Affiliate Squeeze Pages - Am I nuts?

15 replies
Hey -

I do not own a product. I'm an affiliate marketer and I'm considering placing ALL my different product squeeze pages on ONE WP-website. Why? To help organize myself by placing all my squeeze pages on one site. It will be a generic domain and I'll place the squeeze pages on the pages of the WP site. Example: mydomain.com/heath-1 or mydomain.com/Sports-1

Most or all my affiliate links are cloaked for tracking purposes anyway...plus Google seldom will index a squeeze page. I'm not seeking free organize traffic...I use PPV (CPV) and solo ads for traffic purposes.

Question is; Does anyone see a problem or issue with this or any unforeseen problems down the line? I hate to do this and then have to change it all later. I just don't see any reason to have a domain or website for each affiliate squeeze page.

Am I nuts or what?

I appreciate any and all suggestions, comments or remarks.

Joe

    I don't see an issue with it at all. On your main page do box link things like on wholefoodsmarket.com. To each of your pages.

    I don't see an issue with this at all and sounds like a good idea for more traffic and better organization.

  • No, that's intelligent how you're planning on doing it.

    In fact, I have several squeeze pages set to sub-domains of my site instead of folders.

    Example: KEYPHRASE.MYURL.com

    I used to have a site like this when i was younger and didnt know what i was getting into. But it still got sales - despite the super general URL name. Give it a shot.... my only concern for you is backend income. How will you manage it?

      Hey Randall,

      I don't think the op will have any problems with the backend as they will mostly be affiliate links in the follow-up emails or broadcasts.

      Plus, at the end of his follow-up messages, he could promote the free stuff that is on his other squeeze pages. Since the subscribers will be finishing the follow-up sequence from one list, sending people to another squeeze page or two will get the people from one list to another really easy.

      When you use affiliate products for the backend there is no problem that I can see here. It just depends on how effectively he get his autoresponder to work for him.

      Best regards,
      Steve Yakim

    I see no problems with your plan. a lot of marketers do it that way.
    You can also use wordpress multisite to organize your project.

    Another bonus to the concept of keeping all the affiliate pages on one site is you DON'T look like a micro site which Google seems to be moving away from. I don't know what kind of content you put on your site, but if you do post relevant info and articles, you're moving towards that Google-friendly gem known as an 'authority' site.

    I understand you're not actively seeking organic traffic, but free targeted traffic is always a bonus.

    I don't see how it could go wrong, especially if you're domain name is generic. It's definitely going to make your life much easier.

    I personally leave a site without a second thought if I get the feeling it's too generic. And having a domain name that is generic or completely unrelated to the webpage I'm on, yes, I would leave very quickly.

    My suggestion is to get a domain for each market your in, and build new directories within each for the niches within that market.

      I think you guys that say the domain is all that important are being to picky. After all there are all kinds of domain names that have nothing to do with what the site does or is about.

      Examples...

      Google.com
      GoDaddy.com
      Twitter.com

      These names just happen to be well known but their domain name says noting about the site itself.

      They are nothing like TireRack.com, which you can kind of guess the site is about tires.

      I do it a little different, I created software that allows me to put all my autoresponder form codes in one database and have my squeeze pages on any domain. If I change the form code in the database, it automatically changes on my squeeze page.

      So all my autoresponder form codes are in one spot and it also has the path to each squeeze page listed so I know in just seconds where any squeeze page I have is at.

      I have one site that has over 100 squeeze pages on it. It is a membership site called ReadySqueeze that allows members to connect their autoresponders to each squeeze page they want to use.

      So, what you are saying is that if you landed on a squeeze page who's domain name was ReadySqueeze.com you leave the site screaming like little girls. I don't think you would.

      I hope this has been helpful,

        Thanks everyone for your comments....it means a lot to me. I'm assuming I got the GREEN light on my squeeze pages. I'm glad I'm thinking right...at least for now.

        Thanks!!

    I think you have a good idea but you need to select a domain names which suits every product.

      "having a domain name that is generic or completely unrelated to the webpage I'm on, yes, I would leave very quickly." or "select a domain names which suits every product."? WHAT?!?!?

      Google? did that have anything to do with web search?
      Target? Does that have anything to do with shoes or cds or garden tools?
      Old Navy? does that really have anything to do with clothes?
      Levis? Nope not even close to meaning anything near pants
      Tiger Direct? no electronics or computers there
      Tumblr? don't see it there either

      Do I need to list more? Its called BRANDING people. And if you have multiple products on a page you can tie it all in with BRANDING.

      FAITH IN BRAND = MORE SALES
      The last I checked we discuss "Internet Marketing" This would be marketing 101 in my book. Those statements were just plain silly.
