Actually, you probably wouldn't want to join all same programs. Many of these affiliate links lead to sites and products that you wouldn't want to buy yourself. Do you want to risk your business reputation by offering them to your site's visitors?
Don't forget that same offer is made to thousands of people every day, each of them looking for same magic bullet - quick and easy business opportunity. That means that there are copies of 'your' site all over web, and more coming online everyday. So much for being unique.
Not having a niche has another disadvantage. How many surfers will find your flea market affiliate link site when they are searching for 'handheld computer' or 'treadmills'? Approximately none. Niche sites get ranked by search engines while flea markets don't get found.
All in all, these 'opportunities' are a waste of time and money, and benefit only scheme's originator.
Real affiliate marketing opportunities abound, and many have excellent potential for earning serious income. Thousands of affiliate marketers enjoy very large incomes by promoting merchant programs and products.
While they avoid hassles of carrying inventory, order processing and customer service - super affiliates do not avoid effort.
They know that success comes from investing time, effort and forging of one's own path.
In other words, do work, reap rewards.
