Once you have chosen your niche and started your blog around it, wanting it to get monetized is very normal.

Affiliate Marketing is the best possible to get your blog monetized.

In this article, I will list the 10 best affiliate platforms in 2022, where you will find digital products, physical products, big and small brands.

You just have to find products in your niche, signup for the program, and get started with your Affiliate Marketing.

Without wasting time let’s dive in, and learn more about these platforms.

10 Best Affiliate Platforms And Networks Compared (2022)

1.  Amazon Associates

Amazon Associate Platform

If you are new to Affiliate Marketing, Amazon Associates Affiliate Program is best to get started as this is the easiest to understand and signup for.

Amazon Associates is best for physical products, so if your niche is around physical products you can go for the Amazon Associate program.

One thing you need to know about the program is, once you sign up you have to make a sale within 6 months of the signup date, or else the account will be shut down by Amazon.

One of the best thing about this program is the referral commission system.

For example,

You are promoting a product worth $10, and the person who ended up on Amazon with your $10 link and makes a purchase of $1000,

you will be getting commission for this $1000 too, but only if it is in the cookie duration.

After the slashing of commission rate and moving the model from revenue to flat-rate commission model,

many big affiliate marketers were not happy with Amazon Associate program as it canceled the advantage they had.

But let me tell you this is still the best option for anyone who is just starting Affiliate Marketing.

If you want to sell in different countries you will have to register for each country separately.

In this photo, you will find the commission rates that the program offers.

Founded in 2000 by Brian Littleton, ShareASale is one of the most popular affiliate platform in the market.

ShareASale is one of the best and most trusted affiliate platforms in the market right now.

What makes ShareAsale different from most of the other platforms is, it has both digital and physical products.

The commission rates and cookie duration is decided by the merchants.

One thing that I have noticed with ShareAsale is,

if your website has low-quality content it may take time for them to review your application to signup for their network or they might even reject your application.

So before you signup analyze and evaluate your own blog website.

The minimum payout offered on the network is $50, which is good in my opinion.

  3. ShareASale Exclusive Merchants

With Click Bank, you need to be careful while selecting products in your niche for marketing because there are many low-quality products on the platform.

If you end up marketing such low-quality scammy products, you can damage your reputation, which will affect your future sales.

On this platform your get more digital products than physical products.

From my personal experience just like Click Bank products, you have to be careful with what software products you are marketing.

Better you first use and then market products on these platforms. Once you end up marketing low-quality products with high promises you might damage your own reputation.
