My Affiliate Marketing Landing Page Tip: Decompile Flash Files

February 27, 2021 Posted by Tyler Cruz

It has been around 3 years since I last actively did any affiliate marketing (holy crap, has it been that long already?), but I decided to share this little trick I came up with that I used to use when creating landing pages for offers.

While I used it for my affiliate marketing campaigns along Sponsoredlinx Digital Marketing, this little trick can be used for many other uses as well where you need creative, so I thought it’d be useful to blog about. Keep in mind, though, that when I used it, the companies I was taking the media assets from were already giving me access to use their creative, so it wasn’t like I was stealing anything. After all, I was promoting their offers and products for them! So be careful how you use this.

As you may know, using a custom landing page (that you build yourself) before sending a client off to an affiliate offer is one of the best ways to improve conversion rates and will usually have a dramatic effect on your campaign’s performance. It is useful to try to incorporate the ultimate destination landing page’s look and feel as much as possible into your intermediary landing page to make the funnel and path as fluid and seamless as possible.

But this can be difficult when you don’t have all the creative sources. For example, maybe you want to make a new button that looks the same as the others on their landing page, but don’t have the source PSD for the button’s background and can’t change the text. Or maybe you want to use the same font it uses but don’t know what it is because they’re in images. Or maybe you want to use some sound elements from the product or service but don’t have access to any of those either. Well this little trick can help you with all of those things if you have a .FLA or .SWF Flash file to work off of that contains any of these elements.

You can retrieve images, movie clips, fonts, mp3’s, even the ActionScript itself of a Flash file if the offer has one by decompiling it with a Flash decompiler. It’s really easy.

Here’s a short screencast video I recorded showing how to use it (you will probably want to watch in HD full screen to be able to view it properly):

In my video above I used JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler, which as its name suggests, is completely free and is a small simple download and application.

Anyhow, it’s just a little trick I would sometimes use when building out landing pages (or banner creative) for affiliate offers that I think can be useful in other applications as well. I hope it can come in handy one day for you.

    Hi Tyler
    Not sure if this is a paid post or if you really wrote that, but glad to see that your are still occasionally blogging (and I’m occasionally visiting your website).

    Sounds a bit complicated; I’d just take a screenshot?

    Anyway, back to work and good luck!
