Why using splashpages
If you have read how to avoid our mistakes, and the Amazon policy about spamming and the proper use of Amazon as affiliate, you know that splashpages are the only secure way to work with to comply not just with the guidelines of Amazon, as most serious affiliate programs have similar rules to protect their clients.
Splashpages do have more than 1 purpose. First of all they keep you out of trouble with the above reglementations, secondly they filter interested users from those which are not and last and least for now, they are save to use in email campaigns and traffic exchanges without damaging your searchengine prestige.
More about splashpages
Let's make an example first for a better understanding.
You may have created your first ashop page as described earlier and you have a link looking similar to the one below.
http://astore.amazon.com/philiptravelg-20 or you do have your own Amazon business page as in the example below.
You will not use those original domains in your email campaigns, for your facebook posts or anywhere else.
The point is, you do direct your visitors from a page which complies with all regulations, which is not hosted together with your own URL or ashop page together.
This technique applys for any kind of website which you might own to increase sales and traffic. Just like the splashpage for the Travel page of Klaus. It's safe, it's fast and it works!
