You Could Be Losing Money As An Affiliate Marketer
Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online. You
could either take the approach of setting up your own
website with your own domain and hosting. Or you could set
up a free blog. These are only two examples. There are many
other ways to promote affiliate products, but we won't get
into that. whichever way you choose you can sell products as
an affiliate. If you're not familiar with affiliate
marketing it's when a company wants to expand their sales by
letting other people pre-sell their product. If there's a
sale, then they give the affiliate a commission.
The great thing about being an affiliate marketer is that
you don't have to have any products on hand, or deal with
customer service. People are making a lot of money with
affiliate marketing online. Especially with information
products (also known as ebooks). There are great affiliate
managers out there. All you have to do is sign up, and
they'll give you a personalized link to keep track of your
visitors and sales. Then all you do is whenever you post on
your blog, or write about relevant topics you promote the
product with the affiliate link.
Now with affiliate marketing becoming popular, people are
beginning to realize that other people monetize off those
links. These people then type in the link without using the
affiliate link. I have no idea why anyone has a problem with
others monetizing off your clicks to a product that they're
going to buy anyways. It's not like it's going to cost them
anymore money. You provided them with the information, and
resources of the product, why not give you some credit.
There's a way around this. It's a method of hiding your
affiliate link. You can only use this method if you are
using your own hosting. Here's how you do it. In your file
manager, create a new html page. Name it relevant to your
product that you're promoting. Now in the file use the
coding from the following website.
Once you have put the coding in the file, you'll want to
save it like it is, as an html file. All that this code does
is when someone types in your personalized address the
coding in the html file tells people "Go to this page. We'll
redirect you there." That's exactly what it does too. It
redirects them to your affiliate link. Whenever someone
clicks on the link they won't know it's an affiliate link,
but when they reach the product page it will most likely
change the affiliate link to the original domain. Now of
course they could go in their internet files, and delete
their cookie files (that's how affiliate managers keep track
of your visitors), but there's no way of stopping these
people. It's not worth the time worrying about people who
are going to take out your affiliate link or cookie from
their computer, because these people planned to give you
nothing in the first place, and that's all you'll get from
them. It's best to be optimistic on the people who are going
to use your affiliate link, and bring you a commission.
