10 Coffee 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 will look into a niche that has the potential to build quite a lucrative online business around with my 10 coffee affiliate programs to brew in 2020. Now, as I have mentioned in a previous post in regards to selling coffee online, there are over 2.25 billion cups of coffee served each day worldwide so to my way of thinking, if this is a market that you are interested in then I think there could be some good opportunity here.

Let's Build a Website Together Using My Proven 4 Step Formula to Making Money with Affiliate Marketing

As I am conscious that there are a number of different coffee related sub niches available, I also know that 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 ‘coffee’ and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by Coffee?

So, it probably goes without saying here that we are dealing with that little green bean that is roasted, ground and ‘mixed’ with (usually boiling) water to make that delicious beverage that many of us have managed to get ourselves addicted to daily. As I have mentioned above, this is such a popular market meaning that for those looking to make money selling coffee online there is opportunity for a generalist site, or the potential to utilise a number of sub niches individually or grouped into the one business. So for this post, I have tried to cover a good cross section across some of the sub niches such as:

  • Coffee beans
  • Coffee machines
  • Accessories
  • Infused coffees
  • Coffee pods
  • Travel and coffee

And of course anything else you can think of when it comes to coffee…

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to coffee. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over coffee affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. Some examples of these influences include :

  1. Know your audience, some purchasers are looking for specifics and want the best whilst others are hoping to just get a decent cup of coffee made at home each morning on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Coffee fanatics – likely purchasers of high end coffee machines and accessories – 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 looking to deck out their coffee serving business will generally need to know that they are going to get good quality items so as not to jeopardize their income, reputation or have to replace it again in the short term. Check that your affiliate programs have solid products for sale.
  4. Coffee beans must be fresh – check the shipping and packaging arrangements of your affiliate vendor carefully.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on coffee 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:

Coffee Wholesale USA

Coffee Wholesale USA is a one-stop-shop site with a massive range of coffee and coffee related products aimed at the bulk purchaser and professional use such as cafes, restaurants etc. Their product list is too large to list here however the following is a list of the categories covered which includes:

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 coffee 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 coffee 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).

coffee affiliate programs - affiliate list

There are coffee 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 coffee pods is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best coffee affiliate programs to brew in 2020. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own coffee based 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.

Until next time

Have fun
