This is a new post from Author1 submitted via the WP Admin Panel. Jeff Bezos didn’t get to be the world’s richest man by writing a lot of checks, and one recent way to keep Amazon’s profits healthy has been to cut its affiliate commissions scheme. Amazon used its popular affiliate program to spur additional growth, getting reviewers and publishing sites – including us here at Tech.co – to link to Amazon in exchange for a small payout whenever a reader bought something by following that link. The impact? A host of bloggers and publishers are seeing their revenues massively dented, from tiny BBQ grill review sites to the hugest media organizations around. Suddenly, every other affiliate program and network out there is looking more attractive. In fact, multiple affiliate sites I spoke to for this article have seen their partners or revenues nearly double within just a few months. Here are some of the top options available in 2020 to anyone who wants to earn a living or a side hustle by recommending products online.

Just about the only downside to this option is that it’s limited to books and books alone. With Amazon’s affiliate scheme, anyone who clicks through an affiliate link to a product can generate affiliate commissions for anything they buy within a certain timeframe, not just that particular product. As a result, an affiliate link to a book could turn into a hefty commission on a flatscreen TV – something that’ll never happen with a Bookshop link.

Narrativ isn’t for everyone. Its aim is to serve as the “largest database of unbiased product recommendations on the open web,” with an emphasis on “unbiased.” They vet their partners for true expertise. If you operate a small blog or review site that has been using Amazon’s affiliate links, you may not have the option to switch to Narrativ. Still, Narrativ’s marketplace has doubled in size over the last month, Chen revealed, so there’s clearly a swath of viable and interested publishers out there. If you’re one of them, Narrativ is an attractive Amazon alternative.
