Last week, I published an article about a set of keyword tools that I use to run my ppc campaigns and do blogging research.
I have built and released three different marketing tools over the past three years.
I spend thousands of dollars a year on various affiliate marketing tools.
Because the better your tools are, the more edge you have over your competition! The tools I have available allow me to do things better and more efficiently than my competition.
The ROI (return on investment) on a good affiliate marketing tool can be tremendous if you learn to use it properly to your advantage.
So, when I was introduced to affkit, which packages together all the “essential affiliate marketing tools” you need, I knew I had to have it.
Affkit is an awesome product that gives you access to a ton of different affiliate marketing tools.
The product has been around for a few years and I’ve been using it quite a bit since it’s original launch, but it was recently taken over by my buddy Oliver Kenyon and he is relaunching it with an awesome new interface and of course, new tools.
Oliver has done an amazing job of adding a ton of new value to affkit.
Affkit Affiliate Marketing Tools
They’ve categorized all the different tools available in affkit to these 5 categories:
- Landing Pages
My two favorites (and the ones I’ve been using the most) are Landing Pages and Mobile.
Oliver asked me to do a testimonial for affkit since I’ve been using it for so long and I was happy to do it. My testimonial is about the tool I’ve seen the highest ROI with so far, the Back Button Redirect.
How many times has someone hit your landing page and immediately clicked the back button? You may not have those statistics in front of you, but I can tell you the answer is a lot.
I implemented the back button redirect tool from affkit on a few of my affiliate landing pages as well as a few viral media sites I own and the results were incredible.
There were literally thousands of people a week who would hit my site or landing page and click the back button without performing my call-to-action. That’s not a huge surprise, but what was surprising is how many of them responded well to the back button redirect I put in place.
For example, on my viral media sites, when a user clicked the back button, I would redirect them to another random article on the site. This doubled my pageviews, which doubled my ad impressions, and helped increase my ad revenue.
On my affiliate landing pages, I would send the user directly to the advertiser’s landing page when they clicked the back button. My landing page wasn’t able to presell them, but by sending them directly to my affiliate link when they clicked the back button, I was able to increase my conversion rates and EPCs.
Now, not everyone is going to be a fan of the back button redirects. There is some conflict with whether you’re hurting the user experience. Personally, I have no issue with it and I’ve found it very effective in my marketing.
For those who do not like the back button redirect tool, there are 19 tools currently in the affkit arsenal.
A few others I have found very handy with my affiliate marketing campaigns are:
- Exit Intent Pop
- Geo Redirection
- Geo Location
- Urgency Timer
- Offer iFramer
The best part about all of these tools is that you do not need to know how to code to use them. Affkit provides you with all the code. You can just copy and paste it into your landing page.
Affkit has a ton more information and videos explaining why you need to become a member. I have been a member for years and continue to find benefit in their tools.
Take a look and let me know if you have any questions. Let’s make some money!
