Today, I want to talk to you about the best MLM affiliate programs for network marketers to promote.
If you’re committed to building your MLM Business online, it would be in your best interest to have multiple streams of income. Most of the people you talk to about your products or business opportunity will NOT join your team as a distributor or customer, regardless of your closing skills.
That’s why it can be beneficial to have a variety of different products and services to promote. If people aren’t interested in your business opportunity, you can offer them something else, which helps them AND allows you to make additional income. Several examples include leads, training, websites and hosting, coaching, and systems.
To clarify, I’m not talking about promoting more than one MLM Company. I’m talking about selling picks and shovels, in addition to your MLM Company.
This post is really designed for people who want an online business like I have, and want to utilize blogging, solo ads, email marketing, video marketing and other online methods to build their business. It’s also for people who want to build an affiliate marketing business specializing in the network marketing industry.
I build my network marketing business like an affiliate marketing business, because it matches my personality, talents, skills and desires. It is by far the only, or best way to build a network marketing business, but it does work very well for me. And it can work well for you too.
My overall business strategy is to build my network marketing business from my home office, to educate other network marketers, to be an ambassador to the industry, to recommend tools and services that help other network marketers succeed, to create multiple streams of income, and build my downline at the same time. I think it is a win-win situation for everyone involved.
The Top 8 Best MLM Affiliate Programs
What I want to do in this post is share what I believe are the best MLM affiliate programs for network marketers to promote. All of these programs I promote myself.
Please keep in mind that you have many different affiliate programs options to choose from. The most important thing to look for are (1) generous commissions, (2) residual commissions, and (3) high conversion rates.
# 1 Lightning Leads / Power Leads System
Of all the MLM Affiliate Programs I promote, this one is the best and offers the best opportunity. I LOVE this program. I am a happy customer and affiliate. This MLM Affiliate Program is designed to help you build your business online. It is an ONLINE SYSTEM for your network marketing business. It will work for any rep in any company in any country. There is also a ton of training about how to build your network marketing business online. You can buy a lifetime membership for $7. They also have several upgrades that are optional. I went ALL IN at the Platinum level, which was about $700, but it allows me to earn up to $526 per sale. The community is amazing. It gives you capture pages, auto-responders, training, and an affiliate program. You can even earn affiliate commissions by promoting their live events. Even with the $7 lifetime membership, it offers a ton of value. You can use it to promote ANY business, or use it as a standalone business. Learn more.
Prior to changing their name and revamping their business, Elite Marketing Pro used to be called “Magnetic Sponsoring.” I promoted Magnetic Sponsoring successfully for more than five years, starting in 2009.
Elite Marketing Pro offers a wide variety of of information products for internet marketers and network marketers. Some folks call it a business in a box. Once you purchase any of their products, you become an affiliate. The commissions range from 20% to 90% based upon which route you take. You can promote any of their products, or promote their system. You choose. Their training products are exceptional. They offer about 10 different training courses designed around building your business online.
I have earned a consistent income with them since 2009. This is also a great standalone business, which can be done anywhere in the world from a laptop. EMP has a high conversion rate and large commissions. You focus all of your time and energy on generating leads, and they do the follow-up and closing for you. If you upgrade to a VIP member like I did, you can earn up to $1,375 per sale. Learn more about Elite Marketing Pro.
# 3 Herculist Safelist & Solo Ads
Herculist is an online advertising solution for network marketers and affiliate marketers. It offers you an affordable way to get more leads and website traffic. You can also purchase inexpensive solo ads, banner ads, and other ads.
It is the most AFFORDABLE way to advertise your network marketing business I have ever found. For about $50 per year as a GOLD MEMBER, you can email 80,000 members every single day. Do that every day for a year, and you could generate several thousand leads (I’m not guaranteeing you will).
They also have a VERY generous affiliate program, which can provide you an extra income stream in your business. The bottom line is that all network marketers need more leads and this is a great, inexpensive way to get more leads. You even earn $5 when you join for free. Learn more about Herculist.
# 4 Aweber
I’ve been a customer of Aweber since 2009! There are several things I really like about Aweber. First and foremost, if you are building your business online you need an auto-responder. As I see it, Aweber is the best auto-responder service around.
Aweber will let you build your own email list, which is the greatest asset in your business. It lets you schedule and automate your email and follow-up process. It saves you lots of time and makes you money on complete auto-pilot. I make money just about every time I send out an email. That’s the same position you want to be in.
Aweber is less than $20 per month to use. It’s the best $20 you could spend in your network marketing business.
What makes it a great affiliate program is that you earn residual commissions. As long as the people you refer stay paying customers (and most do) you earn 30% commissions each month!
That really adds up as you refer more and more people. Refer people one time and get paid month-after-month. I’ve had some customers who have been with Aweber for three or four years! Learn more about Aweber.
# 5 Domains & Hosting
Everyone needs their own domain and website. It’s non-negotiable as I see it. While there are other services that pay higher affiliate commissions, NameCheap is the only service I recommend and use to others. Both of my high traffic websites are hosted by NameCheap and I am VERY happy with their customer service and up time. They are responsive, helpful and offer a tremendous value for anyone needing to buy a domain or hosting. Learn more about NameCheap.
# 6 Udimi
Solo ads are rising in popularity. This is when you contact someone with a large email list and have them send your email on your behalf, to their list. There are lots of solo ad sellers online. Some are good. Most suck. It’s hard to know who to trust. I use a third party vendor that regulates and verifies ALL of their sellers and ads. I use their service all the time and enjoy it. They are called UDIMI. You can learn more about them here.
# 7 List Joe
List Joe is a safelist. This is a database of people who give you permission to send them your offers. List Joe has been in business online since 2005. You can join for free and email your ad to 1,000 people every week. As a paid member, which cost me $197 per year, you can email 8,500 people every 3 days. I normally get about 10 new leads with each email I send, so if you add that up over a year, you could easily generate 1,200 leads per year, all at the cost of just $197. Of course, individual results will vary, but this is my experience. That is a great deal. If you don’t buy the one-time-offer of $197 per year, you can choose the monthly option of $67 per month. It comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. There is also an affiliate program that pays you 50% for each paying member you refer. You can learn more here.
# 8 ViralURL
I’ve been using this service since 2008, off and on. I am a very satisfied customer. They are a safelist, which lets you email 3,000 prospects every three days. You can also purchase solo ads. You can upload banner ads. You can even earn advertising credits by reading other people’s emails. They even have an affiliate program which pays out up to 60% of each purchase. You can sign up for free, but there isn’t much value in that. I would check out one of the paying options. I picked the ELITE package, which is $364 per year, and let’s me email 6,000 people every 3-days. Learn more.
Amazon Affiliate: Amazon is a trusted website. Although the commissions and conversions are small, you can make a decent affiliate income with Amazon IF you have a lot of website traffic.
Google Adsense: Similar to Amazon, you need a lot of website traffic to make significant money with Google Adsense. That being said, it is a great passive income source if you have your own website or blog.
Clickbank: They offer a wide variety of digital products people can buy. These are mostly information products such as courses and eBooks. Within the network marketing niche, they have a few good products to promote.
JVZoo: Similar to Clickbank, JV Zoo is a one stop resource to find different affiliate products to promote. These are mostly digital products, such as eBooks and courses.
Share-a-Sale: There are many different vendors on this website that sell products and services. You can get your own affiliate link to promote the vendor of your choice and earn affiliate commissions.
Commission Junction: This is similar to Share-a-Sale. There are lots of vendors to choose from.
In summary, these are the best MLM affiliate programs for network marketers to promote, as I see it. At the end of the day, you need to find an affiliate program that makes sense to you and offers a great value to your email subscribers. I also suggest you find an affiliate program that pays you at least $10 to $50 or more per sale, so it will be worth your time to promote it.
