A professional-looking website, with a lot of human and animal photographs in it. This website I am going to talk about has a pretty good idea about the kind of Internet business that they are working on. It looks complicated on the surface, and yet it is very simple to use once you started to do a few clicks on the website. It has an affiliate program to attract interested website owners to refer interested traffic to their website. This next website I am going to talk about is the affiliate program for MedStore, a Prescriptions and Health website which has an exhaustive list of products and information to educate anybody who is interested in any kind of medicine and health.
Please allow me to show you a video review of MedStore before we carry on.
In this review, I am going to concentrate towards the affiliate program for MedStore, and the various factors that make up the whole idea of taking up this affiliate program. This affiliate program is offering commission from 50% to 70%, and it is depending on the number of sales you are able to generate for the company. Generally speaking, whenever we are promoting any affiliate product, we will usually look for the following:
- How much commission we can get from the referrals?
- How capable is this website in converting the traffic into customers whom we have referred?
- How is this website going to provide customer support after sales?
When we are working on affiliate websites, we tend to look out for the amount of commission we can get. That’s because we are going to pay for the marketing strategy in terms of time and money. And if the payout isn’t attractive to work on it, it is not feasible to work on it anyway. However, if the payout is good either in short term or long term, it is worthed doing it for sure. When I was looking at the kind of prices that this website is offering, I realize that the price can range roughly from $12 onwards. Of course, the money wouldn’t be good if it is only a one-time sale. MedStore is smart enough to offer lifetime commissions for returning customers since such health product is likely to have returning customers once they have found your product good.
Good Sales Copywriting Everywhere
To all the affiliate marketers out there, I wish to comment that this website seems to have a very good prospect out there. I may not know how long it has been in existence, but the kind of details that the website owner has put inside is worthed to be praised. When I was surfing through the website as a visitor, I realize that the website owner seems to know where my eyeball is focusing on. And the website owner simply shows me things like the following:
- “We provide FREE standard shipping on all orders over $149” to encourage the visitors to buy more since they are already there. This not only improves their sales, it also helps in your affiliate business.
- I also appreciate the idea of showing how much we can save if we buy more.
- Though I don’t know if there is any doctor helping to prescribe the medicine, it is still a plus factor to have no consultation fee for buying the medicine that they need.
- It shows clearly that the person can buy more items all within 24 hours and charged for only 1 shipping price since the website system is done in such a way that customers can only buy one item at a time.
- And for those visitors who are thinking if the item can be shipped discretely, it is being shown clearly on the website that it is shipped with blank description.
- “Why choose MedStore?” is shown on the right to tell me all the reasons for buying from them.
- Order not received on time? MedStore will reship the order again for free.
- “100% Satisfaction Program” tells us that if we are not satisfied, they can either give us an order for free, or refund us completely.
These are the kind of stuffs that turn visitors into customers because they are all looking to buy products without any risk.
Articles, Articles Everywhere
Another thing to note is that this website has an exhaustive list of pages with quality contents. The website is not only showing description and usage of each individual medicine, it is also showing the latest health news and health articles. With so much information online that they have published, I have done a quick Google search and found out that they have about 25,100 pages being indexed in the search engine. With so many pages published online and holding a Google page rank of 5, there is a likely chance that this website is receiving really good amount of quality traffic from Google for its efforts. By doing so much for the website, we can see how serious the website owner is in the business. This is very important to those of us who are looking into becoming their affiliates because our affiliate business might be affected if MedStore is not taking enough time to work out on their side to create their business recognition online.
Customer Support After Sales
I may not know what kind of customer support they can provide after sales. But I do realize that they really embrace returning customers very much. Just take a look at the bonus pills that they are providing for coming back to buy from MedStore. Almost everywhere is written about it so as to drill this information in the customers’ head so that they will always remember to come back for more. And they always emphasize on reshipping your order for free if you are not receiving your order on time or if you are not satisfied with your order. You can also ask for full refund, just for being unsatisfied with your order. That’s the kind of online business that they are offering since they are serving products to everywhere around the world.
My Web Visiting Experience To A Technical Website
Although I am pretty impressed by how professional this website is and how detailed they are in providing the information for their visitors, there is something which has been in my mind that i wish to talk about. Whenever I click on one of the menus (Let’s say “Herbal & Diet Supplements“) on top, I will see some of the familiar categories on the left such as “Men’s Health”, “Women’s Health”, “Weight Loss”, and so on. Then when I click further on “Men’s Health”, I start to see all the unfamiliar and confusing health terms which are not telling me what they are about. I have to click it myself to find out more before I have to click the rest too. This website is done in such a way that the visitors seem to know what kind of medicine they are looking for already. It is pretty good for Google to link to their individual pages through the various search terms. But as a visitor trying to browse around, I am not familiar with all these terms at all.
Going towards the future
The kind of path that this website seems to be heading towards is an automated business for both the website owner and the affiliates. Since health business is always ongoing while many people are getting more and more health conscious, this could be a fantastic affiliate business to be in if MedStore is going to and continue to provide great services to the customers. The idea about giving commissions for returning customers is really attractive for the affiliates since they can continue to look for new visitors while MedStore help to maintain the old ones.
Overall, I must say that this website is pretty good and has done very well in their internet marketing campaign. Since the website is built in such a way that the customer should know about its product name, I suggest our affiliate websites’ value proposition should be built to educate the visitors more about the medical terms before referring them to MedStore to buy them.
