Top 5 Tools for Affiliate Marketing
Skimlinks provides a simplistic method for affiliates to monetize content on their sites. Their secret sauce is being able to turn any retailer link on your site into an affiliate link. If you’re fine with giving Skimlinks a 25% cut for being the middleman, it’s not too shabby of a deal for busy affiliate marketers.
2. WordPress SEO by Yoast
WordPress SEO Plugin by Yoast tackles the largest challenge faced by affiliates – generating traffic. Yoast gives you the ability to tweak and visualize your content in a way that gives on-page SEO boosts and increases organic ranking. With Yoast, you’ll be generating more traffic per page and thereby creating more opportunities to make sales.
There are many email marketing solutions on the market, but only one can rise to the top of the affiliate ranks. GetResponse gets our vote here because it runs the gamut of affiliate marketing solutions. Features such as autoresponder, email marketing, e-commerce integrations, and more all serve as valuable tools for marketers who like expansive feature sets.
4. Thirsty Affiliates Plugin
Thirsty Affiliates is a WordPress plugin that manages the entire lifecycle of affiliate links. WordPress links are saved and categorized instantly so you don’t have to log-in and out of affiliate networks to insert product links. And if that wasn’t helpful enough, Thirsty Affiliates also gives you the ability to beautify links and auto-link keywords that are not already effectively monetized.
Last but not least, our top affiliate tool is our own affiliate network!
