This has to be the same trust as search engines does on you keeping your content, online repute, existence, presence, and ranking on the top provided that you do not play with them. Online shopping is all about opinions and smartness you need to show for the best results. This is same as we like using Google as the topmost search engine or YouTube as a platform for videos mostly.
Did you ever think?
Why don’t we go for Bing or Daily Motion for these purposes on a regular basis? This is because they have a certain presence and they stick to it with the best quality, fame, presence, and repute and they prove it. This has to take place for affiliate marketing too where your customers will blindly trust you for your products and services and will be sure that you have displayed the products for them, which you have self-tested for sure.
This also comes with the idea that the product you are promoting must be as per customer needs or demographics or insights i.e. you have to know what customer needs instead of promoting something blindly, which is entirely useless.
Hence, product, as well as its promotion, has to be relevant as well as matching in all cases. There are numerous companies running their affiliate campaigns and hiring experienced and smart affiliates for making their products’ sales and giving them handsome commissions for best revenues.
This can be done by making use of any channel i.e. website or word of mouth or any media you as there is no limitation given by the companies because they just need results in the form of sales. More sales you get more revenues you attain and more projects you are provided.
Affiliate marketing programs exist in great number and are mostly reliable. Many experts all over the world get themselves registered in these programs and right after approval, join them as an affiliate. Approvals, on the other hand, from these programs are also not that easy as there are numerous factors to be considered for sure.
Programs successfully manage customers, their invoices, and provide them 24X7 support for the said orders. Many advertisers prefer having these networks as they have related experiences and can manage the things easily on their behalf just because of the trust, reliability, and ease of use they experience. 100s of affiliate programs do exist worldwide but all of them are not recommended.
Most of them are known for their quality in products, merchants, and higher commissions and few of them are even spams and fake too. There exist lots of them as we said before but choosing one of them is always recommended. They include Amazon, eBay, MaxBounty, Click bank, and much more. But this always depends on you what to choose and how to promote their products.
One thing should be kept in mind that is always is a long term relationship with the company you choose and one has to be aware that he or she should not violate any of their terms in any case else their all earnings will get forfeited. Let us have a quick look at three best of them along with their slight introduction, commission discussions, pros/cons, and much more. The three best of them include:
Amazon Affiliates Program
The first and foremost and the best of all programs is Amazon. Nobody can deny the fact that Amazon pays the best commissions. It is not only the world’s largest e-commerce platform but also provides people with Amazon Associates, which is for sure the largest and the biggest affiliate program in the world having more than a million affiliates.
It is no doubt the first option for affiliates as it sells each and everything under the sun irrespective of the niche, category, or anything. All products can be found easily at Amazon at extreme ease. Most of the digital products available at Amazon are low priced ones and it is safe to say that affiliates love having Amazon just because of its physical products and best customer reviews.
The ability of Amazon is to convert visitors into customers and all of them are returning ones for sure. It has been researched latest that Amazon’s average conversion rate is approx. 75% is having more than 90 million members worldwide.
This means that if you simply refer almost 100 members to Amazon, at least 14 of them will surely convert to buyers and maybe few of them become prime members as most of them are from the USA making conversion rates bit higher.

Findings Best Selling Products
It is never easy as you always do not know what to promote and what users exactly want. You need to study customer insights and need to check what actually is required by customers and in which locations.
You need to have a well-defined niche and you should promote products in that specific niche only. You have to keep a constant check that which products are performing best in which areas and how things will work.
Do a bit of keyword research as well as product research to get good results. This is a one-time effort but will let you earn massive commissions later.
There are certain tools i.e. AmaSuites, which you can use for this purpose but you do not have to rely on just one tool because each of them provides users with various results. Just have demographic check and perform the best keyword as well as product research for best results.
There are various bloggers and experts who are in the market and are earning higher revenues from their platforms just because customers, as well as search engines, have created utmost trust on them and purchases made from their platforms on a regular basis.
eBay Partner Network
eBay, on the other hand, is also the one with popular ratios in the market. Its partner network cannot be denied in any case and is proven best right after Amazon affiliates.
eBay is standing among world’s largest and the most famous eCommerce platforms. Unlike other eCommerce platforms, you can even sell your products using auctions. Other platforms only provide you with an opportunity to purchase but eBay also lets you purchase as well as sell being a customer.
This can be done using auctions available on the website. It comprises of a huge affiliate program commonly known as eBay partner network. The platform is very popular among bloggers, marketers, and advertisers.
The purpose of having the network is to sell a product and earn some percentage of commission. Commission varies as per each product’s price. Some are paid way higher and some are very low as per the demands of users.
eBay charges transaction fee against each product giving significant benefit to the sellers as their commission value significantly increases.
The most amazing fact about eBay is that they provide double commissions to new affiliates for the first three months just to motivate them and they make more sales in future increasing the company’s revenues. Like Amazon, eBay is also a trusted platform ever experienced by customers having positive and the best reviews all over the world especially the USA having good buying rates and reputation.
Just the purpose and methods are same here as we saw in Amazon i.e. choose higher paying products by doing some keyword as well as product research in designated areas and choose any of them. Later promote them using any media or channel online and earn handsome commissions on each sale respectively. Finding best-selling products on eBay is way easy as compared to Amazon.
You just need to visit eBay after creating your account and getting approval. You will see top products page in your front. Each product will be listed under the respective category and there will be numerous categories for you to choose. Just choose any of them and choose the product yourself.
Keep in mind that you need to have a proper eye on customer insights as we discussed before in Amazon so that you do not choose the wrong products, which may cost you a lot in the near future. Numerous bloggers and advertisers love using eBay as affiliate program form them as they believe that it is better than Amazon in commissions as well as user reviews.
But it is just an opinion, which may vary from person to person as per his niche and experience. Moreover, you can visit their website to know more about the program because they change commission values time by time and policies as well as terms of conditions for the affiliate programs.
They always not been keeping everything the same just because of numerous affiliate registrations and customer reviews. Let us have a quick look at the pros and cons of the said program.

Basically, you would do SEO and bring traffic to your blog and earn huge income through sales, which you may get through customers you target and bring at your channel.
This includes many ways i.e. sharing on media promotions, having chats, personal contacts, word of mouth, and much more.
Jet, as the name suggests, will let you fly in the air with higher notes if you make goods sales through them. The best affiliate program after eBay is Jet, which came in existence in 2015 but gained much importance, fame, and popularity in a short period. Jet gained lots of face and momentum just because customers loved it right because of its low prices and huge commissions.
The platform suits best for customers as well as advertisers because low prices it offers for customers and huge profits it gives to sellers. The major working method Jet follows it is of the algorithm, which runs for the customers to give them low prices as per their choices and saves their searches for future use.

Best and fast-growing eCommerce platform for last two years after eBay
No proven success stores like eBay
TOC change too often causing significant issues
Sometimes delivery of products get delayed due to new staff

Many more to discuss but these three are the topmost as per their reputation and results. It always depends that how you promote the products, then you earn commissions on sales.
If it is by your website, you need to check that site should be SEO optimized and proper research of keywords and customer insights has to be there and similarly, you need to bring related traffic to the site to convert visitors to customers.
The best thing in all these three platforms is that when a user clicks on your affiliate link, he can purchase anything and it is not mandatory at all for him to buy only that product he has clicked.
The other way is to have any social media account where you do boost or promotion or any online existence like YouTube channel for best marketing of your products.
Last but not the least; whatever way you decide, you need to have proper research about the network you would choose as per customer review, commissions, pay method’s, and many other factors.
