Affiliate Marketing Programs To Join
Are you looking for affiliate marketing programs to join and promote on your blog? If you are a blogger looking for additional ways to boost your blogging income, affiliate marketing is a great way to get started.
But first, what is affiliate marketing?
Per Wikipedia: “Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.”
If you promote or review a product or service, and someone buys a product you promote or review via your affiliate link, you get a commission.
Here is a list of affiliate marketing programs to check out:
Amazon is very popular with affiliates. A lot of shoppers purchase from Amazon. I find their affiliate program a good fit for my food blog. I love recommending favorite kitchen products that I have found to be helpful.
ShareASale is an affiliate marketing network. They have been in business for a long time and have a huge network with thousands of merchants to choose from. When you get approved as an affiliate for ShareASale, you are able to browse through their network of merchants and apply for that merchant within the ShareASale website directly, instead of having to apply for each merchant’s website individually and filing out a separate application every time. I have contacted their customer service team with questions, and they have always been very helpful.
A few merchants in their network that you may have heard of are:

If you currently use Tailwind to schedule your pins on Pinterest, you would agree that Tailwind is a huge time saver! Tailwind helps you schedule your pins ahead, find new contents to share, just to name a few. Tailwind has been a huge help for scheduling my Pinterest pins, and I highly recommend their service. You can join their affiliate network via their website or via ShareASale. I joined Tailwind via ShareASale.

If you are using WordPress theme for your website, StudioPress is a great affiliate program to join. StudioPress offers many themes for WordPress to choose from. I currently use the Foodie Pro theme on my blog, which I definitely recommend for food bloggers.
When you sign up with Viglink, they provide you a snippet of code to add to your site, and Viglink will automatically convert your existing link posts into revenue generating links.
