WordPress Theme Affiliate Program

A while back in time, we started a WordPress theme affiliate program here at Rough Pixels and ran it as a sort-of-beta program. The idea was to explore how you can benefit by supporting and promoting themes from Rough Pixels. Generally, with most affiliate programs, you can definitely make good money, either on the side or as a standalone business.

For a website like Rough Pixels, it increases the relationships between customers and brands. Getting the word out about products and services that you love also helps others make informed decisions. In the world of WordPress, there are a lot of WP-specific affiliate programs that can keep the money coming in for you. They will also make your customers and clients very happy with more choices!
