Cuelinks review – Complete Walkthrough & Monetisation Guide (Indian Affiliate Network)

August 17, 2019

Hey guys, Harsh here and welcome to another
episode of Shoutmeloud videos and today I have something exciting to show you. This
is especially for Indian bloggers and bloggers who get lot of Indian traffic. I am sharing
a way which will help you to make a lot of money and I am going to show you the proof,
I am going to show you how it works and the channel or the network which I am talking
about is called Cuelinks. Before I start, special thanks to Sunny who shared his dashboard
credential with me so that I can show you the income proof and all the lets
go ahead and talk about Cuelinks. So Cuelinks is basically a monetization network
which helps you to make money via affiliate marketing. Now the best part about Cuelinks
is that you don’t need to sign up for individual network. For example, you don’t need to
sign up for Flipkart, Snapdeal, Expedia and all these websites. all you need to do is
go ahead and sign up for Cuelinks, once you are signed up, you need to place few lines
of JavaScript code onto your blog and it will automatically convert all the links into affiliate
links. Now when a reader will come and read your blog, he clicks on the link, go to merchant
site and let’s say he makes a purchase, book a flight ticket, book a hotel or buy
anything from sites like Flipkart or Snapdeal, you will get handsome commission. you can
see the report from here, this guy has made, so this what in five months he has made about
1,65,000 which is a lot and this month only, he has made about 6,444 and that’s in 14
days which is again a lot. So this is going to be an extensive video, so I suggest pay
complete attention because I will share some of the good tricks that will help you to make
a lot of money with this. so the very first thing you need to do is
go ahead and sign up for Cuelinks, it will take a day or two to get approval and the
approval process is quite easy, so no brainer there. Once you are signed up there, you will
be inside the dashboard, so this is what Cuelinks dashboard looks like. now the very first thing
that you need to do is get the java script code that you need to put on your blog, so
what you can do, you need to go to installation and this is where you will find the java script
code, so all you need to do is place this java script code on your blog so that it will
automatically convert all the links into affiliate links. I will repeat myself again, this works
best when you have Indian traffic. Now if you are wondering how I place this java script
code for the BlogSpot, you need to edit the template and place this code, you can find
tutorial online. For the WordPress, you can use any of these two plugin; one is which
adds scripts to individual pages, header footer or header and footer script by Indian blogger
Anand Kumar. So you can use any use any of these two plugin and place the java script
code or if you are technically smart, I will google tab manager to add these java script
code. Choice is yours, so once you have added this script, Cuelinks will start working automatically,
instantly and whenever a user will go and make a purchase, click on the links, you will
start making money. Now think from this perspective, you might be looking out for merchant websites
or naturally to help your readers, now what if when a reader makes a purchase and you
make money out of it? That’s like an added bonus, right? Plus it’s not intrusive. You
are not showing any ad or you aren’t placing any banner so that will make your website
look spammy or too many ads. You are not doing anything else. It will simply convert all
the links to the affiliate links; it’s as simple as that. So this is number one, now
let me quickly show you the list of merchants that Cuelinks have. So once you are inside
the dashboard, you can click on merchant lookup and here you can see the entire merchant that
is using Cuelinks networks. So let’s say, you can search for individual merchant also,
Flipkart, let me search for that. You can click on the name and here you can find all
the details like how much they are paying per sale? What is the affiliate commission
that you will be getting? Now one thing which you need to know that is Cuelinks pays you
75% of the actual commission. They keep 25% which I think is quite reasonable and is industry
standard. Now here is one important thing, now if anytime let’s say, you want to share
a special deal from Flipkart on your Facebook, on your twitter or any other social network,
well you can generate a deep link also. I will show you exactly how to do that. So here
is the Flipkart page link which is ‘Deals of the day’ where all the good deals are listed,
so I will just copy the link. right now I am already inside the Flipkart merchant panel,
so here, go to the bottom and in this place, just add the link, click on ‘link me’ and
you also have an option to shorten the URL, so click on that and that’s it. Now this
is the link that will directly take you to the merchant, so this is your unique affiliate
link and you can share this affiliate link on your Facebook, twitter or even mention
it on your blog, when a reader goes ahead and makes a purchase on Flipkart site, you
will get a commission out of it. How cool is that? You get a commission out of it.
So this is the longer route and let me show you the shorter route for this. So click on
‘Resource center’, click on ‘link it’, now instead of individually going to individual
merchants, you can just simply paste the URL here, so here you go, this is it. click on
‘link me’, shorten URL and there you go, so you can probably bookmark this link and whenever
you want to promote any affiliate link on your social media site, I think you should
use it and I think this is brilliant even if you don’t have a blog, you don’t really
need to rely on blog to make money, with Cuelinks, it’s pretty awesome.
So Cuelinks offers another two ways to monetize your blog and I walk you through that. The
next one is ‘Widget’. So you can place a Widget on your blog site bar, so here, two widget
which is already there. Let me show you how to create a new widget, so you can create
two kinds of widget, you can create a ‘Coupon widget’ or you can create a “Deal widget’.
So let’s create a ‘Deal widget’. Click on ‘Create new widget’. You can name it anything,
so let me name it Shoutmeloud. You can select the categories, so let me say if you have
a fashion blog if you have a baby care blog, you can select one or you can select multiple.
You can select the widget size, 300 is the standard size which I would recommend. You
can use 300×600 or 300×250. My recommendation is use 300×600, its tall and it’s quite
visible. You can select the number of deals and click on ‘show preview’ to see how your
deal would look like. See how cool that is! I see like the preview looks cool, it does
not look ugly and plus it would make money. So that’s about the Cuelinks widget. This
will work very well for a blogger who has a deal website or if you talk about deals
or exclusive offers now and then, this will work really great for you. Now the new thing
that Cuelinks have integrated is called Cuewords which is a complete new stuff. Let me show
you what it does. So far, Cuelinks work really well on your blog when you are already linked
to sites like Flipkart, amazon or all the 600+ merchants they are partnered with. Now
what if you have not linked enough? So that’s where Cuewords comes into the picture. What
Cuewords does is that it automatically converts a word into a link, so if you have a word
like ‘Nike shoes’, it will automatically convert Nike shoes to a merchant URL and when a person
buys product, you will make money. so here is how to use that, you can just simply switch
it on, you don’t need to do anything, it will automatically get enabled with your java
script code that you have implemented earlier, you can configure how many words that it should
convert into affiliate link, I would recommend keep it 4-5 and not more than that or otherwise
it will hamper the readability of your blog. You can also select the color of the links;
it’s a good idea to keep the color of the link same as what your hyperlinks color are
right now, so in this case on my blog, all the hyperlinks are blue in color, so clue
is a good choice over here. So that’s it and let me disable this because it’s not
my blog, let me show you a quick demo of this, how this works. So this is a typical blogpost
on the left side. Let’s say, if you have a fashion blog and let me click on run. So
here, this links are natural links that you have already placed and its automatically
converting this links into affiliate links. So when I click on this link, this will take
me to the Jabong site. Let me show you the example, that’s it and now this Jabong link
and if a person buys a product there, you would end up making money. How cool is that!
Right? Okay so this is typically what Cuelinks is
all about, there is one more important thing which I want to tell you about Cuelinks is.
Let me go back to the dashboard first. So with the Cuelinks, they also send you a daily
email where they give you latest offers or deals that you can promote, that’s pretty
cool. You have so many things to promote and they will mail you also. If you don’t rely
on email, you can always login to your dashboard and at the bottom here, you will see all the
campaigns. So let me click on one campaign and show you what the offers here are. So
here you can see, they have an offer for Paytm, you go and recharge Paytm for 250rs and you
get 50rs cash back. So it’s not always about making money, you should also consider adding
value to your readers. even if say you are not making money with this, of course you
can make money but sometimes its good idea to focus on reader’s experience also, give
them something meaningful so that they can come back to you and with this deal, you can
always promote good offers and you can create a deal website. So this is one thing that
I really want to talk about. If you haven’t created anything substantial so far, you can
actually create a deal website using Cuelinks. There’s a theme called premium press theme,
I will share the link, I have written this about on Shoutmeloud and I will share the
link in the description, go ahead and use that theme and create your first deal website.
All you need to do is post about good deals every day, promote them on your social media
sites and money will start flowing on you and you can see the results over here. This
guy, Sunny, he made over 1, 65,000 and that is pretty cool. few important things, Cuelinks
will pay you when you have made about 500rs minimum, which won’t take much time and
apart from that they pay you Net60, that means if you generate affiliate commission today,
they will pay you after 60 days and that’s again industry standard and with that, that
is all about Cuelinks. If you have any question about Cuelinks, feel
free to ask me via comment section, if you enjoyed this video, why don’t you go ahead

I want clarification if I click to the URL of Flipkar from my Dashboard of Cuelinks merchant look up which I found copy the same and paste it in the resource centre and hit link me button and shorten the URL code copy and paste it to my website and if any visitor clicks the shorten url of Flipjart in my website and purchase any product from that, do I get commission?
