It’s time to announce April’s Sigma Beauty Classy Affiliate winner! This blogger uses great affiliate techniques and always remains classy and tactful. We would like to introduce you to Lais from Glamouragem (! Learn about her classy affiliate techniques below!

Affiliate Banner Selection and Placement

Lais has done a great job of using her affiliate banner to her full advantage. By placing the banner at the top of her blog, she has increased her chances of generating a sale. She chose a bright colored banner that stands out against the simple white background of her blog. By doing this, she has made her affiliate banner the focal point when you visit her blog.

Mother’s Day Post and Link Sharing

Lais also showed that she has stayed up to date with her knowledge of Sigma Beauty and the Affiliate Program. We designed three categories of Mother’s Day gift ideas, and Lais shared the information with her readers. As you can see below, she described each of the categories and used her affiliate link to lead the reader to the respective product categories on the website.

We love Lais’ classy affiliate techniques and we are excited to announce her as April’s Sigma Beauty Classy Affiliate!
