8 Affiliate Marketing Niches to Start Making Serious Money With
So, if you’re looking to make money online, now is the time to get started.
There are a virtually unlimited number of internet money-making methods. You could create videos, blog, sell crafts… the list is endless.
In my opinion though, given its ease and proven record, few online moneymaking methods are better than affiliate marketing. This is especially true with 10% of all purchases made in the United States happening online. That number is growing every year.
With affiliate marketing, you get to market other people’s products, help them generate sales, and collect a commission on those sales you facilitated. The best part is, you get to sell stuff without having to deal with any inventory!
To get started with affiliate marketing, all you need is an internet connection and a solid niche. Below, I break down what affiliate marketing niches are and which ones you should focus your efforts on!
What Is an Affiliate Marketing Niche?
When you market other people’s products online, it’s recommended that you build your marketing funnels around particular niches.
Niches in marketing are like categories. For example, if you marketed products in the organic dog food space, your niche would be organic dog food. If you market products in the plus-sized fashion space, your niche would be plus-sized fashion.
Now that you have an idea of what a niche is, let’s dig into some of the most evergreen affiliate marketing niches that people like you have found the most success with.
Love is a broad category that encompasses a lot of extremely lucrative affiliate marketing niches.
Because love never goes out of style.
Falling in love, dating, sex and everything in between is baked into humanity’s DNA. That means there will never be a shortage of customers around products that make people’s love lives better.
When you’re thinking about what kinds of things to market within the love niche, start with products and services around dating. You can then branch out to things having to do with sex and reconciliation (winning a loved one back).
Fitness products sell like hotcakes online. That’s due largely to the fact that the media, for better or for worst, has embedded in most people’s minds an optimal look. Being “beautiful” has consequently become the quest of men and women alike and they’re willing to spend a lot of money to meet their goals.
That’s where your marketing efforts come in.
Exploring affiliate marketing niches like weight loss products, hair growth, gym memberships, “get fit quick” products, and more can be extremely lucrative.
3. Dog and Cat Products
An overwhelming amount of Americans own dogs and cats. Of those people, many spend a lot of their income ensuring that their pets are healthy and comfortable.
Given that reality, selling high-quality toys and pet foods online can mean a steady income stream for your affiliate marketing efforts almost immediately.
I would recommend having separate marketing channels for your dog and cat products. Mixing the two could cause distrust among enthusiasts.
4. Money and Wealth
Everyone wants to get rich and people are willing to spend a lot of money to figure out how to do it.
Selling products that revolve around making money online, investing strategies, and lucrative career advice can all garner you a fast following. Also, consider offering products that are aimed at building businesses.
Everybody needs a lawyer for something. Giving people the legal advice they need on your marketing channels and then connecting them with firms like Bond & Taylor Injury Lawyers for compensation is a way that tons of affiliate marketers build their fortunes.
If you have a knack for law, promoting and selling legal products and services can be one of the highest ROI affiliate marketing niches you can explore given that legal services are typically costly.
Tech is getting more popular among the global community which means more people are looking for advice, tips, and tricks revolving around the latest and greatest products. If you can provide that information through your marketing channels and push readers to buy high-end phones, computers, and other things, you’ll make a pretty penny.
The only downside to leaning on technology as one of your affiliate marketing niches is that competition in this space can be fierce.
7. Smoking Products
It’s funny that both health and smoking products have both made it onto this top affiliate marketing niches list. That just goes to show you how polarized people’s tastes are.
With the resurgence of smoking through vapes and e-cigarettes, more people than ever are buying smoking-related paraphernalia online.
An affiliate marketer who starts targeting vapers and e-cigarette enthusiasts can experience a tremendous amount of success in today’s market, fast.
8. Subscription Boxes
Last but not least on our affiliate marketing niches list are subscription boxes.
Subscription boxes are a type of business that has really picked up traction over the last decade. Basically, people subscribe to boxes across a variety of niches and every month they get a mystery box of items having to do with their niche of choice.
For example, if someone subscribed to a monthly beauty box, they’d receive a box of cosmetics in the mail every month.
As an affiliate marketer, you can curate subscription boxes on your marketing channels and promote ones to your readers that you feel are the best. Whenever one of your readers buys into your box recommendations, you’ll receive a commission!
