Cyber Monday is just around the corner and now is the perfect time to be writing commerce-related content (comtent) about electronics. Video games are regular top commission drivers in our network over Thanksgiving weekend and publishers can make up to $80 on big-ticket electrical items over Cyber weekend and Cyber Monday, so writing the comtent is definitely worth it. We’ve got three top tips to write electrifying Cyber Monday comtent below and deals from our merchants so you can get writing straight away.

1. Skip straight to social

Cyber Monday is a feeding frenzy, so you need to make sure you have a constant stream of content throughout the day to keep your readers engaged and clicking on your affiliate links. Sharing affiliate links straight to social is a great way to do this, and with our Editor Tool, you can share short affiliate links straight from a merchant’s website.

Here’s a few merchants to get you started sharing offers:

B&H Photo 75% off sale, Commission 4%, 5% Outdoor Gear, 6% for Pro Audio

Newegg.com 76% off Bluetooth Selfie Sticks, 1.5% commission

T-Mobile Bring your device or buy a phone, get $200 back in bill credit over 20 months 11/24-12/31

2. Make your comtent topical

Throughout Cyber Monday, your priority as a publisher is making sure you’re writing about the right deals at the right time. That’s why checking the Product Report in the Publisher Hub to see the tech and electronics products trending across our entire network and your own website is so important. Another great way to be topical is to use recent talking points, like the launch of The Grand Tour on Amazon Instant video, to push relevant products like Amazon Fire TV, now available refurbished for a $44 discount.

3. Be game for Cyber Monday

It used to be all about big ticket electrical items, now video game consoles and games are the big business on Cyber Monday. They were a top performing category in our network last Black Friday weekend and we expect nothing different this year! With a new Pokémon game and titles like the new Call of Duty for Xbox and Playstation, this could be the bumper year for video games, so make sure to feature them in your comtent — publishers earned up to $20 per bundle last year. Here’s a few offers and deals we cherrypicked to help you make sure you win on Cyber Monday:

Gamestop Inc Save $50 on new Xbox One S 1TB consoles (Commission 2-5%)
Dell: Save 19% on Xbox One S 500 GB Battlefield Bundle + Skyrim SE with free shipping! (Commission 2%)
Monoprice: Save 16% on Sony Playstation 4 (PS4) Slim 500 GB Console Uncharted 4 Bundle (Commission 3%, ends 11/29)
eBay Pokémon Sun Spotlight Deal $39.69

So there you have it, great deals and simple tips to create your own electronics focused comtent just in time for Cyber Monday. Make sure to check out our post on optimizing your comtent for mobile too, to make sure you make the most of the Cyber Monday opportunities
