If you’ve ever spent much time following content creators (especially on social media), you may have stumbled upon a Linktree link.

If you’re new to blogging and you’ve already published a few posts, you may be wondering – when does the traffic start coming in?

As a matter of fact, one of the most common frustrations that new bloggers face is this. They publish quite a few articles on their new sites, excited for their audience to start building. Except, after waiting weeks or even months, their blog is still a ghost town.

More so than ever before, speed matters – and your website is no exception. Both your visitors as well as Google expect you to have a website that loads quickly.

When it comes to choosing an affiliate program plugin for your WordPress website, it’s very important to make the right choice from the beginning.

Unlike so many other plugin choices, this one doesn’t only affect you.

In this article, I will be covering the top affiliate management plugs for WordPress – comparing and contrasting them against each other, to help you decide which plugin is best for your affiliate program.

This list does not include any plugins to help you with affiliate marketing itself.

Let’s get into it!
