9 Best Christian Affiliate Programs

If you’re a Christian who’s decided to go into affiliate marketing, you may be a little puzzled when it comes to choosing your niche. After all, finding a niche, or specialized area to market, is an important decision. Experienced affiliate marketers will tell you to choose something you already know. Offering products that will be appreciated by a Christian audience deserves your attention. There are lots of companies that offer products your customers will appreciate. My 9 Best Christian Affiliate Programs will help you narrow your search.

Why These Nine Companies?

The first thing I looked at while I was putting this list together was the appearance of the company’s website.  I was looking for three things I think is important.

  • The site should be attractive to your customers, and easy to navigate.
  • The site should offer products that your customers will find desirable, and worth the purchase price.
  • The company and their products should also be worth the time and energy you’re going to put into promoting them.

With that in mind, I also took a look at the following criteria:

  • Average sale.
  • Commission rates.
  • Cookie duration.
  • Application process.
  • Marketing materials provided.

Why Christian Products and Companies?

Wondering why you should choose Christian products as your niche?   There are lots of reasons; I’ve highlighted three.

  • Christian products are exclusive and can’t be found everywhere.
  • Christians focus on living by a set of standards not everyone adheres to.
  • Providing quality Christian products and services can be seen as a ministry.

Christian Products Are Exclusive.

Christian products fall into a fairly specialized range. You can’t just walk into your local department store or jewelry store and find products geared to Christian customers. The only exception I’m aware of is the Bible.  Most bookstore in the U.S. have a selection of bibles. Otherwise, it can be slim pickings when you’re looking for an item with a Christian focus.

Christians Focus on Specific Standards.

Christian shoppers didn’t have a problem when most of the entertainment industry adhered to “G” standard products. It’s a very different story today. Trying to find music and videos that are appropriate for you and your children can feel like an impossible task.

Providing Products and Services is a Ministry.

Providing your customers with the sort of quality Christian products you want for yourself and your family is a form of “doing unto others.” With the current world health crisis, even more people are looking for ways to strengthen their faith.9 Best Christian Affiliate Programs - Church Crowd

I was listening to a pastor in southern California a few days ago as he was discussing the outcome of holding their 2020 Easter services online. He mentioned that previous year’s inhouse Easter services had an attendance of around 1500 people. This year, with churches closed during the Easter 2020 season,  almost 100,000 people attended their online services.

People are looking for the products and services that a Christian online business can provide.

How This List is Organized

I’ve broken the products I’m presenting into the following five categories:

  • Bibles, Books, Educational and Inspirational Materials.
  • Entertainment
  • Clothing
  • Jewelry
  • Christian Dating Service

If you’re setting up an online business in a Christian niche, I encourage you to explore the companies below.

BettesBoxOfBlessings.com

9 Best Christian Affiliate Programs - BettesBoxOfBlessings.com

Bette’s Box of Blessings isn’t like the other companies I’ve outlined for you. It’s a box-of-the-month, subscription program that pays you for each new subscription. It doesn’t pay much, but depending on your customer base, it may be something you’ll be interested in. I find it absolutely charming, and see real ministry value in it.

The site is very simple since all they offer is the monthly box, and an opportunity to purchase previous month’s boxes if they’re available. The idea is to use what’s meaningful for you, and gift others with the items that you believe would be meaningful to them.

Bette states that her goal is to provide customers with unique, quality Christian products, and to change the world through sharing God’s word, one box at a time.

There’s a new theme each month. The theme for the May 2020 box is God’s Peace, and includes the following items:

  • A frame-able print (It’s on the right of the CD case in the photo.).
  • Prayers to share – 100 Encouraging Notes for Tough Times and Tough People.
  • Laurie Pawlik’s book, Growing Forward When You Can’t Go Back.
  • 51 Must Have Modern Worship Hits 2, a 3-disc music CD.
  • The Heart Shaped Life, a daily devotional journal.
  • 10 Christian encouragement greeting cards.

Are you wondering if I bought a subscription to Bette’s Box of Blessings?

Yep! I did. The monthly fee is $29.99. Your customers can also opt to pay $79.00 for a three-month subscription, or $154.99 for a six-month subscription. Shipping and handling adds an additional $4.99 each month

The photo shows the items that will be in my May 2020 box.

You’ll want to let your customers know that the boxes have a retail value of at least $60. They’ll also want to know that their order will renew automatically, and they can cancel at any time.

Bette’s Box of Blessings does a couple of things to help their affiliates build sales.

  • They provide promo codes so you can offer $5 off the first month’s subscription.
