A note from Jesse Lakes, CEO and co-founder of Geniuslink.
Have you ever wanted to offer buying options in addition to Amazon? What held you back? Not wanting to litter your website, YouTube description or tweet with multiple buy buttons or links to the same product? Maybe you didn’t have the space, or time, for adding more than one link?
Does 100% of your audience shop exclusively at Amazon? The answer is most likely “no”. Shopping from your preferred store will always trump your desire for your favorite influencers to cleanly monetize your purchase. Read More

You’ve built your site and it looks great. You’ve already added your affiliate products or you’re drawing them in from a product feed or widget. You’ve even built some links, but for some reason, you just can’t get any love from Google.

As an affiliate marketer, driving traffic to your blog is essential to achieving your monetary goals. There is endless advice out there on how to do this and often times it involves a multitude of combined efforts to create a larger picture of affiliate success.
