Where To Find An Affiliate Program

There are many affiliate marketing companies out there that have many things to choose from.

There are also store affiliate programs like…

These are stores with a lot of selection that most people already feel comfortable buying from.

There are affiliate companies like Impact and PartnerStack which I use. They are primarily software, but may offer some other items as well.

Another company that has a lot of items is Share A Sale. They are used by a lot of YouTubers and Instagram influencers as an additional income stream. They have a great mix to go with a lot of different styles of online courses.

Are you selling affiliate products

Lastly, don’t forget to check the product website of the products you are already using. The affiliate page link will usually be in the footer at the bottom. If you can’t find it there, just search the name of the product with affiliate added to it.

You do not have to limit yourself to only one affiliate program. You can choose more than just one company to be an affiliate for.

Best Affiliate Programs For You

Whatever affiliate program you decide to sign up with, be sure to read their rules and terms of service before you apply with them. Every affiliate network is going to have different terms and limits you will need to stay within.

You may need to sell a minimum amount to stay on their program like Amazon. You may be limited to where you share those links or how you can use their name. This is a way for them to protect their brand.

Find the one that allows you to use the affiliate link in a way that best fits you and your students.
