How to Use WooCommerce for Your Affiliate Marketing with BobWP


How to Use WooCommerce for Your Affiliate Marketing with BobWP
WP eCommerce Show

00:00 /

In Episode 60, we start our series on Affiliate Marketing and Affiliate Programs, sponsored by Bluehost. In this show, I’m flying solo and sharing my own experience of using WooCommerce as part of my affiliate marketing. WooCommerce gives you the ability to easily create affiliates as products, but there is so much more that goes into planning, organizing and making those affiliates work. Listen as I tell you how we did it.

I talked about:

  • What affiliate marketing is
  • How to set up your affiliates using WooCommerce
  • How to manage your affiliates effectively
  • What has worked best for us in placing and using our affiliate links
  • How we are using WooCommerce to sell some of our affiliate products

Thanks to Our Podcast Sponsor: Bluehost

    Great post Bob given me the insight I need to be able to set up my own site using woo commerce. Is there a demo site you could point me to, so I can see how it might look.

      That kind of depends how you want to present it, but you can see that we use it for some of our affiliates if you click on the bottom here “Browse eCommerce Plugins”.

      We also have this post on how to technically set it up in Woo.

      And another one that shows how to manage affiliate links easily with Woo.

      Thanks for your reply Bob. Looking on YouTube I can see that this is a very flexible platform, that can be used to get the look and layout I am looking for.

    Yeah totally with you with nofollow links for affiliate links!

    I used bluehost in the past but it wasn’t as powerful as you described. Once I had around 1,000 visitors per day, my site was slowed tremendously. I recommend websynthesis instead (although it’s more costly). It’s worth it! You might want to check it out too 🙂

    P.S. I am not an affiliate of websynthesis… Just a proud user and customer of theirs!

      Hey Natalie, I understand and yes, everyone can have different experiences with different hosts. I am guessing you were on basic shared with Bluehost and they do have other options for more powerful hosting depending on your needs. As you said, your current host costs more, but every host has other options that will cost more to meet your specific needs.
