Affiliate Cloaking. . . what IS it and are YOU using it is the question?

That's right, this question apply's to everyone who actively promotes other companys products and/or services as an affiliate or is considering it because you could be losing BIG BUCKS from your hard earned affiliate commissions because of those UGLY long affiliate URL's that scream out. . . “I'm An Affiliate" and scare your visitors and/or potential customers away.

People are very funny this way online when it comes to first impressions.

As an example, which would you rather do business with?

A business with a URL like. . .

http://www.corys-cbmall.com

OR. . .

(example: http://wetrack. it/eza/af. cgi?aid=xxxxx)

Now that I've planted that seed in your head lets move on to what ‘Affiliate Cloaking’ IS and how it will help convert more of your visitors into SALES!

'Affiliate Cloaking’ sounds pretty obvious doesn't it and it really is because all your doing is replacing that UGLY long affiliate URL with a nice cloaked(forwarded inside an invisible frame), professional Domain Name like the one I listed in the above example that remains ‘Sticky’.

What do I mean by ‘Sticky'?

I simply mean that the URL remains the Domain Name you chose once your visitor clicked on it and doesn't redirect back to the UGLY long affiliate URL you started with, giving YOU, the Affiliate, a professional look in the eyes of your visitors and/or potential customers.

Simply put, they wouldn't know if you were the Affiliate or the actual owner of that website.

How's all this possible?

I'll give you three words. . . “Advanced Domain Forwarding".

There are many services online that offer this. Simply go to Google and do a Google search.

Now, if your a serious Affiliate Marketer and/or are just starting out online with affiliate programs then this is something you'll definitely want to look into.

Not only will you look professional in the eyes of your visitors and/or potential customers you'll also be Safe- Guarding your hard earned affiliate commissions.

There you have it, “Affiliate Cloaking. . . What It IS And WHY You Should Be Using It If Your An Affiliate Marketer".

Remember, first impressions matter, especially when your doing business online.
