It’s a good idea to use multiple strategies when you are building your affiliate income. Don’t place your affiliate links all in the same place. By mixing it up a bit and getting creative, you are going to have a better chance of boosting your affiliate income. Let’s look at two important places to put your affiliate links that will ensure you the most success:
An Extension Page
An extension page resembles a resource page; however, you will do a little bit more with that so that it feels connected and related to your brand.
For example, on my website I sell books on manifesting, and to go with that I have created a page with meditations that my clients can use, and I also provide a number of practices that visitors can try. It is here that I create a call to action where visitors can click on a link that will take them to the affiliate’s page.
It’s important to make this process very smooth and create cohesiveness between visiting one site, and buying on another in order for the visitor to complete the purchase.
Consider what you can add to your extension page that will provide your visitor with that extra value. What you want is your visitor to think of this page is somewhere they want to visit to find information they need. When they do this you now have an opportunity to sell them something. When your affiliate links are correctly placed and you provide adequate information that entices them and interest them they are much more likely to click that link and you then will earn a commission.
A Resource Page
Your resource page can be your top earning affiliate page when done correctly. A resource page is simply a page that lists resources that you recommend, and each resource will have a brief description attached to it. In that list is going to be your link to your affiliate marketing program. At is here that there is a high likelihood that your visitor will click that link, and buy the product your affiliate has to offer. This is a win-win for everyone. You make a commission, your visitor gets a product they want, and your affiliate sells their product. A resource page is easy to create and one of the most valuable tools you’ll ever place on your blog or website.
Using these two simple strategies will help to increase your income stream from affiliate marketing.
