How to find affiliate programs to join and products and services to promote on your blog

You already know that becoming an affiliate and promoting products or services is one way you can make money (a percentage of every sale you refer to a merchant’s site) with your blog.

All you have to do is find something that would benefit the people who come to your blog, talk about it in a post, without forgetting to add your affiliate link as mentioned in this post.

Of course, your site must be able to attract the right kind of traffic. Without anyone visiting, no one will be reading your stuff and clicking your links. And that means no referrals, which translates to no sales – and money.

Why would you look for affiliate programs to join

You can do this if you still don’t have a product of your own to sell. It is easy to look for something useful and recommend it while you still work on your own premium products.

There are many similar products out there you can decided not just one or two but more. For example, when recommending hosting companies, premium WordPress plugins, blogging ebooks or shopping carts, you are free to list a number of useful but similar products – and link to each using your unique affiliate links.

In a way you limit the number of products in a given category without denying your site visitors a chance to choose between the various recommendations.

Sometimes you may have a useful ebook, video, audio file or e-course that you create solely to give away for free and decide to add your affiliate links to it, not merely because you want the money but because you think the receiver of your freebie would find your recommendation useful and be thankful for it.

Check this post for someone who successfully did this – and may be go ahead and listen to her talk about how she did it in the podcast I have linked to. It might give you more fresh ideas to share your recommendations in a meaningful way and increase your affiliate earnings from commissions you get paid by the companies and individuals behind the different programs you decide to join.

It feels good getting paid for recommending something in good faith. You can’t afford to not smile (even deep within) when you sign in your email and find an email in your inbox (from one of the companies whose products you’re promoting) prompting you to initiate a payout to your PayPal account anytime.

Other sites like Commission Junction include Impact Radius, Rakuten Linkshare, Share A Sale and JvZoo.

Does this mean that there are only 3 sites like this? The answer is no. Start with the three and then, may be, look for similar sites later.


e-Junkie allows people to sell digital and physical products and so many people sell their ebooks and various products through the site. And yes they have affiliate programs for most of those products. Search their marketplace for products to buy and promote.

You can also check ClickBank, a site similar to e-Junkie, and sign up to become an affiliate.

Footer or main navigation bar of websites selling products or services

The fastest ways to know if a website you’ve visited has an affiliate program, is to check the main navigation bar or the footer for words like ‘Affiliates’, ‘Partner with Us’, ‘Referral Program’ or ‘Affiliate Program’.

All you have to do then is to sign up to grab your link and start referring people that come to your blog, in your email list or followers on social networks.

Some sites will require you to be their customer before allowing you into their programs but some don’t have conditions like this.
