Participating in affiliate programs is also a good way to earn money online. An affiliate program pays you by sales or leads. Meaning if someone buys their products or signs up for their programs by clicking the link on your website, then you get paid. This is also known as PPA. Generally PPA pays much more than PPC and PPM.
There are many affiliate programs out there. The ones I found the most profitable are forex and poker programs.
eToro has the best affiliate program in the Forex Industry.
As an eToro affiliate, you can choose between 2 plans:
1. Earn a 25% revenue share(lifetime) of the revenues eToro generates from your referred users.
2. Earn a one time payment of up to $200 for each new depositing trader you refer.
There are many affiliate programs out there. So rather than joining them individually, it is better to join an affiliate network which consists of a lot of affiliate programs.
Shareasale is a good one to join. It has about 3000 affiliate programs for publishers(website owners) to join. The upside for this program is that all the merchants have prepaid, so you don’t need worry about not getting paid from a particular affiliate program.
Once you sign up, browse through the Merchant list to find an affiliate program that you like to join.
