Boosting Your Commissions with a Bonus Strategy
Now one thing that may mean the difference between you getting the commission and someone else is if you create a bonus to accompany your promotion as an affiliate. You can do this even with tangible items, if you have a digital bonus offer to go with it.
For example, let’s say you had a blog post review of the top 10 dumbbells on a site of your choice. You could tell your readers that if they buy any of the sets through your link, you can have them send you their receipt for proof and you will send them a PDF tips report on a back, chest, and arms workout they can do with the dumbbells.
You can do the same with digital products, but what’s even better is you can upload your files on most platforms so that the buyer automatically gets access to your bonus whenever they buy through your link.
Make sure your bonus is competitive and calculated – that it’s relevant and accompanies the original topic nicely. If you’re promoting an exercise program, then you might offer a meal prep bonus book.
Monetizing your offers as an affiliate is a two-step process. First, you have to condition yourself to remember to monetize every piece of content you release online, whenever possible. Then, you have to be strategic in how you monetize it so that your earnings are maximized and not just hit or miss.
