Domain Gateway Pages

Written by Tobe Johnson

Many affiliate sites today create self-duplicating web pages for affiliates to use. The web site URL often looks something like http://www.company_site.com/xxxyyy/?your_name&zzz or one of hundreds of variations of this. This is not bad in itself, however, if you are serious about making money viarepparttar Internet, there is one piece that is a MUST for Internet Marketers. It is called a DOMAIN GATEWAY PAGE.

What is a domain gateway page? A domain gateway page is a web site address such as http://www.your-name.com set up so that when someone access' your web site, they get YOUR information for your affiliate program (whatever affiliate program you are marketing). For example, instead of marketing http://www.collector-club.com/DET/members/101321/index.shtml (a sample company URL assigned to you from net detective), you would market http://your-name.com instead and it would pull up your net detective page in this shorter URL. More specifics on this will follow.

Why is a domain gateway page a MUST?

1--No Lost Orders:

When someone visits http://www.company_site.com/?your-id=xxxxxxyyyrepparttar 102608 tendency that happens quite often is thatrepparttar 102609 /?your-id=xxxxxxyyy part ofrepparttar 102610 URL will get left offrepparttar 102611 URL (web address); so you are no longer get credited forrepparttar 102612 order. Another common problem is that a visitor getsrepparttar 102613 long complicated URL wrong (ie: http://www.collector-club.com/DET/members/101321/index.shtml); so again it is a lost order for you. What happens if they come back torepparttar 102614 main site inrepparttar 102615 future and don't put in your id#? You got it. It's another lost order for you.

Another problem with associate program self-duplicating pages is that some search engines don't acceptrepparttar 102616 /?your-id=xxxxxxyyy portion of a URL. As you go out and market your site acrossrepparttar 102617 Internet, some (many) ofrepparttar 102618 search engines will not acceptrepparttar 102619 /?your-id=xxxxxxyyy inrepparttar 102620 address, so will drop that part ofrepparttar 102621 address.... thus, people get dumped intorepparttar 102622 main company site instead of your site.....more of your orders get lost or redirected torepparttar 102623 main company site.

Now, don't get me wrong. I am not bashing associate programs orrepparttar 102624 way their self-duplicating pages are set up. I am simply providing information to help you use those programs more effectively.

2--Business centered marketing:

With your own domain name, you can do all of your marketing by promoting http://www.your-name.com vs. another web site name. This will also allow you to have your email address as you@your-name.com (it can be automatically forwarded into wherever you currently check your email, so nothing on your end has to change). This putsrepparttar 102625 focus of your marketing efforts around YOU and YOUR domain name vs.repparttar 102626 vendor company's domain name and creates a business centric marketing stategy for you. You can then set up additional businesses around this same name to market additional products.... such as http://www.your-name.com/company2/ and http://www.your-name.com/company3/. Now, what happens if someone drops offrepparttar 102627 /company2/ portion of that URL? They are dumped into another of YOUR companies and you never loose a potential client!
