So you're all signed up, you've got your affiliate link, now what? Well, here are a few hints & tips on how to get the most out of being part of Team Green!
The most important thing to remember is that it’s all about the people using your affiliate link. Your main aim is to get as many people as possible clicking on that link. Once they’ve clicked they will get a 30-day cookie attached which means if they buy anything within that time frame you will earn commision for that sale.
Post your link everywhere that you can – social media, forums, blogs. However, read the rules for posting in each space carefully and DON’T BE SPAMMY!
When promoting don’t just share links for the sake of it. Find titles and offers that relate to the content you’re making and the interests of yourself and your followers. Tell your audience that using the link supports your content. After all, it totally does. Use it as an aside to other feature content. If you’re posting on social media, use images wherever possible. A well-chosen image, meme, or gif will attract more interest and improve your click rates. Huzzah!
You can edit your affiliate link so that it sends users to more specific pages (e.g. a product page of a particular game) on Green Man Gaming, rather than just the homepage. This is also called ‘Deep Linking’.
Here’s how you do it:
Attach the highlighted part to the URL of the Green Man Gaming game you want to deep link to.
Double check that the link works properly and you will be good to go!
