11 High Paying Affiliate Programs For Bloggers

High Paying Affiliate Programs

Affiliate marketing is a great way for bloggers to earn a solid income every month.

In fact, it can be the best way (aside from creating and selling your own product or service). Especially if you already have a good following.

But finding a high-quality product that has a good price tag and a great commission rate is pretty tough.

And that is why we're both here today...

In this post, I will show you 11 high-quality products with high paying affiliate programs, so you can start earning affiliate sales.

Let's jump right in.​


What We Looked At

  • ​Quality of product(s)
  • Products pricing
  • Commission rate
  • Recurring commissions
  • Affiliate tools (custom links, tracking, reports, etc)

Note: If, for some reason, you have no idea what affiliate marketing is, start here.


HOSTING
Web Hosting Affiliate Programs

Below are the affiliate programs of web hosts that provide fast, reliable, and quality services.


SiteGround's Affiliate Program

SiteGround is one of the many web hosts that offer exceptional services. They offer shared hosting, cloud hosting, reseller hosting, and dedicated servers. Also, dedicated hosting for WordPress and Joomla.

Their services are used by some of the biggest names in blogging. Including Jon Morrow, the owner of Boost Blog Traffic.

​The Products/Plans:

  • StartUp - $9.95 per month
  • GrowBig - $14.95 per month
  • GoGeek - $29.95 per month
  • Note: There is always a special deal going on. So the prices are usually 30-70% off.

There are also other services, like cloud hosting, for sites that get millions of visitors every month.

​The Affiliate Program

  • ​Free to join.
  • Affiliate link creator/customizer.
  • Custom link tracking.

WP Engine's Affiliate Program

WP Engine is one of the best WordPress managed hosting services in the world.

They provide their services to some of the biggest names in the internet marketing space. These names include Brian Dean and Neil Patel (last time I checked).

​The Products/Plans:

  • Personal Plan - $29 per month or $290 per year
  • Professional Plan - $99 per month or $990 per year
  • Business Plan - $249 per month or $2490 per year

WP Engine is one of the best WordPress managed hosting service in the world.

But I'd recommend only recommending them to sites that have 25k visitors or less, OR sites that have 400k visitors or more and don't care about paying extra.

​The Affiliate Program

  • ​​Free to join.
  • Everything the Shareasale affiliate network provides.
  • Bonus commissions when you reach 5 sales per month.

Their affiliate program is a little harder to get into than most. They don't just let anybody join.

So make sure you have a good amount of traffic coming in every month before applying for the WP Engine affiliate program.
