Are you looking to start making more money through affiliate marketing?
Today, we’ll show you how to do high-ticket affiliate marketing. This is a great way to make more commission on each sale and increase your income as an affiliate marketer.
Follow these 7 steps, and you’ll be well on becoming a successful affiliate marketer. These tips will help you start high-ticket affiliate marketing and generate more income.
What Is High-Ticket Affiliate Marketing?
High-ticket affiliate marketing involves promoting and selling products or services with a high price tag. As an affiliate, you earn a commission on each sale you make.
The key to successful high-ticket affiliate marketing is finding the right products or services to promote. Not all products or services are created equal; some will be much easier to sell than others. Also, not all niches will be suitable for high-ticket affiliate marketing.
You’ll need to research to find the right products or services to promote. Once you’ve found a few good options, you can start promoting them and earning commission on each sale.
High-ticket affiliate marketing can be a very lucrative way to make money online, but it takes work and dedication to succeed.
If you’re willing to put in the time and effort, high-ticket affiliate marketing can be a very rewarding way to make money. For instance, you can earn commissions of over $1,000 per sale!
An affiliate marketer is a middleman between the merchant and the customer. The affiliate marketer promotes the product and earns a commission on each sale they make.
The merchant is the one who creates and sells the product. They are also known as vendors.
Your main work is to inform and persuade potential customers to buy the product from the merchant.
You can do this in several ways, such as through blog posts, social media posts, or email marketing.
How Affiliate Marketing Works?
Affiliate marketing is a commission-based marketing program in which businesses pay affiliates a commission for referring customers to their products or services.
Affiliate marketing is a popular way to make money online because it offers a low barrier to entry and can be very profitable.
As an affiliate marketer, you promote products or services on behalf of a company and earn a commission for each sale you make.
To be successful at affiliate marketing, you need to find products or services that you can promote effectively. You also need to build an audience of potential customers interested in what you’re selling.
Once you join a partnership program from a company or affiliate network, you obtain an affiliate link. This is a unique link that tracks the sales you refer to. You earn a commission when a customer clicks on your affiliate link and buys a product or service.
The amount of money you can make with affiliate marketing depends on the products or services you’re promoting, the size of your audience, and the effort you put into promoting your affiliate links.
Why Do High-Ticket Affiliate Marketing?
High-ticket affiliate marketing can be a great way to make more money as an affiliate marketer.
When you promote high-ticket products or services, you can earn a much higher commission on each sale. This means you don’t need to sell as many products to make a good income.
For example, let’s say you’re promoting a product that costs $100. If you earn a 10% commission on each sale, you’ll need to sell 10 products to make $1,000.
However, if you’re promoting a product that costs $1,000, you’ll only need to sell one product to make the same $1,000.
So, what sounds easier to make one sale or ten to make the same amount of money? If you want to make more money with less effort, high-ticket affiliate marketing is the way to go.
Don’t Fall Into The Low-Ticket Affiliate Marketing Trap
One of the biggest mistakes affiliate marketers make is promoting low-ticket products.
Low-ticket products are those that cost less than $100. These products are easy to find and promote but don’t offer a high commission. As a result, you need to sell many of them to make a good income.
You can easily fall into this trap if you aren’t aware because most influencers on YouTube, etc., teach low-ticket affiliate marketing.
There’s nothing wrong with low-ticket affiliate marketing, but it’s not the best way to make money as an affiliate.
The other problem is that low-ticket affiliate marketing is very competitive. You compete with hundreds or thousands of other affiliates promoting the same products. It’s hard to stand out and make a good income.
On the other hand, high-ticket affiliate marketing is much less competitive. Fewer people are promoting high-ticket products, so it’s easier to get noticed and make sales.
Crush Your Limiting Beliefs About High-Ticket Affiliate Marketing
One reason why people don’t pursue high-ticket affiliate marketing is because of their limiting beliefs. Here are some common ones:
- People are not as likely to spend a lot of money on products they buy online.
- It’s too hard to sell high-ticket products.
- I don’t have the skills to promote products that are so expensive.
- I don’t have an audience interested in high-ticket products.
- I need to be an expert in selling high-ticket products.
See, most of these negative thoughts are based on false information or a scarcity mindset.
The truth is people ARE willing to spend a lot of money on products they buy online. In fact, more and more people are doing it every day.
And it’s not just luxury items either. People are happy to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on products that solve their problems or make their lives easier.
Besides, promoting low-ticket affiliate products often requires more work than promoting high-ticket items. And the return on investment (ROI) is usually much lower.
So, if you’re serious about making money with affiliate marketing, focus on high-ticket products. These products will help you make a good income without endless work hours.
What High-Ticket Products Can You Promote?
You can promote digital and physical products online. And there are high-ticket products in just about any niche you can think of.
What Are High-Ticket Digital Products?
Digital products are those that can be downloaded or accessed online. They include items like:
- Online courses
- Software programs
- Membership site platforms
Digital products are generally cheaper to produce and can be sold at a lower price than physical products. They are also easier to distribute, which means you can reach a larger audience.
Commission rates for digital products can vary depending on the product. However, most digital products have a commission rate of 40% or more.
However, digital products often sell worse than physical products because people like to hold and touch physical items. They also tend to trust them more.
What Are High-Ticket Physical Products?
Physical products have the advantage of being tactile, and they also tend to have a higher perceived value than digital products. However, they are more expensive to produce, ship, and store. They include items like:
Physical products usually have a higher price tag than digital products. And they often have a lower commission rate, typically around 10%.
However, you can make a lot of money promoting high-ticket physical products because people are willing to spend more money on them. For example, selling a car for $50,000 at a 5% commission can earn you a $2,500 commission.
How to Begin with High-Ticket Affiliate Marketing?
Now that you know what high-ticket affiliate marketing is and why it’s so profitable let’s look at how you can get started.
STEP 1) How To Find The Perfect High-Ticket Affiliate Marketing Niche?
You can find high-ticket products in just about any niche. However, some niches are better than others when it comes to finding high-ticket items. Here are three of the best options.
1) Health & Fitness
Health and fitness are among the best niches for high-ticket affiliate marketing because people always look for ways to improve their health. They’re also willing to spend a lot of money on products that will help them look and feel better.
There are many different types of health and fitness products you can promote. Including:
- Personal training programs
- Online fitness courses
- Workout programs
- Exercise equipment
- Dietary supplements
- Yoga and meditation retreat
So, if you’re interested in promoting high-ticket items, health and fitness is a great niche to consider.
2) Business & Money
People are always looking for ways to make more money and improve their financial situation. So, it’s no surprise that “business and money” is another great niche for high-ticket affiliate marketing.
There are many different types of products you can promote in this niche, such as:
- Online courses on investing or building businesses
- Memberships to exclusive business clubs
- Webinars on business or money topics
- High-end business coaching programs
- Seminars and events
My favorite niche is business and money because there are so many different types of products you can promote. And people are always willing to spend money on products that will help them make more money. They also like coaching programs and most likely want to make a coaching contract to get success.
3) Luxury Travel
Travel is another great niche for high-ticket affiliate marketing. People love to travel and always look for ways to make their travel experiences more luxurious.
However, this niche is best for physical products because people don’t want to spend much money on travel-related digital products. Instead, they’re looking for things like:
- High-end travel experiences
- Luxury hotels and resorts
- Exclusive travel clubs
If you’re interested in promoting physical products, luxury travel is a great niche to consider.
How To See If Your Niche Has High-Ticket Programs?
If none of the previous niches interest you, don’t worry. You can find high-ticket affiliate programs in just about any niche. Here’s a quick strategy:
Open your web browser and search “Highest Paying [Your Niche] Affiliate Programs.” For instance:
- Highest Paying Fitness Affiliate Programs
- Highest Paying [Your Niche] Affiliate Programs
If there are many results, that’s a good sign. It means there are plenty of high ticket affiliate programs in your niche.
STEP 2) How To Find High-Paying Affiliate Programs?
Now that you know which niches are best for high-ticket affiliate marketing, it’s time to find affiliate programs to join.
First, I recommend avoiding popular affiliate networks like Clickbank, JVzoo, etc. The reason is simple…
The vast majority of affiliate programs on these networks are low-ticket. So, it’s going to be very difficult to find high-ticket items.
Instead, you should use the strategy explained before. Simply search for “Highest Paying Affiliate Programs” in your niche.
Read the blog posts that are listed. They will tell you about high-ticket affiliate programs that you can join.
For example, here’s what I found when I searched for “Highest Paying Fitness Affiliate Programs”:
Once you have the details of a few high-ticket affiliate programs, you can go to those companies’ websites and register to become an affiliate.
Or, you can simply search “[Company’s name] Affiliate Program.”
STEP 3) How To Promote High-Ticket Items?
After you find high-ticket affiliate programs that fit your niche, it’s time to master how to market those products. The three best ways to promote these products are:
1) YouTube Affiliate Marketing
To get started, you can create a channel on a specific niche. Or, if you have one, you should already have a few high-ticket programs in mind. If you can’t find any in your niche, probably that niche is not suitable for high-ticket items.
For each product, you want to promote, create a video review or tutorial. You can also do unboxing videos if the product is physical. Once again, your main task as an affiliate is to help people make a buying decision by providing valuable and useful information about the product.
Once you have a few videos live on YouTube, start promoting them through social media and other channels. You can also run ads on YouTube to get more views for your videos.
To guarantee maximum conversion, include your affiliate links here:
- The first line of your video description so people can easily see it.
- Use the video cards to link to your affiliate products.
- Mention throughout your video for your audience to click on the link in the description.
- After you post your video, pin a comment with your affiliate link.
Remember, not everyone is tech-savvy and knows how to find links in the description, etc. So, make it easy for people to find your links by putting them in more than one place.

2) Blog Affiliate Marketing
One of the most lucrative ways to make money with high-ticket affiliate products is through a blog.
If you don’t have a blog, starting one would be a good idea. If you already have a blog, that’s great! You can still use it to make money with high-ticket items.
However, for a new blog, don’t make the mistake of naming it something like:
- BestPaleoDietsHQ .com
- CheapDesktops .com
- LuxuryTravelPlaces .com
Not only it sounds ugly, but it also forces you only to write blog posts about that one specific thing. If those products don’t sell well, or later down the road, you want to promote something else… you’re stuck.
Instead, I recommend starting a blog with a more general name in your niche. For example:
- NomadicMatt .com (about travel)
- JohnDoeFitness .com (about fitness)
- BradCopperz .com (about anything you want)
The other reason… You want to build a brand around your blog rather than a small niche website that used to work back in the day. These days, it’s all about creating a brand, an audience, and selling high-ticket products to that audience.
To promote high-ticket items on your blog, write detailed reviews or helpful guides about those products. You should explain the following:
- What is the product?
- Who is it for?
- How does it work?
- What are the benefits?
- Is it worth the price tag?
- Where can people buy it?
You can check your competitor’s content to understand better what to write. If you can provide more value than anyone else, there’s a good chance people will buy from you.
As always, include your affiliate link in your blog posts so people can buy the products you’re promoting.
3) Social Media Network
If you have a large social media following, you can make a lot of money by promoting high-ticket items to your followers. Or you can build a social media following (here)
This method is similar to YouTube affiliate marketing or blogging. The key is to provide value and help people make a buying decision by sharing your experience with the product.
You can do this in several ways:
- Share a photo of you using the product on Instagram with a caption explaining what it is and why you like it.
- Do a video review on Facebook Live or another platform showing people what the product is, how it works, and why they need it.
- Write a detailed review on Twitter, LinkedIn, or another social media site.
No matter which platform you use, make sure to include your affiliate link so people can buy the product you’re promoting.
STEP 4) How To Build An Audience?
The other part of building a successful blog, social media account, or YouTube channel is growing an audience. Whatever platform you choose to promote your high-ticket affiliate programs, remember it takes time and effort to build an audience.
I suggest choosing one platform and focusing on growing your audience there. Learn as much as possible about that platform and how to use it to reach your target audience.
1) Growing Your YouTube Channel
If you want your YouTube channel to thrive, here are a few things you can do:
A) Publish two to three videos weekly. You can create videos that are high-quality and informative. These videos can provide tips on using the affiliate products you promote. You can also create videos that review these products. The informative videos will help you grow your audience, and the reviews will help you make sales.
B) Optimize your videos for SEO. This means using keywords in your title, description, and tags.
C) Create a brand for your channel. This means using a consistent color scheme, logo, and watermark. You should also have a well-designed channel banner.
D) Promote your videos on social media and other platforms. Interact with other YouTubers in your niche. Leave comments on their videos and collaborate with them if possible.
I recommend spending a few hours each week growing your YouTube channel. It doesn’t happen overnight, but if you’re consistent, you will see results.
2) Growing Your Blog
If you’re focusing on growing your blog, you can do a few things:
A) Publish at least one blog post each week. Write helpful, informative blog posts that solve a problem or help people make a buying decision.
B) Optimize your blog posts for SEO. This means using keywords in your title, description, and tags.
C) One important part of having a successful blog is getting links from websites that are seen as more authoritative. You may outreach other bloggers in your niche and ask them to write guest posts. In other words, you write an article for their website where you leave a link back to your website. This is often called a “backlink.” This passes link juice and helps improve your website’s SEO.
I suggest getting Linkody to help with your link-building efforts. This tool can help you improve your website’s SEO. It allows you to track your website’s backlinks, as well as your competitors’ backlinks.
This information can help you get more links to your website, improving your ranking in search engines.
You should spend a few hours each week building your blog. I’d put away at least six to a year to build a successful blog with decent traffic.
3) Growing Your Social Media Accounts
If you want to grow your social media accounts, there are a few things you can do:
A) Post high-quality content that is helpful and informative. This content can be in the form of blog posts, videos, or images.
B) Engage with other users on the platform. Like and comment on their posts. Follow accounts that are relevant to your niche.
C) Use hashtags to reach a wider audience. Hashtags help people find your content who wouldn’t otherwise see it.
D) Use paid advertising if necessary. This will help you reach a larger audience and quickly grow your social media accounts.
The main advantage of social media is that it’s free to use. However, growing your audience on Instagram, Facebook, etc., takes time. I recommend spending at least two hours each week growing your social media accounts.
STEP 5) Mastery
You can become successful at any of these strategies with time, effort, and consistency. Although my preferred platform is blogging for many reasons, you can find success on any platform if you put in the work.
Just because you aren’t having success right away doesn’t mean you should give up. Often this has to do with the following:
- Not having enough content
- Your strategies are off
- You aren’t promoting your content enough
- You need to be patient and keep working hard
You want to become a master at high-ticket affiliate marketing and the only way to do that is to keep learning, keep trying new things, and never give up. Here are a few things you can do to continue your education:
A) Read reputable high-ticket affiliate marketing blogs
B) Subscribe to high-ticket affiliate marketing YouTube channels.
C) Find a good affiliate marketing course. If you’re on a tight budget, you can try Udemy.
D) Join relevant Facebook groups and forums. You can learn a lot from other people’s experiences.
E) Attend live events and webinars. There’s nothing like learning in person from an expert.
Remember, the key to success is taking action and never giving up. If you’re willing to do the work, you can succeed at high-ticket affiliate marketing.
The Bottom Line on High-Ticket Affiliate Marketing
High-ticket affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online without needing to create your products or services. You promote someone else’s products and earn a commission on each sale.
The key to success is to choose the right niche, find high-ticket products or services to promote, and put in the hard work. You should choose one of the platforms mentioned above, learn as much as possible, and take action.
The quickest way to learn is to enroll in a high-quality online video course from a reputable influencer. You’ll have access to training, support, and other resources to help you succeed.
Make sure never to give up and keep learning. With time and consistency, you can achieve anything.
