Popular Affiliate Programs

One of the best ways to monetize your blog is to sell affiliate products. Unlike advertising that pays you a few cents or a few dollars when your visitors click on the ads, affiliate programs pay you a commission when your visitors click on the ad and actually buy a product.

Depending on the product and the commission that the program pays, you could make a few dollars per sale or even a few hundred dollars. Finding good affiliate programs with quality products and the top commissions is key to maximizing your success with your blog.
