Larwee states that its wise to pick an affiliate program with a good landing page. While this is a preference its not a requirement. If the affiliate program has a hard to use site just include information about exactly where to find the product being described and how to order.
Some programs don't support direct linking so this sort of thing is a requirement.

But I do agree picking things that would interest your visitors from an affiliate perspective is wise. Besides you can always include your normal advertising formats on the page you link to the affiliate program from.

If I can make a recommendation, it's smart to start with low paying CPA leads because, like previously posted, these leads are easy to generate. You'll learn how to tweak your pages to get better clicks/conversions, and the immediate results you'll see will certainly be encouraging.

HOWEVER...

Don't ignore some of the higher paying CPA campaigns. There are many that pay $10+ per lead/sale, and while these are fewer and farther in between, the effort required to generate such a lead is an education on it's own. In general, you have to work harder to generate these leads, so you'll learn different strategies for making money with them.

I hope this isnt off topic..
I have never dipped my toe into affilaite marketing at all.
But i do have a site that is full of jokes and gets 50+ uniques a day.
At the moment it has adsense on it and each click earns me 4 or 5 cents..
I think its earnt me about $3 so far in 2 months.

What sort of affiliate scheme can i look at that will intergrate with a joke site, i have looked on google for "joke affilaites" but i cant find anything.
Any reccomendations?

I guess the first thing you should do is build traffic, 50+ users/day is pretty low and wont make you much.

i know i need to build traffic, i have had 106 clicks on adsense and earned $7.04 ..

i was just wondering if there is a better way of making money for joke sites than adsense.

force5, you need to be careful about the AdSense stats you give out or you may end up with nothing from Google. It is against the Google Terms Of Service to release the type of information you did and bad things can happen to people when they violate the TOS. I just thought you might like to know.

Welcome to Geek/Talk, leonusst.

This thread certainly is valuable. Kudos to Larwee and crew for putting together such a succinct and practical collection of tips.

You're entering an exciting new industry, leonusst, but one that can be frustrating unless you have access to advice from more experienced players. For that reason, I hope to see you frequent Geek/Talk a great deal in the future, particularly as your business starts to expand.
