10 Man Cave 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’s topic is another one that has morphed into being as a result of a social interaction recently. You see a friend of mine has recently ‘dropped off the plant’ whilst he renovated his house. Once all was completed, he invited us all around for the obligatory celebration and barbecue where he proudly showed off his crowning glory – the man cave. This was a thing of beauty… Big screen TV, a Pool table, beer fridge and all of those tacky, kitchy signs that you would expect to see in a room such as this… So of course that was all it took for me to start wondering how much of this stuff is available online? Hence, a post outlining 10 man cave affiliate programs was born!

Before we begin however, I am conscious that when it comes to stuff for the man cave that there are a number of different areas or sub niches to choose from hence the quantity of affiliate programs available may also 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 ‘man cave’ and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by the man cave?

Now I have to be clear from the start – I will be generalizing in a ridiculous and self- indulgent manner here as we discuss options for the stereotypical man and that secret place we all either yearn for, or love to be in. So what do I mean by a man-cave (for those of you living under a man-sized rock)? I am talking about the home bar, rumpus room, TV room, shed/barn or carport that has become a haven and collection point for all things manly such as:

  • Big TVs
  • Beer fridges
  • Bars – furniture and accessories
  • Pool/Foosball/Poker/Beer pong tables etc.
  • Memorabilia
  • Rules/Signs and other things we all think are cool

So, if you are looking to make some money selling man-stuff online, 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 man cave items – especially as there really is a lot that can be stuffed in there. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over affiliate programs for men that may suit your site. These are (careful, some serious manly stereotyping going on ahead):

  1. Know your audience, some purchasers are looking for specifics and want the best whilst others are hoping to just get their manly retreats setup on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Purchasers of high end brand items and accessories – such as TVs etc. – 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 for a specific purpose will need to know details and why that particular item will suit – we men love a good electronics spec – oh and that pool table needs to fit in the space.
  4. Don’t underestimate the purchase power of the avid man-cave collector – they will spend the dollars but will need to know exactly what they are getting.
  5. Despite the stories to the contrary – men will spend money online – but we like to get on with things so make it easy for us by giving us the details and a clear link to purchase (that’s what I like but anyway – you have been warned…)

And to give you a boost, let’s have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

UnbeatableSale.com

Our first site, UnbeatableSale.com is a one-stop-shop furniture and electronics site with items from so many categories that it would be impossible not to completely deck out the old man bar from top to bottom.

Ok, now it is time to focus on the all important bar aspects of the man cave.

  • Bar Equipment
  • Beer and Wine making supplies
  • Serverware

Man Cave Giant

  • Bar products
  • Furniture
  • Decor
  • Game tables (billiards, Foosball etc.)
  • Entertainment (TVs, Juke boxes etc.)

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 man cave 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 manly 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). An example is as below:

Man Cave Affiliate Programs - affiliate programs

There are man cave 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 pool balls is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best man cave affiliate programs to share with the boys in 2020. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own manly 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
