We have thousands of archives in our forum that include links to outdoor stores on their network, so testing the ALE was a no brainer for us. The ALE made it possible to generate revenue from old archived threads.

Park City, UT (PRWEB) May 30, 2011

AvantLink.com recently published an Affiliate marketing case study on how web forums or blogs can generate revenue from existing content using their ALE. In the case study a popular online skiing community, Teton Gravity Research (TGR), was used to demonstrate the earning potential of this small javascript snippet. TGR immediately started earning commission revenue from links deep in their forum archives. The case also discusses linking efficiencies that exists for Affiliate marketers who take advantage of the ALE.

It is not unusual for community members in web forums, blog subscribers, etc. to post links to web stores during the course of a discussion thread. If you have a web site community and the stores linked to are part of the AvantLink network, utilizing the ALE is the ideal way to earn commissions on sales resulting from those links. The basic ALE link conversion script does not have any visual impact on the way a web site looks. The content or html is not modified in any way, so it's working entirely behind the scenes. The ALE script looks for a domain match, and performs a client-side conversion of applicable links via the end user's browser.

"The ALE is a powerful tool offered by the most innovative Affiliate network on the planet," says Todd Jones from TGR. "We have thousands of archives in our forum that include links to outdoor stores on their network, so testing the ALE was a no brainer for us. I am glad this opportunity presented itself because the ALE made it possible to generate revenue from old archived threads," he adds.
