Lots of webmasters are using free classifieds affiliate programs to tap new markets and give their visitors a reason to keep coming back. Whenever you give your prospects a reason to return to your website, you have additional opportunities to earn their trust…and their business.
For an insurance agency selling car insurance – give site visitors the opportunity to place ads to sell cars on your site. Use appropriate keywords for your market (“Free Corvette Ads”, “Hot Rod Classifieds,” “New Car Ads,” etc.). Search engines just love these types of links, and including these key words will undoubtedly improve your ranking for exactly the type of prospect you want to attract to your web pages. Greater visibility means better traffic. Site visitors provide free unique content that attracts car buyers to your page. Car buyers need car insurance. You sell car insurance. Give them a reason to buy from you.
Here’s something else. When your site guests post a free classified, they are presented with an offer to upgrade their free ad with enhancements (feature ads, color, italicized listing, etc). This sets their ad apart from the other ads and gains better exposure for them. Most classified ad affiliate programs will pay you a percentage (usually 10-25%) of the upgrade cost. You’ve just created another income stream for your web site.
By creating and incorporating a free classifieds affiliate program into your site, you create the ultimate win-win-win. You provide your guests with a free value-added benefit, you improve your rankings with the search engines by incorporating keyword backlinks into your site, you attract additional markets to expose to your product, you create an additional revenue stream as they upgrade their ads, and you give your prospects a reason to return to your site again and again.
