LinkShare_180x150

If you’re looking to join a bunch of affiliate programs, you’re probably going to want to join the Linkshare Affiliate Network. Why? They have a lot of popular stores in their network, and there’s a good chance you’ll want to promote something from at least one of them.

Plus, they have a great reporting system, as well as make it easy for you to get your affiliate links.

Here are just a few of the many stores that you can apply to become an affiliate of once you are accepted into the Linkshare Affiliate Network. (Note: Sometimes programs change networks. As of this posting, these are currently all a part of the Linkshare Affiliate Network):

  • Macy’s Affiliate Program
  • Barnes & Noble Affiliate Program
  • 1-800-Flowers Affiliate Program
  • Drugstore.com Affiliate Program
  • Buy.com Affiliate Program
  • Hotwire Affiliate Program
  • Office Depot Affiliate Program
  • Orbitz Affiliate Program
  • Lego Affiliate Program
  • Nordstrom Affiliate Program

Pros:

  • Easy to find banners and text links.
  • Easy to create a link to any page on site for many programs.
  • Easy to see how much money you made, and from what program.
  • Easy to apply to new affiliate programs.
  • Since you apply to a company for each website you have, there is less of a chance of getting denied because you have some sites they don’t like, or aren’t something they want their store promoted on.
  • In the reports, you can see exactly what items were purchased, making it helpful for future promotions.
  • Lots of data feeds, and different web services you can use, included for free.
  • They pay fast.
  • They have a minimum payment of only $1, so you will always get the commissions owed to you!

Cons:

  • You have to apply for affiliate programs for each website you have. So if you have 10 websites, you might have to apply for the same program 10 times. You can’t just get accepted and use the same links on all sites.

As you can tell, I really like the Linkshare Affiliate Network…and I do have only the one issue with them, as I have a lot of websites and it is an extra step having to sign up for affiliate programs each time I create a new site. Other then that though, I’m very happy with them, and promote many different affiliate products on their network.

Also, just in case you didn’t know, it’s free to join affiliate networks and affiliate programs, so you don’t have to worry about anything like that. They pay you…not the other way around!
