Top 5 Affiliate Marketing Books

Posted on17 CommentsCategoriesGeneral Discussion, Online Marketing

Nearly everyone knows that some 25% of all online sales, and for many book titles 50% or more of their sales [source] happen on Amazon also ranks books by sales, and I thought it’d be interesting to go to the e-tail giant’s website, and see what are the top five books on affiliate marketing. If we go there, choose “Book” as category, and search for “affiliate marketing”:

…the query yields the following list:

  1. Affiliate Program Management: An Hour a Day by Evgenii Prussakov (Apr 12, 2011)
  2. The Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing on the Web: How to Use and Profit from Affiliate Marketing Programs by Bruce C. Brown (Apr 20, 2008)
  3. A Practical Guide to Affiliate Marketing: Quick Reference for Affiliate Managers & Merchants by Evgenii Prussakov (May 1, 2007)
  4. Make a Fortune Promoting Other People’s Stuff Online: How Affiliate Marketing Can Make You Rich by Rosalind Gardner (Jun 29, 2007)
  5. Affiliate Programs: How to Make Money Online with Other People’s Products by Joel Comm (Sep 29, 2008)

Here’s a screenshot of the top 3 too:

Needless to underscore how happy I am to see that out of the top 3 books on the list, two are mine. It also seems that someone needs to write a more updated book for affiliates.

  1. Geno – I’m just now reading your book — it’s unbelievably helpful. The way I look at it, you deserve to be on top of the list! I come from the offline side of the house and will be taking over our fledgling affiliate program next week – and your book has been a godsend! Thanks so much!

    1. Nancy, which of the two are you reading?

      Either way, I’m glad my work is of help to you. If, in return, you want to leave an Amazon review of the book, I would highly appreciate it.

      1. I’m reading (well, read, now) Affiliate Program Management: An Hour a Day. As for the review, done, and done! Thanks, Geno!

  2. Congrats on your success Geno!

    I found your “Practical Guide” very helpful when I was first getting my feet wet in the Affiliate Marketing landscape. Just finished the other book I was reading and now I am ready to dive into your Affiliate Program Management in an Hour a Day. I will be sure to review it when I am finished!

  3. Geno,

    I’m just getting started in the field of affiliate marketing, and I have been browsing Amazon (as well as other places) in search of a solid and contemporary book that captures the critical elements of launching an affiliate business.

    What would you recommend?

  4. Yes you are absolutely right someone does need to write a more updated book on affiliate marketing. Really marketing in general.

    So how bout it ?

    You going to give it another go.

    Well thanks for the list and I’ll be looking for your latest marketing book to release.
