Affiliate marketing has proven to be a great method for driving traffic to eCommerce or retail websites, but often times newer affiliate marketers are not so good at this. They may drive some traffic to your website, but they fail to drive conversions for you, thus rendering affiliate marketing essentially worthless. However, by following these simple tips, you can improve your affiliate marketing campaigns and start driving more conversions today!

Provide Complete Info To Publishers

It’s very important that brands provide correct and thorough information about their products to their publishers. This will help them create appropriate ads that will grab attention of audience and drive conversions. You should also inform them about your popular items so that they can focus specially on them when creating their ads.

Offer Discounts

Offering discounts on specific purchases is a great way of increasing your conversion rate. Renowned online shopping websites offer exclusive discounts on some of their products every now and then which increase their sales dramatically. Another way to improve conversion is offering free delivery, as many people tend to avoid online shopping simply due to delivery charges.

Be Consistent

If you want to win the trust of your customers, you need to be consistent with your work. The promise that you display in your ad must be maintained when users visit your site. If you don’t live up to your promises on your site, your audience may think that it was just to drive them there and they will leave without buying anything.

Offer Competitive Stuff

Everyone wants to beat their competition, and the best way to do this online is by offering something unique and effective that others don’t. You should offer only reliable content with some discounts, free prizes, etc. This will attract potential customers and will persuade them to buy from you. Never lose your audience’s trust by delivering defective product or by taking more money than the original price of your product. You can offer a money back guarantee in your ad, to convince audience to trust you and buy from you.

One thought on “How To Drive Conversions Through Affiliate Marketing

  1. Shafiq, nice article. What I have been doing is re-targeting my prospects on facebook again. It has increased my affiliate conversions. Right now, I am testing it our with a couple of offers from Maxbounty.

    Your article is directed towards e-commerce site owners who wants to implement affiliate marketing on their site. May I suggest ? I just got an invite. Oh btw.. I am using for facebook re-targeting. These guys are cheap. I wonder if giving away a couple of re-targeting url’s to every affiliate marketer can increase sales for an ecommerce site owner.
