Best Affiliate Marketing Resources

Most of them are free and others are freemium or paid, I will write which one I use and how I use them.

There is no way that I am going to pay for music, movies or software. I spend money only where I really need too. Most of these resources are free affiliate marketing resources.

Here in this section, I will list all the best tools I am using day to day to become a very good affiliate marketer and also other things I love.

I will give you multiple options for certain products and I will write at the bottom of each:

  • If I am using it (♥) or If I am not using it (♣) and why.
  • Some comments.
  • FREE | FREEMIUM |PAID

** ♥♥ Means that you need to use it and have it absolutely!

The only thing that is completely necessary to start this journey is a hosting plan to host your site, and files and domains/URLs.

There is almost no way you can make big cash without having a hosting plan and some sites, or at least some domains you can redirect traffic from with no hitches.

Some people are making money only using social media, but I think is retarded and it takes too many efforts and it leaves nothing to you that you can re-use in the future.

THIS IS A VERY LONG LIST OF AWESOME TOOLS. ALWAYS REFER TO THE TABLE OF CONTENTS BELOW IF YOU GET LOST OR TO PICK THE CATEGORY OF THE RESOURCE!

HOSTING



tmd hostingTMD-hosting is my favorite hosting company, they provide regular hosting and cloud hosting and VPS and dedicated servers for a cheap price.

Google ranks website based on page speed, and with a cloud hosting plan that will cost you 10 times more with another hosting company you will get high speed.

Also, they have awesome customer service and they allow any kind of websites, even adult if you are in that nice. TMD-hosting (the most dedicated hosting) is very easy to use, very fast to interact with and it has many awesome features like WordPress installation and unlimited bandwidth and email and trust me it’s the best hosting company.

  • ♥♥ I am using it because it’s cheap and quality 300 times better than other providers.
  • ♥♥ Because after years of experience the quality and value for money are the best.
  • ♥♥ PAID

liquidwebLiquid Web is definitely the best hosting plan you can get. They have dedicated servers, cloud and VPS hosting.

The speed is the fastest on the internet so no contest with anything else.

The problem is that is rather expensive and if you don’t have a solid business or you are sure that the internet will be your best friend it is not worth it. The page speed they provide is very fast and Google will love it.

  • ♣ I am not using it because it is too expensive, I do have traffic increasing but still, it’s not the time for this investment.
  • ♣ I have tested websites that are hosted there and the speed is blazing fast.
  • ♣ PAID

bluehost Bluehost This is the most used and promoted online, the reason why everyone promotes this is that they pay higher commission compared to the others above.

But honestly, is not a good hosting plan, if you want to get something that everyone is getting get Bluehost but there is no content between TMD-hosting for price, speed, and quality. If you want to join the mass get Bluehost.

  • ♣ I am not using it because the quality is not great and it costs more than tmd
  • ♣ It pays higher commission so everyone is promoting this and also is very famous
  • ♣ PAID

dreamhostDreamhost is a good alternative to TMD hosting, speed is the same almost, they have dedicated servers, and regular hosting and so on.

The price is higher than TMD so for me, still, TMD is the best, but this one is used by big companies and is a very reliable hosting provider.

I recommend it to anyone, but still, the price is rather high. If you are just starting and if you are willing to pay more I would go for liquidweb instead.

  • ♣ I am not using it because I am very happy with TMD-hosting
  • ♣ Used from huge companies and the platform looks great.
  • ♣ PAID

siteground hostingSiteground is another legit hosting provider like tmd-hosting. They are very famous for the blazing fast speed that they provide and the simplicity of their hosting platform.

They are based in Europe and prices are a little bit higher compared to TMD. But if you are looking for another alternative and support in many languages and fast but more expensive.

With TMD you will get basically the same service for a lot cheaper, but still, siteground speed is definitely something they are famous for, and if you are willing to pay more, go for it.

  • ♣  I am more happy with TMD-hosting
  • ♣ They are famous for website speed.
  • ♣ PAID


ONLINE BANKS



n26 bank N26 is the best bank you will ever have. I have put all my money in it since it is 100%, super secure and the website and the app are to the next level.

I will never stop to say how nice and awesome this bank is. If you don’t believe me, just open a bank account with IBAN and SWIFT now from your computer or mobile in just 8 minutes.

The credit card is so cool looking and I would never go back to another bank. It is available all over Europe and the United States and Canada. Expanding all over very soon. Open an account now and dump your shitty bank. #nobullshitbank

  • ♥♥ I have it of course, it is very radical and awesome
  • ♥♥ In 8 minutes you will have a credit card and an IBAN / SWIFT and you can get paid online.
  • ♥♥ FREE AND PAID

payoneer Payoneer is a very popular payment gateway for affiliate marketers. It was used a lot a few years ago and still a lot use it to pay affiliates.

It is 100% free and you will receive a credit card, and a semi IBAN/Swift personal code.

I call it semi because it will not be personal like with N26 but when you will receive cash there, it will pass first to the Payoneer network. But still is second in my list of best payments gateway.

  • ♥ I do have it and use all the time, some CPA pay me there.
  • ♥ Is not awesome like N26 but you must have it, I get paid on Payoneer and then withdraw to N26
  • ♥ FREE

epayments ePayments is another payment system a lot of CPA are using to pay you. It is similar to Payoneer but it costs $2.49 a month to have it, and fees are kind of high.

But the credit card and the website and the service are great.

Also, it is interesting the fact that you can purchase and sell cryptocurrency directly from their dashboard. You must have it as well even thoughts costs are kind of a rip-off.

  • ♥ I do have it and use it, what I  usually do  is to get paid here and then transfer to N26 for $0.5.
  • ♥ Fees are low, it is possible to transfer to cryptocurrency
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

paxumPaxum is very old and ugly looking, but still, a lot of people will pay you here, unfortunately.

To order a card is $40 a year, I did not order the card and usually what I do is getting the money in paxum and then withdraw them with a WIRE to my awesome N26 account.

If you do this you will have to pay only the WIRE fees and not $40 for the card. I think it is very smart since the website doesn’t look good.

  • ♥ I do have it because a lot of people is using it to pay me.
  • ♥ It is not looking good, but you must have it.
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

transferwiseTransferwise is an awesome tool that will help you eliminate the fees when moving your money around.

I use it sometimes when I need to transfer money to someone that is not using my currency.

But actually, if you have N26 you are pretty much covered with this too, since they have the lowest fees on the planet.

But transferwise can come in handy if you are living in a country where N26 is not available.

  • ♣ I do have it but I don’t use it that much, I have N26 that is awesome enough.
  • ♣ Fees between currencies are very cheap.
  • ♣ FREE

aweber Aweber is a great e-mail marketing platform, I like it a lot because is super easy and has features like landing pages and pop-ups and many other user-friendly features.

I use it because they are more flexible with the adult niche but honestly, if it was not because I have some adult sites as well, I would just use MailChimp.

Aweber is similar to MailChimp but it is paid. Meanwhile, MailChimp is freemium with 2000 subscribers free.

Speed is one of the most important factors in SEO, so definitely check out gtmetrix.

It is 100% free to use it unless you want to upgrade to services where they are going to fix all the problems on your site to make it faster.  I am fixing all these problems that gtmetrix is telling me to fix alone DIY.

I have several websites with over 30.000  pages all hardcoded from me and there is no way that I can make a sitemap without screaming frog. Also, it will tell you where your website lacks of SEO. Screamingfrog is a powerful crawler that will crawl your site in any part.

expireddomains ExpiredDomains is a marketplace of domains that are going to expire or that are just expired or going to expire soon.

The advantages, if you know what you are doing of buying an expired domain are huge. A new domain will have domain authority 1 on a scale of 1-100.

If you get a second-hand domain you might get a domain with a DA already higher and so it will be easier to rank on google. Be aware that some domain might have high DA but still not a good investment. There are also dozens of other metrics that count, one of them is the spam score for instance. If you don’t know what you are doing just get a new domain, otherwise you can think about getting an expired one.

  • ♣ I have never used it but I know people that do.
  • ♣ It is just perfect if you know what you are doing to skip the long process of acquiring authority on a website.
  • ♣ PAID

flippa Flippa is very similar to expired domains. You can also sell your domains and buy domains and bid on domains.

It is, in my opinion, the best marketplace to buy and sell certain kind of businesses. I used to buy cool domains with nice names that were not used yet, and then re sell it.

I have started to make an OK amount of money but it was taking me too long so I decided to focus on affiliate marketing. If you are willing to spend a lot of time doing similar tasks buying and selling domains might be an option.

If your business grows then my advice is to get clickfunnels, since they provide any kind of service existed on earth, and you will not need anything else then.

FREELANCING



fiverr Fiverr is one of the most used freelancing platforms. You can sell gigs on your own or buy gigs from freelancers.

Be aware of people from Pakistan, India etc. They are trying to scam you most of them they don’t know what they do. Some services I use Fiverr for are like, creating logos, outsourcing some repetitive and boring job that anyone can do.

But for the hard and important stuff, I only trust my self. Do not trust anyone telling you that he will rank your SEO rankings for $5 or even $200 or whatever it is. It does not exist anyone able to do this, SEO requires time no one can fix your problems in a shot.

  • ♥ I use it, I have some gigs my self as well and I buy gigs for certain things

ANALYTICS



google analytics Google Analytics is the advanced tool from Google to keep track of everything that happens on your website.

You need to track traffic and things that are happening on your site if you want to know if your website is actually doing good or bad.

There are many tools to use and this one is free and very powerful but sometimes it can be hard for someone to read data. I always combine google analytics with StatCounter below. They are both free and StatCounter and the StatCounter app makes it a little bit more easy to see your stats and what’s going on your sites.

  • ♥♥ Yes I use it all the time
  • ♥♥ Advanced statistics from google
  • ♥♥ FREE

statcounter StatCounter combined with google analytics will give you a good overview and understanding of what’s going on in your websites.

I use also Quantcast but I feel like having Google analytics and StatCounter is enough.

This is interesting for the smartphone app which is very easy to use. It is  100% free if you are willing to lose old stats in replacement of new stats.

I never look at my stats of 6 months ago so it is more than enough to have the free version and I highly recommend to have a StatCounter account linked to any of your websites.

  • ♥ I have the free version and check my stats many times during the day
  • ♥  Easier to read compared to google analytics, if you are lazy this is great
  • ♥ FREE

clickbank Clickbank is usually where everything starts for an affiliate marketer. If you say “I am an affiliate marketer” ignorant people will say, ” oh so you sell for Amazon and clickbank?”.

Well, my answer is no, I have made an account with clickbank a while ago, they have millions of offers but honestly, most of them are scammy offers and still they convert and you will make money but you will not add so much value to your customers.

To get started is pretty good, but the payouts are not that hight and also if you don’t constantly earn money the will actually take out money from your account if you don’t reach the minimum payout.

I would start to make an account just so you will have the chance to see how a huge marketplace of offers looks like and how hoplinks and stuff works.

  • ♣ I have an account, I have made some money but then I did not reach the payout and lost my money.
  • ♣I still use it all the time to find niche ideas, new products will pop up on Clickbank when they will come out so it’s good to use click bank to study what people want to buy, and then it’s your job to make a product or find a product that will actually add value
  • ♣ FREE

TRAFFIC SOURCES



plugrush Plugrush with plugrush, you can buy or sell traffic. It is an advertiser platform and extremely good if you are looking for paid traffic.

I have some tubes where I have installed plugrush on it and the cool thing is that I make money all the time from people clicking on my videos.

I also used it to do some media buying and the platform is with no doubts the most user-friendly and more efficient at least in the adult industry.

  • ♥ I am selling my traffic to them and sometimes buying traffic
  • ♥ It is a very nice platform very user-friendly
  • ♥ FREE

juicyads Juicyads another adult advertiser platform, it works a little different compared to plugrush. Here the thing that people sell or buy the most is ad space on their or somebody else’s website.

Some websites with a lot of traffic can ask up to $5000 a week for an ad space. What I am doing is to place ads of crakrevenue offers to still cheap but good websites.

I usually pay $50 a week to place an ad. I also use it to drive traffic to my own sites and I usually pick the cheapest ads possible because I am interested to gain some referral traffic from more authoritative websites, it’s not my main goal to convert if I point to my sites. They might convert then when they land on my sites.

  • ♥ I have used it to place ads on other niche sites
  • ♥ It is very cheap
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

trafficjunky Trafficjunky is the heaven for adult traffic. They have powers on all the most famous adult sites on the internet, they sell ad space and traffic.

You can sell your traffic too and they are just the kings. I have put in the 3rd position because there’s the catch.

Trafficjunky is extremely expensive and if you don’t have a huge budget, at least $30.000 a day to run campaigns you probably will not make any good money.

I have used it like 2 years ago when I was a newbie and I swear I blew $500 in like 30 minutes without making any money. But I know that the big guys that are investing serious money with them are making millions of dollars a month. So if you have the budget and you know what you are doing just try traffic junky.

  • ♥ I have used a while ago
  • ♥Super expensive but best source of traffic
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

monetizer Monetizer finally some mainstream traffic. Here you can buy traffic from any niche and kind.

I am not a super expert with monetizer but I have a friend that he his and he’s making a killing with it.

If you are interested I will make you in contact with him.

He’s gonna definitely be more helpful than me with this traffic source. Definitely, check monetizer out if you need clean and nice traffic to drive offers too.

They are growing a lot as a company and they are leading the business for sure.

  • ♣ Not using it that much but it’s good.
  • ♣ The well-designed platform, traffic of any kind.
  • ♣ FREE

propelleradsPropellerads they have any kind of traffic, mainstream and on any offers.

You can be a publisher and an advertiser as always and what’s propeller ads famous for are their crazy awesome pop-unders pop-ups and everything that pop up websites when you see them is probably coming from propellers ads.

If you are interested in buying traffic from pop-unders it is so cheap. You can get 50.000 pop-unders on many different sites for almost no price. The problem is that many browsers at these days blocks pop-unders and a lot of people hate them and just close them. But still is very cheap and they offer ads placements and regular traffic as always.

  • ♥ I am using it for popunders.
  • ♥ You get cheap targeted traffic for just a few bucks. Totally worth it.
  • ♥ FREE

zeroparkZeropark is a very good traffic source as well as monetizer. These two guys are rivals and awesome, I would make an account and test it.

There are people that combine peerfly with zero parks and make so much cash.

The thing is to create the right combination of offer and traffic quality. That is why in the next resources sections there will be the best affiliate marketing trackers on the web. You need to track your traffic and especially if you pay for it with advertiser platform like zero parks.

  • ♥ I am using it when I decide to run some media buying campaign for certain offers.
  • ♥ It is very nice and easy to use
  • ♥ FREE


TRACKERS



redtrack.ioRedtrack.io is according to me the best affiliate marketing tracker. I have created a nice article on this blog and it is 100% free if you plan to use less than 50.000 events a month.

There is no contest with any other tracker and also you need a tracker if you want to be a good affiliate.

With a free account it can be more than enough tacking less than 50.000 but if you need more plans starts from $29 dollars. They have many networks already yet within the platform and they have crazy features like tracking from own domain and the platform is way easier to use compared to the most famous affiliate marketing tacker called voluum.

I am sure that in the next few years voluum will be replaced b redtrack since it is way better and cheaper. So reserve your seat on redtrack and make an account now.

  • ♥ I am using and love it so much
  • ♥ Great customer support
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

 voluumVoluum is the most known marketing tracker online. Probably because was one of the first to be invented and most of the affiliate marketing using it and are lazy to change it.

Honestly, I think that is pretty good but it’s freaking expensive and there is no trial. There is no way to try it if you don’t pay $99 dollars.

I don’t want to pay $99 dollars a month for something I can not try. Also, it is very expensive compared to redtrack so there is no contest to the fact that redtrack.io is the best tracker.

  • ♣ I don’t use it, it costs too much, I use redtrack.io
  • ♣ It is good but there is no trial.
  • ♣ PAID

adsbridge Adsbridge is a voluum competitor since a few years, and at least they have a 15 days trial. It is expensive and there is no contest with redtrack.io which if you did not get it yet is the best affiliate tracker out there.

Ads bridge is an alternative to voluum and still is pretty well know and used.

Certain things are easier to do on ads bridge but still the cheapest and best alternative to adsbridge and voluum is redtrack.io. So I am very frugal spending my money and I think that you should get redtrack.io as well.

  • ♣ I never used it
  • ♣ I know it’s famous and good but expensive
  • ♣ PAID


PRIVACY



norvpnNordVPN If you are looking for protection, anonymity, and security on the internet you might consider buying a VPN.

What a VPN (virtual private network) does is giving you a personal IP address protected from, in this case the NordVPN network.

You can also change your IP address to escape country blocks. Like a famous use of a VPN is from Chinese people that want to use Facebook in China. But in affiliate marketing, a VPN can be super useful so that it is harder to get blocked on certain services and or if you get banned from something you can’t create an account without having to move in another apartment to get a new IP address.

I am using it sometimes and I just buy it when I need it for certain things, I will talk about this more in the blog.

  • ♥ I am using it sometimes but not all the time
  • ♥ NordVPN is the best VPN you can get, just trust me
  • ♥ PAID

protonmailProtonmail is the coolest email service. I like it because they are completely encrypted, no one will be ever able to read your messages.

They are using a protocol that only sender and receiver can read and no one will be able to see what you wrote. Also, it is very fast to use and the inbox rate is way higher than Google.

Still, you will need a Gmail account if you want to be an affiliate. You can link your custom e-mail or proton e-mail to Gmail with gsuite. If you don’t know anything about g-suite just go check them out.

You will get a free trial and it’s basically transforming any email to a Gmail email and it will keep the original format.

You will be able to use hangout and youtube and it will be a Gmail email with google drive and 1TB of space. Check out gsuite and protonmail.

  • ♥ FREEMIUM AND PAID

 courseraCoursera Looking for free education from Harvard, Stanford, MIT and so on? Well, coursera is what you need then. The best professors worldwide prepare the most awesome classes ever.

This is my favorite online learning platform in the world. They have interesting courses of any kind and the classes are awesome.

EXTRA TOOLS



cloudflareCloudflare explaining Cloudflare in a resource page is impossible. I will write a lot about it. But just so you know it is mandatory and free from what we need.

The first thing you want to do to make money online is buying hosting with TMD, choose a domain name, and the setup your Cloudflare account.

This is so important and it’s mandatory that you have it, Cloudflare will improve your website speed. Will give you free https protocol and will allow you to inject code in your site without compromising performances and one of the most awesome and important features is that it will give you total control of the DNS of all your website from one single place.

Also, DNS parameters changes are immediate, meanwhile using your hosting provider panel can take up to 2 days to see the change. Cloudflare is a must have it and with the free 100% version you will be good to go.

  • ♥♥ IT IS A MUST HAVE IT AND I HAVE ON ALL MY SITES
  • ♥♥ I HAVE THE FREE VERSION AND IT’S MORE THAN ENOUGH
  • ♥♥ FREE AND PAID

foxpush Foxpush is the best push notification system I know. I am saying this because with a free account you will get 50.000 subscribers on your site.

I am still using the free plan on all of my sites since I did not reach 50.000 subscribers for push notifications yet.

But honestly compared to all the other companies like pushcrew and many other this is one is the revolution and 50.000 subscribers for free it’s just insane. I have push notifications also on this blog and I think is a good way to send your visitor’s notification on new posts or offers. Of course, without spamming too much.

  • ♥ I do have it and with a free plan.
  • ♥ 50.000 free a month.
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

skitchSkitch is a great resource and software that will allow you to draw sketches on your pictures. It is very easy to use and fast.

You can blur images, add notes and arrows and text. It is my favorite free tool to modify pictures and adding things in a few clicks without having to use photoshop.

I like a lot because it is working on a computer and it is free and fast. You can download it now and start adding stuff to your pictures with ease.

  • ♥ I have it free and use it all the time
  • ♥ An easy way to add things to your pictures, such as arrows, blur, and text
  • ♥ FREE

filezilla Filezilla is the best FTP client software. It is 100% free and a must have it if you want to become a good affiliate marketer.

You need to talk to your hosting and via FTP is the best way to do it.

There are many other more fancy software out there, but still, FileZilla and its ancient look is the one that works the best.

A feature I have found only here is the “binary transfer” option. What a binary transfer means is that your files are transferred not as a file but as a bunch of 1 and 0, this makes it a lot faster to move around files from place to place via FTP.

  • ♥ I am using all day long and free
  • ♥ Binary option transfer for the file is a special feature of FileZilla
  • ♥ FREE

brackets.io Brackets.io is the best coding editor. I like it because is open source from Adobe and for HTML it has a preview mode that works without having to run a server on your local machine.

Meanwhile, if you have PHP code or you are using a framework like ruby or rails you would need to have a container like docker or setup a server on your local machine.

I use it to edit files on my hosting from FileZilla. You need to put as a default editor brackets.io once is downloaded on FileZilla and you will be ready to code.

  • ♥ In my opinion the best editor.
  • ♥ You must have to modify the code.
  • ♥ FREE

bitly Bit.ly is a famous URL shortener, I don’t’ love it but it has an analytics system more powerful than rebrandly so I use it as well.

But for most of my shortened URLs, I use usually or my own coded redirects or rebrandly just below.

Bit.ly is very famous and I do have many short links there but they have many restrictions.

Especially with affiliate links, it is not the best solutions ever. If you need to send out some ugly or weird link this is the way you should do it if you don’t know how to cloak.

  • ♣ I use it but is not the best
  • ♣ Nice analytics
  • ♣ FREE AND PAID

rebrandly Rebrand.ly is my favorite URL shortener. The reason why it is is that you can have custom URL using your domain to shortened URLs and get n OK analytics from rebrandly.

Also, they do not block affiliate links like bit.lyt, and if you use Cloudflare you can redirect even long domains. meanwhile, with bitly, it has to be a short domain.

Like here on marcodiversi.com I am using a subdomain to redirect from rebrandly you can check it out here go.marcodiversi.com and everything that goes after the URL is tracked from rebrandly like here go.marcodiversi.com/marcodiversi . You can not do this on Bitly especially on a subdomain and a long domain like this one with a lot of chars.

  • ♥ I have it  and love it
  • ♥ Custom domain shorten features
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

addthisAddthis is a very famous social media sharing buttons and social media-based tool and resource. I don’t love it but it’s fine.

If you are using Cloudflare as I said before, you would be able to inject addthis code into your website without compromising speed and quality of your site due to many buttons and javascript.

I like a lot the option with sharing buttons that are opening when you hover over them. I do use it on some of my sites, but on some others, I like more to have hard links in my footer or somewhere on my site.

  • ♥ I use it on some sites for social media sharing buttons
  • ♥ It is easy to use
  • ♥ FREE AND PAID

canva Canva is very amazing. It makes it easy to create thumbnails for youtube, awesome pictures and banners and even resumes and infographics.

A friend of mine introduced it to me, I thought it was a joke but I ended up using it all the time all day long instead of photoshop.

It is a must have it tool and wit the free version you will be able to do absolutely everything.

There is also a paid version where you will have more options but you don’t need it. I mean if you feel like you might need it just go for it, but me I am using it 100% free.

  • ♥ I use it all the time and for free
  • ♥ You can do crazy stuff with it and it looks good
