I often searched for the best affiliate programs for indians on Google due to the huge potential of affiliate marketing but never got an answer that satisfied me. So I decided to try out the most popular affiliate programs myself and then see which of them turn out to be the most profitable ones. So based on my own testing and results, here are some of the best affiliate programs for Indians according to me.
1. Hostgator : If your niche is blogging, this could make a lot of money for you. Since a lot of Indians want to become bloggers so its the right time to promote web hosting programs and get huge commissions on the people you refer. Hostgator pays you $50 for each referral sale and you can even get $125 per sale if you make more than 21 sales in a month.
2. DreamHost : Dreamhost is among the most trusted web hosting companies on the internet and pays you a huge $97 commission for each referral sale. Many bloggers are earning a very good income from DreamHost affiliate program and they have different kinds of banners which you can put up on your blog to refer some sales. Also with their great conversion rate, DreamHost affiliate program can provide you with hefty commissions month after month. And you don’t even have to sign up for their hosting. Just refer people and earn $97 and then $5 for evey sub-referral they refer !!
3. Shaadi.com : Shaadi.com is the number one matrimonial website in India and has been around for several years. It pays you upto Rs. 25 per free signup and upto Rs. 2000 for paid membership. It can earn you thousands of rupees if most of your blog visitors are from India and preferably young. (Since they are more likely to marry :P)
4. Commission Junction : CJ is almost an affiliate store, with thousands of products, out of which you can choose the ones you wish to promote. Many Indians bloggers have successfully managed to earn a good amount of money from CJ promoting products related to their blog’s niche.
5. DGM-India : It is a very popular affiliate program among Indian bloggers and probably a trusted one as well. DGM pays you commission on each lead you make and there are various types of campaigns you can opt for.
I have specifically not listed some of the other affiliate programs like Affiliate Curry, ClixGaloreIndia, Tyroo etc. because the ones listed above are proven earners, so you could trust them blindly and focus all your attention and efforts on them.
