The Top 9 Indian Affiliate Programs You Must Join Today

by Deepak Kanakaraju on September 20, 2017

Affiliate Marketing is a big industry and there is a range of affiliate programs all over the globe. The likes of ClickBank, Commission Junction and Impact Radius are the networks that come to mind when you think about affiliate marketing. But what if your blog is for the Indian audience and most of your visitors are from India?

You cannot promote international products to the Indian audience. You need to find out products and affiliate programs that are inclined towards the Indian audience.

Here are some reasons why:

  • Brand Affinity: People are likely to buy from a Brand they trust. For instance, people might be willing to buy from Myntra than Macy’s as Myntra has established themselves better in the minds of the Indian consumers.
  • Shipping Issues: If you are selling physical products know that not all international eCommerce sites ship to India. A product being sold on Amazon UK might not be shipped to India. So what is the point of driving an India user to such a product?
  • Indian Affiliate Networks: The advantage of working with Indian affiliate networks is they have more Indian focused advertisers in their network. So you will have a deeper highly focused inventory to promote to your audience.

But not affiliate networks are equal. Even worse, not affiliate networks are honest when it comes to payouts. This is the living reality of the internet.

Even worse, gullible beginners believe their showmanship and get into affiliate marketing with a wrong set of beliefs and end up tasting failure. I’ve been there done that. And I want to make sure that you don’t end up believing in the same myth.

Few of these myths are self-created too. For instance, when I was getting started I believed that Affiliate marketing is something only for the big guys with a huge amount of capital. I thought it was some “secret money making” formula which only a few rich people in the world kept it to themselves.
