The RetroSupply Affiliate Program can help you make extra cash every month. Our affiliate software (Refersion) makes it easy to share custom affiliate URL's on your website, Instagram, or other platforms.
In this article, you'll learn the best practices for making sales as a RetroSupply affiliate.
Here are some things that are helpful to know before you start your affiliate promotions.
Even for the best product the conversion rate is around 5-7%. That means in order to make money you want to put your affiliate links in the places you get the most traffic.
Here's some common places successful affiliates place links:
The highest leverage way we've found so far to generate sales is by using Instagram Story Highlights. Your Instagram Story Highlight is at the top of your profile and gets a lot of traffic (which means a better chance of getting an affiliate sale).
If you just share products randomly it ends up feeling like a commercial and no one will buy. The best way to sell products is to use them in your work.
Show your audience the successful results you've achieved in your own work. When your audience is excited by your results they will be excited to buy a product.
For example, check out this post from Brad Woodard of Brave the Woods. Here he's used our Mid-Century Procreate Brushes in some illustration work he's done.
The illustrations look great and when he mentions he used our brushes it's only natural that his viewers will want to grab the same brushes he's using.
Some affiliates will make one or two attempts at making an affiliate sale. Then when they don't see results they give up. This is a huge bummer. Often times they're just a few more tries away from making hundreds or thousands of dollars a month.
Being an affiliate is like anything else. You'll have to try different stuff before you see results.
Don't give up after one or two attempts. Try different stuff. Make it a habit to share RetroSupply products with your affiliate link when it makes sense. Eventually, you'll find your unique style that converts to sales.
For example, Scotty Russell tried sharing one of our bundles in his Perspective Collective newsletter. This generated him a significant amount of sales by just sending one email to his list.
Don't have a newsletter? No worries. The point is to experiment with different ideas. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
These are just a few suggestions. Affiliates come up with tons of unique ways to promote products, make extra cash, and look like heroes to their followers by hooking them up.
