How you can promote your Printcious affiliation
Anyone can be a Printcious affiliate but the only way to make sure you receive the clicks you need is through your social media whether it may be through blogs, websites, e-mail newsletters or even Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. One way to get attention is to write up a killer review because nothing beats a killer review post about a product or brand!
This is how it works in a few simple steps:
Once you have your social media platform all set up, you should start with a promotion of your affiliation with Printcious. This can be done in various ways such as recommending our products to your followers or mentioning us in your newsletters.
If you know your targeted audience isn’t much of a reader, then let our banners speak for themselves. You might do this by placing our Printcious button or banner ad somewhere visible on your site.
Now, DON’T FORGET to include a special link to our Printcious products and services so followers can check it out for themselves. (Hint: This is how you make money.)
Once a follower uses your affiliate link to check out our products and decide to purchase something, you earn a commission.
You will receive a payout of your accumulated earnings when your earnings have reached a minimum of RM50.
How you can increase and redirect traffic to your website to encourage purchases at Printcious via your unique banner URL
Create meaningful content: This means to progressively and continuously produce relatable and valuable content on your website so that people will naturally want to get to know more and visit more often.
Be active on your social media: Get active on social media platforms and never miss an organic opportunity to share your affiliation with Printcious. And if you can, hang out where and when your target audience hangs out. All that effort will make promoting all that easier.
Be sure to link to your website from your social media: This means exactly what it says; remember to make your website accessible to the public to increase traffic on your blog and consequently increase the usage of your Printcious affiliation link.
Placement of links on your media: Facebook is an amazing platform for increasing your traffic but it has a nasty habit of cutting you off as you’re just beginning to get into the juicy bits.
So, to work around that you should place the URL further up in the text so that it doesn’t get buried or worse, require an extra click! If YouTube is your platform of choice, you best be aware of the same nasty habit it cultivates.
Build relationships with your fans and followers: You can build your traffic by getting friends and family to share and promote but that will only get you so far. So rather than sitting back and waiting for shares, be willing to step out and make connections. You could also attend IRL (in-real-life) events such as conferences, workshops or even meetups. It goes beyond just basic traffic-building. Networking can be a major turning point for your website and as a result, you’ll get more clicks on your affiliate banners.
