Affiliate Marketing is a a type of internet marketing where a business (or ‘merchant’) rewards others (‘registered affiliates’) by way of an ‘affiliate commission’ for each customer or sale resulting from the affiliates’ marketing efforts.
If you are writing for affiliate marketers, or are an affiliate marketer yourself, here are some tips on how to place and format links to ensure they are accepted by most article distribution sites:
- Write quality articles that provide real information about the topic
- Don’t include the ‘whole story’. You need to provide just enough information on the topic to encourage readers to click on your link to find out more!
- Where Resource Boxes are used, make the information you include relevant to the article. Don’t use the same Resource Box over and again, unless it relates to the article.
- Don’t put your life story in the Resource Box. Rather demonstrate that you have particular knowledge on the topic of the article.
- Place affiliate links in the Resource Box if one is provided.
- Ideally the author should own the linked redirected URL
- Some directories require that links be to the primary domain (e.g. http://website-name.com), and disallow links like:
- There is no substitute for quality! If you cannot write a good article, get someone who can to do it for you!
