However, this holds true only for the large sites having massive web traffic.
For most others, this requires a lot more efforts on part of the affiliate. Enlisted are some important tips that affiliates may follow to have a successful affiliate program.
◊ Selecting the Right Banners: Before putting up any banner on your site, you must know which banners are best to be put up. The graphically rich sites are considered to be less successful than their simpler counterparts, as these sites take up longer to download. As a result, if your banner is the last thing to get downloaded, it might be possible that the users may just miss it and you may lose some potential customers.
◊ Pop Ups and Pop Unders: Though many merchants now give their affiliates an option of using pop ups and pop unders, it is advisable to avoid pop ups as far as possible. This is because, pop ups can often be quite annoying for the viewers and they may just close it without even giving a seconds glance to it. Instead one should go for a pop under ad and that too for the one’s that are displayed only once per visit.
◊ Text Link Ads: This is one of the most successful forms of advertising since, they take up very little space and can be implemented into almost any page layout. It is advisable to have short text links from the merchants so that the you can put it with the content of relevant articles and reviews.
◊ Approach Advertising Agencies: The advertisers can present to you thousands of advertising agencies which can help you get better involved with affiliate programs and also allow you to have a consolidated payment. Though, it is often difficult to keep track of individual advertisers, you should not fail to consider them.
◊ Developing Blogs: A blog can be considered as a great marketing tool to sell your products. This is because, on a blog you can mention everything from a product review to promotional articles, etc. about your products.
