As I have written and you have read over the past couple of weeks, artwork is one of the more challenging parts to Internet Marketing. Unfortunately after you have your designs in place, you must begin anew with artwork for your Affiliates.
While you may want to keep continuity with your ad campaign, you will have to change it up a bit to maintain interest in your products and to show a bit of professionalism. Not to mention that your affiliate artwork will come in all types of sizes and shapes. The more that you design the more options your Affiliates will have to display your products.
You will want to maintain all of your artwork with codes on your site. You can see examples of that here at Bloggers Market.com under the category of “Affiliates”. You will see a pretty good selection of artwork sizes along with the code already written. You will have to do the coding yourself. Google will really punish these Affiliate links if they are not written properly, so go ahead and code to best SEO practices and provide the code for your Affiliates to simply copy and paste.
The main idea here is to make sure that everything is done with best practices, while at the same time making it as easy as possible for your Affiliates to work with you.
And speaking of making it easy for your Affiliates to work with you, I’m going to go ahead here and mention Affiliate Payouts as this is one of the most critical parts of selling Affiliates on listing your products on their site. You have to have a good Shopping Cart that you can depend on, that will responsibly handle your payouts and refunds for you. E-Junkie and JVZoo are a couple of choices that you may want to take a look at. There are others of course, so do your due diligence here.
