With the holidays fast approaching now is the perfect time to ramp up your affiliate sales for all things gift related. Almost everyone will be interested in some kind of gift for someone over the holidays so no matter what niches you are involved in there will be gifts you could suggest. If you can’t think of any just ask us and we can offer you suggestions from among our gifts and beyond.
We hope you will consider joining our gift affiliate programs paying a generous 12% through ShareASale or 20% through our Yahoo! Store Tracking links.

If you are in a wedding related niche you can even get an instant Wedding Store from Bridaluxe by simply adding a line of code to your existing site.
Whether you make a comfortable living through affiliate programs or you have never made a single dime we want to make it simple for you and assist you in increasing your income. Starting today we are doing a countdown of our top selling gifts between November 1 and December 24, 2008 starting with number 99 and posting several a day until we get to the number 1 most popular gift of 2008.
Not only are these same gifts likely to be most popular this year, thanks to the magic of the Zemanta reblog feature you can easily copy all or part of any of the posts from this series, change or add to them any way you wish, and have instant content for your own blog. We have suggested to Zemanta that they add a function that automatically changes the affiliate links for you; however, for now do be sure to edit the affiliate link so you get credit for any sales you generate.
There are three major challenges to making money with affiliate products:
- Deciding what products to promote from merchants that can convert your visitors to buyers
- Creating content around those products
- Getting traffic to your content
Our Internet Strategist GrowMap reviewed our store and explained why our gift affiliate program converts. We are providing product related content you can use. And lastly @GrowMap will send your site traffic! She is active online almost every day, has 10,362+ followers at Twitter and is active at StumbleUpon, FriendFeed, Facebook and Delicious and expanding to Reddit and elsewhere.
Lots of traffic is important because “average” conversion rates are only 1-2% at best. That means you need 50-100 visitors to generate each sale. For more details read Success is a Numbers Game. The more visitors you get – and GrowMap CAN send you visitors – the more new readers, subscribers and potential sales you will have.
