More PHP Rotator Script Uses

The PHP Rotator Script has several different uses.  In my last post I talked about using it as an advertising co-op link rotator .

Today, I’m going to share with you something you need to be doing anytime you create a website link, a link in a PDF, or a link in an email.

You must always remember to manage your links.

Let’s say you are promoting an affiliate program.  You create a Squidoo lens, a Hubpage, a Weebly blog along with a number of other content pages on various services.  You place an affiliate link in each one of those pages going to the affiliate products home page.

Some time later you check your Squidoo lens and click to go to the affiliate product site, only to find the product no longer exists.  So, you go find another similar product to replace the dead product.  Then you change the links in your Squidoo lens, your Hubpages, and…oh know, you can’t remember where else you have content that points to that dead product.

So, you have a number of sites containing content that contain dead links.  All of the hard work you went through creating that content has been wasted.

Or, what if you hard coded an affiliate link in a PDF report or ebook.  You distribute that PDF all over the internet.  Then, the affiliate product owner changes the affiliate link, or starts giving the PDF away for free, or the product site is taken down.  Now you have thousands of those PDFs with bad links.

That’s why it’s important for you to manage your links to that you have control over them.

To protect your links, use the HomeBizRotator PHP Rotator Script.

You can do this in two different ways.
1.  Add the affiliate link for the product you want to promote to the rotator.  Then use the direct link to that URL in your PDFs or on your websites.  Then you can change that destination link in the rotator anytime you need to.

2.  Use the main rotator URL on your websites and in your PDFs.  Then you can change links within the PHP rotator script, to point to whatever site you choose to point them to.  Plus, you can test different products by adding several products to the php rotator script and track which products result in the most sales, as they are rotated to visitors.

That’s just one of the uses for the HomeBizRotator PHP rotator script.  I’ll provide a few more suggestions in a few days.

Link Rotation Uses

The longer I use the HomeBizRotator rotator script, the more uses I find for it and the more I see others using it in different ways.

Here are two of the things I see link rotation used for.

1.  Network Marketing (MLM) downline building.  I have had a number of customer buy the rotating links script to help them build their MLM downline.

They would have their downlines buy a spot in an advertising coop.  The coop leader would purchase advertising in bulk, some have even purchased radio advertising.  The coop manager provides the advertising company one link to send the traffic to.  As traffic comes to the rotator link, each coop members MLM site is brought up in order.

As website visitors join the MLM, they are placed in the coop members downline as well as the coop leaders downline.  The individual coop members are happy and get excited as they get new downline members with little work.  The coop manager gets new members placed in his downline by helping his downline, with some work but with little money out of pocket.

2.  For testing multiple websites or offers.  Have you ever bought advertising, and sent it to one website that just didn’t convert well, then couldn’t change the destination site?  It’s frustrating as you see your money being wasted on a product that does not convert.  Instead, if you send the traffic to a link rotation script, you can change out, or add new links to rotate at any time.  You have more control over where your traffic is going to end up.  You can also test different websites or offers to find the best converting products.

I always suggest you protect your links going out in your ebooks or emails.  Use a link rotation URL in your ebooks or emails, so you can change the destination website on your end.  Once the email is sent, or the ebook is distributed, you can’t bring those ebooks or emails back and change the links.

If you are using a link rotation script, like the HomeBizRotator, you can change the final destination links on your end.  Products and companies change links, and disappear all the time.  Protect your links so you can easily change them on your end if you need to.

Next time I’ll talk more about some of the benefits of rotating links.
