According to one report from Wikipedia, total sales generated through affiliate networks in 2006 was ?2.16 billion in the UK alone.
MarketingSherpa’s research team estimated that, in 2006, affiliates worldwide earned $6.5 billion in bounty and commissions from a variety of sources in retail, personal finance, gaming and gambling, travel, telecom, education, publishing and forms of lead generation other than contextual ad networks such as Google AdSense.
An entire industry has grown around online affiliate marketing since the mid-1990’s and it is getting bigger all the time.
There are THOUSANDS of merchants with affiliate programs.
Basically, any company trying to do business on the web WITHOUT an affiliate program nowadays is dead in the water - and they all need affiliates to promote their products! BIG brand-name companies SONY, Dell and other BIG Brand-Names want YOU to promote their products….and of course, perhaps the most famous affiliate program of all, Amazon.com.
Best of all, TENS of THOUSANDS of affiliates make money every day and THOUSANDS of people have quit their boring day jobs to become full-time affiliate marketers - many of whom earn MILLIONS of dollars a year.
