Step 3: Spread these links around and start to engage

Here are some tips to get you started on making generating affiliate fees:

  • Use the existing content from your website and social media that relates to Norway and update it with relevant affiliate links. 
  • Be careful to only link to relevant content and that the links are specific to the particular content that you are linking from. As an example, if you have an article about how to experience Iceland by car, link to the self-drive itineraries
  • If you have a blog on Norway Travel Guide, make sure to answer the questions users send you to your blog. Our numbers show that the quicker you answer, the more likely you are to generate sales with your answers.
  • Be specific. Most users are not as familiar with Norway as you are. If they have questions about their itineraries, you can give them a few specific tours or packages for them to consider. If the products fit them well, they are more likely to make a booking. For example, if they are planning on visiting Oslo, you could use affiliate links to direct them to a relevant article on Oslo as well as tours that depart from Oslo. If you know that they are coming in summer, you could be even more specific and direct them to a summer vacation package to Oslo
  • Be engaging, friendly and helpful. Most of the potential travelers that will contact you or read your articles, don’t have a clear idea of what they need. It is good to give them clear and popular recommendations. 

 

What our most successful affiliates all have in common is that they are obsessively focused on providing valuable information to their audience. In order to convert, you often need to do more throw links around.

By providing useful information and helpful recommendations, you will help customers to learn about Norway and how they can get the most out of their trip. By answering critical questions and addressing any uncertaincies, you will increase the conversion rate of your affiliate links. 

Once you start engaging with your audience, you will have a perfect venue to understand what kind of questions people are looking for answers to. This will provide you with some great ideas for content production. Being able to answer questions by directing them to material that is rich with your affiliate links, will make you more efficient and your earning potential will go up by orders of magnitude. 

Take some time to browse around our website and explore the selection tours and articles Norway Travel Guide has to offer. The more familiar you are with the marketplace, the easier it will be for you to communicate relevant and useful content and affiliate links to your audience. 

Step 4: Track your sales

By logging into your account, you will be able to monitor the traffic to your blog and track your sales:

  1. Click on your profile photo on the upper right corner of the front page. 

     
  2. When you click on you profile photo, a drop down box will appear. Click on the house.
