For anyone who has a blog with a decent amount of traffic, affiliate marketing is an easy way to generate some extra cash. All you need to do is drop a link on your site to a product or service you endorse, and you can get rewarded if people click on it and eventually make a purchase. Simple.
But if you’ve been doing the affiliate trade for a while, it always helps to go back and make sure your affiliate content is up to date. In this article, we’ll go over a few things you should watch out for.
It might seem like a simple gotcha, but you’d be surprised how pricing information can change quickly. If you have any posts about pricing data for the products you’re endorsing, you may need to do some basic fact-checking and make sure the content is still valid.
You don’t want to be responsible for any false information. Furthermore, correct pricing can increase click-throughs and conversions, which means more money in your pocket.
Update Images and Banners
Often, your affiliate package will have included optional images and banners you could sprinkle into your other site media. Branding changes will happen from time to time, so it’s a good idea to check in and make sure that your images and banners are up-to-date.
Create a Newsletter and Get Social
Remember, strategy will help you get the most out of your affiliate marketing. We always recommend setting up a newsletter for your followers, so they can regularly interact with you. This is a great way to keep people coming back to your site, increasing the likelihood that they will click your affiliate links.
And don’t forget to get social. Share your endorsements on social media. Most social media users are aware that their peers and favorite channels have products to promote, so they expect a little advertisement. But don’t go overboard! Respect your followers’ time and attention.
Check For Any Broken Links Valid
Most importantly, is your affiliate link valid? Your affiliate link is specially coded with your information. But, unfortunately, links do change. So make sure you’re not losing any of that sweet affiliate nectar from a busted link. Check your link often.
As an affiliate marketer, it’s your job to keep your content up-to-date. You need to constantly monitor your top-performing posts and regularly update them with the latest information.
Make sure to keep an eye on broken links, images, product listings, pricing, features, etc to give “fresh information” to your target audience.Anil Agarwal, hostingmonks.com
