I’m so happy I managed to help those of you who really needed this information! I hope everyone who subscribed also received the email template. If not, please send me an email and I’ll send it to your inbox. Also feel free to drop me feedback if it was useful yes or not. Today let’s talk about money. It shouldn’t be the only reason behind why you’re blogging but it might be an important one. So today I’m going to share 4 Affiliate Marketing Programs You Should Join To Make Money Online.

1 –  Amazon Affiliate program

I’m starting with this program because it’s suitable for different kind of bloggers. Whether you’re a fashion, beauty, travel or food blogger you will be able to sell things related to your content to your readers. For example is you’re a food blogger, you can add links to your content that will re-direct your readers to the kitchen products that you use.

It’s very easy and straight forward to sign up for the amazon affiliate program. All you need to do it’s to head off to the website and fill in some basic information about yourself and blog and that’s it. Whenever someone clicks on your product link and purchases the product, you will receive  commission on that purchase made.

2 – Shopstyle Collective

This is the very first affiliate program I worked with when I started blogging and still working with today. This is absolutely perfect if your content is mainly fashion and beauty related. You will find a lot of brands and retailers working with Shopstyle Collective. When it comes to this affiliate program, you actually earn money when people even click on the link AND when people purchase the product. So you can already imagine that if you make frequent use of this platform you can earn quick money on the side. As far as I can remember, it was easy to create an account on Shopstyle Collective. They required to have a lot of followers back then. I don’t know if over the years it has changed. But as far as I can remember, even if you’re a newbie you will be able to join the Shopstyle Collective program. See an example of a Shopstyle Collective shop the look – widget below.

3 – AWIN

I absolutely love AWIN. AWIN is a global affiliate network which brings the networks of Affiliate Window and zanox together. They have about 100.000 contributing publishers and approximately 6000 advertisers.  I joined the program I think about 2 to 3 years ago and it’s fantastic. The platform offers a lot of creative tools such as banners and discount codes that you can give you readers. Also, you will receive the latest update on the brands you have joined on the AWIN platform. So AWIN is a platform where you will find a huuuuuge list of brands and retailers. What you have to do is to send the brands/retailers that you prefer a request that you want to join them. If they approve your request you get access to they banners and other promotion tool kit.
Furthermore, you will be able from then on to earn commission on every purchase that people make from your unique link. AWIN is easy to access even as a new blogger. It will ask you some basic questions on bank details, blog info and about yourself. After you’ve submitted your request, they will get back to you if you have been accepted to AWIN or not. AWIN is great if you’re a beauty/fashion blogger. But you will find a lot of brands/retailers from different sectors such as telco, finance and insurance, travel and retail & shopping. See an example of a company’s banner below.

4 – Reward Style

If you’re a fashion/lifestyle/beauty blogger you must have heard of rewardStyle. rewardsStyle is one of the biggest invitation only affiliate marketing programs out there with a network of approximately 1 million global brands. This platform allows you to create deep links and widgets as well similar to the example of Shopstyle above. The interesting thing is, when you search for a product that you want to feature on your blog, you immediately get to see how much you will earn from it. It offers analytics like all the affiliate platforms described above. Another tool that they have which has been extremely popular amongst fashion bloggers is their liketoknow.it tool. This tool enables bloggers to make their social media channel shopable. Your audience need to download the liketoknow.it app and as soon as they double tab your Instagram pictures for example, they will receive an email in their inbox with the items you’re wearing in the image or similar items. You can curate the items on Rewardstyle.

Want to be referred?

rewardStyle is very selective on which bloggers they accept to join the affiliate program. They take your blog following into consideration and the quality/originality of your content. It took me a while for rewardStyle to accept me. This happened a bit easier because one of my blogger friends referred me. So I want to take this opportunity to refer two fashion/beauty/lifestyle bloggers to the rewardStyle program. Just fill in the form below to make a chance to be referred to rewardStyle. Do bare in mind that I do not have any influence on the decision made by rewardStyle. I will pick two bloggers by Wednesday the 18th of October. They will receive an email when they’re chosen. If you haven’t received an email by Wednesday 18.00 GMT+1, then unfortunately you weren’t chosen. See an example of the rewardStyle program below.

    Love this post — I currently use RewardStyle but have used Amazon and others before — I personally feel it’s easier to stick with one but always good to have other options.

    I love the Amazon affiliate program. It’s great for those blogs who are in niches that don’t offer affiliate programs. You can always create your own list of favorite things and place it on your resource page. Got to check out the Shopstyle and Reward sites. Thanks for sharing!
