Affiliates networks, like CSEs, are traffic drivers. Each network typically consists of thousands of affiliate websites and businesses ready and willing to market your website to their user base. Unlike CSEs though, you typically only pay the network once they deliver a sale (flat fee or % per sale). As such there is no upfront risk involved in affiliate marketing. Like CSEs, affiliate networks enable online retailers to quickly gain greater reach and market exposure. The entire process is managed by the affiliate network and is fully transparent through the ability to track the origin of each affiliate generated sale.

Clixgalore and Commission Monster top the list in terms of reputable affiliate programs with large affiliate bases. We recommend choosing one or the other and focusing your efforts on servicing those affiliates well. Much like with CSEs, it’s important to provide your affiliates with accurate and timely data and marketing collateral to help promote your business.
