  1. The affiliate marketing companies have definitely changed over time. I wonder how it differs from having your own built-in affiliate marketing program.

  2. Hello Rob,

    Affiliate Marketing is one of the best and lucrative ways to make money online. Shareasale and CJ are one of the best and popular affiliate networks with thousands of Merchants from different categories. Thanks for sharing them.

  3. Great list of affiliate marketing companies, I tried most of them and they work fine, my only surprise is that JVzoo and Muncheye made your list but W+ didn’t, I thought W+ was bigger and better than those two.

  4. Bloggers doing affiliate marketing needs first to build a great mindset and dedication
    unfortunately all the courses describe the steps as a follow them and you will reach your destination

    Few gurus dedicate part of their courses to the importance of being patient and focus, also building audience and not a non related blog posts
    All courses provide the steps and you follow and don’t get any result so you quit

    • Hi there, ive got no skin in the game other than just starting again, 15 years later, after having some moderate success in creating page views. Im talking of Solo Build It. They have loads of sites in the top 5% of searches.

    I want to concentrate since i lost my job due to covid.
    How it goes?

  8. Are there any Affiliate management companies that structure their commission on a tiered basis? I’ll explain why I’m asking: I work for a gifting e-commerce company. Customers create a profile with us, which they log into when they want to start ordering and when they want to re-order gifts. We do currently work with Affiliates, but we are looking into ways to incentivise publishers by paying them a higher % commission for the number of NEW customers they bring to our site versus the number of existing users that come back to us a second or third time. But we don’t know if they are able to influence customer behaviour. Is there is a similar model out there that does this? And if so, how do they do it? Does anyone have any thoughts that they can share?
