Social media has taken the world by storm and without a doubt, we have plenty of
accounts from many different platforms.
Originally, we use social media as a means to communicate with people all over the
world, but companies and marketers know the value that this platform provides for
business purposes as well.
Affiliate marketers, for example, have a website and blog but they can use social media
to promote their brand and gain a wider audience.
If you want to use social media to up your affiliate marketing game, you’ll want to read
further as I will tell you some strategies that you can use.
Don’t Post Affiliate Links without Shorteners
People are more intelligent now and they can spot scams and fakes when they see one.
Posting your affiliate links immediately on your social media pages will not give you any
positive results. If anything, it may negatively affect your reputation.
You see, Facebook, the biggest social media platform on the planet, doesn’t want you
to post any affiliate links on their platform. If you are caught, your post will get deleted
and you might get sanctioned because of it.
However, there is a loophole that you can exploit. Use URL shorteners and post redirect
links instead. This will help you mask the affiliate link so that your audience will have
peace of mind, knowing that it is not an affiliate link right off the bat.
Keep in mind that although you can do this without any repercussions, only post safe
affiliate links and nothing more (with the use of redirect links, of course).
Always Focus on Delivering Quality Content First
As an affiliate marketer, even if you are using social media to help promote stuff, you
must always focus first on delivering high-quality content. This may be in the form of a
blog post, an article, an ebook, a Youtube video, a podcast, an infographic, and so
Remember to use social media only as a means to promote your existing platform (i.e.
website or blog).
Use Social Media to Build Your Email List
Building your email list is crucial so that you can send timely updates to your audience,
as well as having another way for you to give them some affiliate links in the process.
You can actually use social media to help build your email list even further by posting a
link to your website from your own social media platform.
If you use Twitter, you can use automation tools to help you send timely tweets
throughout the day. That will also help you build your email list as well.
Only Get High-Quality Offers
I understand that in your quest to gain money through affiliate marketing, that there may
come a time where you just get as many products as you can promote as possible.
But, given my years of experience in this industry, I’ve found that the best results are
often given when you promote only high-quality affiliate products.
Not only will this do wonders for your reputation but it will also bode well for your bottom
line, as well as your partner merchants’.
Don’t Forget to Post Pictures
Images always get the clicks, at least when you are promoting something on social
media. It would really help if you find and post high-quality images of the products that
you promote. In fact, you will instantly gain the advantage just by doing it today!
