THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO

best affiliate programs, make money online, affiliate marketing, how to monetize a blog, ways to make moneyOver the last few months, I received many emails and comments from my readers asking about what affiliate programs do I use to make money from my blog.

In my monthly income reports, I explain where the money comes from. However, I’ve never shared the part about the affiliate programs I use, and that’s why today I feel like sharing it with you.

In this post, I share the affiliate programs that allow me to make over $1,000 from affiliate marketing every single month. Do you want to know more? Check my list with my top 10 best performing affiliate programs.

FlexOffers

FlexOffers provides a partnership between publishers and companies to allow publishers the ability to find and join affiliate programs.

This is one of my favourite affiliate programs. Why? FlexOffers has thousands of affiliate programs grouped into categories and subcategories. They have 5,000+ companies you can promote their products.

For most of the companies, there is no approval process. And if you don’t live in the US (like me) you can also get paid via Paypal.

You can see below a screenshot I took recently from my FlexOffers dashboard.

Requirements: You can join here for free. You need to have a website.

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing

This course taught me everything I know about affiliate marketing. After taking the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course I started promoting it because it’s an amazing resource for anybody who wants to make real money.

I was thrilled when I realised how many sales I was getting from this course. Michelle (the creator of the course) pays you a 40% of the total sale. Yes, a 40%! The only downside is that you need to buy the course to become an affiliate. But, trust me, it’s worth every single penny. And, in my case, it paid for itself in less than a month.

Below, you’ll find a screenshot of some of my most recent sales.

Requirements: You need to purchase the course in order to promote it.

Bluehost

Bluehost is a hosting company which is great to start a blog (that’s how I started my blog!). They pay $65 for each referral you get.

Everybody knows how much I love blogging. That’s why I believe everybody should try blogging at least once in their lives. I created a tutorial on how to start a blog step by step, and everytime somebody starts a blog using my tutorial, I get paid $65 by Bluehost. Isn’t it great? While I’m helping people set up their own blogs, I also get paid for it. It’s a win-win!

Requirements: You can join here for free.

Swagbucks

There are two ways to join this affiliate program. The first one is by going directly to their website and signing up (that’s the easy way) or applying through FlexOffers.

If you want to join it faster, I recommend using the first way. This program pays $3.00 per lead, which is awesome!

Requirements: You can join here for free.

Shareasale

Similar to FlexOffers, ShareASale provides a partnership between publishers and companies to allow publishers the ability to find and join affiliate programs.

Submitting the application takes only around 5 minutes. Once applied, the ShareASale team needs to review it and according to their website it takes 1 to 3 days until you receive the email notification upon approval, however, in my case, it took less than 24 hours.

Here is a screenshot of some of my earnings over the last few months.

Pinteresting Strategies

This is one of my most recent affiliate programs. And I love it!

Pinteresting Strategies is a course written by Carly that teaches you about how to get traffic from Pinterest (using manual pinning). It’s a must-have course and that’s why I promote it on my blog.

Carly pays a 40% of each course you sell. The affiliate program is managed through Sendowl. The only downside is that you need to buy the course to get your affiliate link.

Below is a screenshot of my earnings in only a couple of months.

Requirements: You need to purchase the course in order to promote it.

IGain

This affiliate network is focused on market research, that is survey and cashback sites. They have dozens of affiliates for survey sites and all in one platform.

If your blog is about personal finance, then you need to join iGain. This is one of my new favourite affiliate networks.

Here is a screenshot of my iGain dashboard.

Requirements: You can join here for free.

Tailwind

Tailwind is the tool I use to schedule my pins on Pinterest. It’s so easy to use and it’s one of the key points of my success with Pinterest.

To join the affiliate program you can do it through ShareASale or directly from the Tailwind site (you don’t need to pay anything to join). They both pay a 15% of the sale price, but the second one is easier to join as you don’t need to be accepted to ShareASale beforehand.

Over the last year, bloggers are realising the potential of Pinterest to get traffic, and Tailwind is a great service to promote.

ConvertKit

As a ConvertKit affiliate, you’ll earn a 30% commission each month from everyone you refer. This is recurrent money. That means is somebody you refer is paying 99$/month, you’ll earn $30. Every month.

If you don’t know what ConvertKit is, I recommend you to read this article. In a few words, ConvertKit is an email marketing service to send emails to your subscribers.

Every blogger knows that “the money is in the list”, and you have a chance to promote ConverKit (which in my belief is the best email marketing tool) to new bloggers who are starting out.

Requirements: You can join here for free.

Amazon Associates

Who didn’t hear already about Amazon Associates? Everybody can make money with Amazon, and you don’t even need a website!

It’s as simple as joining their affiliate program and using your product links. Every time somebody buys something through your links, you’ll get a 2%-10% of the price sale. The more items you sell per month, the higher the commission will be.

So far I’ve only made a few hundred dollars, but I know from bloggers who are making thousands of dollars every month with Amazon Associates.

By now, you should have an idea of some of my favourite affiliate programs. My recommendation for you is to join a few of them and start testing them before promoting.

Note: Affiliate marketing is not about spamming links everywhere and hoping to get sales. Affiliate marketing is about recommending products that you’ve tried and are happy with. I would never recommend a product that I’ve never used before or that I don’t like. Just do it as you would do with a friend.

If you use the right strategies and promote products relevant to your blog niche, you’ll be able to make a significant income from it.
