I have had some decent success with a handful of advertising and affiliate programs. Here are five programs from which I have made at least a $1,000.
Websponsors – One of the first affiliate networks that I had some good luck with. For a while, I was making a ton of money off their free poetry offer that paid out at $1.00 per lead. Lately, I have had some success with their free student pack offer that pays out $.60/lead.
AdSense â€“ I have done well with AdSense since its inception. I would like to do some more testing to optimize AdSense on my sites, and I will chronicle the results of the testing on this blog.
Adteractive â€“ Adteractive is another good affiliate network. I have had some success running their FastWeb scholarship and JackPot offers on a few sites that I helped with finding good affiliate offers.
EmarketMakers â€“ Their free stuff and contest offers have produced for me. They have a large selection of offers.
CommissionJunction â€“ I have not run any CJ programs in a long time, but I made some nice money on offers for internet accelerator software and romance books a while ago.
While compiling this list, the one thing that stuck out at me was that I have had a variety of different types of advertising programs earn me good money. The key was just taking the time to ferret out the good programs and offers that fit well with my audience.
