January 18, 2016 - Affiliate marketing is a complex niche, and it can take a lot of time to learn all of the nuances of the affiliate industry. There are a lot of affiliate marketing books out there that can help would-be affiliates to learn about SEO, social media marketing, networking and writing effective sales copy. Here is a quick run-down of some of the best affiliate marketing books for new and intermediate level affiliates.
This book is crammed full of hundreds of tips and creative tricks as well as interesting case studies.
Rosalind Gardner’s 2007 title is still one of the most popular affiliate marketing books, and with good reason.
While Gardner’s book is not quite as detailed as some of the other books in this list, it is clear, concise and takes a no-nonsense approach to affiliate marketing. Focused and consistent effort is the secret to success, and that is exactly what this book promotes. Topics covered include using list building, building up a Google+ presence, and building up your reputation as an expert. This affordable title is packed full of tips and tricks for people who want to build up a strong presence on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest and other social networks.
For starters affiliate marketing is how I make my living and I know it works with very little computer knowledge required, man,  if I can do it anyone can! I am going to give you a basic rundown on what affiliate marketing is just to keep things simple, by the way, that is the secret to affiliate marketing, don’t make it more complicated than it needs to be!
Affiliate marketing is essentially an online middleman, you are a go between the retailer and the buyer for a fee.
There are many different techniques used in affiliate marketing but the most basic and consistent method is blogging. Blogging is just one form of affiliate marketing, you can set up individual sales pages and write quick reviews on certain products that you are promoting. This is the sweet part of being an affiliate marketer, your cost to be an affiliate marketer is next to nothing. So as you can see there isn’t much cost to consider when you are thinking about affiliate marketing as a way to make money online.
Here is an important note, never, never, purchase a training program that offers a set price for affiliate marketing training. You are going to hear from every scam artist on the Net as well as programs that just can’t deliver the goods, and there are many!
All inclusive training platform: There are only a few affiliate training programs that I have found over the years that offer a platform where what you see is what you get, no hidden fees. The training provider should offer everything you need to run your online business with one fee. Use an established affiliate training provider, one that has a track record, check them out with the BBC for peace of mind. I actually have 10 times as many approved programs on this site as there are poor or scammy products. Hi Mike Sir, I like to appreciate your well written article and it will very helpful for me because i want to start online marketing.
Hi Vicky, I think it is admirable that you are trying to start a blog on your own but to be honest why don’t you start at Wealthy Affiliate where you can learn how to blog for free and also get hosting and two free websites thrown in. Affiliate marketing sounds good but I have very little computer skills is it still an option for me? Hi Euginia, when I first started I had almost very little exposure to computers but the program I found after a few failed attempts basically took me by the hand and walked me through it. As per my last post, Affiliate marketing has been for a long time, and remains to be, one of the greatest and simplest ways to earn money online today. Without further adieu, below are my top 5 picks (In reverse order) for profitable affiliate marketing opportunities in 2013.
About Latest Posts Paul GrahamInternet Marketer & Publisher at Paul Graham Business & Marketing SystemsPaul Graham is the author of several ebooks including The Online Success Complete Cash Blueprint and The 21 Hottest and Most Profitable Traffic Tactics and Targeting Tips for 2015. In this post I’ll be discussing some of the best affiliate networks, and provide people alternatives to sticking with Clickbank. There’s nothing wrong with Clickbank as such, but the problem is, that it can be pretty competitive. The reason I slotted that in there, was because in the Clickbank Marketplace when you are looking at products to promote, some of the easiest keywords to make money with are product names, and product name review.
I for one prefer to promote physical products, although I do still promote a lot of digital stuff from Clickbank too.
Keep in mind that Clickbank auto-approves all affiliates, but most other networks are not that easy. Also quite a few, but not all networks, require telephone contact with you before they will accept you, this is mainly the CPA networks. These are all pretty straight forward questions, but it helps to have a good answer ready to give them. Commission Junction – are probably the largest affiliate network there is, and they have a huge range of niches and products.
Linkshare – These guys are not that hard to get accepted into, which is good, and they also have a large range of products to promote, including some great electronics and gadgets. ShareAsale – Another decent sized network, and again acceptance is not too hard here either. Market Health – This is a great natural health market place, with great commissions and a large range of products. MoreNiche – Yet another great health network, with products for all sorts of conditions.
Max Bounty – These guys are a CPA network, and they have a lot of different offers, ranging from debt relief and insurance to health and beauty. There are of course many other networks out there that are also good, however these are some of the best affiliate networks. I write about various topics to do with Internet Marketing and strive to provide the best free resource for people wanting to develop online businesses. I found this post very encouraging becasue there are other networks out there to work with, and other opportunities.
Nice to hear from you, and great to see you are getting stuck into affiliate marketing, all the best!! Clickbank is the best option for software and ebooks, but if your product is a physical product then I think you should try Commission Junction. Great list Matt thank you, I use a few of these myself however have found the most success with Clickbank.
I also love the info Clickbank gives to the user so they can choose a good product to promote without the need to actually speak to or email a member of staff. Yeah I agree that Clickbank does make life very easy for people and I assume this is why they do so well!! Thanks Matt, I helps to know what networks can be trusted, and what steps to take in order to be accepted, especially for a newbie which can be overwhelming (been there!). I do have a question, for an authority site, is it better to keep the sentences and paragraphs short or does the content need to look well thought out and educated, such as techniques that they teach in college for essay writing? I think with any content that you are using for an affiliate site, which is what I assume you are referring to here, should not be too long, and should be informing the reader and coming across as unbiased.
With Buyer keywords it really is just about thinking what is the customers intention when they are typing these into the search engine.


You do need a quality site though that is well structured with decent posts and pages on the site. Thanks for your input, It is always worthwhile.I have tried click bank, share a sale and a few others. Matt Carter Reply:April 16th, 2010 at 4:55 pmSounds like a good idea Grant, maybe I will do that! What I have been receiving from you in the form of advice and the products you recomened is great.
I don’t know anything about that Commission Junction rule, I have had sites accepted that are not that old. Thanks matt for this information as newbie i started to make a few sale with some of the network and looking forward to register with others but my problem is that i don’t have a website can you advice on how to set up a good website. Great to hear from you again, looks like you are becoming a regular on the blog which is great to see. Thanks for more good information… I have been thinking about getting started with some physical products. Made the mistake of making my first site in haste, but since starting to use your FREE 12 Part Video Coaching Series I have started to see affiliate marketing in a different light, Keep up the good work m8, and im eternally grateful for a blog like this. If anyone uses Amazon,can they tell me if you can set it up in such a way that it will divert viewers to their own particular country. Hey, Matt here, I'm a full time Super Affiliate, 33 years old, and live in New Zealand with my wife and son. Coming in at 384 pages, this book is incredibly detailed and it can be heavy reading, but it is well organized so that confident affiliates can simply skim through the book to find the sections that they want to read. If you are short on time and want nothing but high quality information, check this book out.
If you prefer to focus on one niche instead of spreading your efforts across dozens of niches, and are interested in building up a passive income, then you will learn a lot from Scott.
If you currently feel overwhelmed when faced with your HootSuite control panel, or you don’t even know what HootSuite is, then you could learn a lot by reading this book full of tips and strategies. Once you have a good grounding in the basics of affiliate marketing you can start to narrow your focus and look at more specialist books based on the thing that makes your business special. Everyone has a talent, and if you harness that talent you will have a greater chance of succeeding than you would as a jack-of-all trades.
He is also a top affiliate marketer, search engine optimization specialist, teacher, speaker and best-selling author. So here I am writing a blog post with the hopes it will find someones eye and they too can experience the life that affiliate marketing has given our family.
You enter into an agreement with a retailer to sell their product and in return they agree to pay you a fee. Blogging is when you set up a website and write about products and services or just general interest stuff.
Where can you go out and potentially make 100’s of thousands of dollars and put out less than a hundred dollars a month to operate a business, honestly,  none come to my mind! Affiliate marketing is the real deal and offers a great way to make honest and great money online risk free. Like I stated earlier you do not need to spend big bucks on training, if you spend more than $60 bucks a month then you are getting ripped off, you are paying for for tools or manufactured courses that you don’t need. These companies have no interest in support once you have paid their entrance fee and usually the material that I see is of really poor quality. You will need this, you will need that, your head will spin and you will be scratching your head wondering what the hell you will really need to make a living online. You will need a community environment where members help each other learn from their mistakes and success. Most training platforms upsell the crap out of you, they offer a low monthly membership fee and make their money off upsells that they say you need.
You don’t need to buy into systems or gimmicks just keep it simple and you will be well on your way to making great money online with very minimal overhead. Over the years I have been scammed numerous times by products and services that have claimed to help me build something real online. It’s always important that your affiliate campaign uses positive language when promoting a product. You are absolutely right that a person should be positive and as affiliate case studies demonstrate that being positive makes people feel positive which puts them in a spending mood, good for affiliates. I only have one product at this moment that I fully endorse because it has the most check marks by the requirements I feel will benefit my readers.
You will have access to the best training and not only create a professional looking blog but learn how to have it rank where people will see it. I have applied some of the info you have provided in your articles with great success, thank you Blake. I started making money online with their help and I am still a member because I benefit from their support and updated training.
With affiliate marketing you choose which companies and which products you want to promote, and in some instances you can receive anything up to 75% of the total purchase price.
Clicksor offers its partners the chance to earn money by offering contextual, keyword targeted, and clickable text ads from within the content of your website or blog. Boasting advertisers such as Adidas and Reebok at the top of the tree, as you work your way down you also won’t be disappointed.
When it comes to really big name advertisers, Commission Junction has to be the number one name in affiliate marketing. You can easily find thousands upon thousands of different information products in just as many niches. Paul is a leading authority in making money online, traffic generation, effective link building, and landing page design. I do look forward to hearing and learning about some more of the strategies you are offering and do hope that this would be of great value and key to my success. So far you are the only person that I trust to do this type of thing with because you are really there to help. If you just branch out a little, you’ll find there are other networks, with great physical products that convert extremely well and have less competition. When you are considering a product to promote make sure you choose BUYER keywords to target, do NOT fall into the trap of targeting info seeker keywords (end of rant). However although there is still plenty of easy money to be made targeting these keywords in Clickbank, and variations of these, there is a sea of opportunity out there, with less competition when you venture to other networks. So with that said, I have listed below some other networks that you might like to consider. If you don’t have a website, then you can just buy a domain and set up a wordpress blog template of one, add 6-10 articles on the niche topic, make it look pretty, and off you go. So make sure that you do not miss the call from them, or you’ll instantly get rejected. I am not suggesting you falsify information, I am just saying that the more detail, and the more you can show them that you have a clue and know what you are talking about, the much higher the chance of getting accepted.
Build an online business with my free 12 part internet marketing video training course now! All that is provided here is a list of alternative networks one can use to promote other folks products…sounds to me like you missed the point of the article. I don’t think writing an essay style would be great for conversions, as it might be too factual and not captivate the reader.


The more precise they are they more research they have done and the more ready they are to buy. I am new at this, been active on the net for just over eight months and five of them wasted by following a load of rubbish. You give my some golden nuggets each time I read or listen to your shared clips or reading material.
Recently I have started putting up some physical product sites as opposed to my IM side of things. The principles laid out in this book work equally well for affiliate marketers and for people selling their own products. The book is a few years old now, and it is aimed at merchants rather than affiliate marketers, but it still contains some valuable insights into how the world of affiliate marketing works. If you are interested in building up an online presence as an authority in one particular niche then you should give this $2.99 title a look.
Every affiliate marketers should have a good understanding of how to leverage social networks to promote their products and their brand.
All you will need as an affiliate marketer is a website and a registered domain name, I always like to keep my marketing skills up to date with all the new marketing techniques that come down the line so I would also recommend a platform that offers the most current marketing techniques.
You don’t have to worry about hidden costs with the right program and you are in control of who you sell for and how you run your online business.
Then there’s the flip side, while reviewing Internet marketing programs you walk the fine line of going overboard or going to cheap. A Keyword tool is a must in the affiliate marketing business and this should also be included in your monthly membership fee.
You cannot speak in any negative context whatsoever, and that includes speaking badly of the competition!
On a review site on the other hand such as this that’s not always possible when reviewing certain products. What separates this site from many review sites is that this site is very impartial and objective. Check out my #1 program for affiliate marketing training, they offer a free starter course no strings attached, good luck Mike. The process is fully automated by Clicksor and the wide selection of advertisers available means their text ads are highly targeted thus offering a more professional and less spammy experience for your readers. There’s plenty of excellent products from a whole host of  big brand (and not so big brand) advertisers, from niches across the board, and with commissions that’ll make your mouth water!
By becoming an Amazon affiliate, you can get up to ten percent commission on qualifying purchases.
You can follow Paul on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, or why not get in touch right here. But there are a HUGE amount of buyer keyword opportunities for products that you can target in here.
It does take work to make anything on line, work that involves thought, effort, time and some sacrifice.
So if they have brand name in the keyword then they have most likely done a fair amount of searching, so I consider that a buyer keyword. I am paticularly interested in healthcare so thank you for the health affiliate site links. I’m still learning on a continuous basis and enjoy receiving valuable tips that works. Topics covered include social media marketing, feeds, coupons, how to write compelling content, and much more. Some companies are less worried about how you sell their products but the real profitable merchants have strict guidelines.
My program of choice offers free hosting and as many website templates as I can handle so my online business has no limitations as it grows, and it will grow. The cheap programs give you no support, inferior training delivery, crappy videos, basically you will not get the quality of training that you need to be successful. Like any new endeavor affiliate marketing has a certain evolution that needs to take place and it all has to happen in a certain sequence for things to make sense and end in an online sale. The only thing that you will need to outsource is a domain name registry for your website name.
Use this chart to compare it to any program that you are thinking about as a training platform. People need to hear that your product is the best on the market, but they don’t want to hear you attack the other product.
There are many scams on the market and they deserve to be raked over the coals so to speak and called out for what they are and at times this can come off quite negative but it is what it is!
There are many good programs and products which I approve ( incentive free) and some that I am on the fence over because they lack certain components that may hurt your chances depending on your skill level, then there are the scams that I bash, rightfully so, cheers Mike. Text based ads are also less intrusive as in-content advertising has a more natural feel to it. The commissions may not be as hefty as the likes of C.J or Clickbank, however the Amazon brand inspires almost instant trust and its affiliate program is widely acknowledged as one of the best, if not the best out there at the moment. The great thing though is that work that is done continues to work for you when you work on other projects.
I was going to go with Clickbank but now am wondering if I should re-investigate these other options?
Additionally I need access to the most current Internet Marketing training available at my beckoning call.
I love waking up in the morning to see how much money I made while I was sleeping, people are literally shopping around the clock, no closed signs on Internet retailers doors.
There is a sweet spot when searching for quality training programs that start at roughly $39 and end at $60 a month if you are paying more or less than that range I have found you are not getting the value for your money and are setting yourself up for failure.
Most people start affiliate marketing like I did, part time,  so when they sit down to work on their online business after work or on a day off they need answers to problems that arise now, not tomorrow, this is where live chat pays big dividends. I don’t want to scare you off because it really isn’t that hard, but you do need someone to hold your hand to get the maximum benefit from your training, the program that I use gives that to you! With over $1.8 Billion in affiliate sales in the last decade and an average of over 35,000 sales per day, these huge numbers speak for themselves in regard to the popularity that the virtual man on the street can have vs. Even if you’re just a home-based blogger, if you have a large social network, or are developing and maintaining any kind of content based website, the Amazon program offers its partners linking tools that are a breeze to use and will definitely help you earn a quality income from your website and with very little effort on your part (providing you have the traffic).
Made some money with SaleAShare promoting some software & based on something I have experience on (much easier). Once the customer leaves your sight they bring with them an affiliate link or cookie that behind the scenes identifies them as one of your clients and when a purchase is made you will get a commission.
Clicksor also pays relatively fast (every two weeks) through PayPal or by check, and also offers its own 10% referral program.
Remember you are actually an affiliate to all the items that are being reviewed so you are always in a win, win situation.
However, if you are a relatively new blogger or webmaster, this might not be the program for you just yet, as Clicksor will want to see moderate traffic going to your blog first. The size of commissions can also be very generous and usually range from about 50% upwards.
