Best Paleo Affiliate Programs – Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers

Best Paleo Affiliate Program - Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers

Health, Fitness, and Weightloss are those evergreen niches for affiliates that are always profitable for bloggers and marketers  and tend to draw a large amount of readership looking for constant up to date info and products. Paleo affiliate programs fall perfectly into this niche. I have compiled some of the best paleo affiliate programs for you, to assist you in monetizing your niche  blog and website: (This post may contain affiliate links) 

Primal Palate
Primal Palate offers a 30 Day Guide to Paleo Program, which is an interesting resource for those who are new to the diet. Affiliates can take advantage of their program by joining Clickbank, and then following this link. Primal Palate  Affiliate website has plenty of banners and images to choose from, that will make promoting the program easy. If you want  to try out the program yourself (which is what I highly recommend), sign up here. Your commission is 50%, per sale.

Paleo Plan
Paleo Plan is a more extensive paleo program with monthly memberships ranging from a comprehensive meal planning program with recipes, to a Paleo Workout plan. They offer a 14-day-free trial to all members, no matter which plan you choose. The downside for affiliates is that the commission is paid only for the free trial sign up – 5 dollars per new member, but  no reoccurring affiliate commission as it is common with many subscription plans (Wealthy Affiliate, for example, pays a  reoccurring commission of over 22 Dollars month, every month)

. To sign up for their affiliate program, click this link,  then you will be redirected to ShareASale. This program does not auto approve their members, but will let you know within 2 to 3 business days, if you have been approved or not. But, like I mentioned above, take advantage of the free trial, to try out the program before promoting it, to see if it fits your audience.

Paleo Magazine
This company offers a 10 % commission to anyone directing sales toward their store, which includes issues to their magazine, eBooks, and Paleo gear (which is basically T-Shirts and other accessories, with their logo on it). What I do not like about this program is that they payout threshold is high – you have to reach 100 Dollars, in order to get paid. Unless you have a large readership, and/or large email list, I would recommend to try your hands on the other two mentioned above, due to that fact alone. They do payout via PayPal, which is very convenient, and the application is short. There is no auto approval, so you have to wait till they get back to you.

Best Paleo Affiliate Program - Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers
Paleo Treats
Now, here is something for those of us who like to snack. Paleo Treats offers, as its name suggests, treats and snacks for those who adhere to the Paleo diet. Affiliates can make 7 % per sale, with a payout minimum of 50 Dollars, which is a lot easier to achieve with consumables, such as snacks. I like the variety and quality of their products, so I highly recommend them as a potential affiliate marketing partner.

You can sign up for their program here. Again, no auto approval but they get back to you quickly. Paleo Treats has their own affiliate program, so you do not have to sign up for ShareASale or Clickbank to join.

 

 

Best Paleo Affiliate Program - Opportunities For Bloggers And Marketers

 

I hope you enjoyed this list of paleo diet affiliate marketers. The list is current as of August 2016, and I will update
it if there are any changes with the individual programs. If you are new to Affiliate Marketing and are not sure where to start, I have the perfect solution for you.

Free basic affiliate marketing training is available to you, via Wealthy Affiliate. Not only will you receive support, and two free websites with your free membership, but I am in the  community daily, and always available for questions, concerns or if you just want to say hi!

A Powerful Stand-Alone Keyword Search Tool – A Jaaxy Review

 

A Powerful Stand-Alone Keyword Search Tool - A Jaaxy Review

Finding an efficient keyword search tool, that does not cost you a fortune (or better yet, has a free option), is a task I did not like to embark, especially considering at the time, I was looking for the tool, I had no  idea how to use a keyword search tool, and how to compare them. I am lucky, that I ran across one valuable option before spending my hard earned money on those tools that are not worth a penny.

Upon the recommendation of a friend, I tried out Jaaxy- a keyword search tool with a free option, to search up to 30 searches per month. That is what initially sparked my interest – the fact that I could get familiar with the tool before having to pay anything. No commitment, no prior knowledge needed, and no payments, until I knew I liked the tool. What did I have to loose? Nothing!

You can try it out right now, for free!

 


Before I continue, I must say that I mostly use the keyword search tool that comes with my Wealthy Affiliate membership (which happens to be created by the same people, who created Jaaxy – so the tool is very similar), but before I took the plunge and became a WA member, Jaaxy was the best stand-alone tool I could find for the beginner I was, while being thorough enough to keep me engaged now, with much more experience.

Here is what you get from Jaaxy:

30 Free Monthly searches.
How much traffic you’ll get if you reach the #1 spot.
QSR (if it’s under 100, you have a GREAT chance to see your site on page 1).
KQI (green means good), SEO Power (1-100 scale. 1 is worst, 100 is best).
Domain search (allows you find if .com, .net, .org’s are available).
To Do (adds the keyword to a To-do list).

(the free keyword search tool on Wealthy Affiliate, has these same features)

Additional Jaaxy-only features:
A Powerful Stand-Alone Keyword Search Tool - A Jaaxy Review
a site rank tool
A tool to analyze your competition called SERPS (search engine rankings)
the ability to search for affiliate programs associated with your keyword searches
A brainstorm section
Related keywords to your searches which will provide you with tons of new ideas to work with

and most importantly for me at the time:

A training section!

Without this training, I would have been lost at that time. Thankfully, by using the Jaaxy keyword search tool, I became a lot more familiar with the process of finding proper keywords, and the concept of SEO, something that eluded me prior to finding this program.

So, if you are new to SEO and keyword search tools, Jaaxy makes it easy for you to succeed, without the need to  commit to a larger program, such as Wealthy affiliate, and without the hassle of some of the free programs out there. To me, Jaaxy is a perfect stand-alone keyword search tool to grow your website or blog, no matter what your niche, or goal.

Bonus!

Jaaxy currently offers three training bonuses for free! You can access them in the training section, once you created your free account. They are:

Bonus #1: 1,000 High Traffic, Low Competition Keywords

Bonus #2: Niches, Keywords, Success

Bonus #3: Domain Industry Secrets

Make Money Online: Up Your Blogging Productivity With These 5 Tips

Up Your Blogging Productivity

Need to get more done then you have time? While this seems to be a constant state for anyone who wants to make money online, there are ways to make our lives a little easier. Streamlining some of your daily activities can make a marvellous difference in your productivity, and help you maybe even have a little bit a life left? Wouldn’t that be nice?

Up Your Blogging Productivity! 5 Tips - Read more here! #blogging #blogtips #blogs Click To Tweet

Here are 5 Blogging Productivity Tips That Will Assist You In Getting More Things Done

  1. Use automation tools. Whether you use Hootsuite, Tailwind or Buffer (my personal favorite), all three of these will allow you to maximise your ability to have a consistent social media presence without being a slave to the computer. I chose the professional version of Buffer because it allows me to also schedule pins for Pinterest, the free version only allows you to use Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and Goggle +, and you are limited to 10 scheduled posts, while the professional version gives you the freedom to choose 100 posts ahead of time.
  2. Find out about promo days in Facebook groups. There are tons of facebook groups that allow you to post your blog posts, twitter posts, and pins – on specific days. Blogging support groups and marketing groups are easy to find on facebook, just make sure that you are clear about their rules when it comes to posting. Some have daily threads, others weekly. Note these days in your editorial calendar
  3. Create an editorial calendar. Seriously, that is one of the most important strategies that will keep you producing content at a higher rate, and with a much more coherent theme, then if you just post randomly throughout the week. You can create different themes for a specific day – for example, I have a weekly series on my wellness blog Avalon-Media.org, where I post a gratitude list and weekly recap every Friday. Knowing what to post saves you time, and you can research in bulk, considering that some of your content will relate to each other – at least I hope it does.
  4. Be open to guest posting. Having someone else write relevant content on your blog is a great way to connect with other bloggers and grow your audience, but it is also a great way to fill blank space in your editorial calendar. Just make sure that the guest blogger knows exactly what you are expecting, so it is a good idea to have a pre-set guidelines for guest posting. I write more extensively about that subject here.
  5. Get a Virtual Assistant. While that might seem like a million miles away from being affordable for some new bloggers, it is actually cheaper than you might think. You can outsource specific tasks on Fiverr, or hire a part time Virtual Assistant from a reputable company, who lives in a country outside of the US. I use Virtual Staff Finder, which hires exclusively from the Philippines, and I have always been very happy about their service.

9 Legit Passive Income Ideas You Can Work From Home

9 Legit Passive Income Ideas You Can Work From Home

1. Write an sell a Kindle Book and publish it on Amazon
People are always looking for something new to read, and if you are particularly knowledgeable in an area
(or always wanted to learn more about it) write an ebook to publish on Kindle. Amazon makes it easy to
publish your books via the KDP Publishing platform, and it does not cost you a dime. I love working with Amazon
and will be posting a lot more about how this works in detail shortly

 

9 Legit Passive Income Ideas You Can Work From Home - Books
2. Place affiliate marketing links onto your blog.
No matter what niche you are into – from dog training to weight-lifting, there are affiliate programs out there
that fit with your content. Add these special links to your posts, and you can make money, each and every time
someone purchases someone from the companies you are affiliated with. One of my favorite passive income strategies.
3. Dropshipping!
You can create an online store – for example via Shopify – and sell products without ever having to carry inventory.
So instead of having to maintain  storage and ship item yourselves, you capture orders and give the drop ship company directions on where to send the item to, of course for profit.

9 Legit Passive Income Ideas You Can Work From Home - Google Adsense
4. Build and maintain a youtube channel and get Adsense revenue.
Yes, you can get paid for creating a youtube channel. By now you have probably heard of people like PewDiePie making more than just a living on this platform, so trying to get a slice of that pie is not a bad idea. Pick a niche,
produce quality content, and publish regularly.
5. Start investing your profits.
Begin investing some of your passive income money into different investment opportunities to grow your portfolio. Begin small and work with a trusted advisor, but do not wait until you have a larger amount of money to begin to invest

9 Legit Passive Income Ideas You Can Work From Home - Investments
6. Create a book review website
If you like to read, and also like to share what you think about what you read, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
With services like NetGalley, where publishers actively share new releases with bloggers in return for reviews, and
Amazon’s Associate program, where you can link to their listings via affiliate links, you can build a profitable
and interesting site, especially if you write about current releases on a regular basis. I have been reviewing for NetGalley for over three years now, and love working with them, as well as Authors directly.
7. Design for one of the product on demand sites, like Zazzle, CafePress, Society 6, RedBubble and more, and sell these items!
You can create funny, adorable or whatever you want them to be – designs, upload them to the above-mentioned sites, and receive a commission when they sell. Of course, you will have to do the marketing for those products, for example using your blog, website, social media connections of Pinterest, to drive traffic to those designs, but if you are willing to put in the time, you can continuously make money on these products. I just sold a vintage postcard last week, a design that I placed over a year ago onto Zazzle. It still makes my profit today! And that is just one of my over 200 designs I have on these platforms now.

9 Legit Passive Income Ideas You Can Work From Home - Amazon

8. Create a product, book or course out of the blog posts and content you have already written.
This is especially great for niche bloggers who have had an active site for a while now. You can turn what you have already written into profitable products that way, especially if you tweak it just a little to make it more current and up-to-date, as well as interesting. Food bloggers can take advantage of this, by creating their own cookbook, which they often do. The same goes for people who write a lot about health, or alternative healing methods. There are many opportunities for you to refurbish your content into a larger piece of content.

9. Create a Product-Review niche site, and use Amazon links to generate income.
the most important thing is that you go niche on this. A too broad subject review site will not get the attention of
consumers quite as fast as a niche site will. Amazon makes it easy for you to build a niche site on just about every
subject and product you are interested in. Your niche can be a coffee machine review site, or a site dedicated to
food supplements, the potential is as diverse and large as there are categories on Amazon. With a little bit of creativity, you can create quite a profitable site.

Question: Dou you have a favorite passive income stream you like to utilize? Is it on this list? If not, why not share your idea with everyone in the comment section? Thanks!

How Do I Get Products To Review – And A Word Of Caution

How Do I Get Products To Review - And A Word Of Caution

One way to monetize your blog is to review products and connect your affiliate links to those products. But that means you need actual products to review ( I am not a fan of reviewing products that I do not own, more on that another time).

Luckily there are websites that connect influencers, reviewers, and bloggers with companies who offer their products and services for free, or at a discount for you to review. I am going to talk about a few of those I am a part of here:
ReviewKick:
ReviewKick is for Amazon reviews only. That means, unlike some of the other companies, ReviewKick only asks you to post an Amazon review in exchange for a free or discounted product. I like their setup because they make it very easy to leave a review – and are very responsive when you have any questions. The products listed tend to be high quality.

Tomoson:
Tomoson is similar to ReviewKick with a noticeable difference that companies can ask you to review their products on  different social media networks, to which you have to commit to. For example, a company can ask you to create a
blog post and a youtube video, while another only asks for a facebook mention or an Amazon review. You can pick and choose which products you want, just like with ReviewKick, and they are also available for free or via a discount. The other difference to ReviewKick is that it has some offers where the companies pay you to post on social media – which is pretty cool, on top of getting a free product

Influenster:
I honestly do not like influenster as much as I like the above two, out of two reasons. You need a high social media
engagement in order to get any boxes (they call them voxboxes). You do not get always full size products, sometimes they give only samples away. You do not get to choose your products, either. The pressure to write a positive review on a negative item is relatively great, and you had no influence over what you get – if you want more boxes, you got to write good reviews no matter what.

BuzzAgent
You can become a buzzagent to review full size and sample products when available. Unlike influenster you have a little bit more control over what you get – you do not have to take all assignments offered, and you are told beforehand what the offers are. Those offers are limited,  though, and so far I only received household goods through them. All products are  completely free, though.

A word of caution:
I have received hundreds of dollars of free products through these companies, which is great. But not all products are
of the highest standard, so you need to be very selective about what you choose to accept. The pressure to write a good review is there, and sometimes you have to make the decision between making a company happy, or being honest with your readers. I always opt for the latter, even if that sometimes means that I do not receive as many paid sponsor offers, or get a negative reaction from the company. But I do take reviewing seriously.

And so should you

Fiercely Independent Blessings!

Claudia
