One of the leading affiliate program sites where you can find literally 1000’s of great affiliate products and services to market. They have a simple and speedy sign-up process and you could be marketing their clients and products quickly.
But let’s have a look at AWIN, well ex- Affiliate Window after they re-branded themselves.
If you are just starting out in affiliate marketing then you should definitely check out the offerings of AWIN. They are probably one of the best programmes out there, followed closely by Commission Junction (CJ) as well as ShareASale, Linkshare and of course ClickBank.
What makes AWIN somewhat different is the fact that they will charge you a ‘joining fee’ of around £5. But this fee will be refunded to you after you make the first commission. They use the £5 to verify your account details, nothing else. For them it is a way to weed out the chaff, i.e those of the people who are not serious about their affiliate marketing business.
Yet, to be accepted as an affiliate you will need to have a complete website which itself already has a steady flow of traffic. Failing to provide this information will fail your verification checks, the result of which will be shared with you within around 48 hours.
Once you have been verified and given access to your online account, don’t be tempted to sign up with just any affiliate deals. Make sure you only select the ones which will benefit your target market of your site. This is just common sense. Affiliate Window (AWIN) has a well laid out structure of categories, making it easy to find offers to promote.
As a tip – use/select offers which have a high AWIN status and also a green light on their payment status, which will save you surprises later, as sadly some client offers can sometimes be poor payers…
Lastly to make your affiliate business get off on a flying start – once you have found the offer(s) you wish to promote as an affiliate, copy the tracking code and use it as URL link in your posts, reviews or product description.
