Affiliate Programs: Connecting Bloggers To Brands

Affiliate Programs ListConnecting with brands is much easier today than ever before. With social media and a heavy emphasis on customer satisfaction, companies cannot afford to lose their top customers. The truth is, if one company does not deliver a great experience for consumers there are others willing to meet these consumers’ expectations.

Because bloggers are consumers as well, there is a need to share meaningful information across the web. Although most bloggers start out reviewing products and services without being compensated, the companies that meet their needs are typically the first ones they pick.

Partnering With Brands
I discussed Moms Affiliate, an affiliate network tailored to moms, in a recent post. This website opened my eyes to the perks of working with companies that sell products I already use, such as Dr. Seuss books, Diapers.com and zulily. Although I love having everything in one place, and Moms Affiliate allows me to connect with brands, their programs and the company representatives without ever leaving the website, there are others I would like to partner with that are not available.

Many of the companies you use on a daily basis have affiliate programs, and through a quick Google search, I found this list that may work for your blog/website:
