Using Different Affiliate Programs for Same Niche

12 replies
I'm planning to start a blog for drum lessons. I'm in the middle of keyword and niche research now. My question is simply this.

1. If I belong to several affiliate program(s) am I allowed to link to all of them, or more than 1 in 1 blog?

2. How do I send readers to different programs?

Thanks in advance for your patience and input.

    You can but then people might not come back or stay on your website long due to the fact that you are pitching affiliate links..And that will mess with your SEO perfoy because you will have a high bounce rate.Draft content ,publish ,share it, give people some value first.No one is just going to but from you without having an idea of who you are and also trusting you .

    You can join as many networks or programs as you wish.

    you should really collect email addresses via a squeeze page on your site. then use email marketing to promote affiliate links.

    You can drum up business promoting several programs. Track CTR and use a script to show ads that perform best more often. Cloak the links so you are SEO-proof.

    It's quite common to be a member of more than one affiliate program. For example, in my industry, people often promote several different hosting providers on their site or even on the same page. So, make sure to do it in a way that makes sense of provides value to your visitors but aside from that, go for it.

    Yes you can promote several different affiliate programs and I would also recommend that for several different reasons - but mostly, you can split test different offers to see which ones convert the best and focus your time and energy on that one.


    Also, if one offer is taken down, your income is still not affected in a big way because you have other products to promote.


    Tip: you can dramatically boost your income when promoting several affiliate offers by using comparison tables.


    Let your viewers know the differences among products, the pros the cons etc and let them see that you are genuinely trying to help them choose the best product for their unique situation.


    Hope that helps.

    The number of affiliate products you point to is irrelevant. It really doesn't matter at all. You are providing content on your blog and recommending products your readers can take a look at, it really is that simple. And what with social media platforms such as Instagram there to pull in the traffic (ensure you put blog link in bio), the sky truly is the limit.

    First of all you need to provide quality content which people are able to follow. Its actually making the loyal readership. Once done right then comes the monetization part and yes you can direct them to multiple programs , it isnt a problem as long as the offer is relevant. and believe me they are gonna buy it ONLY if you provide them value in your content so i suggest to first focus on building readership.

    Create a lead magnet to collect email addresses and promote it.

    Then you can promote any offers that you want / follow up via email at little cost.

    An email list is a real asset that no one can take away because you own it. Wherewith any other advertising delivery channel you just using someone else's platform and don't have any real control. One day they could change the rules in a way that negatively impacts you or give you the boot and you income comes to a stop.

    Of course you can join as many affiliate networks as you want, I think it's even suggested to test a different programs, maybe some will convert better ,some worst , test it out and see which one is best for your needs. But there is an issue as you said, how to send people to different aff networks if you place your link on website, some people suggested to build a list and it's really good advice, you could send email with different links with different aff networks. Also you can put a tracking link and see results which links got the most clicks, the most sales too.
