Increase Your Affiliate Website’s Conversion Rates: 4 Ways

Are you trying to increase your affiliate website’s conversion rates?

If you own an affiliate marketing business, you’ll agree that affiliate marketing is highly competitive. The average affiliate marketer has to compete with other affiliates. Not only that, but the search engines, and even the affiliate networks whose products they’re promoting. 

But that’s not all. Even after managing to drive traffic to their websites, many affiliates struggle with getting those visitors to follow their recommendations and buy the products they’re promoting. If you’re struggling with poor conversion rates on your affiliate websites, then the tips in this article will help you.

Determine Your Products’ Appeal

If you’re promoting a dud product, with poor landing pages, calls-to-action, slow loading websites, and disliked products, you’re not likely to get a decent conversion rate. 

After buyers click through from your website, they want to visit a website that completely allays their fears, increases their trust, and looks like a solid business. A website without all of those elements will not convert, regardless of how targeted, your traffic is. Therefore, a great website is a must for affiliate marketing!

So, make sure that you’ve chosen a good product to promote on your website. 

Landing Pages to Increase Your Affiliate Website’s Conversion Rates

How targeted are your landing pages? Do they directly speak to the visitor or are they a generic page? Ensure that you have a special landing page for the specific demography or personal that you’re targeting in your ad campaigns. 

have a landing page for your affiliate product

For example, if you’re promoting a pre-workout supplement that can be used by both males and females, your ad campaigns should target both sexes separately. And when they arrive at your affiliate site, each one should land on a page that’s tailored to them. 

Keyword Campaigns

Avoid making rookie keyword mistakes. Target keywords should be tightly grouped together, with the most relevant keywords placed in the same groups. 

For example, if your campaign is about how to avoid student debt, the keywords in this group should include “avoid student debt”, “avoid student loans”, “prevent student loans”, “get financial aid”, or “win scholarships with low credit scores”. 

The idea is to make all your relevant keywords grouped together so that you’ll get better conversions from your ad campaigns.

Optimize Your Website’s Copy

Your affiliate website’s copy arguably plays the biggest role in driving your conversion rate. Ensure that your website content is written for your target audience. Your affiliate site should demonstrate topical authority that compels readers to trust it and you. 

If you’re targeting a female audience, make sure that your content speaks to a female audience. Most importantly, the writing needs to sound like it’s coming from a female writer. This is important because people can tell when a man is writing for a female audience and vice versa. 

Also, avoid stuffing your content with too many keywords. And when you do use your keywords, use those with high buyer intent –think long-tail keywords. They may have less search volume, but they convert better.

And remember to consistently sprinkle strong call-to-action in the body of your content. Of course, it goes without saying that these have to be done correctly. Otherwise, it will interfere with the visitor’s reading experience on the website.

Wrapping Up on How to Increase Your Website’s Conversion Rates 

Affiliate marketing is a money maker when done right.  It’s not enough to just run ads or optimize for the search engines.

You will have to prove your product’s solution to people’s problems.  And then gain their trust to purchase from you. It won’t happen overnight, it will take time. 

If your website is neither compelling nor trustworthy, you won’t enjoy great conversion rates.

    Lisa, wonderful points. Yes, next to driving traffic, increasing the conversion rate plays a major role in any success of blogs. Keyword grouping is the one that I was doing wrong. I just tweeted your sentence “The idea is to make all your relevant keywords grouped together. #affiliatemarketing” on our page so our visitors will know this too. And again, as you said, gaining the trust of our visitors determines whether they will make their purchase decision based on our recommendation. I enjoyed reading this article.

      Hi John, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. What were you doing with your keyword grouping John? Thanks for sharing on Twitter 🙂 I do use products I love and use for my affiliates. Otherwise, I could not really write about them with any knowledge. Make it a great day John.

  • Hi Lisa,

    All are good tips. Increasing blog exposure significantly definitely helps to boost your conversions organically from the simple aspect of gaining massive exposure. For odd reasons, bloggers and affiliate marketers play small, drive a little traffic then try like heck to boost conversions to the highest rate possible with a few hits. The top earners in any niche gain titanic exposure by creating and connecting while fine-tuning conversions in the process. Of course, clarity wins. Following your tips sets a strong foundation for boosting conversions then keep increasing your visibility.

    Rocking post.
