Every business has a season when sales hit the top of the roof. For affiliate marketers, it’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This is the season of the year when affiliate marketers get the highest sales. The main reason is, product/service owners offer crazy discounts.
Your job as an affiliate marketer is to let your readers know about these deals and offers to boost your affiliate sales.
But you need to be creative while promoting these discounts. In this post, I’ll share seven quick ways that will help you to increase your affiliate sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This is the best way to increase affiliate sales during this season. You can write 2 type of blog posts.
These two types work best. But don’t limit yourself. Try to come up with more ideas.
Now the question is, when should you publish those posts?
My recommendation is, publish those posts as soon as you come to know about the deals. You can set Google Alerts and subscribe to your affiliates to get the discount news.
Publishing earlier will help you to get rank on Google. And once you get rank on a Google, you will see some quick sales.
The first year when I came to know about Black Friday & Cyber Monday, I only got a few sales. But the next year was a boom as I started getting ranks for those posts. So publish your posts ASAP and promote them.
If you are in affiliate marketing for a while, you know which posts are generating more sales.
Now it’s time to take it to the next level. The quickest way to boost affiliate sales is to optimize those posts.
Here are few things you can do to optimize those posts.
By the way, you don’t have to use all of the above things in a single blog post.
Subscribers are your loyal readers. You need to be picky while sending deals to your subscribers. They would not like to get every offer in their email box.
And moreover, email is a personal thing. It should have a personal touch. So send something like “My Favorite Black Friday Deals.” It has a personal bit, and it will trigger people to check the deals.
And another thing you can do is, sending the crazy deals like 80% OFF.
Just send the deals that matter.
We usually use the sidebar to show ads, social media widget, or to collect emails. During the Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we will be using it for promoting the best offers.
You can add a list of your favorite deals on the sidebar or some sales of popular products. Whatever you are going to do, keep it clutter free.
But there is a problem; sidebar often gets unnoticed. Here are few things you can do to make it noticed.
Be creative and use your sidebar wisely.
Notification Bar can generate some quick sales if you can use it wisely. I mainly promote “Flash Sales” or “Big Discounts” on the notification bar. And it works great.
I am using Ribbon Template of Thrive Leads to show notification bar. But you can use other plugins like:
Only promote the deal that your audience will love.
Popups are annoying. But it converts like crazy if you can do it right.
Here two things I do to make popups less annoying and converting.
I can implement these techniques by using Thrive Leads plugin. It has everything to make popup works.
This is something that I have never done in the previous years. But this year I am planning to do some social media promotions for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
You can do this too. Just make sure that your landing page is highly optimized for conversion. And promote those deals that convert well in last year.
Hope these ways will help you to increase your affiliate sales (link) during this Black Friday & Cyber Monday.
