If you are working from home, there is a good chance you start your day with a cup of coffee. You might consider helping many other people begin a great day by finding available gourmet coffee affiliate programs and giving them a chance to move into their morning with an excellent coffee boost. It’s a great niche.
What do you know about coffee? Did you know it is the second largest industry in the world, second only to oil? In this country, the coffee business brings in over $19 billion per year. You will be delighted to know that there are many coffee companies that now offer affiliate programs. In the United States, approximately 100 million people drink coffee every day.
The average coffee drinker in this country spends more than USD $100 each year on coffee. Australia and Singapore are also among the heaviest consumers of the brew, ranking #1 and #2 in consumption. The United States is #3, and New Zealand and South Africa follow.
A large advantage of a niche in the coffee field is that the coffee market is very broad. You can approach it from many angles. Besides the many varieties of coffees offered by different companies, there are any number of other related sub-niches.
For example, you could offer mugs, coffee grinder, brewers such as a French press, roasters, ground coffee or beans, gift baskets, barista lessons, and many more possibilities. You could combine a site that offers products and training, as barista training is a good sub-niche.
The coffee niche is one that will be around for a long time. Though there are a lot of affiliates taking advantage of the popularity of coffee, the niche is not saturated. You can still find plenty of opportunity.
Another good advantage: Once you establish a customer relationship with a visitor, you are quite apt to get repeat sales from the same customer. Coffee is a consumable product that will be used repeatedly, so once your customer has ordered and likes the product, he will be ready to order again and again.
You can find many of the coffee brands or products related to it on Amazon, so if you use Amazon exclusively for links, you are in luck. However, when selling coffee, it makes sense to switch to one of the other umbrella companies offering affiliate links for coffee producers, such as Commission Junction or ShareASale, because you will receive a much higher commission.
Amazon pays approximately 4.5%, and though they offer Prime or fast shipping, you will not make much. Instead of 4.5%, you could be making 8 to 10%, and in some cases, as high as a 20% commission. If you can hook up with Lifeboost Coffee, you will earn the highest coffee commission available, $30 per sale.
Offering a site that combines information about the product plus product options is one good approach. Offering a free newsletter draws interested people. Give an opening bonus to new customers. For example, one company has an opening offer of “buy three and get a fourth one free.” Such an offer provides an excellent CTA.
According to the reviews I read, good keywords for this niche are pretty easy to find, whether for coffee or a related product. Those of us in Wealthy Affiliate have an advantage here because we can use the Jaaxy tool for our keyword research, to help us find the best keywords available.
