Happy customers are likely to talk about your products. Perhaps some will Tweet about what they purchased from you, letting their friends know how much they like the item. Maybe they'll review your product on Amazon or the App Store. Or if you're lucky, you might find people writing reviews about your product, sharing tips about it in videos, and linking to it on their own sites and stores.

The latter is one of the best ways to get new people to know about your products—but it's also one of the hardest to achieve. It's easy enough to ask people to share your product on social media, perhaps in conjunction with a giveaway or promotion. But getting them to take the time to promote your products often takes a little nudge.

Affiliate marketing is a popular way to nudge users to share your products, by letting them make money when their followers buy your products. And Tapfiliate lets you add affiliate links to your site and track recommendations and shares, no matter what you're using to sell your products.

It starts out with your own site or online store, where you've listed your products and set up a checkout experience. The goal is to drive new visitors to your product pages—and to have them actually make the purchase. Tapfiliate works with your existing site to track just that. You can add its tracking code to your site, or use one of its integrations or plugins to connect it deeply with your store. Or, you can use its API to tie it directly into your custom app.

That'll give you the data about which users referred new customers. All you'll then need is to start building an affiliate network that'll share those referral links.

For that, you'll turn to your Tapfiliate account. There, you can add marketing assets, including text, links, videos, and images (up to 150kb each) you'd like your affiliates to use when sharing your products. You can customize your affiliate signup form and dashboard, even using your own domain if you want so customers will feel at home when creating an affiliate account. And you can set up how much you'll pay out for each sale, setting different commission rates or raw payout amounts for your various product categories. You can even setup recurring payouts for subscription services, if you'd like.

Then, whenever anyone wants to share your products, they can signup for an account with your Tapfiliate form, and get their own sharing links and assets from their Tapfiliate dashboard. Whenever they land a sale, they'll see it on their dashboard—and you'll be able to see all of your affiliate sales and sort them for trends in your own dashboard. You can then pay your affiliates on a schedule, via PayPal, direct bank transfer, bitcoin, or even with a real check.

Affiliates can be a simple way to give your business a boost—but make sure they don't take your time away from creating great products and building your own business. Tapfiliate takes care of all the details, helping you see the value affiliates bring and pay them easily, without having to build anything extra into your site or sales process.
