If you are an affiliate marketer, there is a high likelihood you have a blog. And If you have a WordPress blog, then you are definitely implementing plugins to add function to your blog. Below are my list of the 7 best affiliate marketing WordPress plugins in 2021 (Including the ones I use personally).
1. Yoast SEO
Yoast is an all-in-one SEO Plugin for WordPress that focuses on on-page search engine optimization. They have 2 versions, free and paid. Many of the most useful functions you can get from the free version, but the paid has some extra bells and whistles that can prove extremely useful. This is by far one of the best affiliate marketing plugins for WordPress. In fact, this blog uses the premium version of this plugin.
OptinMonster is an ad/pop-up/opt-in plugin that is one of the most powerful software tools for lead generation. This plugin is absolutely essential for affiliate marketers, especially those who have a lead capture page or landing page to get email list subscribers. This tool is extremely powerful and also is used on this blog.
3. Monster Insights
MonsterInsights plugin works in conjunction with OptinMonster to provide dashboard analytics for your WordPress Blog. It harnesses data from Google Analytics to give you insight about your traffics behavior. Combining this with OptinMonster is a dynamic duo and by far one of the best affiliate marketing WordPress plugins. Again, this is one that I personally use.
4. Ultimate Social Media Icons
Ultimate Social Media Icons is a tool that allows you to put your favorite social media icons on your blog, wherever you want them. The best part of this tool is that you can set your icons to perform numerous functions. For example, you can have your YouTube icon to post, subscribe and like your YouTube channels/videos. You can see this plugin implemented on my blog as well. While you are at it, please share what you’ve read 🙂
Blog2Social is a social media plugin that saves you immense amount of time syndicating your content on various social media platforms. This WordPress plugin allows you to automatically post your blog to a plethora of social media sites. Theses sites include Facebook, Instagram, LinkdIn, Tumbler, Twitter and many more. With a single click of a button you can spread your blog content through all your social media accounts. This plugin saves you tons of time and is well worth it. It also has a premium function. I use this, but I use the free version verses the paid version. This is one of the best WordPress plugins for affiliate marketing.
6. AWeber for WordPress
AWeber for WordPress is a plugin that connects with AWeber to incorporate sign-up forms for lead capture. This email marketing plugin works great for collecting email addresses. The plugin isn’t rated very high, however, I use it and I find it extremely useful when implementing it in my blog. It has a widget portion that doesn’t work very well. But with a simple click, you can use whichever capture form you use and it sticks it right into your blog content. Again, this isn’t highly rated, but I do use it and haven’t had any issues with how I use it.

7. SEM Rush
SEM Rush is a full-powered search engine marketing plugin that is a powerhouse when it comes to your search engine marketing. This plugin is pretty expensive plugin-wise, but its value definitely outweighs the price. If you want to see what your competitors are doing or knowing what keywords to focus on, this is YOUR plugin.
