You’re probably reading this post and thinking, What? It’s New Year’s Eve. Valentine’s Day is a month and a half away. Trust me when I say this, dads, but it’s NEVER too early to start planning for that special day. You and I both know stores will put away their Christmas merchandise and roll out the Valentine’s Day merchandise within the next few days.

Dads, I can’t stress it enough. Valentine’s Day is one of the rare days in the year that you need to make perfect for the special woman in your life. Don’t screw it up.

I don’t know about you, but I struggle to find a great gift every year. Whenever this happens to me, I almost always turn to jewelry. Jewelry is almost a win-win for the special woman in your life – especially for the woman who loves anything to do with fashion. If you know her likes and dislikes, you can make your jewelry shopping experience so much easier.

If you are going to go the jewelry route, let me highly recommend a great company to you, Jeulia. Jeulia.com is one of the top jewelry online stores worldwide specializing in unique and innovated jewelry for every occasion and offering more than 1000 flawless jewelry in a wide variety including engagement rings, black diamond rings and birthstone jewelry.

As always, I strive to share only those products I highly recommend and/or use myself. I’m proud to be an affiliate for Jeulia. As an affiliate, I’m able to offer these special discounts to you today. Here are some of the great deals Jeulia has going on right now:

I grew up with a house full of Precious Moments. My mom bought them for just about every occasion. I can remember having dozens of them in our living room, and a few of them in my own room. Precious Moments became a part of our lives growing up and filled our house with so much joy.

Candy Club: A Great Last-Minute Gift Idea

All of my blog posts may contain affiliate links. This means that if you click on them and make a purchase, I’ll receive a small commission. Thank you for supporting Go Ask Your Daddy!

Ok, guys, we are in the final hours before Christmas Day! How does your gift list look? Are you struggling to find something for that special someone, but are coming up empty? Never fear, I’ve got a GREAT and simple gift idea! Imagine simply logging onto a website, customizing a gift that someone will truly love and watching their face as they get the gift. You don’t have to imagine for very long because today I’ve got the answer for you.

Candy Club: A Great Last-Minute Gift Idea

Hopefully, many of you have read my review over a great subscription box service called Candy Club. Candy Club is a monthly subscription service that delivers the freshest, most delicious candies straight to your door! With its incredible selection of delightfully unique confections, Candy Club guarantees something new and delectable to discover in every box, and creates sweet moments to share every month!

Earlier this year, I was contacted by Candy Club to receive a free sample of Candy Club so that I could review it and write about it here on the blog. (Read the review here) Not only was I very surprised at the quality of the candy, but I was blown away at how easy it was to customize my box.

Candy Club makes a great Christmas gift! And, there are some good deals going on their website right now. Not only can you get $15 off your first order (fantastic discount!), but you can also buy three and get three free!

Although I am an affiliate for Candy Club, I absolutely love the candy. I’ve been to many places in Europe that didn’t have candy that tasted as good as Candy Club’s.

I hope you have found everything for your Christmas list, but if you are still looking for a few remaining gifts, truly consider Candy Club. I guarantee your loved ones will be amazed by how awesome this candy is! And, if you want some for yourself, hop on over to their website right now and take their Candy quiz. The quiz helps Candy Club learn about your favorite candies.

Merry Christmas to all of you!  Have a wonderful holiday season!

Why You Aren’t Getting Clicks On Affiliate Links

All of my blog posts may contain affiliate links. This means that if you click on them and make a purchase, I’ll receive a small commission. Thank you for supporting Go Ask Your Daddy!

Hey guys! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Today, I want to talk about ways you can boost the amount of clicks you get on your affiliate links – especially when you are not a marketing expert or salesman.

Affiliate links and banners look fantastic if placed right on your site, but are useless without visitors clicking on them. You want to make your site one of the best blog sites on the web and take advantage of the affiliate income benefits that can potentially come along with it.  Whether you make your own blog or you have someone else make a blog for you, make sure you have the best affiliate marketing strategy possible to maximize income.

New to all of this and want to know how to start a blog? Join my free 7-day email course to learn the ins and outs of how to become a blogger.

Let’s get started…


You put too many links on your site

Have you ever visited someone else’s site and were immediately overrun with ads and affiliate links? Have pop up ads gotten you frustrated? If so, then you are a victim of too many links and ads. If your site is overrun with links and ads, you will detract from your readers’ experience. I usually close out of the website and look for another site with the same information just to avoid the clutter of ads. Posting too many links reduces the faith your readers have in you because they get the impression you are just there to make a sale.

Your links don’t relate to your post

If I’m writing a blog post about baking, the last thing I should link to is a link about fashion. Writing a blog post about one thing and linking to another doesn’t lead to sales. Make sure the links you leave are related to your post and are of value to your readers. Don’t link to a toaster if you hate the toaster.

You aren’t connecting enough with your readers

By now, I hope you have some type of email marketing plan and are actively using it properly. Connecting with your readers more than just sending them your latest blog post is a great way to establish real relationships and build trust. The more your readers trust you, the more they will trust the products you promote.

You aren’t monitoring the source of your traffic

Do you monitor the source of your traffic today? If not, it’s time to get started. Understanding where the traffic is coming from is key in maintaining your site’s success. The best plugin for WordPress is Google Analytics. It gives you all the crucial information you need to organize your affiliate links for the best possible conversion rates.

You aren’t writing powerful content

If you aren’t getting many, if any, clicks on your affiliate links, not writing powerful content could be a major contributor. Focus your content around a carefully chosen keyword that is known for boosting loads of traffic. I recommend Google’s Keyword Planner for this. Alongside proper keyword planning, make sure your content is valuable, focuses on your readers’ needs and drives them to making a decision that will solve a problem.

You aren’t incorporating a social media strategy

Did you know you can put affiliate links on Facebook and Twitter? Utilizing your social media accounts to boost your affiliate links can be done, but do so smartly. Make sure to disclose in the post the presence of an affiliate link and use popular hash tags to increase visibility on your post. If you have a strong presence on Pinterest, it’s a great spot to post your affiliate links. Most of my affiliate traffic comes from my pins. Of course, I don’t use Pinterest without the help of Tailwind.

You’re choosing the wrong products to promote

When you first sign up on sites such as Shareasale, it’s very tempting to join many affiliate programs. Resist! Only promote products of value and products that you use. The better products you recommend, the greater trust readers will have in what you have to say. Choosing the right programs to participate in is key in driving success and earning a solid income through affiliate marketing.

Kusmi Tea Review

This post contains affiliate links, which means I’ll make a little bit of pocket change to keep this blog up and running when you make a purchase through them. Thanks as always for your support!

I get pitched a large amount of products and services to review on my blog every week, and rarely do they grab my attention enough to get to the point where I’m testing them and writing about them.

When Kusmi Tea reached out to me a few months ago to test out some of their teas, I was immediately interested (and excited because I LOVE tea!)

Kusmi has been in business for over 140 years! It’s an amazing brand with an amazing story!

Kusmi was kind enough to send me a package full of free samples to try in exchange for my honesty review. In my package, I found:

  • 5 cans of detox tea
  • 1 box of Frosted Strawberry tea
  • 1 Tea infuser

I’ve never been big into anything detox, but I was anxious to give Kusmi a try. I grew up where sweet tea reigned supreme, so for me to deviate from anything that is not classic southern sweet tea is a big deal. I absolutely love Kusmi tea now and highly recommend it for all tea lovers. I particularly love the Frosted Strawberry Iced Tea out of all of the tea samples I received. My favorite part is smelling the sweet aroma while the tea is steeping in the kettle.

If you haven’t given Kusmi Tea a try, visit their website today and check out all the wonderful varieties of tea they have available for purchase.

You can also visit Amazon.com for tons of Kusmi products.
