Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make money from blog. if you have a blog for sure you know what is affiliate marketing ?
So you got an affiliate link, you embed that link in your blog post/pages, however, you are not making money as expected.
Is this your situation?
There are so many reasons for not making money.
- Your visitor may not be finding interest in the product that you promote or your visitors may not be noticing the affiliate link.
- Personally, I always promote products which are used on my blog. That way my visitors find the products related to them. Because they are closely related to their problems and requirements.
It helps to solve visitors problems too.
At the same time, you should not forget to attract the visitors attention. There comes changing the color of an affiliate link.
When you change the color of the affiliate link your visitors will definitely find it attractive and it makes them click on it.
After all, that’s the first step we want to take, right?
