10 Eco Friendly 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 been gaining more and more interest in recent times with my 10 eco friendly affiliate programs to turn green for 2020. What do I mean by Eco Friendly? Well I am looking at sites here that practice environmentally friendly and sustainably sound practices in everything they do. Not just within the products they sell but also their operational processes as well.

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

The fact that Eco Friendly is effectively a subject free initiative, there are a number of different areas and sub niches available, as well as a large quantity of affiliate programs to choose from. 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 ‘eco friendly’ and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by Eco Friendly?

As I have mentioned above, when it comes to Eco Friendly I really wanted to focus on those sites that not only provide these options within their product ranges but also within everything that they do such as packaging, carbon offset programs, animal free testing and so on. The problem I guess is that this does make it a little harder to narrow down into a particular niche or sub niche here. Some common areas of interest here are however:

And of course anything else you may want to focus on within your own niche…

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to eco friendly products as more and more companies start to jump on the sustainability train. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over eco friendly 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 go eco friendly on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Hard core environmentalists 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 convert their lifestyle will want to know how your products can assist them so make sure all of this information can be covered adequately.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on eco friendly products online – if for no other reason than these products are not always readily available within mainstream retail outlets – 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:

The Ultimate Green Store

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 eco friendly 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 environmentally sound 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).

eco friendly affiliate programs - program search

There are eco friendly affiliate programs for just about every niche that you can think of – 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 organic shopping bags is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best eco friendly affiliate programs to turn green for 2020. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own environmentally 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
