So I'm going to start playing around with the Amazon Affiliate program, Shareasale, and either Chitiika or Adsense. I hope that when my site gets huge, I can get sponsors and sell ad spac.
Relying on other companies.
Now, everywhere I go online, I hear about people who get banned from Amazon associates and adsense. I'm not sure if people are getting banned from the other affiliate companies like Rakuten, CJ, Infolinks, etc.. Are these people being stupid with their actions or are Amazon/Adsense and others extremely particular?
Being in control of your income.
I've also read quite a bit about people who make a good portion if not all of their online income selling ad space and finding sponsors. Now I know you're not fully in control of your income because you are dependent on sponsors etc...but you can choose who to use and there are endless companies/people to find.
So, what are your experiences with these methods?
Do you use both methods?
Does one work better for you?
