As an affiliate marketer, we are always after the best strategies to drive sales. There are numerous guides available online that promise to have the best working strategy, but which one actually works?

To help you with your search, here are some certified strategies that can help you change and improve your affiliate marketing business.

#1 Use Call to Action

Some affiliate marketers often create their blog articles without putting up affiliate links for users to check. When people visit a site, they will scan the entire article and click on the highlighted links. This way, people will know instantly what offers your site is promoting and they can check them out easily.

If you want your readers to act on your affiliate article, you have to place an action button that they can spot easily. WordPress has a special feature that allows users to add call-to-action buttons which you can modify to match your overall theme. Also, there are available plug-ins that you can use to add markdown coupons and discounts on your articles.

#2 Use Pop-Ups that Appear in the End

The next great way to rake in some sales from affiliate marketing is through the use of exit intent pop-ups. Making your clients engage more on your site is the best way to boost income. Pop-ups are usually seen when the users intend to leave the site by clicking the close tab or window option. This will make them think again if they are going to leave your site for good, or stay and continue browsing your content.

You need to design a banner that will display the message to catch your reader’s attention. In some blog platforms, it is necessary to use a plug-in to have exit pop-ups appear on your blog. These plug-ins are usually available under subscription.

#3 Check New Offers

For some new bloggers getting into affiliate marketing, they tend to benchmark other bloggers when it comes to what they offer. While this is a good practice, it is always best to check new offers to promote and target them to potential readers. You can do this by using your affiliate network dashboard and thoroughly check their “Rankings” or their “New Offerings” tab.

Once you check these tabs, you may be able to find the one that will help you with your marketing goals.

#4 Do Keyword Research

Affiliate marketing has to work with algorithms to get new people to visit your site and see the available offers.

With this in mind, always do a regular keyword search to know which usual words are being used by readers to find the specific products they need.

#5 Seek Commission Increase

Why not check out affiliate managers and build relationships with them?

Usually, affiliate marketing sites have a public page where companies can reach out to their associates and discuss their commission terms and payments.

Establishing a strong relationship with companies by delivering them good results from collaborations can be a possible reason to negotiate for a commission increase. Also, offering new ideas to affiliate managers to create new affiliate programs that are not yet available in the market can be a good impression that you are dedicated to working with them. The companies may agree to provide you with a commission increase if the idea becomes a well-performing affiliate program and engages new and current clients. This will not only benefit the company but also your career in the long run.

Conclusion

As an affiliate marketer, you can utilise a lot of ways to make your sales increase for your site and the strategies we listed above are only a few of the many ways you can use. Do not be afraid to test which approach works best for you. When you find the right strategy for your market, go for it and observe your performance and sales. If you succeed, it will surely boost your reputation!

      1. Bonjour ou Bonsoir Kally,
        Ce matin à l’aube, j’ai pris avec moi pour mon Blog, la blogueuse bien connue “Marie-Anne K”.
        Son Blog sur lequel elle avait consacré des jours, des semaines, des mois, des années est parti en fumée dans le néant.
        Elle a été triste, je l’ai été pour elle, car ce qu’elle faisait était super !
        Alors je lui ai demandé de m’assister. Beauté, féminité, Sens pratique, Cuisine, Mode Etc.
        Je lui ai demandé de se lâcher, de faire ce quelle voulait.
        Elle a démarré ce matin à l’aube.
        Si tu peux lui dire quelques mots pour lui remonter le moral.
        Merci pour elle.
        Bises

    1. Hi Wissem! Welcome to MiddleMe. With regards to keyword search, you need to understand your niche to get the suitable keywords. Try reading Neil Patels website, you can Google his name. He is guru in this.
