Affiliate networks list
One way to find good ideas for niche web sites is by joining small affiliate networks and hunting for niches which don't
have many competitors. Affiliate networks are free to join. They can be hard to find. They sometimes call themselves names like
"marketing solutions provider", "pay-for-performance network", "cost-per-action advertising network", or even "performance-based online
marketing services company".
Affiliate networks provide pay-per-lead (PPL), pay-per-sale (PPS), pay-per-action (PPA) – sometimes called cost per action (CPA) – and pay-per-click (PPC) offers from merchants that you promote on your web site or in your newsletter.

The big 4 affiliate networks
Probably the most popular affiliate network, Commission Junction also has its share of critics. Finding and joining an appropriate affiliate program is easy. CJ also makes things easy for affiliates by consolidating all payouts into one check. It displays EPC (which to CJ rather oddly means "earnings per 100 clicks", not earnings per click). CJ is owned by ValueClick, which merged with Be Free.
LinkShare has more than 600 merchants in its affiliate network. Choose from categories such as books, music, flowers, fashion, computers, etc. You'll find some big name companies here, including Dell, Nordstrom, Target, Disney and American Express.
Offers a huge array of downloadable products, mainly ebooks. Because it is cheap and easy for merchants to join, the quality of the products provided varies enormously, from very good to downright awful. It's a popular place to search for overlooked niches.

MaxBounty promises "the highest CPAs in the market". It accepts affiliates from all countries, and pays affiliates in their local currency from local banks, to avoid large check fees. Payments are consolidated into one check. It has added Sub-ID tracking so that affiliates can track which of their surfers signed up for what offer. This is popular with reward site affiliates. MaxBounty now allows merchants to run their own affiliate program in an open marketplace format described as similar to that of the big three networks, only at a much more affordable price - namely no fees at all for 2005.
