Should I Use Viglink On My Blog? Real Ways To Earn

We constantly get questions in our inbox on how to integrate Viglink on our niche sites... And we should probably do a tutorial about it.

But before we get to the tutorial, let's first get one thing clear. Should you even be using Viglink on your blog?

For the MOST part (99%?), the answer is, "No. You shouldn't use Viglink on your blog."

Independent merchants, who are the majority on Viglink have very poor conversion rates. So, if you can find a product on Amazon, We would recommend you promote it from the Amazon Associates program. You increase your chances of converting customers as well as the fact that you'll be paid for every other product they buy from Amazon.

And even when a product is not on Amazon, the second logical thing to do would be to check whether the merchant has an in-house affiliate program or affiliates with other affiliate networks (FlexOffers, ShareASale, LinkShare, MaxBounty, MarketHealth etc). The reason for this: Viglink is a third-party affiliate network and offers commissions that are lesser than what you'd get from the originating affiliate program.

The 1% bit for using Viglink

1. You can't find a product on Amazon and the merchant doesn't have an in-house affiliate program and you can't get into other affiliate networks where the offer is presented (case of ShareASale and ClickBank in most countries).

2. You got banned from the Amazon Associates Program.

3. Any other logical reason like discovering any opportunities that you missed.

4. Your affiliate program does not allow you to do deep linking

5. Your state has nexus law that burned affiliate programs

6. Easy to install, they even have word press plugin

Keep tuned for the complete integration guide soon.
