HomeNetworksThe Zara Affiliate Program | Does It Exist?

In this post, I’ll take a look at the Zara affiliate program. I’ll examine some Zara keyword research and different traffic generation ideas to monetize with this and other fashion affiliate programs.

About Zara

According to Wikipedia, “Zara is a Spanish fast fashion (clothing and accessories) retailer based in Arteixo (A Coruña) in Galicia. The company was founded in 1975 by Amancio Ortega and Rosalía Mera. It is the main brand of the Inditex group, the world’s largest apparel retailer.

Does It Have An Affiliate Program?

Unfortunately, at the present time it doesn’t look like Zara has an affiliate program. According to this Q&A Forum post which was recently updated in April 2019, no one can find it.

Forum posters suggested these alternative affiliate programs:

  • Old Navy
  • Gap
  • ASOS
  • Forever 21

You can also check out Macy’s- I did a review of their affiliate program.

The advantage there is that it houses dozens and dozens of different fashion brands. So while a fashion brand like Nike may not have a robust affiliate program, particularly for American traffic, you can promote Nike products from within Macy’s affiliate program.

Knoji also offers an even bigger list of fashion affiliate programs you can join:

Zara Keyword Research

Even though they don’t have an affiliate program, it’s always fun to take a look at what a large site like this ranks for.

Below, I extracted 1,000 of their top-performing organic keywords just to see the sort of terms they rank for and get traffic from.

You can see there’s a variety of different, high-value terms that they’re getting millions of unique site visits from a month:

  1. accessories
  2. mens suits
  3. faux fur coat
  4. culottes
  5. girl
  6. leather jackets
  7. ankle boots
  8. bomber jacket men
  9. bomber jacket
  10. trench coat
  11. high waisted jeans
  12. mens dress shoes
  13. maternity clothes
  14. mens fashion
  15. jumpsuits
  16. mens bomber jacket
  17. zaea
  18. bag
  19. girls dresses
  20. maxi dresses
  21. midi dress
  22. midi skirt
  23. bags
  24. zarausa
  25. mens trench coat
  26. mens vest
  27. parka
  28. palazzo pants
  29. women’s suits
  30. women’s suits
  31. mens shirts
  32. platform sneakers
  33. blouse
  34. mens leather jackets
  35. belt bag
  36. plaid pants

SEO Content Ideas

If you run a fashion blog, it’s not a bad idea to use SEO software like this to conduct keyword research for content ideas.

For example, if you’re really into SEO, you can see that “leather jackets” have a keyword difficulty score of 0.

It also has a pretty high search volume of 34,000 searches a month. It definitely doesn’t mean that any random page optimized for “leather jackets” is going to rank, but it’s definitely a keyword I would look at if I was trying to drive traffic to a fashion blog.

Although Zara itself doesn’t have an affiliate program, there are obviously many different affiliate programs in the fashion niche that have pricey leather jackets you could promote.

If I were going after this keyword, I would figure out a massive listicle with a BuzzFeed-like title targeting the term “leather jackets”.

There might be 25 different leather jackets, each would get a 100-word blurb, with the entire post clocking in at close to or over three thousand words.

They don’t all need to be affiliate links- just showcase some gorgeous leather jackets from Instagram like this one:

Long Tail Volume

While the primary key where you’re going after is leather jackets, you’ll find that writing naturally about leather jackets over and over again you’re going to capture hundreds and even thousands of longtail variations – for example, cheap leather jackets, black leather jackets, suede leather jackets, etc.

It might be that you never rank for the term leather jackets itself because it is an e-commerce search term and you might be running a content website, but you’ll find that there is a ton of traffic to be had capturing the near-infinite amount of long-tail, keyword variations around this and other terms.

You could also take to a platform like Pinterest and create Pins promoting your leather jacket content.

Or even directly linking to the leather jacket affiliate program that you are a part of. Leveraging third-party social media platforms like Pinterest is a smart strategy to feed more traffic onto your site – this is especially shrewd when keywords are very competitive.

Affiliate Links

One thing that can be somewhat troublesome- if a leather jacket goes out of stock or is discontinued, depending on how the particular company website handles this, the affiliate link may be broken or it might be redirected to a product category page. It’s important to keep tabs on your different affiliate links especially in something that is so seasonal like fashion.

One of my primary websites focuses on evergreen products – products that don’t come and go seasonally like fashion does.

So it’s a lot easier to manage.

With something like fashion, every season fashion is changing and the products are cycling in and out so you have to be on top of that if you are in the fashion affiliate space.

The way I manage things like this, I use the ThirstyAffiliates WordPress plugin to track and manage all of my affiliate links.

Summing Up

While Zara doesn’t have an affiliate program at the moment, there are tons of different fashion brands that do. Including fashion affiliate programs like Macy’s or H&M or Nordstrom that house a number of big name brands that you can tap into.
