I have to tell you that, as a newbie blogger, I have signed up and tried many different affiliate networks to monetize my blogs. Each one has its perks and downfalls- but so far, I have not found any downfalls to Escalate Network!
Escalate has many high paying offers with tons of well known companies. They are even are a great way to offer coupons.com perks to your readers (putting more money into your pocket too!). The best part is that they actually send you an email almost weekly with you affiliate code ALREADY inserted into the affiliate links! It doesn't get any easier than that to make money from your blog!
