How I make money online with the Vitamix affiliate program
I remember when I first signed up for the Vitamix affiliate program. I was stuck in the Denver airport. I was stuck in my corporate job. And I was stuck in life. Could starting a blog about my lifestyle be the ticket out? Could I make money as a Vitamix affiliate?
Yes and yes.
But it was not easy. Sure, anyone can get a handful of sales. Enough sales to get you a free Vitamix. Some, however, can use the Vitamix affiliate program make a living. I am one of them (as I also explain in my NOYOKE Vitamix Guide).
Getting started as a Vitamix affiliate
Creating a blog
I secured a domain name in 2011. Then, I had no plan to become a Vitamix affiliate. So, I focused on the basics:
- Content creation.
- Building a following.
Turned out, all that was pretty easy.
The hardest part about this phase wasn’t tactics. It was persistence. It was resilience. It was overcoming fear.
Getting a Vitamix
All Vitamix affiliates must own a Vitamix. The affiliate application requires proof of ownership. This helps protect you from unwanted competition.
It doesn’t matter where you buy it. All that matters is that it’s a genuine Vitamix.
Least expensive route is to get a Certified Reconditioned model.
My experience with the Vitamix affiliate program
It took a week to get my application approved. And, at first, it was only approved conditionally. Vitamix protects its brand well, so I needed to be sure I didn’t mention the word “coupon” near my Vitamix Promotion Code.
Vita-mix corp’s support for their affiliates is, quite honestly, just okay. There are enough marketing materials to get started. And the commission tracking is completely in-house. So if you’re comparing affiliate programs, Blendtec’s is better on both fronts. But that could change at any time.
The earnings potential, however, is incredible. I earn 15% for every sale I refer. So, as the Vitamix brand continues to strengthen domestically and abroad, the sky really is the limit.
Not everyone is a good fit for the Vitamix affiliate program. Here are some good candidates:
- Homemakers: Some extra cash for the family.
- Traveling consultants: Diversify your income.
- Small business owners: Monetize your website.
- Personal trainers: Help your clients bridge the food & fitness gap.
Genuine passion for helping people is the most important quality for success in the Vitamix affiliate program.
For example, I put this disclaimer on any page where I mention Vitamix:
SUPPORT = 💚

Why you shouldn’t apply
If you cannot afford a Vitamix today, don’t apply. If you think this is a get-rich-quick scheme, don’t apply. And if you think you can cheat the system and spam your way to affiliate earnings, don’t apply.
