When a group divides into two groups.
It happens everywhere.
People choose their own sides.
They always want to stay on the right side.
Maybe, one day you would have to make such a decision…
This sounds misleading!
I'm not talking about college politics…
No. Why would I do that?
In fact, I'm talking about PPC advertising and Affiliate Marketing.
We bloggers get divided when some of us choose PPC model and others choose Affiliate Marketing to monetize the blogs.
Jolted you at the right time…
If you kept on thinking otherwise, this all won't make any sense to you.
I'm very much into Affiliate Marketing. In fact, I keep on learning it.
In the past, I have published an article about my mistakes in affiliate marketing.
You already know that this article is about Premium Affiliate Link Cloaking WordPress Plugins…
What if I would have written just two introductory lines and start mentioning the list of 5 plugins…
You won't be able to read this part:
Every visitor is a different person. Maybe, a reader lands on your blog, and looking for a solution, and finds your tutorial on that topic…
The reader reads your tutorial and finds out that the solution requires a certain product to buy… Once the reader moves the cursor on the image or text, the link which shows up look a little unprofessional.
Maybe, a long, coded, and dirty.
Your reader suddenly thinks these three things:
- Is it a legit product?
- Would there be a secured checkout?
- Should I trust this review?
Suddenly two different options come into the mind.
Should I go for it?
Should I ignore it?
The next part is the solution.
That's why we use link cloaking plugins.
It's a bit psychological thing.
You are promoting something you trust.
Make sure that you start using the product first before you promote.
Just like Kulwant did.
He tested the Long Tail Pro, found great results, and then decided to promote it.
Every successful affiliate marketer does that.
