After years of making money with affiliate marketing, we wanted to show you some of the highest converting affiliate products on the market.

Video Transcript







alright so in this video I'm going to




00:01


show you ten different affiliate




00:03


programs products that you can consider




00:06


promoting if you're looking to make




00:08


money with affiliate marketing now my




00:10


brother and I have done a number of




00:11


different affiliate programs we've tried




00:13


dozens of them we've made thousands of




00:15


dollars with some of them and we want to




00:17


share with you just some strategies that




00:19


we've learned over the years of some




00:20


different products you can consider




00:21


promoting but also how to find these




00:23


products I know this was a difficult




00:25


problem for myself when I started a few




00:26


years ago of how can I actually promote




00:29


this product that I like and the idea




00:31


for affiliate marketing for what we like




00:32


to do is we like to promote products




00:34


that we ourselves already use throughout




00:37


our a day and what we found is that a




00:39


lot of affiliate programs they're kind




00:41


of difficult to find sometimes you have




00:43


to really dig deep to find them and so




00:45


let's get into this today and let's talk




00:47


about the first one this is going to be




00:49


probably maybe a little bit obvious if




00:51


you've ever heard about affiliate




00:52


marketing you've probably heard about




00:53


this one but we just kind of have to get




00:55


it out of the way because it is sort of




00:56


this rite of passage for many people who




00:59


are looking to make money with the




01:00


affiliate marketing and that is simply




01:02


with Amazon Associates now this has a




01:04


lot of pros and cons to it Amazon




01:06


Associates I'm just gonna start with the




01:07


downsides of it is that it's difficult




01:10


to make a lot of money with Amazon




01:12


Associates I know some people who might




01:13


make a few thousand dollars a month with




01:15


it but I don't know people who are




01:17


making millions of dollars with it so




01:19


quickly to show you what the




01:20


Commission's are here with it




01:21


what's great about though and the reason




01:23


why we had to bring it up in this video




01:24


is because there's so many products on




01:26


Amazon that if you have a laptop for




01:29


example people have asked me mate what




01:31


laptop are you using to edit and create




01:33


your videos and essentially run your




01:34


business with I use this Dell XPS 13




01:37


inch laptop I think was about $1,800




01:40


when I bought it but if I want to tell




01:42


people to buy this if I want to promote




01:43


this then one of the best ways for me to




01:46


do that is to just put a link to Amazon




01:48


for this now if you're watching this




01:50


video and you're confused about




01:51


affiliate marketing you might want to




01:53


check out a different video I'll link it




01:54


up here I'll throw a card here or I'll




01:56


leave a link for it down below as well




01:57


for kind of explaining what affiliate




02:00


marketing is I'm just kind of assuming




02:01


you know a little bit about it already




02:02


but Amazon Associates it's a rite of




02:04


passage but there are some kind of




02:06


really interesting snippets in here




02:07


within the Amazon affiliate program that




02:09


can actually make quite a bit of money




02:10


so my kind of go-to




02:12


for Amazon is simply there's going for




02:14


Amazon audible and bounties which is




02:17


going to be $5 for every time you get




02:19


somebody to sign up for the bounty




02:21


program for audible so it's once again




02:24


not going to make you rich but we've




02:26


made specific videos where we plug these




02:29


audible subscriptions where I say you




02:30


know blah blah blah blah blah and by the




02:32


way I learned this from listening to a




02:35


book which I got on audible which I'll




02:37


leave a link for it down below right now




02:38


after this video so it works pretty well




02:40


in that sense but if you actually look




02:43


at these rates that you'll be getting




02:46


for Amazon Associates it's only going to




02:48


go up to 10% some of these product




02:50


categories go down to as low as 1% for




02:52


physical video games and video game




02:54


consoles you get 1% and some even 0%




02:57


obviously for gift cards it would make




02:58


much sense if you got an affiliate




03:00


Commission for those but most other




03:02


categories are roughly about 4% so yeah




03:04


you're not gonna make very much money




03:06


from this for example my camera if I




03:08


link to my camera through Amazon or this




03:10


laptop I might get 30 or 40 or 50




03:13


dollars Commission for every one that




03:14


somebody buys but it can certainly add




03:17


up over time now let me show you another




03:18


one that is a little bit different but




03:21


is one that does pay quite well and that




03:23


is actually going to be a VPN affiliate




03:27


okay so there's a couple here there's




03:28


expressvpn




03:29


or you could look at something like Nord




03:31


VPN now I like to promote Nord VPN I've




03:34


worked with them in the past they seem




03:35


to have a great team and so if we look




03:38


down on here you can just go to Noor VPN




03:40


comm slash Affiliate and they're not




03:42


paying me to say this although maybe




03:44


maybe I'll leave a link for Nord VPN if




03:46


you don't have one at the moment but for




03:48


example I'm here in Spain I'm in an air




03:50


B&B you probably notice the background




03:52


looks different and so I run a VPN with




03:55


my computer so that when I connect to




03:56


the Wi-Fi it feels a little bit safer




03:58


when you connect the Commission's for




04:01


Nord VPN can be quite significant so




04:03


just looking at this right here you can




04:04


see that for a one month offer if




04:06


somebody signs up for Nord VPN you're




04:07


gonna get a hundred percent commission




04:09


literally a hundred percent commission




04:11


for that one month offer but if you get




04:13


them to sign up for a two year offer or




04:14


I know they have a three-year offer as




04:16


well then your Commission's could be




04:18


thirty forty or fifty dollars and then




04:20


they could recur every year so this is




04:23


one that I come in with economy see




04:25


coming to my




04:26


nor VPN account because I am an




04:28


affiliate with them for my other youtube




04:29


channel and it's usually bout forty




04:31


seven dollars per sign up that everybody




04:33


is doing and it certainly adds up quite




04:35


a bit when you get forty seven dollars




04:37


per signup times hundreds or thousands




04:39


of signups that can literally be tens of




04:41


thousands of dollars I don't know if




04:42


I've quite made tens of thousands that




04:44


probably made probably in the past year




04:46


maybe eight or nine thousand dollars




04:48


just random ballpark estimate I would




04:50


have to look at the actual data from my




04:51


account this is for my primary YouTube




04:53


channel though obviously this channel is




04:54


a lot smaller at the moment so not gonna




04:56


be doing crazy numbers with Nord VPN but




04:58


it's just a really simple one that pays




05:00


pretty well alright so the next one that




05:02


I want to show you is a weber so this is




05:05


a great area to do some affiliate




05:07


marketing in is email marketing so a lot




05:10


of people who are looking to build their




05:13


online business or even just build their




05:15


email subscriptions for their local




05:16


brick-and-mortar business they have an




05:18


ice cream shop they want to build an




05:19


email list they a lot of people need to




05:21


use some type of autoresponders or




05:23


emails that that they can automatically




05:26


send out mass emails to thousands of




05:28


people you can do this through a number




05:29


of different programs one of them might




05:31


come to mind is something like MailChimp




05:33


maybe you've heard of that they don't




05:34


have an affiliate program it's not




05:37


really it's it's not something that you




05:38


can really use to make large amounts of




05:40


money with but Aweber is another one




05:42


that's actually based out of




05:43


Pennsylvania so fairly close to my house




05:45


but they have thousands of customers




05:47


they pull in millions of dollars per




05:49


year and they have an affiliate program




05:50


if you want to find a way to promote it




05:53


to get people to sign up for these




05:55


autoresponders to get people to sign up




05:56


for this so I'll leave a link to this




05:58


down below as well but their affiliate




06:00


program pays about 30% commission and




06:02


hey I want to leave you with this as




06:04


well that I want to remind you that with




06:06


any of these affiliate programs what I




06:08


found is that a lot of these are




06:09


negotiable so if you are an affiliate




06:11


for any of these companies and you're




06:14


pulling in large numbers and I've done




06:16


this in the past where if you're pulling




06:18


in a lot of traffic for this company you




06:20


can call them up and say hey I know




06:22


you're giving me 30% commission right




06:23


now but in order for me to continue to




06:26


promote this you have a lot of other




06:27


competitors they're offering higher




06:28


rates I might like those competitors




06:30


better so I'm gonna need you to give me




06:32


not 30% anymore I want 40% I want 50%




06:34


and I see people do this all the time




06:36


and it works and pretty often so




06:39


don't be afraid to ask for a higher




06:41


Commission especially if you are driving




06:42


a large amount of traffic to that




06:45


company as an affiliate so Aweber really




06:48


cool one that I wanted to throw in here




06:49


let's talk about the next one here which




06:51


is going to be to buddy so this is great




06:54


for if you have a YouTube channel this




06:57


is really kind of fits into this niche




06:58


here but to buddy actually pays 50




07:01


percent commissions for their affiliate




07:04


program this is a plugin that pretty




07:06


much all youtubers or most youtubers




07:08


have either one of two things they'll




07:09


have to buddy or they'll have vid IQ




07:11


when they go onto YouTube so let me just




07:13


show an example here




07:14


when I go into YouTube and if you're not




07:16


familiar with two buddy and your thing




07:17


about starting a YouTube channel I would




07:18


definitely check it out download it but




07:21


going back to what is most important the




07:23


50% Commission on saying that you got




07:25


the star package here for $19 a month




07:27


that is eight dollars and fifty cents or




07:30


no I can't even do math is $9.50 per




07:33


month that you get every single month so




07:35


basically a free netflix subscription




07:37


every single month for every person then




07:39


you get to sign up for two buddy scale




07:41


it up get a hundred people a thousand




07:43


people to do that and you can be pulling




07:44


in thousands of dollars per month really




07:46


recurring from this so every single




07:48


month you're getting this recurring




07:50


commission from them but if you're not




07:52


familiar with too buddy I'll show you




07:53


exactly what it is just on the side here




07:55


and then we'll move on to the next one




07:56


so for example when I go onto YouTube I




07:58


have this plug-in that comes in on the




07:59


side see on the right side of my screen




08:01


here this here is two buddy if it loads




08:04


see he says video Linux and it shows you




08:06


how many comments




08:08


they're like ratio shows you their best




08:10


practices it shows you their tags right




08:12


here in the side so it is a really cool




08:13


tool that I actually like to promote as




08:15


well for my affiliate marketing




08:18


adventures and the next one is going to




08:20


be teachable so teachable is great for




08:23


if you want to do some affiliate




08:25


marketing for people who are looking to




08:26


start courses I know I have some friends




08:29


who are digital nomads and they like to




08:31


promote this because a lot of people who




08:32


are digital nomads maybe they have some




08:34


type of online product or they say that




08:36


if you want to be a digital Nomad you




08:38


can consider creating an online course




08:40


an online product and a great way to do




08:41


that is through something like teachable




08:43


I have a lot of friends who make online




08:45


courses through teachable I think the




08:47


base rate from what I saw last was about




08:49


99 dollars so if you get 30% recurring




08:52


Commission on




08:53


this this could be quite significant




08:55


that is about $30 per month that you can




08:57


get for being an affiliate for teachable




08:59


you can see how this adds up quite




09:01


quickly so that is teachable it is like




09:04


I said it's going to be kind of an




09:06


online course platform if you want to




09:07


create if I want to create an online




09:09


course of how to cook and you want to be




09:12


as good of a chef as me which I'm a




09:14


terrible chef I know how to make like




09:15


three things but if you wanted to be as




09:17


good of a chef as me and I made a course




09:18


I can make it on teachable and I could




09:20


promote it to you without having to use




09:22


something like you to me or without




09:24


having to like it sell you physical DVDs




09:26


it's sort of this hosting platform for




09:29


online courses and then let's talk about




09:31


another one here which is going to be




09:33


Shopify maybe you saw this one coming




09:35


but hey they pay a lot of money in




09:37


commissions the average according to the




09:40


website is about $58 for each user who




09:42


signs up for a paid plan for for Shopify




09:45


some of these affiliate commissions can




09:47


literally be thousands of dollars I'm




09:49


somebody signing up for the most premium




09:50


services through Shopify but this is a




09:53


great obviously a great niche especially




09:55


if you're kind of in that ecommerce or




09:57


dropshipping niche whether you're doing




09:59


a YouTube channel or a website or some




10:01


other way to find traffic for affiliate




10:03


marketing by the way we have videos on




10:05


that as well on how to find traffic for




10:07


affiliate marketing hopefully later this




10:09


week or next week I'm going to put out a




10:10


video about how you can actually use




10:12


paid traffic to get affiliate




10:14


commissions get conversions with that




10:16


it's gonna be very very interesting or




10:17


just show you how to run ads again some




10:19


very competitive keywords too to




10:21


hopefully make as much money as possible




10:23


sorry I'm in Spain and there's




10:25


motorcycles driving around on the




10:27


streets everywhere all right to the next




10:28


things here that I'm going to show you




10:29


they're not necessarily actual




10:31


individual products but more so




10:33


databases or platforms that you can use




10:36


to find thousands of different affiliate




10:39


programs and products that you can




10:40


actually promote so I wish somebody told




10:42


me about these earlier because it took




10:44


me a while to actually find them but




10:46


when I was looking for products to




10:48


promote I was thinking okay how can I




10:49


find affiliate program I would go on to




10:51


that individual company's website if I




10:53


liked using this one software I would




10:55


email that company say hey you have an




10:57


affiliate program I found there's easier




10:58


ways to do that one of them is through




11:00


CJ dot-com so this used to be Commission




11:02


Junction is probably still stands for




11:04


Commission Junction but they shortened




11:05


it to Jo




11:06


c.j this has been around for a very long




11:08


time literally well over 20 years I




11:10


believe they started way way far back in




11:13


the past probably older than me to be




11:15


honest and so they have thousands of




11:17


different brands on here a lot of these




11:18


let's just scroll through this room very




11:20


quickly we're at 1-800 we haven't even




11:22


gotten to a yet and you see so many




11:24


different brands a lot of these you've




11:26


probably recognized as well 23andme




11:27


right you probably recognize some of




11:29


these different brands here that you can




11:31


start to promote through this platform




11:33


and what's great about it is that if you




11:35


are promoting 10 different brands it's




11:38


all under the umbrella of CJ so you get




11:41


one big fat check at the end of the




11:42


month rather than trying to track like




11:44


20 different affiliate programs through




11:47


each one of these different companies it




11:48


just turns into a mess from what I found




11:50


and it's nice to have everything under




11:52


one umbrella so I love using CJ for




11:54


finding brands you can go up here and




11:56


you can search for certain categories if




11:58


this loads is Wi-Fi is a little bit slow




12:00


but you can go over here and you can




12:01


search for specific categories so we can




12:04


go to categories and write and let's say




12:05


that we are in business and we want to




12:08


search for that then we can just search




12:09


for it and we can find all kinds of




12:11


different things within here that we can




12:13


find right and a lot of these like I




12:15


said we probably recognize ok so this is




12:17


really really cool this is one of my




12:19


favorite ones and another one that is




12:21


equally as great as CJ from my personal




12:25


experience and the interactions that




12:27


I've had with both of them is actually




12:28


impact radius now I think they actually




12:30


just shortened it to impact because it's




12:32


just impact comm I don't have my login




12:34


info at the moment I wish I did and so I




12:37


can't login to show you the actual




12:39


platform and but once again they have




12:40


hundreds or probably thousands of




12:42


different products on there and




12:44


different companies on there a lot of




12:46


the recognizable brands so I would




12:48


suggest creating that create an account




12:50


for CJ comm and for impact comm check




12:53


out the brands on there see if there's




12:54


something that matches with your




12:55


personal brand or with your business or




12:58


with your affiliate marketing ventures




12:59


that you're looking for and I think you




13:01


can find something really really cool




13:02


and one other one that we're gonna just




13:04


very quickly kind of touch on is




13:06


Clickbank




13:07


I've made a video on Clickbank how to




13:08


advertise for Clickbank this one's a




13:11


little bit I'm gonna say sketchy I don't




13:13


like using the word sketchy I feel like




13:15


it's a weird word but there's a lot of




13:16


products on Clickbank that you just want




13:18


to make sure that you do your due




13:19


on them to make sure that they are




13:20


legitimate products they're certainly




13:23


legitimate products on there just make




13:25


sure that you're really kind of sifting




13:26


through them because they're I'm not I'm




13:28


not gonna lie there's a lot of crap on




13:29


Clickbank especially in 2020 in terms of




13:32


the quality of the product so just kind




13:34


of sift through it a little bit but it




13:35


is one that you know you can still make




13:36


money from and I actually still get




13:38


checks from Clickbank every single month




13:40


from products that was promoting years

ago that are still paying dividends from




13:44


that okay so those are the biggest ones




13:46


and I want to leave you with this one




13:48


final thing there's one final affiliate




13:51


program product and it is that I want




13:54


you to realize that you can literally




13:56


get any brand or company just about any




13:58


brand or company to make an affiliate




14:00


program for you




14:01


so I've seen people do this in the past




14:03


I have friends who have reached out to




14:04


companies and I've done this myself as




14:06


well reach out to companies say hey you




14:08


have an affiliate program they say no we




14:09


don't and then you say okay well you




14:11


know I'm getting three or four five




14:13


million traffic hits per month millions




14:16


of views per month whatever it might be




14:17


if you have a large amount of traffic




14:19


and say I'm willing to promote your




14:21


company can you make an affiliate




14:22


program in nine times out of ten these




14:24


companies will literally do that for you




14:26


and you can start making money from them




14:28


so personally what I found is especially




14:30


in the finance space which is what my




14:31


main channel has four hundred and fifty




14:34


thousand subscribers they think at the




14:35


moment but from that channel there were




14:38


a lot of different brands or for example




14:40


banks financial institutions that I




14:42


wanted to promote but I couldn't figure




14:44


out a way to do it because you couldn't




14:46


just go on to CJ comm or you couldn't




14:48


just email the bank and say hey I want




14:50


to be an affiliate for your bank because




14:51


these are very large financial




14:53


institutions so what you have to do is




14:55


find a way to get extremely high amounts




14:58


of traffic and then suddenly and they're




15:00


going to come to you or they're going to




15:02


be much more willing to work with you to




15:04


the point where now in the financial




15:06


industry I've kind of been able to open




15:08


the door finally after three years on




15:10


YouTube I've been able to open the door




15:12


to the financial products that I can




15:14


start promoting like high interest




15:16


savings accounts credit cards a lot of




15:18


these other ones that I can get




15:19


commissions from that most people can't




15:21


get right off the bat and that's that's




15:23


not to brag I'm telling you this took




15:25


literally three years of putting in a




15:27


lot of work to get to the point where




15:29


now finally some of these companies are




15:31


allowing me to promote their products




15:33


I can get 150 dollars for credit card




15:35


signups every time somebody clicks on a




15:37


link for a credit card and sends them to




15:39


specific websites so that is what I want




15:41


to leave you with that as long as you're




15:43


getting a lot of traffic you can




15:44


literally promote anything they will




15:45


work with you if you're getting a large




15:47


amounts of traffic so thanks for
