Amazon Associates is one of the affiliate programs for beginners because it’s easy to join, has a low barrier to entry, and pays out commission based on sales which means that even small blogs with small readerships can make money. Amazon also has a great associates dashboard with all sorts of helpful stats about your performance as an associate.

In addition to paying, each time someone clicks through from your site and buys something within 24 hours, you also get a cut of any money spent on Amazon through your product links. It’s not as high as their typical commission rate, but it’s still something! But overall, if you are just starting with affiliate marketing, Amazon Associates is a program worth considering.


So, there you have it! Four affiliate marketing programs are great for beginners. As a beginner, we highly recommend picking one and diving in headfirst. This is one industry that has been around forever and will continue to be around forever. There are lots of choices out there, so good luck!
