LINKS: What are your top 3 pieces
of advice for success?
Every web page is different but here are our current top
three suggestion that seem to work for most pages.
1. Place links, banners on your home page or high traffic
pages when possible. You can not expect to make any sales
by placing affiliate links on general link pages, and other
low traffic pages.
2. Incorporate the products into your page content. Use
an image to make a point or a joke. Use images to accent
articles or blog entries. Write a product rewiew. Just remember
to attach your linking code to all images or plugs.
3. For those pages that do not have existing shopping carts.
Build an entire page around each of our categories (like
a store page) showing all products and prices. Link all
these with your affilate linking code. This not only helps
you convert more sales, but building more pages and content
will only help your site in general as search enginge LOVE
