Generate more revenue this Black Friday with Skimlinks Shopping Galleries

Posted 1 month ago by Debbie Gainsford

Black Friday is the biggest commerce event of the year and Skimlinks has made the whole process of getting the best deals and offers from the leading merchants very simple.

We have launched the Skimlinks Black Friday Shopping Galleries.

Why Publishers should use the Black Friday Shopping Galleries

Publishers who add shopping galleries to their articles, could see an increase in Earnings Per Click (EPC) of +59%, compared to other commerce articles.

The latest deals and offers will automatically appear in the Shopping Galleries. So no need, for content creators to continually search for new deals/offers or to continually update links. It really is that simple!

The Shopping Galleries are now live and will automatically be updated, every three hours, from today through to Cyber Monday, maximising the revenue opportunities of this key period.

How Publishers are Using the Black Friday Shopping Galleries

A number of publishers have already started to promote and generate revenue from their Black Friday Shopping Galleries.
