PEERCLICK : What Affiliate Marketing Strategies Should You Employ in 2019?

1. Don’t bark up the wrong tree

Picking the wrong product to promote is walking right into a pitfall. So if you want to succeed don’t waste time trying to campaign a product no one is interested in.

2. Only recommend products you are extremely familiar with

Do you know what a paramount in affiliate marketing is? It is building trust with your audience. Well, you know what is the quickest way to lose trust? Recommending products either you haven’t used before or that aren’t a good fit for your audience. But this isn’t what you want, is it?

3. Never put all your eggs in one basket

Don’t bank on only a single product or an affiliate marketing program to propel you to heights of success. If you only promote one merchant’s products, you are stuck with their commissions, their landing pages, and ultimately, their conversion rates. It is important to work with many different merchants in your niche and promote a wide range of products. Have at least two avenues of making money at hand in case one of them comes crashing down. This affiliate marketing strategy will diversify the amount of commissions you make and create a steady stream of revenue when building an affiliate website.

4. Constantly test and optimize your conversion rates

Okay. Let’s say, you have a promotions page where you’re promoting a product via affiliate links. You currently get 5,000 visits/month at a 2% conversion rate, which means you have 100 referrals. Now you would like to get 200 referrals. Ok? You have two options to achieve this goal: you can either focus on getting 5,000 more visitors, or simply increasing the conversion rate to 4%. So what are you going to do?

5. Befriend the social media

Use social media platforms to their fullest potential to reap the benefits of your marketing. The never-ending popularity of these platforms is a powerful tool to boost your sales.
