4 Ways to Make Viglink Work for You

Does your affiliate network give you the best value for your link? Do you worry about the quality of your content with so much affiliate links that it turns your potential audience away? Let Viglink take care of these problems for you and learn how its products can help maximize your earnings.

Revenue Models

Viglink Convert

Earnings from links are not spread out equally among retailers, thus, products from one retailer may earn more from another. Viglink’s technology constantly monitors average earnings per click among 35,000 merchants, keeping real time pricing information up to date, and selects products with the best earnings for your link.

While your existing link (from other affiliate networks) is converted to earn higher revenue for you, Viglink’s technology is also capable of detecting “text mention” of specific merchants such as eBay and Amazon and is careful not to change them. Viglink Convert works well on all platforms including mobile!

Viglink Insert

Viglink’s semantic technology takes care of linking merchants, brands, and products relevant to your content . You now have more time to focus on creating quality content and not have to worry about looking for the highest paying retailers. If your content happens to mention any product carried by Viglink merchants, i.e. Kindle; it will automatically be linked to merchants who carry Kindle. Here’s proof, look at this article I did about Canva and hover your mouse over the word Kindle, Viglink automatically inserts a link back to merchants who carry the product. You can contact support if you wish to have absolute control of how you want your links to appear; i.e. link density, number of links inserted, and link location on your content.

Viglink Anywhere

Using Viglink’s URL builder allows you to earn while posting or sharing on social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, etc), forums, or even on email. You get paid as long as clicks bring in sales. It also gives you the option to use to tidy up the links.

Viglink Spotlight

Viglink Spotlight is a new revenue model offering that showcases product widgets. It is customizable and monetized according to your content, making relevant product offerings to your audience while providing positive experience.

Choose the right revenue model

Depending on the platform you are in, choosing the right revenue model spells the difference in maximizing your earnings. Among 4 revenue models, Viglink Convert and Viglink Anywhere offers 75% commission after a sale is completed to publishers; Viglink Insert brings in higher revenue than Convert and Anywhere.

Viglink Exchange and its semantic technology take care of the leg work relevant to your content. Viglink’s revenue models provide flexibility while optimizing earning potential for your links. You do not have to worry about compromising content quality.

I just realized there were 4 revenue models and not 3 (had just edited the article). Sorry for the mix-up &indianfighter emoticon :smile:

I haven't heard of this company before. I will probably have a look at them, although right now I am not looking for more ad content on my sites.

PenFlavor wrote on July 14, 2014, 12:33 PM

It will not compete against your ads anyway since it optimizes content on your site. Though I must admit, this might only suit people who are into affiliate marketing.

I just want something that pays me... The problem is that you can't run affiliates on .com sites so I'm shafted because I write from the UK, quote in GBP and can't expect my UK readers to accept everything in the alMIGHTY USD. Amazon is a piece of work when it comes to international earning. They withhold chunks of any income earned by those of us not in the US as well. To me that feels like being penalised for my country of residence.

I will have to check them out as well. Thanks for this great write up.

It has been a legitimate concern from people wanting to earn online, especially those working outside of the USA. And because you also have to contend with your audience it feels like you're being pulled from both sides. As for me, I am still learning the affiliate curve and was glad I stumbled into this, otherwise I would have been pulling my hair out. Would you consider 75% commission to be an attractive scheme or not?

I never heard about this site, I will tell my husband to have a look.

Very very interesting. Thank you again. I'm excited to look into this for sure. I do appreciate you've laid out the goodies, as well :)

This is a very thorough and useful review! I had toyed with the idea of having a blog or website, and this looks like a valid way to monetize it. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the information on Viglink. Aside from Viglink, I also heard about Skimlinks. Both are apparently very, very similar. Do you know anything about Skimlinks? Is Viglink actually better than Skimlinks? Is it more profitable to use Viglink?

PenFlavor wrote on July 29, 2014, 3:21 AM

Reviews did compare Viglink from Skimlinks, but in all honesty, I have not dug deeper into skimlinks. In the coming days I will be sure to include that on my list. Thanks for bringing that up freyayuki emoticon :smile:

PenFlavor wrote on July 29, 2014, 3:35 AM

Freyayuki I found a link that did a comparison between skimlinks and viglink here | |. I must say, there is small difference between the two in terms of payout and core technology used. I hope this helps temporarily.

Btw, are you contemplating on having an alternative revenue stream?

FreyaYuki wrote on July 29, 2014, 7:53 AM

Thanks. You're welcome. Yeah, I've seen a lot of reviews comparing Viglinks and Skimlinks. Some of the reviews that I saw seem to view Skimlinks in a more favorable manner as compared to Viglinks so I was curious about which one is really better.

FreyaYuki wrote on July 29, 2014, 7:58 AM

Thanks for that link. Yes, it seems that the 2 are not all that different. Maybe choosing between the 2 is just a matter of preference? But I did hear that you apparently can't easily search for available affiliates in Viglinks while this is supposedly easily done in Skimlinks. Yes, I've been looking into both Viglinks and Skimlinks (since they can give us access to many other affiliate programs) though I'm already using the Amazon Affiliates program.

PenFlavor wrote on July 29, 2014, 11:55 AM

Don't worry if you can not find available affiliates on Viglink, it will automatically be converted as long as you know the product name you want to affiliate with. It also does not matter if you are already part of Amazon Affiliates Program, you can chose to over ride it with Viglink; in fact you can use all three (Amazon, Skimlinks, and Viglink) and still earn with Viglink. Their technology does the leg work, all you have to do is sit back and relax emoticon :smile:

FreyaYuki wrote on July 30, 2014, 4:13 PM

Thanks. I did hear that you can use Amazon Affiliates Program with either Viglinks or Skimlinks. But it does seem like trying to use both Skimlinks and Viglinks in one site or blog might cause them to compete with each other since the 2 are very similar and might have a lot of the same affiliates?

I've been researching Viglink today, and it looks like something I might be interested in.
