What are you interested in? What is your focus or niche?

There are many affiliate programs out there. For example, Amazon has a big one.

I don't know about a niche. I do like music, animals and books. I do surveys, but it'll be a matter of time before I can request a check. I've been medical and finance clerks. I really don't like phones.

Perhaps you could create a blog or site and write about those hobbies or experiences. If you get some traffic to the blog or site, you could then monetize it with something related to that topic.

For example, if you write about books and music, Amazon might be a good match as they sell books and music and you could earn a sales commission.

I'll get specific, Janny.

By legit, you mean, "Will the suckers pay me?"

Which is a great thing to ask.

You have 2 ways of going about this.

1. Look for an affiliate program ran by the company who own the products you wish to promote.

2. Look for one that represents these companies by feeding them with affiliates.

As far as #1 goes: decide on your niche, visit the most-respected site in that niche, and look around the website footer for an affiliate program link. Voila.

As far as #2 goes: search Google for the most respected affiliate programs. (I don't want to name drop really in case we're not allowed). I will say though, Click Bank and Commission Junction would be great places to start.

Amazon is one of the easiest affiliate companies to work with. They sell a huge range of products at a variety of price points. And customers trust Amazon so it's an easier sale than many other affiliate companies.

Amazon is certainly one of them. Clickbank has an affiliate program as well. I would say the best thing is to do your research.

Commission Junction, Shareasale and Linkshare are also some good ones as well.

I learned the most from Ken Evoy's Affiliate Masters Course back in the late 90s. It's still one of the BEST FREE resources on learning about Affiliate Marketing in my book. Although the course has changed over time, the solid basics are still there.
Grab your free copy

but basically, there are great affiliate programs out there for everything from Amazon, Walmart and every other big box store to phones and electronic products to books and software to big ticket items like cars. SO that is why you need to decide what you are interested in because most of your time will be spent promoting your links and that's much easier if you can think of A LOT of ways to talk about what you are selling and keep the topic interesting.
