Here are my top three social media platforms for advertising affiliate products that can drive massive organic traffic to your offers. These platforms will be leading in this area in 2019 and beyond. To succeed on these platforms you have to observe the T.T.O that’s Traffic, Trust, and Offer.
Affiliate marketing is not about spamming your links across the internet. This is a relationship business that thrives on providing value that remedies your audience’s pain problem and earns YOU that trust.
Pinterest - is kinda a search engine and a social bookmark site. It’s a large shopping list where people look for ideas, inspirations for their next new project. It’s a huge market for all kinds of niches you can think of. There are two ways you can promote your affiliate links here:
Direct Linking - you place your links in the pins and pin them on the boards.The second method is my best and the one I recommend is because it observes the T.T.O. Here you create informative content such as product reviews on your website and then pin the content to Pinterest to drive traffic back to your site and eventually to your product link.
Youtube - Free youtube marketing is a sure way to get started in affiliate marketing by creating product review videos. People are heading to Youtube every second to check on reviews before they make that decision to buy that product on Amazon, etc via your affiliate link. Youtube has huge organic traffic that you can profit from, just by giving value to your target audience that solves their pain problem. Besides getting your commissions from your vendor you can as well get paid by Google Adsense from the traffic you drive to the platform.
Webtalk - is the new platform that’s growing very fast. Since last September its users have grown to over 2m+ members and still counting. It has amazing features that are affiliate marketing friendly, unlike Facebook which doesn't allow affiliate links on its platform. This platform has users that are looking for new opportunities, tools to use in their businesses. One great feature shrewd marketers are optimizing for affiliate marketing is the personal profile “About Me Page Section” You place clickable affiliate links in this section and promote your links on autopilot just by providing value on the platform. This exposes you to many profile views and in google search engine. Here is an example of a profile that is using this strategy.
