    I saw some affiliate programs for hotels and wanted to know if these are good or not. They have some good sales amounts so the earnings look very good but I think the big hotel sites might get most of the business.

    Are hotel affiliate programs good or should I just avoid them and find something else? I already got approved by two but I don't know if they are worth my time.

    If you have the right traffic coming to your site or have a mailing list that will work well for travel then I say go for it. It's always good to try other things until you find what you are best at.

    I don't know if I have the right traffic but I do not think I have a mailing list that is good for it. I might try to put some advertisements on my blog and see what happens.

    People travel more these days then in years past so they are going to need hotel rooms much of the time so I say try it out! If you can get the offers marketed to the right people then you may have something special there.

    I have looked and there is a lot of potential to make a good income from hotel affiliate programs but you just have to be able to find the right people. If you maybe have a travel blog or an email list for that use then you may be able to make some good commissions.

    Hotel affiliate programs can be good earning affiliate products but you usually have to have the right email list or website that is getting the right traffic.

    Since you have already been approved then I say you might as well give it a shot and see what you can do.

    Maybe you can join some groups on Facebook that have people that might be interested. Just a thought.

    Lots of people travel and hotels are being built everywhere it seems so it might be a good idea if you can get people to buy, make reservations or whatever they are supposed to do for you to earn money from them.

    That's going to be the trick, getting them to use your affiliate ads, code or whatever. There's definitely money to be made there if he can get people to go through him.

    If you can get into some groups on the social media websites that are travel related or maybe business related then you might be able to make some money with these since people are going to need somewhere to stay when they travel.

    Yes that is what I have to find out how to do. I am going to try them I think and see if the earnings are good.

    I was thinking about it and you might check with the terms of the programs because pay per click advertising might work well for these types of offers.

    I would prefer to use free marketing methods at first because this is something I do not know about but if paid will work and make a profit then I can do that. Thanks

    If you are wanting free marketing methods then the social media website will probably be the best option.

    Some other members said that maybe Facebook groups will be good for that so I will be checking all kinds of social media options.

    Are you talking about the affiliate programs for one single company chain of hotels or just hotels in general with many different company offerings? If the programs are for just one hotel company then it might be hard to get a lot of sales because single hotel companies do not have locations everywhere that people travel.

    If you have a good way to market these then they can be good earners but you usually have to have the right audience to market them to.

    If you have an email list that has some target audience members or if you can get into the right Facebook groups then you might be successful but just sending offers for hotel rooms probably won't get you much success.

    It's going to come down to getting people that travel either for business or work to see your offers most likely. ;)

    I was just recently looking at these types of affiliate programs. Many seem to have high earnings potential so if you can get people to buy through you then you can probably get very good earning results.
