Types of Affiliate Marketing that Baby Boomers Love

Almost every product and service on the internet has the potential to have an affiliate program. If you are on a website and you scroll to the bottom sometimes there is a link on the bottom of the page that will take you to their affiliate program.

Some of the affiliate sites that are more common are




Share a Sale


Commission Junction to name a few.

Here is a video that shows you how to select products from Clickbank



When you first start it can be very tempting to promote everything you like nut this is a sure way to not succeed. You see if you try to promote too many products your efforts will get watered down.

A niche can be very big and broad and you will get lost in the crowd.

Choose your niche and then select an area that is a sub-niche. So say you are concentrating on weight loss, you can choose a sub-niche such as weight loss for menopausal women. This way you have a target market who also have a pain that they want to find a solution for.

It may be hard to stay focussed as you will be tempted when you hear about others making money using this niche and that niche but if you start to jump around your focus will be watered down. Have you heard about the fox that tried to chase two rabbits? He came home empty handed but the fox that chased one had a rabbit to feed his family.

What Types of Products Can You Sell

Digital Products

There are many types of products you can sell. Digital products are probably the most popular among Internet Marketers.  Many use Review Blogs where they may make a video interviewing the creator of the product and then review the product themselves. They then send the viewer off to their affiliate link using a call to action.

Digital products can include simple ebooks or complete tutorial courses. Apps are also included in this category

Physical Products 

Physical products such as Books, vacuum cleaners, kitchen appliances. Perhaps the best affiliate program for this is Amazon. They have a Partner Program rather than an affiliate program

Another Site that I absolutely love that you can design your own products or sell their products as an affiliate is Gearbubble. You can use this platform to create and sell your own products or you can be an affiliate for other peoples products

Here are some of the products you can make designs for

DesignByHumans is a t-shirt design competition site. It also has a large user base and often has themed competitions depending on what’s trending. It’s less of a free for all compared to Red Bubble so there is less in terms of quantity but that means the standards are kept very high.

Jinx is also a gaming and nerd t-shirt site, however they specialize more and more in licensed designs. Such as Diablo, Minecraft, Portal etc.

Don’t forget, when choosing which affiliate programs to join don’t let commission rate be the main deciding factor. If you do well enough you can often negotiate higher commissions. We hope this has been of assistance. Good luck earning those affiliate commissions!



This site does not have an affiliate program but it is very easy to set up your own designed tshirts
