This is obviously a crucial factor to consider. You might come up with an idea for a niche you know a lot about, but are there affiliate programs for the niche? No affiliate program = no sales. Time to look for a different niche.

Hi Chris, I live abroad in Asia and am wondering if I can still implement your course and have a chance at success. How would you find content to review products without owning the products yourself.. Is that possible?
Good point about reviewing online courses before you promote them to protect your reputation. However, I would like to point out that the level of attention the course creator gives you (the endorser) and what they give to a random customer might be very different. There are so called marketing gurus out there who are extremely skilled at making false promises and not delivering on them. Once they have the endorsement of a few reputed marketers and some ‘lucky’ customers, they can easily get away with ripping other people off with hyped up money making guarantees. I have had a personal experience with this as a customer, but lets not mention names! The point is, when we are promoting someone, we need to do an in-depth due diligence. Only going through their course is not enough. It would be great if there was some kind of a course review site -something like tripadvisor. This is something that the industry really needs – something to make accountable. A lot of people are losing faith in these online courses. I am staying away from promoting people unless I am very certain of their integrity.
PID (publisher website ID) is used to identify the publisher’s website. A CJ publisher may have multiple PIDs under one single CJ account (e.g. if you maintain multiple websites, you will have multiple PIDs).
Use subtitles or text in the video to enhance the message if it isn’t clear by visuals alone (remember, audio won’t play unless the user scrolls over the ad). Note how Peloton Cycle calls out “Live and on Demand” and “Silent Belt Drive” to communicate what can’t be shown in the video alone.
3. In your “Hi, I’m Amy” section on the right. How did you set up those internal hyperlinks. I used a text widgin to put insert my about section but I can not add any hyperlinks. Also how did you add your picture in that same section.
If you’re just starting out, $100 a month could seem pretty good, but it takes a lot of work to get up t0 1k visitors a day – and if you get that many, you’re much better off monetizing via affiliate ads or ads for your own product.
Many affiliate programs will often run promotions with good discounts or giveaways that might be attractive to your audience. For example, if you’re an Amazon Associate and the site have a big Holiday Sale, it would be the perfect opportunity for you to promote discounts to your website visitors. This is a great way to promote your offers while also providing good value to your audience.
