best affiliate marketing tools

There is an almost endless number of online digital tools aimed at making the lives of affiliate marketers easier.

In fact, there are so many affiliate marketing tools available, it can be hard to know which ones are worth using.

In this blog post, I will list 9 of the very best affiliate marketing tools currently available…in my humble opinion of course.

I'll also discuss what each tool does and how it can increase your affiliate marketing success!

KW Finder By Mangools

KW Finder is one of the best keyword finder tools currently available.

Overall it's probably my absolute favourite of all the affiliate marketing tools I use.

I love it!

It allows you to quickly and easily find profitable keywords to target when you're deciding on new content to produce.

This tool is essential for serious affiliate marketers who want to make the most of their time.

Here are the core functions a Mangools membership will bag you:

  • KW Finder
  • SERP Checker
  • SERP Watcher
  • Link Miner
  • Site Profiler

Over the last few years I have used SEMRush, Ahrefs, and KWFinder.

All great tools for affiliate marketers, but they have different strengths.

What I know for sure is that when I select content to write having carried out my KW research on KWFinder, it tends to rank better.

So something about the way I use KWFinder is producing better results than when I use other KW research tools.

Personally I find Ahrefs a bit too complicated to use. I tend to get lost in there…just so much data being thrown at you.

If you're an affiliate marketer and you're not tracking your links, you are totally insane!

And so it stands to reason that using a high-quality link-tracker is also essential.

Make no mistake, this is definitely not one of those affiliate marketing tools you can live without.

Pretty Links is an incredibly easy-to-use WordPress plugin that enables you to easily create, and insert, shortlinks for your all of affiliate marketing campaigns.

And of course, It also allows you to accurately track the clicks on all of your affiliate links.

I used to use Thirsty Affiliates, but for me, Pretty Links is more straightforward to use.

This plugin is an essential tool for affiliate marketers who want to stay on top of their affiliate efforts.

Rank Math SEO

Rank Math is a super-powerful SEO plugin.

I would no longer consider installing any other SEO plugin on any of my sites.

Simple set-up, easy-to-use…and accurate!

This plugin is essential for affiliate marketers who want to rank their websites high in the search engines, providing a wide range of features that can help you improve your SEO ranking.

Some of the key features of Rank Math include:

  • Automatic keyword optimization
  • Integrated Schema mark-up
  • Built-in XML Sitemap generator
  • Google SERP preview
  • One-click disavow tool

These are just a few of the many features that Rank Math offers.

This plugin is essential for affiliate marketers who want to rank their websites high in the search engines.

Rank Math offer both a Free and Premium version.

I would say that if you're quite new to the game, just stick with the free version, until you find you've outgrown it..which should take a while because it is rammed with top features.

Easily one of the very best affiliate marketing tools available right now!

unbounce optin form builder

That sentence does not do justice to just how great the pages Unbounce allows you to create are, and just how simple their tech is to use.

Some of the key features of Unbounce include:

  • Wide range of templates that are easy to customise
  • Built-in A/B testing tool

Stencil By GetStencil

I'll be honest with you here…I've never used Stencil's main competitor, the better known Canva.

Never needed to.

I stumbled upon Stencil when I was first looking at ways to produce better looking images and graphics for my sites…and I've never had any reason to look again.

Affiliate marketing is all about promoting other people's products and services in exchange for a commission on the sales that you generate.

And, in order to be super-successful, you need to be able to create high-quality promotional pieces, with supporting graphics, that will convince your audience to buy the products you're promoting.

Stencil is a great tool for affiliate marketers because it makes it easy to create beautiful visuals that will help you sell more products.

Surfer SEO

About six months ago I was having a serious clear out of my monthly subscriptions.

For some odd reason I binned off Surfer SEO.

Talk about throwing out the baby with the bathwater!

What was I thinking? Utter madness!

I use Surfer SEO for pretty much every piece of content I produce. I use it to plan new content, and I use it to improve old content.

Obviously when I regained my sanity I re-subscribed.

Surfer SEO is a powerful content planning / keyword research / SEO audit tool, that helps affiliate marketers produce content that will stand the best chance of ranking high in the SERP's.

Plus, Surfer SEO makes it easy to track your rankings over time so you can see how well your content is performing.

Jasper AI (formerly Jarvis)

I actually enjoy writing content for my sites.

But I also know it's an area that many affiliates hate with a passion.

That's one of the reasons why so many content writing agencies have sprung up over the last decade or so.

And even though I enjoy writing content, I'm also very slow at it…painfully slow.

That's a problem when you're trying to turn out content for a small handful of sites. It leaves little option but to seek out a way of outsourcing your content writing, or at least some of it.

Jasper AI is a great way to create high quality content quickly and easily.

It's an AI machine learning platform that can help you to create articles, blog posts, ads, and other content.

It alarmingly well written and properly optimised for search engines.

I had tried half-a-dozen agencies before giving Jasper AI a go.

Jasper AI knocks them all into a cocked hat!
