My Top 5 Affiliate Programs – What Are They? Why Did I Choose Them?


Hello and welcome to My name is David Hurley. I started this blog with one aim in mind: to help you make money online by following my steps. Stick with me and I’ll show you my top 5 affiliate programs and how I earn from them.

Once you know what my top 5 affiliate programs are and how I work with them, you will be able to follow my steps and start making money from them too.

The Rule of “5”

After a decade of affiliate marketing I have found “the rule of 5” to be very useful. It gives me the ideal balance between the two virtues of “focus” and “diversity”.

One of the biggest blocks to succeeding in affiliate marketing is that we can end up joining and promoting too many programs. The more programs you promote, the more you are dividing your attention. If you try to promote too many programs you will spread your resources of time and money too thinly. As a result, you will struggle to make the breakthrough you are seeking.

So it makes sense to keep your focus narrow.

On the other hand, have seen too many “big” programs crash and burn over the last few years. There is no guarantee that the program you are working with today will still be there tomorrow. If you put everything into a single program, your income  could be wiped out if the program suddenly shuts down.

So it makes sense to diversify.

And for me, I have found the ideal balance between focus and diversity to be five programs. That is why I put most of my effort into promoting my top 5 affiliate programs.

Build Your MatrixBuild Your Matrix is a free downline builder that enables you to promote FIVE trusted matrix programs through a single site. I was already in all five programs when BYM was launched. When I saw how well designed BYM was, joining was a “no brainer.”  

BYM enables me to promote my Trafficwave autoresponder on autopilot. It also enables me to grow my downlines in three trusted online advertising sites, The Online Ad Network, Leased Ad Space and Crazy About Banners. The fifth matrix site is Four Corners Alliance, which I was “in” but not actively promoting. So it is nice to be able to build that downline as well, without any additional effort on my part. BYM is all about the synergy of “5”, which is why BYM itself is a great addition to my “Top 5 Programs.

Residual Income TV is a very well designed online showcase where you can promote your favourite programs. You have full control over what you can promote, and how you present your programs on the page.
