The fact is that not all products are profitable enough so you have to make good searching before you adapt an affiliate program which has the best products.

I recommend to have an idea about the other affiliate programs types first and then have a look at one or two programs from each type to know your options, then choose which one you prefer and start diving deeply in the products that are offered.


Here are the types of affiliate programs:


1- Affiliate networks:

Most of affiliate marketers are using these networks to choose their products and promote them.
