One of the advantages of affiliate marketing is that you can essentially market anything you like – including those products, services and items that cost just that little bit more as well. This can either be as a focused campaign or a ‘side hustle' where you can make a some bonus commissions on top of your general offerings.

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 start, the affiliate lists that I look at on this site are usually niche specific – covering everything from travel to fashion to pets – however as we are looking at things from a slightly different angle, I am conscious that there are a number of different areas or sub niches that would could look at.

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 in terms of popular high ticket affiliate programs so I did some searching around, 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 ‘British' when it comes to affiliate programs…

What do we mean by high ticket affiliate programs?

As mentioned above, we are steering away from niche specific programs here by looking at sites that offer high ticket products and therefore, high commissions. This usually means selling items via one of two ways:

  1. Offering high cost products meaning higher commissions on the total sale – i.e. 5% of $2000 is better than 10% of $100
  2. Selling products that offer high initial sales commissions and then recurring income over time – as in the same amount is earned as the first option above, however it is done so over a longer period of time.

An interesting point of note here is that in reality, the sale of high ticket items should not be any more difficult than general prices options – especially as most tend to sit within the digital product space however don't forget those high end designer watches and handbags either. Posts still focus on the benefits and problem solving abilities of the product however the target market you choose may differ – you will just need to do some research before you begin.

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 high ticket affiliate program options. 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 requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

There are high ticket affiliate programs for every niche you may be working in – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. For example, if you were working with holidays your search would be along the lines of “Affiliate: luxury hotels” etc. as below:

High ticket affiliate programs - affiliate programs

And of course, anything that offers recurring commissions is also well worth a visit too.

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 luxury fashion is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are my 10 best high ticket affiliate programs to cash in on in 2021. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own 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
