Written by Declan Dunn

Featured Product:

An excellent method to increase affiliate leads is to offer a Web Page that acts as a featured product atrepparttar affiliate’s Web Site. This can be a stand alone Web Page or one that merges in with Web Page content atrepparttar 102601 affiliate’s site. The key is to focus onrepparttar 102602 product being sold, a one product offer that stands out fromrepparttar 102603 rest of repparttar 102604 page. This can be integrated into a site almost as a sponsorship, withoutrepparttar 102605 cost. For example, if a high traffic area of an affiliate’s Web Site is available, encourage them to feature your product in that section alone. It is more effective forrepparttar 102606 affiliate to test response rates, and forrepparttar 102607 affiliate network it will result in more qualified leads.

This approach basically eliminatesrepparttar 102608 grouping of affiliate programs and encourages people to click on this important product, because it appears to be featured. The featured product enables you to gain exposure atrepparttar 102609 affiliate’s site in a way that is perceived favorably by visitors.


The best affiliate responses can come from a storefront integrated into another Web Site. This can be as simple as putting a logo graphic on top ofrepparttar 102610 page with a return link torepparttar 102611 affiliate’s Web Site, so thatrepparttar 102612 storefront appears to be an important part ofrepparttar 102613 Web Site as a whole.

Storefronts increase credibility by offering a selection of products in a single setting. The storefront should not be one of many at an affiliate’s Web Site, but an integral part of their efforts. While this requires more work onrepparttar 102614 part ofrepparttar 102615 affiliate network,repparttar 102616 returns can be much greater. Popular portal sites use this strategy often, but by extending it to highly trafficked sites, you can increase branding and perceived value of what you offer.

A good idea is to mixrepparttar 102617 text/banner ad approach in number 2 to a storefront, so you can offer multiple products. A good rule of thumb is not to offer more than 3-5 products at another Web Site; too many choices confuserepparttar 102618 visitor.

Finally,repparttar 102619 most glaring lack of focus in most affiliate networks is ad copy. Words are what motivate people to read, act, and buy. Without a good headline, testimonial, and ad copy, all your efforts will be hindered. Be sure that you look atrepparttar 102620 words you use in any ofrepparttar 102621 four methods and findrepparttar 102622 ones that work best for you, and your affiliates. Adapt your words until you findrepparttar 102623 ones that pullrepparttar 102624 best.

As I like to say, there are two types of businesses online; those who test, and those who lose money. If you are not testing, counting, and quantifying your affiliate network efforts, you are missing most ofrepparttar 102625 value . . . guaranteed.
