A BO.LT of Genius

Posted by Ad Hustler | Posted in Affiliate Marketing | Posted on 25-04-2011

I was on Techcrunch last week and read an article about a startup called BO.LT – At first I thought it was just another URL shortener but it has a feature that may be a game changer for affiliate marketing.

You are able to give BO.LT a webpage.  It then makes a real-time mirror of the page and allows you to edit the page on the fly.  Imagine you see an affiliate offer that has a pretty decent offer page but you want to make a landing page with some more persuasive language on it.  Many affiliates already make landing pages that look similar to the offer page.  This would allow you to strip out all of the text and images you don’t like, add the text that you know will convert and then redirect them to the offer page.

It’s basically an on the fly landing page builder.  The only feedback that would make it better is if they would allow you to host the created landing page on your own domain.

Figured i’d share so you can check it out.  It’s currently a closed system that you need to apply to but I got in quickly.

  1. Very cool. I read TechCrunch pretty much every single day. Not sure how I missed this one. Sounds like a great tool.

  2. Glad you like what you see! You actually can host the landing page on your own domain by creating a CNAME record to point a subdomain to your BO.LT account. It is a feature of BO.LT Pro accounts.

  7. Wow looks like a very cool service.

    Nice domain name too.

  8. Very interesting tool – Thanks for the post.

    Hope i will get my access key soon! :)

  9. saw it on techcrunch too … interested to see how well it handles jquery/javascript driven sites

  10. Great post, I checked out these guys last week and thought they were amazing. I will have to use them more often

  11. Am I reading that right – they say the pro account for having your own domain is $2k/month? Surely that must be a typo…

  12. Wow, the service sounds great. Very innovative.

    Too bad I am still too newby to use something like this effectively.

  13. Matt, you can get started for much less! Please check our revised pricing.
