Promoting SaaS Ecommerce as an Affiliate
Growth in the ecommerce industry is making an impact on affiliate marketers. Software as a service (SaaS) ecommerce models are growing each day and business owners and marketers are taking notice. As discussed in a previous post, the ecommerce industry is experiencing rapid gains, so now is a great time to get involved as an affiliate.
So, how does one become a successful affiliate for a SaaS ecommerce solution? Here are a few tips that will help you along the path to success:
â€¢ Make sure banners/text links are visible â€“ whatâ€™s the point in offering the opportunity if no one can find it on your website?
â€¢ Create a post and/or overview of the software and what it offers â€“ people need to know basic information about the product youâ€™re promoting and why they should use its included services.
â€¢ Create social media announcements on FB/Twitter â€“ use these free marketing tools to your advantage by fostering a community of followers who will appreciate your expert advice.
â€¢ Submit articles that discuss ecommerce on free submission sites â€“ set yourself apart as a thought-leader by posting high quality content that educates readers.
â€¢ Use text/banner links in your newslettersâ€“ give your readership a call to action (a reason to click on the banner) and see what the ecommerce solution is all about.
â€¢ Increase the visibility of your siteÂ¬ â€“ use online marketing methods like PPC, SEO and social media to get noticed in search engines for keywords related to ecommerce.
Affiliate marketing can be tricky, but it helps to be an affiliate for a reputable company that offers great pay-outs and support. The more well known the brand or web site you are promoting, the more likely a customer is willing to sign up for an offer or service. As an affiliate, your goal should be to find reliable SaaS ecommerce companies that offers everything an affiliate would want, including first-class customer service and a powerful ecommerce product offering.
