Affiliate Networks

 JVZoo

http://www.jvzoo.com/

JVZoo is the best all-round affiliate network. It combines and excellent user interface with lots of features and low fees.

ClickBank

http://www.clickbank.com

ClickBank has been around a long time. It’s more fiddly and expensive than JVZoo but it also has a huge selection of products worth looking through.

WSO Pro

http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-special-offers/ and https://warriorplus.com/wsopro/

Warrior Special Offers Pro is a great place to find affiliate products as well as to sell them. A huge advantage is that it gives you access to a massive selection of affiliate marketers but on the downside, this also limits your niche somewhat in terms of what you want to sell.

NamOffers

http://www.namoffers.com

Nam was founded by two of my long time friends and what makes them different is the level of free training and content that they constantly put out for members of their network and of their free private Facebook group.

List of Affiliate Networks

http://mthink.com/the-top-20-affiliate-networks-2104/

Those three are the best but there are plenty more, such as Rakuten, CJ and Sharesale. You can find a good list of them here.

Amazon Affiliate Program

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/join/landing/main.html

Selling products as an Amazon affiliate is an entirely different kettle of fish. That said, it’s also still very lucrative if you do it right and it’s useful as a secondary pie to have your finger in. Worth checking out.

Creative Tools

Optimize Press

http://www.optimizepress.com/

Optimize Press is a great tool that makes it easy for you to create landing pages if you have a WordPress site. These pages look the business and they work so they take a lot of the guesswork out of affiliate marketing (which is a good thing!).

Optimizely

https://www.optimizely.com/

Optimizely is somewhat different meanwhile. This one allows you to perform split testing for your landing pages – in other words, to create two slightly different versions and then see which one performs best. This allows you to choose which changes to keep and which ones to reject.

Illustrator

http://www.adobe.com/products/illustrator.html

Illustrator is the best tool for designing graphic ads to use on Facebook and in other places. Why? Because it lets you create them as ‘Vector’ images which have the advantage of never losing resolution and being very easy to edit and manipulate. Of course you can then also use Photoshop to apply effects and make other changes.

Email Marketing

E-Mail marketing is the bedrock of your affiliate marketing campaign. You’ll need an auto-responder to get started with email marketing.

Aweber

Outsourcing

UpWork

UpWork is the new name for ODesk. It’s one of the biggest and most popular freelancing sites out there and a great place to find writers, designers and ad managers who can help you with your work.

Elance

http://www.elance.com/

Elance is another great outsourcing website. Excellent if you want to broaden your search from UpWork and with its own strengths and weaknesses.

People Per Hour

http://www.peopleperhour.com/

People Per Hour is yet another outsourcing site, similar to the others but particularly good for longer term relationships.

Fiverr

http://www.fiverr.com/

Fiverr is a little different because you only find jobs here that cost… five dollars.
