As you probably know, affiliate marketing is one of the best monetization strategies you can use on a blog or website. That is because the earning potential is quite high, and yet the work involved is relatively simple. All you have to do is to promote the products of your affiliate network, and whenever one of your referrals makes a purchase, you receive a commission. That is it. The company selling the product will take care of all the rest, which includes actually delivering the product, customer support and so on.
The only problem involved is that finding a good and reliable affiliate network is not always straightforward. You’ll find some networks that promise really high payouts and commissions, but whether or not you’ll get paid in the end is the question! I have heard all sorts of horror stories in the affiliate marketing world.
If you are getting started or already have some experience with affiliate marketing and want to test new and better networks, there is one that you should check out: eBay Partner Network.
Once you become a partner (their name for “affiliate”), you’ll receive tracking links that you can use to send your audience to the eBay website (or to their partner half.com). Then every time one of your referrals makes a purchase, you’ll earn a commission.
The big benefit of becoming an affiliate for eBay is the security that comes with it. eBay has been in business for 20 years, and their affiliate network has also been around since 2001. In other words, you can be sure that the tracking will be accurate, that your earnings will be paid in a timely fashion, and so on.
Still on the fence? They are currently running a campaign where new affiliates will get double commissions for the first 3 months. Check it out!
