Making money with your website can be a difficult task sometimes. Even if you have a great product or service that you promote and are making sales with you still might not be optimizing your website earnings as much as you could be. Not to mention the trouble it can be to find the perfect affiliate relationship that can help you make great money from your website. Then there is the problem that a merchant might decide to drop their affiliate program or change their links and all of your hard work could be gone.
One of the ways to not worry about all of those issues is to use a service like VigLink. VigLink takes many of the headaches of affiliate marketing and makes them disappear and lets you focus on what you do best with your website, making great content!
VigLink works by automatically taking care of all of the affiliate links for you. If you write a product review on the latest web design book from Amazon, your link to Amazon.com is automatically converted into an affiliate link by VigLink. All you have to do is link the way you normally do in your article.
Not only can you just start linking to merchants normally but VigLink has affiliate relationships with a HUGE number of merchants. So all of the links to those other stores that you created in the past or will in the future will become affiliate links as well. You can write posts about the latest BBQ you just bought from Home Depot or the latest movie you bought on iTunes and those links will also be turned into affiliate automatically by VigLink.
VigLink opens the door for your website to be able to concentrate on your content instead of worrying about if your links will break because your merchant dropped their program. The beautiful part is VigLink does not charge an upfront fee for you to use the service, but they do take a 25% cut of the commissions that you make in sales. That might sound like a lot but because they have better commission rates with many merchants you might not even notice the amount they take.
VigLink also gives you the ability to test out new merchants without having to join up for the program yourself. You can try them through VigLink and see if your are able to make some sales. If things go well then you can apply to the merchants affiliate program directly if you want to. A much better way to experiment in different niches.
I have been using VigLink here on Free Favicon for a little while now and have been please with the results. The site does not make much money to begin with but since VigLink has been installed the site has been able to double the monthly income. If you are interested in affiliate marketing I would encourage you to check out VigLink and see if it works for your website.
