I realize that the original post is quite old but I know that this is a question I hear alot, but the responses I hear and read are often too ambiguous to answer the question with clarity.

99% of the time the ultimate determinant for choosing the right affiliate program for you, really should come down to what interests you, and/or what is your website's content about. If it's about underwater-basket-weaving then find affiliate programs that promote related products and services in that industry.

I don't ever recommend just choosing an affiliate program because it can earn a lot of money for you. Do what you love - in other words help promote, and affiliatize yourself - your site with programs that are relevant to what interests you; to what you love; what it is your passionate about.

Many potential affiliates are often overwhelmed and confused at what affiliate program to be a part of simply because there are so many options, but when you decide what (industry, type of product or service) you'd like to promote beforehand, you prevent yourself from being overwhelmed and waste much less time looking.

So my advice is to make your decision based upon what your passionate about and what interests you. Keep in mind that affiliate programs that can make you a lot of money are often extremely competitive. However if those programs you want to be involved with are inline with what you're interested in, then you'll probably have more knowledge on how to promote the program then many of your competitors because most of them are just doing it because it's popular, so you'll have more advantage over them, and you'll know how to speak to the market more naturally.

I can go on quite a bit about this subject, because it's one that I, myself, am very passionate about. But I won't. No one wants to read a blogs worth of entry here. But I do hope my rant helped someone that has posed this same question.

Feel free to contact me if you have any other thoughts or questions about this subject.

Amazon is huge, they do good business, too.

Its all about WHAT kind of traffic and HOW MUCH traffic you are getting.

Make a good decision based on those two things.

Amazon is huge, yes, however, the problem I have noticed with the Amazon affiliate scheme is that if I do not hide the link to where the product is located then my customers do not click the link, they bypass me, go straight to Amazon, search there and then buy, leaving me with no commission at all.

In the New Year I will be doing more testing with my Amazon affiliate marketing and see if I can up my sales

I use paidonresults.com, cj.com and clickbank.com

I do not do very well with the above LOL, however, it has never been a key focus of mine either, if I put some effort into it then I know I could make the sales more, I am an affiliate of activemobility.com also and this is where I make my money with affiliate marketing, this is because I implemented their products properly (this showed me how I should be doing all the other affiliate products), instead of just having links I spent the time and added their products to my website allowing me to show their products properly which increases my click through rate

Why don't you plan for funds to conduct that affiliated programs.If you get the funds you can conduct the program.Since you said it as a good program definitely ,if you plan for it you need not wait for the funds next time they automatically come.

The first thing you have to remember about affiliates is Traffic. you can have Awesome affiliated but if no one sees them it does you no good.

with that being said, here are a few of my favorite places to setup affiliates:

Amazon.com - at the bottom of the page you will see Join Assosiates, it allows you to sell anything you can find on amazon and you get a % of that sale.

Google Ads - these are good, but pay very little, use them more as a space filler them a profit generation tool.

CJ.com & ClickBank.com - both good sites for finding affiliate links and you can find some high paying
