If you operate a modern and functional e-commerce store where you sell a wide range of products at competitive prices, you’ve likely encountered a common challenge: low website visibility and consequently, low sales. In essence, you have a fantastic store hidden away on a quiet street. What you need can be summarized in a single word: visibility.
Imagine third-party entities promoting your products on their websites, offering them greater exposure. This could translate into increased visits and a substantial boost in sales, all without much effort on your part, and in exchange for a commission – a win-win situation!
CREATE AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM TO BOOST YOUR VISIBILITY AND EARN MORE, BOTH FOR YOU AND YOUR AFFILIATES
If you’re searching for a way to market your products and boost your sales numbers but have run out of ideas or exhausted your advertising options, consider having individuals or bloggers promote your products on their websites. When they help you sell products and receive a commission for each sale, you can be confident they’ll actively promote your offerings. Setting up an affiliate program has never been easier, thanks to YITH WooCommerce Affiliates, which automates the entire process.
Many affiliate programs only pay commissions if customers purchase one or more of your products immediately after clicking on an affiliate’s link. This approach risks rendering the entire program ineffective.
With YITH WooCommerce Affiliates, you won’t encounter this problem. The plugin allows you to determine how long affiliates will continue to receive commissions from customers who arrive via their links. Administrators have full control over their affiliates, thanks to detailed click reports generated for each link. This gives you the option to offer commissions manually or set up an automated payment system.
You can even establish different commission rates based on the product and user, enabling you to create a customized, automated affiliate program that can significantly boost your sales.
