Top 10 Earning Affiliate Programs for July, 2014

Affiliate marketing is one of the oldest ways of making money online in Canada and it can be very lucrative if you focus on the right programs. Merchants may have an in-house affiliate program or join networks like Share-A-Sale, where thousands of website owners may partner up with them for a percentage of sales they make. Affiliates add the merchants’ banners to their website, or write content around a text link. They can also promote merchants in their newsletters. Clicks on the links are tracked and commissions are paid through the network or directly if the program is independently operated.

There are hundreds of thousands of affiliate (partner) programs available to Canadian website owners and bloggers, which makes it difficult to select a few to focus on. We all want to choose the most lucrative offers but it’s hard to say which ones will be successful. Some may pay less but convert more, or vice versa. The final outcome will depend on how well the program is matched to your website visitors and how good you are at affiliate marketing in general. You will also want to consider seasonal shopping, which starts earlier online to allow for shipping time. “Seasonal” can be anything from calendar holidays to actual seasons, such as promoting hotel affiliates during the Summer vacation months.

A little inside info can go a long way in affiliate marketing. I manage several websites and blogs, a number of which participate in affiliate programs to generate revenue. There are a broad range of sectors covered between them, making this compilation beneficial for most affiliate marketers. I’ve ranked them according to the amount they brought in for each individual website, and combined totals when multiple sites earned from the same merchant. I’ll be doing this for you every month in the hopes of saving you some time and ultimately increasing your income.

I’m looking forward to August so get cracking! 😉


This is insight I can definitely use. Your site is a great asset to Canadian businesses and I look forward to its growth.


I’m starting to sign up for affiliate programs although they don’t all like new blogs and mine isn’t online yet. Good to know though!

I’m going into the pet niche with a blog and greatly appreciate the inside info for pet affiliate programs. Its encouraging to see how well they do for you too. There’s so many pet blogs online and I know it will be tough going but hopefully I’ll be unique enough to get some attention and make a few bucks. 😀


So helpful! I join too many affiliate programs and end up making a few cents here and there. I need to focus like you do and track numbers.


Thank you so much!
