There is a new WordPress Plugin called ThirstyAffiliates to help affiliates with their link management.
I’ve been using Pretty Link to manage my affiliate link redirects for quite a while, but I really like the simplicity and ease of ThirstyAffiliates.
I was curious about the name, and asked the creator, Josh Kohlbach, about it.
He said… “I guess it kind of describes the attitude behind the product. You’ve got to stay thirsty to get success, you know? It kind of just walked into my head one day fully formed and I was like ‘Yeah! That’s exactly what I want it to say.'”
I like the link categories with ThirstyAffiliates, so I can list the affiliate network for a given link, and other details.
Also, there is click data for links for this week, last week, this month, and last month.
There are lots of other features to help manage your links. Check out ThirstyAffiliates.
Any affiliates not currently redirecting their affiliate links should start doing it now. Why? Well, there are many reasons, but one of the most important is if an affiliate program closes or kicks you out due to an affiliate nexus law, it’s far easier to change links in one place than to search all over for links.
