April and May will be big months for focusing on the Health vertical. Campaigns of diet, wellness and nutra will be high in demand because of various factors. For starters, the 7th of April is United Nations World Health Day. Second, Ramadan will be falling somewhere in the mid of May and lastly as May ends and the traveling seasons starts people start focusing more on health related issues due to traveling.


April 17th is Tax Day in United States which automatically leads to a high demand of services related to tax, credit and refinance. Campaigns for refinance calculators, tax calculators and credit related services and products are high in demand. If Finance is your niche then tax and credit are some major affiliate marketing verticals you wouldn’t want to miss out on.


Lots of events are happening during April and May including Easter, Mothers day, Golden week (Japan), Memorial day (US), Ramadan and Shavuot. It will also be Graduation season and end of the school year for many. Not to mention that summer break will be starting at the end of May. All this means gifts, grocery and lots of shopping related to these events. Affiliate marketers who work on the e-commerce vertical would want to focus on these national and international events more during these 2 to 3 months by promoting the best offers in relation to these from their advertisers.


Again, lots of seasonal and religious events means meeting family and friends. Which means that it’s time for home renovations, repairs and protection. Many people will be traveling out of their city or country while others will be having friends and family over. Those who work on the home improvement niche would want to focus on campaigns for home repair, home renovations, window repairs and home security.


Summer break starts at the end of May but people start planning ahead for travel during April only. No other time of the year does this affiliate marketing vertical takes high priority than it does before and during summer as well as winter break time.
