Want to know how to monetise your blog or your niche website? Consider adding some offers from the Top 10 Affiliate Programmes as promotional adverts in your niche.
I’ve researched what I consider are the top 10 affiliate programs. The programs are not ranked in any order by the way. I can not recommend any of them personally. I will leave that to the Affiliate Marketing masters out there.
1 Amazon Associates – https://affiliate-program.amazon.co.uk/
Amazon is probably one of the most well know on-line retail stores. by becoming an affiliate or associate you can monetize your web site and promote products sold on the Amazon Store and be earning up to 10% in referrals.
Our friends over at Authority Hacker said this:
Did you know Amazon associates is one of the biggest affiliate marketing programs in the world?!
That's exactly why we did a deep dive into the Amazon associates for a recent blog post. It covers everything you could imagine, from getting started to dealing with a dreaded suspension.
We work with Amazon Associates every day so like to think we know our stuff, and I hope you'll agree too!2 Apple iTunes – http://www.apple.com/uk/itunes/affiliates/
Another widely accepted on-line & mobile store – the affiliate program requires approval but once approved you can link to music, apps and books via iTunes, the App store, iBooks and the Mac App store.
If you are thinking of joining this program I strongly advise reading through the FAQ’s on the website.
Some of the lesser known programs
3 Affiliate Future – http://www.affiliatefuture.co.uk/default.asp?id=1
Free to become an affiliate – no set up fees.
You subscribe to Merchants and allow their advertising on your website. To earn revenue from your sites your visitors need to click through on ads. This generates visits, leads or sales for the Merchants.
Typical Merchants: Airlines – Jet2 & Virgin Atlantic, Retailers – Bed Shed, Smart Phone dealers, online gaming.

There is a wide range of Merchants from Food, Bedding, Hair styling products, Airlines, Designer clothing and more.
The affiliate payment terms are available from the website. Paid on Results advise that there innovative software can pay out validated sales commissions in three working days.
