hey everybody this is robert blake helping you create something awesome today welcome back to the channel today we are going to round up the 10 best and high paying affiliate marketing programs that i could think of some of these are my personal favorites and yes i know i know everybody makes these passive income and how to make money online videos the good news is i'm one of the only people who makes these videos and then doesn't sell you a 1 000 affiliate marketing course so you're welcome and again i kid i kid god help us if we lose our sense of humor in 2020 right well like i said all joking aside i really do like this topic because it actually has impacted me uh when i was like a kid in my 20s i used to make like six dollars an hour in the mall back in my day everything was harder and we had to earn our money the hard way by sitting in air conditioning in the mall selling from the checkout like i'm playing with you guys again but i went from making like six dollars an hour as a broke college kid to being able in my 30s over a decade later to be able to earn uh you know a six-figure income affiliate marketing played a role in that uh youtube played a role in that freelancing played a role in that and of course online sales played a role in that and so what i try to do with this youtube channel is i try to actually show you realistic and practical things i did and tell you how long a lot of this stuff takes what you have to invest up front because again there is a common sense approach to doing a lot of this stuff there is no way to make money in your sleep overnight it doesn't happen it's going to mean front loading effort it's going to mean doing hard work now reaping benefit from it later that's the way it works so with that in mind let's jump into the video and get into my 10 best affiliate marketing programs the ones that i think actually pay the best because i know that's what you guys came here for so affiliate program number one is teachable teachable as an online course and coaching platform i actually have a great relationship with them and i actually have some future products that i'm going to be using their platform to develop and what i will say about teachable is they have a 30 recurring commission program this is actually really strong because you want those recurring commissions so you can start making more automated income something that feels a lot more passive once you front loaded a little bit of work and the good news is that they actually have a 30-day cookie window so anybody who clicks on your affiliate link within a 30-day period of them clicking you will actually get the commission for that you will get credit for that and since teachable's um platform starts at 39 a month and goes all the way up to 499 dollars a month that is 30 commissions can be powerful and that can add up also as someone upgrades that means that your revenue is going to increase so would definitely recommend that this be in your top list if you're looking for strong affiliate programs that have a high payout affiliate program number two is amazon amazon does not offer recurring commissions and amazon commissions are between one percent and 10 depending on the product category and worse than that it is a 24 hour cookie that's it so why do i recommend amazon there are two reasons one if somebody uses your amazon link anything they purchase within that 24 hour period is actually counted toward your commissions so that can actually be really useful if people are doing impulse buying that can add up for you the other thing is i think what's underrated with amazon and i've done videos talking about the best tactics for this is that they offer bounty commissions where they pay you a flat rate for people signing up for free trials of things like audible and kindle as well as amazon prime with audible for example if any of you wanted to buy two audio books you could pay zero dollars and you could sign up for a free audible trial you can actually use mine in the link down below when you sign up for that you're going to get two audio books and you keep them forever even if you cancel audible before you start paying the 15 a month for it and so that is how the commission structure works you can offer something that's free that cost your audience zero dollars because they incentivize it it's a good business model for them and you would get a five dollar bounty on audible and they have different ones for amazon prime for deliveries so someone can get 30 days of prime two-day free shipping and that could actually save them some money and again if they sign up for these free trials you get a commission you get a bounty so between the fact that in 24 hours the add to cart could just pile up and pile up and you could get really good commissions off of that you also have these bounty programs and that's why i think that amazon deserves to be on the list for top 10 affiliate programs number three is bluehost bluehost is a web hosting company so it's for anyone who wants to start a wordpress blog or to build their own website it's one of the website builders that i recommend and one of the hosting companies i recommend and our audience does actually get a significant discount if you want to use our affiliate link to start your own website and do affiliate marketing but my pitch on that aside they offer 65 commissions at the start and as you progress you can actually go to higher and higher tiers so that is the first set of good news here second set of good news is there is a 45 cookie window here so again someone clicks on that link even if they decide to buy 45 days out you are credited for that commission and so these are not recurring commissions there are web hosting companies that offer those but the initial bounty commission and the fact that you can move up in your tiering makes this so attractive that i think i have to recommend it to you and i think that when you look at all the web hosting companies out there all of them have good reviews all of them have bad reviews but if you look at it from the perspective of if you're here in the us and you're looking to offer somebody the opportunity to have us customer service then bluehost makes a lot of sense in terms of a web hosting affiliate partner affiliate program number four is fiverr now i know i've made harsh videos four or five years ago about fiverr but the platform in the program has changed over the last four or five years i still have positives and negatives about it i have no shortage of things i can complain about when it comes to any online platform and that being said we've actually used it to outsource some really menial tasks so you know my team team roberto we have used people on fiverr and on upwork before the reason that i think the fiverr affiliate program could be good for a lot of you is because there's a lot of things i didn't even know about this affiliate program um because i haven't recommended it that way in the past i've just told people how to become freelancers on fiverr and how to hire people on fiverr i didn't even actually consider the affiliate program and the thing about that is this if you know anybody that is trying to outsource tasks and this is actually especially lucrative for like if you know people who are content creators on youtube or streamers on twitch and they need some custom work done if you actually refer people on fiverr you get a 10 bounty plus a 10 rev share with the fiverr hybrid program so that's actually really beneficial and if you know people who are trying to become freelancers if they go through any of the five or learn courses you get a 30 commission on that and then they have the fiverr pro tier and with the fiverr pro tier you could be looking at i believe 10 to 50 bounties if anybody decides to hire someone on fiverr pro just depending on the price that you know we're talking about for contracting their services so since they have a variety of offerings that you can get commissions on with that i think it's actually a pretty strong program and so i'm definitely going to recommend you look into that as for fiverr it does have a 30-day cookie so if somebody decides to look at outsourcing or learn to be a freelancer and they use your fiverr affiliate link then you get those bounties even if they do it within 30 days of clicking so definitely worth looking into affiliate marketing program number five is convertkit convertkit is an email marketing software it's software as a service and you know what that means recurring affiliate commissions recurring affiliate missions in perpetuity i love that so much because it's again truly automated at that point once you make the sale then the income keeps generating coming in and the good news with this is with email marketing when somebody's email list grows the amount of money they spend on that email list also grows which means this is one of the few affiliate programs that has recurring commissions but also has a scalable upside and so with this one i actually use convertkit for my email marketing for uh the awesome squad newsletter i actually use it for the email marketing in my business with awesome creator academy and so i can tell you from experience the automation side of convertkit makes it worth it to anybody who buys it my good friend pat flynn from smart passive income actually is the one who put me on to this and i was using mailchimp before that great software with a free tier but convertkit recently just started offering a free tier as well and they kind of use the dropbox model where if you refer people then you get um you know higher levels while still within that free tier so this is actually something that i think is very powerful for you guys in terms of being able to generate you know close to truly passive income with recurring commissions if you know anybody who's in the online business space or needs to start a newsletter getting them onto convertkit even the free version of convertkit can be powerful because if they convert you know pun intended over from the free version to the paid version you still get credit for those commissions convertkit has a 30-day cookie and it starts at 29 a month for the paid version so again if people get in on the free version not even a free trial just the free version of convertkit and then they move over to the paid version and as their list grows the income and that 30 percent grows so again this definitely has earned its place in my top 10 when it comes to affiliate marketing programs affiliate marketing program number six is kajabi which i actually use for my business awesome creator academy uh kajabi has been great i've been using it since summer of 2017 and we've actually done about roughly a quarter million in sales since then so i'm really happy with it kajabi is for coaching courses and membership sites and it's probably the all-in-one platform there are a lot of these different platforms like teachable but kajabi is the closest to being like an all-in-one inclusive and that's why it's also a little bit more expensive the good news for you is that that means the 30 percent recurring commissions are worth a little bit more someone going into the lowest tier on kajabi would resent would represent a about 45 a month recurring commission for you and if they ever upgrade of course that number increases so this is probably one of the better recurring affiliate programs that exist right now hijabi is another program that has a 30-day window in terms of the cookie but it also has another bonus that i have to tell you about that separates it from everyone else pretty much for roughly every 50 uh plus i believe it's 50 and then 100 and so on uh for all these different tiers you actually get a 500 a month bonus and what that means is if you signed up 50 people under you as an active kajabi affiliate as long as there are 50 active kajabi users who have signed up using your affiliate link and they remain using kajabi as a service you would get a bonus of 500 a month extra on top of your regular 30 affiliate sales if you go to a hundred people a month they give you another 500 a month bonus so at that point you can see how this is one of the best affiliate programs out there right now if you are in the space of helping people build online businesses this is really powerful and i definitely can recommend them uh and if you are trying to build your online business obviously you can use my kajabi link in the description down below and move me slightly closer to my 500 bonus the tesla awaits and again these are jokes i'm kind of making fun of make money online stuff because god help us if we lose our sense of humor in 2020.

Affiliate program number seven is wix wix is a direct competitor of squarespace they are one of the online website building tools that are for people who are non-tech savvy and i think that's actually important to mention them i actually have had friends family and clients who have used both wix and squarespace wix obviously has the better affiliate program of the two but there are people who just have a preference a primary example is that one of my cousins actually likes using squarespace you know he does some stuff with music and that's what he uses but my sister actually prefers wix she didn't like using squarespace and she thought it was too complicated for her i feel like they're about the same but people have their preferences with these and so uh if you know somebody that is not tech savvy but also wants to build a website maybe somebody who's a content creator for example or somebody that's a little bit older then i would definitely recommend wix as something that you could steer them toward wix also has a 100 bounty commission so it's flat rate for their you know premium websites here is the funny thing though um i still have to confirm this but i believe that with their free websites if somebody converts to the premium and they sign up with your link you still get that i have to confirm that but i believe that that's the way that that works so even if they sign up and they get a free wix website if they go to premium i believe that you actually still get the commission for that now the other thing that you need to know about wix is you do need to know about the cookies wix like most of these programs has a 30-day cookie window and when it comes to web hosting that's what you should expect like i said bluehost has a 45 day window so if you're doing a web hosting roundup you should probably know which ones um have you know longer and shorter cookie windows because i think that'd be important to you but here's something else you need to know is about their payout commission structures theirs actually has a ceiling before you can get paid out it has to be 300 that you've earned in commissions before you can be paid out and that does roll over so don't worry they're not keeping your money from you whenever you hit 300 you will be able to be paid out and so you need to know that before you start doing this affiliate program if you're expecting to just be able to cash out on the first 100 it does not work that way uh it's not youtube where they do it at a hundred dollars it's 300 so i thought it was just important that you know that in the details affiliate program number eight is sem rush a lot of you have probably never heard of this this is something that i actually used to use when i worked as an internet marketer at a company we actually still use it for my business today and a lot of my clients use it i recommend this to a lot of my business coaching clients because it's one of the most powerful seo tools that has pretty much ever existed and the good news for you as affiliate marketers is that it has 40 percent commissions that's right it has 40 commissions and it has one other little absurd thing that i don't know how they do it i don't even know if this is like i don't even know if this is accurate but like i don't know how they do this sem rush says that they have some absurd 10-year cookie and i don't know how you do that i i don't understand it i'm just quoting you what the information says in my notes and what's on their website here and so a 10-year cookie there you go but 40 commissions and it is an seo tool i recommend that with a lot of these tools by the way if i haven't said this up front before uh recommend tools that you actually use and that you have familiarity with and that you think are valuable to your audience to your clients to your customers um don't do something just because it has a really great commission structure to it i think that that should go without saying but i've seen too many videos where people don't call that out and so there you go do it the right way i'm gonna do a whole video about that let's do a video on uh 10 affiliate marketing mistakes and that's probably going to be like the first one that we go with but yeah check out sem rush and see if it's something that you can honestly recommend and if you like using it affiliate marketing program number nine is selfie selfie actually is really good for digital downloads my friend peter mckinnon uses it to actually sell his sound effects packs his let's presets for photographers and some of his other presets for adobe premiere editors uh like i said they have a 90-day cookie which is awesome and so uh definitely worthwhile if you know anybody that makes digital assets just like some of our other affiliate programs including sem rush they have a recurring commission i'm not sure if i told you guys that the 40 on sem rush is recurring sell fi has a 25 recurring commission and so um i think that this is another one of these really good options but the good news with selfie is it's very affordable it's very low barrier to entry and so this is something i'm trying to get more content creators to do in addition to things like selling merchandise with teespring content creators could benefit by selling directly to their audience and so if you can recommend selfie to some people that you know in that situation that want to sell digital downloads templates uh things like that then it can be really practical it can fit within their budget and can help them start making a little bit more money and so that's why i recommend it and then with the recurring commission structure i think that's definitely a win and it's earned its place on this list and so finally last and definitely not least affiliate marketing program number 10 uh the one that i've been the most successful with is tubebuddy tubebuddy for those of you don't know is a youtube browser plug-in it's a chrome plug-in that actually helps not only with youtube seo but productivity and a lot of other great tools that just save content creators time i don't know if you guys know this but literally for most content creators maybe not for my style of content but for most content creators they put over an hour into every minute of footage that you see on a youtube video again people who don't make the style of content that i make that being said tubebuddy is something i've been using and recommending for the last four years and as an affiliate i've done about a quarter million dollars in affiliate commission sales with them i am a super affiliate uh earning a 50 commission and they have this really great structure that allows you to earn 30 40 and 50 commissions through tubebuddy and there are a lot of details here to break down that made me a successful affiliate in fact i'll be doing a dedicated video specifically about how i managed to accomplish this and why uh tubebuddy is a great partner and why i've been pretty much averaging five thousand six thousand dollars a month in recurring commissions um every month as a two-bit affiliate and i see that only going further in the future so tubebuddy's commission starts at 30 recurring lifetime commissions as long as somebody's using tubebuddy and if you get 50 people to install not even buy but install even the free version of tubebuddy you get bumped up to a vip affiliate earning 40 recurring commissions then if you get 250 people to sign up and install tubebuddy again even the free version then you get to move into being a super affiliate like me and earning 50 commissions tubebuddy is mad affordable most of the plans at the beginning are under 10 a month and then of course they go up and it's affordable and accessible for content creators and so one of the things that i really like about it is it's a company that is for creators and by creators and they're really part of the community and that makes it very easy to recommend them and with the free tier people are able to try it out and they're able to see what they like about it now again this is one of the only ones on this list where i don't know how long the cookie lasts but the good news is that if you get anyone to sign up for the free tier of tubebuddy when they do go to the paid tier you do get those commissions for the lifetime of their account and for the most part people who use tubebuddy don't leave tubebuddy in general this is true with software as a service which is why software as a service recurring affiliate programs are so powerful and are really the closest thing that i think we'll see to truly passive income outside of you know automated traffic through online paid advertising where it's a pay your way in appliance i think in terms of something that's reasonable that um you know recurring affiliate commissions through software as a service through evergreen content is justified in being able to call passive income or what i call automated income like i keep telling people making money in your sleep doesn't happen overnight and you have to come by it earnestly and you have to come by it honestly and it's going to take you front loading work and effort i didn't get to go from making six dollars an hour at the mall to then being in my 30s and being able to make six figures a year i didn't have that journey overnight it was a long and arduous process that required sacrifices and i did it by being um and not the humble brag but tougher than tough and smarter than smart and i did it all square okay so when it comes down to it if you want to do this you have to figure out how to do it the right way and in the right order and it's my hope that my content is showing you a realistic way to approach this i also don't think that just what works for me is going to necessarily work for everybody and that's why eventually one of the things i'd like to do is explore bringing people onto the channel that have different perspectives and have different experiences from mine that can help you guys so um if there's somebody that you want to recommend for that let me know in the comment section question of the day which of the affiliate programs that i mentioned today is the most interesting to you which ones you're going to try out let me know in the comments and just a quick reminder everything i mentioned is linked down below and those are my affiliate links properly disclosed uh hey ftc how's it going and so yeah um you guys can check those out and obviously any of those that you click on if you decide to buy anything helps support the content oh without buying a thousand dollar course anyway like this video if you like it don't forget to subscribe again those are just jokes i'm not picking on anybody who sells courses as always you guys thanks so very much for watching and don't forget go out there and create something awesome today take care
