Affiliate programmes for Writers – A Review

One of the first things a newbie to any kind of affiliate programme looks for is the commission. Let’s not fool ourselves – we’re looking to earn an income therefore, the commission is of utmost importance. When your niche is content creation/writing/editing/proofreading or any discipline along those lines, it narrows the scope of affiliate programmes vs those that promote and sell retail products.

Wearing my novice hat, I trawled the internt for affiliate programmes that would match my specific niche of writing. The following is a snapshot of ten of the affiliate programmes for writers out there and based on your plans for your website and your business, these can provide some guidance as to the direction that you could take.
