    List of Best Affiliate Programs for WordPress Niche

    WordPress is not only just a CMS,  but it’s a means of living for many. Many developers and freelancers are making a living out of WordPress, by selling Themes, plugins, services or consultancy. For those, who are not into development, that can always earn from WordPress by promoting products. In simple words, you will endorse somebody product with your special tracking link (Affiliate link), and you will get commission out of it.

    Learn : What is Affiliate marketing & FAQ

    Specially, if you are blogging on WordPress, you can easily recommend the premium product that you are using (Most of the premium WordPress products have an affiliate program), and when a user buys product from your referral, you will be making handsome income out of it. This could be from $1-$500 per product.

    Here, I will be sharing some of the top affiliate programs for WordPress bloggers. Most of these affiliate programs are open for everyone, so you can join-in all of these affiliate programs, and promote one which suits your taste and style. You can refer to my guide on “how to promote Affiliate products on your blog“, to get a better understanding of, how you can promote these WordPress premium products.

    WordPress affiliate products can easily be classified majorly into following categories:

    • WordPress Premium plugins
    • WordPress Premium Themes

    • WordPress backup-management products

    Before, I share the list, here are few things which you need to know:

    1. Get a PayPal account: Most of these affiliate programs offer payment via PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPal account, Get one now.
    2. If Your Product is not listed here : If you are using any particular premium WordPress product, and you don’t see the affiliate program overview in this list. Simply Google “Product Name + Affiliate program” in Google search, and you will find the details of aff. program for that product.
    3. Join All: Joining all these affiliate program is easy, and free. I suggest you to join all, and get into their mailing list. These ways, you will receive latest coupon codes, promotional matter, and other useful insight about the product. You may not be promoting all the products, but the affiliate promotion informations you will get via these Emailers, will be of top-notch.

    So, lets get on with our list, and find out some of the popular WordPress affiliate program, which you can promote on your blog for handsome income.

    WordPress Themes Affiliate program:

    Unlike old days, now there are tons of WordPress premium themes affiliate programs out there. I have worked with few of them for my niche WordPress theme blog, and for ShoutMeLoud. Based on my experience with them, I’m sharing some of the recommended one here:

    Elegant Themes Affiliate program:

    Elegant themes affiliate program

    Elegant WordPress themes are one of the easiest, and highly convertible aff. program for WordPress bloggers. Despite of not so active active promotion, I have made over $3,200 with their Affiliate program. The reason for good conversion of their products is because of low-price. They offer 86 premium themes for $39 (Various categories), and themes are regularly updates. Here are the key features of their program:

    • You earn 50% off each sale
    • You will get commission for yearly renewal ( LIfe time affiliate)
    • Payout via PayPal

    Join Elegant Themes Aff. program

    Genesis Themes:

    Genesis Affiliate progra

    Genesis is one of the top WordPress theme framework out there, and many bloggers swear by it. Undoubtedly, with the sad downfall of Thesis theme, Genesis turned out to be most popular theme framework. Unlike other theme network, Genesis is priced on the higher side, and is used by professional bloggers, or serious online businesses. Genesis Framework and skins are quite easy to promote, as company has a great brand-name in the marker, and with a quick promotion, you can earn huge.

    • You will get 35% commission on every sale.
    • 2 Tier-Affiliate program
    • Program is managed by ShareAsale and payout via Bank transfer or ACH.
    • 60 days cookies.

    Join StudioPress Affiliate program

    Thesis Theme Affiliate program:

    Thesis is not the same theme framework, that I used to promote. With the launch of Thesis 2.0, they have disappointed the whole Thesis community. Though, developers still love Thesis 2.0, and is still one of the top theme product for WordPress blogs. Thesis is recommended for users, who are not shy of the coding, Personally, I don’t find Thesis to be a best fit for end users, who doesn’t like to code. But, being a popular Premium product, Thesis affiliate program still works out great. If you are one of those bloggers who write about Theme development, and customisation, Thesis theme will be a great product to promote.

    • 33% commission on sales.
    • 60 days return cookie
    • Managed by ShareAsale.

    Join Thesis Affiliate program

    FameThemes:

    FameThemes Affilaites

    FameThemes is a relatively new WordPress theme marketplace, but I have noticed high conversions on their landing page. Recently, I have promoted Codelight responsive theme from FameThemes, and this theme converted really well. Their product is top-notch, and you can easily earn good bucks by promoting them.

    • 50% commission on every bill.

    These are some of the working themes aff. program for me. There are many more that you can join, for ex: Themeforest affiliate program, Theme-junkie affiliate program.

    WordPress plugins affiliate program:

    When it comes to premium WordPress plugins, list is endless. I have promoted few in the past to earn few 1000$, but there is not a single plugin that you can stick for long. WordPress premium plugins marketplace is very competitive, and every day, a new or better product pops out.  So, if you are trying to get into plugins promotion niche, you need to be active in terms of knowing what’s the best, and how do they work. Instead of referring to direct product, I will share the marketplace which you should join, to earn from plugins affiliate.

    Tip: As I mentioned, WordPress plugins have limited marketplace, and you need to sign-up individually for most of the product. A majority of plugins are sold via Clickbank,  which is easier to link to. You should search for product affiliate program manually, or find a high-selling plugin to promote it.

    ClickBank:

    Clickbank WordPress marketplace

    ClickBank is one of the most popular affiliate marketplace out there, and a hub for affiliate marketers. Joining Clickbank is easy, and once you are signed up, you will have your clickbank user name. (ex: denharsh). Now, most of premium WordPress plugins affiliate program is managed by Clickbank, and you need to get the hop link. Here is a quick example:

    Instabuilder plugin aff. program is managed by Clickbank (CB), and on their affiliate page, you will see link like: http://clickbankusername.stheresia.hop.clickbank.net

    Simply replace, clickbankusername with your user-name, and your affiliate link will become like: http://denharsh.stheresia.hop.clickbank.net. This is going to be the same for all the themes, and plugins which are managed by Clickbank.

    Join Clickbank

    Warrior Forum:

    I have already talked about Warriorforum affiliate program earlier, and I’m not going to get into details about the same. I picked EasyWPSEO, and few other plugins from their aff. program, and it converted great. If you missed my earlier guide, you can refer to below mentioned guide

    JVZoo:

    JVZoo Affiliate marketplace

    JVZoo is another affiliate marketplace like Clickbank, Commission junctions, and is widely used by Internet marketers. You will find some amazing WordPress products out there (Plugins & Themes), and which you can easily promote. Most of these products are launched by Internet marketers, who knows what we as a blogger require, and that makes the product very useful. Joining their program is easy, and free.

    I thinking after money-making niche wordpress niche has highest number of affiliate products but to reach to the level of wordpress pro you need at least two years of extensive blogging and after that you would be able to write impressive reviews and people would be buying your recommended product after considering you authority in your niche

    Even though Clickbank is the best market place to pick products and sell them in ease, I think being a Theme affiliate is a great idea too.
    And if you’re promoting the Theme or Product which your audience know that you’re using, it’ll really boost the sales. Right?

    Well put article once again Harsh. Thanks.

    One tip which I have learned being an affiliate marketer is: Don’t limit yourself to few or specific products. Diversify your products.
    In this case, we are talking WordPress niche: And a good idea is to add plugins or other products too.
    On your point: If you create a WordPress blog just about themes, indeed it will work great… (Tried and tested)…

    That’s a good list Harsh. And as, you’ve rightly said about theme conversions. Having an explicit site or blog specific to any product will have more conversions than normal blogs.
