How to design effective affiliate marketing creatives
Creatives are an important part of affiliate marketing. The success of any ad campaign directly depends on their quality. Today we’ll talk about how to design truly effective creatives.
Get to know your target audience
The key point when preparing any sort of campaign. Who is your target audience? What gender? Age? What are their insecurities, problems, interests?
The more detailed answers you find to these and other questions, the more likely you are to succeed in affiliate marketing. Just don’t make the mistake of aiming the campaign at yourself, so to speak — approaches that might interest a webmaster may flop completely with your audience.
You can collect information about your target audience on thematic forums, social media communities and on other websites where these people hang out.
Decide on advertising sites
Obviously, you need to promote your offer in places where your target audience will see it. That’s why you need to identify the websites that these people visit the most. Here you can turn for help to the results of numerous studies.
Write a list of your product’s advantages and come up with a slogan
It’s best to describe the strengths of the offer using short phrases that are as clear as possible. Numbers also work great.
The aim of the slogan is to create a holistic image of a product or service and show its uniqueness. For example, free shipping when ordering at least one pack.
Texts, images or videos for advertising
You should write ad text based on the list of product advantages you compiled, as well as on the insecurities of the audience. Properly combining these two will help you make a pretty penny.
Images or videos should accurately represent whatever is being promoted and be clear enough even without words.
Keep in mind that online users take 1-2 seconds to decide whether they find offer shown to them interesting or not. The goal of the creative is to grab their attention and convince them they need this product.
And, of course, tests. You need to track all the creatives at the starting phase and analyze all the data related to the audience’s response to the former. Then optimize – leave only the ones that have a large conversion rate. May all your creatives be amazing and all your ad campaigns mega profitable.
