Earning commissions from around the world, with the numerous international Amazon affiliate programs, can sometimes seem like the easy part. It’s the process of actually getting those commission payments into your own bank account that can often become the real challenge! Amazon’s international Associates programs sometimes pay out commissions by mailing a local currency paper check but often they will only direct deposit to a regional bank which leaves your commissions stuck.
After having faced this challenge in its various forms and trying multiple solutions for nearly a decade we are super excited to have watched Payoneer expand into the nearly perfect solution for affiliate marketers to collect their commissions from most any currency or place in the world and then have that money seamlessly deposited into their local bank account no matter where in the world that that might be.
As an affiliate marketer, being successful often comes down to playing a numbers game. Checking reports, comparing results, and refocusing your efforts to drive up your click-through rate (CTR) and earnings per click (EPC). That’s why it’s often so important to make sure you’re getting as much data as you can to drive your decisions and measure your success. Today, the data points that you can capture seem unlimited, but did you know that you can take things a step further and also curate data points from the clicks on a link?
We came across this article by Coach Bru on National High Five Day. High-fives are staples in the Geniuslink office, so when we saw this, we couldn’t help but ask Coach Bru if we could repost this piece on our blog. So, here’s to high-fives. May they be present and abundant, not just on National High Five Day, but every day.
Last month, we sat down with YouTuber and entrepreneur, Kraig Adams to talk about best monetization and growth practices on the video-sharing platform, along with how he got started in the first place, what he’s learned and where he’s headed.
At Geniuslink, we finally have an employee with an awesome voice for video – our Master of Customer Success Andy. He also has a great face for video, but we’re saving that for later.
So, Andy has started to create some videos to show you how to better use Geniuslink. Our first one shows you how to use our software to build Amazon Associates affiliate links that work globally! Get an overview of our Link Creator tool, and learn how little of the Amazon Product URL you actually need to use.
When you’re done watching, we’d love to hear what you think. In particular, what other topics should we make videos about?
This Ultimate Guide on how to grow and monetize your YouTube channel was created through a series of interviews with inspiring YouTubers. Thank you Kraig, Michelle, Daniel, Rory, Justin and Ryan for participating. You’re awesome.
Every minute, more than 300 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube. Since 2005, YouTube has been a place to create, upload and share. In the opinions of many, it was the first platform that allowed for people to connect in a more interpersonal way through a more interpersonal medium no matter which corner of the world they were uploading from. Today, the platform has over one-billion users and is ranked second in the Alexa Top 50 List of Global Sites.
With almost 5 billion videos being watched on YouTube every single day, it has become a major source of income for many through affiliate marketing, AdSense, and sponsorships. Now more than ever YouTube creators are running their channels strategically and optimizing them for ideal success. With over 20,000 partners around the world and hundreds of them making six figures a year (and that’s a 2011 number) on the platform, many YouTubers may wonder where to start when it comes to monetizing their channel.
You’ve just had an awesome month. You’ve been putting in the hours, your clicks keep growing and you hit a new record for the most affiliate commissions in a month! Life is feeling pretty good and you feel like you’re really starting getting the hang of this Amazon affiliate thing!
Then it happens. What appears to be a regular email (maybe to congratulate you?), ends up being the exact opposite:
“Unfortunately most links are static [meaning it will always go to the same end-destination]. They have not evolved the same way web pages have over the last 20 years,” said Geniuslink CEO, Jesse Lakes in a recent interview with KJ Waters and Suzanne Kelman on the Blondie and the Brit Podcast.
Over the past few years, we have invested heavily in developing awesome new features. Features like the ability to place remarketing pixels in your links, A/B testing, UTM support, language-based targeting, a reporting engine and Choice Pages (which we’re currently working hard to level up). However, only a small percentage of our clients were able to benefit from these, as they were merely available in our Plus and Power plans. We felt like that was a waste. Read More
