NEW FAST-GROWING (Literally) NICHE to Promote - Medical Cannabis
Cannabis products are now the fastest growing online industry. But make sure this niche doesn't clash with your website content. It works well with our progressive site, AstroStar.com, but probably would be a negative for more conservative websites. Now is the time to get on the ground floor of this lucrative opportunity to promote medical marijuana products.
An affiliate program that pays 10% - 20% commission and pays out at $100. 30 day cookies. You'd be promoting high potency CBD products: Vape Juice, Gummies, CBD Oil, Edibles, and Pain Relief. Earn 5% on affiliate referrals.
Our Favorite Affiliate Programs

In most cases, we earn referral revenue if you sign up through our links on this page.
Initially, I found the Vibes Up booth at a local Healing Faire in Sacramento and purchased a bunch of unique goodies for myself. (VibesUp received the 2008 Visionary Award.) Then, along came their online shop for affiliates AND sub affiliates, so I signed up right away. VibesUp is a perfect niche for any metaphysical or holistic health website.
Vibrational therapy products, made with crystals and essential oils, are becoming increasing popular and are doing well on metaphysical sites such as ours.
I have met Kaitlyn Keyt, the owner and creator of VibesUp.com and was impressed with her own high frequency and gentle ways. She reminds me of a female Tesla with her innovative and progressive healing products to help people, animals, plants, and even water.
I use and wear many of her healing items. As I write this, I have a big healing mat on the back of my chair working on my spinal discs.
I signed up for the VibesUp.com affiliate bandwagon as soon as it was available and have been advertising Kaitlyn's entire line of products at AstroStar.com since May 2009. They are beautiful and healing, a joy for me to promote.
BTW, Commission is 10% as an affiliate and sub-affiliate.

OTHER RECOMMENDED AFFILIATE PROGRAMS
If you no longer see a program that was once here, it means we are no longer using it or phasing it out because it's just not working for us.
Natural News Store
I've been a subscriber to their "Natural News" for a few years. They are a "science-based natural health advocacy organization led by activist-turned-scientist Mike Adams, the Health Ranger." I love promoting their products that help our bodies fight the environmental toxins we're exposed to these days.
If you'd like to sell NaturalNews.com products on your site, too, this link takes you right to the affiliate sign-up form. They hand-pick affiliates for the NaturalNews.com store, so it might take a week to hear if you've been accepted. Sign up here.
A long-standing favorite for banners and text ads on the Lucky Horoscopes pages. They always pay on time and are a reliable source of revenue. Your web visitors will enjoy an easy and trustworthy source to buy lotto tickets. Multi-tier revenue for referrals. Sign Up Here.
For years, Linkshare was on my Not Recommended list, even though I used them reluctantly to advertise Hay House, Sierra Club, Gaia, Alibris, and some other favorites I couldn't part with. We've used Linkshare since 1997. Since early 2006, I realized they were doing much better on all fronts - reporting, linking accuracy, and ease of linking. Not once did I have to track down a glitch or code mistake as I had in the past. I'm grateful for their improvements.
LinkShare Referral Banner
We've used this program successfully since AstroStar first went online in 1997. Their ads have mostly been on our Romantic Realms pages which aren't as high volume as the rest of the site. But FriendFinder has paid consistently and has done well through the years. They have all those terrific niche sites like Italian, Asian, Jewish, Outpersonals, Bondage, Amigos, Adult, German, Indian, French, Big Church, etc.
My Other Favorite Webmaster Resources
Big Kudos to MailerLite.com! - March 2017
MailerLite.com is what I've been waiting for! - This is my favorite company for our newsletter --- Finally!!!
It's been a long, arduous journey to find them. For those who have been getting the AstroStar newsletter these past 20 years, you know the trials we've gone through:
Yahoo Groups was fine for the first decade but often got hacked and was buggy.
Then I tried MailChimp - they're now quite pricey and notorious for blocking newsletters if you have one of their spam "keywords" in your newsletter. (You might never know why you got banned either - and they ban often without warning).
Then I tried Mail-List PHP for a few months. It's free on some server hosts but is not for the faint of heart to figure out. Oh, and it's easily hackable, which happened 3 months into using it. Neither my hosting company nor I could figure out how to get it running again. Not only is Mail List PHP NOT user friendly, it couldn't/wouldn't send the newsletter to my Gmail subscribers. Frustrations again. Back to searching for the perfect one.
Send in Blue was confusing. I couldn't figure out their import address interface for starters. So much for that one...somewhere is the perfect newsletter service for me...
And then Eureka! I found it - MailerLite, my new beloved newsletter service. The best things in life sometimes are worth waiting for! I'm so grateful and so relieved.
In a nutshell, here's what I love about MailerLite:It's SO user friendly. Why couldn't the others get on board with something like this???
It's amazingly simple but powerful. Play around with it. You'll be hooked like I was.
They're adding features all the time. (They obviously care about their product and customers)
It's free for the first 1000 subscribers. I knew that wouldn't apply to me. I have 1900+ subscribers, but after seeing how great MailerLite is, I signed up for $84 for one year which is a super good deal (compared to the others).
A nice bonus for all is that if you share MailerLite with others, you and they will get a $20 credit when they sign up. If they end up upgrading as I did, you'll get a $20 credit, too. Give $20, Get $20. I'd recommend them anyway!
So far, I haven't found anything I don't like about them.
This my new favorite for domain registration. It's so much easier to use than many other registrars out there. It's a clean interface without a lot of in-your-face advertising to buy what you don't want. They always have a deal with promo codes that are easy to find with a simple Google search. Recently, I renewed with a promo code that dropped the price from $12.99 to $9.99. Not only that, refer a friend and get $5.00 in Bearglecoins if they spend $10.00.
