8 Electronics Affiliate Programs To Work With in 2019

Hello there my electronically minded Sea Changers. The online sales of electronics is certainly an interesting area to get involved in as it covers such a large and diverse range of products and equipment. In an effort to assist you as you get started within this niche I am going to give you an insight today into my list of 8 Electronics Affiliate Programs To Work With in 2019.

As I run through them, I am keeping in mind that this is a huuuuggeee niche so the size and types of affiliate programs within it are practically never ending. So how have I picked my best 8? 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 electronics and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What are Electronics?

When we discuss the term electronics, it essentially covers anything that works on electricity or batteries and everything in between. As I have said, it is a massive niche so you will need to do some good research in order to break it all down into a sub-niche that you can work with. These sub niches could incorporate any of the following:

How to Sell Electronics Online - speaker

  • Home HiFi – Televisions, DVD players, Soundbars etc.
  • Computer equipment – laptops, desktop computers, mobile phones, iPods, iPads etc.
  • Photographic equipment – cameras, lenses etc.
  • Home appliances – fans, ovens, washing machines
  • Gaming – consoles, controllers, headsets and so on
  • In car electronics – stereo systems, dash cams etc.
  • Drones
  • Actual electronics – Resistors, capacitors, diodes etc.

What can affiliate marketers promote?

One of the biggest issues with the sale of many electronics products online is that visitors to your site trust it and its products enough to actually make their purchase online. In many cases, the reader will use your site to research what they need and then run down to their local electronics store to purchase. In many cases, this is because they:

  • want to handle and test them prior to purchase.
  • don’t want to pay shipping costs on large items.
  • want a warranty and local return process.

There are a number of ways that you can combat this within your posts such as demonstration videos and highlighting shipping and warranty information but basically, as long as you are solving the problems of your readers, then there really is a good market here to explore. Let’s then check out my 8 electronics affiliate programs that may help you out…

TigerDirect

8 Electronics Affiliate Programs - tigerdirect

TigerDirect is a massive one-stop-shop electronics site providing access to a massive range of computer, business and server electronics covering all of the big manufacturers such as HP, Apple, Dell and others.

Added to their business range of computers etc, they also offer the following:

  • Telecommunications equipment
  • Office products
  • HiFi and home entertainment
  • Security and surveillance equipment

This is a great site to link to if your niche is generalized as there is certainly enough there to keep your readers occupied for years. And even if you are working in a narrower field (such as computers and networking for example), there is opportunity there for a little cross selling into HiFi and other electronics for the office as well. And with their big brand inventory, you may be able to sway some of those nervous buyers we talked about to purchase from you online rather than heading out locally.

            The tracker works essentially like a human sports tracker except for your furry little family member with a good range of collars and colours. The only other point of consideration here for affiliate marketers is the fact that for the product to work, customers will not only need to purchase the tracking unit, but enter into a subscription agreement as well.

            Affiliate commissions are paid on the purchase of the tracker unit only and not for ongoing subscriptions.

            Big brand affiliates

            Should you wish to stick to the bigger, more well-known brands, then you can sign to them directly. Some big brands with affiliate programs include:

            • Samsung
            • Belkin
            • Go-Pro
            • Bose
            • Apple

            To find their affiliate programs, simply enter “affiliate: brand” into your search engine. (obviously substituting ‘brand‘ for whatever brand is that you are looking for). e.g.

            8 Electronics Affiliate Programs - samsung

            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 set yourself up via Amazon. Amazon provides access to these products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the relevant electronic products within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

            Amazon’s commission rates are nowhere near as high as some of the programs listed above (4 – 7%) however 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 sites 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 – or better match your geographic location. 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).

            8 Electronics Affiliate Programs - affiliate electronics

            We can also start to narrow our searches if we wish – such as if we wanted to work with camera equipment only:

            8 Electronics Affiliate Programs - affiliate camera

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

            Conclusion
