    Hi Dpers, the title says it all, I am new to affiliate marketing and need your precious suggestions about best affiliate marketing programs, I know clickbank for selling ebooks. Please suggest something that can generate some hundred dollars a month. I am not over-expecting as I am just a beginner, however, I do not want to waste my efforts. :) Please help.

    Thanks

    If you like reviewing software then i wrote a post yesterday about Avangate and Bluesnap here.
    You could start with Amazon, post cool stuff your friends might be interested in on facebook with your affiliate link.
    Clickbank imo is horrible, all the products look like scams.

    I agree Clickbank is kind of tough to crack at first and I find morals get in the way of me promoting their stuff, mainly in the IM niche... but there are plenty of other niches to choose from with "honest" products in there.

    Peerfly is probably the best for newbies but they've set a requirement of proof of earnings/reference from another network for newcomers..

    Matomy market is an international aff network with lots of foreign offers, not sure if you would be accepted but your leads will actually get credited. Worked with my AM and tested conversion to double check that leads were going through before promoting, very reassuring.

    Gambling affiliates can make thousands a month. I think this is the most profitable niche. You just need people to register to the sites you advertise and create revenue for you.

    Clickbank is without any doubts the best affiliate program, like mentioned before. However, if you would like to know some decent alternatives, in my opinion cj.com, linkshare.com or shareasale.com are worthy of mentioning.

    Commission Junction and Shareasale are my preferred today. Linkshare was my preferred years ago and my first love. Anyway, I started with Amazon, and it's very easy to make some money with it. It's a very famous company, this means trust and people love to spend money there. Unfortunately the affiliate fee is very low.

    I agree with ClickBank, but you can also try Cj or Jvzoo.com. Do some research and give it a try. Find what suits you best.

    cj.com and clickbank are both good, but you may also want to consider CPA. A network like peerfly. It is often easier to get a lead than a sale, and there are no refunds taken back from you (in my experience with CPA). It just depends on how targeted your traffic is.

    There is clickbank which is very good of course though it depends on what you want to sell, how you want to sell it and how passive you want your income to be!

    I tried using amazon and it is pretty useless. I also heard that only if the person who clicked on the ad buys immediately then they will pay (pretty lame).

    I think Cj is the best option and you can make money if you work on that.
