Affiliate Program! Hmm.. Just did a small research and there appears already crowded … It's really difficult to choose one!
If you cared, I was lost from blogging unexpectedly. It took me time to recover from the consequences after the devastating earthquake. A 7.9 in Richter scale, the quake was really strong to cause huge damage on precious cultural heritage in Kathmandu. Why would it spare me! We were forced to dismantle our house and begin a fresh restart. Uhh! Very painful.
Anyway, it's over. The life must go on. And now I turned towards affiliate marketing with a hope to make some serious money online. Seriously? For that I need a good affiliate program!
Disclaimer: This post is not intended to teach you anything; or to recommend the best affiliate program, but to share my findings in this quest. Saying that, very naturally, i'm expecting your input, views and suggestions in this course.
After three day's search, reading so many blog posts and sales pages, my selection narrowed down to three affiliate programs that are currently popular in the market. These programs are run by success giants of affiliate marketing – Google Sniper, Affilorama, Wealthy Affiliate.
I encountered with Google Sniper in my search for affiliate programs. The term Google gives some impression of reliability and we are positively inclined towards it from the very beginning. However, on landing on the official page, It offered no information except that it is a system that makes huge money very easily. To the utmost surprise, you can't even guess what the system is, and in fact, what the Google Sniper is – an automating software, an ebook, a video or the magic wand?
It takes your some effort to discover the fact that the Google Sniper is a training course on Internet Marketing. Only after joining this course you'll learn that there are 25 training videos, and a 101 page e-book that teaches you how to make money. And the idea behind is simple – go to ClickBank, select a saleable product, create a webpage and get it rank at the top page of Google searches and direct traffic to the selected product to earn money. Simple enough, isn't it?
Even more greater fact you'll discover after some time is that the product is not associates with Google in any way.
I tried to join the program but it won't allow me without paying. There's at least a $1 expense simply to try the system for one month.
This is the second affiliate program I discovered in my quest.
Affilorama is a community dedicated to affiliate training. It basically is a subscription-based affiliate marketing training portal with written and video lessons, tools and support. Affilorama training was created having newbies in mind. It teaches you everything you need to learn about affiliate marketing online. You don’t need to have prior knowledge of marketing or know how to create a website.
That's how the program is described. Pretty convincing, yea?
I joined the program as a free member and truly, it has huge information available. Now I need to decide if I should upgrade for paid membership and which level of membership to choose.
Wealthy Affiliate Program
This is the third affiliate program I discovered in my little quest. The name Wealthy Affiliate raised my skepticism a bit and looked into the program more cautiously.
Once I landed on their page I felt immediately, it is something worthy. Out of these three programs, this one really needs a serious consideration.
The landing page is more convincing and do not look that spammy as other sites. Worthy Affiliate is more of an interactive community of entrepreneurs helping each other make money online.
I've joined the program immediately and will let you know the updates.
Well, these were the programs I filtered down to something where I'll make further research and attempt my fortune.
After looking the photograph of my dismantled house, you must be curious to know how's my current home. Here is an image.
Okay, personal matters aside. Let's return to our topic. As you know, I'm not an expert in this field and looking for your help and suggestions. Please don't hesitate to comment below if you wish to share your views on any affiliate program.
