transaction:
- The Customer
- The Affiliate
- The Merchant
Over the past few years, affiliate programs have grown enormously in popularity, taking many interesting forms. One of the reasons affiliate programs are so popular is that they offer a win-win situation for both merchant and affiliate.
The merchant’s cost for advertising a particular product is limited (largely) to the percentage paid to an affiliate, and the merchant only has to pay when a purchase is actually made. The site owner stands to make some money, so long as enough visitors click on the affiliate links and make purchases.
There are oodles of websites (especially around web products/services) that offer affiliate programs. You can possibly be an affiliate for anything these days, my preference of course is all things affiliate marketing. For the sake of this article I will name my top 10 high paying affiliate programs.
