If you are interested in blogging, you must have come across bloggers who are earning thousand of dollars through affiliate marketing.
Affiliate Marketing has the potential to make you six figure income and help you quit your 9-5 job.
But, there’s one mistake most of the bloggers make while referring affiliate products.
And what’s that, you ask? To not mask the affiliate links.
Masking affiliate links mean to change the actual referral URL with a nice looking URL.
There are three primary advantages of masking affiliate links –
1. You can keep track of clicks.
2. Your affiliate links much cleaner and professional.
3. It increases the Click Through Rate (more on this below).
For example, if you are promoting an affiliate link of EverNote, then by default it will look like this
However, it is cluttered and doesn’t give a nice impression.
On the other hand, if the same link is masked as https://blogcharge.com/go/evernote/ then it gives a more personal touch and looks clean.
