    I'm currently using Amazon affiliate program but commissions suck so I want to change it. Maybe it is the biggest affiliate network in the world but 2.5% for tech products?

    That's the biggest reason why I want to change to something else. My question is:
    • What is your favorite affiliate program and why?
    Or should I choose affiliate program after I choose a niche? If this is the case, can you post here some of the best 'how to choose a niche?' threads on BHW?

    I found some but I'm sure that I can't find everything.

    Thanks :)

    not for the lounge really? If you post in the right sections then the right people will see it and you won't have to bump your own thread

    Gheghe 2.5% these days hahaha and I was already pissed at 6% :D

    Fuck em! Go learn CPA/PPC, it's harder, bigger risks but the rewards are far more greater.

    I don't really think there is a best affiliate program use whichever one you can make money from the easiest

    Check out clickbank, there is many products there you can promote for a good enough % cut. Research it.

    I have a friend of mine using amazon affilate site. He once advised me not to inculde any product that has a percentage less than 8 percent on the site.
    Below that is not benificial

    My mistake, sorry.

    Yes, it sucks!

    Can you suggest me any good CPA guide on BHW?

    I read your one and a couple others but I don't know if that's everything so please help... :)

    The CPA I'm involved in ATM is far too advanced for you and requires budget.

    Start with the basics. I assume you read my sticky in the making money section, start with perfecting that. You got to understand, any and every path you choose within IM will take time. And I am not talking about a couple days but weeks, months.

    The days of fast cash through tons of BH methods are over.

    Thank you very much!

    I have a small budget of $50 and zero CPA experience.

    However, I will pretty soon start a journey following your steps and I'm sure that people will help me along the way.

    My ultimate goal is $20 or $30/day until June of this year. I know that this is possible! :)

    Well, at one point I was homeless and had no money and zero IM knowledge ;)

    If $20/$30 is your Ultimate goal you shouldn't put such a short amount of time on it. It's already june in 2,5 months and I can tell you from experience, setting up a steady $30 a day in just 2,5 month will most likely be harder than you expecting it to be with zero experience.

    When I just started out with IM I read tons of stuff, read all the people that were making money I though I would be banking very fast..Boy was I wrong!

    Now I'm not saying it isn't possible but it will be very hard so don't give up if you won't reach that goal because you will find out soon enough that it is a lot harder than you already thought ;)

    depends on what you're selling. most affiliate networks cater to specific niches.
    check out affpaying.com it's a good resource for looking at new affiliate networks. popular choices: peerfly, clickbank, maxbounty.
    offervault.com another good resource if you're looking for a particular offer.
    so what comes first? chicken or the egg? cpa offer or the niche? it's fluid. doesn't matter. but usually i go with the offer first, then research how can i promote that, make the website, and get to work.
