How to Earn More Affiliate Revenue on YouTube with Choice Pages

We’ve long believed that Choice Pages are an awesome way for creators to boost their revenue and diversify their affiliate partnerships. Armando Ferreira (of the popular MondoBytes YouTube channel) shared a case study with us that yielded exciting results (more than doubling his revenue!). But like many of you, we wanted more data. We wanted to know that his experience wasn’t an exception.

So we set up a Choice Page experiment with other YouTubers to see if we could prove that Armando’s experience wasn’t a fluke.  

Turns out we were able to consistently produce amazing results!  Over 11 separate tests, we saw an average of 2.2x improvement in earnings-per-click with some clients seeing as much as 4.2x lift!

If you’re a creator on YouTube looking to generate some extra income, you’re probably already using affiliate links to recommend your favorite products. (And if you’re not, you should be!

Even worse, this makes it feel like a huge commitment to adopt an intelligent link management service like Geniuslink to start earning those commissions—particularly when you need to go back and replace hundred of affiliate links across dozens of videos.

Our YouTube Link Optimizer—now with improved functionality—is here to help!

Introducing Product Search for Choice Pages 

Over the past few years, we have been hard at work to transform the way our clients are able to promote and sell the products that they love. Our Choice Pages feature, allows you to promote a single product across a multitude of different retailers, giving your customers a way to comparison shop prior to making a purchase. A couple of months ago we introduced a brand new enhancement to this feature, that automatically offers a list of suggested merchants, with affiliate programs, selling the same product as soon as an Amazon URL is pasted into the Choice Page. 

These suggestions made it easier than ever to quickly build out a Choice Page that featured the same product across multiple different retailers, with the click of a button! 

However… we didn’t want to just stop there.
