If you’re looking to sell some gadgets through an affiliate site you’ll be interested to learn that Firebox have just launched videos of its products for affiliates to use on their websites.
You choose a video, enter your affiliate id, any tracking id you want and then the code adapts so the link is coded properly. You can preview your video on that page too, and even test the tracking.
Its been proven that especially for products such as ours, video vastly improves conversion rates. This is especially true for any products that move or have an interactive element. I expect affiliates who use the player will also see an upturn in conversion. At the very least, its a fun piece of content to add value to your site.
You can see more about this on Firebox.com here. I’ll certainly be using these on a few websites over the next few weeks.
