  1. What do you think of ShareASale? I personally like them. They don’t take money away from you if you are in a dry sales slump, for example, like Clickbank or CommissionJunction.

    Amazon is great, except that the commissions are so low. But you don’t get the selectivity of Commission Junction. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been rejected there!

    Anyhow, good information to help all of us IMers out there. Thanks.
