1. How to promote affiliate links with social networking (facebook, twitter, pinterest etc.).
About 1.28 billion people log onto their Facebook accounts every day . In Europe alone, over 307 million people are on Facebook. Today, it is hard for you to see somebody who is not on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc. These websites are great to add your affiliate or CPA links.
One major advantage of promoting your affiliate or CPA offers using these platforms is that the audience are usually young. For example, age 25 to 35 is the most common age demography on Facebook.
How to promote your affiliate links or CPA offers using Facebook
Create a Facebook Fan page, post attractive contents so that you can get people to like the page. Once you have secured like 500 to 1000 likes, then you can start promoting your affiliate links or CPA offers.
One advantage of using the Facebook fan page is that not only those who like your page will see your affiliate links or CPA offers. Your links will circulate to all their friends too. You see my friend, Facebook fan page is one of the coolest ways to promote affiliate links or CPA offers. All you have to do is to try and get more people to like your page. The more viewers you have on your page, the more your affiliate links keep spreading, and the more they spread, the more money you’ll make.
You can also join some Facebook groups that are related to your niche and post your affiliate links or CPA offers there. For example, if you’re promoting products or offers that are health related, look for health groups on Facebook; join them and start dropping your affiliate links or CPA offers. Using this method helps you to target your audience, which is a good thing.
You can also use the Facebook comment box to promote your affiliate links or CPA offers. Although, it is not as effective as using the fan page, but hey! Feel free to give it a shot.
How to promote your affiliate links or CPA offers using Twitter
Twitter is another great place to circulate your affiliate links quickly. All you have to do is to build a huge list of Twitter followers and tweet messages about your affiliate products. But you have to be careful when you’re doing this. Do not over-do it, else, you’re likely to get suspended by either twitter or your affiliate company for spamming. You can post at most, 30 links a day.
Also, so that your followers don’t see you as a scammer; and finally, so that the value of the products won’t be degraded.
Another way is to look for people who are having problems that the product you’re promoting can solve. For example, if you’re promoting a product about how to quit smoking, look for people who are trying to quit smoking. You can do this by typing; “-http I want to quit smoking.” Your search result will be filtered, you’ll only see individuals’ recent tweets with this exact keyword – people who are trying to quit smoking.
Then message each one of them individually. Something like this… “Believe me friend, if I can quit smoking, then you too can. I was once a chronic smoker, but then I stumbled on this wonderful product. After applying the tactics as demanded, I finally quit smoking for good.” You can try it… then add your affiliate link. Trust plays a very big role in every business. Try and be natural and make this people trust you, that way, it will be very easy for them to convert to sales.
How do you make them to trust you?
Create different profiles on different niches. Don’t use one profile to promote various products on various niches. For example, if you intend to promote products on health, create a profile and make it look professional. Make it look like you’re a doctor or a nurse.You can use something like this; “health mistress,” then look for the picture of a woman that is very beautiful, use it as your profile picture. Now if you message somebody about weight loss, or about how to quit smoking, and recommend a product to them, they’ll trust you and buy it, because they’ll believe you’re either a doctor or a nurse, after viewing your profile.
You see my friend, if you properly implement this strategy, you can make $100 daily selling products from Clickbank, JVZOO etc., to various people with various problems on Twitter.
→ I will make time to expatiate on this strategy and Facebook.
Pinterest is another social media website through which you can spread your affiliate links. You can pin the product image and the affiliate link. Avoid the temptation of over-doing this, else, it would be seen as spamming, which will result to you losing your account.
2. How to promote your affiliate links with online forums
If you are an active member on forums, you should consider adding your affiliate links or CPA offers into your signature. Something like this; “signup to stand a chance to win an iPhone/iPad, click here,” for CPA. For affiliate products, you can use something like this… “Become muscular within two weeks,” depending on the type of product you’re promoting.
Note: Don’t go to a forum and start spamming all over, else, you are likely to get banned and kicked off. Nevertheless, if you add the link to your signature and participate actively in the forum discussions, gradually, your link will start getting clicks, and then leads, which equates money.
It is advisable that you use Forums related to your niche. For example, Digital Point Forums is one of the best forums for webmasters. And it allows users to add affiliate or CPA links into their signatures. Let’s say you’re promoting Webmasters related products, like email marketing, internet marketing, SEO products, How to make money online etc. What you have to do is to generate your affiliate links and add them into your signatures, then participate actively in the forum discussions, get people to notice you. And I assure you, you will generate a decent amount of traffic to your affiliate or CPA links on a regular daily basis.
3. How to use Youtube to promote your affiliate links
YouTube is one of the most popular websites on the internet. It gets tons of millions of visitors every day. It is another great place to promote your affiliate or CPA offers.
There are tons of free video making softwares, all you have to do is get one of them and make a simple slide show video using images and texts about your offer. Make sure that the duration is between 30 seconds to 2 minutes at most. Use a very compelling title for the video, something like… “How to win a brand new iPhone 7,” or anything trending at the moment, if you’re promoting a CPA offer. If you’re promoting an affiliate product, you can use something like this… “Burn fart and loss weight fast; become slender and beautiful again.” Although, it depends on the type of product you’re promoting; this is just an example. At the end of the video refer people to your affiliate links or CPA offers.
Note: Most users will be too lazy to type the link in the video, so, I strongly advice that you place an active link right next to your YouTube video. To do this, type the link in the description box when uploading your video. Make sure you add “http://” before your link, else, it will not be clickable. Type your link first before the rest of the text in the description field.
4. Using blog comments to promote affiliate links
Another way you can promote your affiliate links or CPA offers is through blog comments. It is one of the ways you can circulate your links. Although, not all blogs allow affiliate links.
In order for you to find out which blog allows affiliate links, go through the old comments, if you find some comments with affiliate links, then go ahead and add yours.
Note: The earlier you add your links, the more clicks they’re likely to get. so it is better you always comment early.
5. Promote your affiliate links with Quora
Quora is currently the leading online question and answer platform. It has tons of millions of daily visitors from around the world. Every now and then, people from around the world ask questions on various niches. This works better for those promoting affiliate products.
Be informed, Quora do not allow random posting of affiliate links. So what you have to do is to create a Quora account, select categories relating to your niche or niches. Participate actively in answering questions, that way you’ll be notified whenever somebody asks questions relating to any of your niches. And you’ll also get lots of followers, which is a good thing.
Now, after giving a well detailed answer to a question, add your affiliate link. For example, if a person asks a question like this; “how do I lose weight quick?” Answer the question by giving the person tips. If you don’t have ideas, search Google and get some tips. After outlining some tips to the person, tell the person to try out this product, that it has been proven to be working… then add your affiliate link. And always make sure that the products you’re promoting are of high quality and working as you claim, in order not to ruin your reputation.
NOTE: If you go to Quora and start posting affiliate links, they will be deleted a few minute after you post them. But if you answer questions and add your affiliate product as a recommendation, then you won’t have any qualm.
6. How to promote your affiliate links with Squidoo
Squidoo (squidoo.com) is a great place for you to drive search engine traffic to your affiliate links or CPA offers. All you have to do is to make sure that you use the right keywords for your articles.
Create your lens on Squidoo and write articles on the topic related to your affiliate products or CPA offers.NOTE: You are allowed to add your affiliate links or CPA offer links.
You can use Jaaxy (jaaxy.com) to find less competitive keywords. Or you can use long tail keywords. For example, if you’re promoting an email generating software, you can use something like this… “Buy best and trusted email generating software.” This is just an example.
7. Promoting affiliate links on hubpages.com
Hubpages is one of the best places to find rich articles on the internet. It is loved by search engines and it gets lots of traffic on a regular daily basis. This is also similar to squidoo.
All you have to do is to create your own hubs and write well detailed articles about your affiliate products or CPA offers. Make sure you outline the major features or advantages of the affiliate product or CPA offer. Then add your links to the article.
One good feature here is that you can get linked with other hubs that are similar or related to yours, in order to drive more traffic to your hub pages.
8. User email marketing
If you are an internet marketer, and you have not harnessed the power of email marketing then you have a long way to go. Email marketing has the potential of making you a very successful internet or affiliate marketer if properly utilized. It is one of the ways through which you can tap the goldmine of affiliate marketing in a massive way. With email marketing, only the sky will be your limit.
All you have to do is to build email lists. Remember the saying: “No good thing comes easy.” Building email list takes a lot of time and effort. But if you can endure and build a targeted email list of at least 5,000 contacts, then I tell you my friend, in no time your bank account will become fat and heavy, LOL.
When building your email lists, you have to target countries like… USA, Belgium, Australia, Canada, UK and similar countries. Don’t just build email lists from any location, pay attention to the location the emails are coming from. Target people from these countries because they are likely to convert 80% faster than people from Africa, Asia and the likes.
The best way to build list
One of the best ways to build email lists is through blogging. Although, there are some good email generating software out there. If you are not interested in blogging, then buy an email generating software and generate tons of emails.
One good thing about some of these email generating softwares is that you can set them to generate emails from specific countries. For example, you can set them to generate only emails of users residing in USA and Canada. In a nutshell, it gives you the privilege to target people from specific countries or regions.
But one major disadvantage of using these softwares is that they cannot generate emails of people who are interested in a particular niche all together. You will not know what the users of the generated emails are interested in, unlike when you build your email list through blogging.
For example, if you are a blogger and you blog about golfing, before somebody will subscribe to your email newsletter service, he/she must be interested in golfing, right? People who are not interested in golfing will not subscribe.
After you have gathered these emails and send them affiliate products on golfing, the users are very likely to click on them because they are interested, also, it will be very easy for them to convert to sales. Unlike when you generate emails of people who you don’t know what they are interested in, it will be hard for them to click on your links let alone convert to sales.
9. Using online free classified Ads websites
Another way to promote your affiliate links or CPA offers is through classified Ads. There are tons of free classified Ads out there in which you can utilized and use them to generate traffic to your affiliate links or CPA offers.
