To start affiliate marketing, you have to register in one or some affiliate networks or affiliate programs.
Affiliate Programs is also known as an associate program that deals between advertiser and publisher.
The advertiser is a person or a company who offer their product to be marketed by the affiliate marketer and give the marketer affiliate commission on every sale.
A publisher is an individual or even a group who sell the advertiser’s products and gain a commission in every sale.
The affiliate program which is managed by the owner of the product itself it called in-house affiliate program. And for those (the producer) who don’t want to manage their affiliate they register as an advertiser in the affiliate network.

But when you once be accepted you can choose one or more from hundreds even thousands of affiliate programs.

Here I will mention some the best affiliate Network base on the type
The Best CPA Affiliate Network 2016
The first CPA affiliate in 2015, Maxbounty started at 2004, they treated every publisher with respect. Maxbounty has lot of CPA, CPL, Mobile download and PPCall affiliate programs but not as much as peerfly. But they have done something better than Peerfly for 2015.
It was the first CPA affiliate network before it beat down by the younger CPA Affiliate Network Maxbounty, it has more CPA, CPL, and CPS affiliate programs than Maxbounty. But I think, this year they will do something better, though.

I suggest that you choose the affiliate program that appropriates to what you use and what have known most, so you can write about the product briefly and from your experiences, because people would be psychologically suggested to buy the product by your experience and people love hearing and reading other experience.
