Cate Ferguson's insight:

This is little list of possible options for quality affiliate programs to promote  - you will most likely discover that the link are affiliate linke (that's what it's for after all) - so if you don't want someone to receive a commission just type the URL right into your browser.  

 

However... effort has been made to bring you this information so a little pay it forward never goes astray.  As always, check the details of each program carefully, ensure it is real, fair and fits with your ethics and business goals.
