Too much too soon. Stick to one website to begin with. Don’t get distracted by shiny new niches. This will only dilute your efforts. It’s absolutely not a waste of time to spend hours on end researching the very best niche for you to enter into. The commission, cookies, product and even the advertiser’s website all have to be excellent. The last thing you want to do is invest money in creating your own site only to send visitors to an advertiser’s site that barely converts a single sale. Would you buy from the advertiser’s site? Question everything before you spend a single penny on building your new site.
Commission Management. Freedom’s MLM module comes with comprehensive commission management and reporting functionalities. This allows you to properly attribute clickthroughs as well as accurately calculate affiliate commissions. To top it all off, Freedom also has built-in payment processing options, so you don’t have to install different software to send out commissions.
Revenue Sharing Social Networks: The revenue sharing content model started with sites like HubPages, but have grown beyond just text-based-content since then to include Daily TwoCents, Techulator, Tsu, GetGems, BonzoMe, Bubblews, RedGage and Persona Paper. This model is not without controversy since many content contributors complain about constantly changing payment models, payments lower than expected and problems with late payments. Do your due diligence and read reviews and opinions from users.
Pay-Per-Click is also considered as widespread and common affiliate agreement. Under this agreement, the affiliate marketers will get fixed rates depending on the number of clients who click on the links placed on the affiliate website that leads to the merchant website. Here a purchase is not necessary to earn commissions, all that has to be done is that the client clicks the link and stays at least thirty seconds on the merchant website. Regardless of what the visitor does on the merchant site, this will not affect the commission.

Affiliate programs are usually limited to industry influencers — as determined by blog click-through rates, email list sizes, social media engagement, or other factors — who sell to a greater audience. Affiliate partners may be required to maintain a minimum conversion rate. Many affiliate programs are more lax nowadays, but at the very least, they require affiliates to have an active website or online presence.
Wow. Thank you for parting the mists of the mystery of affiliate marketing. I was drowning in vagueness and confusion for a few weeks there and now I feel like I have enough information to at least create a strategy around when I might want to start. I had no idea that it was so country-specific, which is important because I get just as many hits from European countries as I do the U.S.
This is a great example of a top notch review site. They start at the homepage notifying that they make affiliate commissions, but provide top end reviews from independent reviewers. This is great to be honest up front. In addition to being transparent, they also take the content is king strategy. I randomly clicked on their “Top Home Projector” post where they reviewed (and linked) to several high end home theater projectors. Keep in mind that these high priced items produce high commissions. That may explain why they spent the time to write a 5,000 word post on it. This site seems to do everything right in being a prime example of an Amazon Affiliate Website. This site now has over 60 staff members working for it.
Another example of an Amazon Affiliate Website that niched down to long boards. These are like skateboards but longer and meant to cruise, going longer distances than skateboards. It’s a relatively simple website that loads the user with tons of products from the homepage but highlights the lack of comments per review (usually 0 – 2 comments). The typical length of an article is 300-500 words so they are relying on their specific niche for traffic. Not bad for a “.net” domain as they are less common than their popular counterparts “.com”. It’s not the best example, but I’m going for a range.
Amazon Associates is one of the largest affiliate programs available, and is open to anyone aspiring to become an affiliate marketer, no matter your level of experience, so it’s perfect for beginners. They do provide training tutorials for those who are starting completely from scratch in the industry, but the downside is that they aren’t quite as in-depth as the others I’ve previously mentioned, and it can be a bit overwhelming to someone just starting out. Don’t worry, though; as long as you pay close attention to the training videos, find your niche, and stick to it, you’ll be fine.
Analytics can also help you adjust your affiliate marketing strategy. If your audience is engaging with one post more than another for the same product, this is insight into what content your audience prefers. If using one hashtag decreases your reach, you may choose to swap it out for another to maximize your audience and grow your per-click earnings.
Choosing an affiliate network doesn’t usually give details about how much you can make, however, I think with WarriorPlus it’s a little different. Like other affiliate networks, there’s lots of potential to find valuable products that you’re audience may be interested in, however, based on my experience with WarriorPlus, I think you’d have to spend much more time on this step than you would at other networks.
New prospective users often ask us how easy it is for their affiliate to share their link. It’s really simple. Here’s how it works… When your affiliates sign up with you, they’ll automatically receive an email from you welcoming them to your affiliate program. This email will contain their unique referral link. It will also contain a “one-click” login link to their Affiliate Dashboard.
