Tips To Select The Best Affiliate Program For Your Blog
1. Affinity Poster With Your Theme :
It is very simple. If your blog is about learning English or another language depend to find advertisers and affiliate programs that sell just that. The more affinity, the more effective is the ad and more likely to generate fees and income will be.
2. Designing The Optimal Landing Page :
The basics of the design of a landing page ("landing page") are not a secret. A good agent should know. Make sure you send visits to advertiser fall in an environment that is being tested and improved continuously. If usability is not optimal can not generate the revenue that your web traffic and deserve.
3. Harnessing Promotional Campaigns On Television :
The big advertisers never use a single channel of promotion. The online is one of many ways of how to generate income. It is clear that different actions have an impact on reinforcing each other online and offline. Whenever an advertiser this powerful campaigning television and other offline media channels will notice the Internet. The conversion rates on landing pages always seem to rise when actions are taken that impact branding.
4. Availability Of Deep Links To Products :
Deep linking ("deep links") are a possibility for the member to direct the user directly to the checkout page of a product. There is a very basic concept of usability should avoid clicks and steps whenever possible. The road is shortened when the sale is avoided simply sending visitors to the homepage of the advertiser. Consequently, the effectiveness and results are better.
5. Ratio Of Cancellation :
Ratio of cancellation less than 20% , for someone who is not familiar with the issues surprising that there are cancellations from advertisers. To receive a payment after the initial registration of a conversion is always required approval by the advertiser. The main argument for application by the networks and their customers is the existence of incorrect orders, duplicated and returned. When cancellation ratios are about 70% with some companies in the telecommunications sector can be put in question this argument. It is rather a massive uncontrolled and being able to correctly assign commissions to affiliates or different channels within the online. Cut is applied to the stock returns of membership remains high. This data is sometimes difficult to obtain because the networks do not always get.
6. Advertiser Reputation In Forums :
To get information such as the cancellation ratio of different affiliate programs exchange with other webmasters and bloggers is key. Forums profitable-web.com are an important source for those who want to generate revenue this way. Can obtain detailed information on the quality of support and operation of programs. There are also always put users who give birth many companies because their expectations have not been able to accomplish as expected. It is important to contrast both negative and positive views for multiple users to approach the truth.
7. Timely Payment :
When you work affiliate campaigns can easily spend 90-150 days between the registration of a conversion and payment of the commission. The "fault" is not so much of the networks but the advertisers do not pay hardly ever before. It is true that there are new laws to improve this situation but from my experience with Coguan has not improved much. Much of the information is done through media agencies representing advertisers. In general the subject payments and collections is a complicated issue in Spain. For us as a start-up looking 12 months ago we did much damage. As in other countries people face he drops the payment has been delayed because a couple of days (in terms of 30 days), in Spain you have to forgive and be very careful asking for your money by having the client already has 30 -60 late.
8. Sales Tracking :
Most affiliate programs work with a sales tracking "post click" 30 days. This means you can take 1 month between the click and purchase of the product by the user to receive a commission. In the longer the term, the better for the affiliate. Also there are few programs "post view". It is a privilege of very few affiliate networks collaborating for the possibilities of cheating the system offers. In the second case it is sufficient that a user has seen the banner without making a click. Usually within 48 hours. The sales tracking is explained in detail in a post by Brice Février .
Making money through affiliate programs and networks is not an easy task. This is an exercise to get some key data, availability of appropriate tools and especially the experience of the affiliate.
