If you order a domain name from NameCheap.com, login to your account and select URL forwarding. Enter your affiliate link into the form and you’re done.
When your prospect clicks on YourDomainName.com they are automatically taken to the affiliate product or service you’re promoting. More of your prospects will click on your link and you will make more sales
Affiliate Strategy #2
Write articles and post them in article directories. Although this is nothing new, add your link from strategy 1 and you’ll see more readers clicking through to your affiliate website.
Affiliate Strategy #3
Record your articles as MP3s and post them on Podcast directory sites. This is a perfect example of re-purposing your material. Depending on the length of your article it can take you a couple minutes to record it as an MP3, then post it to podcast directories.
Make sure you remind people how to get to your website. In addition to simply telling people what your website URL is, spell it out for them letter by letter. It also helps when you’re spelling if you use the military alphabet, for example, A for Alpha, B for Bravo, C for Charlie. The easier you make it for people to get to your website, the more sales you’ll make.
These 3 strategies will increase your sales almost overnight, but there are hundreds of strategies you can quickly put into place to increase your sales exponentially.
