best chocolate affiliate programs headerIf you have a blog or website about chocolate, you might want to earn by using affiliate marketing.

To get the best chances of earning, you need to find the right programs to join for this.

In this article, you will find a list of 11 top chocolate affiliate programs – they are, of course, all free to join.

You will also get some niche insights and ideas about potential content that can bring in traffic so you can earn after joining the affiliate programs.

So let’s get started!

Is chocolate a good niche?

Just by using pure logic it is clear to see that there is a lot of interest in chocolate. But when it comes to running an online business, it is also a good idea to combine data with our gut feeling to get the best results.

And you also need to know how big the interest is online since you will be making money through promoting chocolate online.

So let’s look at a few numbers to see how good a niche chocolate is.

If we just start by looking at the overall worldwide consumption of chocolate, according to Statista, the consumption has increased every year from 2012 until 2019.

So this shows it definitely has a big market.

But let’s also look at how big the interest is for searching online for chocolate as that gives you a better indication of your potential as an affiliate.

For this, I have used Google trends as this can show a lot about how big the interest is online. I started with just a search for the general term “Chocolate” and the worldwide interest.

The online interest for chocolate according to Google Trends.

Here you can see there is a pretty decent interest year-round with a few peeks during the year over the past 12 months. It is important to notice that this is the general worldwide interest.

But since you will be promoting chocolate online you can do it worldwide. However, if you want more knowledge about the interest in specific countries or regions, you can also use Google Trends for this.

The interest by country.

If you look at the top 5 countries, you can see that some countries have a very high interest. This is data that could be used to maybe promote towards countries that have not been your target market so far.

To get some more info I also tried to look for the term “organic chocolate” to see how big the interest of this is worldwide.

Organic chocolate is also a popular topic online.

It actually shows that this in periods has even more interest which is something very interesting for you as an affiliate.

Something else that is very good to know about this is when you look at the top countries for this search term.

The countries that search the most for organic chocolate online.

The interest for organic chocolate is huge in the big English-speaking countries. But after that, you can see that there is not much interest in many other countries according to the stats of Google.

That will, of course, be affected by the language, but if your website is in English, this is very useful knowledge to have and take into your planning.

So overall, you can see there is a big interest and potential for the chocolate niche online.

But let’s also look at bit at the competition and some potential content ideas before we get to the list of the best affiliate programs to join.

Niche competition insights

Popular niches will, of course, also have competition.

But competition is not necessarily a bad thing. If you focus on creating great content and providing value to your visitors as an affiliate, you have a chance in most niches if you choose the right angle.

No matter whether you focus on paid traffic or on getting traffic from the search engines, you need to have helpful and valuable content.

Personally, I work a lot with getting organic traffic as the traffic you get here is some of the best. And if you do the right research and work hard, you can definitely rank in the chocolate niche as well.

So let’s just go over a few ideas about what kind of content you could potentially go for and how the competition is for this.

For this, I have used the keyword research tool Jaaxy. First, I just did a search for the general term chocolate even though I knew that would be too competitive.

chocolate jaaxy search

Some ideas for potential content about chocolate.

The avg shows the average monthly searches, the QSR is the competition and should preferably be below 100, and the KQI is a quality index and should preferably be great.

When it comes to the general term “chocolate” it is obviously not a good term to go for.

But the great thing about having a good keyword tool is that it will also give you a lot of related suggestions.

The above image just shows some of the suggestions and already here you can see some potential good keywords and it is then possible to search specifically for this and find even more ideas and better keywords.

A term like “how to stop eating chocolate” could actually be an interesting KW and it has some good stats. Of course, as a chocolate affiliate, you do not really want people to stop eating chocolate:-)

But as a part of the branding and providing high-quality content for your users, this could be a good and relevant topic.

And on the list of the affiliate programs below, you will also find several healthy chocolates you could then recommend so people could still keep eating it but go for healthy options.

Another idea from the research above could be “chocolate cupcake frosting” – you could also do some more research about this and make some really great content that would also recommend some of the products you are promoting.

So these are just a few ideas I got from just spending a few minutes doing research.

I just did one more quick search for “organic chocolate online” to see what came up.

Some ideas if you want to promote organic chocolate.

Here are also some good ideas to look further into.

And again, these are just a few of the suggestions that came up.

With a keyword tool like Jaaxy or similar, you will quickly get a lot of good ideas for valuable content you can create and at the same time have a chance to rank for in the search engines.

So overall the chocolate niche definitely has a lot of potentials.
