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. Stick with me and I’ll show you my top 5 affiliate programs and how I earn from them.
These are all 5 Star Programs that are tried and tested and have proved to offer great value both in the services they provide as profitable programs to promote as an affiliate.
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.
So What Are My Top 5 Affiliate Programs?
- SFI – Build an online income with the Internet’s #1 free-to-join affiliate business.
- Wealthy Affiliate – This is my “blog platform” and business blog training service.
- Aweber – This is how I convert my leads into subscribers and customers.
- AdKreator – I use AdKreator to create unique squeeze pages for my marketing funnels, as well as banner ads and more.
- LeadsLeap – My #1 site for advertising and tracking my online business.
Why Did I Choose These “Top 5” Affiliate Programs?
It all begins with SFI…
SFI has been the Internet’s top free-to-join online business for over 16 years now. It is also one of the most innovative, with constant new developments and improvements. There’s so much good stuff going on that sales, success, and commissions just flow naturally.
SFI’s e-commerce store, TripleClicks.com is one of the fastest growing and most popular e-commerce, auction and gaming sites online. Starting from your very first day as an SFI affiliate, you can share in the profits of EVERY sale at TripleClicks by earning 50% of Commission Volume on direct sales, and by earning a generous monthly bonus payout from the Executive Pool 2.0.
This is where I host my WordPress blogs and get excellent Internet Marketing training.
Wealthy Affiliate was launched in 2005. It is a training site for people wanting to build an online business. It is simply the best training site I have been involved with.
For newbies and advanced marketers alike, the focus is on teaching you how to create a successful, long term online business.
Your membership includes high quality secure and reliable WordPress web-hosting through their Site-Rubix hosting platform. (That is where I host Top5Programs.com.)
Wealthy Affiliate is a service you can promote with pride and confidence. It is also a lucrative source of residual income.
Aweber is what I use to brand myself and promote my business. It is a professional autoresponder service designed to get you conversions like you have never seen.
First, Aweber helps you get leads. Then it helps you get those leads to know, like and trust you through its automated email follow-up and list broadcasting services.

Putting It All Together
My Top5Programs all work seamlessly together to create a dynamic online business with a single focus and multiple income streams.
My primary product is SFI – everything else I do supports my SFI business.
Wealthy Affiliate gives my my blogging platform – Top5Programs.com – and provides me with excellent online business blogging training.
Aweber pulls my blog and squeeze page visitors onto my mailing list. Once on my list, Aweber automatically contacts my leads with a series of compelling email newsletters. Those newsletters work to build trust and convert my subscribers into affiliates in one or more of my Top 5 Programs.
I use AdKreator to create unique squeeze pages and banner ads for my promotions.
Meanwhile, LeadsLeap is where I post ads to generate targeted traffic to the programs I promote. It’s also where I track all my hits to see which ads and links are delivering and which are not.
