The complete guide to affiliate programs and products to enhance your web site and produce profits.







Affiliate Programs

Affiliate programs are an excellent way to enhance or supplement a web site’s earning potential. Listed below are a variety of Affiliate programs. You should search these sites for associated products to market on your site. Most are set up so that you earn a commission for each item sold. I also included links to a few of my own pages which have affiliate adds. You are invited to click around and see for yourself how a few well placed affiliate ads can enhance your site while providing another separate profit center.




  Promote and sell your own products or promote other products and receive a commission on each sale which you generate. Click Bank is a great affiliate program. You can create your own digital product or sell products created by others. Either way its a win win situation. For example if you author your own ebook you can post it on click bank. Affiliates will then market your ebook on their web sites for a commission that you set. If your not that creative you can choose from a huge assortment of downloadable products and build ads for them on your own web site. You will earn a commission, usually 50-75% of each item sold. Better yet you can do both.

Check out the link listed below. This is the click bank landing page for two Home Security ebooks I authored. Basically, anyone with a web site can sign up as a click bank affiliate and sell either or both of these books. My affiliates earn 70% profit for each book sold. Note the Google Adsence ad on the same page.

Amazon has an unique affiliate program called Amazon Associates. Web masters can earn up to 15% commission on a wide variety of products. Just visit and click on the Join Associates link at the bottom of the main page. Although Amazon Associates are best known for its affiliate book program I would strongly suggest spending some time on this site and finding a few non book products. What I have done on several of my sites is to create a “suggested reading” page. That page has a google PPC ad and an assortment of topic related affiliate books from Amazon. The page is simple to produce and consistently produces profit. In addition, I have been able to capitalize on some other higher retail price products that Amazon offers like cameras. Below are a few hints for Amazon Associates:

1) When setting up your amazon Associate program. Make sure you select direct deposit so you avoid the payment processing fee.

2) Your web site should be up and running before you register, as Amazon will review the site manually before approval.

3) When its time to start building links add the Link Builder header to the top of Amazon’s page. This will make it extremely easy to search for products and build links with your affiliate ID already built in. See amazon’s instructions for more information.

4) Amazon also offers an easy to built online store. Just sign in as an affiliate and click on aStore. You can create your own pages filled with Amazon's affiliate products. The aStore also allows you to change background and text to match the design of your main website. Check out this link to the authors amazon store  Suggested Reading is an online store specialized in selling books, CDs, DVDs and Videos. When a visitor of your site purchases an item from through a link on your site, you will receive a fee of between 5% and 15% of the purchase price.
