freelance writer 50 1

Looking to add an extra revenue stream to your pet business? The pet industry is heaving with fantastic products and services, which you can make income from just for promoting!

Let’s dive into what affiliate marketing is, how you can do it successfully and which pet affiliate marketing programmes you may want to join. 

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing allows you to promote another company’s products or services and earn a commission every time you make a sale. When you sign up for a pet affiliate programme, you’ll be given a unique partner link to use in your promotions. Every time somebody clicks your link and makes a purchase, you make a little money! 

Usually, an affiliate programme will use tracking to monitor any visits to their site for a stated number of days after they’ve clicked your unique affiliate link. This means that even if people don’t buy straight away, you can still earn for the sales you drive. 

Check the specific details of any affiliate partner scheme you consider to discover the commission rate, payout frequency and how long visits are tracked for. 

How to start affiliate marketing

The first thing you need to do is identify pet affiliate marketing opportunities that will appeal to your audience. 

Choose an affiliate programme that offers products or services that would benefit your customers. 

You’re going to have to do a fair bit of promoting to make any money, so be sure to choose products or services that you really rate and want to rave about! 

Consider how you will promote the products/services. Will you blog or vlog about them, share them in your email marketing, social media posts or on your podcast? 

The commission is generally fairly modest, so for it to be worth your while you’re going to have to put some effort in! Again, this is why it’s important that you genuinely rate the product. 

Is affiliate marketing worth it?

Everyone’s favourite answer to a question incoming…. It depends. 

As mentioned, you’re not going to make any money unless you promote and push the product and have an audience who would be interested in buying it. 

If you are willing to put the effort into marketing it and have an interested audience, then it can be a great additional income stream. 

Unless you’re a prolific blogger or influencer, you may not pay the bills with it – but it can provide a nice income boost alongside your main revenue streams.
