Chapter 1: Creating an Affiliate Website that Sells like Crazy

A. Affiliate Networks

OK. I’m not going to “baby” you here, but I will cover a few basics first. So many “gurus” tell you to simply join affiliate programs, and you will be on your way to making a bundle of money. That couldn’t be further from the truth. If you have joined any before, you already know this. You will always be faced with the following questions:

What affiliate programs should you join?
How do you promote the programs?
How do you get quality traffic to your affiliate website?

Do you have an affiliate website that makes people want to buy anything? Well, finding the top affiliate programs is the easy part. While some companies have their own in-house affiliate program, others have theirs run by a major affiliate network.The top affiliate networks in my opinion are:

1) Click Bank - Dedicated to digital products, i.e. products that are available by download.
2) Commission Junction - The top affiliate network for companies that sell physical products likecomputers, credit cards, clothing, etc. Some of the biggest internet properties in the world have programs here.
3) Linkshare -Some of the top companies on the web have their programs available here.

4) Performics- Some decent, large brick & mortar companies here.
5) Web Sponsors - Another “boutique” network with a few decent programs such as “free giveaway”programs.

6) Clix Galore - Multi-tier affiliate network offering a decent variety.
7) Fine Clicks - A division of
8) Fast Click - Small network that thoroughly screens merchants and affiliates for quality control.

Finding the top paying affiliate programs at Clickbank, CJ, etc. is easy. You can check their EPC (earning per click) and join those that convert the best. Clickbank calls this "gravity". I will say it Many times. I believe selling Information on the internet is the easiest way to get rich.

Once you have been to the affiliate networks mentioned above and decided which products you'd like to try selling as an affiliate, its time to write/create a sales letter that you will later plug into your website(creating your own website is discussed on our next chapters).
