Cool What Is The Best Affiliate Program?

I really want to do a good affiliate program. I know there are numerous types. But I want to get a feel from people who are actually making money. Tell me which ones to stay away from too. I just don't want to waste time if the money is not there. Thanks!

The only affiliate program I make money from is AdSense [though not much] and I belong to several.

I would recommend anything in the financial services industry: credit cards, mortgage, car loans, payday loans, etc.

It's very competitive online but if you can drive triffic you will make a lot of money to your affiliate links

Menexis has said the right point. In addition, I would suggest you focus more on the customers' needs and what kind of products you are familiar with and confident with. Why popular products are easy-selling? The first reason is they fit customers' needs. Then the second one is you can confirm the right marketing campaign.

There are ton loads of affiliate programs around us. You should go for people who have top selling and most wanted products lined up with them. I would go for AsSeenOnPCNetwork.com - Twitter. These guys have "As Seen on TV" product inventory with categories. Better to check it your self.

PS. Do checkout the payout levels. If you think they are worth it, go for it.

well my mentor website --- www.uberaffiliate.com --- won't reveal too much about what he does because he can go from $6 - $ ,000's daily! So he isnot looking for people to steal his ideas, but he host a blog anyways.

I've search down clickbank offers that have good action, but try to pick one with a good payout too!

I could go on here, but I would stay away from tangible products with low payouts. BOOO! in down economy.

Go with something that has market buzz, try: http://tinyurl.com/cm3rot since it would have re-occuring payouts while the customer retains the product. FYI

Default Business Products With Affiliate Programs?

I would like to promote to businesses, but I'm tired of looking at printing companies. Is there a site that specializes in business affiliate products so you don't have to sign up with dozens of different vendors? Thanks.

# Chitika ShopCloud$: With ShopCloud$, you can list popular products in a tag cloud format.
# WidgetBucks: These shopping widgets offer popular products, lots of relevance and plenty of customization.
# LinkShare Corp.: LinkShare's affiliate program will hook you up with programs for companies like Apple Inc., Dell and Disney.
# zanox: Set up a zanox online shop, choose your products and earn a percentage of every sale.
# uSuggest LLC: Suggest relevant products to your readers and get paid for doing it.
# Chitika RPU: If you've discussed a product in a post, make money by putting a link to the product at the end of your text.
# Auction Ads LLC: Place relevant eBay auction ads on your site to earn money.
# Commission Junction Inc.: You can promote a wide variety of products through Commission Junction, so you'll be able to find something that's relevant to your readers.

but in my experience, CJ seems to be doing a great job for me.
