Deep Linking to Category or Product Pages


“Sending prospects to just the right web page eliminates 25% of all lost sales, resulting in higher commission.” – Mick Kitor


Deep linking has been proven to increase Affiliate sales as the viewer is directed to a specific page on a Merchant website that will provide all of the necessary information to convert to a sale. Create a deep link using the Custom Link tool by providing a URL leading customers to an exact page other than the homepage.



As the primary information provider on a topic, create links that will add substance and shape the readers click-path to the most relevant content or products. Link to a destination with a low-bounce rate, such as category pages, or direct the reader to a specific product page as to increase the conversion rate!

TIP: Each Affiliate’s strategy will differ depending on the audience and topic, although one method should be universal for increased engagement – reference relevant articles from YOUR website! Decrease the exit rate and expose Affiliates to even more content.

Twitter Tip: Use the ShareASale License Plate Link option to create a shortened URL! In addition, the extra character space allows your followers to retweet without eliminating any text.
