Affiliate programs for mom bloggers are a wonderful way to earn passive income for your family. I remember when I first started blogging professionally in 2011, I signed up for the ShareASale affiliate network and earned my first “check” from them the same month. It was a great feeling to be getting paid for the free information I was pouring out into the internet each week. Eventually I learned to focus on a small handful of programs that would help me serve my audience well and earn a great passive income for years to come.
I am excited to share my top 10 affiliate programs for mom bloggers. While there are a lot of affiliate programs out there, not all of them have worked for me. As I mentioned above, I’ve been blogging professionally since 2011 and have worked with nearly 100 different companies and their affiliate programs. And over time I’ve realized the ones that were a good fit for me and for most mom bloggers.
Below you will find the top 10 affiliate programs that have blessed my family and I tremendously over the past several years. It’s my hope that your audience and family will benefit from these programs the same way my family and I do. Remember in the beginning that it takes a lot of hard work to establish your affiliate income. But once your readers see you are consistent and that they can trust the things you recommend, you will begin to make a good passive income through affiliate programs you promote.
While the list below isn’t an all-inclusive list of the affiliate programs for mom bloggers out there; these are the programs that have helped me build the baseline income we need to cover all the bills and beyond. Praying these programs are a blessing to you, too!
Top 10 Affiliate Programs For Mom Bloggers
ShareASale is the first affiliate program I ever joined. It is a great program with lots of different partners (brands) to choose from. Head on over to their site and take a look to see what partnerships will work for you!
Attention all MAKERS! If you are crazy obsessed with cooking, baking, sewing, dancing, and creating (like me) then this is a wonderful affiliate program. You can earn very generous commissions when your readers sign up for one of the MANY courses offered. And the truth is, Bluprint (formerly Craftsy) is one of my favorite places to hang out and learn new skills, or just sharpen the ones I already have! You can easily sign up for their affiliate program HERE.
I have earned the most passive income (outside of selling my own products) as a blogger with Rakuten (formerly known as Ebates). This year alone I have earned nearly $3,100 (by year end I will be well over this). You earn from shopping online and referrals. You can sign up for Rakuten here.
This is a WONDERFUL way to earn a great income. I’ve been both an author and affiliate for these sales and not only is the training top-notch, the organizers are people of integrity. You can sign up for their affiliate program here.
5. Erin Condren
Erin Condren is the maker of my FAVORITE planning products for moms! I use the Erin Condren Life Planner, Teacher Planner, and small planning system. I literally love everything she makes and this affiliate program is easy to use and allows my planner obsession to be debt-free and put money in my pocket. You can sign up here.
This program is a solution for busy moms who struggle to get healthy meals on the table. It is a great app that gives the busy mom flexibility to choose from different meal plans and dietary restrictions. Our favorite part is that you can drag and drop your favorites and create a meal plan that you love! Sign up to be an affiliate here.
This has been a good one as you can earn money for promoting stock images. I am already a member of the site and so I am able to share my referral link. You don’t have to have a monthly membership, but have purchase at least some credits in order to be eligible. It’s a great way to store up some extra cash to spend on your stock photos or cash out at the end 🙂
Amazon has an affiliate program that is good for organic deep linking. Most of their products are commissionable (not high payouts, so quantity is a better strategy). The great this is the vast variety of products to choose from. While the payouts are not too high, if you have a popular blog post and are able to monetize it well, it is a great source of passive income.
My children have benefited immensely from this reading curriculum. This is a wonderful way to promote literacy all while helping your family pay the bills. We earn enough money every year to pay for all 3 of our children’s homeschool curriculum from our All About Reading commissions. And I don’t buy used curriculum, so it is VERY spendy. I am thankful for this amazing program.
Elite Blog academy is the single most comprehensive blog course out there. Not only did this course help take me to double my income in just 90 days (and I was already making a full-time income), it just keeps getting better and better! It is so easy to promote a course that is worth it’s weight in gold. You can read more about it here.
I hope that these programs can help point you in the right direction to begin start earning some affiliate income for your mom blog! There is nothing wrong with getting rewarded for your hard work and information you provide to your readers. Just remember to make sure you are sharing your affiliate links to be a blessing and not to “sell” your readers. Your readers are smart and they’ll know the difference. Be a mom blogger with integrity and you will find great success!
