Don’t have a blog to promote affiliate programs? >> Get Started HERE!
One of the BEST things about the Pajama Affiliates courses is that they are not limited to one affiliate program. A lot of our members promote various affiliate programs that fit their blog niche. Because every niche is different, the programs and products promoted will vary a lot.
You can promote physical products and digital products on your blog through different affiliate programs.
Digital products would be ebooks, videos, digital downloads and anything that isn’t going to be sent physically in the mail. A lot of people buy digital products online, your website hosting is a digital product, our blogging program is a digital product. The online tools that you’re using right now to work your blog probably have an affiliate program.
Physical products would be anything they’re going to receive physically in person. There are endless physical products to promote though retailers like Amazon, Etsy, WayFair, Zulily and more.
ClickBank has Digital Products to Promote on a Blog
I’ve been doing affiliate marketing since 2009 and I started out in the dating and relationship niche. I would promote digital products through Clickbank.
I’ve made in excess of ten-thousand dollars a month promoting ClickBank digital products in my niche. It’s by far my favorite affiliate programs to promote on my blog.
Clickbank is a marketplace specializing in eProducts; meaning, eBooks, audio, videos and things that can be downloaded digitally or viewed online for a price.
ClickBank is my most profitable affiliate program that I’m apart of because I’m comfortable promoting digital products in my niche. My audience isn’t looking for a physical product like a blender or digital camera from me in my niche.
I learned a lot from promoting digital products on Clickbank since I first started blogging. I’ve got digital products of my own that I have created and now promote them on my own blogs! It all started with what I learned from ClickBank.
Amazon has Physical Products to Promote on a Blog
One of our coaches and mentors in the Pajama Affiliates Facebook group is mostly promoting physical products through Amazon Associates. Amazon is one of the most powerful shopping platforms in the world and they have an affiliate program that converts beautifully.
One of the best things about promoting Amazons affiliate program is that you get credit for anything they buy on Amazon. Even if you sent them to view a book and they buy a toaster, you will get credit! Where else can your reader buy books, toasters, dog treats and swimsuits online?
Another powerful feature of the Amazon marketplace is that it’s a household name that people trust. A lot of people have “Amazon Prime” and they will receive free shipping when they buy from Amazon. It’s by far one of the best affiliate programs to promote for bloggers who have physical products in their blog posts that they can link too. Recipe bloggers for example can link to the kitchen tools they use and craft bloggers can link to supplies they need. The possibilities are so so big with Amazons affiliate program.
One thing about Amazon is that you need to make sure that you can promote them in your state. There are a few states that cannot use the Amazon Affiliate program, it’s a bummer for sure, but there are other affiliate programs so don’t fret too much if you find out your state is not allowed.
How Do I Find the Best Affiliate Programs to Promote on My Blog?
One way to find out if there’s an affiliate program available for a company is to go to Google and type the “name of the company+affiliate program.”
- brand + affiliate program (i.e. Ulta Beauty affiliate program)
- online store name + affiliate program (i.e. Etsy affiliate program)
- store name + affiliate program (i.e. Home Depot affiliate Pprogram)
- product type + affiliate program (i.e. organic dog food affiliate program)
A lot of well known companies and retailers have affiliate programs of their own. Who wouldn’t want free sales people pushing their products?
