Affiliate marketing is also called "performance marketing", in reference to how sales employees are typically being compensated. Such employees are typically paid a commission for each sale they close, and sometimes are paid performance incentives for exceeding objectives.[25] Affiliates are not employed by the advertiser whose products or services they promote, but the compensation models applied to affiliate marketing are very similar to the ones used for people in the advertisers' internal sales department.
As search engines have become more prominent, some affiliate marketers have shifted from sending e-mail spam to creating automatically generated web pages that often contain product data feeds provided by merchants. The goal of such web pages is to manipulate the relevancy or prominence of resources indexed by a search engine, also known as spamdexing. Each page can be targeted to a different niche market through the use of specific keywords, with the result being a skewed form of search engine optimization.
The downside is that Shopify is only appealing for people who have physical or digital products to sell and have a need to set up a Shopify store, including site hosting, payment processing, and all the other services offered by Shopify. This can significantly narrow the appeal for this affiliate program. But if you can distinguish yourself by educating people on how to use Shopify, how it can benefit their business, and/or make them money, you could potentially big money via the affiliate program. Add in the 2 x monthly fee commission rate, and landing just a few sales of their mid-tier and top-tier products can result in significant earnings.

Le salaire de Macron est certes haut, mais il porte une grosse responsabilité. Je pense que c’est l’une des raisons pour un salaire aussi élevé. Quant à Elise Lucet, elle fait un chouette travail et surtout, ses émissions génèrent des centaines de milliers d’audience, et donc de publicité, donc c’est une juste rétribution par rapport à l’argent qu’elle permet de générer à son employeur (comme le salaire de Ronaldo ne me choque pas tant que ça, au final si il gagne un million par mois, il permet à son club d’en générer deux).
Hi, Jamie! Very good list. I needed something like this for 2018 so that I know what to target in the future blogs I create. As for now, I’m comfortable using SiteGround affiliate network and it’s pretty good actually. Their hosting service is pretty much the best considered its price. I’ve tried others but SiteGround stands out. I’ll also try new affiliate networks, something from the list you have just provided. I think Amazon is too saturated at the moment, and I need a better network. 2018 will be interesting indeed.
One big difference between SkimLinks and VigLinks, however, is that once you’re approved by the company, you can choose to work with any merchant or program on its platform. SkimLinks has also published a white paper discussing its partnership with Buzzfeed, giving SkimLinks a lot of credibility. SkimLinks also has a higher tier of vetted merchants called “Preferred Partner” and “VIP” that both pay higher commissions than standard merchants.
It’s free to join the SellHealth affiliate program, though you do have to apply and be accepted before you can start promoting their products.  Once you’re accepted, you’ll have access to a number of tools, graphics, banners and more that you can use to promote SellHealth products.  The sales are actually made at company-owned Websites, which look professional and handle all of the selling. Commissions vary, but the base rate is 30% of all sales and upsells, and SellHealth says you can earn up to $350 per sale.
In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.
@Sylvain : Personnellement, j’ai un peu d’expérience avec Commission Junction et Clickbank (des réseaux américains) et on ne m’a jamais refusé parce que mon site internet était francophone. Si tu tiens à vendre des produits d’entreprises francophones, tu peux visiter les plateformes française (1TPE, Effiliation, NetAffiliation, Public-Idées) de la liste ci-dessus. Sur quelques plateformes anglophones, c’est aussi possible de trouver des programmes/produits francophones.
Effiliation.com est un réseau d’affiliation parisien lancé en 1999. Comme beaucoup de réseaux, Effiliation offre un service de créations de bannières dynamiques (image ou Flash) et de pages d’atterrissage (landing pages). Voici quelques-unes de leurs statistiques: 40 millions de clics par mois, 45000 sites internet d’affiliés, 1 milliard d’affichages par mois.
Aujourd’hui, les biens les plus vendus à l’aide des plateformes d’affiliations sont les produits électroniques (logiciels, livrels, etc) et les livres, mais je crois que dans le futur, nous verrons de plus en plus de publicités pour des produits physiques (exemple: un vélo, un ordinateur, des outils, etc). Je dirais même que les lecteurs d’un blogue sur la course à pied auraient un avantage à être exposé à des pubs de chaussures et de vêtements sport, plutôt qu’à une annonce du ebook : “Comment faire de l’argent sur internet”.
