In my previous article about the Useful, but not Essential Affiliate Marketing Tools I wrote about Trackers, Searching for Promotional Campaigns, Heatmapping, etc…
Today we’re going to go over and cover the best SEO, Spying, and Creative tools for affiliate marketing. Again, I want to point out that it is not necessary to use all the tools immediately. These tools are used to improve all the processes used to guide the user towards the conversion and, consequently, we need to collect data, optimize and undertake scaling actions.
If you still haven’t, be sure to subscribe to our newsletters so you don’t miss one of our articles (and we give away a ton of cool stuff). There will be a subscription form at the bottom of this post.
So, let’s dive in the world of affiliate marketing tools immediately…
What SEO tools help us grow? Surely if we have a blog in WordPress I suggest using plugins like All in One Seo Pack or Yoast, to create a sitemap and communicate it to the Google Search Console.
But this is not enough, it is necessary to have tools such as SEOZoom or SEMRush to help us improve the organic positioning. These software are real assistants in the analysis and research of keywords, in the study of competition, and in the analysis and support for link building. Again, if SEO is one of our priorities, we must consider the use of these tools.
Among the possibilities are some free SEO tools and some paid ones.

It carries out the task of tracking the multiple activities of your website: from backlinks to keywords ranking (list of keywords and their respective positions on search engines).

The free trial of the service is available, for subscriptions, however, it is necessary to contact SimilarWeb directly using the appropriate form.
Spy tools are used to understand how other affiliates are conveying an offer, be it on Facebook or other traffic sources. For some affiliates it is an indispensable tool because, without it, you don’t have the ability to intercept winning angles. This tool was created with the purpose of spying, copying, replicating and using the work of others to generate profits.
I do not recommend using this tool, not for the ethical question, simply because if we get used to this working method we lose the ability to create a winning but above all original communication from scratch. In the hypothesis of “I just need to take a look” our promotion will still be polluted by what others are doing. If you don’t believe me, just remember every time you see a sponsored on Facebook, take the screenshot and say “I do too”. Then maybe you don’t go to ROI! I realize how many affiliates are using this tool more and more and how limited they are in originality, just look at their communications.
Before using it ask yourself this question: “do I want to be first or am I satisfied with a second-place?”

How do I create a landing page? If you work with affiliations this problem is secondary because you generally use advertiser landing pages and your business will be to create prelanding. When you have your own product or information to distribute, you will need to create your landing pages.
You can create them in pure HTML, through the various WordPress composers or use LeadPages or Clickfunnels – again it depends a lot on your needs. Personally, for AffiliatePRO® events and products I prefer to use Clickfunnels because it interfaces quickly with Mailchimp and other tools.
