7 tips on how to promote iubenda

#1: Share a story

Blogs are a great way to affiliate market. You can spend some time creating a piece of content, which will be read repeatedly by your audience and others. Even if it was created a while ago.

It also offers multiple content-sharing opportunities, meaning, after creating your blog, you can share it on your socials and via newsletters, for example.

Here are three content ideas that you can explore for your website and platform:

👉 Idea #1: Share your experience with iubenda! How did you find iubenda, and why did you choose to use this product? Any key features you really enjoy, or that made you choose iubenda? Why do you think others should use this product?

👉 Idea #2: Write a product review. Another great way of promoting a SaaS like iubenda is to write a product review. Get into the nitty-gritty of the product and showcase why it’s a great software to use to get your website/app legally compliant.

👉 Idea 3#: Create a tutorial on how to use iubenda. Share how you technically use iubenda and how to embed the software for your use case.

Legal compliance is a complicated topic, and using and implementing iubenda can confuse some users.

#3: Share iubenda in your newsletter

We at iubenda love to use newsletters to stay in touch with our users. Newsletters allow you to share interesting stories and more details than social media. And since users sign up to receive your emails, they pay more attention than on social media or other platforms. Moreover, a newsletter is also the perfect place to add your affiliate link!

So, if you’re sending out a newsletter, remember to keep it entertaining and engaging with graphics and the right wording.

💡 Here is an example provided by us that you can freely use to share iubenda with your audience.

#4: Post on social media

Social media is a great tool for promoting affiliate links. However, make sure that you are not spamming your followers with your affiliate link ten times a day.

Adhere to the rules of social media. Post relevant, interesting and engaging content, by sharing a story, instead of just an “ad”. Tell your audience why you are suggesting what you are suggesting and pair it with beautiful graphics. This is also a good place to mention that all your recommended friends will get a 10% discount.

We, at iubenda are continuously sharing social media graphics with you to make it easier to share! Click here to find some graphics and copy that you can use immediately to share iubenda with.

#5: Word of mouth

One of the best ways to recommend a product will and will always be by word of mouth. If your friend or client is talking about setting up a website and how to deal with compliance issues, you can easily recommend iubenda.

Of course, this way is one of the slowest ways of spreading the word, but at the end of the day also one of the most effective. Lots of our affiliates are agencies or freelancers who help others build websites with iubenda and who use iubenda for their own as well.

💡 On Capterra you can read lots of reviews by professionals.

#6: Have a dedicated partner page

Another great way of showcasing affiliate links is building a partner page on your website. There you can showcase apps, software and other tools that make your life easier.

When people, especially developers, stumble upon websites that look and work great, they can be curious about what tools the website owner is using to make the website work well.

#7: Mention iubenda on your podcast

If you have a podcast, it’s also a wonderful place to share your affiliate link. However, make sure that you are not just plugging it in without context.
