To create an effective affiliate store, it's advisable to consider two key aspects: finding your niche based on your passion, and selecting an appropriate affiliate program.
Find your niche
By choosing a niche that matches your passion, you benefit from several advantages:
- Motivation and commitment: Working on a theme you're passionate about keeps you motivated and committed to developing your affiliate store. You'll be more inclined to invest time and effort in creating quality content.
- Expertise and credibility: If you have a passion for a specific niche, chances are you have in-depth knowledge in that field. This expertise will enable you to create informative and relevant content, reinforcing your credibility in the eyes of your audience.
- Connecting with your audience: By sharing your passion through your affiliate store, you'll be able to connect more easily with your target audience. People who share your interest will be more likely to engage with your content and trust your recommendations.
You can use Ubbersuggest to validate your niche. This will enable you to propose a product theme that web users are looking for without being too competitive, by checking :
- The search volume, ideally between 500 and 5,000 searches per month
- The SEO difficulty, ideally between 0 and 60
💡 Useful Tip
If the volume equals 0, remove linking words, adjectives and accents from your keywords.
Finding my affiliate partners
Once you've identified your niche, it's essential to choose an affiliate program that matches your goals and your theme. Here are a few points to consider:
- Relevant products or services: Look for affiliate programs that offer products or services relevant to your niche. Visitors to your site will be more likely to buy products that match their interests and needs, increasing your chances of conversion.
- Commission and remuneration policy: Check the commission rates offered by the affiliate program. Also research payment terms and thresholds to ensure they match your financial expectations.
- Tools and support: Find out about the tools and resources provided by the affiliate program. Some programs offer marketing kits, banner ads, tracking links and other useful resources to help promote products.

Can I work with an affiliate partner other than Amazon?
To find affiliate partners, you can follow these steps:
- Search for affiliate programs: Search online for affiliate programs in your field. Many companies offer affiliate programs, so simply search for terms such as "your niche name + affiliate program" or "company name + affiliate program".
- Use affiliate networks: Affiliate networks bring together numerous affiliate programs within a single platform. Register on these platforms and explore the different offers available.
- Contact companies directly: If you've identified specific companies you'd like to work with, go to their websites and search for information on affiliate partnerships. Some companies have dedicated affiliate pages where you can find details and instructions on how to apply.

It's important to note that, for the time being, you'll need to manually update your products' prices, stocks and promotions, unless you opt for an API integration that enables automatic synchronization with your partner advertisers.
💡 Useful Tip
By combining a niche based on your passion with a suitable affiliate program, you'll be able to create a more attractive affiliate store, provide relevant content and maximize your chances of generating income through affiliate commissions.
It's important to note that finding the right niche and affiliate program can take time and fine-tuning. Don't hesitate to test and adjust your strategy as you go along to find the best balance between your passion and revenue opportunities.
