Affiliate Programs for WordPress Users

Elegant Themes

We’re using a customized version of the Divi theme by Elegant Themes. Their membership gives you access to 87 amazing themes including Divi. There are 554,210+ sites using Divi. Using their visual page builder tool, we can make a custom sidebar for each of our category pages and create unique layouts for any page or post. They pay over $3,000,000 each year to their affiliates.

StudioPress Themes

We design custom child themes for the Genesis Framework by StudioPress. We offer customization services for their growing collection of themes. Their framework and 35+ themes are also included for free if you purchase a WP Engine hosting package. Their themes are SEO-friendly with top-notch coding. If you have hosting with another company, you can purchase their Pro Plus All package and get access to all of the current themes and any future themes that they release. They have solid documentation and an entire development community in case you have questions.

Restored 316

We recommend themes by Restored 316 for clients that are looking for feminine WooCommerce ready themes. Lauren’s themes are designed for the Genesis Framework. She also runs a Facebook Group for her affiliates so you can ask questions and get information about upcoming product releases. They usually post tours of new themes so you know what to explain when you introduce them on your blog.

SiteGround

SiteGround offers WordPress hosting packages. We use SiteGround for our business site and WordPress themes. Because we offer many premade Weebly themes, we also use them to host our Weebly sites. You can see why we recommend SiteGround here. Although they do not offer a free domain for the first year, they do include a free SSL on every hosting plan. Having https:// on your domain signals to Google that your site is safe.

Affiliate Payout: $50 per referral and more earnings as you reach 6+ referrals per month | More Information

 

Bluehost

Although we host our business site with SiteGround, Bluehost is also a great hosting provider. Many of our clients have been happy using them for their small business and personal sites. They offer a free domain for the first year and also include a free SSL on every hosting plan. Having https:// on your domain signals to Google that your site is safe.

Affiliate Payout: $65 per referral | More Information

 

WordPress.com

There are two versions of WordPress which you can read more about here. When a referral pays for a product from JetPack, WordPress.com, or Woocommerce, you get paid 20%. WordPress.com has recently started allowing installation of plugins and third-party themes on their Business level plan.

WP Rocket

We use WP Rocket for caching and performance optimization. It integrates features such as lazy loading of images, deferred loading of JavaScript, minification of HTML code, CSS, and JavaScript files. We picked WP Rocket so that we would not run into a conflict with WooCommerce. Cart and checkout pages are excluded from the cache for WooCommerce, Easy Digital Download, iThemes Exchange, Jigoshop, and WP-Shop. Over 300,000 sites use the WP Rocket plugin.

ThirstyAffiliates

Thirsty Affiliates offers both a free and pro version of the affiliate link cloaking plugin. Using their plugin, you can make a library of all your affiliate links and organize them into categories. As you write blog posts, you can click a button and search for affiliate links in the library. Rather than using a long link with random characters, you can create custom links. You can also view reports to see which affiliate links are being clicked. Their Pro membership has even more report features, broken link checking, and an option to push Google Click Events to Google Analytics.

They are recommended by WPEngine and their videos have been licensed by GoDaddy, Liquid Web, Pressable, Media Template, WooCommerce, StudioPress, and WPBeginner. Their tutorials also include more advanced videos for WooCommerce, Yoast SEO, Ninja Forms, and JetPack. Their videos are current and include training for Gutenberg.

Ultimate Bundles

This isn’t exactly WordPress related, but if you expect to have a successful blog, you have to manage your time and hit your goals. Ultimate Bundles offers a huge collection of resources for Bloggers in their Genius Blogger’s Toolkit. Their bundles include digital products that are 90-97% off. The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit bundle is only available for purchase on April 8th – 9th and October 2nd – 7th, 2019. We just recently purchased their Ultimate Productivity Bundle that will be available to non-affiliates February 20th – February 25th, 2019. Their bundles aren’t limited to just blogging resources, though. Take a look at their bundle release calendar to see what will be offered this year. As an affiliate, you can get a bundle for free if you refer 5 people or you can purchase it in advance (discounted, of course!) and get reimbursed after 5 referrals. If you currently write eBooks or coach online, you should take a look and see if you can partner with them.

Affiliate Payout: 40% per referral or 10% of referred affiliate’s earnings for first year | More Information
