Promote Your Affiliate Program , How to promote?

 




You have bought the right affiliate software. And you have taken the time to design an attractive affiliate marketing program to attract new customers. But if you do not promote your affiliate program on the right channels, then all your launch efforts will be in vain.

After all, successful affiliate marketing will require you to recruit affiliates – bloggers, social media personalities, niche experts, or customers who place your affiliate links on their channels.


Promoting your affiliate program ensures that these potential affiliates are able to find your program, and sign on to help generate new leads and sales.

How to promote your affiliate program? We go some proven affiliate marketing strategies that you can implement right now, whether you're an ecommerce brand, a B2B SaaS, or any other type of online business.








Build a Well Designed Affiliate Program Page

We need to start this list with your affiliate program page, as it is central to your entire affiliate program (and your promotional efforts).


The affiliate program page is where your potential affiliates learn all about your program and what it has in store for them.

All your promotional efforts will be focused on getting potential affiliates to this page. Then, when they are interested enough to learn more, it is the affiliate program page that will sell the program!




What should you include on your affiliate program landing page?


An attractive call-to-action (bold header text that draws people in and "sells" your program in a few short words)

Affiliate commission rate you offer

Is the commission a uniform rate or a percentage of each sale?

Are higher commission rates or bonuses offered for top affiliates?

An explanation of how your program works

Image of a compelling protagonist to catch the eye of a potential ally

Clear affiliate program terms and conditions so potential affiliates know what to expect

Include requirements for an affiliate to earn a commission, how long the affiliate tracking cookie lasts, whether the first or last affiliate link click yields a commission, what affiliates can and can't do, and how affiliates will be paid.

Mention it in Email Marketing and Newsletters

Promoting your affiliate program within email reaches directly to your existing customers when it is most important. Here are some examples:


You can invite your top customers to join your affiliate program with a personalized email. Thank them for being such a great customer, highlight how they've helped your business, then explain the win-win structure of your affiliate program (they earn passive income and you get more exposure).

Or you can tell all your email list subscribers that you have an affiliate program with a dedicated promotional email. (Mentioning your commission rate is a good way to pique your customer's interest.)

Promote your affiliate program in transaction or thank you emails, which are sent at a time when customers are most engaged with your brand.

Include a section about your affiliate program in your regular email newsletter.

Your email signature is in every message, so why not use it to promote your event quickly?

Whatever method you choose to promote your affiliate program via email, be sure to include a direct link to your affiliate program's landing page.


    




Promote on social media channels

Social media is where your audience goes for the inside scoop. So make sure to promote your affiliate program on the social media platforms that your audience visits most often.


Create engaging posts that link directly to your affiliate program. And be sure to tweak the wording and imagery of your post to capture the attention of any potential collaborators.


Just like your email signature, your social media bio is too underrated to add a link to your affiliate program. Announce "We have an affiliate program!" and drop in that link.


Video is a particularly effective way to take advantage of social media – video content really grabs attention. Why not create an engaging YouTube video about your affiliate program and cross-promote it on other social platforms? Or, you can go live on Facebook to promote your event.


Use Strategic SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Your key potential affiliates are probably already searching for affiliate programs to join. Make sure they can easily find your affiliate landing page by optimizing it for popular niche and industry keywords, adding "affiliate program" to the end of the keyword. (For example, "baby affiliate program" or "stuff affiliate program.")

Join Paid Ads (PPC Ads)

Paying for Google AdWords based on common search terms is another effective way to get exposed to potential affiliates. The same goes for Facebook ads that target people who are in your ideal demographic and have an audience or peer group that matches your own.

As long as your commissions are competitive, highlighting your affiliate commissions in these ads is especially effective.








Join affiliate forums and groups

Affiliate forums and social media groups are dedicated places for affiliates to search for business tips and new opportunities. Experienced affiliate marketers frequent these sites to find new products in their niche that they can promote.

Consider posting about your own affiliate program in a forum or group (following any guidelines, of course), and watch affiliates come to you.

However, it may be best to build your presence and share your expertise before promoting your affiliate program. In this way, you will foster trust among colleagues in the group, making them even more likely to participate in your event.

Affilorama and Affiliate Fix are two examples of active affiliate marketing forums.





Join industry forums and social media groups
Industry-related forums and social media groups (eg, Facebook groups, LinkedIn groups) are great places to stay up-to-date with trends and conversations in your niche.

They also provide a great way to find experts who would be willing to share your products or services. With forum participants already familiar with your niche and active in related discussions, many of them should be suitable candidates for your affiliate program.

But don't spam forums or groups with ads for your event. Instead, get to know people who you think would be good allies. Answer their questions, help solve their problems and show off your expertise.

If your product or service is a major solution to someone's problem, even better - they'll probably be game to try out your brand, and if they benefit from what you offer, they should be able to promote it. I will be happy

After you have created a forum or group presence and a relationship with relevant experts, reach out personally with a private message and let them know about your affiliate program. Share all the relevant information and specifications of what's in it for them.



List your program in affiliate directories
Affiliate directories are another place experienced affiliates often find new opportunities to earn commissions. Essentially, these directories list affiliate programs by niche or industry. Compared to forums and social media groups, finding them is a much easier and somewhat straightforward way to promote your affiliate program.

Often, your listing has to be approved first. You won't have the opportunity to personalize pitches like other promotional methods. If you are looking for an affiliate directory listing, we recommend balancing them with other personal promotions.

AffiliatesDirectory and AffiliateGuide are some examples of Affiliate Directory.
