time that it
takes to absorb and implement the material.
In Marketing, appearances can make a huge difference.
Professional looking web pages will
make more sales than
so so looking pages. Likewise, the
image that the URL
of a web page portrays can make a huge difference
in the amount of
click throughs that it gets. Those long
affiliate address's may point to a
page, but you might not be getting all the click throughs
Compare the following addresses and then decide which
one you are more apt to click on:
Not a tough decision is it. Just for readability alone, the
second one wins.
Okay, now that you're convinced let's talk about how to
For some time now I knew that I really had to tackle this
job, but wasn't looking forward
to it. After all, it involves
editing html code. I'd rather write my ezine or answering
emails. What a pleasant surprise I had to find that the
job was completed in just a
few short minutes. It is
actually a very easy thing to do.
For this example we are going to assume that you
belong to an affiliate program that sells
toasters (I'm not
aware of any in existence).
Here are the steps:
1) Create a new page in your Web page
program. You should title it something like http://www.yoursites.com/toasters.htm
2) Go into the html code editor of your
of course you are creating it from straight html).
3) Delete all codes that are already there.
4) Copy the following code and paste it into
your html editor.
The only change that you will want to make to the above
code for your real affiliate
program is to replace
with the actual address to your own page affiliate program.
Don't forget to include your
unique identity at the end so that
the affiliate program software can credit you with the
business that comes in from your efforts.
5) Change the address on your advertising to
reflect the new,
professional address that you have just created for your
There is another possibility for this coding. You can track your
site traffic more
efficiently. What if you had just created three
ads for your affiliate program and you
wanted to test them
before investing a lot of money into promoting them. How
could you use
this method to do that?
Easy! Just create three separate redirect pages. They could
You would then cue the URL's with the three different ads
and you've got a bulletproof
tracking system for your test run.
There is another variation to this method. Instead of creating
a new page for each ad you
can keep the original address
and simply insert a question mark after the .htm (or .html)
and add your own ad codes. Here is an example:
This will not affect the actual link address location. However
many stats programs will
read it so you can see the results
of your add testing in the statistics.
Want another idea that will help you to keep visitors
When someone sees an interesting link (perhaps your new
affiliate program) and clicks on
it, they are gone. Maybe they
purchase your affiliate product - maybe they don't. They may
never come back to your site and see what else you have to
offer them. Here is a simple
solution to that problem.
Set the link to open up a new window. It is very easy. Here's
what you need to do:
note: We are still using the toasters example.
1) In your html editor look for the link
code. It should look similar
2) Simply add this extra bit of code at the
Your new code will look like this:
<a href="traffic.htm target="_blank">
Voila, whenever someone clicks on that particular link they
will go that page in a new
window. Your original page is
still open in their browser.
