This is a directory of Affiliate Marketing and Related Forums and Communities. An A-Z list that I’ll be updating regularly.
The majority of forums are free to join, however, I included paid options as well. In some cases, the paid communities have free membership options or trials.
There are forums exclusively for discussions, but there are forums that are part of communities or platforms. Other forums offer tools, resources, guides, case studies, tips. And there are platforms to help you build an affiliate marketing or online business from scratch offering exclusive education, web builders, web hosting services, management and monitoring tools, or you can even purchase domain names.
