Looking for influencer affiliate platforms to join? In this post I share a roundup list of influencer affiliate platforms that I use and enjoy. These influencer affiliate platforms offer influencer affiliate programs that are ideal for those who want to work from home on their own schedule as an affiliate marketer.
What is an influencer affiliate platform?
An influencer affiliate platform is a company to hosts and manages affiliate programs for companies. Instead of joining a zillion affiliate programs, join an affiliate platform and have all of your brands and links in one place. Or, join just several influencer affiliate platforms and expand your opportunities.
Why join an influencer affiliate program?
If you want to become and influencer, or are already an influencer and want to promote products and services you love, joining an influencer affiliate program is a great option for making money online. By sharing affiliate links to products and services you recommend you are helping connect businesses with their ideal customers simply by just writing or talking about their offerings to your audience.
Finding the best influencer affiliate platform for you
There are many, many affiliate platforms for influencers to join, however I choose to just participate with several platforms to make my life a little easier. I choose to join platforms that meet these six criteria:
- Great customer service
- Lot of tools for creating affiliate links
- Lots of brands to choose from
- Easy to navigate website
- Platforms who regularly reach out to me via email and provide offers, assistance and encouragement
- Platforms who have affiliate programs for brands and use and trust
6 best influencer affiliate platforms to join in 2020
Below is a list of affiliate platforms that I have joined and think are the best to also join because they offer great tools for affiliate marketing.
ShareaSale has been offering a great affiliate platform option for many years and I joined it in 2015. I've found that their platform is very easy to navigate, find new brand retailers, and create links to affiliate products and services. They also have a great feature that allows influencers to use what is called a “Data Feed” and search products that a particular brand offers. When using this feature you can easily create affiliate links with images, the brand name, and price all in one window.

I really like the BrandCycle influencer platform website because it is easy to use and navigate. Their platform is slightly different than others because you do not have to sign up for individual company's programs. By simply joining the BrandCycle platform you get access to all of their advertisers and can very easily create links to affiliate products. They also highlight special offers from brands and offer a variety of tools for creating sponsored advertisement banners, links and more. This platform represents many, many big name retailers which is very convenient if you want to promote big box retailers.
The AWin platform is also great. Their website is slightly hard to navigate however AWin makes up for this by offering a huge variety of brands to choose from, most notably the Etsy affiliate program which I promote often.
Formerly known as “Commission Junction”, the CJ affiliate platform is another platform that has a slightly hard to naviagte platform but offers a large variety of affiliates to choose from which is why I am part of their network.
ebay Partner Network
Recently I joined the ebay Partner Network and am very happy I did. I really love promoting second hand and rare items on my sites and ebay is the perfect platform to promote this type of goods. Their platform is operated in-house so you'll need to join this program through the ebay.com website.
Lastly, sometimes there are just items that I cannot find on other affiliate platforms so I do promote Amazon's products from time to time. One perk of promoting items on Amazon is that they sell so many different types of items so I've found that if I refer customers to Amazon they are very likely to purchase something, not necessarily just items that I referred them to.
