Automatic Forwarding to Another Website – How to Easily Set It Up in WordPress
If you set up your affiliate marketing business on the internet, you will eventually want to put in place automatic forwarding services to take care of all the leads that come in from various sources.
Let’s face it, when someone clicks a link or scans a QR code and lands on your website, they have probably already made a decision to purchase before arriving at your door. So you would want to make sure that they are automatically funneled into a buying mood without any interference from you.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where the wrong kind of ads can disrupt your marketing efforts and even damage your business. That is why it is important that you implement a robust campaign to ensure that your potential customers find you and your products valuable and helpful.
So how do you do that? You need a simple, yet highly effective tool that is used to send potential customers to another website when they visit your blog or online store. This tool is called automatic forwarding and it is super easy to set up in WordPress.
In this blog post, we will teach you how to easily implement automatic forwarding in your WordPress blog so you can effortlessly grow your affiliate sales and make money online.
Why Should You Use Automatic Forwarding?
If you have ever been an affiliate marketer, you will know just how much work goes into getting new customers and growing your affiliate sales. You have to build credibility, you have to create valuable content that is helpful to your audience and you have to drive traffic to your site. Once you establish yourself as an expert in your industry, you can then focus on providing amazing value to your audience.
But driving traffic to your site can be difficult. You need to develop strong content that is engaging and provides value. Once you have established yourself as an expert in your industry, you can then position yourself to become the go-to person for your industry. When someone asks for help, you can then direct them to your site for more information. This is called “lawnmowing” and it is a painless way to earn a few extra bucks from your existing audience.
So when someone lands on your site and decides to buy your product or click on one of your affiliate links, you want to make sure that they are given the best experience possible. This means that you would want to automatically send them to another site to make the purchase. If you are thinking that this will help you make money online, you are correct. But it also helps you create powerful word of mouth marketing that is completely free.
How Does Automatic Forwarding Work?
Once you have installed the Automatic Forwarding plugin, you will see a prompt at the top of your WordPress dashboard. Clicking the button will automatically send any new visitor to the CashGuru website. When they make the purchase there, their details are then automatically forwarded to your email address.
This is a great way for you to passively earn money from someone else’s success. When someone clicks an affiliate link or makes a purchase on your site, you will earn a commission. But you must ensure that they have the best experience possible. So if they make the purchase after visiting your site, you are going to make a commission regardless of whether you choose to accept the sale or not. This is one of the upsides to using Automatic Forwarding.
You also need to set up a redirect option so that when someone clicks on an affiliate link or makes a purchase on your site, they are automatically taken to the appropriate landing page. This will increase your conversions and make you more money. You can also set up redirects for free within Google Analytics. You will find plenty of information in their documentation.
Let’s Get Started
First, you will need to install the Automatic Forwarding plugin from WordPress.org. Just search for it in your WordPress dashboard and click the Install button to begin the process. When the plugin’s notification bar appears at the top of your WordPress dashboard, you can click the button to continue. The plugin will then begin downloading and installing.
This process can take some time, so please be patient.
Once the plugin is installed, you can then return to your WordPress dashboard’s menu and click on Settings. Here you will want to select the Affiliate Marketing Network that you use from the dropdown menu. Make sure that the Auto-Redirect is set to yes for all your affiliate links.
Once set up, you can then click on the Publish button to begin using the tool. You can also return to your site’s homepage and click on the Reviews button to see a list of your published reviews. You should see a small green circle with the silhouette of a man when you are viewing your site as a reviewer. This indicates that you have published content (at least two sentences) in the last 14 days.
Next, you will want to install the One-Click Upsell plugin. This plugin automatically triggers an up-sell when a customer makes a purchase from an affiliate link. It then takes them to another site to make the purchase. The benefit of this plugin is that it increases your conversions by giving customers what they want (in this case, more products to buy). The downside is that it takes up more time to complete a sale as you have to navigate to another site and get them to make the purchase there instead of on your site. But again, it’s all about the preferences.
Once both of these plugins are installed, you can then return to your WordPress dashboard’s menu and click on the Links button. Here you can add your various affiliate links as well as your own products’ affiliate links. Remember, you can use either the product’s affiliate link or your own affiliate link to promote a product.
Last but not least, let’s setup our email marketing platform. Just like any other email marketing platform, you can use either MailChimp or AWeber to sign up for a free account. Once you have your email list, you can use them to send out emails with product information, announcements, and sometimes fun offers.
As a marketer, you will want to take advantage of every opportunity to grow your affiliate sales. Don’t underestimate the power of a simple tool that can help you effortlessly grow your affiliate sales.
