  1. I book marked your post for future reference. I am already a member of Amazon a Awin. I haven’t checked out the other 2 programs you discuss. I am worried about by affiliate with Amazon because I haven’t met their quota and I am still working on getting traffic to my site and I haven’t found a program I am interested in with Awin. 

    1. Hi Lee. I am glad you bookmarked my post for future reference.  There are lots of Affiliate Networks to choose from.  I would try some new ones and do a search within the Affiliate Programs.  Best wishes in your Online Adventure!!  Cheers

  2. Thank you so much for this article!  You have definitely pointed me in directions I had not thought of.

    I was unaware of the different commissions you can receive.  I’m used to Amazon’s structure but this article really opened my eyes to much more lucrative markets out there.  I believe I can improve my own site with your suggestions.  Thank you!

    One question I have is:  Can I mix and match different affiliate programs on a page?  Say my page is on cat care and points to products on Amazon already.  Can I also use another affiliate program for a specific item that someone else sells that I really like?

    I’ve bookmarked your page as I can’t wait to see what you post next!

    1. Hi  I am so glad you enjoyed the article an I am glad I could help you with some tips.   Some of the commissions are great…there are so many to choose from.
