I’ve decided to start a new blog post series which is basically about ways you can make money from your affiliate marketing efforts besides just from the normal way of buying some PPC traffic, sending it to a landing page, website, etc and then sending it to an offer which if they complete you’ll get paid!
There are several other ways out there to make money from your efforts on top of what you’ll get if they fill out the offer. Some work better for certain niches, but I’m just here to give you the information, the testing is up to you!!!
The first topic I’m going to touch on in this series is…
Signing your visitors up for a Newsletter!
While it’s great getting a visitor to complete an offer so that you can make some bank, sometimes depending on the niche, it could be wiser to not only try to pitch them the offer, but also try to get them to sign up for a newsletter pertaining to your niche.
Signing visitors up for a newsletter allows you to pitch products or services to each visitor more than once! So instead of a visitor filling out one offer for $5 dollars, they may end up filling out 3 offers for $5 dollars EACH!!! This means more bank in your pocket for the same price you paid for that visitor.
Now, there is also one MAJOR downside to offering a newsletter sign up on an affiliate page. I know half of you were already thinking it and were just waiting to finish reading this so you could post it in the comments, but I’m gonna beat you to it! (haha) The big downside to offering a newsletter sign up is the fact that you could hurt your conversions if you don’t do it correctly!
Instead of trying to tell you all the ways that you shouldn’t offer a newsletter sign up, I’m gonna give you some pointers on things to try out to make sure you keep your conversions as high as possible while collecting those valuable email addresses.
One thing you need to realize however, is that you most likely won’t be able to keep the same exact conversion rate you had before you started offering a newsletter sign up. The goal is to keep it as high as possible, but realize that it dropping a bit isn’t going to hurt you as long as you are building a good solid list that you can send offers to regularly to more than make up for the loss!
Here are some ways you can keep your conversion rate high while still offering a newsletter sign up.
- Try having it as a pop-under or pop-up when they click from your landing page to the offer page.
- Offering a free report or e-book on your niche which will bring up your offer again in it. That way if they leave your page after signing up for the newsletter but not completing the offer, you can try to get them to one last time! You’d be surprised at how well this actually works!
- Automatically send them to the offer page after they sign up for your newsletter! Don’t send them back to your landing page only for them to have to click on another button to go to the offer page!
Of course there are many other things you can try and test in order to make sure you’re receiving the highest conversion rate possible when trying to collect names and emails, but hopefully these ideas can get you started.
