Affiliate Programme NZ Directory

Affiliate Programme NZ Directory

Introduction

Being a New Zealander, I have been struggling to find good affiliate programmes for a few of my niche websites and have been a little underwhelmed by the information that’s location (NZ) specific out there.

Whilst affiliate programs are very popular overseas (particularly in the US), New Zealand retailers appear to be having more of a slow burn approach to this emerging marketing. Many of the Affiliate Programme NZ directory listings are out of date, or are simply not being updated or regularly maintained. I’m not talking about affiliate platforms here, I’m referring to the difficulty I’m having in finding suitable New Zealand based products and suppliers who I can promote through my content marketing websites.

“Perhaps it’s just that I have tricky niches to work with. Have you experienced a similar issue when trying to find nationally based affiliate programmes?

Establishing an Affiliate Programme NZ Directory

As a result of my research into this area, I’ve decided to start compiling a list of affiliate programmes within New Zealand. This has been a somewhat laborious process as many sites are advertising affiliate programmes that don’t exist or have since ceased training.

However, there have been a few gems out there, that are well worth considering. I have started compiling a directory below and have grouped into logical categories. If you are a content marketer, you may wish to bookmark this page as I will update it regularly as I discover additional affiliate programmes.

NZ Affiliate Platforms

  • Slice.Digital
    • Slice Digital is a referral marketing and affiliate technology platform in New Zealand and for New Zealand based businesses. Their client base ranges from local businesses to leading global brands and they are committed to software and technical innovation, excellent client service and delivery of results for their advertisers through their affiliate networks. Results are on a pay for performance basis. At the time of writing Slice Digital had about 20 affiliate advertisers using their product, however they are actively growing their reach as an affiliate platform in New Zealand, so I expect the list of advertisers to increase over time. Slice Digital has offices based in Auckland, New Zealand and is led by founder and CEO, Gavin Male.
  • Clix Galore
    • clixGalore Affiliate Marketing is another affiliate marketing platform which appears to support a good number of New Zealand advertisers, however the New Zealand network is part of a larger network across New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, United States, India & Japan. Disappointingly they do not have a New Zealand based office, nor a New Zealand based contact for their organisation. Upon researching the information supplied on their website, it would appear that the NZ advertisers are bundled in with the Australian advertisers, so this makes it a little more laborious for affiliate marketers in NZ to identify suitable products to promote. However, clixGalore does appear to have a reasonable number of affiliate products in New Zealand, so it is worthy of a mention.

Cashback Sites

  • CashCo
    • CashCo is a loyalty and rewards program that enables consumers to get ‘cashback’ on their online shopping transactions at participating stores. This platform was created by a small team of digital industry experts in NZ and further afield and they have already got 100s of participating stores in the program. It’s a great way for every day consumers to get a bit of extra cash when making every day purchases. The concept is slightly different to the traditional affiliate programmes on offer, however CashCo does operate on many of the same principles of an affiliate model.

    Hey Karen there are way more than I thought there would be.
    Brilliant research and useful post.
    Well done
    Lawrence

    • KD Forsman says:

      Thanks Lawrence, I’m sure the list will grow from here as well, it’s just the region specific affiliate programs can be a little harder to identify. Please feel free to bookmark this page for future reference (especially if you’re a kiwi). Best wishes, Karen

    Hallo there,

    I have also been struggling with getting reliable affiliate programs for my website on fashion. I have always thought Amazon to be the best program out there but I tried signing up and they rejected me.

    You have taught me that it is really important tot think out of the box as that is how you actually get to discover new opportunities, which are far better than what you are crying over.

    Thanks a lot for the nugget of wisdom. 🙂

    • KD Forsman says:

      Hi Dave, glad this post gave you some food for thought. Yes, there’s a lot of different ways to monetize your website, you certainly don’t have to be restricted to Adsense and Amazon… but often that’s what new affiliates gravitate towards. The only downfall with those programs is that you need a LOT of traffic to generate any kind of decent income. Thanks for your comment. Cheers, Karen

    I’m not familiar with affiliate programs in New Zealand, but there are tons of affiliate programs available online. You simple have to google the niche that you are in and add + affiliate program. That should pull up a bunch of affiliate programs. You’ll have to sift through and see if they are available in New Zealand, but many of them are.
    I’m a huge fan of Wealthy Affiliate. They have a nice step by step training that helps you to know whether or not you are on the right track when it comes to affiliate marketing.

    • KD Forsman says:

      You are absolutely correct. There’s a ton of affiliate programs out there and yes many are for digital products or global products that are relevant to New Zealand. This post is for products and services for products and services based in New Zealand – and those affiliate advertisers seem to be a little trickier to unearth. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Karen

    Some very interesting Affiliate Programs you have in your New Zealand Directory. I live in Australia and we don’t have a whole lot of affiliate programs over here too. It will be a lot more interesting when Amazon is launched in Australia and this should present a lot more affiliate opportunities.
    I don’t know much about this but will Amazon be launching a website for New Zealand Affiliates in the future?
    Regards, Jeff.

    • KD Forsman says:

      Hi Jeff, I have been an amazon associate in the past as their existing program extends to NZ. The issue though is that a couple of my websites are NZ specific and there is a drive for New Zealanders to buy locally, so Amazon has not been as popular as some of the other affiliate programs I have promoted on those sites. It’s fine if you are targeting a global market for your niche. Cheers, Karen

    Wow – great website! I love the clear layout.

    I was particularly interested in all the book promotion work you do for authors and did I understand correctly – you say this works for bloggers too.

    I also enjoyed reading your reviews – there’s certainly some to avoid here – as well as others that I will be exploring.

    Thanks for all your hard work.

    • KD Forsman says:

      Hi Julia, Yes there’s some good affiliate programs and some not so good. It does take time to find the right products to promote and this comes down to your intended audience as well as your chosen niche. Cheers, Karen

  6. Glenys says:

    HI Karen,
    Thanks for setting up this great service. I can understand how many of these programs are set up based on the American or EU markets and often the smaller countries are neglected totally. I think it’s a great initiative of yours to set this one up.
    I was just wondering if everyone needed a website to market these programs or if you could join the affiliate program and do email marketing only? Thanks

    • KD Forsman says:

      Great question. It’s preferable to create a website for your niche as this is a way of building a presence online and from there working on strategies like list building for email marketing. However, it is possible to do affiliate marketing through social sites only, like Pinterest and similar… I will be covering an article on this in the near future so please bookmark this site for future reference. Best wishes, Karen
