I'm a long time member here but I don't post often. However I was setting up a website yesterday and considering how to add some bonuses on to an affiliate offer I'm proposing to my list.
I know that affiliates often add bonuses for people buying through their link which got me wondering - how does the affiliate know which of their list members became a buyer?
Maybe I missed that in affiliate school. Regardless, I thought of an excellent way for both marketers and their affiliates to benefit (increase their positioning) from affiliate sales and was wondering how I would verify that it's a worthy idea.
My first thought is "test it" but I don't have products of my own or lots of traffic at this point. Is there another way?
Thanks for any help.
