Affiliate Programs

The Internet is full of companies prepared to pay you to sell their products for them. The vast majority are American but I’m restricting this list to UK companies. A small selection are listed here. If you are looking for something in particular e-mail me with your requirements and I’ll see what I can find.

In addition, a more recent development are sites that will pay you simply for placing ads on your site. In some cases, you’ll be paid per click, in others you earn for the number of impressions and others will pay you a monthly fee simply for listing them. See

The following “one stop shops” offer you the chance to sign up with several different UK companies, and get paid in pounds, making it easy to reach the minimum payout threshold that you may not reach with individual companies:

Commission Junction– US company with hundreds of affiliate programs to choose from – mainly US based but with a growing number of UK companies featured. Choice of 30 currencies including pounds and dollars for payment.

Trade Doubler – European Company with UK department for UK companies with a wide range of UK plans to choose from. Excellent commission packages.

Affiliate Future is a newish UK agency, with a minimum payout of just £20, and a wide range of offers, many paying a commission on visits and signups, rather than purely on sales.

Affiliate Window – UK company. Wide selection of companies to choose from.

UK Affiliates – UK company featuring UK affiliate schemes and paying in pounds. Good selection of household name programs to choose from.

afform – Newish entrant with good range of UK pay per lead and gaming programs.

Paid On Results is another recent entry to this sector with a rapidly growing choice of programs to join, many of which pay on free signups. Pays out at £25. – High quality affiliate programs from household names in the financial and insurance sectors.

International Affiliate Programs

The following agencies offer a mix of programs, many of which are aimed at a UK audience, plus a wider range if your site attracts a worldwide audience.

ClixGalore – Mix of primarily UK, Australian and US programs, but includes programs from other countries, all paying in local currency – pay per lead or per sale.

Check My Stats is another with strong UK and Australian programs, in addition to US, with a large proportion of pay per lead programs. – Although a US site, paying in dollars, this affiliate network offers probably the highest payouts anywhere for pay per lead programs. Most are geographically targeted and particularly suited to sites with a US bias, especially for visitors interested in completing surveys and taking part in sweepstakes or claiming freebies. What makes this one particularly rewarding is that any visitors that don’t meet the geographical criteria don’t just get rejected, but are diverted to other offers, at least some of which will be relevant to their country.

Physical products generally offer commission rates of up to 10%. For higher commission rates, consider eBooks. With negligible production costs, you can expect commission of around 50%.

When Make Your Site Sell! launched in 1999, it was instantly coined “The BIBLE of selling on the Net.” Unlike other Internet marketing books that have swept the Net since then and unlike the latest/greatest “hype of the day”, this one cost all of $17 and overdelivered at that remarkably low price.
