What Are Cookies and Why Are They Important?

 
Affiliate links that track the purchase path of a consumer in the Affiliate Marketing game are essential. And in order to track the purchase path, they contain what's called a tracking cookie.
 
By definition: A tracking cookie is a sample of text dropped onto a browser while viewing a website. This text collects data from a user such as their activity on a website, browsing history, geographic location, purchase trends, and more.
 
The problem is, they are not fool-proof or flawless. And as of lately, they have been criticized for being intrusive in the amount of data they collect. By law, you now have to acquire consent from users in order to track their data. To make sure your website is compliant, you can get a free website scan from CookiePro for a detailed report of tracking cookies found on your website. Then, tailor a cookie banner to capture consent before tracking cookies are dropped.

5 Lessons Before Finding Your Next Affiliate Partner

This blog contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission in exchange for your product or service purchase after clicking one of my links--don't worry, there is no extra cost to you.
 
Often times, we get so roped in to shiny object syndrome that we see the benefits of Affiliate Marketing (which are extensive, I must add) and we dismiss the actual pre-work that should go into forming successful partnerships.
 
It's important that you are aware that there is a little bit of due diligence that must be performed before you go solidifying any partnership.
 
In this world of the oh-so-valuable free social media platforms we have access to, poaching affiliate partners via Instagram DMs or even targeted Facebook ads is so common. And it's tempting to accept every offer that comes your way, even for me. But, I know better than to take the bait right away. That is, before fully evaluating the partnership.
 
So if you are currently engaging in affiliate...

Top Niche Industries to Form Affiliate Partnerships With in 2022

What is an affiliate partnership?

By definition, a partnership is a formal arrangement by two or more parties to manage and operate a business and share its profits.
 
And I think those last three words are key, especially when it comes to affiliate partnerships. You share its profits.
 
Essentially, you agree to promote a big brand's (or merchant's) product or service and in exchange, they pay you a commission of each sale that you refer. That is an affiliate partnership.
 
So as an affiliate, you have all of the benefits of an entrepreneur or business owner, except that you don't have to deal with the behind-the-scenes operations such as customer service, shipping, or inventory management. It's truly a logistically genius idea.

Regardless of what you may have heard, it is a legitimate source of income and can be done with integrity.
 
And as a business owner, you can further serve your audience without changing up your current business plan and goals.
 
Affiliate marketing is not only a way for you to sell products or services without the hassle of...
