Best practices for capturing your audience

Placement of ads and links

The location of where you put an affiliate ad is important. Some ideas are:

  • Placing it at the top or top right hand side of a webpage where it’s most visible.

  • Placing it inside a relevant content piece, such as a blog post or a tutorial. Place it in the beginning of the post as a link, to the side of the post as a banner ad, and again at the end of the content piece.

  • On sites with various sections, target the affiliate ads based on the content, using filters for language, framework and platform. For example, on a PHP forum, use our product widget with the PHP filter.

  • Creating a dedicated page for our store widget, and linking to it from the site’s navigation.

Write-ups

Writing relevant content to specific products it the best way to attract relevant audience that would be interested in the products and services Binpress provides.

Some of our affiliates write their own content that have a niche focus. For example, Appbattleground focuses on how to create mobile apps. They mentioned us in two articles:

Sorin Nistor from iPDFdev was able to generate $475 from 81 visitors in 2 days. His site focuses on PDF development for iPhone and iPad, and has very high conversion for our PDF related products.
