10 4×4 Affiliate Programs

Hello there Sea Changers. Welcome back to my series of program lists to assist those of you looking to fund your sea change with affiliate marketing. Today we are going to lock in the hubs to look at my 10 best 4×4 affiliate programs to take off the road in 2021. 4×4 and off-roading is an extremely popular pastime and whilst it falls nicely within the lucrative hobby niche where we know people will spend money, there are also the extra sub niche elements (such as outdoors, camping and fishing) to it as well. So with a little work, this could be one that can be turned into quite a nice little sea change funding online business.

Do You Need Help Turning Your Passion Into An Online Business?Let Me Show How I Built Two Websites That Earn Passive Income Using My 4 Step Formula

I joined Wealthy Affiliate 2 years ago with little knowledge of how it all works.

Now I have two websites up and running that are MAKING MONEY!

Click on the button below to see how I did it.

Before we begin however, I am conscious that there are a number of different areas or sub niches within this subject hence the quantity of affiliate programs to choose from may be just as large. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let's have a look at what I mean by the term ‘4×4' and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by 4×4?

Ok, so I probably don't have to explain this however just so we are clear, 4×4 is an acronym for a four wheeled drive vehicle. In simple terms, these vehicles comprise of two drive train equipped axles allowing for all four wheels to propel them forward and allows them to handle off-road conditions such as sand, rocks, mud and snow etc.

For the purposes of this post then, we are going to focus on all of the bits and pieces that are incorporated into the art of off-road driving in a 4WD including:

  • General parts
  • Accessories
  • Wheels and tyres
  • Decorative items
  • Education

And of course anything else you can think of when it comes to selling 4×4 parts and accessories online… So, if you are looking to set up an online business in this space, let's check them out below.

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to 4×4 driving. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over 4×4 affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. These are:

  1. Know your audience, some are looking for specifics and want the best whilst others are hoping to just get their equipment on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Hard core 4×4 buffs and outdoorsmen will not take risks if they don't trust you or your affiliate site. Make sure the programs you choose are reputable and have good recourse options if the purchaser is not happy.
  3. Those purchasing as a new hobby, or have just purchased a new vehicle etc. will need to know exactly what they need and that the products you are promoting will fit in with their requirements. Make sure your programs can provide the products to back up the information that you are covering.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on 4×4 parts and accessories online if it can make their lives easier so as long as you are meeting their needs and solving problems, then you are on the right track. And to give you a boost, let's have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

1. Offroad Highway

8. Rugged Rocks

I am no expert I admit but by the looks of it I am fairly confident that if there is a branded item needed for any of the above models and they do not list it, then you are not going to find it… (they do order them in of course)

There is probably not enough here to base an entire affiliate marketing business around unless you are focused heavily on Nissan 4×4 vehicles however their offerings would certainly be a great addition to any 4×4, off-road or vehicular camping niche.

Amazon Associates

Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can do so via Amazon. Amazon provides access to a good range of 4×4 related products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the best products relevant to your site within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

Amazon's commission rates are not too bad and some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

How to find your own affiliate programs

As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of programs that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category'. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space especially as I could never even begin to cover every 4×4 or off-road related requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

Sell 4x4 Parts Online - 4x4 affiliate programs

There are 4×4 related affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

  • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
  • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
  • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
  • Pay decent commissions.
  • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

  • Your website name.
  • Traffic levels.
  • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your snatch straps is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best 4×4 affiliate programs to take off the road in 2021. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own 4x4based affiliate marketing business and as usual, please do not hesitate to comment below if you have any questions, need some advice or have any experiences to share. Oh, and especially comment if you have any experience with these, or any other programs as well.
