Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways to make money online. I am working online since I was 15 and I made one of my first dollars using affiliate marketing back in 2009.
Now, in 2020, I am promoting more than 30 affiliate products and more than 10 affiliate networks on my niche sites. I know how this whole making money with affiliate programs thing is complicated for newbies, so I will try to make it simple for you right here and right now.
I will try to write these articles for newbies, and if you have any questions you can contact me.
What does Affiliate mean and How does it work?
If you never heard about affiliate programs, or if you never understood it, I will try to explain it you everything, in a few simple 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, 90% of these online stores started their own affiliate program. Let’s say there is some PC eCommerce website and they are selling a bunch of laptops in their store.
So, now you can go to their site and you can register with their affiliate program, what’s next?
If you are an internet marketer, and you know how to sell PC-s, you can make tons of money using their affiliate program. If you are their affiliate now, you will be able to create a unique affiliate link for each of their products.
If their store name is www.pc-store.com, your affiliate link will probably be www.pc-store.com/youraffiliateID.
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 click on your link, and the visitor then buys PC, you will get a commission from that sale.
Affiliate commissions are usually in the 5-30% range for different products. 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 you sent them on the affiliate product.
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 read my article on how to make money with Amazon affiliates on this link.

Once you register for the Amazon affiliate program, and you can register here, you will be able to generate an affiliate link for every single product you want to promote.
Amazon will give you a 4-8% commission for all your sales through their affiliate program.
One of the best affiliate programs that are similar to Amazon 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% on your affiliate sales.
One more advantage with Aliexpress over Amazon affiliate program is the thing that 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…
