Affiliate marketing can help your company earn more profit. If you handled it the wrong way, you may lose more income online.

Most online marketers turn to affiliate programs to help them boost their product or service campaigns. The only catch, though, is most affiliates, moreover new companies, commit mistakes in their programs. A few of their activities bring failure instead of success to your business.

Check out the five mistakes new firms in affiliate marketing often commit.blunders

  1. They sound too good to be true. To generate money online, you need more time and effort to build your business. Buyers are wiser now. They are skeptical. You cannot convince them in seconds. You cannot tell them your products are better than others present in the market. They need more proof before they will try any product. If you sell too hard, they may ignore your pitch because they recognize that sounding too good to be true is not genuine.
  2. They lack credibility. You should earn the trust and respect of prospective clients. If you fail to convince and make them believe you, they will not check your sales pitch. A “buy this now” tag on your web pages will not boost your authority. Instead of forcing them to buy, why not inform them and/or give them advice. Explain to and help potential buyers understand why your products are important. In doing this, you ought to research and analyze your market to give visitors correct information. Show you are familiar with your products and services.
  3. They handle a bunch of affiliate programs. Controlling large affiliate programs may cause mismanagement. New firms are inept to handle multiple programs. Focus is very important in handling the procedures, yet handling multiple programs is sometimes unavoidable. Thus, you ought to choose an experienced affiliate company to make sure your account gains the importance it needs.
  4. They fail to weigh the campaign’s success. Tracking is a vital activity in affiliate marketing. It will help you watch the clicks, trace the sale, assign commissions, and realize which page is converting well, too.
  5. They ignore new methods and techniques. The online field is competitive.  Dump old methods and embrace new market trends. SEO and web traffic will always challenge your online business. You need to find and practice novel ways that will grow your online business.

Google vs. Interstitials and Search Results: A Threat to Affiliates?

Posted by site_master on June 15, 2015  /   Posted in Uncategorized

Affiliate programs are now a common marketing strategy among online businesses today. Compared to other digital marketing practices, it lets other people get involved in the process, making the whole digital strategy more personal and effective.

Sadly, marketing tricks aren’t stable online. Trends vary and search algorithm transforms from time to time. Worse, these changes occur abruptly, leaving online marketers stunned on what to do next.

With Google reportedly planning to devalue contents hiding behind interstitial pages (The SEM Post, June 2015), affiliates once again face another challenge of keeping up with the trends. How will this change affect them and what should they do to rise above it? Click on the image below to see an example from Forbes.com

Why Affiliates Use Interstitial Ads?

An interstitial is a page that pops up whenever a user views in between a web page, mobile site page, or an application. Normally, these ads give users the choice to read on its content or close the page. They can either click on the “Skip this advertisement” link or look for the “x” button to exit. While this page has many purposes, many sites contain one to advertise their own or other people’s business.

For affiliates, interstitials mean opportunity. They give publishers the greater chance of earning profit as they allow users to read on the content and consider the offers presented on it. Compared to banners, these ads compel more potential consumers to get to know a product or service more and succumb to the offer. It’s no wonder, many advertisers and merchants prefer to work with sites that have or can offer such ads.

Google vs. Affiliates?

While Google will not ban web sites with interstitial pages, its plan to devalue contents behind these ads will surely affect the search results ranking of many business sites, particularly those who use them most—affiliates.

For this search engine giant, interstitials violates mobile optimization guidelines. They offer poor user experience and often block users from seeing what they want. Hence, to negate this, Google is eager to include interstitials as a “negative ranking factor.” It targets to lower the SEO grades of the sites that use them.

If you are an affiliate, will this new search system affect you? Can you sway people to shift to another search engine?

How to Avoid Drawbacks

Versus Yahoo, Bing, and Ask, Google remains to be the most popular and most used search engine tool worldwide. As of June 2015, it still tops the eBizMBA ranking and has about 1.1 billion estimated unique visitors every month. Hence, if you’re considering snubbing Google’s notice on interstitials, then you might have to think about it again.

Sure, the new algorithm works to your disadvantage, but you have to follow the trends. As everyone goes mobile, your web site has to go mobile, too. Instead of placing “bad” full screen ad, you may use smaller banners or create persuasive contents to advertise. After all, your online presence depends on your applied SEO techniques.
