Do you have a lot of products in your store?

Want to make it easy for affiliates to promote all of your products?

Of course you do! Then you need to use Omnistar’s deep linking feature.

Without deep linking, creating affiliate links to all of your products can be hard.

First of all, how will it work? Do you need to add the affiliate tracking code to all pages of your website? Can the affiliate create the link themselves? Do you need to generate the affiliate links?

All of these questions and worries get eliminated when you use deep linking.

In this post we are going to show you step by step how to enable deep linking.

What is deep linking?

Deep linking is when you generate affiliate links to individual products in your store.  So, instead of your affiliate links pointing to your homepage, a deep affiliate link points to the individual product.

Here’s an example, let us say that your stores homepage is www.mystore.com.

Regular affiliates link will point to www.mystore.com.

A deep link will point to www.mystore.com/product1/category2/color3

With the deep linking feature, all your affiliates will have the ability to generate links to individual products they want to promote.

It is very is to enable and generate.

Why is it important?

Deep linking is important because it makes it easy for your affiliates to promote all your products.

Some affiliates don’t just want to send all traffic to your homepage.

They would rather promote the product they like. The product that they are most authentic with.

If you are using influencers, don’t you want them to promote the product they love? The product they connected with? Deep linking makes it easy for your affiliates to promote these products.

It is very easy to promote these products because affiliates trust and believe in the product.

It will allow you to increase conversions rather than sending all the traffic to the home page.

With deep linking:

  • Affiliates can create links easily
  • You don’t have to add tracking code on all your product pages
  • Affiliates get to choose what products to promote
  • Affiliates are happy promoting the product that they really love
  • Affiliates promote products they support and have used
  • Affiliates don’t have to worry about the product customers buy
  • They fully trust customers will go to the correct product
  • And so much more!

    I would like to clarify if do they offer free trial before jumping to the paid plans?

    I have many affiliates that like to be able to link to specific products directly, so this is a great feature.



  3. Comment From Chris Jenkins

    It seems like the more tools you provide to affiliates like this the better. You really want to make it super simple for them to promote.



  4. Comment From Sue Slatery

    Most systems have your affiliates manually create their own deep link, so the automatic creation of this is a big help.
