Affiliate marketing is the best way to make money from your blog. If you are the beginner in Affiliate marketing, then you can start from this post earn money from Affiliate Marketing. I have earned my first blogging income from Dreamhost affiliate program. I was using the Dreamhost web hosting for my blog, so I thought it would be better to join Affiliate. Earlier I have written about Bluehost affiliate program, and Now I came up with Hostgator affiliate.
Hostgator is second highest paying Affiliate program after WP Engine ($200/sign up). Hostgator will pay you maximum $125 per sign up. The interesting thing about Hostgator affiliate program is that you will get more commission if you send more sign up per month.
So first we will start with How to join Hostgator Affiliate program?
Hostgator Affiliate Commission
Hostgator is very smart about the commission. They have implemented a unique technique(more sign up per month more commission for single sign up) for the sign-up rewards.
If you send 1-5 sign ups, then you will get $50 each sign ups if you send 6-10 sign ups then you will get $75 for each sign ups and so on. The amount of commission you get from the Hostgator affiliate is directly proportional to a number of sign-up you received per month.
If you look at the above calculation, you will understand that more you send referral more you will get rewarded by Hostgator. When you send them one sign up, then they check that is its valid entry or not then only you get paid so beware of the fraud.

You will get lots of stuff to promote you via email or on your blog from the Hostgator team. There are almost all types of banners available for promotion. You can pick up any banner suitable for your blog size space and promote it. Just scroll down from your dashboard and check the Ads section
