the world so anyone — novice or pro — can get on the web and thrive.
Our customers have unlimited potential, so we were one of the first web hosts to offer unmetered bandwidth along with unlimited storage space, email capacity, and domains. We were also one of the first
hosting companies to offer 24/7 customer support. Now, as an leader in both technology and service, we work tirelessly to build products that our affiliates can proudly promote.
Our internal tracking system is custom-built to ensure you receive every single commission you earn. While other affiliate programs typically rely on only one or two primary tracking techniques, we utilize multiple methods to ensure accuracy. To give credit where credit is due, we start with the most effective tracking method available and then work down until we’ve exhausted all possible attribution techniques.
Create a How-To Guide
Adding a step-by-step guide to help your readers sign up for a Bluehost account is an effective way to increase conversions on your website. While the guide must be written in your own words, our team can supply you with sign-up screenshots to accompany your post (email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to use our images). Additionally, you can embed our YouTube tutorials onto your site. Include a tracking link any time you mention Bluehost on the page, as well as on every image, so that any purchases coming from your site will be recorded in your affiliate account. And make sure that your how-to page is visible in your menu structure, so it’s easy for visitors to find your Bluehost endorsement.
YouTube Tutorials Onto Your Site
Include a tracking link any time you mention Bluehost on the page,
as well as on every image, so that any purchases coming from your site will be recorded in your affiliate account. And make sure that your how-to page is visible in your menu structure, so it’s easy for visitors to find your Bluehost endorsement.
Add a Resources Page to Your Website
A resources page is a great place to share the products, companies, or services that you use or recommend. Add a section about web hosting and share why you love Bluehost. Include a tracking link to ensure that purchases coming from your website will be recorded in your affiliate account. A resources page is also a great place to have a link directing readers to your how-to guide (p.21). Finally, make sure that your resources page is visible in your menu structure, so it’s easy for visitors to find your Bluehost endorsement.
Place Links and Banners on Your Website
Where you place banners and links on your website makes a difference. Embed them on your most-visited pages.
- Place Tracking Links in Web Copy
- Make Your Banners Highly Visible
- Place Banners on Popular Pages
You can use your affiliate tracking link anywhere on your website where you talk about web hosting or related topics. Simply include a hyperlink in your body text. Placing large banners and tracked links in prominent locations on your website helps visitors see them and increases your click-through rate. The best place for banners is “above the fold,” meaning visitors don’t have to scroll down to see them.
Use Email Marketing
Sending your affiliate link via email can be a morebpersonal, effective way to leverage your relationship with visitors.
- Place Tracking Links in Web Copy
- Track Your Referrals Closely
You can use your affiliate tracking link anywhere on your website where you talk about web hosting or related topics. Simply include a hyperlink in your body text.
Email tracking is slightly less effective than tracking referrals from your website. That’s because email providers sometimes truncate the tracking link. If you notice that a referral isn’t recorded, contact us
immediately at email@example.com with your username and the customer’s hosting domain. We can manually credit your account.
Share on Social Media
If you have an active online following, it can make sense to promote Bluehost on social networks.
- Promote Bluehost News and Sales
- Talk About Bluehost in Moderation
- Direct Followers to Your Website
While affiliate pricing is normally the best deal, we occasionally cut our prices even lower or offer deals on certain add-on products. Social media can be a great place to share these promotions. Follow Bluehost on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and promote our blog posts and videos as we announce special deals and savings.
Don’t spam your followers by talking about Bluehost too frequently
or creating social media pages solely to promote Bluehost. Use social media in a natural way that fits with your regular sharing and posting schedule.
When possible, point social followers to your how-to guide or resources page instead of linking them directly to Bluehost’s site. That’s because social media sites — like email providers — occasionally truncate links, which can cause tracking errors. Additionally, people are more likely to sign up after they’ve read your personal review.
- Include Testimonials on Your Website
- Blog Regularly About Your Bluehost Review
