Novice affiliate marketers sometimes forget that the most simple of affiliate partnerships are the most lucrative. Hosting plans are essential when starting a website or blog and are an easy sell for those who can convince their readers on “How To Start A Blog.”
Endurance International Company is a large corporation, who have purchased hosting assets with large influencer bases. For example, the company owns BlueHost, HostGator, iPage, and a few smaller ones. What’s the main reason for the BlueHost (and other Endurance) Hosting Affiliate Program success? Let’s take a look!
Why Bloggers Use BlueHost’s Affiliate Program
Where to find BlueHost’s Affiliate Program
Like many e-commerce businesses out there, you can find affiliate programs by:
- Scrolling to the Footer
- On Affiliate Networks (like CJ and Linkshare)
- If popular, they may reach out to you
BlueHost is located on the Commission Junction network, in addition to hosting their affiliate program directly on the BlueHost.com site. As we mentioned in a few articles back…it’s best to go direct whenever you can! Doing a direct affiliate partnership will skip an additional sign up, and give you a closer relationship with the company itself.
Commission and other info
- For each referred hosting plan you can earn anywhere from $65-$100
- Domains do not seem to be commissionable since this is a hosting service
- Domains are included in the commissioned plan, so push that!
- Extract Payouts via PayPal or Check
BlueHost affiliate managers are relatively proactive in getting you going, since they may make their commissions of you as well. In addition to standard links, you could always ask for a customized splash page much like what Smart Passive Income has (and what we have as well)
