Best Affiliate Programs in the UK

Best Affiliate Programs in the UK

I love making money through affiliate marketing. If you don’t know what it is, it’s where you recommend a product/service to someone else, and if they sign up, you as the referrer receive some kind of benefit – often money. Below I have rounded up a few of the best affiliate programs in the UK, in my opinion.

Anyone!

How to make money through affiliate programs

When you sign up, you will have a link (called an affiliate or a refer a friend link) that you can share with others. Here are some suggestions of ways you can share it:

  • Get your family members to sign up
  • Share with your friends via email/Whatsapp
  • Share on social media
  • Promote via forums (like Reddit)
  • Promote via a blog
Here are some of the best affiliate programs in the UK (in my opinion)

Whilst there are so many schemes that are out there that will earn you pennies, I am highlighting the below three because they offer a real chance to make some good money.

Trading 212

How does it work?

Sign up to Trading 212 and deposit £1 – I’ve written a full post about Trading 212 with more information here. For each person who clicks your link and funds their account (i.e. deposits £1), you get a free share worth up to £100. The person you referred also gets a free share too. You can refer up to 20 people.

Once you’ve signed up, look for the ‘Get free shares!’ option on the menu – you will find your unique referral link here.

Topcashback

How does it work?

Sign up to Topcashback, if you haven’t already. Here’s a blog post I have previously written explaining how Topcashback works. For each new person you refer to Topcashback you will receive £7.50, but there are often promotional spells where you can earn a whopping £20 (the person you refer must generate £10 in payable cashback before the referral bonus will be paid). The person you refer also benefits from a £5 sign up bonus from using your link.

For each person who clicks your link and funds their account (i.e. deposits £50), you get to spin a wheel to get a free share in either Nike, Dropbox or GoPro (worth between approximately £4 – £90 at the time of writing). The person you referred also gets a free share too.

Once you’ve signed up there would be a ‘Free Stock’ button at the top of your app – click this.

Vimba

How does it work?

Sign up to Vimba – I’ve written here about how Vimba works – in brief, it’s a cryptocurrency trading platform where you can set up a direct debit to make automated, regular investments. For every person you refer who then signs up to Vimba, you and them will both receive £15 of Bitcoin, once they have made at least four investments worth £100 in total.

Once you have signed up, there will be a button which says ‘Refer Friends (Earn £15)

FM

How does it work?

I’ve saved my favourite until last… FM World primarily sells fragrances which smell very much like famous perfumes/aftershaves but for a much lower cost. The best thing is that it is free to sign up as a business partner. I have written more about FM here and specifically about signing up as a business partner here. In brief, here is how you can make money:

  • Sign up here which gets you up to 33% off the whole range of FM products every time you personally make a purchase
  • Share your link to get other people to sign up – they too will get up to 33% off and you will also earn points every time they – or someone they refer – makes a purchase. At the end of the month the points get added up and paid as commission.

How do I find my affiliate link to share?

Once you have signed up, you will receive a 7 digit ID number. You can then share your sign up form link which will be as follows: https://register-uk.fmworld.com/XXXXXXX (replace the Xs with your ID code). Get the person you referred to select the ‘preferred customer’ option if they just want to buy products for themselves.
