Top tips for using Purchase Links
Here we present you some successful strategies that helped other people significantly increase the monetization of their content. You know your readers and viewers better than anyone so can adapt and develop these - and the great thing about Paydemic is that it is so easy to use and flexible you can continually test and optimise as you go.
Giving a Taster of content to drive sales of full version
In the case of articles, it can be useful to provide the introductory part for free and place the Purchase Link after the introduction.This way potential buyers can sense the value of your work and become more eager to pay for the full content.
Use the Purchase Link next to the thumbnail of the picture or the trailer of the movie you wish to sell. A preview is always useful in attracting customers.
URL Shorteners for Purchase Links
If you are interested in more detailed reports about access to your Purchase Links or need a shorter link or QR code to place in promotional materials, you may want to consider using URL shorteners like goo.glopen_in_new or bit.lyopen_in_new.
Sharing Purchase Links outside of your website
The Purchase Link for Digital content, Print Subscription and Print Advertisement may very well be placed inside PDF or other document formats and even on printed materials as QR codes.
Programmatically manage purchase links
Paydemic allows programmatic access to its functionality through SDKs available for different programming languages.
You may create Purchase Links to offer access to online content or to trigger server-side actions when a particular link is purchased.
