Programs for Bloggers to Join Today!
Affiliate marketing can come in a number of different forms. Naturally, you may find affiliate links throughout this post and website. I only promote products, courses and services that I truly believe in. If you purchase through one of my links, I may receive a commission, at no extra cost to you of course! And THAT, is what affiliate marketing is.
As mentioned, you can be an affiliate for a product, service or even a course. A product may be a digital product, like an ebook or a physical product, like a real book.
Some products and services manage their own affiliate programs and other are part of an affiliate network, like Share-A-Sale.
Often, if you’ve purchased an online course or ebook, that product may have an affiliate program. Say you purchase a course and you love it! You can then tell others about it and earn a commission if and when people decide to purchase after clicking on your link.
Affiliate Programs for Bloggers
Share-A-Sale – Thousands of products and companies that you can represent. Just join programs that are suitable to your blog.
AWIN, Commission Junction, Rafkuten and Brand Cycle are some others that you can check out.
Check the bottom of the website for a product/company you love. If they have an affiliate program there should be a link to it there.
The Digital Gangsta!
Sounds intimidating? Well it isn’t. Sure, starting an online business may be intimidating, but much of the anxiety and intimidation can be removed if you enrol in The Digital Gangsta. Julie Stoian provides an immense amount of value to her students and once enrolled, you can join the affiliate program. This is hands down, my most lucrative affiliate program. Probably because the course is so awesome!
Here’s a free webinar to learn Julie’s inside secrets for building online businesses.

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing
This course, appropriately called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing, is where I learned much of what I know now about affiliate marketing. Of course, after taking the course, many people want to share it with other bloggers and online entrepreneurs, so they join the affiliate program. You do need to have purchased the course, in order to join the affiliate program. Makes sense right?
Ultimate Bundles is an affiliate marketing program for bloggers, all about promoting bundles of ebooks surrounding certain topics. They have different topics, so the program can be a fit for different niches. For example, they have an Ultimate Blogger’s Toolkit Bundle and an Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. Each bundle contains a collection of ebooks all sold for one low price, instead of the individual prices.
This ebook by Carly Campbell of Mommy on Purpose teaches a unique method for manual pinning that has helped me to learn more about Pinterest and significantly increase my Pinterest views. Pinterest and affiliate marketing go hand in hand. Since I loved the book and found it helpful I signed up as an affiliate. Check out Pinteresting Strategies here.
Speaking of Pinterest, meet your new best friend, Tailwind! Tailwind is a scheduling tool for Pinterest and let me tell you, it rocked my world! I heard of it, looked into a little, but didn’t think much of it. I finally gave in and tried it, because you can TRY if for FREE! My traffic increased significantly. I was sitting around 12k Pinterest views per month. After using Tailwind, my Pinterest traffic skyrocketed to 150k views per month! Awesome! It’s a huge time saver and is super easy to use.
Themes and Hosting
How to start a Blog
The two things you need to start a blog! A host for your website and a theme!
As a blogger, digital marketer or website designer, you can also join the affiliate programs for various theme and hosting companies. Just scroll to the bottom of their website to see if they have an “affiliates” link or search for it. For example, I use DIVI by Elegant Themes, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It is a functional, intuitive and easy to use website builder. Learn more about Divi here.
It seems like all hosting companies have affiliate programs. So if you have a website host that you love, join their affiliate program. I always recommend Host Papa and Bluehost. Joining a hosting company affiliate program is usually a great place to start for bloggers!
Funnels, Funnels, Funnels!
You know when you sign up for a free PDF of [Insert Amazing Offer], then you opt-in (provide your email address), then you receive your PDF (sometimes awesome, sometimes not), then you start receiving marketing emails from the website you subscribed to. Often these emails may try to further upsell you on some course or product. THAT, my friend, is a Sales Funnel. And they are all the rage right now.
ClickFunnels is a website/funnel builder, which helps you to build and design landing pages and sales pages and their subsequent sales funnels – for your own business, product or service, or your client’s business. They have pretty much been given the title of fastest growing software company in the world. ClickFunnels also has a very lucrative affiliate program – that you can join without having a ClickFunnels subscription! They provide ample training and resources to help you learn how to promote ClickFunnels. Training which is invaluable in generating your knowledge of affiliate marketing.
