Regardless what type of product you wish to promote, item, software or service you wish you promote, chances are there is an affiliate program for this, including hotels, food companies, software companies, gaming, health, crypto, other software, golf, dogs, music, etc, etc. Below is a list of the most reputable affiliate companies with tens of thousands of offers at your disposal.
When it comes to new and upcoming companies we look at a few important factors before deciding to promote their offers.
Look for a network which has a good selection of offers to promote. Less than 100 we would usually pass as it tells us it’s not a big network.
Instant payout terms is not always an option but you want to get paid within 60 days. Be careful in this case. If the minimum payout is $1000, can you make this amount on that network?
Is there a fast response from support? It’s very easy to contact and test.
How long do the cookies last? The longer the better but if only 7 days I would pass. Most programs offer lifetime cookie or 365 day cookie.
Are reputable brands and companies use this network? Seeing branded names and people you are familiar with is a good sign. Low quality products, sales page and if the general look of the site is bad, it’s not a good sign.
