How to simply boost your referral success

Ok, if you are reading this post right now, I have to assume you've read the previous post. If not, please do so. It's crucial for the understanding of this post now were good to go!

As you have learned in the previous post, the referral buttons are a good way to add money to your site's income. Now we're going to learn how we can make the most out of the buttons, and Boost our referral's success.


First of all, and most important- Choose the referral button, that suits your site the best.

For example if you're sites outlet and backgrounds are all pink, do not use an orange referral button. Now you must be thinking- 'Well, that's obvious!'. My answer to you is- 'Yes it is'.
But still, you find many web sites and blogs, which make this newbie mistake. And they do it because they think that if the button is BIG & COLORFUL, every one will want to click it. And as you probably know- That's not the case.

Another thing is making sure the size is right. As I mentioned above, do not always go for the biggest button. Sometimes choosing a nice elegant button, which sits nicely in your site, is better than a huge ugly button.


Secondly- Choose the most attractive content for your referral buttons.

Google offers us plenty of different contents for the buttons. I personally think that the most attractive content forthe Google adsense program is, "Generate revenue from your website". It's simple, and most important- it tells you exactly why you should be interested in it.
For the FireFox referral button, I think the most attractive content is, "Browse the web faster. Get FireFox with Google toolbar". And yet again- it's simple and informative.


And last but not least- Make sure you know what you're doing.

Do not put referral buttons in the middle of the text. It doesn't look good. It looks as if you are intentionally trying to make the reader click on the button. You need to let people make their own decision, you cant just stick it their and expect people to click it. If someone really wants to download FireFox because he believes Google's browser provides faster browsing and better features, he will click on the referral button. You can mention somewhere on your site that if someone is interested in the software, he is welcome to download it easily threw the referral button on your site.

But make sure you never encourage someone to click on a button. It is against Google's policy, and it can get you're account banned. Never say something like- 'Click this Button!! If you click it you will have a happy marriage!" (I hope you get the idea..)


That's it for now. Next update soon, make sure you come back.
