Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways of making money online. I am working online since 2010 and I made my first online income using affiliate marketing.
Now, in 2021, I am promoting more than 20 affiliate products and using more than 7 affiliate networks on my niche sites. This whole making money with affiliate programs thing is complicated for newbies, so I will try to make it simple for you.
What is an Affiliate program and How does it work?
If you never heard about affiliate programs, or if you never understood it, I will try to explain everything, in a few easy steps. So there are basically thousands of websites and networks that are offering different products, like books, gadgets, clothes, and cars.
In the last few years, some of these online stores created their own affiliate program. Let’s say there is some eCommerce computer store and they are selling a bunch of laptops in their store.
Now you can go to their site and you can start promoting their affiliate products.
If you are an internet marketer, and you know how to sell computer products, you can make tons of money using their affiliate program. If you are their affiliate, you will be able to create a unique affiliate link for each of their products.
Once you get your affiliate link for some laptop, you can send this link to a bunch of people online, you can promote it on your own site, on Youtube, on Facebook, Instagram…
If you get some clicks on your link, and if your visitor then buys a laptop, you will get a commission from that sale. Affiliate programs are using cookies in order to track your visitors, if your visitor buys anything from their site in the next 30 days you will get a commission from that purchase.
Affiliate commissions are usually in the 5-30% range.
I hope you can understand this, you can send people to some web-shop, Amazon.. and if those people buy something from that affiliate site, you will get a commission because they got there through your affiliate link.
What are some of the best Affiliate Programs?
Amazon affiliate program is probably one of the best and one of the most popular affiliate programs nowadays. You can promote every single product from the Amazon store using their affiliate program, and there are more than 100 million products on their site.
Once you register your Amazon affiliate account (you can register here) you will be able to generate an affiliate link for any product you want to promote.
Amazon will give you a 4-8% commission for any sales you can send using your affiliate link.
One of the best affiliate programs is the AliExpess affiliate program.
AliExpress affiliate is a much better choice to start with if you are a newbie, you can start promoting millions of products from Aliexpress, and most of them are pretty affordable, gadgets, and stuff like that, people are buying that stuff more often than expensive products from Amazon.
Aliexpress will also give you 5%-10% commission for your affiliate sales.
One more advantage with Aliexpress over the Amazon affiliate program, you can get a commission for your sales worldwide, so you will get commission even for sales from small countries like Croatia and some small villages in India, and if you are using Amazon Affiliates, you can only get a commission for sales from the few main countries like US, Canada, UK…

I am promoting webcam models for the last 4 years and it’s one of my main affiliate businesses right now. Millions of girls are working online as a webcam model, and you can get your own piece of cake right now.

Webcam girls are making so much money every day, $100-400, and you can start making $10-40 per day by sending them over using your affiliate link. If you refer 20 girls, and if each of them is making $150 per day, you will make a $15 commission from each girl, that’s $300 in total, per day.
I also wrote an article about this webcam agent method a few weeks ago, you can read it here.
So, if you send some model on some affiliate webcam modeling site using your affiliate link, and if your model is making $100 per day, you will get a $10 commission from their earnings, every single day, for the rest of your life.
