How To Blog / Make Money Blogging Affiliate Programs 


Most companies will have an affiliate program where they pay a commission to someone for referring a new customer to them. If you blog about your favorite products and brands, you should apply to that company to become an affiliate for their brand.

Becoming an affiliate is fairly easy, and you don’t need a ton of page views or followers to be approved by most companies. So even if you are a brand new blogger with a brand new blog, you can still be a successful affiliate. There’s no need to wait until you have a bigger following, you can (and should!) monetize and start earning affiliate income from day one.


The amount of income you earn from your affiliate links once you’ve posted them depends on how well you’ve written your content to engage your readers, and how well you promote your posts to bring in more readers.

With affiliate marketing revenue, the sky’s the limit. It isn’t unusual to add an extra couple thousand dollars to your monthly income.



There are literally thousands of affiliate programs out there, and some offer extra bonuses on top of your commission.

Some will actually pay you a recurring commission, so you continue to make commission off of one sale over and over again. CreativeLive is an awesome one that pays 30% recurring commission.

Some affiliate programs will even offer you an exclusive bonus and/or send you free products to try and blog about. Madison Reed’s affiliate program, (a hair color company) offers it’s affiliates a great bonus of free hair color to use, as well as pay a commission of $20 for every transaction you refer.

A few affiliate programs also offer you the use of a ‘vanity code’ where you can share an exclusive coupon code to your readers, using your blog’s name. This gives a professional touch to your recommendations. Mixbook offers vanity codes to its affiliates, as well as paying one of the highest commissions in the self-publishing industry, with commissions starting at 15%, plus up to $30 in bonuses.

Affiliate networks are websites that you become a member of (for free) and have access to several companies looking for affiliates. You don’t need a ton of page views or social followers to be approved as an affiliate, which is helpful when you are just starting out.

These are my favorite affiliate networks:

Awin This is an awesome affiliate network. Sign up, get approved, work with brands, get paid. The commissions vary depending on which brands you work with – but I find it to be very lucrative. There is a $5 sign-up fee, but you get it back once you are approved.

ShareASale -I love this one because it makes joining and keeping track of several affiliate programs super easy. You can earn cash pretty quick with this site if you are actively promoting your affiliate links. They have a handy tool to build collections of products that you can then add to your website as well.



Best Business Tools And Resouces - Flexoffers- Affiliate Marketing - Passive Income - Affiliates - Content - Social Media - Management - SEO - Promote | www.herpaperroute.comFlexOffers is similar to Shareasale, but what makes FlexOffers special is that you earn a commission from every sale made by members you refer. There are a lot of big brands on this network. But you don’t have to be a big blogger yet to make money here! You can actually make money quite quickly with this platform as there are so many brands for so many niches.






Influencer agencies are companies that connect brands with bloggers. You can apply to these types of agencies once you have high page views and a healthy number of followers on social media. These are great for connecting with brands that will pay you to do sponsored blog and Instagram posts.

The influencer agencies that I like are:

Linqia is an influencer agency. Bloggers can use this network to partner up with brands for sponsorships and get paid to write sponsored posts. They accept bloggers who have 2,500+ monthly visitors or followers. It is invite-only. Here’s your invite!

  1. This is a great list. I love Share-A-Sale. I’m also a big fan of the Skimlinks affiliate network. I just started with them a month or so ago. It REALLY simplifies the affiliate marketing process!

  2. Hello, I went through your Flexoffers link and signed up but I am having hard time of figuring out how it works. I been doing as much research as i can about it because I can not a find a article or video tutorial of how to use Flexoffers. Can you please explain more or maybe give me a link that can explain more how to start publishing ADs onto my site? Thank you!

    • Hi, in Flexoffers, in the top nav click ‘links’ then click where it says ‘Advertiser search.’ Choose in the company name that you want to get a link from, click ‘Search’ and then you will see a list of that brand’s current promotions and links. Copy the link of the one you want and paste it to your site. That’s all you need to do.

  3. Very informative and interesting. How many views would you suggest before using affiliate programs? I’m fairly new to blogging and don’t think I have the right audience for this.

    • Hi Sam, there is no restriction, you should start joining affiliate programs and blogging about the products from day one. The number of views/amount of traffic your blog gets doesn’t determine your ability to be a great affiliate marketer – go for it! 🙂

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing! I’ve been looking for a roundup of affiliate programs!This was so helpful!

  5. Saving this so I can come back to it later and join the lists! Right now I am only a member of Amazon but I’m looking for more groups to join. I have a Cricut and buy from their often but didn’t know they had an affiliates program. Def. going to join that one 🙂

  6. This is a comprehensive list. I just have one question at what point after you start blogging should you apply to these affiliates? I can image that they are looking for a website with some traffic and enough content

    • Hi, You should monetize your blog from day one, and you are ready to apply to affiliate programs as long as you have at least 5 – 8 blog posts of content. Your traffic actually isn’t taken into consideration when joining affiliate programs – but traffic does matter when joining influencer agencies, so I recommend starting with the affiliate programs/networks first.

  7. This is fabulous Chelsea. Thanks so much for the link. I’m just wondering though, I’m a wedding blogger. I’d love to get some insights into what websites/products would be best suited to me.

    • Fantastic! I update this post regularly so check back again for new programs 🙂

  8. I hadn’t realized before that those influencer networks were invite only. Good to know! I’ll keep that in mind when I have enough traffic to qualify.

    • Linqia accepts members as soon as they have 2,500 page views so its a great one for blogs that are just starting out

  9. Oh, I can’t wait to check all of these out! I have a brand new blog and will definitely need to use some of these.

    • Hi Tan, I’m so happy to hear you were successful in trying out these affiliate marketing programs! Which ones have been the best for you so far?
