Probably one of the best places to start affiliate marketing for new content creators. Amazon has amazing products and is a household name. Millions shop on Amazon every day so all you are really doing is directing traffic. You can make your own “sponsored” posts with ideas like a Back to School Shopping List or an enhancement to your other content. Just over to Amazon.com and go to the bottom of the page to “Become an Affiliate”.
While Amazon is a great resource for affiliate selling, VigLink blows the doors off the online store you can sell for. They have a unique proposition where most of their merchants pre-approved. You get access to online stores like eBay, Groupon, Wish, and Walmart. Plus Amazon!
ShareASale also has a lot of merchants, but you must request each relationship. Rather than partnering with the big names, ShareASale is a great way to connect with more niche types of online stores. We are partnered with VidAngel and recently wrote a post about Guilt Free Game of Thrones with VidAngel that has done very well.
Formerly LinkShare, Rakuten is another affiliate network and gives you access to hundreds of merchants. You do need to apply for each relationship. They have a healthy mix of known stores like Walmart and Best Buy, and some small ones too.
