Affiliate Marketing Programs Worth Having A Look At

Affiliate Marketing

What is Affiliate Marketing?

In short: Affiliate Marketing is when you get a commission for advertising, promoting, and selling other people’s products and services on your website, social media sites, email newsletters, etc.

This is an excellent way to make extra money (or a full-time income) with your blog and social media sites and best of all it is something that you can do from just about anywhere in the world. I have read of bloggers that make more than $50,000 per month with Affiliate Marketing alone.

These are some of my favourite Affiliate Marketing Programs, that I can use here in South Africa:
