With the creation of Wande’s World YouTube channel, Wande found an alternative outlet to share her original content with her followers. The new channel created the need to bring value to her audience while also being able to bring in revenue to support her passion for writing. With a full-time job and limited time and resources to dedicate to blogging, she needed an effective way to monetize the content she was creating.
In addition, after creating her videos, Wande had to manually find the merchants with an affiliate program as well as the ones that offered the best commissions (a time-consuming and laborious process.) These tasks had to be accomplished without impacting her capability to produce high-quality content and please her audience.
After creating video content, Wande searched for products featured and included shortened affiliated links that she easily sourced via Skimlinks Editor in the video description. This made it easy for her subscribers to get information about and potentially purchase the items highlighted in her videos. Due to the interactive nature of the video platform, Wande’s affiliated links on her YouTube channel performed very well and drove a large portion of her revenue.
Blogging is becoming more and more complicated and I’m always trying to find the easiest way to do something. Skimlinks has made my life easier.
From the moment Wande started using Skimlinks Editor to create and share links on her YouTube channel, the importance of the revenue created via that channel grew larger while making the process more efficient, helping support Wande in her passion for video blogging.
Prior to Skimlinks, I would browse for items online and look and see if each individual retailer was part of an affiliate program, a manual and time consuming process. Now I can easily share affiliate links in my YouTube channel without wasting time.
