One popular online trend in recent years is giving individuals an opportunity to help raise funds for startup projects they believe in. Otherwise known as crowdfunding, these campaigns now allow affiliates from various niches to earn by referring others to campaigns and causes that truly matter.
This not only gives an incentive for your visitors to pledge their support, but helps you earn some nice commissions in the process. More importantly is that the simple introduction of various projects can add a nice touch to your content and make things more interesting.
In this list, I’ve gone through and found some of the best and most desirable crowdfunding affiliate programs for 2017. If you’re in a niche where startup projects are prevalent, then introducing and referring some of your visitors to these startup campaigns can be a great way of adding another method of earning with your blog and content.
As a crowdfunding referrer, I highly recommend applying to each of the following programs individually since each contain their own unique campaigns that could be of interest to you and your audience.
Please keep in mind that this list is not as exhaustive as other niche affiliate programs given the limited nature of the industry. But you should find that the following affiliate programs are all you need to place you on a path to crowdfunding success!
