There is no time to waste in Q4. The absolute fastest way to grab an affiliate link, including ones that are deep-linked to a product page, is through the Bookmarklet.

Turn the average blog post into a shoppable e-commerce page. You can easily curate your own gift guides or shopping lists using the Make-a-page tool. Choose from two different layouts (examples below) and easily customize the look and feel of the “page view” option to fit your site’s design.

People love to read content from bloggers and Affiliates because we get a closer, more personal look at a topic, product or service. Video blogging brings us even closer to the source and makes the connection that much more personal. You can use this to your advantage as an Affiliate because this new level of closeness also helps customers convert.
A great way to repurpose old content is to make a video promo for your top converting posts. This gives you fresh way to present older or existing content.
If you're up for the challenge of creating new content and want to incorporate video, we have something for you too! Our own video tool allows you to create and generate your own video blog or product review and link it to multiple different Merchants throughout the video through the use of cue points.
It's never too late to join new and promote new Merchant programs. In fact, new Merchants join the Network on a daily basis.

Take a spin around all the tabs within the Merchant Search page. We have over 4,000 Merchants active on the Network, so it would take you a long time to browse through all the programs. You can toggle a variety of criteria on and off to target the right Merchant partner.
Two features to look for:
- Auto Deposit: Prevent disruption in your Affiliate links by focusing on Merchants with Auto-Deposit set up. If a Merchant opts to do manual, pay-as-you-go deposits they can unknowingly run out of funds overnight, on the weekends or at off hours and their account will go temporarily offline. Any amount of offline time can translate to missed opportunity to earn!
- Auto-Approval - you won't have to wait for your application to be reviewed in the Merchant's queue! Apply and start promoting immediately.
- Has Bonus Campaign: Merchants often offer sign up incentives or bonus opportunities for new Affiliates. This could be a temporary bump in commission (receive double your commission for your first month), a performance-based reward (drive 3 sales within 30 days of joining) or anything else they can dream up!
