People are habitual of saving money. Most of the people look for a dedicated discount before purchasing a WordPress theme, hosting or any other services online. If you can give them a discount on something they desperately want, your commissions will go sky high.
In this post, we have a cool WordPress plugin today which will help you to make coupons with ease and in this post, I will show you how to do that because it may be confusing for beginners.
Without further delay let me show you the process.
Step 1 : Install The Affiliate Coupons Plugin
This plugin works like a charm for making any kind of coupon in WordPress. Simple and flexible, the affiliate coupons plugin is a lightweight plugin and doesn’t affect the site loading speed at all. go ahead, and install this plugin.
Step 2 : Creating A Vendor
For creating a vendor, you need to have three things –
- An Affiliate link
- An Image or logo of the product/service you want to promote
- A Coupon Code ( more on this later )
Once you have activated the plugin, go the affiliate coupons plugin panel and click on vendors menu and click on add new button at the top left corner. The new screen will open representing the typical WordPress editor. Scroll down a little bit and you will see the vendor type custom fields.
Enter the product name in the name field, and make sure you add an image. below the image field, enter the affiliated link of the product you want to promote and don’t forget to write a clear description. Make sure your affiliate link is cloaked and nofollow by default.
Step 3 : Creating A Coupon
Now that you have successfully created a vendor, you can easily create a coupon in a minute. In your affiliate coupons plugin panel, click on the add coupon button to create a new promotion coupon.
After scrolling a little bit down you can sett the custom fields for vendor, name, and description. If you are satisfied with the details you have entered in the vendor settings, skip everything and select the name of the vendor you just created from the dropdown list. Check for any errors and Hit the publish button.
Viola! your coupon has been created. However, the coupon isn’t live on your blog. we will have to do this manually. Follow the next step
Step 4 : Go Live With The Coupons
Go to the widgets option through your appearance settings and find the Affiliate Coupons Sidebar widget. Click on the widget and select the name of the coupon you want to show to your visitors and click on the save button. That’s it. Now your visitors can see and it’s live on your blog.
On the right side of the screen, you can see shortcodes availabe for every coupon you have created. you can use this shortcode to place your affiliate coupons anywhere you want.
You can also use the Widgets Options plugin to control where your coupons will be shown or you can use Advanced Ads plugin to display the coupons between the posts, after the posts and so on.
The whole procedure was quite easy and quick. Make sure your coupon is applaeing by using context words which are proven to increase click through rates.
This plugin makes it very easy to make coupons and you don’t have to depend on any CSS customization. There is one more plugin which does the same work is WPCoupons.
Coupon widgets and templates will increase the clicks and attraction on your affiliate links while giving you more opportunities to earn commisions with fewer efforts.
incase you don’t have any coupons to promote, you can reach out to your merchant or any other high authority affiliate to build a partnership where you both can earn a handsome share of money with equal efforts.
