Wonderful Online Affiliate Programs for the Holidays

It is early for online affiliate programs, but your competitors already have snow, Santa and holiday shopping  income on their minds. Time to start your affiliate advertising for the holidays…

Affiliate Marketing

The Internet industry has been around for a while now, affiliate  programs are  very popular business models for generating income online. It allows you to get products together quickly for your online business  and cheaply.

As an example. If you are looking to increase your holiday sales do keep these shopping holidays following the US Thanksgiving in mind. I have a RECOMMENDATIONS   page on my site for upcoming specials on various products that I am an affiliate for.


Made just for holidays promotions such as:

  • Black Friday
  • Small Business Saturday
  • Cyber Monday and of course

Chanukah and other celebrations could be added as well.

Holiday Celebrations

Your online affiliate programs for the holidays marketing efforts should include an investment in the power of social media to increase commerce and strengthen brand reach.  Socializing commerce, on Instagram and tapping into user-generated content on Pinterest are two options  Facebook remains the king in social media in 2016.

Despite the rising popularity of other networks. Most people, from the research I have found, will PLAN ON using  Facebook during the holidays. It’s where your customers are.

Brand your social media on Facebook with a holiday theme, incorporate holiday hashtags on Twitter and Instagram and  you can even create a  contest in the spirit of the season or support  a charity. Other tactics include using time-limited offers to create a sense of urgency  such as the day sale specials  Black Friday or Cyber Monday that  inspire customers to visit your  site or Facebook business page.

Use the end of the year to your advantage.

It’s a perfect  time for your fans to get to know you and your business a little better. Post pics of your celebrations on your Facebook profile page as well as your FB fan or business pages. Make sure your content is worthy of paid reach. You may want to boost a post or two so make sure they are boostable. Each piece of content you publish should pass your “is this boost worthy” content test.

Before publishing, (on any social media platform) ask yourself these questions:

  • Is this post potentially unique enough to stop someone in the feed? I create my own images using Canva or Picmonkey so they are special.  Grum to post on Instagram from my PC.
  • Does it capture their attention enough to read/watch/ engage/or share the post? Most shared images are quotes or subjects done on a holiday season theme.
  • Is this post a warm personal story /fun video? Visually does it still stand out? Family pics are always unique and if you add text to them they stand out and look very special.

Affiliate programs for you…
This is one of the most profitable ways to make money on the internet. Particularly during the holidays. There are so many discounts and  extra special prices around days like Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Christmas,  etc.

Finding which  program  work for you can be  pretty overwhelming. Which online affiliate programs  should you promote? Which products do  you use?  Clickbank, Shareasale, JV Zoo? You could be an affiliate for Aweber, GetResponse or Constant Contact? The list goes on and on. It depends on experience, find what is right for you.  I have a previous  article  you can read “10 Things About Affiliate Marketing”  Affiliate programs here.
