Do you have leaks in your affiliate marketing efforts?
What is an affiliate marketing leak?
An affiliate marketing leak is anything that takes the traffic you have worked so hard to get to another site.
Let's look at some of the more common leaks
- You have a leak if you have any pay-per-click ads on your blog or if they pop up on your splash page. LeadLeap used to popup a small window at the bottom of your after a few seconds with three ads. If someone clicked on one of these ads, they are gone. You just lost that potential customer. (LeadsLeap does not do this anymore. At least I could not find an example.) If you include Amazon or Google ads on your website/blog you have leaks.
- You have a leak if your splash page, lead capture page, and sales page has a YouTube video. Below is the end of a video I have on YouTube. If any of those pictures are clicked, the potential customer is gone and taken to someone else's video.

- Sometimes a sales page has a phone number that can be used to purchase the product instead of buying from the internet. Most of the time if your potential customer calls you will not get credit for the sale.
These are 3 examples of common leaks. Remember, a leak is anything that when clicked takes your potential subscriber/buyer away from your site.
Check the products you are promoting. What kinds of leaks did you find?
Whenever you are considering an affiliate offer, check all sales material provided by the product for potential leaks. If they exist you may want to find a different offer.
