#1 Affiliate Program: SBI


Ken Evoy's SBI is right up at Number 1, where it belongs.

I've earned regular four-figure monthly commissions (and even earned five-figure commissions) from Ken's affiliate program.

Ken is a truly amazing, multi-talented individual. Among his achievements, he has taught medicine, designed toys and games which earn millions of dollars in royalties, and invented a "virtually impossible to sell" niche software product - which he sold on the Net, earning $1,000 to $5,000 a day.

sbi120x120.gifSiteSell's fast-selling SBI has been my top money-earner nearly every month for 10 years.

It makes it easy for you to create your own website simply and easily, even if you have no technical knowledge at all. It analyzes which themes will be profitable.

Even better, it helps you optimize the pages for the main search engines and teaches you how to promote your site effectively. This remarkable tool also generates your Google and Yahoo! Sitemaps and automatically submits them when necessary so you don't have to!

SBI (formerly known as Site Build It) doesn't just teach you search engine optimization. It teaches you Internet marketing.

Most important of all, it teaches you how to be successful. No wonder SBI has tens of thousands of happy users.

Ken was the first to introduce the concept of PREselling to affiliates. This is the process of building relationships with your visitors and putting them into a warm, willing-to-buy mood so they are much more likely to make purchases based on your recommendations.


Ken Evoy explains how SBI changes lives


The SBI Action Guide and videos show you how to master this technique to drive your affiliate conversions through the roof. You won't just be building a website, you'll be building a long-term web business.

There's an incredible private SBI forum where SBI owners and users share tips and help each other. There's nothing else like it on the Internet.

I use SBI for several websites and highly recommend it.

SBI sites succeed. 61% of SBIers end up in the Top 3%. And only SBI! sites prove success. You'd think that others would if they could, wouldn't you?

See the proof.

As well as offering fantastic value for money, SiteSell President Ken Evoy works extremely hard to help his affiliates earn money. I've spent many hours chatting with him and learning about his products and plans. You can trust him to OVER-deliver on his promises.

The SiteSell program offers:

  • Outstanding value for money. You can feel comfortable promoting excellent products.

  • Lifetime commissions. You don't just earn a commission on the first sale. You earn a commission on every purchase by that customer - for life. Think about that. You sell once, earn indefinitely!

  • Two-tier commission structure. You earn revenue on the sales made by the people you refer to Ken.

  • Limited number of affiliates. Your efforts are protected.

  • A fair contract, which has non-terminatable/non-modifiable features. Ken looks after YOUR interests.

  • The BEST manual for affiliates - 224 pages packed with useful ideas - totally FREE. You receive excellent advice to get you started earning money.

  • A site that SELLS!
    Ken's site makes the sale for you.

All these features ensure this program is a long-term winner.

SiteSell's lifetime commissions are for active salespeople only. You stop receiving lifetime commissions if you stop generating new sales. This program may not suit you, but it has worked remarkably well for me for a decade.

Ken writes affiliate support newsletters which consistently offer the most detailed, helpful, step-by-step advice for affiliates I've seen.

#2: Niche Profit Classroom


I like promoting Niche Profit Classoom, for three reasons...

adamshortpic.jpgNPC provides a superb business-building education from a real been-there, done-that affiliate, Adam Short (right), who owns more than 300 profitable niche websites.

  • It has a superb sales pitch - profitable websites FAST. That has huge appeal.

  • Not only that, but you get full access - you get to try everything - for one dollar.

  • With a sales pitch as strong as that, it's not surprising that Niche Profit Classroom has been high on my list of earners for years.

NPC provides step-by-step video training that shows you how to create money-making websites. You get to use NPC's software tools for market research, keyword research and to build your websites.

They make it as easy as possible for you. You can use NPC's own Niche Profit Press website builder to build your website fast.

"Believe it or not, it's actually possible to have a website up and making money not in months ... but in mere days," says Adam.

You get to watch over his shoulder as he builds a website, attracts traffic, and makes sales, all in DAYS.

As you delve into NPC, you discover that there are HUNDREDS of videos to help you as you gradually expand your knowledge of various aspects of building and promoting websites and making sales.

As a tempting bonus, each month you receive two ready-made businesses, niche packages with the research done for you. You can customize them, and plug them into the Niche Profit Press website builder to have websites built in minutes.

You also get hand-holding coaching where any questions are answered and free website reviews.

Another good thing about NPC is the weekly webinars. You can rest assured Adam HAS to stay on top of his game as he answers any questions tossed at him in those webinars.

Adam is so confident you'll love NPC that he's prepared to give you full, unrestricted access for just $1.

You can read Reena's long review of NPC here, or simply dive in now and try NPC for A mere $1. Where else can you learn so much for a dollar? Of course, once you're in and see the value, you won't want to leave.


#3: NEW
A Gem Among The Dross - Social Media Marketing


Here's a new course I'm really enjoying promoting because it's so GOOD. It's the best course I've seen on promoting your blog or website using social media. Author Lynn Terry has been working online for 16 years. She's the real deal when it comes to promoting a site using social media - efficiently.

When it comes to using social media effectively, there are all sorts of subtle little things that are vitally important - things that aren't obvious when you try to figure out how a successful marketer is doing it.

Lynn shows you - with screenshots - exactly how to do it in as little as 15 to 30 minutes a day.

No sneaky stuff. No hype. Just good, solid, reliable tips and instructions, based on her own very successful experience.

Get it here: Social Media Marketing.

Lynn pays 50% commissions, paid instantly (that's nice!) through JVZoo.

 

# 4: Ready made niche content packages


If you're building a string of websites, writing a blog or distributing articles to article libraries, you need a lot of articles. It's time-consuming and tedious trying to research and write all those articles yourself.

You can hire writers at places such as elance and RentaCoder, but if you've tried that, you'll know it can be done but it's not as easy as it sounds. So you need a workable shortcut.

Stefan Everaet has come up with a good shortcut for you. He's creating ready made niche content packages. He makes at least three new packages available each month.

Niches covered include financial, gardening, pets, health, sports, travel and a whole lot more. Stefan even encourages you to let him know which topics you prefer and he'll do his best to provide content on those niches.

Each package includes about well written articles and beautiful graphics. I'm a subscriber, so I've had a good look at the quality of the content. I was pleasantly surprised how well written the articles are.

You'll want to tweak and optimize the articles to help search engines find them. This is a good thing. It means your articles will be unique. You can also add your own tone and personality.

UPDATE: Stefan's service is now hugely improved. You can choose between several monthly subscription levels. For example, if you're interested only in travel, you can use your credits to get only on travel-related content.

ROSALIND GARDNER
Super Affiliate Handbook

cover-sah-179.jpgWhat does it take to be a super affiliate?

You'll find the answer to that question and hundreds more in Rosalind Gardner's Super Affiliate Handbook: How I Made $436,797 In One Year Selling Other People's Stuff.

Rosalind's success as a genuine super affiliate and the success of her Handbook is all in the details. She writes in a clear and concise style and presents the facts in a down-to-earth, no-hype manner that enables an absolute beginner or a seasoned veteran of affiliate marketing to learn what it takes to become a super affiliate.

She knows her stuff because she's been there herself.

This is a very comprehensive manual, covering a LOT of detail. It is regularly updated. She teaches you a multitude of marketing methods including PPC, email and list building. She also makes good use of blogs. The Super Affiliate Handbook is as much about what NOT to do as it is about what to become a super super affiliate.

Her focus is on choosing affiliate programs carefully, building simple but professional sites, writing compelling text and earning trust.

Rosalind makes it very clear that you have to get the details right first time, every time - that's how she generates more than $1,000 a day in affiliate income.

She describes her systems and how she manages to achieve conversion rates of between 2.5% and 6% (and higher!), when the average affiliate often considers 1% a successful conversion rate acceptable.

Whether you are just starting out in Internet marketing or have been around for a while but are still trying to find the magic formula that is going to drive more traffic and more sales conversions, don't do another thing until you've read the Super Affiliate Handbook.

If you wanted just one book on affiliate marketing, it would be very hard to find a better choice than Rosalind's book. I strongly recommend it.


MARLON SANDERS
The King of Step by Step Internet Marketing

Marlon Sanders is a zany, highly innovative marketer with a crazy sense of humor. If you ever get a chance to hear him speak, grab it.

Marlon's affiliate program has been very successful for many affiliates, including me.

You may know about Marlon's classic Amazing Formula That Sells Products Like Crazy - it's the only Internet marketing manual which has more than 100 pages of testimonials.

If you want to sell lots of products, this the book you must get.

Marlon knows exactly which buttons to push to make people buy. He really DOES know how to make products fast and sell them like crazy.

In recent years he has launched a bunch of new products and new tools which make things easy for affiliates and other Internet marketers, including highly innovative stuff I haven't seen anywhere else.

An excellent example is his Traffic Dashboard which is beautifully simple to use. It has rows of icons you can select to learn how to get traffic, broken down into simple, easy to conquer steps. Brilliant!


CHRIS REMPEL
Confessions of a Lazy Super-Affiliate

Chris Rempel's ebook, Confessions of a Lazy Super-Affiliate, is NOT for affiliate beginners. It's aimed at intermediate-level marketers and website owners.

In a cool, logical style, Chris describes how to build a super affiliate business in which all the pieces join together, so that each action you takes applies leverage and multiplies your sales and commissions.

He doesn't tell you how to use AdSense. Do things his way, and you can make far more from affiliate commissions. He doesn't discuss paid advertising. He prefers to attract free traffic from search engines.

Don't "follow your passion", he says. Identify markets that have desperate buyers, people that are ready to buy. He tells you how to identify and target streams of such people, who are desperate for a solution to their problem. They make excellent customers.

He provides a multi-step income plan.

The first section describes how to build a 20-page mini-site that is targeted at visitors who are on the verge of buying. That's how you make the real money, he says.

I like this "lazy" man's style. Instead of doing the hard work of convincing someone to buy something, he says you should simply be standing in front of the right crowd and and saying, "Oh - you're looking for XYZ? Yeah, I would be, too. It's over here..."

Ka-ching!

Your mini-site does NOT merely contain rewritten PLR articles or any old articles on your chosen topic. Remember, you don't just want to attract visitors - you want to attract BUYERS. So you have to follow a carefully considered, logical structure designed to achieve affiliate sales. He tells you how he does it.

This book is NOT about doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It's about building a BUSINESS in which all the pieces belong.

He takes you through a structured process he's using - all the way from research and testing, from one little 20-page mini-site, to multiple mini-sites, to creating related freeware (no, he's NOT a programmer), to viral software marketing, to creating your own little "feeder" products, to creating a huge Mother Site, to creating more feeder products, so that eventually you capture and dominate your market and you own rock solid assets.

Even if you get only as far as Step 1 and Step 2, this book could change your affiliate marketing forever - especially the sections on identifying and attracting desperate buyers.

"Confessions" is very moderately priced. It's excellent value.

THE LATE COREY RUDL
The Step-by-Step Guide to Selling Online

The Corey Rudl's home-study Internet marketing course is a proven moneymaker that has spent years on my Top 10 list.

This #1 best-selling course sells for $197 - and you get a generous $65 commission for every sale you refer - plus another $20 commission for every sale that your sub-affiliates refer.

The course, now called "The Step-by-Step Guide to Selling Online", is a breeze to promote because Corey's company gives you real meat to work with. It used to consist of 2 binders and 2 resource CDs containing "Insider's Secrets" - a total of more than 1,000 pages of the exact information you need to start, promote, and grow a highly successful, extremely profitable Internet business. It is now totally online, so that it's easy for the company Corey founded to keep it constantly updated with the latest techniques as the Internet changes.

It was from Corey's company that I learned many of my success secrets.

Tips and techniques I learned from Corey's course and his free newsletter have helped me enormously, playing a major role in turning AssociatePrograms.com from a hobby into a rapidly growing, full-time Internet business which now employs people in three countries. (Thanks, Corey!)

And that's why I highly recommend it... both as a tool for learning how to increase your affiliate sales... and as an affiliate product you can promote to earn sizeable commission checks!

Corey died in a car crash in June 2005 but his well managed company has continued to go from strength to strength, producing useful new products under the leadership of Derek Gehl.

Im wondering what makes a "internet Guru"?
You have to not tell the truth alot, leave out some critical information that us "newbies" need, but are only willing to sell us something else that makes absolutly no sence whatsoever!
Isnt there a place where a person could go to make some money to put back into their internet buisness for not alot of cost? or someone who could instruct someone like me who only wants to make a good living because i cant make a living on a regular job..(job injury in january)?
Ive tryed clickbank, which has a good reputation for affiliates, but they keep changing the rules, or adding different ones.
So, basically if you dont have alot of money to start with, it seems to me your screwed?

I sell and use SBI and have made good money from it by simply telling the truth. My wife and I did something wierd and it paid off. We sold EVERYTHING we had before we hit 40, bought a big class A motorhome and traveled all over the country for 5 years on the money we made from building these little websites and promoting SBI as well. Just Google "MarketingMakesMoney" all one word with the quotes and it has links to the Motor Home site that I use to PROVE we really did it. I think this site of Allan's is among the most valuable.

SBI is junk. It has all the makings for another guy out to get your money.

Do what I did to make a lot of money online...figure it our yourself and do the research. You will learn a lot more if the info you find is not handed to you.

These sites are for lazy people looking to get rich quick....dummies!

[Congratulations on making a lot of money online. It's always pleasing to hear of success stories.

However, you don't appear to know all that much about SBI. Ken Evoy does not claim that his system is designed to help people get rich quick. There are a lot of people who have made a lot of money through their SBI sites but I doubt if any of them would claim that it was a quick process.

I'm sure they'd also take issue with your statement about info being handed to them. SBI is a suite of tools that helps to make building effective websites easier. It doesn't replace the hard work that you have to do yourself if you want to succeed.

Hi,

You rate "The Insiders Secrets to Marketing..." as your #4 affiliate program. I purchased that program after weeks of doing research, and just received it a few days ago. While waiting for that program, I came across Site Build It and just KNOW that this is exactly what I've been looking for. I understand exactly what Site Build It will do for me - assist in building my website while I create TONS of content; assist with Search Engine Optimization; assist with traffic by helping me with keywords, hosting my site, domain name registration,etc. basically "building and helping maintain" my website. Now, however, I am becoming confused with the difference between Site Build It and Insiders Secrets ?? I know Insiders Secrets doesn't help BUILD your website or host your website,etc... but they DO assist you in coming up with a niche market and with Search Engine Optimization. Doesn't Site Build It do that, too?? Have I just wasted my money on Insiders Secrets now that I KNOW I will be investing in Site Build It?? Can I benefit from BOTH? I am so extremely motivated about starting an On-line Business, and being a newbie, I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right. I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Linda

[They're both top-notch products, produced by very experienced businesses, so you haven't wasted your money. There are thousands of different ways to make money on the Internet, and as many different interpretations. People succeed with both products. People learn valuable things from both products. Study the product you've bought very carefully before deciding whether you want to buy another, but beware of paralysis by analysis. You could buy dozens of products and still find new ones that would add usefully to your knowledge. Some people spend years studying this stuff without taking action. Allan.]

[Yes, SBI will work with Vista. It's a web-based system so it will work with Macs or PCs. Re writing good content, here's an article I wrote which may help: Create compelling content that leads to SALES

Thanks

[Unfortunately, you can join only companies which allow affiliates from Nigeria. I don't know of anyone who has prepared such a list, but some affiliate programs accept affiliates from all countries. PayPal has many millions of satisfied customers and a very small minority of dissatisfied customers. I've always found PayPal to be reliable. You can join as many programs as you like, but it makes sense to do careful research and choose the best products with the most reliable companies. Allan.]

Some good recommendations there - Marlon Sanders offers long term tracking and his emails are often some of the most useful out there - which keeps people reading them. Chris Remple's guides are the main reason I make money online which makes the an easy and legit sale plus Jimmy D Brown turns out quality products repeatedly. Great products you don't have to feel guilty about promoting.

SBI also gives training on writing good content. Learn this skill and be committed to putting up new content each month, and your SBI site will do very well.
Said this on October 30, 2009 At 12:42 am
Allan you can be proud of this site. It's the best I've found in a very long while after much searching. It has a genuine feel to it unlike so many others.

For quick background, I started a financial site in 2002. It was a hobby for retirement. It carried no advertising. Nothing against advertising but the return appeared likely small and not worth the hassle. The audience was also small but that was fine. No SEO, zip. We had a vBulletin forum (still do) with about 800 members but closed it because spammers became a nuisance.

But attitudes change. I've now remade the site and want to promote it via adwords and possibly adsense. Objective is to promote our newsletter. As promotion costs money, and returns are uncertain, thought I might add some affiliate programs into the sales mix and install adsense too. Your site has opened the window on this field.... and for that a sincere thank you.

It's amazing how much drivel has been written about internet marketing. Site after site telling people how to get rich quick. Interestingly, much of this nonsense is written by people who can't even spell. Others most certainly can spell - they are very slick - but their smooth claims of fast fortune rarely ring true. Bottom line - I suspect many people have lost a bundle with their internet endeavors.

Reading this section brought back memories. I noticed much conversation about SBI. FWIW I checked out this program about a year or more ago. Yes, I thought it was probably hyped but not outrageously so. On balance it appeared to make sense for many people short on computer skills. As someone else wrote here, best to keep things simple and concentrate on what you do best. If long on writing skills, focus on doing that and rely on something like SBI to handle the rest.

Anyway, thanks again for this site. I see you've been at it since 1999. Perhaps you've already done it but if not, why not write a book? Have a hunch it would tower over most others on the market.

[Thank you! I really appreciate your comments. A book? Well, you never know. However, I'm delegating more and working a lot less these days, leaving Jay, Reena, Sally and the rest of the team to do the hard lifting. After all, the dream of affiliate marketing is to improve your lifestyle, not work more! Allan.]

SBI works full stop!

My SBI site has been live for 3 years and now provides a modest but full time income. I have big plans for building new areas of my site and increasing my earnings substantially.

There are only 2 things you really need to do to make a success with SBI.

1. Build a site about a subject you have some knowledge and passion.

2. Follow the Action Guide, read and then do everything it says. Don't half read and do whatever the hell you want and then expect good results.

The forums are awesome and worth the three hundred dollars on their own. To be honest you could spend thousands of dollars on training and support. It still would not come close to what you get from the SBI forums.

So to summerize follow the Action Guide completely and do the work. That is really work (lots of work) and use the forums wisely. Don't spend half you life in them, after all your building a real business.

I now have 2 SBI sites up and running and am researching my third site concept.
Said this on September 27, 2010 At 01:14 pm
I've only signed up to SBI! in the last 2 months as a user of the product, and I've made 2 Affiliate sales, with more interested people in the pipline. I believe it has to do with what you are passionate about.
Said this on October 15, 2010 At 11:30 pm
Wow!

I took time out of my busy schedule to read so much garbage...

But I learned something!

I just learned from Allan Gardyne just how much patience, wisdom and class it takes to be a legitimate leader in the internet marketing world.

Do people even READ?

I first heard about Allan Gardyne years ago when I was heavily researching online marketing solutions. His case study on the SBI case studies page was one of the reasons why I ended up purchasing the product.

In the 3 or 4 years since I first purchased SBI, I have built 3 websites with that platform. About the only thing that compares to its website-building capabilities out there is XSitePro...

But they are completely different animals. I call Site Build It An Internet Business Platform because it includes:

* Extremely Valuable Membership Community (The forums - worth the cost of SBI just by itself...in my opinion, as long as it doesn't become a substitute for working on your site).

* Website Building and Creation Tools (Including the option to upload your own HTML)

* Heavily Subsidized Keyword Research Tools (Powered By WordTracker)

* SEARCH IT! Market/Competitive Intelligence Tool (On Steroids)

* Highly-Extensible (You can even add a WordPress blog and many other types of tools to your SBI-site as long as you pay for it to be separately hosted).

* A Robust Internet marketing, Marketing and Entrepreneurial Education That Just Won't Quit!

* A Business-Building Philosophy That Resonates With The Highest Wisdom - Work for the BIG PICTURE, with a steady replicable and predictable (read: Systematic) process that WILL get you results if you S-L-O-W D-O-W-N and do what it takes to build the foundation of a great business.

THE DOWN SIDE:

SBI only tries to solve the following problems in particular:

* Analysis paralysis, monkey mind and lack of strategic focus.

* The Technology Suite Required To Build A Robust Internet Platform

* Robust Education In Internet marketing/Online business
F-U-N-D-A-M-E-N-T-A-L-S

With something so complex (and multi-disciplinary) as building a business, you will lose money and momentum, or waste time and effort if you do not understand the fundamentals of what you're involved with.

You will also be "CANNON FODDER" for the hordes of internet gurus and flim flam artists just waiting to take you from the "rat race" to the "spin cycle" (trust me...the SPIN CYCLE is worse)!

SBI IS NOT FOR YOU IF:

1. You cannot or WILL NOT slow down and read the Action Guide!
2. You are unwilling to ever go back and REVIEW the Action Guide!
3. Desperately need to earn $1,000, or $10,000 dollars next week!
4. Cannot write, or delegate writing, or dictate and have your writing transcribed, or put in any effort.
5. Cannot (or will not) think creatively or research your monetization options after you have built a website that generates oodles of traffic (because NOTHING can help you if you can't use what you have).
6. Have the patience and concentration level of a 2 year old (without the cuteness)!


SOME WEAKNESSES OF SBI
1. It has quite a limited auto-responder sequence with Form Build it! (up to 7 msg sequence only), but there are very, very, simple work arounds to that.

a. Use the e-zine feature and do just fine!
b. Daisy chain the form-build it forms in a sequence.
c. For as little as $20 dollars a month, sign up for Aweber, GetResponse, iContact or any good autoresponder.

d. Or Sign up for mailchimp's (Free up to 500 subscribers) and make

2. MONETIZATION
Some SBI customers seem to have a challenge when it comes time to monetize, with not having the confidence, or showing the creativity required to come up with monetization options (other than the most obvious - On-site Adsense ads and affiliate links).

I think this may be partly due to the fact that SBI does so much for them on the Infrastructure-building stages of the business, that some get somewhat disabled (spoiled?) when it comes to monetization where SBi simply cannot be expected to tell you what you should do.

CONCLUSION - EVERGREEN STRATEGIES
I wrote all this because of how annoying this comment stream became to me. If you are just starting out on the internet, and you're looking...my advice is for you to select internet teachers who give you the best detailed information on EVERGREEN STRATEGIES!!!

Forget about stuff that promises to make you $10,000 dollars in 10 days. A few may, 99 percent won't and all will require your money, and work.

Google announced (as early as 2008) that it had indexed over 1 TRILLION web pages! If you go after purchasing the "strategy of the day" courses, you are as likely to be purchasing something that no longer works as doing anything else!

I'll finish this by paraphrasing Jimmy D. Brown (another excellent IM teacher) who once said that there are only 2 things you need to make money online:

AN OFFER and A BUYER.

If you're curious about websites that I have built for myself, or some clients, I'm not able to divulge any but the following below:

MarriageInspiration.com (1st page of Google for its primary keyword AND MANY others).
IdeaAgeConsulting.com (My corporate website)
HouseflippingOnline.com (created to encourage budding real estate investors).
And others...

I'm a real person. I have both SBI websites and Non-SBI websites. I am also an affiliate of theirs. Both my coaching and consulting clients who have either built SBI websites or have had us build them, are still grateful.

Get busy, do real research, ask a lot of questions, think critically and get to work.

THANK YOU ALLAN for all that you do.

From Ric Brothers:

I simply cannot see how you can rate Site Buildit! as the No1 affiliate program.

Like the one of the guys above said . it's hard to promote. I also question Evoy's integrity when it comes to paying his affiliates.

I send over 1,000 visitors to his site, and didn't get one penny!

I even had some return visitors, but still never made any money. And I still feel I was cheated out of my commission.

Don't bother to return my email; I know you will just defend him, right or wrong, because you don't kill the goose that lays the golden egg!

Thanks anyway for getting my 2 cents worth.

Hi Ric, It's quite simple... SBI is No.1 on my list because I earn more from it than other affiliate program.

Thanks for this list of successful and profitable affiliate product programs. And a plr product on the list too - great! I am always on the lookout for lists such as these, especially if they are plr products.

Not only will this list offer a way to try out successful programs right off the gate, I'll have a much better chance of profiting from them since they are already sellling and proven money makers. I'll just have to get the traffic and convert them into buyers.

Thanks Allan G and take care!

I am in the first month of SBI now, and I must say that SBI is the most complete website-builder package on the Net. It has a very thorough guides and details about how to build not just a website, but a website that WORKS! Joining SBI will cut several years of your learning curve. Guaranteed!

One of the features of an Affiliate Program is how they pay you.

Allan is there a list of Affiliate Programs that pay by Paypal? Cashing cheques in US dollars is expensive in the UK?

Thanks

Hi Alex, In our affiliate directory, we tell you how each affiliate program pays, but we don't have a list of ones that pay by PayPal. In my experience, most do offer than option these days.

I understand that it's expensive to cash cheques (or checks as the Americans call them) in the UK. It is in Australia, too. I've received the occasional cheque that was worth less than the cost of processing it, and the bank has kindly waived the processing fee. 

However, please don't place too much importance on that. Just look at it as a normal cost of doing business. I would much rather promote a fantastic product that pays by cheque/check than a mediocre product that pays via PayPal. I'm sure you would, too.

If you choose companies and products you're enthusiastic about it's much easier to know what to write when you promote them. 

Make it a top priority to earn enough so that the cost of doing your banking doesn't matter.

You'll most likely find that 80 of your income comes from 20% of the companies you do business with - maybe only 5% of them. Put your efforts into improving sales of those top 5% and you won't have to worry about the cost of the rest.

Unlike most companies that only use affiliate to supplement their revenues, Site Sell is 100% affiliate run. The company truly relies on their affiliates, and therefore they invest a lot of money into giving their affiliates every possible advantage. Rather than spending millions on advertising, they spend it on helping their affiliate earn more money.

The SBI Affiliate Program offers the highest commissions amongst competing programs, and they pay residual commissions. And it gets even better because you also receive team commissions, so you can leverage and grow your income even larger.

These are some great picks of programs but i'm going to check out NPC

Allan, I had been stumbling around, picking up stuff on my own when I happened to find SBI. I love the program, mainly because I'm 62, a technophobe to the max, and wasn't up on any of the new tech stuff when I began. It has taught me more in 4 weeks than I was able to learn on my own in 5 years. I am writing content for my new website as a matter of fact, and that is how I stumbled (I do that a lot) on your site. I am very happy to have found you. I see it, too, has a great many very useful resources. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?? Ha-Ha!

Hi CE, Old? You've got to be kidding! 62 isn't old. My in-laws are 94 and 95. One has a laptop and the other an iPad. I'd be prepared to call THEM old. :)
