How to Get People To Click On Your Link – Video
Mention Early, Mention Often
If you are writing a piece of content, and want somebody to click on your affiliate link. One of the best ways to get people to click on your link is to mention it early on in the post. People have short attention spans and may not read your whole post, bu if you can at least give them something to click on early on in the post, there is a good chance a lot of the readers will take a look, even if they don’t finish reading the post.
When I am creating a YouTube video for example, I will always place my links on the first or second line of the description so that way they are easily visible to the viewer. I also make sure that I mention where the link is in the video, early on, usually after the introduction.
When I embed one of my videos on my blog I know that there is call “click the link” below the video, so I always create a link below the video to whatever it is I want to show my readers.
Use A Compelling Call-To-Action (CTA)
A call-to-action is simply asking your viewer/reader to click the link, because they want to see what is on the other side. A successful call to action needs to stand out and by visible to the reader. The best way to do this is to seperate the CTA from the rest of the post, giving it it’s own like in the post.
Banner ads and custom call-to-action buttons are also a great way to help them stand out and become visible to the reader. This is not available on every platform, but is availabe if you have your own blog or website.
