Christian Affiliate Programs
Affiliate programs in general are great because you don’t have to do anything but share the information with others. Now you may think there aren’t any Christian affiliate programs that you can join, but I’m here to tell you there is. You might be surprised at the number of Christian programs out there and they may not always market themselves as “Christian”. Some companies still uphold good business ethics, morals, and values without explicitly claiming to be Christian.
Fusion Cash is one of my top pick for an affiliate program that’s not Christian but have good business ethics.
There are a couple of ways you can find some really good “Christian” affiliate programs to promote.
Clickbank is a website that handles thousands of affiliate programs. You can find all sorts of programs when you search by keyword or business name. When you use Christian keywords you will be able to find programs that will fit your needs. When you find one that sounds good, check out the website to make sure it’s what you are looking for. You may also find products that are not Christian based, but the owner is Christian and that’s perfectly fine.
Clickbank will provide everything you need to get started with your affiliate program. So all you will have to do is find ways to market it using the affiliate link they provide. Your payments will also come from Clickbank.
- Other programs
Some companies offer an affiliate program that they manage in house. They may use programs like E-Junkie or WAHMCart for their program. The best way to find these are to search Google or Yahoo using keywords that fit what you are looking for and then look through the homepage to see if they offer an affiliate program. You can search for specific types of businesses or certain types of products and then see if they offer an affiliate program. You should also look at the sites you visit often as well. They may also offer a program that you can join.
Joining Christian affiliate programs are a great way to earn extra money while sharing products that you feel comfortable marketing. When Christian people are your target market, you will feel better about marketing Christian products to them. Using these suggestions will help you find them easier and this will help you spend less time looking and more time earning money.
After you selected the companies you like, it’s time to start promoting your “Christian” Affiliate programs. Sharing the program and what it offers is the only way you will make money from it. If you don’t share, people won’t know about it and they won’t buy. There are several ways you can promote the program you are a part of.
If you have a blog, place a button on the side bar and link it to your affiliate link. Most programs offer buttons and banners to use in promotions. You can also use the ads, blog posts, or articles the program owner will supply in blog posts. You can also create your own to place on your blog. Decide what will work for you and run with it. Whatever method you use, make sure you add your affiliate link to it so you are the one getting credit for it.
If you have your own website, you can add buttons, banners, text links, or website links to your site. If you have a links page, you can include your affiliate link on that page. If you have button or banner ads on your site, you can include your button and link there as well.
Solo ads are great for affiliate programs. You can create an ad or use a blog post as an ad and pay to have an advertising site submit your ad as a solo ad to their lists. There are numerous advertising companies that you can go through. Ask around or do a search to see what you can find. Make sure to ask if their lists are target specific so you can make sure the right people will receive your ad.
- Button or banner ads
Some websites offer button or banner spots for a small fee. Look for a website that offers this type of advertising that is geared to your target market and place your ad. Some websites offer different prices for different pages while others only have a few pages or maybe even one page. Review their advertising options before you make a decision.
- Social Media
If you are a part of Twitter.com or Facebook.com you can occasionally promote your affiliate programs on those sites. Remember not to do it too often or you will lose your followers or friends. Some programs offer a Twitter ad that will fit into the 140-character requirement and that same ad can be used on Facebook as well.
Promoting your Christian affiliate programs is the only way you will generate income with them. When you use the suggestions in this article, you will be able to promote them with ease. Don’t be afraid to share them with others. Let God lead you in the direction you should go and what to say.
