The Best Free Online Affiliate Program

Trying to Find the Best Free Affiliate Program?


Whether you have already taken the time to pick the niche that you want to invest your time promoting, or you are just beginning to look at products, it is important to find the best free affiliate program to promote products through.

So here are my top 5 recommended affiliate programs.


Google AdSense is one of the easies and free ways to start making some money online by simply adding advertisements to your blog and/or website.

How does it work?

After putting adds on your website, there are two different ways that you can begin to make money,

Through Clicks, and through impressions.

You can earn money by having someone click on an advertisement on your website; the price per click ranges anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars.  Clicking your own ads will most definitely get you banned, so don’t ever do it.

You can also make money off of your impressions, which you basically get by simply having people view your pages and posts.

AdSense is simple to add to your website, and can make you a bit of extra cash once you start driving traffic to your website.

Amazon Associates


I’m certain you’ve heard of the online retail giant that goes by the name of Amazon.  If you are familiar with affiliate marketing in any sort of way, than I’m sure you’ve at least heard of the Amazon Affiliate Program.

The Upside

This program is considered by many Affiliate Marketers as the best affiliate program that is in existence today.  Amazon has thousands upon thousands of products, and you can get paid to promote any one of them.

Amazon Associates provides an extremely user friendly interface that allows you navigate with incredible ease.

The Downside

The major down side to the Amazon affiliate program is that it only pays out 4% of the price of the sale.  Which the thought that you will only earn $4 for every $100 sale you make, is not the greatest thing in the world.

Clickbank


If you are looking for an affiliate program that allows you to get high commissions on the products that you promote, then Clickbank is just for you.

The Upside:

Most of the products that are offered on Clickbank are digital in nature and can accessed immediately after a payment is made.  This allows for to different things:

  1. The fact that most of the products can be accessed instantly allows for higher conversion rates due to the fact that the customers does not have to wait for a physical product to be shipped.
  2. The commissions on the products are able to stay high, many of them can range from 50 to 75% of the sales price.

The Downside:

Many of the products that you can promote through Clickbank may be a scam, and it can be difficult to tell.  The scams on there can lead to a high amount of returns, and can affect the trust that your audience has in you.

If you use Clickbank, just be sure that you pick a legitimate and helpful product to promote.

Commission Junction


Commission Junction is one of, if not the largest affiliate network in the world.  They help link together thousands of merchants with affiliate marketers.

The Upside

A large number of companies, many of which are fortune 500 companies use CJ Affiliate as main affiliate system.  This makes it easier for you to connect with large companies and find which affiliate program will work best for you.  There are affiliate programs listed on there for just about any niche that you can think of.

The Downside

The system is a bit difficult to get used to, and the customer support system is not a simple thing to work with either.

Wealthy Affiliate


Wealthy Affiliate is an online affiliate marketing school that will teach you the ins and outs of setting up and building your affiliate site, and getting it to bring traffic in.  Along with all of the information that you can get from them, they also have a great affiliate program.

The Upside

The program walks you through setting up a site to either promote a niche that you pick, and you can also get commissions for promoting them.

You earn $11.25 for every person that you get to sign up for their premium membership, and that commission is reoccurring for every month that person stays a member.

It is free to join the community, and if you upgrade to a premium membership yourself, you will earn double the commissions. ($22.50 per person)

The Downside 

The premium membership does cost $47 a month, but is not required to start making commissions for your referrals.

Their program is the only product you can get a commission from them for promoting.

    1. Hey Justin,
      If you join my top ranked program Wealthy Affiliate you can do everything straight from your phone. However it would be much more difficult than it is with a computer. I know one person who went through all of their training on her phone, until she was able to purchase a computer.
      Hopefully this will help you out. Be sure to ask me if you have any other questions!
