*nb. A website is never truly ready, you can always add something new 🙂
A lot of people choose to be an affiliate of Amazon, but there are millions of other alternatives to approach.
E.g. When you type in your “product + affiliate” you get thousands of results. And you can filter out the best paying, or the best company for the environment by reading their terms, conditions and company ideals etc.

5. Getting Paid
When a sale takes place between the customer and the webshop/company, (of which you are promoting products from on your website), you get paid. And the payments can vary enormously. From 2% to over 50% per sale. So it is of great importance to check the fees and terms carefully before you apply for affiliation. Click here for affiliate networks.

Looking for something specific and the search engine crawls millions of web pages within a few seconds. And proposes the most relevant pages to them. When people like your title and intro text, they click your link. Great keywords/ or keyword phrases are telling the Google or Bing search engine what your post is about and they ensure that your article is offered.
