There are a lot of affiliate programs and networks out there. So, deciding which one to join can be difficult at first. As you gain more experience, this will become easier for you. Just don’t go out and join every program you can! Make sure the products are related to your niche. Don’t try to promote bedding on a site that is promoting dieting.
The only questions that you should have are which ones to join and when. I believe that you should get your site up and have five to ten articles before promoting products. You can read more about this in my article “How affiliate marketing programs work”. This will give you some of the basic knowledge you will need to be successful in affiliate marketing.
The program I will discuss here is Shareasale. We will look at how to join Shareasale, why, types of products, how to find a merchant, and how to sign up with a merchant.
