Now, it’s your turn!
Ready to make an income from affiliate marketing? This list of affiliate programs for bloggers will give you new ideas and programs you can apply to today, so you can start promoting and increase your blogging income!
Regardless of your niche, here’s a list of affiliate programs that most bloggers can use. These sites have a conglomeration of different brands and products, so you’ll likely find something relevant to your specific industry.
In a nutshell: affiliate marketing is when you receive a commission for promoting someone else’s product, service or program. You promote that thing to your audience with a special link. When anyone who has clicked your link proceeds to buy, you get paid either a percentage or a flat rate for the sale.
When you link to an affiliate on your blog, you MUST disclose your relationship AND use a ‘nofollow’ link. I can’t iterate enough just how important this is for SEO!
According to Google, if you create sponsored content for companies, use affiliate links and review free products, you need to apply a nofollow attribute to external links (like a sponsor company’s website or affiliate links, for example). If you don’t, you can get penalized from Google and it’s insanely hard to recover.
I look at what brands I’m already using and love and fit with R+R’s natural, non-toxic mission.
Then, I contact them to see if they have affiliate programs. Sometimes you don’t have to email somebody directly, rather they’ll have a link to join their program right on their website, which makes it super easy.
Sometimes brands or products I’m not familiar with will email me a pitch, and if they’re a fit then we’ll request samples. If I truly enjoy the products/service, then we’ll join the affiliate program and start promoting.
When you’re getting started, the easiest place to start for almost all bloggers is with Amazon (scroll to the bottom of the page and click ‘Become an Affiliate’). You’ll make a cut of all purchases that someone buys within 24 hours of clicking your Amazon links. This is an easy place to start as everyone knows Amazon and you can literally make links today once you’re enrolled (though note that over the years Amazon has decreased their commissions and they are pretty small payouts these days).
We have been in affiliate partnerships with a couple high-ticket affiliate programs and love them! Amy Porterfield and her Digital Course Academy as well as Selena Soo‘s Impacting Millions are ones we’ve been a part of and love both so much. We truly cannot recommend these programs enough!
You can add your affiliate links to social media! Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter are all great platforms to promote your high ticket-affiliate programs.
Remember: for all social platforms, be sure to use #affiliate for transparency, and/or indicate the affiliate relationship with saying something like (affiliate link, thank you!) next to the link itself.
Tip for all platforms: use share threads (typically done in blogging Facebook groups) to get engagement with your posts and videos. This helps show the algorithm that people like your content and will hopefully expand your reach.
Yes! Your audience is more likely to buy a product, service or course when they can see the value it will bring into their life. The best way to convey this is through a dedicated, detailed blog post where you prominently feature ONE of your high-paying affiliate programs, all the reasons you authentically love them and how that thing is going to make someone’s life better.
