Support: Affiliate networks sometimes might give us some confusion regarding getting the code of banners or something. That's why, it is important to check out the support of an affiliate network before joining.

Payment terms and methods: All affiliate networks never use the same payment terms and methods. Some uses Net-20 and some use Net-30 payment terms. Some networks use PayPal as payment method and some use Cheque as their payment method. That's why, it is really a must checking out payment methods and terms is a must.

Cuelinks monetize your external links with related products which have your affiliate ID and if anyone purchases the product through the page, you will get paid.

Cuelinks is an Indian based network and you cannot expect International partners in this network. So, I recommend this network for Indian publishers.


How to make money with Cuelinks ?



There are many ways to make money with Cuelinks. Some of them include :


Direct affiliate links : Keep in mind, If you are approved for Cuelinks, you will be automatically approved for over 600 merchants, So no need of checking every programme.


1. Go to your dashboard and click on Campaign explorer


2. Search for the Brand or shopping site you need and you trust. For example, If you are writing a review about Redmi 4A mobile which is exclusively launched by Amazon, You need to search for Amazon.

3. Click on the icon of the brand. A new tab will be opened.


4. You can see paste URL box below the details of the programme. Paste the URL of the product. ( If you want an affiliate link of Amazon Redmi 4A, you need to go to amazon.com, Search for Redmi 4A and copy the link and paste in Cuelinks box )



5. Cuelinks will give you a URL which contains your affiliate link and the product link.

6. Add the link in your review. If anyone clicks on it, He/She will be redirected to the product page ( Ex: Redmi 4A on Amazon ) . If they make a sale, you will get paid according to the terms of the programme


Widgets ( Banners ) : Banner ads are so common, But it isn't wit Cuelinks. Cuelinks offer two types of widgets :



1. Deal widget

2. Coupon widget

For example, If your blog is about Recharge plans, You can select Recharge category with coupon widget and place it in the sidebar of your blog. It will show coupons related to the recharge plans. If anyone clicks on the widget, He will be redirected to the official webpage of the sim provider.

For example, If your visitor is an Airtel user, He clicked on the Airtel coupon Ad, He will be redirected to the Airtel official website and If he recharge online, You will get paid.


You can place Widgets in the sidebar of your blog to make more sales.


Cuewords : The most important thing in this Cuelinks review

Cuewords works like an in-text ad network. This means, it will automatically convert words into Hyperlinks with your affiliate ID.

To add Cuewords to your blog : 

1. Go to your Cuelinks dashboard



2. There you can see Install Javascript.

3. Click on it


4. You will get a code ( Javascript code ).

5. Add the javascript code to your blog. I recommend you to place it at the end of your blog ( Footer ).

6. Now Again, Go to your Cuelinks dashboard.



7. Click on Activate now on Cuewords.

8. Now, Some of your links in the blog post will be automatically turned into affiliate links.



Cuelinks Review




Approval




Are you tired of waiting for approval ?


Generally, Many ad networks takes so much time to approve applications of publishers.

But, with Cuelinks, you don't need to wait for ages to get an approval. They approve all applications within 1-2 Business days. This is really an amazing thing in this Cuelinks review about their approvals.

All you need to do is signup for Cuelinks using this signup page. They will send you a verification E-mail, Verify your E-mail using the link and wait for 1 day to get approval.

Cuelinks don't have any traffic requirements. They won't reject any application unless your website deals with illegal activities.



Support




Cuelinks offers very quick support for their publishers. If you got any problem, you can directly contact them through your dashboard from the Support tab. They will respond as fast as they can and help you out.


Minimum payout



The minimum payout of Cuelinks is only RS.500 and they only pay via direct bank transfer. They won't pay via Paypal. So this is a major disadvantage for them. But it is an Indian based network. I think many Indian based small bloggers don't have a Paypal account. So it is better for them.

Referral program




Cuelinks offer a referral program for their publishers. If you refer any publisher, you can take 25% of your referral for 3 months.

For example, If the person you referred earned RS.1000, you will get RS.250 from his earnings.

Bluehost VS Hostgator Affiliate Program : Which One Is Good ?

Posted by Samba Siva
Bluehost vs Hostgator Affiliate program, These are the two best affiliate programs in the industry. A long time rivalry is going on between these two hosting affiliate programs.

In this blog post, we compare the two best affiliate programs. You will learn both advantages and disadvantages of two programs.

Webhosting affiliate programs act as one of the best and high paying Adsense alternative for small bloggers. We can make a huge amount of money with affiliate programs. Affiliate programs use CPS ( Cost Per Sale ) to pay for its affiliates. That means you can't get paid for views or Clicks.

 Let's do a simple math on comparing Adsense and Affiliate Marketing :
       
                                 Affiliate marketing

You got 10 clicks with Affiliate Marketing a day. You'll make $0. I mean you'll have to go empty handed.

                                   Adsense

You got 10 clicks a day on Adsense ads. If the CPC is $1, You will make $10 per day. So, if you are getting more clicks, Adsense is best for you.

                                 Otherwise :

You got 1 sale a day with affiliate marketing. The program offers you $65 per sale and you made $65 in a day.

With Adsense, You got one sale through your ad. But you cannot make anything, All you get is the CPC for one click.

That's why, if you use some tricks and have some experience, you can make huge amount of money.

According to me, you learned the differences between Adsense and affiliate Marketing. Now it is the time to check out the two best affiliate programs of the industry. Let's see our comparison of Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program and we will conclude that which one you must join.

Bluehost vs Hostgator Affiliate program







Signup and approval



Both Hostgator and Bluehost gives you a free signup and you don't need to pay anything to join these affiliate programs.

Hostgator affiliate program is based on Impact Radius. This takes 24-48 hours to get an approval from Hostgator Affiliate Program. Bluehost affiliate program also takes some time to approve your blog.

Tax Forms




Both Hostgator and Bluehost needs to submit a tax form before getting payout to your paypal account.

Hostgator asks you to submit your PAN card while signing up and this is one of the huge disadvantage for minors like me. That's why, we never gave it a try.

Bluehost never asks you for PAN or other forms while signing up. But after you get an approval from their affiliate program, you must submit your tax information to them. If you don't submit tax information, You won't get paid. Filling up Tax information is hard for beginners.

Here Harsh Agarwal from ShoutMeLoud written a tutorial about filling Bluehost affiliate tax form. You can read it and fill the form.


Cost per Referral



When it comes to cost, Both Bluehost and Hostgator have different terms. Here is the information about Cost per Referral :

Bluehost pays you $65 per referral and if you keep increasing the sales per month to 15-20, you will get $120 per sale easily. According to me, this is the highest rate of the webhosting affiliate programs.


Hostgator cost would be like :

09- $75 ( Refer 9 people a month and get $75 per sale )

11- $100 ( Refer 11 people a month and get $100 per sale )

21- $125 ( Refer 21 people a month and make a huge amount of $125 per sale )

In Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program, When it comes to Cost per sale, Bluehost is the winner. Bluehost pays you an exact rate of $65per referral and more your refer more you will make.

Special Promotion coupons



Both Bluehost and Hostgator gives you access to special discounts. For example, in the month of January, They gives you a Republic sale, It may give 20% off on webhosting. Both Hostgator and Bluehost send you a reminder through Mail and you can attract more referrals by showing Discounts through your affiliate links.


Custom coupons   :

If you want a custom coupon, Means more discount giving coupon, You need to contact Bluehost Or Hostgator and they will send you the coupon, if you are eligible to their respective terms and conditions.

Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program on Coupons, Both of them are winners.



Payouts



The minimum Payout of Bluehost is $100 and you can withdraw your payments through Paypal, Bank wire etc.

The minimum payout of Hostgator is $100 and get paid via Paypal and Bank transfer etc.

So, in Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program, Both of them are winners, when it comes to Payouts.


Banners



Both Bluehost and Hostgator offers banners which contains your affiliate link and helps you to make more sales.

In Bluehost vs Hostgator Affiliate Program of Banners, Bluehost is the winner. Bluehost offers banners in different sizes. All the banners comes with blue colour, which is considered the most amazing and attractive colour. This is the best advantage for Bluehost.

Hostgator provides banners. They are also amazing. But they aren't good when they are compared to Bluehost affiliate banners.

Conclusion



Now, Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program comparison is ended. It is the time to check out " which one is better ? " . According to me, go on with Bluehost affiliate program. I recommend you to join Bluehost affiliate program and make lot's of money.

Share this post and let your friends know " Bluehost vs Hostgator Affiliate Program " and let them decide which one to go
