It is no longer news that people earn money from affiliate marketing; the only thing a lot of people are concerned about right now is the best affiliate programmes to join in order to make more profit or ensure steady income generation.
Bloggers and even folks without any websites are earning recurrent passive income from different affiliate programmes out there. The question I should be asking you is, are you making money from affiliate marketing? What affiliate programme are you promoting? If haven’t started making money yet, it’s time to give it a thought.
There are a million and one affiliate programs that one can enjoy online. But like the title of this post says, we are looking for programmes to benefit from. This means that we are talking about profits and gains. If this is the case, then we are going to narrow the programs to the ones that come with benefits.
The affiliate programs that come with earnings online are the ones that involve affiliate marketing. There are affiliate programs for people who want to foster education, there are some for charity and there are others for climate change awareness, cancer awareness, etc. But all these are non-profit and therefore are not what we are looking at. We are looking at programs that will put some real bucks into your pocket.
We know there are several affiliate markets out there, but here is a list of the top 10 affiliate programmes that are likely to pay you reliable, stable and reasonable income this year:
Google ad sense
Of course whenever you talk about affiliate programs, the first thing that comes to your mind is Google. This is the engine room of whatever that is done online. Everything about search and research is done mostly through Google. Because of this, many businesses run their adverts through Google and pay Google huge amounts of money. Google on its own looks for people who will help them with these ads so that it will get to across the globe.
If you have websites or blogs that have enough traffic, register with Google and they will give you an Adsense account. With this, ads and banners will be placed on your blog and website and you will be paid as visitors click on these.
This is obviously one of the greatest affiliate programmes that you can make money with in 2014. Many people see this as overused of all the programs. But the truth is that Amazon has whatever it takes to work with and pay any amount of affiliates that registers with it. Just get your blog or website up and running, make it an authority by getting huge traffics, register with them and they will be sending ads to your blog. Anybody that clicks on the ads makes them pay you some money.
EBay is another marketplace, and many people can benefit from the eBay affiliate. This affiliate program works exactly the same way the amazon affiliate works. They buy ad spaces from you, but only pay you when people click on those ads from your blog or website.
This is another affiliate marketing platform from where you can earn money in 2014. But one good thing that makes this better than the aforementioned two is that it has its own branch for all countries, which is dedicated to the country. This makes it easy for local marketers and affiliate members to earn money easily. You can be part of this by creating your blog or website and advertising for them.
Disclosure: It should be noted that these sites are not mentioned in their order of performance or reliability. Having used some of them, I am making my reviews based on personal experiences and also based on reviews gathered from friends and members of some of the forums I belong to. This is not a direct endorsement of any of the sites. I am an affiliate to one or two of the sites, but that does not in any way dilute my personal opinion of the sites or make for a biased review. Your joining any of the sites through any of the links here means that I will receive some commissions from the company.
Freelancer is the world number one online content marketplace. It has a lot of affiliate programs that will help you earn money this year. When you register with them, even if you are not writing contents for clients, you can be referring new users. Any new user that signs up through you will put some commissions into your pocket. You can earn as huge as $10 per referral.
HostPapa affiliates is one of the programs that you can leverage on in 2014. Their main function is to run adverts for firms. If you have a blog or website, you only need to register with them for them to place ads on your blog. However, one good thing about this is that they give you ads relevant to the niche you run on your blog. This brings about easier conversion rate, because the visitors are people who are already looking for information on what they are offering. A referral here can earn you up to $200.
Justhost is a web hosting firm and they work with bloggers to get customers. Here, you are paid up to $60 for each user that you refer to them. Their affiliate programme is very transparent, in the sense that you have the chance to check the click through ratios, and this gives you information on the amount you will receive before the paycheck arrives.
This is obviously one of the most popular web hosting firms, and it has been offering great hosting for a very long time. Their affiliate program is also a very exciting one. One thing here is that because of the reputation they have built, it is easy to get customers to sign up with them. Their pay package is also wonderful. If you get 1-5 customers for them in a month, you can earn as much as $50 for each sign up. But, if you get up to 200, you can earn up to $150 for each sign up. This is good money.
You can make reason amount of money from BlueHost affiliate in 2014. You are paid $65 for each person you refer to them. Unlike some hosting companies, they do not force you get referrals within a timeframe in order to get paid. You are likely to get referrals easily by using your blog or website, since a lot of bloggers trust their hosting services.
Indeed Job Affiliate Programme
This is the affiliate programme that deals with jobs. It is in fact the type that will give more money to Nigerians because of our unemployment issue. When you refer job seekers to this program or when they click through the job adverts that are placed on your blogs, they pay you good commission for that. All these are workable and can give you good money if you work hard.
Making money online has been made much easier with the presence of affiliate programmes. In order to get what you want, make sure you do your thorough research to know which programmes pay the best commissions, and which also guarantee payment of commissions without any hassles.
