Have you found the best Affiliate link management WordPress plugin that also helps you increase your sales?
The majority of bloggers & newbie affiliate marketers are unable to make huge with Affiliate marketing due to lack of optimization.
The optimization of an affiliate link is easy when you are using the right tool.
Today I will let you know about a free WordPress affiliate link management plugin called Thirstyaffiliates that comes with amazing add-ons to let you make more money from Affiliate marketing.
ThirstyAffiliate WordPress Plugin Review: The best solution for link management
The Thirstyaffiliate plugin is free & you can download it from the WordPress plugin repo here.
This Affiliate, link management plugin, comes highly equipped with features to increase your affiliate sales.
Along with that, there are many advanced features that are also available, which I have mentioned below. In this post, I’m reviewing this plugin & will also share some of the available valuable add-ons.
Once you have downloaded & installed the plugin, go to ThirstyAffiliate plugin settings.
This is where you will be doing the one-time setup of all significant features & after that your work of adding a link is pretty easy.
Go to Affiliate links> settings & start configuring the plugin. You can copy the settings as shown below image:
Once you have configured the general settings, click on Save all changes.
How to Add new affiliate link:
The plugin offers two ways to add affiliate links. You can either go to Affiliate links> Add new & cloak your affiliate link. Here is a screenshot for the same:
The second method which is adding affiliate links from the post editor section is more convenient & easy. Go to add new post & there you will have an icon to either search and add an existing cloaked affiliate link or you can cloak a new link.
How to Insert image banner for more affiliate sales: Extra feature
This is one feature that will make you ditch any other free Affiliate link Cloaker plugin you are using. We all know at times, good images give better CTR. Using ThirstyAffiliates, you can also add an image instead of a normal hyperlink. When you are cloaking a new link (See the add new affiliate link image above), you will also get an option to add an image.
Next time you can add a link as a hyperlink or as an image. I’m sure smart bloggers can imagine how effective a good banner ad would be for their affiliate sales.
After using this plugin, I feel so sorry that why I was using any other plugin for so long. Since this offers features that can easily increase affiliate sales. Anyways, it’s better late than never.
Apart from the above features, this plugin also supports shortcodes. I haven’t used this feature in detail, so can’t comment much on it. For now, let’s have a look at some of the notable add-ons available for this plugin. I suggest you get at least a few of the add-ons especially if you are using the Amazon affiliate program or any hosting affiliate program where you need to direct users to a special landing page based on their location.
ThirstyAffiliate Add-ons: Make more out of Affiliate Marketing
At the time of writing this review post, they have about 6 add-ons that you can buy in a bundle or separately. I’m sharing information about a few of those add-ons which made me switch my existing WordPress affiliate plugin to this one.
CSV Importer addon:
This one you may or may not need, but for me it’s essential. Since I was using Gocodes plugin which is now gone, moving all my affiliate links from the old plugin to the new was a big task. With CSV importer, moving all of my 200+ links was easy & within minutes, I moved away from my existing affiliate plugin to ThirstyAffiliates.
ThirstyAffiliates Geolocation Add-on
This one is need of the time as all popular web-hosting companies including Bluehost & HostGator now redirect users to country-specific URL. Because of this, many of us miss out on sales & we can’t do much about it. If you are using the Bluehost Affiliate program, I’m sure you must have noticed that a user clicking the link from India is redirected to the Indian Bluehost site. With the Geolocation add-on, the plugin will detect the user location & redirect them to the specific site of your choice. This is pretty useful for Amazon affiliates as well.
Amazon Add-on: WordPress Amazon affiliate plugin
This one is my favorite as this would ensure I earn more from the Amazon affiliate program.
Do you know when you add an Amazon affiliate link from U.S. store & users go to U.K. or Indian store, you don’t get the affiliate commission?
With the Azon addon, you can import the amazon affiliate link from the WordPress dashboard & it supports all major Amazon stores.
With the combination of the Geolocation add-on, your reader would be redirected to the store based on his country location.
In short, it makes it easy for you to add Amazon affiliate links & also to make more money from the Amazon affiliate program.
Also, look at AAWP WordPress plugin for the dedicated Amazon WordPress plugin.
Check this video to understand the Azon add-on feature:
There are more add-ons that are useful like Stats, Google Analytics integration & Auto-linker.
Here is the pricing for the different bundles:
In the upcoming series, I will share how to use specific add-ons of this plugin & moving your existing Affiliate links to ThirstyAffiliates.
