FAQs About Being An Affiliate
Here's a collection of commonly searched for topics. Each one has a brief answer to help you if you're still learning, or merely investigating affiliation as a revenue-generation method for a digital business.
What is the highest paying affiliate program listed here?
There's never one permanent affiliate program that's the highest paying. If you put 10 random people who generate revenue from affiliate marketing and asked them what their highest paying program was, you'd get quite a few different answers. The highest paying program for you depends on which niche you operate in, types of marketing methods you do, the size of your audience and how hard you promote. Some programs also have private agreements with individual affiliates. That means a program that may not start out as a high payer, may grow to become a high payer.
Which one is the best affiliate program to join?
If you're brand new to the industry it can be best to join one of the major networks such as ShareASale or CJ. Those networks have merchants in many different categories. It means by creating just one account on one of those networks you'll have access to hundreds, if not thousands, of merchants in different niches. Doing it that way keeps things simple and allows you to focus on growing your audience first. Then once you have an established asset to monetize, you can look into joining lots of programs.
What big brands have affiliate programs?
Many major brands use affiliate programs to help them increase sales. Two of the most well-known programs are Amazon Associates and eBay Partner Network. Within affiliate networks you may also see other major brands such as Netflix.
Are affiliate programs legit?
Affiliate marketing is a multi-billion dollar industry. That can only be facilitated by having programs and networks that are reliable. There are plenty of well-established networks and programs that have been around a long time with thousands of happy affiliates. But inevitably not all companies behave the same and go about things in the same way. That's why Affpinions exists, to help you learn about companies and work out whether each one is legit or not.
How can I start affiliate marketing with no money?
There are many different ways to promote your affiliate links. Using social media is one of them. It's free to setup social media accounts meaning you don't need any money to get going. These days websites are very cheap to setup, you can even start for free by using websites like WordPress.com. Many YouTubers put affiliate links in their video descriptions. And if you know how to develop mobile apps then it's very cheap to list in the Google Play Store. So, as you can see, there are plenty of ways to build an audience for little to no cost. And because the majority of networks are free to join you don't need money for that neither.
