Affiliate links are the key tool in your affiliate toolkit, but do you know how to use them effectively? Don’t worry if you don’t. In this video, you’ll learn six hands-on tips to get the most out of your affiliate links. Let’s dive in.

Tip #1: Add affiliate links into relevant content and make it clear to your audience how they can benefit from clicking these links.

Tip #2: Don’t overload your content with links. Too many affiliate links will make your page spammy, which may turn your audience off.

Tip #3: Create deep links that drive users directly to the page for the offer you’re promoting. This will make the user experience seamless and boost your conversions. In Travelpayouts, you can create such links hassle-free with the Link Generator tool.

Tip #4:Remember to cloak your affiliate links. This means that you need to disguise your link by putting it behind a link that doesn’t look like an affiliate URL. Link cloaking helps you protect your affiliate ID, while making your links shorter and more visually appealing. With link cloaking, you can turn an affiliate link that looks like this: into a short and neat link that looks like this:

But how can you cloak a link? It’s super easy. The web offers a lot of cloaking tools, including the Pretty Links Plugin, Thirsty Affiliates, WooCommerce, Linkly, and others.

Also, most of these tools give you a chance to track affiliate links and provide valuable insights.

The next must-follow tip is: Always make it crystal clear that you may earn commissions for purchases made through links on your website, at no extra cost for your audience. Why? First, you need to do this to stay on the right side of the law. Second, keeping your affiliate relationships secret can destroy the trust and reputation you worked so hard to build.

And finally, Tip #6: To maximize your earnings, experiment with affiliate links and their placement and track how well your links perform.

Let’s wrap things up.
