Q: What companies offer the best auto related merchants in their affiliate programs? I just signed up with LinkShare and Commission Junction, but they don’t seem to have that many automotive merchants.
A: It all depends on your criteria as to what makes the best affiliate program. There are automotive merchants for various auto-related brands and products across all of the networks.
For instance, a cursory look in the Automotive section in the AffiliateTip.com Directory reveals the following examples:
- Be Free: CARFAX
- CJ: Eastwood Company
- LinkShare: DriveWerks
- Performics: AutoAnything
- Shareasale: DIYAutoparts.com
I am not aware of any one network specializing in automotive merchants, so I would suggest going to your favorite auto sites to check whether they have an affiliate program.
Often, if a company has an affiliate program, they will have a link in their footer that reads: Become an Affiliate or Affiliate Program.
