Are you looking for the best fashion affiliate programs for bloggers? If so, keep reading on!

Joining affiliate programs for fashion bloggers, beauty bloggers and personal finance bloggers is the best way to start increasing your blog revenue overnight.

It’s pretty solid long term strategy too: Many pro bloggers also cite affiliate marketing as their favourite way to monetise a blog because once you’ve set your links, your income is mostly passive, just like with display ads.

So, if you haven’t been doing affiliate marketing yet, now’s the right time to get started! In this article I’ll show you exactly how to monetise your blog with affiliate links and tell you in detail what the best paying affiliate platforms for fashion bloggers, beauty bloggers and business bloggers are!

Let’s dive into it!

High Paying Affiliate Programs For Fashion Bloggers


What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Simply put, affiliate marketing is selling and recommending other people’s products on your website, much like sales people in high end retail stores would get a commission for any sale that they influence.

You will typically receive a nice commission ranging from 6-15% on any sale that you influence, and what’s even better is that the cookie length for these products is typically 28 days!

Also, it doesn’t matter if the customer who goes through your links buys something completely different and unrelated to what you’ve talked about in your blog post – as long as you’ve influenced a sale on that retailers website, you will receive commission for it. Sounds amazing right?

How Much Do Bloggers Earn From Affiliate Marketing?

The sky really is the limit when it comes to affiliate marketing earnings. Your blog niche and content play a part in how much you’ll typically earn, but every niche has potential to earn a good amount from affiliates.

From my own experience, you can start making decent income already with 30,000 / mo page views. When I had my first 30,000 page view month, I made about $1200 just from affiliate sales. Now that I have 80,000 page views / mo, I typically make about $2600 from different affiliate programs.

However, I know that there are a lot of bloggers who make even more money than I do with fewer monthly visitors! It all boils down to the content that you’re creating.

Does My Niche Matter? What are The Best Niches?

Yes, niche matters, but not as much as you would think. What matters more is that you write sales centred content like review articles, and that choose to focus on marketing products that will pay you a decent commission.

For example, let’s say that you run a lifestyle blog and like to talk about personal development. There are a couple of things that you could market, all the way from books to online courses. Books typically cost around $10 a piece, and 10% of that is nothing magical.

On the other hand, courses and info products often sell for $100-$200 AND you might even earn a higher commission from recommending them (usually up to 40%), so for just one sale you could end up banking $80.

This is why your niche is actually not as important as you may think. There will always great products to promote, no matter what niche you’re in.

Tips On Getting Approved By Affiliate Networks

Most of these affiliate networks will be pretty easy and straightforward to join. Before you apply, make sure that you have these few things in check:

  • Have a blog. Most affiliate networks require you to be a publisher, thus it’s much easier to get accepted to an affiliate network if you already have a blog. If you don’t, check out my super simple guide on how to start a blog today, or sign up to my FREE email course where I teach you exactly how to build a profitable, successful blog.

  • Have a few pages of content. Affiliate networks want to see that they’re partnering with a reputable blogger, so make sure that your blog looks great and that there are no “under construction” pages!
  • In your application, clearly explain how you will be an asset to their team and how you plan to promote their products

Tips To Take Your Amazon Affiliate Earnings To The Next Level

If you are new to affiliate marketing, the best place to get started with it from my experience is Amazon Affiliates. This is because SO many people shop on Amazon all the time compared to any other retailer.

Amazon Affiliates is how I originally started making money with affiliate marketing. It started out slow, but after a few months, I was able to go from $69 per month in affiliate marketing to over $1,000 per month.

Now, every month, I make between $3,000-$7,000 directly with affiliate marketing. It’s consistently one of my top sources of income.

In this book, I show you exactly how I find lucrative blog post ideas and turn them into money making machines. And the best thing? After the work is done, the income is passive!

Tips On Getting Approved By RewardStyle


Although it is relatively simple to get approved by Awin and ShareaSale,  getting approved by RewardStyle is a whole different process. RewardStyle is an affiliate program for fashion bloggers as well as beauty and home decor bloggers.

RewardStyle usually offers a higher percentage to its affiliates than normal. For example, if you were to join the Boohoo affiliate program through their own website, you would earn 7% commission. Through RewardStyle, you would earn 14%! That’s double the money!

RewardStyle is my favourite affiliate program after Amazon Affiliates because it’s very intuitive to use and works amazingly well for fashion bloggers. It has ALL the advertisers that Awin has, and many from ShareaSale too, which is why I now mostly only use RewardStyle – everything is compact and in one place.

The only caveat is that they are pretty exclusive and it’s quite hard to join the crew.

To be even considered a candidate for RewardStyle, you need to have at least 4 months of consistent blogging content behind you that contains the following attributes:

  • Engaged and Growing Audience
  • Consistency
  • Quality and Original Content
  • Clean Editorial Design

Lucky for you, I can help you out a little with your application process.

Getting referred by another blogger who’s already using the platform will greatly increase your chances of getting accepted.

What About Shopstyle?


Shopstyle is a another great affiliate program for fashion bloggers. Instead of getting paid by every sale that you refer to the advertiser, you will get paid for every click that you generate (CPC).

This amount starts from $0.05 per click and is then adjusted depending on how much money you drive to the retailers.

I would recommend Shopstyle when you’re just starting out with affiliate marketing because you don’t need to worry about generating sales, but it’s not great for those of you who are already generating sales – trust me, you’ll be losing money if you keep using them.

I recently increased my earnings by 90 times from one link just by changing that link from a CPC click to a RewardStyle link. Read more about it here.

Furthermore, ShopStyle has announced that they’ll be moving away from their CPC model soon, so they’ll just be an extension to what AwinShareaSale and RewardStyle are already doing.


Conclusion


I hope that this post about the best fashion affiliate programs for bloggers was helpful to you and that you can start reaping the benefits of affiliate marketing ASAP! Remember that there are no downsides to getting started with affiliate marketing, so even if your traffic isn’t very high yet, you should still start implementing affiliate marketing sooner rather than later.

Once the links are on your website, you’re set. After that, affiliate marketing will be pretty passive, and you can focus your energy back on promoting and creating new content.

  1. I’m curious about your updated opinion on SSC versus RS now that they both use the same tactic for making money.

    1. Maria Julia says:

      Hi Bailey! Personally I haven’t tried Shopstyle’s new RS-style monetization method – I decided to stay on the Pay per click method (It’s still available until further notice). However, in theory they should work the same.
      I personally prefer Rewardstyle because they work with pretty much every brand under the sun, and they have a nifty plugin that makes it super easy to fetch links when you’re browsing on retailer’s sites! 🙂

    1. Maria Julia says:

      My pleasure! 🙂

  2. Great information your shared! Please are we paying to join Awin? i got confused at the verification.

    1. Maria Julia says:

      Hi Clara! Yes for AWIN you will need to deposit $5 to activate your account, but it will go towards your balance so you’ll get it back with your next payment 🙂 x

  3. Theme Slate says:

    Thanks for the informative post and this post will be very helpful for the beginners. I hope you will write to us continuously and I regularly follow and wait for your new post.

    1. Maria Julia says:

      Hi there, thanks for the positive comment! I write weekly posts so you can expect to see more helpful here on a regular basis 🙂 x

  4. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
    designer to create your theme? Excellent work!

    1. Maria Julia says:

      Thank you! 🙂 I’m actually using the Divi theme/framework and I’ve built my website on top of that myself – it’s not too complicated at all! x

  5. I like your post, it is written well

    I believe also in the product owner’s sales page, I always consider if I am lured to buy a particular product from how well the sales page then you have a high chance that other visitors will do

    I also wrote about a blog post about Affiliate Marketing, I wanted to nail down to why beginners don’t make affiliate money these days

    1. Maria Julia says:

      Hi Sam! I definitely agree with you. The sales page has a huge effect on how well sales convert! Amazon is the king of conversions.

  6. Thank you I will definitely try this . Like your content.

  7. Wow Maria,
    Since I discovered your blog I cannot get enough of all the knowledge you share. I watched your YouTube Pinterest videos and I downloaded your eBooks, the next step is to buy your eBook Explosive Traffic with Tribes. You are such an inspiration for many bloggers and you actually know what you doing.

    1. Maria Julia says:

      Thank you so much for you kind comment, Maria! 🙂

  8. Hello! most of my clothes are sent to me for collabs or purchased from small boutiques on instagram. how can i convert those into sales? Would I just link similar items on reward style or amazon?

    1. Maria Julia says:

      You could do that! However, for the best sales and conversion rates I would recommend only working with brands that already have an affiliate program in place!

  9. Affiliate Marketing is currently my top source of blog income, which I love because it’s passive! Still not making enough for it to replace my day-to day full-time job income, but I would truly love for it to in 2021. That way I can quit my job and focus on growing my online presence and business! I’m definitely interested in your e-book!
