There are multitudes of different social media platforms available at anyone’s disposal, ranging from the standard Twitter account to the niche deviantart. But, especially in tweets, who has the space for a big, long product link? One of the tools at the disposal of any Skimlink user is the URL shortener which can help you continue your message across many social media platforms.

Let them Search

Other than affiliate links, there are other ways to earn commissions on the sales you influence. Notably, Skimlinks has “Search Widgets,” which can effectively increase your potential for commission. Search Widgets, like the two we have from eBay and Amazon (two of the world’s biggest retailers) allow you to profit any time that a member of your audience uses the search widget and makes a purchase through the retailer associated with the widget.

Looking Back

If you have already been using affiliate marketing before Skimlinks, good for you! If you’ve been using Amazon affiliate links, we understand that you may not want Skimlinks to place our links over Amazon affiliate links in your content with Skimlinks. We provide an Amazon Overwrite, which allows you to activate or de-activate our Amazon overwrite capabilities; (SPOILER ALERT : Amazon is one of our Preferred Partners with whom we’ve negotiated higher commissions, so you just may make higher commissions with the overwrite ON)!

Get In The Know

One of best benefits of using Skimlinks is the ability to view reports, showing you exactly what is working and what isn’t using the Reporting API. This tool on Skimlinks is one of the most fundamental ways to monitor your progress as a monetized blogger. For example, the Reporting API lets you see the value of your commission and order, plus whether its active or not. This helps you figure which links are getting clicked, and which ones aren’t seeing as much traffic, which can help you start targeting those particular merchants or products. Our publisher interface also has great reporting tools and they’re getting better all the time.

Skimlinks may be the right tool for some, but others may prefer the more intuitive Skimwords. Skimwords technology has the unique ability to scan for specific product references, and then geo-targets and links the buyer to the most relevant retailer of that particular product. So, even if you forget to link, Skimwords can still find and affiliate product references- if you have it activated! You can activate Skimwords in your Publisher Interface.

Imagine it

Link Together

Be sure that whenever you mention a product on your blog or website, you link to a retailer or shop where you can buy it. Skimlinks works with links so, when you can, try and make sure that the link you use goes straight to the product you’re mentioning, and not the site’s homepage.

Speak Our Language

Even if your site has been approved for Skimlinks, if you don’t install the code, it’s impossible for us to change your links into affiliate links. Therefore, even before you start posting links, make sure that the code is installed in your site’s footer. Just go to Setup & Settings in your Publisher Interface and click on installation! Once you’ve done this, it becomes possible for you to start earning commissions!
