We’ve just added a powerful new sales tool at TripleClicks. We call it COLLECTIONS.
With this new tool, affiliates can create unlimited, unique themed collections of products to promote. Here’s how to get started:
- Open the details page of any product at TripleClicks.
- Click on the SFI Toolbox button.
- Click on “Add to collection” link.
- When you create a new collection, you’ll be asked to choose a name for it. Note: Your customers will see this name, so make it a good one and make sure you check your spelling, grammar, etc. You can also add, if you want, a description of your collection–this will also be seen by your customers. Here are some examples of good collection names:
- Mother’s Day Gifts
- Fresh ideas for Spring
- Get Healthy in 2016!
- My Favorite Books
- For Motorcycle Lovers
- Cool Cell Phone Accessories
- Ladies Hats
- Great Gardening Tools
- The item you chose to start the new collection is automatically added. Now, add more products to your collection by clicking the blue “Pick Items” button. This will take you to a handy screen where you can search and choose other products you want to add to this collection. Tip: Use the special search box and enter appropriate keywords and a department name to narrow your search to produce the best suggestions. Check the “Add To Collection” checkbox for any item you wish to add.
- Click the “DONE” button at the bottom of the screen when you’re done adding products.
- You’re now viewing your new collection page. It should display all the products you’ve chosen for this collection. On this page you can reorder how you want your products displayed by using the “Shuffle” link or by clicking the small star icons. Or click the pencil icon to edit your collection name, collection description, or to add your own personal comments to any product. To delete an item from your collection, click the small “X” icon. Tip: To see how your collection will look to customers, click the “View As Buyer” link in the top right corner. Click it again to return to the affiliate view.
You can create as many collections as you like…for whatever you want to promote…or for whatever audience (or even person) you want to target! The possibilities are endless.
Note: Once you’ve created a collection, it’s super easy to add to it any time you want. Just repeat the above steps #1 through #3, and then choose your desired collection from the collections menu to add a product to it.
When you have your collection completed with all the products you want in it, just grab the the affiliate link (the special, shortened URL displayed at the top of the collection page under the Share icon) and start sharing/promoting!
You can use the affiliate link in emails, on social media, in blogs, etc. And when your prospects click on your link, they’ll see your Collections name and all the products you’ve chosen–ready for purchase. And, of course, the affiliate link is associated with your SFI ID number so that you’ll earn the big 45% CV Direct Commissions on all sales you generate.
Collections is also for ECAs!
The new Collections tool is also a powerful new resource for ECAs. As an ECA, you can now create groups of products to promote like, “Stylish Home Decor” or “Fall Fashion Collection” or “New for 2016.”
Once a collection is created, it’s automatically displayed in a new section on your ECA TConnect page, and customers viewing your collection can easily add items to their cart to buy!
