Do you want to increase your affiliate earnings? If yes, one good way you can do that is through deep linking. It all starts with your affiliate username or tracking username or number and you can use deep linking to send your visitors to different pages on the website of the website/product/service/brand you are affiliated to.
Sometimes the homepage of the website for a product/service/brand that you are affiliating for isn’t the best place to send your visitors. Maybe you want to direct them to the help articles page or the FAQs page or just another page which will be useful to your visitors. By deep linking to specific pages, you can build higher conversion rates while helping your visitors find exactly what they need!
How Do you Use Deep Linking?
With deep linking, all you have to do is to point your visitors to different pages on the website of the product/service/brand. This is achieved by adding a little bit to your usual affiliate tracking link. Follow these simple steps to start deep linking your traffic and increase your affiliate earnings.
1. Start with your normal affiliate tracking link e.g. http://themeforest.net/?ref=adesojiadegbulu
2. Identify the page on the affiliate website that best suites your traffic (e.g., Themes, Plugins, marketing, knowledgebase, etc) and then find the page’s name in the URL (the part that comes after .com) in the URL bar of your browser.
3. Add ?ref=adesojiadegbulu after the page URL. You will need to add that to the end of page you want to send visitors to. It should then look like something like this: http://themeforest.net/item/x-the-theme/5871901?ref=adesojiadegbulu
The link is now ready to add to your blog for promotion! But you need to test it first before sending people to the link. Be sure to test the link to make sure it’s tracking correctly by logging into your affiliate account and checking the stats. Check your affiliate account to see how many clicks have been recorded and by clicking on your newly created deep link. If you see the number of clicks go up as you click on the link yourself. This means it’s working!
I hope you will use this tip to help you increase conversions and then increase your affiliate earnings.
