Since the launch of the lynda.com Affiliate Program last November, we have seen fantastic growth in sign ups, clicks, and sales. It’s been wonderful to partner with our affiliates to share the lynda.com Online Training Library® with new members, and to reward our partners in the process.
We have added over 100 new banners that are directly targeted to many of the training courses and vendors being offered by lynda.com. Current affiliates can view them all by logging into the Affiliate Control Panel.
Whether you are a lynda.com affiliate partner or promoting other affiliate programs, these tips will come in handy to help you promote partner programs and increase clicks and sales.
Website banners and text links: Add a combination of affiliate text and banner links to place above the fold on your website or blog. Create a section or heading called ‘resources’ or ‘products I recommend’ and add affiliate tagged links to lynda.com.
Utilize lynda.com free content: Did you know that you can embed lynda.com tutorials directly from YouTube? Go to the lynda.com YouTube channel and select the movie you want to promote on your site. Then, below the embedded code on your site, add an affiliate-tagged link to lynda.com for your visitors to learn more and purchase memberships at lynda.com.
