The adult entertainment industry is much more than sexy models creating even sexier content for the masses. In fact, the industry includes hookups and dating. Adult Site Broker has worked in every corner of the adult industry for over two decades. And, some of our work has entered into the realm of adult and niche dating websites.
But, the money is in affiliate marketing for those who don’t own the actual dating website networks. As we’ve been saying for years, one of the fastest-growing segments of the adult industry is affiliate marketing. In this new blog post. We discuss some of the best mainstream, adult, and niche dating affiliate programs to work with.
eHarmony.com is a staple in the online dating industry. A mainstream dating site catering to everybody, eHarmony was the brainchild of clinical psychologist Neil Clark Warren and his son-in-law. The company is considered one of the largest online dating websites in the world. Catering to older millennials, eHarmony markets itself as a dating app that focuses on coupling and soulmate searching. It isn’t a “hookup site” like Tinder. The affiliate program eHarmony offers is designed to be an affiliate advertising scheme that allows affiliates in the company’s program to earn a percentage of leads or sales generated from external marketing drives. This would be a great affiliate marketing program for webmasters and site owners who have dating traffic in North America, particularly the United States, segmented to deal in soulmate searching.
Ashley Madison is a staple in the adult dating segment. Launched in 2001, Ashley Madison claims to be the very first dating website for married people seeking to cheat on their mate. According to the company, the discreteness provided to Ashley Madison members is one of the hallmarks of what attracts users. There are currently over 60 million users on Ashley Madison’s platform. The website offers an affiliate program, which includes CPA and CPL revenue share models built for five spoken languages and over fifty geographical jurisdictions all over the world. This is ideal for webmasters with robust traffic from sources all over the world. Payouts are bimonthly.
The Friend Finder Networks, the corporate parent of the legendary sex hookup site Adult Friend Finder, maintains the Cash.FFN.com programs website. Friend Finder Networks offers a variety of affiliate programs for casual hookups, mainstream dating, niche dating, and BDSM dating. By doing so, the FFN Cash program is one of the largest adult dating affiliate programs in not only the adult industry but the entire affiliate marketing space. Across the network’s various dating sites, the programs for revenue generation include percentage programs, models to monetize your existing traffic by geographical location, or through a cost-per-lead format. Payouts are weekly and these affiliate programs offer landing pages and high-level tracking.
Zoosk is one of the largest dating websites in the world. The online dating platform is owned by yet another parent company dealing with mainstream and niche dating, including international and religious. There are affiliate marketing options for Zoosk through many external platforms. According to the site Knoji, Zoosk has a highly-rated affiliate marketing program that can earn commissions by simply directing traffic and new customers to the dating website and its overall network of connected dating sites. The actual Zoosk affiliate program is more of a referral program for traffic that pays out regular commissions to those who provide valuable traffic.
EliteSingles is an online dating website that is owned by the same company that owns Zoosk. Like Zoosk, this platform has a similar framework to how they conduct affiliate marketing. The website FlexOffers is one of the hosting platforms for the EliteSingles affiliate program. This program is similar to the external program that is used by Zoosk to gain traffic through the affiliate marketing schemes of directing traffic and new customers to the dating website and its overall network of connected dating sites. Like the Zoosk affiliate program, the EliteSingles program is more of a referral program for traffic that pays out commissions for valuable referrals.
WhaleCash.com is an affiliate marketing network that deals with all sorts of sites and traffic. This includes adult sites, niche content, dating, and mainstream affiliate programs. One of the key differences between WhaleCash and the other programs and companies discussed here focuses on the fact that WhaleCash is an affiliate marketing network. According to the website, WhaleCash is one of the “web’s premier affiliate networks” with “exclusive offers [that] help you make massive cash off your display, social, email, pop, and search traffic” across the segment. Try not to confuse WhaleCash with other similar-sounding adult industry affiliate networks that contain “whale” in the title.
