Top Affiliate programs to join in Nigeria
While planning to join affiliate programs, the following are suggested affiliate networks you can work for:
- Konga affiliate program
- Jumia affiliate program

- Commission Junction (CJ)
- Grammarly affiliate program
- Shareasale affiliate program
- eBay affiliate network, and many more.
While creating content on your blog, you may include your affiliate links where appropriate. To ensure you don’t lose too many signups, you must endeavor to shorten your affiliate links. Once you can publish informative and engaging content on that blog, generating tons of traffic is guaranteed.
While working for an affiliate company, you must have it at the back of your mind that you’re doing a real business. So, you must do it with an entrepreneurial spirit leaving no stone unturned.
Of all the ways to make money online, affiliate marketing is the only program that helps you earn the most. Other programs follow suit. For instance, by the time your website will have been generating up to $2500 a month, you will have been earning up to $5000-$10000 in monthly revenue.
From the same traffic that your blog generates, you’ll make all the affiliate sales for the month and you’ll earn the Adsense revenue as well. The probability that a reader/visitor will click on any of the affiliate links embedded within your blog content is higher than the probability that he will click on any of the Ads displayed by Google or any other advertising network.
Based on the probability/possibility suggested above, much more revenue is highly-likely to be made from affiliate commissions than from Adsense revenue on any website that promotes affiliate programs on all pages. To many veteran bloggers out there, Google Adsense revenue is just a piece of cake while the affiliate revenue is the major.
