As an affiliate marketer, you should always be making use of the latest tools that can help to improve your portal. Without these tools, you could be wasting both time and resources that could be better spent elsewhere. So, which tools are trending right now? Read on to hear about some of the tools that we think every affiliate marketer should try this month.
If you are using WordPress and aren’t too SEO savvy, you might want to look into downloading Yoast SEO. This plugin can be extremely useful as it not only allows you to easily input your SEO data but it also gives you the opportunity to check if you have properly optimised your content. It offers canonical link customisation, title tag and meta customisation and more. You can even download it for free!
Duplicate content can be a massive problem when it comes to creating an authoritative site that ranks well on Google. If you are creating a lot of content or outsourcing this, you need to make sure that every piece of content on your affiliate site is unique. So, we recommend trying out Duplichecker this month to check for any plagiarism. This will save you a lot of time.
Visitors to your affiliate site might not always be ready to buy so you need to make sure that you are finding a way to drive them back when they are. A good tool to help with this is Sumo which can help you to install email capture forms on your site. This way, you’ll build your email list and drive your traffic over time.
Have you ever considered adding ratings to your content? If your content is great then you shouldn’t be scared of poor ratings and you won’t be likely to receive any. We recommend trying out WP-PostRatings to add a rating system to your content. This will have a direct effect on your search rankings if you manage to secure a good average rating.
Image compression is very important right now, especially when you consider the impact that loading speeds are having on Google’s algorithm. So, we think that you should download a tool that can help you to compress your images and get your site back up to speed. TinyPNG is the perfect tool for this and it also comes with a WordPress plugin.
If you typically outsource your graphic creation then you could be wasting a lot of money. Tools like Canva are very easy to use and are free, as long as you aren’t trying to use the premium templates. We recommend that you spend some time playing around with Canva and create some graphics that you can use on your social channels. You might be surprised at how creative you can be.
