If you are just getting started you probably have heard the term “Sticky Cookie”
Have you ever wondered What is a sticky cookie means?
Well today is your lucky day as we are going to talk about sticky cookies and why they are important.
We are going to talk about WEB STICKY COOKIE’s…..
- Web Cookie
- URL Cookie
- Internet Cookie
- Browser Cookie
- Affiliate Cookie
- Amazon Cookie
- ClickFunnels Cookie
The browsers use web cookies to allow you to quickly find things on the web. Its also a system that gives cookie crumbs to allow for the browsers to give you content that you are interested in.
Ever been to a website asking to accept their cookie?
Its also called Web Cookie
“An HTTP cookie (also called web cookie, Internetcookie, browser cookie, or simply cookie) is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser while the user is browsing.”
So, now we know what a browser cookie is its time to talk about why it can be important when it comes to making money online.
For example if you are wanting to be an Amazon Affiliate you want to make sure you know why cookies are popular.
Amazon Affiliate Cookie
The Amazon Affiliate cookie is a 24 hour cookie. This means that if you send traffic to Amazon via one of your Affiliate links from your websites, if the browser is using cookies and anything the person buys within a 24 hour time period you get commission on.
- Commission from 24 hour cookie
- Can be any product not the specific product you reviewed
In fact most times my Amazon Affiliate sales come from other or different niches then the exact product that I am reviewing.
This is great way to make more and more money. All you need to focus on is writing and reviewing more and more products to gain attention from the online traffic.
There are other Affiliate programs like ClickFunnels that have a LIFETIME Cookie…..
Why is a Lifetime cookie so cool?
This means that no matter how long it takes or what products the person who clicked on your affiliate link that gets attached to the programs Cookie….
YOU get CREDIT for the sell!
Even if the product isn’t what you promoted……for the entire lifetime of the cookie.
A person that has already clicked on your affiliate link buys something a year later……BAM still get credit for sale.
Its pretty amazing and there are ONLY a few companies out there doing this. (Hopefully more will catch on)
ClickFunnels is one of them…..They are said to have the VERY best affiliate program to date.
I personally use Clickfunnels to build out sales funnels for my personal business and others. You don’t have to use ClickFunnels to promote it and in fact they have an entire program teaching you how to promote it
However, I recommend trying it out as they have a FREE 14 day trial.
When looking for a program to promote. Do your research on what the commission structure is like. Any program offering a good Cookie is worth looking into….
While you can still make lots of money promoting or selling products one at a time, you may want to also include programs with Cookies.
This is a great way to create passive income for your business
