23 Affiliate Networks for Monetizing Your Website

Many bloggers, myself included, focus on monetizing the blog through ad sales and affiliate programs are sometimes overlooked. While the top earning bloggers (like Darren Rowse and John Chow) rake in plenty of money each month with affiliate programs, most of the rest of us tend to forget about affiliate marketing once we have enough demand to sell ads.

Recently I’ve done a little bit of research to look for some possibilities with affiliate marketing and I thought I’d share some of the networks that I’ve found. Affiliate networks are great for helping you to stay organized and for keeping your income in a few spots rather than having ten different programs with a $5 balance waiting to reach the minimum threshold for a check.

Check out the networks on this list and see if a few stand out to you for monetizing your own website or blog.

Commission Junction

CJ

Commission Junction is one of the larget and most popular affiliate networks around. The allow affiliates to promote a wide variety of products in all different categories. Some programs will pay per sale and others will pay per lead (such as credit card applications and many others).

ClickBank

CB

ClickBank is another one of the leaders; however, unlike Commission Junction, ClickBank sells only electronic/downloadable products, mostly e-books. While Commission Junction serves many major companies, most products being sold through ClickBank are created by individual entrepreneurs who are looking for some help with distribution.

LinkShare

LinkShare

LinkShare is a bit more like Commission Junction with lots of choices, including those from very large companies in a variety of industries with just about any kind of product or service.

pepperjamNETWORK

PepperJam

Pepperjam is a relative newcomer to the scene, but has already been able to put itself in the elite class. As an up-and-coming affiliate network, they are always bringing new advertisers on board that will make the program more lucrative for affiliates.

AzzogleAds

AzoogleAds

The AzzoogleAds affiliate network has been around since 2000. They offer publishers plenty of choices in terms of what products can be promoted and how they can be promoted. They even offer Facebook applications for publishers.

  1. There are a few new ones on that list that I have not seen before. A couple I have recently looked into are MarketLeverage and NeverBlueAds. I have not done much with either one so I can’t say much about them yet.

  2. Thanks for plugging Pepperjam Network!

    Best of luck to all affiliates getting all your ducks in a row for a successful 4th quarter and holiday season!

  6. What a great list! I belong to three of these, but most of the rest I’ve never heard of. I think I’ll take a look at them; never hurts to have more affiliates to possibly market. Good going.

  7. I’ve had great success with LinkShare and Share A Sale. Made lots of good Christmas present money with them last year on my digi scrap blog. Just recently signed up for Pepper Jam and looking forward for taking them for a spin.

  8. I like Commission Junction mainly so I can be an affiliate with bustedtees.

  9. I’m developing http://www.stirtalk.com and bookmarked your list. When I reach the point of inquiring about affiliate relationships, your resource will come in handy.

    One comment about your Blog. I’ve read thousands of them and I must say your Blog is clear, easy to read, and the layout is fantastic.

    Keep up the excellent work.
