Commission Junction – A Solid Affiliate Site

After a little research, I've determined that Commission Junction (a site that I mentioned in one of my previous posts) is one of the best sites to sign up for if you're into affiliate marketing, and want to sell real, tangible products. They have a listing of a ton of companies whose products you can promote, ranging from clothing to ringtones to electronics, and everything in between. And these are well know companies, like Old Navy, NewEgg, and Apple. The interface of the website isn't the easiest to use, but it gets the job done. It's easy to find good banners and links for your site. You can see a couple that I added in the sponsored section on the right hand side of my blog.

You first need to submit your website, which they check for quality. If it's accepted, then you can apply to individual merchants (like Apple), and if they accept you, you can add links to their products on your site, and get paid when people purchase them through your link. It's easier than I probably made it sound.

The only thing that I don't like is that they don't pay through PayPal. They do offer direct deposit into your checking account, though, in addition to check. They pay monthly.

If you want to try your hand at affiliate marketing, and are looking for some good, reputable products to promote, then give Commission Junction a look.
