Budoten Affiliate-Programme

Techniques for Improving Merchandising

Use the Budoten brand in your Links

Many sites find that, since their visitors’ trust the Budoten name, adding the brand to their links will increase the number of click-throughs or improve their conversion rate. Our services do not only include one of the most comprehensive supplies in Germany, but a great customer service as well. Our long term experiences with the old partner program we are using now at Budoten too.

Make your links prominent

Have product links at the top of every page. This makes it so customers don't have to scroll to buy. You might want to place links at the top and bottom of your pages, ensuring that an opportunity to buy is always visible to the customer. You can change the size or colour of your link as well, or even animate it, to draw more attention. Experimenting with text links can also yield results, e.g., using boldface or different text colours. Note that Budoten successfully uses the technique of placing a buy box prominently in the top-right corner of every product detail.

How it could look like:

Decide on your own, which links might be best suitable for your website:

  • Use Product Links for pages with pages with specific content. For instance, if you are reviewing a product, provide a direct link to that product in the body of your review. You can have several links on a single page, but make sure they work together and address different needs.
  • Always strive to describe your presentation interesting and exact - thus your visitors will come back more often to look for the most recent presentations.
  • Link to our home page. This is the most easy and fastest way to create a link to Budoten. You can choose from our library one of the Budoten logo and place it at on your website. Give it a place at your very first page.
  • Use Search Box Links or links to the Budoten home page for pages with general content. Some of our best-converting messages are small enough so they won't overwhelm your pages, and appeal to your visitors who might want to shop, but aren't sure of exactly what they want to buy.
  • Use the Budoten quick link for linking to our site. Thus giving your visitors the opportunity to get a summary of our supply by using a specific keyword.
