Affiliate Site WordPress Plugins
We’ve recently been working on some affiliate sites, so here are some notes from our plugin research, maybe they’ll be helpful to you:
WordPress Plugins to help advertise for affiliates:
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/123linkit-affiliate-marketing-tool/faq/ – seems to be a membership thing – they take 15%
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-auto-affiliate-links/ – free, automatically links to the appropriate affiliate.
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/skimlinks/ – similar to above
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-affiliate-network/ – free, displays Google affiliate ads
Plugin Round-Up from 2010 – http://www.amnavigator.com/blog/2010/05/24/top-20-affiliate-plugins-for-wordpress/
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/coupon-code-plugin – free version works well so far, but I’m not sure where to put the <img> for impressions. – $27 for pro with $10 coupon once lite is installed. Doesn’t have a spot for the Affiliate IMG for tracking impressions.
http://www.wpcoupon.com/purchase/ – pay plugin $199 (but I’ve heard bad things about it)
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/drp-coupon – free, helps create coupons. On my site, it didn’t work, the coupon wouldn’t go anywhere – tried in both firefox and safari.
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/coupon-grab/ – grabs coupons from around the internet and displays them
CJ (Commission Junction)
http://www.wizardplugins.com/ – looks good for CJ and Linkshare (get 25% off http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-forum-classified-ads/274394-premium-wordpress-commission-junction-linkshare-avantlink-overstock-plugins.html ) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5hv3E5sJKY) – but doesn’t set up coupons? $39.95
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/amazon-reloaded-for-wordpress/ – free
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/amazon-affiliate-link-localizer/ brings people to their local Amazon store- free
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/amazon-smartlinks/ – free
