AuthorityHacker is a hugely popular website. As proven by their Alexa traffic rank of less than 10,000. They also inform on their website to have over 10,000 happy customers.

Their main product is AuthorityHacker Pro is an online training course for making money online with your own websites. They’ve got a strong focus on SEO.

This product is only available for promotion at its launches. These launches happen a few times per year.

They also sell a product called The Authority Site System which can be promoted year-round. This is “A complete step-by-step training course for building highly profitable authority sites from the ground up.”

I like that they offer the possibility for recurring revenue by paying affiliates for any other products their referrals purchase in the future as well.

I am not sure how much they pay in commission for each of these online courses other than what they state on their website which is that you can earn up to $990 per sale.

Ps. They also have a weekly podcast. Always packed with lots of great tips and useful news for us affiliate marketers. I would suggest checking it out if you’re trying to make money online with your own websites and affiliate programs. It is called The Authority Hacker Podcast.

Network offers

The network is especially big with fashion clothing & accessories stores and interior and health-related programs. They also feature A LOT of programs for other categories.

It can be a bit hard to find the good offers to promote though as they have a lot of really low quality offers also, unfortunately, and those often appear at the top of the lists. This is a pretty big drawback to me.

You get access to a big database of coupons and deals as well as gift cards to attract clicks and customers to many of the offers.

Many of the programs have great average PPC values. You can easily see the average PPC of each program as well as how much reversal (for instance canceled orders) you can expect from each offer.
