Engaging your visitors on-site to increase value

One of the biggest challenges we face as affiliates is to ensure that our visitors have a reason to come back to our site.  Sure, we write good, engaging and entertaining content, but it helps to ensure you have tools and services that keeps them coming back.

One such tool is the newly developed ‘white label’ accommodation search engine, powered by the Hotels.com affiliate program on OfferForge.  It’s a nicely iframed solution that keeps your visitor on-site longer and adds value (and commissions!)

It’s a 1st generation and by the middle of July will boast a city search that looks up as you type and doesn’t require a country selection first. I like it, but its your opinion that counts.

Test it out and let me know what you think.

Oh, integration’s a snap – you can find the code here: Hotels.com Affiliate Search Tool

Content Locking to Increase Affiliate Revenue

For those affiliate marketers looking to increase affiliate revenue via the growing incentive CPA market, content locking may be the answer. The concept is simple: content locking is a way for affiliates to earn additional income by “locking” their desired content behind a CPA offer. It works like this:

A visitor finds a website that contains informative content. The visitor reads a few lines, but the majority of content is blurred out and hidden behind a pop-up window. If the user wishes to have access the rest of the desired content, he/she needs to complete an action (fill out a survey, submit an email address, purchase a product, etc.).

Is content locking right for you?

To successfully increase income using content locking, the web site (or blog) needs information that visitors covet. The content should be desirable enough that visitors willingly complete the offer to get to the text or download. Sites that naturally work well with content locking include those that sell content such as: movie trailers, gaming guides, funny videos, etc.

Not all offers can be used with content locking software; in particular only incentivized offers are acceptable. Most CPA offers do not allow content locking.
