I dove into the idea of starting affiliate marketing a few years ago, but I kind of got intimidated and chickened out. However, I recently came across an ad for Home Depot and how they have a fairly decent affiliate marketing program. When I was looking into affiliate marketing before, I was mainly looking into small online businesses that I had found on review sites...But is it better to start off with larger organizations? I have to admit that I would feel better going with a company that is well-known, but I wouldn't be surprised if their program did not have as high of a payout as some smaller business do. Their programs may be more well-known, so they probably have the ability to pay less. What is your experience in choosing small companies versus larger and more well-known ones? Which should I start with? Thanks in advanced.
