Hello and welcome to Top5Programs.com. My name is David Hurley. I started this blog with one aim in mind: to help you make money online by following my steps. I started my first online business back in 1999, and started my first affiliate marketing venture in 2007.
I’ve learned a lot since then and made a lot of mistakes as well along the road to Internet business success. So I think I’m well qualified to help you avoid my mistakes and get on the fast track to building a profitable online business.
Stick with me and I’ll show you my top 5 affiliate programs for 2022 and how I work with them. (NOTE: These programs are all time-tested and reliable. ALL FIVE were also my “Top 5 Programs” for 2021″ so in fact, there has been no change to my Top 5 Programs over the last 12 months.)
These are all 5 Star Programs that offer great value both in the services they provide and as profitable programs to promote as an affiliate. Every one of them has been “tried and tested” by myself and many other people over several years. They are programs that bring in a regular monthly commission income.
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. Check out my video review, or scroll down to read the blog post:
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 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.
So What Are My Top 5 Affiliate Programs?
- The Prosperity Marketing System – A $12 list building marketing funnel pays you 100% monthly Bitcoin commissions…
- SFI – Simply too good to be ignored – the Internet’s longest running free affiliate program. In 2021 SFI completely revamped its affilliate compensation plan, making it even more lucrative than before.
- Wealthy Affiliate – It’s time to get serious and learn the skills you need to succeed with an online business.
- Click Track Profit – Learn how to profit from the growing interface between blogging, social media, and crytpo currency.
- LeadsLeap continues to be my #1 source of referrals, sales and upgrades.
Why Did I Choose These “Top 5” Affiliate Programs?
#1 The Prosperity Marketing System
How would you like to have the ability to completely customize your very own marketing funnel system with programs of YOUR choice?
Yep, just delete the ones you don’t like and add your own. Then, promote your system and earn 100% commissions at the same time.
Multiple streams of income and downline growth is the fastest way to online wealth, and now you can have the control over which downlines to grow while you brand yourself independently of any of them.
Plus, if the people you refer decide NOT to join your primary business, you get paid anyway! Wait… A “No” means money in your pocket? You bet! You win no matter what happens, but only if you are using the Prosperity Marketing System.
I’ve been a member since PMS launched in 2009. Check out my detailed review of PMS for more info.
SFI has been a leader and innovator in online affiliate marketing for over two decades now, and the program just keeps getting better! I have been with SFI since 2007 and it has been my most consistently profitable program ever since.
SFI is also a great source of leads for my other programs.
In 2021 SFI completely revamped its affilliate compensation plan, making it even more lucrative than before.
#3 Wealthy Affilate
I joined Wealthy Affiliate in October 2015 for the online business training and the SiteRubix WordPress hosting platform because I needed somewhere secure and reliable to host my blogs, and I wanted to improve the results I was getting. Joining WA was one of the best moves I could have made. WA offers excellent training and a top quality tool suite to help you turn your business ideas into profit.
You can also bounce your ideas and questions off a vibrant forum community of like-minded people willing to pass on their knowledge and experience to you.
Their affiliate program is second to none with a good conversion rate and generous commissions. In fact, you can build a full-time income simply by the recurring commission payments you receive from Wealthy Affiliate.
#4 Click Track Profit
ClickTrackProfit relaunched in 2019 with a new focus on combining affiliate marketing with blockchain technology. The team at Click Track Profit have created a new series of training videos that train you to get paid for creating and curating content on the HIVE blockchain without needing to promote, refer, or sell anything to anybody.
CTP refer to themselves as “the ultimate step-by-step training program that has YOU in mind,” and in my experience, this is absolutely true.
The training at CTP will take you from the beginner stages all the way through to expert level video training, without complicating the process.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the first thing about crypto or blockchain technology when you get started. The training and the community will lead you step by step so you can start earning and stacking various crypto assets without needing to risk a single penny of your own money.
And best of all, you can go at your own pace using their revolutionary ‘drip fed training method’!
I have been with Leads since 2008. LeadsLeap is run by a Singaporean guy called Kenneth Koh. With LeadsLeap, Kenneth has created an excellent traffic generation program with some useful tools to help Internet marketers become more effective.
LeadsLeap is consistently my best source for referrals, sales and upgrades by a large margin.
In March 2020 they added “SendSteed,” which is a professional autoresponder, to their already impressive portfolio of marketing tools (for no extra cost if you are already upgraded). It is so good that I was able to shut down my previous autoresponder and migrate my lists to SendSteed, saving me around $18 a month in autoresponder fees while adding some excellent features (such as blog and YouTube broadcasts) that my old autoresponder did not offer.
Other features recently added are their image and PDF file hosting service. The PDF hosting service enabled me to cancel my pdf hosting service for my ebooks. Now I use Leadsleap to store my ebooks instead – another saving, thanks to LeadLeap and its outstanding owner, Kenneth Koh.
