1. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Make sure you track metrics that matter and help you determine the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns. These metrics can include click-through rate (CTR), conversion rate, revenue by traffic source, and average time spent on the page.
2. Link To Conversion-Optimized Landing Pages
Drive traffic to the right landing pages that are relevant to your audience and provide multiple opportunities for them to convert. For instance, if your blog discusses vacation packages, link to the company’s page where users can buy those same packages.
3. Create Or Update Your ‘tools’ Webpage
Create a web page listing all the go-to tools and services that can help your audience. Keep it up-to-date and link it to conversion-optimized pages or other useful content like personal reviews and comparison articles.
4. Write Or Update Product Reviews
Product reviews can help generate traffic, increase your authority in the industry, and generate more affiliate sales. Make sure your reviews are honest, and accurate, and cover everything from the problem that the product solved to your favorite features.
5. Highlight External Reviews (For Consultants)
If you are a consultant or a freelance developer, backing up your recommendations with external reviews from happy customers is a great way to reinforce your proposal. And, this helps to increase your chances of earning an affiliate sale.
Add new merchants to your old content to increase the chances of generating affiliate sales. You can also use this opportunity to refresh the article’s content, fix broken affiliate links, and update old figures to entice Google to crawl your site more frequently.
6. Add CTA (Call To Action)
Add call-to-actions (CTAs) to your long-form articles. CTAs encourage users to interact on your site and send them to a sales-focused landing page.
Improve your search engine optimization (SEO) to put your content at the top of relevant search results. This will increase your organic traffic and improve your user experience.
7. Drive The Traffic From Localized Sites
Drive traffic to localized sites to give users the chance to browse and shop in their native language, increasing the chances of earning an affiliate sale.
Take full advantage of the merchant’s marketing resources, like website banners, logos, and example product copy, to increase the opportunity to convert.
Promote brand discounts to encourage sales. Deals and discounts are an effective way to do this, but some brands, like Kinsta, may have a different approach to discounts.
8. Start A Mailing List
Email marketing can be a great way to reach new audiences, promote your content and get more affiliate sales. Make sure you’re not just sending out affiliate links, though, and provide value instead. Encourage your audience to click on various articles and then direct them to convert with your affiliate links.
9. Create A Podcast
Another tip is to start a podcast. You can use video and/or audio podcasts to generate income through affiliate sales. Adding links and relevant content to your show notes and descriptions can help encourage sales, but don’t forget to include links in your show notes and descriptions and verbally describe to listeners how to find your content.
10. Cloak The Affiliate Links
Make sure to cloak your affiliate links too. They can be lengthy, complicated, and sometimes even scary-looking, so creating clean affiliate URLs with link cloaking can increase the likelihood that a user will click on your affiliate link.
11. Leverage Social Media Accounts
Leveraging your social media accounts and their tools is also important. Social media is a great platform for affiliates to build audiences, promote content and get more action from your affiliate links. You can also use Facebook groups to build and develop relationships and increase your presence on Quora.
12. Post Content To Social Media Sites
Lastly, reposting your content on Medium and LinkedIn can help you reach new audiences through long-form articles. Give these tips a try and see if you can increase your affiliate sales!
