Many affiliate programs are run through affiliate management companies. The main ones I use are listed below.

To distribute your blog feed + send custom newsletters, I recommend using MailChimp, AWeber or FeedBlitz.
NAMS has been the single greatest investment I have made in learning about affiliates and treating blogging as a business – because if you make money, it is a business.
