What are the top affiliate marketing niches?

The top niches aren’t specific to affiliates versus product creators. They’re all going to be the same. But some allow affiliates to make more money because they combine tangible and digital opportunities. Let’s take a look –


The topic of relationships is one of the top niches online – people wanting to meet compatible matches and people wanting to save their existing relationships. But there aren’t as many tangible items you can promote in this niche. It’s primarily info product related.


Money is a similar niche that primarily has digital info product courses available to promote. But keep in mind that these two top niches have courses online that pay out a nice amount per sale – and plenty of people searching for them online.

Diet and Nutrition

Diet and Nutrition is a niche that’s evergreen in nature, suitable for both genders and many age groups – plus it offers a bevy of opportunities to sell both digital and tangible items. There are many online digital courses to help with weight loss, and many of them cater to a specific audience, like baby boomers, women in general, and women of certain ages.

On the tangible side, you could promote many things in the diet niche through sites like Amazon. You could do a review of an info product course and then pair it with tangible promotions for things like treadmills, elliptical machines, DVD exercise sets, Kettleballs, supplements, and so much more.


Self-help is a always popular niche. People are looking for more mindset advice, stress relief, building self-esteem, and more. You can pair an info product course promotion with the promotion of items like soothing candles, supplements, stress-busting gadgets, and even massage technology.


Insomnia is a popular niche. Sleep disorders are very common and there are both digital and tangible products available for you to promote on your site. Along with a digital course, think of tangibles like better bedding, soothing CDs, sleep masks, white noise machines, sleep supplements, and more. In the right combination, it could be possible to combine the insomnia niche with weight loss and stress.


Coffee and other gourmet foods are consistently popular. When you have someone who is an enthusiast for coffee, they’ll spend top dollar on a variety of things – from courses teaching them about the topic to special tangible items like coffee grinders, brewers, beans, and more.


Parenting is a popular niche too. This is a niche where moms and dads like to get advice on raising their kids and there are also many tangible items for them to buy like nursery furniture, toys, educational items, clothes and more.


Pets are great affiliate niches and you can specialize in one that you enjoy and run with it. The most popular are dogs, cats, and tropical fish but if you are knowledgeable on say bearded dragon lizards then run with that. You can buy both info products on things like how to care for tropical fish and tangible items like fancy aquariums, fish food and tank décor.


Then there are a slew of household items that comprise a very big niche whether were talking indoors or outdoors. Homeowners are always buying like items blenders, vacuums, lawnmowers, sheds, gardening supplies and more. They also buy info products to go with them like – how to grow tomatoes or have greener lawns. You could sell everything from the fertilizers and seeds to the pots they grow in!
