The Importance of Deep-Linking

One of the most effective affiliate strategies is to utilize deep-links. A deep-link is a hyperlink that leads to a specific page on a website other than the home page. For example, the generic Sigma Beauty link is http://www.sigmabeauty.com, and the deep-link for the E25 brush is http://www.sigmabeauty.com/Blending_E25_p/e25.htm.

We are going to show you how to use deep-links to improve your affiliate conversion rate and sales.

Generic links vs. Deep-links

Deep-links convert two times better than generic links! That means you can double your chance of generating a sale by simply using a deep-link instead of generic link. Studies show that problems associated with navigating a website can account for up to 25% of failed product purchases. When you bring your customers directly to the information they want, you are greatly increasing your chances of making a sale!

Creating Deep-links

It is very easy to create a deep-link leading to a specific product page using your affiliate link. Simply find the URL you would like to deep-link, and paste it into “Landing Page” on the Tracking Link Generator found on your account dashboard:
