Sigma Affiliate Program Dos and Don’ts

Whether you are new to affiliate marketing or are looking for some motivation, today we’re sharing some tips for success. As an affiliate, it may be difficult to know what you need to do, and just as importantly, what not to do. Use the tips below to guide you when making important decisions regarding your affiliation.

DO Take the time to build a quality website. Make sure that it is visually appealing, creative, contains original content and encourages repeat visitors.

DON’T – Quickly create a website, put up an affiliate banner and expect to earn commission. Affiliate success is not immediate. Be ready to commit to your website and affiliation!

DO – Be honest with your followers. Always remain truthful, genuine and respectful. Maintaining a positive and trusting relationship with your followers/viewers is a must! Additionally, all affiliates should create a disclosure policy for any site where you are using affiliate links.

DON’T – Spam. Not only will it drive your potential customers away, we will cancel your affiliate account if we see it.

DO – Your research! Learn about Sigma products and various affiliate strategies. The more you know, the more likely you are to master affiliate marketing!

DON’T – Assume you need to own Sigma products to be a successful affiliate. Take advantage of everything we offer. You can use any of the product descriptions and images from the Sigma website. Follow the Sigma Affiliate Blog, where we provide you with new product information, discount codes, free gift updates and all the tools you need to be a successful affiliate!

DO – Remain positive. Be willing to try different techniques and make changes if your strategies aren’t working. What worked for you in the past may not work in the future. Be flexible and don’t get discouraged!

DON’T – Give up!

  2. Great post, I got my brush set back in March but have been waiting to blog about them as I wanted to really take my time to understand how the brushes work best for me first - luckily I took photos while they were nice and new :-)
