Affiliate Programs - Where are the Honest Affiliate Programs?

There was a time when I would search aimlessly for affiliate programs that even came close to earning me a buck or two over the internet. Unfortunately, time after time I found out that there are a lot of affiliate programs out there that just wanted to take advantage of me, and my eagerness to start an internet business by joining affiliate programs. Then just when I felt like giving up to find a regular "9 to 5" I was blessed to run into a step by step, info packed, affiliate program guide (one that taught me how to sell other peoples' ebooks, etc. with or without a website) that actually backed up what it wrote about. It took my hand, and in very detailed method taught me everything that I needed to know, plus a lot more than I could ever ask for.

But my main reason for writing this article is to let people know that if you want to sell products using affiliate programs you have to go after it, and don't give up. It does take at least some work to make any REAL money in the beginning. I know that there are a lot of scams out there (and trust me I have bought into my share: 15 to be exact), but if you want a successful internet business you have to dig through the garbage, if you will, to find affiliate programs that match your needs (THEY ARE OUT THERE WAITING FOR YOU). When you do find the right affiliate programs that really work for you – it could be one of the best ways to make money online.

Now I run 3 online businesses (all selling other peoples products through affiliate programs), and now I am able to live a much more comfortable life with an income that is 7 times what it use to be. I don't claim to have the millions that most "affiliate programs' gurus" claim to have, BUT, I know that if I keep working hard, I will eventually tap (into even more) the true potential that certainly the internet possesses through working with great affiliate programs, and if you will it so can you.

Very down to earth article. I was well starting out my affiliate business after sitting on the fence for around 2years and boy, i had missed out some serious earning. I was also scam last few years ago for the *************.com advertisment program, but I still trust that there are still some honest program out there.

I had put my scam experience into a website that can be found I hope this website would in time to come evolve into a very nice website.
