When selecting an affiliate marketing company, you will want to look for a company that has been in business for some time. You will want to associate with a company that pays on time and offers good support. It is a good idea to use several affiliate companies but not so many that it gets confusing. Keep in mind that most affiliate companies do have a minimum amount you have to reach before you hit payout.
Over the years I have worked with a number of different affiliate companies. Surprisingly, some of the more popular ones were not my favorites. The popular Commission Junction is an affiliate company I did not have success with. Though I made several sales with them, I did not make them in the time period they wanted (this was early in my career when I was learning). I logged in one day to find they had removed my commissions. So though I made the sale, because it was not done in their time frame, I lost any earnings. Needless to say, I stopped using them. Happily I have done very well with many others.
Two of my favorite Affiliate companies are Amazon and MoreNiche. Amazon is great because they have so many products and people trust them. I recommend using EasyAzon to add Amazon links and pictures to your website. It will save you hours of time! As you are adding your articles you can easily add pictures and links to Amazon products.

General Overview of my favorite affiliate marketing companies. These are all free to join.
Market Health – Market Health specializes in heath and beauty products. Excellent products and payouts. This is where you will find the lastest “hot” products from herbal supplements to teeth whiteners.
MoreNiche – MoreNiche is a great place for beginners and the experienced. Hands on affiliate managers will guide you to success. They have a lot of affiliate information including banners and articles.
Lazy Profits– Lazy Profits has a wide variety of products ranging from As Seen On TV to email zip submit offers. Gifts, flowers, dating, credit card relief, holiday and seasonal, home and garden offers can all be found at the Lazy Profits site.
Amazon – Though Amazon starting commissions are low at 4% (they increase with the number of sales you have), they have a huge range of products and consumers trust them. This is one of my favorite affiliate sites because I know I can find almost anything I want to sell on there. If you opt to try it, I highly recommend you join the membership site Affiliate Tools HQ.
