How to cloak your affiliate link

If you are promoting an affiliate product, you will be given an affiliate link.
For example,if you are promoting a clickbank product,you may have a link as follows :

http://XXX.clevergiz.hop.clickbank.net?cgpage=keyword-researcher

This is for a product called Keyword Researcher.
You would replace the XXX with your affiliate ID.

However,it doesn’t look very professional,which is why there are a number of URL shorteners available.

2 of the more popular ones are

1 bit.ly

2 Google’s offering called Goo.gl

Again,these are not very professional and don’t relate to your own identity or brand.

My favourite URL shortener ( or link cloaker as it is sometimes known )
is a WordPress plug-in called Pretty Link

It is very easy to use, and to show you how to use it I have made a video below.

If you need any help or have any comments,please do no hesitate to contact me.

Affiliate marketing-how to find products on clickbank

If you’re involved in internet marketing you’ve probably heard of clickbank.
That’s www.clickbank.com, which is a very good site if you want to sell digital products.

In selecting a product to sell these are the points that I consider:

1 Select something that you know about or are passionate about.

Apart from the obvious Internet marketing, you may be interested in sports, personal development, gardening or a host of other niches.

This may seem obvious but some people just chase the money without knowing anything about the subject. If you do this, you will eventually you’ll get fed up and you’ll run out of steam.

2 You need to do make sure that it’s a good sales page. Ask yourself whether you would buy from this yourself .If so, there’s a good chance that other people will also buy the product.

3 Check that the product is selling well otherwise there’s no point in selling a product that  nobody wants . This is found in the gravity, all of which is included in the video below .

4 Another very important point is the affiliate page.You need to make sure that you’re going to be well supported on this product so if you look at the affiliate page and you see banners and email swipes then there’s a good chance that this is well supported product.

5 Also,if possible, go for something will a rebill. This means that people will pay monthly, which means you will receive a monthly commission.

These are the things that I look for,all of which I cover in the video below :
