Let's highlight three keys to success as an affiliate marketer:

1 – quality traffic
2 – offer with good demand
3 – advertising strategy

1st step: Traffic

Traffic is people who encounter your advertising while surfing the Internet, social networks, and using mobile applications. Audience interest affects your profits directly, so the issue of traffic should not be ignored, so let’s dive into this:

How to get conversions

2nd step: offer and ad strategies

Once you identified your traffic sources let us move on to the second step: our task is to choose a popular product or service that will be interesting to the audience and bring us huge traffic volume. Let's divide the offers into mainstream and adult verticals.

Mainstream has a lot of specifics in advertising, so it is most suitable for experienced affiliates.

If you are just starting your journey into affiliate marketing, then adult niches are the most suitable for you. Why? Here are the reasons:

– Adult verticals are suitable for a wide audience of different ages and genders, so you can learn to target a wide audience and narrow target groups.
– Demand for +18 niches does not depend much on demographics and culture, so you can advertise these products in different GEOs, gaining experience in advertising to different users.
– Seasonality does not affect the adult niches, so you can choose 1-2 verticals and continue to advertise consistently, regardless of external conditions.

Now let's talk about each adult vertical separately.


Dating is an affiliate program that is aimed at those users who use dating sites. Here are the main types of dating offers:

1. Standard. These are dating platforms for finding a soulmate or friends. This type belongs to mainstream offers, but it is suitable for novice advertisers.
2. Casual dating is a search for one-night stands.
3. +18 online games with the opportunity to chat.
4. Queer dating.

Adult and mainstream are equally popular in the market, so you can experiment with ad strategies. Moreover, many offers also include about 4-5 landing pages, depending on the profile of the target user, so even one offer allows you to try out different strategies.

You can find offers with different payment models: SOI, DOI, and CPI for dating applications and CPA for web platforms (usually payment occurs if a user purchases a premium subscription).
Dating is an excellent niche for advertising in almost all GEOs, but Tier 1 and 2 are more popular (Tier 3 takes up about 10% of the market). You can read the case studies of our clients to verify the profitability of these GEOs:

This is a relatively new adult niche that is showing successful growth. The principle of webcam platforms is that models communicate with users online and receive money for it. Therefore, we can distinguish two portraits of the target audience:

Webcam models. These are young girls and boys who are looking for a main or additional source of income. If you decide to advertise offers to this audience, then study the benefits of the offer since these users want to know all the advantages. For example, the frequency of payments, the ability to limit certain GEOs, and anonymity.

Clients. 90% of users are men aged 16-40 years. If you want to advertise to this audience, then do not forget that you can reach the LGBT community as well. We can highlight a certain behavioral feature of clients - as a rule, users mostly click on webcam offers when they come home after work. Therefore, you can limit your ads to show only on weekday evenings.

Strategies for working with webcam offers are quite similar to the dating vertical. The main GEOs are Tier 1 and 2 since the target audience is solvent users.

Gambling and betting

These niches are very profitable, and betting becomes a real goldmine during championship periods.

CPA is a popular payment model for these verticals. As a rule, it is a new user signing up and recharging the balance.

RevShare is also a good model that shows good profits in these niches. As a rule, gambling offers provide 20-60% of the amount that a user loses. The advantage of this model is that advertisers can receive passive income even after the campaign ends, as some users continue to top up their balance.

You can also find CPA + RevShare offers.

There is another payment model that is less popular than the previous ones - Sub-Affiliate. In this case, the advertiser reaches other affiliates and receives about 5% of their earnings.

This past event became an excellent example as a guide to working with betting offers.

Speaking about gambling, you can achieve new users by offering simple gaming strategies or reach gambling enthusiasts by telling about the advantages of a particular platform.


This is another vertical that can be called evergreen in affiliate marketing. The main advantage of antiviruses is the absence of seasonality and the targeting of desktop and mobile traffic.

Payouts may vary - about $1-100. The best GEOs are Mexico, Spain, Italy, Colombia, and China.

Adult gaming

Online gaming is a rapidly growing billion-dollar industry. SPI and CPL are popular payment models. Choose banners, interstitial, or video ads to drive traffic - you can demonstrate the game process or ready-made promotional videos. Tier 1 and 2 are the most popular, for example, adult gaming is one of the most popular verticals in Japan.

When talking about the target audience, you should rely on the specific game you are going to advertise. You can read this article to learn more about advertising in the gaming vertical.


Nutra is one of the most ancient verticals of adult niches. Everyone has faced an advertisement for enlargers or stimulating gels at least once. The target GEOs are Tier 3 and 2. The fact is that there is too much competition in Tier 1 and it can be quite difficult to engage users since they have probably already seen analogs before. Tier 3 may be the best choice for nutra offers. For example, India: this country has developed sexual culture, so men will certainly be interested in new products to improve the quality of their intimate life.
