As a busy affiliate marketer, you probably spend a lot of time creating engaging content and choosing products your audiences will love. Building affiliate links may be nothing more than an afterthought — but it’s a critical part of content monetization.
Without affiliate links, you can’t earn affiliate revenue. It’s as simple as that.
Sovrn gives publishers several options for creating affiliate links, including the “Create Links” tool in the Sovrn Commerce platform. When you log in to the platform, the process is relatively simple: just paste in the product URL and enter an optional link name. You can also add UTM tracking parameters to capture performance data on each unique link. When you’re done, simply generate your link and paste it wherever you want.
While the Commerce platform’s link building and management functionality is powerful, it did require users to bounce between the product page, the platform interface, and the blog or social site where the link will be used. Our customers told us they wanted a faster, easier way to build UTM-enabled links.
We heard their feedback — and we always strive to give our customers what they want.
Introducing our new and improved Chrome extension
Today we’re pleased to introduce an enhanced Chrome extension for generating affiliate links. With this new and improved tool, you can build UTM-enabled affiliate links all in one place — without switching between multiple browser tabs.
You can also see performance metrics like estimated EPC, CPA, and CPC right in the browser extension window. Our new Chrome extension even includes social sharing buttons, so you can share your link directly to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube with a single click.
Links created with our new Chrome extension can be managed in the Commerce platform and edited at any time. Just make the change once and it will be reflected anywhere you’ve used that affiliate link.
