Article Body:
The big positive about affiliate marketing is that it allows you to earn
an income without actually having to create and advertise your own
product. By becoming an affiliate marketer, you can collect a commission
every time someone follows your affiliate link to the site of the actual
product seller and makes a purchase.

The size of your commission will vary depending on the product for which
you are an affiliate, and your methods of promoting it, but they can run
as high as 75%.

If you have a blog and would like to start monetizing it by becoming an
affiliate, there is a trio of affiliate program providers which you
should investigate. They are Commission Junction, Click Bank, and Link
Share.

In order to maximize the percentage of the commissions you receive, you
should sign up with either Click Bank or Commission Junction, which set
up affiliate programs for all the big membership websites and vendors of
informational products, and those programs are usually the most
lucrative. Standard commissions range from 25% to 75%.

Should you choose Click Bank as the place to promote your affiliate
programs, beware of the payment threshold. It can be set as high as $100,
meaning that Click Bank will not pay you any of your commission earnings
until you have accumulated $100. If you would prefer to get small checks
every couple of weeks, you’ll have to change the threshold setting
yourself.
If you want to find some affiliate programs with huge audiences, Link
Share is the place to go. They will allow you to affiliate yourself with
some of the biggest names around, like Walmart, PetSmart, and even Apple.

Although their affiliate commission are considerably lower than those
offered by Commission Junction and Click Bank, at around 5% to 15%, the
chances of someone buying multiple or big ticket items from those vendors
is much higher. You can expect the companies which pay commissions
through Link Share to issue payments once a month.

Don’t see any companies whose products you’d like to promote among those
offered by Click Bank, Commission Junction, or Link Share? You have the
option of being an affiliate marketer for Google’s AdSense and AdWords,
or for Ebay. Both have commission structures which will make it worth
your while.
