The information below is intended to help you make the most out of your affiliate marketing. I’ve tried to take the guess work out – and leave you with nothing but the best affiliate programs to choose from!

Advertise other people’s products.

If you already have a Web site or a blog, look for vendors that offer related but non-competing products and see if they have an affiliate program. Stick to familiar products and brands – they’re easier to sell. To promote those products:

  • Place simple text or graphical ads in appropriate places on your site
  • Include links to purchase products you review or recommend in a blog, discussion forum or mailing list you control
  • Create a dedicated sales page or Web site to promote a particular product

They all work – it just depends on how much time you have to spend on it and your level of expertise with Web design and marketing.

Connect suppliers with buyers.

Referral fees are a common practice in business, but they haven’t been used much in online networking sites because there was no way to track them. Sites like SalesconxInnerSell and uRefer now provide that. Vendors set the referral fees they’re willing to pay (and for what), and when the transaction happens, you get paid. uRefer also allows merchants to set up referral programs for introductions and meetings, as well as transactions.


Below is a list where you will find every advertising network, blog review network, Twitter monetizing site and form filling site that I have ever used and earned money from. From a couple of cents right up to $3000+ they are all listed here for you to take advantage of.

I shall be adding to these pages as and when I can so please make sure that you check back often.

Advertising Networks

Adbrite
Advertising Options: PPC
Payment Method: Check
Minimum Payout: $20
Quick Review: Adbrite are seen as the poor man’s version of Adsense. They have a reputation for not displaying adverts that are related to your niche but they do pretty much accept any web site as long as it is more than one page and is not under construction.

ContextWeb (Adsdaq)
Advertising Options: CPM
Payment Method: Wire Transfer, PayPal, Check
Minimum Payout: $50
Quick Review: This is another new one that I have been with for a while but have only recently started using. They are quite picky about what sites they accept and once declined you can’t submit that site again. They seem to offer good impression rates.

Bidvertiser
Advertising Options: PPC
Payment Method: Check*, PayPal**
Minimum Payout: £100*, $10**
Quick Review: From my initial first impressions they seem to work a lot like Adbrite but they can be very picky about which clicks they accept as legitimate. I no longer use Bidvertiser due to the way they pick and choose which clicks they honor but a lot of people have found success with them.

Clicksor
Advertising Options: PPC
Payment Method: Wire Transfer*, PayPal**
Minimum Payout: $1,000*, $50**
Quick Review: Clicksor are quite weird. They put up very harsh guidelines in order for you to join but their payouts are absolutely dire. Maybe I have not found the right niche yet, some of you might have better luck. I have earned a nice amount with them but it took me a while to earn it.

Smowtion
Advertising Options: CPM
Payment Method: Check, PayPal
Minimum Payout: $100
Quick Review: They seem to look and act very professional compared to the other networks I’ve used (including Google). Their support is very hit and miss when replying, which can put people off. They are not very picky about which sites they accept and they do seem to only acknowledge one ad unit on a page.

TradeDoubler
Advertising Options: PPC, PPL, PPA
Payment Method: BACS
Minimum Payout: $30
Quick Review: Tradedoubler is mainly an affiliate marketing network but they also offer advertisers who pay you for original clicks and I’ve been using this company solely for that. There are not many of them and the ones that are there are VERY picky about which sites they approve.

Underdog
Advertising Options: CPM
Payment Method: Check, Paypal
Minimum Payout: $50
Quick Review: Underdog is one that I am still messing about with. They don’t offer as many ad units as the others and they seem to pay out rather low. At one point I was hitting 11,000 impressions and only getting a Dollar.

Sponsored Post Networks

BlogToProfit
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Weekly
Quick Review: (please enter deansaliba@hotmail.com as the referral)

Each review has been worth between $5.00 and $6.00, you do not get many offers but when you do they come thick and fast. I received four sets of offers with with around five reviews in each. The topics are different as well.

Blogging Ads
Referral System?: No
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: If you have a high quality blog then you might want to check out this network. Beware though they do have very high standrads and are very picky about what blogs they accept and how you write their reviews.
– Sign Up to Bloggerwave


Blogitive
Referral System?: No
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Weekly
Quick Review: Blogitive is potentially simple, write a review of about 150 words and be paid $5.00 but the problem is there are very few reviews and some of the advertisers are very unwilling to approve reviews. I’ve had to remove several because advertisers have become unwilling to pay.

Blogvertise
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: Blogvertise work a little bit differently from the other blog review networks in that they contact you with offers. Recently the amounts have dived from $5-$10 to a mere $1 a review. Blogvertise payout 30 days after the post has been approved.

Buy Blog Reviews
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
strong>Payout Frequency: Fortnightly
Quick Review: I have applied to over 2,800 opportunities and have been accepted for only four of them. One of them is now dragging their heels about paying me. I’d say only use these if you have a PR4+ blog.

Link From Blog
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: Link From Blog is a new one to me, it may have a really horrible design but they offer a good array of opportunities from a wide spectrum of topics. Opps can range from the ludicrous $0.10 right up to the more luxurious $50.00 per article.

Linkworth
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: Linkworth are a sort of jack of all trades. They offer blog review offers, inline ads, banner advertising, text link ads, and lots more. If you have a PR0 blog then you might not get many offers. They pay out once you hit $30.00

Loudlaunch
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: (please enter deansaliba@hotmail.com as the referral)

To earn anything from Loudlaunch you have to be very quick off the mark because the reviews are snapped up in minutes and you can’t reserve them like other networks, you have to write them and hope you have not been beaten to it! A basic review price is about $10.00-$12.00.

PayPerPost
Referral System?: No
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: 2 Months
Quick Review: The mecca for all bloggers wanting to make money via writing reviews. I am starting to hate them though as they are becoming increasingly reluctant to want to work with a blog that uses other review networks or even other advertising networks like Google Adsense.
– Sign Up to PayPerPost


PayU2Blog
Referral System?: No
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Fortnightly
Quick Review: This is one of my favourite networks as the reviews are very frequent. Each one is about $5.00 but if your PR is higher I guess you will get more. You also get the odd $10.00 and $20.00 reviews. Each review is about 60 words with just one link needed.
– Sign Up to PayU2Blog


ReviewMe
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Fortnightly
Quick Review: I’ve been with ReviewMe since 2007, although you would not think that when I tell you I have only earnt about $30 with them. This is because to earn anything significant you have to be approved to their premium market place. This is to weed out the scummy blogs.

Smorty
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Fortnightly
Quick Review: Smorty was once a favourite of mine but sadly the reviews dried up so I was forced to look elsewhere and now I barely check Smorty once a day. They might perk up and if so then definitely check them out. They pay every week which is why they become very popular.

Sponsored Reviews
Referral System?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Fortnightly
Quick Review: Whilst most see PayPerPost as the mecca of bloggers wishing to earn money writing review, I choose to worship Sponsored Reviews. I have earned the second highest amount with them, under PayU2Blog. Reviews are not all about finance & Viagra and start off at $5.00 and can go up as high as $100+. They also pay every 14 days.

Zync
Referral System?: No
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: If you can speak Spanish then how about the only blog review network written in Spanish? The review can be written in English if you wish, it basically works like ReviewMe but without the market place. They pay monthly and I have had 4 reviews accepted by them, all Spanish holidays though.

Twitter Networks

Ad.Ly
Referral Network?: No
Payment Method: Check, PayPal
Minimum Payout: $50
Quick Review: A network with some serious money behind them. To be accepted into this network you must have at least 25000 followers. If you are accepted and you fall below this amount then they will suspend your account until you gain the minimum requirement again. Helps entice advertisers.
– Sign Up to Ad.Ly


MyLikes
Referral Network?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Minimum Payout: $2
Quick Review: Tweets seem to be directed at American traffic and they only pay if someone clicks on the link in your tweet. Ads are geo targeted though, most of them are only looking for American traffic so if someone from Germany clicks on one then they won’t be counted as a click. Great if you have a lot of American traffic.

RevTwt
Referral Network?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Minimum Payout: $20
Quick Review: This network is the reason you saw so many teeth whitening and weight loss diet tweets on Twitter a couple of months ago. Again they only pay if someone clicks on a link in the tweet and they only pay if the click is from a certain country, mostly from the States.

Sponsored Tweets
Referral Network?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Minimum Payout: None
Quick Review: Seen as the major player and it really should not surprise anyone because they are owned by Izea, the same company that operates PayPerPost. This is the one that all the big bloggers are promoting and receiving $1,000+ a time per tweet.
– Sign Up to Sponsored Tweets


Twitad
Referral Network?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Minimum Payout: $30
Quick Review: I think Twitads went under new management recently because they revamped their site, started showing offers again and increased the amount they pay for posting their ads. Admittedly I’ve only see offers promoting their own network but at around $3-$4 a tweet I’m not arguing.

Sell Link Space

Performancing Ads
Referral Network?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: Performancing is a banner ad marketplace which is very popular with bloggers. Bloggers are paid 60% of the ad sales they generate. I have not used this that much, I’m hoping to change that next month.
– Sign Up to Performancing Ads


Text Link Ads
Referral Network?: Yes
Payment Method: PayPal
Payout Frequency: Monthly
Quick Review: Text Link Ads (TLA for short) has been a rather consistant income provider for me over the past six months or so. They sell links on your site to advertisers and split the money with you.
