Top Affiliate Marketing Softwares and Why do you need one?

Published

on

Do you see how zombies are living (pseudo) creatures that exist to only make your life impossible? But what if they had a brain? Right, they wouldn’t be zombies anymore!

It’s the same with affiliate marketing- as an affiliate marketer with no affiliate marketing software to help you track your business growth and campaign data, your business is very much like those zombies and the affiliate marketing software is the ‘brain’ that it needs.

We’ve all perceived affiliate marketing in this way- you enroll into an affiliate program, or join an affiliate platform, get accepted to the program, publish content and links on your affiliate channel and earn conversion, eventually leading to earning money.

Think about it – tracking your affiliate data is equivalent to keeping a count of the amount of money you’re investing in affiliate marketing. If you aren’t keeping up with your data, how do you know which campaigns were a hit and which not? How do you know if you’re earning enough traffic for your programs? All I am trying to say is, how do you if your business is growing or slowly moving towards its impending doom?

Right. Get an affiliate marketing software, already… unless you want your business to go out there with hands stretched, grunting, and walking lifelessly (get my point?)

What is Affiliate Marketing Software and Why do you need one? 

Affiliate marketing is a vertical where you have two options: if you want to go fast, go alone, and if you want to go far, go with friends. Here your friends are affiliate softwares that empower you to drive your sales to the limits of the sky.

Traditionally, the whole parallel of affiliate marketing revolves around cookies- if you’ve ever ‘accepted cookies’ on a blog or website, the cookie remembers you and helps the website keep you in mind, in return. When you make a purchase through this website you accepted the cookies, the website earns a commission through a larger network or program they’ve enrolled into. Usually, the cookies are forgotten by the website in 30 days, but it really all depends on the programs that the website enrolls into.

Affiliate softwares, in a nutshell, track these cookies, other than several other systems such as Facebook and Google Ads, and pixels, etc. They are a sort of infrastructure that track and manage your affiliate programs with a set of technological solutions to give you in-depth analysis of your campaigns, and programs- your marketing growth in short.

They feature panels for both affiliates and merchants with every possible feature you’d require to track your data- this includes establishing commissions, adding products, getting customized tracking links, and managing your ad campaigns.

Affiliate softwares, unlike platforms do not have a transaction fee for each commission paid, so basically they aren’t just inexpensive but cost-efficient. It gets more intuitive to know which ad campaigns to initiate at what time, all while being able to customize a multitude of things in your programs.

It’s all there!

Trending Affiliate Marketing Softwares You Should Give A Try

Churning out quality products in a field that is cramming with flashy services and softwares can be difficult.

However, I am here to extend a limb and give you quick insights to the top 10 affiliate marketing platforms that have been chosen on the parameters : mobility, comprehensiveness of features, ease and flexibility of use, and cost-efficiency.

With me as your guide, I am sure you can mull about which software is the best fit for you that can help reinforce your programs and track data in a simplistic yet sophisticated manner.

So, let the games begin. It’s Hunger Games in Affiliate Marketing!

Voluum

Want an on-the-go affiliate tracking software that tracks your performance the best with 100% realistic data and stats? Voluum is your partner! It isn’t about biased reviews because no matter what I write about Voluum on Voluum, there are double-positive reviews strewn all over the Internet that shall prove to you why Voluum is the best affiliate marketing software on the block.

With Voluum offering end-to-end solutions to both advertisers and affiliates, tracking your advertising data, scrutinizing analytics, and optimizing your ad campaigns can’t get any more seamless. The best part about Voluum is that it doesn’t just allow you to track data and provide solutions to make the cut in affiliate marketing; it allows you to do all that on your phone.

Voluum understands that you have a life and you can’t stay on your computer all the time or carry it around for that fact, so it decided to bring all your data on something that you do carry around with you- your mobile device. It can also store information on the cloud to be later accessed by you on any device to keep a pulse on your activities.

Innovation meets profitability with Voluum when you get state-of-the-art features like the ability to monetize campaigns by purchasing convenient and optimal traffic that converts, add limitless campaigns, make landing pages, understand factors that mold your funnels, create lists within your CPA dashboard, and so on.

I can’t really go on and on about Voluum! It’s your cure-all solution. Period.

The lowest prices in the market make Voluum one of the most used affiliate tracking software with plans starting from only $49/month when billed annually. The robust security solutions to keep your confidential data safe make transactions on volume as safe as a tortoise in a shell.

The shell may still crack, but Voluum’s encryption doesn’t.

Everflow

One of the good and reliable ones out there, Everflow is a cloud-based affiliate marketing software that helps you get the full picture of your business through its innumerable and highly utilitarian features.

If you’ve been watching your success movie in the 4:3 ratio to this point, Everflow is the affiliate tracking software that can help you watch not just in full screen but in 3D. It boasts a simple and flexible interface that is clean and enables users to automate their data collection, track and manage while optimizing all their campaigns from one powerful and amalgamated dashboard.

To determine how your affiliate placements have been performing, Everflow delivers insights to your data in a comprehensive manner with deep analytics. The real-time metrics make it easy to distinguish between advertising placements and drill down into campaign data like profit, revenue, margins, conversions, and clicks, all from one unified dashboard that’s easy to access and get the hang of.

It leverages the Google Cloud Infrastructure to offer speed and scalability at the same time while optimizing your campaigns via SmartSwitch. A handful of features and the pricing? Peanuts. Everflow has one of the lowest prices in the affiliate industry and depends on the number of clicks. So on average, you pay $200 for up to 50k clicks, which is a satiating number and unambiguously reasonable.

ThriveTracker

The fastest-growing CPA community, Clickbooth, has a multitude of advertisers and different segments to allow you to best filter your search. You can track the number of affiliate commission models such as CPA, CPL, CPC, CPI, and CPE while easily connecting with vetted clients that are worth promoting for.

But that sounds more like a platform, doesn’t it? Which Clickbooth legit is but its in-house affiliate marketing software ThriveTracker isn’t worth missing. With a growing portfolio, Clickbooth recently added an affiliate tracking software, ThriveTracker, to help its consumers with ample performance marketing space. It acts as a ‘home base’ for the clients and affiliates alike to track their affiliate data and make the most out of their business.

Which campaign’s working? Which isn’t it? How do you optimize your ad campaigns? How do you get a proper and accurate report of your conversions and growth? ThriveTracker is the answer to all!

However, I personally felt that the monitoring process and the results weren’t optimal, and if you want to get the most out of their services, you’d have to wait for quite some time while they augment the development and service team to improve the software.

ShareASale

The market network with an in-house tracking and reporting tool, ShareASale, is your one-stop-solution to not just finding the right programs but tracking how much you’re earning from each program.

Sounds perfect, right? It’s going to get even better…

ShareASale is equipped with cutting-edge technologies that include tracking clicks, organizing data, and commendable quality customer support. Real-time tracking of data and following up with specialized and accurate reports by ShareASale that show merchants the crucial facets of a business venture allows for boosted productivity and improved efficaciousness in terms of handling affiliate tools. Apart from this, it becomes the backdoor to tapped earning opportunities that have the potential to boom your business. They also have a FlowXChange feature that gives you full and absolute access to automate your ad-campaigns and earn higher conversions.

ShareASale isn’t just fast or accurate; it’s legit the perfect platform for merchants and affiliates to boost their income regardless of which plane they lie in- domestic or international. The one reason (out of many) I recommend ShareASale is that when you’re welding an affiliate marketer, the software gives you the nudge in the right direction to start getting some cash rolling in. How? It gives you the insight to which links have been clicked and which haven’t been clicked at all, allowing private partitioning of traffic and a multidimensional analytics system so that you know where you’re failing.

Unarguably one of the best affiliate marketing software complemented by a great UI and an extensive set of features that you need to track your affiliate growth efficiently makes ShareASale a software that packs a big punch at little cost. The pricing starts from $200/month, and believe me; it’s one of the most cost-effective affiliate marketing solutions in the market.

Post Affiliate Pro

As the name suggests, this powerful affiliate marketing software is designed to help you grow your business and increase your income through its endless array of features. The one thing that Post Affiliate Pro boasts so proudly is the fact that it can link you to more than 170 CMS. This is why over 2700 companies from all the nooks and corners of the world trust Post Affiliate Pro to give them insight into real and accurate affiliate data.

Using the right affiliate tracker can push your services efficiently, and with Post Affiliate Pro offering you a customizable interface, themes, multilingual software, forced matrix, trend report, and the list goes on- you can’t find a better offer.

With the free integration to countless (not really) CMS, you have the freedom to create and manage your very own affiliate program. Does that mean you can be a merchant too? Of course, duh! And you can do this all from scratch!

Robust security solutions with fully-customizable commission structures give you the opportunity to try your hands on multiple programs and campaigns to find that one gem in the sand that can finally be your key to achieving unbridled success.

The one feature that absolutely won my heart was the direct link tracking. What does that mean? When you see it from the consumer’s point of view, they hesitate to click on affiliate links. This is tackled by Post Affiliate Pro like a pro (never mind the joke) with its efforts to maintain the appearance of your affiliate link and page to increase the number of conversions you get.

Although a pro at its job, Post Affiliate Pro doesn’t charge like one, with prices starting from $97/month and a 14-day free trial to see the power you will be utilizing before making a purchase.

TUNE

Making well-informed business decisions can be tough without accurate, actionable data to lay the foundation of your decision on ‘which way to go.’ Tune helps you ‘tune’ into this actionable data.

Before everything, the pun was great, wasn’t it?

The point is, with TUNE’s powerful reporting and tracking tools, integrating your email marketing and fraud management systems into your affiliate tracking data doesn’t just get seamless; it gets intuitive.

Geared towards measuring, analyzing, and optimizing your performance in your affiliate programs, TUNE is one affiliate marketing software worth giving a shot. The 2-way API functionality, a highly customizable dashboard to integrate all your integral systems to use, and real-time metric analysis, makes TUNE the perfect off-the-shelf software designed to cater to all your tracking requirements.

Going beyond their call of duty, TUNE also has 24 hours available customer support to make sure that you do not experience any hassles or issues on the software. The reputation matters to them!

For unlimited support and up to 300,00 gross clicks, TUNE is available at only $279/ month. However, if you do not have such impressive data to bother TUNE with, there are plans one step down, so feel free to choose what you want and how much you want to spend on what you want.

PS: If you think TUNE is relatively new in the market, don’t be mistaken. Previously known as HasOffers, TUNE is one name in the affiliate marketing vertical that has crawled its way into the tracking solutions since the earliest of the concept of affiliate tracking.

AffTrack

The ONLY affiliate marketing software that offers unlimited clicks for any of its packages, AffTrack is the solution to many startups and amateur affiliates who do not have to pay a fortune to make optimum use of the resources offered by AffTrack.

More than a tracking system, AffTrack is a powerful solution offering CRM, device targeting, free-epoxy detection with full API options that work in close proximity to your affiliate programs and platforms to enhance your scalability and customization.

Built keeping the needs of affiliates in mind, the software has a mobile-friendly interface that allows them to monitor campaigns and analyze the reports on any device, anytime. What makes it stand out is the incorporation of cap management tools that can potentially increase your revenues.

I am not completely sure about the pricing, but there are often promotional offers on ts pricing with an annual plan after heavy mark-down going for as low as $499. After the first year, the users are charged $799, and with such reasonable pricing, AffTrack has some influential, gigantic networks in-house that leverage it since 2009.

AnyTrack

The inclusion of any track in the list is like one of those complicated relationships that you just can’t figure out. For starters, AnyTrack allows you to track and sync conversions using Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel. However, on the other hand, it doesn’t provide integration with Amazon Affiliate. How could it not? With so many affiliate marketers based on Amazon Affiliate, not providing integration to the network is downright ridiculous.

Moving on, AnyTrack favors a number of ways to track your data on Google Ads, Facebook and also provides SEO tracking to provide actionable insights allowing you to improve your scalability (and earn more money, of course).

With AnyTrack, a single line of code called AnyTrack TAG connects all the metrics and pixels together and provides webhooks to sync conversions with email marketing tools like MailChimp, API tools, and third party reports.

Just started venturing into the whole new parallel of affiliate marketing? With AnyTrack you can start learning the basics of tracking your data without having to spend money with a free plan that allows up to 5000 sessions per month.

The basic plan is priced at $50/month and the advanced, mostly recommended for agencies at $300/month.

LinkTrust

Design. Build. Manage. In a nutshell, every tracking solution offers this. What paints them in different colors is their additional features, and LinkTrust is one affiliate marketing software that has been painted in all the right colors. From tracking to customizing almost everything, which includes logins, ads, and even your tracking links, LinkTrust has got you covered.

Trust me or not, LinkTrust is a software you wouldn’t wanna miss out on. See what I did there?

Packed with numerous features that include (but not limited to) managing and mentoring events, setting up filters, login caps, and the integration of a fraud-detection system to report scamming programs and ad campaigns if you’re a part of one, LinkTrust helps you track all of your affiliate data through pixels, server, post, cookies (duh!), and more. The fraud-detection movement doesn’t just report but also prevents the initiation of any such campaign that could potentially harm your website’s reputation.

The intuitive dashboard allows for a unified junction to all your feature requirements with a centralized view. The best part about the dashboard is the ability to be shared through multiple platforms to let others know how good (or bad) your ad campaigns are moving. Providing deep insights into Google Analytics’ data from the menu in your dashboard, LinkTrust can greatly help you streamline your functions and workflows.

Best known for its gold-standard customer service, LinkTrust offers some of the most competitive prices in the industry, starting at $299/month and spiking up to $799/month depending on the limits of features and extent of monitoring.

HitPath

With affiliate management and multichannel tracking, HitPath surely deserved a place on the list. With exceptionally friendly and clean UI and features like cross pub campaign acceleration, HitPath allows some serious customizations to improve your scalability as an affiliate marketer no matter how you operate- as a webmaster, email marketer, or an affiliate marketer.

Fast and productive, HitPath has a wide learning curve that makes it one of the best software for tracking growth and data as a beginner. Customer support is available around the clock, and the software also offers free training to get around using the software. This translates to the fact that it was lining up with similar tracking solutions; HitPath allows you to not just adapt to its own interface and features, but most other affiliate marketing software in the market.

HitPath, in all brevity, is the state-of-the-art solution to collecting, tracking, and analyzing your growth as an affiliate marketer with flexible customer support to help you out on your way from day one. Already brimming with features, HitPath also has ‘additional features’ if you ever turn into a large-scale agency or enterprise.

Two elements infused in HitPath that require special mention is that one, it integrates with all your existing processes without any impediments. Two, it is the closest to a solution that saves you the expense and difficulty of tailoring an elegant ‘in-house’ look of your website, allowing affiliates and merchants alike to use skinned and branded interfaces.

You can request a free demo on the official website, but there is no specific pricing for every user, and the cost-model is developed based on your specific requirements.

Top 25 Affiliate Marketing Programs that Pay the Highest Commissions

‘Would you buy this pen?’

Of course, not! There are no reasons to.

However, if I tell you it’s a high-quality instrument and not just an average pen, with a sleek design, an elegant body, a sturdy built and smooth flowing ink that could keep writing for perpetuity, you may show some interest (play along even if you won’t!)

You’d probably ask me if I built this pen or if I own it. No, I don’t, but I am making X company help sell it THROUGH me. What do I get in all this? A commission for the sale made (so please buy it!).

That may not have been laconic, but in nutshell, this is what affiliate marketing is about, more or less! 

Just as important a black umbrella is in London, are affiliate programs in affiliate marketing. The right affiliate programs can help you be the rich Jordan Belfort of The Wolf of Wall Street. And the wrong ones, unfortunately, the poor one. Do you know who Jordan preferred? The rich version!

So, what does the right affiliate program sound like? Yes, it’s the cookie time and commission type but it always boils down to money! In this post, I will take you through the highest paying affiliate programs that do not just pay generous commissions but also bring with them their brand recognition.

So, let’s start with the journey to help you be Charles Foster Kane of affiliate marketing!

What are Affiliate Programs?

Also known as associate programs, affiliate marketing programs are arrangements. They allow an online merchant web platform to pay affiliate websites a particular commission for sending traffic. The affiliate website posts their links on the merchant website and gets paid as per the agreement terms.

If you have done even a little research on affiliate marketing, you must have come across two terms. affiliate programs and affiliate networks. You already know what affiliate programs are, but what exactly is an affiliate network? Definitely not some cult, I assure you!

The affiliate network is like a directory or a list of affiliate programs on one single platform. Some quick examples for Affiliate networks are CJ Affiliate, JVZoo, ClickBank, etc. On the other hand, affiliate programs are devised by only one company. It is not a directory and is not required to promote others except one company. Few examples of Affiliate programs are the Fitbit Affiliate program, Ulta Affiliate Program, etc.

So what do you choose between the two? To tell you in all the bare facts, it’s all up to you as to how you want to start as an affiliate marketer. However, if I were your guardian angel, I’d probably ask you to go with affiliate networks. I say so because while you learn the ropes of affiliate marketing, you also get the exposure you need. Exposure is the starting point for any beginner on affiliate networks.

Baby steps!

How can you be successful as an Affiliate Marketer?

To be successful at whichever program you enrol in, you need to research and understand the sub-niche of the vertical you have a knack for. Also, to succeed in the domain, you must create and post high-quality content where your affiliate link can fit naturally. Credibility and high market reputation are two factors that are required. These are important elements if you want to be with any company as an affiliate marketer. In the longer run.

The other essential factors here are conversion rates, dashboard features, availability of tools and resources, tracking sales, favourable cookie life, and terms and conditions. Good affiliate programs provide quality resources for these factors as they are very much required for long term association with marketers.

25 Highest Paying Affiliate Programs to enrol in

Do you know what distinguishes Christian Dior from ‘Christin Bior’? No, it’s not just the brand. It’s also the quality, the trust, the genuine vintage vibes. That is what the original (and obviously the superior) stands for.

Similarly, there are affiliate programs that may look compelling from the outside. However, once you’re enrolled in, the worst chink in the armour turns out to be the commission rates.

To choose a program that works equivalent to Christian Dior (I’d have to stop referencing that before they call me out for it), you do not just go for the paparazzi, but what matters the most – commission! Of course, we’re all the sabre-toothed squirrel from the Ice Age! Or why would you be here in the first place?

How To Make Up-to $25000 Per Month Using Affiliate Marketing

Published

on

By

Cassandra is a fitness enthusiast who can geek all day about TABATA, workout music, fitness supplements, and gears. Out of boredom and some enthusiasm, she casually started blogging on the Internet, reviewing different nootropics, greens powders, and gears. Now, Cassandra started generating traffic on her channel and her views eventually went from 50 to 50,000.

Cassie (let’s call her that) now starts venturing into joining affiliate programs and adding affiliate links to her blog for the products she reviews and when people make a purchase using her link, she earns a commission that we call ‘affiliate commission’.

Cassandra, however, is a fictitious character and so is her story, but the facts are based on real-life strategies which we in a nutshell call affiliate marketing.

The thing with affiliate marketing is that well, it’s easy to start but to gain momentum, you must work hard, try different things, engage all your creative assets, and most importantly have patience. I can tell, Cassandra didn’t become a successful affiliate marketer in a day, she leveraged her time, her creativity, and her financial assets to get where she is.

Now that we’ve touched the tip of the iceberg, let’s go diving down to experience the majesty of what lies beneath.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

I know I just explained what affiliate marketing is, but I did also say that it’s just the tip of the iceberg. So what is affiliate marketing really? Is it really a good source of passive income without working 9 to 5? Are there rules and regulations I have to comply with when I start into this vertical? 

Hold on! I will get to each one of those questions running into your mind like a mouse on a mill.

In simple words, affiliate marketing is a process in which you (the affiliate) earn a commission for marketing a product that is originally manufactured or created by another person or company. You simply have to search for a niche you enjoy and start marketing the products that fall into this niche for which you will get a part of the profit the company made from the sale of the product.

Let me give you a real-life example: This is a wireless headphone (picture) and in my opinion. It has great bass, a nice build and the stereo sound is superb. But, did I manufacture this headphone? Obviously not. I don’t even properly know the complete mechanism of Bluetooth and it’s working. But I did help the company who manufactured the headphone sell a product and this is what they shall be paying me for.

Now you know what affiliate marketing is about. So, let’s understand if it’s a good source of income and whether you can actually make a fortune out of it.

Do you ever come across those nonsensical facebook posts and google redirect pages that tell you working 2 hours a day, every day, you can make $50,000 a month? That is why they are nonsensical. These click baits will flash models wearing a $10,000 suit, driving a McLaren, and whatnot. But in reality, those models know not crap about affiliate marketing. This is exactly why affiliate and digital marketing are some of the most romanticized of’em all.

Initially, when you start as an affiliate marketer, you need to understand that exhausting your brain to the limits that it gives you a genius idea is the most important aspect of marketing a product.

Next comes the risk of leveraging your money into a certain spectrum of products and seeing if it works out. And finally, it’s about pouring all your dedication into what you do. It doesn’t mean you have to work day in and day out. Sometimes you can just sip a mojito and invest two hours and make enough at the end. That’s not the point! The point is you can start making money through affiliate marketing. But some days are going to be hard and they will ask you to quit, stop with the persistence. But if you can make it to the end of the day, you are going to earn a really impressive amount of money from the comfort of your home.

Every business has some guidelines and affiliate marketing is no different. Let me give you a quick insight into the affiliate guidelines and disclosure before we move to the next bit.

All about Affiliate Disclosure and FTC Compliance

If the affiliate and the advertiser have a material connection, the affiliate must disclose the connection to the consumer. The disclosure doesn’t have to be language-specific. It must be clear and as FTC (Federal Trade Commission) mentions ‘conspicuous’. FTC also mentions that the disclosure must be stated without ambiguity. And the font must stand out against the background (nothing like deep green T on an aqua green background). The FTC validates a disclosure between the affiliate and the company on the basis of these 4 Ps or parameters:

  • Presentation: The disclosure must be worded in a way that the consumers can understand what the affiliation is about. A good example of how you should present your affiliate disclosure is:

“ This website contains affiliate links and I may receive a small fee when you make a purchase using these links. There is no additional cost to you.”

This tells the consumer that the website earns through affiliate links. It also informs that the affiliate shall earn a certain amount of commission if the consumer makes a purchase using the links. If the consumer is cynical about whether there shall be any charges levied when he makes the purchase through the links, the disclosure clearly states that the consumer shall have to pay no extra charges while making the purchase.

If you are thinking there shall be any loopholes, at all, to assert the disclosure but somehow obscure that you’ve been endorsing the brand, remember this: This isn’t an episode of Suits and you aren’t Harvey Specter!

  • Prominence: Not everyone is Superman with supervision that helps them see through the tiniest bits of space. In fact, no one’s Superman, so makes your disclosure prominent enough to be read with an ideal font size that is clearly visible to the consumer.
  • Proximity: Proximity is the analysis of the claims made through the disclosure. It’s all about the closeness of the disclosure to the claims that have been modified by it.

Disclosure is most trusted and effective when it is placed in the relevant posting close to the triggered claim.

  • Placement: Where you place your disclosure is a big deal to the FTC. Apparently, in a blog, the disclosure is usually at the end of the homepage. It includes an integral part of all the other information available about the blog. It contains information such as About Us, Privacy Policy, Sitemap, etc. about the blog. But the FTC doesn’t label it as ‘sufficient’. Ideally, you should be placing your disclosure at the top or in the middle and it can be as concise as ‘Ad’ ‘Sponsored Ad’ ‘This post contains affiliate links’’.

Are the disclosures the only thing you should take care of as an affiliate marketer?

No, the FTC also asserts, “any unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce, is declared unlawful.” Now, shooing away the legality from the statement (only for a better understanding), suppose you took up an affiliate program that asked you to advertise for jeans.

What you do in an attempt to attract potential buyers is the claim that the jeans you are advertising are ‘the best jeans in the world’. This can be considered misleading. And also deceptive if there is no proof to substantiate the claim made and FTC isn’t going to like it.

You must also be thinking, what happens if an affiliate program isn’t FTC Compliant:

  • FTC freezes your assets.
  • It files a lawsuit against you for misleading and ten other suits that you didn’t even know existed.
  • The commission shall require you to submit all your marketing assets and oversight to them for at least 10 years. This standard limit can go as high as 20 years.

Types of Affiliate Marketing Programs

Based on the mode of commission, advertisement, and certain other criteria, Affiliate Marketing Programs can be divided into 5 types. Let’s go through them.

  • PPC (pay-per-click):

This is the most basic type of affiliate marketing that is somewhat similar to AdSense (you know, tomayto-tomahto). The affiliate marketers earn revenue from the action that the website visitors take, generally clicks. The other factors are:

  1. Impressions
  2. Leads in the database of the website.

Pay Per Click affiliates generally choose a niche where they can grow a target audience that is likely to take action on the triggering ads relevant to the niche. You don’t have to be Professor X in order to read your audience’s mind, just a set of facts to see what triggers the audience the most. Profitable PPC affiliates operate their website at high efficiencies and charge their corresponding publishers a fortune to allow their ads on the website.

  • PPL (pay-per-lead):

In PPL, the affiliate partner is paid the commission for every successful lead. The leads that they potentially generate within the dispatch of the stratagem.

If you are into making money seriously through affiliate marketing, PPL can be one of the most lucrative affiliates marketing structures.

The better the quality of the leads generated, the higher the commission, so buckle up and start with it already. Not just affiliates but one-third party promoters also earn payment when they achieve a certain course of action on the behalf of the partner offering the commission.

Usually, the actions that generate leads and allow affiliates to earn money are:

  • Sign-up
  • Opt-in
  • Submit personal details such as contact information, etc.

Designing an effective PPL marketing strategy that works is tough. The marketing needs to be fine-tuned and targeted in a way that the results frequently lead to the acquisition of ‘leads’ on the behalf of the program distributor. PPL is also more rigorous a work than PPC because clicking on links? I can do that. Filling up details? Takes too long. The affiliate has to engage the prospect enough to achieve tangible results and drive him to sign up or do whatever the course requires; that is a job in itself.

  • PPS (pay-per-sale):

This sort of marketing takes the game one level-up. In this structure, the affiliate is paid as soon as a lead turns into a successful sale. This translates to the fact that you don’t just generate a lead, you make the consumer buy what they see and when they do it, you earn a reward that is comparatively more than what partners in PPC AND PPL have to offer.

PPS may be compelling, considering the high commission the affiliate partners offer. But in order to succeed in this structure, I’d suggest you start with the basics. PPS is mainly opted by experienced affiliates who have forayed. And these affiliates have already developed strategies on how to convert a prospect into a sale rather than sending loads of referrals and simply ending the job to an expression of intrigue and attentiveness.

  • Recurring commissions:

Let’s start with an example: SkinKraft is a skincare brand that requires you to choose a program. And the products (as per the plan chosen) are delivered on a recurring monthly basis. When you drive the customers to buy SkinKraft’s plans, you get recurring commissions. You get this commission on each of the customer’s monthly purchases until the customer chooses to terminate the plans. This in a nutshell is recurring commissions affiliate marketing.

  • One-time commissions:

This is a simple model that simply translates to the fact that the more referrals you get, the higher the commissions you earn. The higher your authority on the Internet, the higher your commissions for each referral.

How to Make Up to $25,000 through Affiliate Marketing?

  • It’s all in the mind

This is it, this is where it starts. If you make up your mind that you can achieve $25,000 a month through affiliate marketing, with the right set of skills, you can. Cue Tony Robbins says,

“ where your focus goes, energy flows”.

If you can just be hungry about being successful in affiliate marketing, you will ultimately put your energy into achieving it. The driving force is always the mind and it’s always up to you as to what mindset you want to start working with. Is it the fear that leveraging your time and financial assets may prove wrong? Or is it the determination that leveraging your time and investing your assets will get you where you want to be someday?

There will be downfalls but in the world, being successful and being lucky are two different things- not everyone is lucky but everyone can be successful if they try hard enough. So, instead of focusing on why, start focusing on why not!

  • Choose the right niche

I mean, yes, you can start with any niche you think will be the highest paying amongst the others. But choosing the right niche is like choosing the right career after your senior-high.

If you choose to pursue medicine because it pays a lot. And you end up hating yourself in the next two years because you realize that you were always into music. And if you had pursued the thought seriously, you could have been working with a great band. Or you have started a band of your performing in the big cities. What happens next is that you either drive yourself out of responsibility to complete your medical school or drop to polish your music skills.

There’s nothing wrong with dropping and people do it all the time. But if you had just thought for a while and scrutinized the pros and the cons right at the beginning, you wouldn’t have to start from scratch.

Having made that unnecessarily long explanation, let me tell you why choosing the right niche is important to succeed as an affiliate marketer:

  • When you know your niche, you know your products skin-deep.
  • You have an idea of the target audience and what triggers them.
  • If you choose a really broad niche, ranking yourself gets difficult. And so does driving traffic, and if the niche is too narrow, there is never enough traffic.
  • Your driving force isn’t compulsion but passion and passion are the keys to success.
  • The natural, the endorsement, the convincing it gets and you can’t fake liking products in a niche for too long. PEOPLE FIND OUT!
  • The Highest Paying Niches

I am not going to make the mistake of telling you what niche to choose. Rather I am going to put down all the sub-niches that pay the highest in an individual niche and why.

The parameters that categorize each sub-niche on the basis of profitability are:

  • Competitiveness
  • Enough Reader Interest
  • Level of Expertise and Risks involved

YMYL:

Your Money Your Life dominates the complete affiliate marketing vertical when it comes to profitability. Why? It’s simple: any niche that has the ability to either change your life or get you over your financial uptightness is an evergreen niche. Also, YMYL has products that are recurring such as beauty, fitness, nutrition, skincare- these aren’t one-time purchases.

Which sub-niches in YMYL pay the most? 

Health is the highest paying YMYL sub-niche of all because most people want to stay lean and fit through healthy practices and supplements if they need to. Studies show that almost 34% of adults in the US and 15-2of 0% of adolescents suffer from obesity. It drives them to look for ways to stay at a healthy weight. It also drives them to try different things such as paleo, keto, Atkins, intermittent fasting, and e-books to do so.

Beauty is one sub-niche that will never go out of demand, no matter what the status of the YMYL in general. Have you noticed how the beauty section in any mall or supermarket acquires the most floor-space and a prominent position? This is because beauty companies mostly have a large profit margin between the manufacturing and the selling of the product. A generous part of this profit margin is spent by the giants on advertising for the products. And what better way to advertise and promote than to utilize affiliate marketing!

Affiliate marketers in the beauty niche-earn serious commissions from the big giants like Sephora, Huda  Beauty, and Mac. Some affiliate programs such as those offered by Makeup Geek pay a commission of up to 15%, followed by Violet Grey that offers 12%, and Erno Laszlo offering 10%. Follow the money.

Dating- ‘Course, everyone needs love and you know the best part? People break up all the time (no, I am not evil). You can choose to venture into mainstream dating sites, dating and relationship advice (You don’t really need to be a love guru for this. I ain’t but I lecture my friends all the time), dating eBooks, and mail order brides.

Insurance is an intriguing niche and most insurance affiliate programs pay on the basis of PPL or PPS, so it can be a bit competitive as well. Auto Insurance, Life Insurance, Travel, and Health Insurance are some of the keywords you should focus on while creating strategic content that ranks and drives more traffic to your website.

Technology

The problem with health niches is that the traffic is huge but the product price is less. When you are betting on a product of $39 that claims to aid weight loss, people may buy it but the commission will still be a part of the $39 that they spent. My point is: The higher the product price, the higher the commission. Will anyone want to buy a weight loss course book for $250? No. Because it’s completely pointless.

This is where technology comes in. The vertical lacks size but the high product prices make up for it. The commission on products in tech niches is comparatively higher than those on YMYL. It is because a major part of the products aren’t recurring, so people don’t have to worry about paying the hefty price again. And SaaS and other products keep giving its users the innumerable benefits they want.

If you aren’t an authority with Google in the tech space, start with a narrow niche. The best-paying tech niches are:

Hosting isn’t just profitable, it’s seriously profitable. But that also makes it highly competitive, but at the end of the day, there are always rewards. The most integral part of starting up online, hosting is an evergreen sub-niche. It is the perfect recipe for great affiliate programs. When you are new, niche-down a little and start with WordPress Hosting. And after that, you can step up your game to Business Hosting, WooCommerce Hosting, Wix Hosting, and others.

SaaS, just like supplements and beauty products, is a recurring item that keeps regulating its features that makes it more appealing to the users.

Training and Courseware are what brought you to affiliate marketing, now sell it to others. When people think of training as an essential part of the startup or vertical they will be pursuing, they initially attach it to the word ‘success’. This drives the consumers to take up training such as MMO Training.

On a beach, or a long train ride, or a school (obviously) books are everywhere. Most of the people save the plight of carrying a paperback. And they switch to digital solutions such as eBooks and eLearning sites. This makes the Courseware niche one of the most profitable in the affiliate world.

Choose a High Paying Affiliate Program

Choosing the right affiliate program is important. Period. You can’t just sign up for any program, work like an ox, and get paid nuts. No, literally nuts. Depending on your experience and site authority, there are several levels of affiliate programs and even if you are a beginner, there are myriad programs that help you start the right way and pay you what you deserve for your hard work.

Tricks to make Affiliate Marketing a Success and Earn Higher

When you want to double your affiliate profits, bleakly endorsing a product isn’t going to help. In order to have a five-digit income, you’ll need to combine your creative assets with clever marketing skills. And build strategies to make more revenues.

I am not Jay Setty and I won’t go on and on dragging a point (no offense). To cut to the chase, the trick to earning more is placing your affiliate links in the right places:

  1. In Articles: This is a no-brainer, add your affiliate links to your posts, especially in close proximity to the products you are endorsing. The best way you generate clicks and sales is through adding links to review articles. This also translates to the fact that you should write more review articles.

Affiliate links on product comparisons and reviews of products or services generate the most CTR, driving more sales to your pocket. Review articles, mostly from Amazon generate the most sales. They are an easier sell and even if people don’t buy the product, the clicks can result in future sales.

  1. On Social Handles, preferably your posts: No matter what the platform of endorsement, your affiliate links should be embedded on each one of your posts irrespective of the fact that they are placed on Youtube, Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook. Of these, Pinterest drives the most traffic to your affiliate website. So make sure you create engaging content for your Pinterest viewers and embed your links in the relevant posts.
  2. In Emails: Ever heard of email marketing? It’s one of the most profitable cornerstones in digital marketing. The surprising part is that most people open their emails and a significant portion of these people click on links. You can scrunch up your nose saying, ‘Nobody reads newsletters and advertisements in mails’ but the fact is they do! Through emails, you don’t just sell a product or drive clicks, you establish a lasting relationship with your customers. Trust equals money in affiliate marketing.

5 Highest-Paying Affiliate Programs

There’s no get-rich-quick strategy in affiliate marketing that will bump you up to $25,000 in the first month. It will take a few months, maybe a year or two, before you establish a name for yourself and learn the ropes.

When you start with affiliate marketing, keep your expectations realistic. And let me help you search for an affiliate program that earns you some of the highest commissions paid in the market. Below is a list of some of the highest-paying affiliate programs to start making some good money.

It is rare to find an affiliate program that can pay you as high as up to $1000 per purchase. Like what? When I first bumped across this stupendous program, I looked like the saber-toothed (my teeth are fine) Scrat from Ice Age looking at Hubspot like it was my dream acorn. It is to this date, to not only me but many affiliate marketers out there!

What you have to understand here is that HubSpot isn’t looking for hit-and-run type unreliable affiliates. But affiliate websites based on the sales/ marketing niche. The joining is super easy. All you have to do to start earning through this highly effective passive source is click ‘Get Started’ on the Affiliate Program page.

It’s everywhere- from insta stories of popular influencers to the mag covers of the most sophisticated companies, Sephora rules the world of beauty and glamour. If you were into beauty and fashion, congrats, you just found your perfect affiliate match!

You know that beauty and finance are the two highest paying niches in the affiliate marketing field. And with the evergreen business that keeps scaling higher, affiliate marketing in the beauty niche is an opportunity that you should grab (only if you are a cosmetic and skincare fanatic).

But why Sephora when there are other affiliate giants that offer the beauty niche? It’s obvious, the commissions are too low, even for companies like Amazon that offer 1% to 2% on all the products no matter what the price.

Sephora, on the other hand, has a commission structure that goes as high as up to 7.2% with a cookie length of 1 day (not that impressive). With such handsome commission rates, you are sure to earn up to $25,000 working remotely, by becoming an affiliate partner with Sephora.

So, put that lip gloss on (on your website review, not really apply it) and shine bright like a diamond as an affiliate marketer!

Whether you own a store in the vast company or look to promote it for some impressive commission, Shopify has you covered.

With a number of affiliate marketing platforms such as Refersion, LeadDyno, Omnistar, and Affiliatly, Shopify offers its affiliate partners a wide range of products to choose from, in the niche eCommerce Hosting and Store Builder.

The programs can be picky but at the end of the day, they provide you with the highest commissions if you generate quality leads and drive in decent sales from reasonable customers.

Whether you’re an affiliate marketer or not, I’m sure you’ve heard of Amazon’s Affiliate Program- it is literally the king of the hills but the boo-hoo is the short cookie lifetime. Amazon’s Affiliate Program isn’t perfect and highly unreliable. The rates change, the rules can be fussy, but the commissions are justifiable.

But the good part is that it’s a HUGE company, a gorilla in the face of its ant-ish competitors, so no matter what your niche is, you can choose products from Amazon relevant to your spectrum, no matter how obscure, and still make sales. And, this ladies and gentlemen, is why Amazon makes it to the 5 highest paying affiliate programs.

Thinking of taking a trip to Greece? Maybe enjoy the beaches, the sunrise, and the ancient vibes? Expedia helps you from flight bookings to hotel reservations. But when you are an affiliate marketer with a deep interest in traveling or at least daydreaming about traveling, Expedia’s affiliate Program is just the place to start.

They are one of the best traveling affiliate partners. They offer a 5% commission from their Inventory. You can even earn a high as up to 50% of the reservations made by the customers that redirect through you. That’s some high-end commission. Man, I see myself going from zero to 5 digits in a limited time-frame!

Final Words

To be an affiliate marketer is one thing, to be a successful affiliate marketer is another. What I just explained above is succinctly the tip of the iceberg. Those dollar signs gleaming in your eyes (yes, I see you!)  won’t help become a successful affiliate marketer. To start, you’ll need to forget every wrong idea they’ve planted in your brain. Remember two things before when you go for it:

  • Affiliate marketing isn’t tough, it’s just like any other job you would do and every job requires determination.
  • It isn’t a scam. There are prodigies and examples who have been making a fortune through affiliate marketing and you can do it too!
