If you already have experience in the affiliate marketing industry, you are probably looking for solutions that match your level of advancement. There are many tools that will help you increase your earnings while minimizing the amount of time spent on working. We'll take a closer look at some of them today, but let's start by determining whether it is worth it at all.
The answer to this question is unclear. When promoting affiliate programs, you decide for yourself how much time you want to dedicate to affiliate marketing. This is an incredible convenience, allowing you to subordinate your work to other life activities and not the opposite. At the same time, this makes it impossible to accurately determine your projected earnings. But is it possible to work little and earn a lot?
Yes, it is. Once you achieve a certain level of professionalism, affiliate marketing provides many ways to make passive income on the Internet. You can take advantage of your referral network and receive a commission from it. You can also use your traffic source if it reached a high level of popularity, or decide to use some tools.
With affiliate marketing, you can earn by promoting single affiliate programs, or in cooperation with an affiliate network. If you already have the experience, you certainly know what comes with affiliate networks. First of all, they give access to a huge number of partner programs using only one account. This allows you to compare all your results in one place without having to switch between platforms. Besides, in case of any technical or promotional problems, you can contact an industry-experienced support team that will provide you with the most beneficial solutions. Affiliate networks also provide you with accurate and useful statistics, and sometimes even knowledge and tools.
One of the best affiliate networks I've seen is MyLead. Unlike its competitors, MyLead doesn't focus on a single topic but offers its publishers a very diverse offer. Currently, it has over 1600 affiliate programs in several categories, including business, health and beauty, travel, and entertainment. Campaigns are settled in five models: CPL, CPS, CPA, COD, and PPI.
In addition to a wide range of affiliate programs, a significant advantage of MyLead is a large selection of tools available to monetize your traffic sources. They have a dozen of them, and a detailed description can be found on the MyLead website in the “Tools for webmasters” tab. I will focus on a few that I find most interesting.
Redesigned Content Locker on MyLead is currently available in four different subtypes: CPA Content Locker, Captcha Locker, File Locker, and Mobile Rewards. This tool allows blocking access to a specific part of your website's content and makes it available only in return for completing particular tasks from the list of offers. With Content Locker, you can earn extra money from the content published on your website.
CPA Content Locker is the most basic model of Content Locker. With advanced editing capabilities, you can adjust, both graphics and texts to match them to your traffic source and audience.
Captcha Locker is similar to the well-known verification system reCAPTCHA that protects websites from bots. When it appears on your website, users will intuitively go through the next steps to confirm that they are human. It will allow you to earn more.
File Locker is a tool to monetize the files you publish. These may include photos, videos, e-books, or tutorials. To achieve greater effectiveness of this functionality, you have to provide particularly interesting material. A description encouraging its download will also be helpful.
With Mobile Rewards, you can earn on your own mobile applications. For completing tasks from the list of offers, users will receive points that can be exchanged for prizes. You decide for yourself whether it will be access to the premium part of your mobile app or, for example, a game add-on.
Video Locker, exactly like Content Locker, allows you to block material on your website but is limited to video files. To access them, your recipients will have to pay a fee through SMS or an affiliate program. The videos you share can be various, from vlogs to professional tutorials.
One of the tools available on MyLead that does not require you to have a website or your mobile application is a deep link. This functionality facilitates the promotion of specific products and services, available on the advertiser's website, by directing their recipients straight to the appropriate subpage. Thanks to this, users will not have to go through the homepage, which will allow them to reduce the time needed to make a purchase and thus increase your conversion.
To use smartlinks, it is enough to have any type of traffic source. They are particularly useful when your audience is made up of people from different countries. This functionality, based on the IP address, states where your recipients are located and redirects them to the page in their local language.
If you don't use any affiliate network yet, or if your current one is unsatisfactory for you, you should consider setting up a free account on MyLead. It will only take a few minutes, and you will be able to see for yourself whether their offer is suitable for you.
