CBD affiliate programs are a wonderful way to build passive income in the hemp cannabis industry. Best of all, you don’t need inventory, shipping logistics, customer service, or even a business license! All it takes to sell CBD products online is find a good product and brand, sign up for the CBD affiliate program, and then share links. Affiliate partners receive a commission for every sale they contribute to, although the specific terms are set out in the terms and conditions of each company’s affiliate program.
What is a CBD partner?
A CBD affiliate is an individual or company that promotes another company’s CBD products or services on a commission basis. Although most companies offer cash payments, other companies offer free products or discounts on services. Before joining a CBD affiliate program, it is advisable to check the relevant brand’s website for details on commissions and payments.
There are many good reasons to become a CBD affiliate to become. First of all, affiliate marketing can help build a certain level of awareness in the hemp industry. Also, it can be an excellent source of income, offering potentially unlimited residual income for those who play strategically. And since partners don’t need to have inventory, banking services, or logistics, liability is relatively low, too. (Please note: affiliate partners must comply with the terms and conditions of the respective program).
Of course, most CBD companies also value affiliates for their effective promotional efforts. CBD, in particular, is subject to strict advertising restrictions, making affiliate partners a particularly attractive solution. Essentially, the more partners a company employs to promote its products and brand, the wider the reach.
Because of this, many companies offer CBD affiliate programs to promote their brand. Because of this, potential partners and brands need to research each program well to ensure it aligns with their own brand message. Affiliate marketing takes time. Therefore, one should avoid wasting time with inferior products.
The income potential of an affiliate campaign is directly related to the advertising effort that you put into it. Partners who want to earn big money have to work hard for it.
How to become a successful CBD affiliate
As previously mentioned, CBD is subject to strict marketing standards. Because of this, affiliates need to find innovative ways to promote their affiliate links.
After joining a CBD affiliate program, you should post your individual referral links everywhere – but only to the adult target audience. Where possible, affiliates should limit their target audience to 18+ and follow CBD marketing best practices.
CBD on social media
Joining CBD affiliate programs is just the first step. The next (and most important) is the spread of referral links. One of the most popular places to share CBD referral links is on social media. However, most social media platforms block paid advertising for CBD hemp brands, so organic marketing is crucial. The best way to spread CBD affiliate program links is by commenting on group posts, participating in live product reviews, and sharing informational material (non-ads) relevant to the product you are trying to promote.
Blogging for brands
Blogging is a great way to post interesting information without sounding too “promotional”. Blogging allows the author (affiliate partner) to publish information of interest to their target audience, thereby increasing brand and product awareness. Blogs also provide a good link sharing opportunity that the author can use to direct the reader to a page or product.
In addition, a blog is ideal for creating timeless content (evergreen content) that will still be relevant in many years to come. By creating timeless blogs with cleverly placed referral links, affiliates can build an extensive network of referral links to increase sales opportunities for years to come.
Importantly, affiliate partners must disclose their affiliation with the company, ideally in a place that the reader cannot overlook.
Email Marketing Recommendations
Many CBD affiliates also spread their links via email, which is an incredibly effective marketing strategy, accounting for over 50 percent of sales in some cases. However, email marketing (also known as direct marketing) is subject to special rules. For example, it is illegal to send promotional emails without the recipient’s permission. Email sign-up forms and other opt-in arrangements are the best way to ensure a sender has this permission. Senders must also provide the recipient with an easy way to opt out of receiving email, and clearly state who is sending the email.
By following these email marketing recommendations, CBD affiliates can easily share their referral links with a network of readers who are already interested in the product. By regularly sending out informative emails containing referral links, affiliate partners can reach a large audience on a personal level
