1. Place a banner on your web site

By using one of our banner images, users can easily click through to the site. Different formats may suit the layout of your page(s). Consider placing banners in different formats and on different pages, then use the statistics to identify which are working best for you. Vary or rotate the type and position of banners so that users don't become overly familiar. Experiment with different banners, text links, or reviews. Keep these that bring good results, and change the others. Sometimes only change of few words or color of link can mean difference.

2. eMail Newsletter

Consider a regular spot in your newsletters, perhaps reviewing a product or highlighting event-specific products. If you own an email list of members or other people who have opted in to receive email offers from you, send them an email telling them about our website, and feel free to use some text from our homepage in your email. Include your affiliate link at the end of the email. *NOTE - We do not tolerate spamming in any way.

3. eMail Signature

Include a line in your email signature with something along the lines of:
Don't forget, your class/club/association will benefit from purchases you make at The Yachting Studio and including a tracking link.

4. Product Reviews

Maybe highlight specific products on your web site that are particularly relevant with an image and comment. From our experience, you will get the best results from writing your own product reviews, even if it's short. You don't have to be a good writer. Just write what you really think about the product. When you publish your product review, use your general affiliate link to send the user to our website.

You will have much better conversion if you can put your visitors into pre-sold mood before sending them to our site. This means that you build interest in a product and the visitor decides to potentially buy it after he reads your product review.

Choose from various types of product descriptions, download and adjust them to fit in your site. Experiment with short or long, try to find perfect combination with banners.

Try to think like a visitor, when he comes to your page with review or affiliate link, you should draw his attention, build curiosity or feeling that he might need this kind of solution.

5. Include in blogs

The links can also be included in blogs.

6. Bespoke Products

Products that we produce ourselves can be varied to produce special versions, such as to include a club or association logo. We produce products that can be configured as prizes for specific events or as "keepers" where cups have to be retained by the club or to provide something for all the crew.

7. Increase Site Traffic

Something you probably need to be doing anyway, but ensure that site content is updated regularly and that search engines crawl your site frequently.

8. Encourage Product Suggestions

We will add designs according to the availability of suitable images and as the creative urge strikes us. However, we are open to suggestions if a particular image or idea comes to one of your members.

We will be more than happy to help!

We look forward to welcoming you.
