Five Affiliate Programs You Need to Know About Now

Thursday, May 2, 2019

Most people start a blog because they have something to say but also to make money. While there is many ways to make money from blogging, I recently started looking into affiliate marketing. Honestly, I know I m late to the game but there is no time like the present to learn and try new things.

Affiliate marketing is when you share a brand/persons product link on your website and then receive a commission for any purchases made through your link. There is few different affiliate marketing programs - shopping sites (amazon), affiliate networks, and private affiliate programs.

Most important part about finding the right affiliate program is to find promote products/services your target audience (niche/following) will enjoy learning about. You can promote affiliate programs by writing a product review, linking to a product in a relevant post, or placing an affiliate banner on your site. I did some research and landed on these five high paying affiliate programs for fashion bloggers and start making money today.

I found that these networks have a fit in a lot of niches - from travel, style to mommy bloggers as they offer a huge variety,
