boost affiliate commissionsOne of the most exciting moments in our Internet Marketing lives is when we log into our affiliate accounts and see those most wanted commissions dropping in from different products we promote. Affiliate Marketing is actually one of the most interesting ways to earn income online. While you can actually make money in affiliate marketing without having a blog, bloggers have more advantages and can make real money with their blogs.

In this post, let’s see how we can boost affiliate commissions and make more money as bloggers and affiliate marketers.

1 – Promote products you use

One of the unfailing ways to make more sales is to promote products you have used and have real proof of their effectiveness. As a blogger, must of your readers trust you and take you for your words. If the success of your blogging lies behind a certain affiliate product, talk to your readers about it and show them how it helps you succeed. They will surely buy it for you to earn the commissions.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t promote other products though but more sales come in when you tell them ‘I use this products with satisfaction’ Note that some of the buyers that buy based on your endorsement will always turn to you for some level of support. Before you start yelling and and directing them to authors support page, try to offer some basic support as this goes far to increase trust and keep them reading your blog.

2 – Promote huge commissions products

It is almost a waste of time to promote products that pay cents except you are sure of mass sales. Personally, if a product does not pay $30+ in commission per sale, something else will have to push me into promoting it. If your audience are interested in mega products that pay 1000s of dollars in commission per sale, I encourage going for it. In such products, a few sales can keep you

smiling for days.

3 – Review products on your blog

Another way to boost commissions is to publish product reviews on your blog. This links back to point 1 above. Review products you have used pointing out exactly how you benefit from them. Again, you can also review products you have not used but you’ll have to bring out strong arguments and proofs of usefulness. Be sure to link to product sales page through your cloaked affiliate links else you may not get the commissions.

4 – Offer bonuses

This is an important point that really boost sales and puts more money into your pocket. Buyers love bonuses and to an extent, some buyers buy some products just to gain access to the bonuses offered. Isn’t that a boost?

If you are a product creator, you may go ahead and offer copies of your own product as bonus. I have practically put this to use and seen positive result. I offer CashDonator and ViralBird as bonuses to anyone who buys products online using my affiliate link. This is an evergreen strategy that has proven to be very effective.

See details how I use this strategy in this post on my blog and clone my method.

5 – Feature an affiliate product

Though I have not done this on my blog, I personally think it can be effective. The reason is that featured materials gain more exposure and attract more attention. A good idea maybe is to create a section on your blog where you regularly feature some recommended products. Try this out and watch results.

6 – Increase traffic to your blog

The more targeted traffic you get to your blog, the more you are able to make sales and earn more commissions. While search engine traffic generally converts more, you should not neglect referral traffic. Get positively involved in growing your social media reach. That’s one source of free referral traffic.

Now get involved in these things I have shared and see how your sales and affiliate commissions increase with time.

  2. Hi Enstine,
    You have given fabulous ideas for boosting affiliate commissions. I like your final point, only on increasing the traffic, we will be able to earn more commissions. Thanks for sharing this wonderful tips.

  3. Hi Enstine,

    Promoting products on your blog, evenother people’s goods works well after you build up a good reputation.

    If you continue to give a lot away for free, and then promote, you are more expected to boost your income than if you just traded goods and blogged on nothing else.

    I’d recommend bloggers only review and promote products that you’ve personally used. In affiliate marketing your job is to showcase the product in the right way to attract the buyers.

  17. Hi Enstine,

    I like very much the “promote products you use” tip. This is indeed the first step and this is what I do. When you promote a product you use, the impact of your reviews, articles and comments is far greater. People feel when somebody promotes a product but do not use it and this will have a negative impact.

    I will add my 2 cents here: The best type of products you must promote is “recurring” products, like membership sites, for example. This will allow you to make that little cash flow that will lead to more earnings on a long term.

    Have a wonderful day

  31. Vivek Sharma says:

    Featuring an Affiliate product on the site is one of the best way, we just need to write an awesome article on that affiliate product, automatically the readers will be forced to click on the affiliate link. Thanks Nikhil for the valuable information

    • Vivek writing good content is a positive aspect but what to do if no organic audience is coming….that’s the major problem i’m facing in my blogging career.

      • Hello Waqass, you are not the only one facing this problem, this is what makes a lot of bloggers to give up their blog after a few months or even weeks.
        What you should if no organic traffic is coming to your site is to first analysis your site if it has been penalized , if all is good, then you can start building quality traffic to your site.
        If however, the part of seo is confusing to you, then there a cheap seo firm that can help you.

  38. I like number 1 promote products you use and number 3 feature items on your blog. First of all it is easy to write about and something you have used yourself. Secondly it feels better ethically to endorse something you use and can honestly say is good.

  40. Hy Enstine,

    I always wonder what would be the best approach going for the low volume sales with high commisions or high volume sales with low commisions. I tend to go for the last one since most of the time they are more easily to rank for. SEO won’t be so hard than for other competitive keyword phrases… anyway great post and good tips!
