Choosing the right affiliate programs is the first aspect for monetizing… Now that you have joined your desired affiliate programs your probably wondering where is the best place to place them on your blog..?
First of all as a rule of thumb, when visitors (unless regular visitors) visit you blog you have less than 6 seconds to convince them they have found what they are looking for, during this time most of the time spent is near the header so this is your prime affiliate program real estate. Any affiliate ads near your header in any placement of your blog will earn you the most..
“The 6 second affiliate marketing rule is an important tip to increase your earnings tenfold from blogging..!” —Timon Weller
You could just go for a sidebar placement similar to this blog, but there are other options as well, you could place a related affiliate program ad in your posts as well like in this post as another effective way.. Some people choose to add a affiliate banner to the right of the header as well which is very effective. What ever you decide, if in those 6 seconds the reader chooses to leave, but the affiliate ad catches there eye there is a chance that they could still click on it for a potential sale..
The 6 seconds rule applies to usually around 50% of all traffic so it is an effective boost to any website.. This tip, I learnt a few years ago pays off and works wonders, trust me.. enjoy...
