Which is the best CBD affiliate program?
Whichever program’s products fits your audience & helps you be successful as a marketer. That said, below is my top 3 picks CBD affiliate programs & networks based on my own experience of who pays, has a good interface, offers affiliates tools like deep-link generators, well-converting landers, coupons and other tools that help site owners & marketers better promote their brand(s).
- Diamond CBD – This CBD affiliate program features multiple celebrity brands like Chong Gummies (of Cheech and Chong) – These have a higher click-thru rate than generic sounding CBD brands in my experience. Also, I’ve met the Diamond CBD affiliate team at conferences and they have cool stickers 😉
- Nutra Pure – Multiple brands with a range of wellness products, including pet CBD products which seem to be a well-converting niche. Most importantly, they pay & trustworthy from my personal experience.
- Shareasale – Large affiliate network, featuring 100s of CBD brands across dozens of merchants. I’ve worked with them for 10+ years. They pay like clockwork. I recommend them as a good starting point for those new to affiliate marketing (or as my first choice for an alternative to Amazon Affiliates). In fact, to access the Diamond CBD affiliate program you’ll need an account at Shareasale — where the program is managed.
How to become an CBD affiliate?
First, you need to learn about and become an affiliate in general. Affiliate marketing is broad term for referring others to products you do not directly sell yourself. You’ll need some sort platform to promote other’s products, for most affiliates this is done by websites. Though — social media, podcasting and other possibilities exist.
Once you have an audience, you’ll need to find merchants to team up with as an affiliate. The list on this page is a good start, but you might want to look at networks first, as they give you access to many brands in one centralized interface.
How to avoid CBD affiliate scams?
Be weary of new merchants, especially those with in-house affiliate programs. There are many companies who create affiliate programs with no intention of ever paying their affiliates.
How big is the CBD Market?
Retail sales in the USA surpassed 1 billion dollar in 2019, and some are forecasting that number to increase 10-fold to over 10 billion by 2024.
According to a 2019 Consumer Reports survey of 4000 people:
- 40% of 18-29 year olds,
- 32% of 30-44 year olds ,
- and 23% of 45-59 year olds … have tried CBD products.
