The Best Affiliate Programs

I'm new to affiliates. Right now I have Amazon and Match.com and a couple of smaller ones.

What does everyone think is the best affiliate in terms of commission, honesty, etc?

Hey,

It really depends on what industry you are in. I think every industry/niche has some "best" Merchants... (They are called Merchants, not Affiliates). They are called Merchants because they are the ones who sell the product... whatever that is. They do the orders, shipping, payment, etc. Affiliates are those of us who promote their product, and get a cut... but don't have to deal with all the other crap :-]

For instance... The Match.com one you mentioned is supposed to be a really good merchant in the dating niche. I wouldn't be promoting Match.com on a site that is about selling army equipment. You want relevancy.

As for Amazon, I have not heard many good things about them. They cap their commissions, and their pay sucks.

But back to your main question... There really is no best Merchant. It all depends on what niche you are dealing with.

All the Best,

C.K.

>> They cap their commissions,

Cap has gone on all items as of Q3 with one exception PCs and Notebooks are being capped at 25.

Problem with Amazon like most affiliate programs is the simple fact that banners will not motivate people to buy.

So don't use the banners. Amazon doesn't have the best commission on stuff but they convert great because people trust them and they have some of the lowest prices around.
