Which affiliate companies should I work with?
We work with several affiliate programs, our most profitable programs are ShareaSale and BrandCycle. Both companies have easy-to-use platforms, allow you to create beautiful and functional advertisements and affiliate links, and they all pay on time.
Getting started as an Affiliate Marketer
Before sharing your first link as an Affiliate Marketer, check out the FTC guidelines for sharing affiliate links and earning commissions as an affiliate. Basic synopsis: Always disclose that you are an affiliate and will earn commissions on all purchases made using your affiliate link. One simple way to do this is simply use the words “affiliate link” or “ad” in your description. The disclosure must be made before the link.
Here's 15 places to share affiliate links in 2020:
Create a status update and share your affiliate link with your friends, family and community.
Create a free dedicated Facebook business page and share your affiliate link with your followers.
If you're active in Facebook Groups and they allow you to share affiliate links, drop your affiliate link every once in a while when appropriate.
Facebook allows you to share affiliate links in their ads, link your ad to your affiliate link and send customers directly to the program while earning commissions on all sales your ad generates.
Share your affiliate link in your Instagram profile and increase sales by promoting it via your Instagram following.
Same as Instagram, add your affiliate link to your Twitter profile.
This one is great, if you have a friend who wants to purchase a product you promote, simply text them your affiliate link! Easy peasy.
If you have a blog or website, simply create a post titled something and share your thoughts, experiences and what you've learned while using the program. Share your affiliate link in this post and then share the post everywhere you can think (including the places mentioned in this post).
If you don't have an email list yet, consider starting to gather the emails of your friends, family and community so you can share news updates about yourself, promote your affiliate link, and drive sales to increase your monthly commissions.
Did you know you can promote your affiliate link using Pinterest? If you have a blog or website, create an image and add targeted keywords, such as “how to go vegan” “Why to go vegan” etc. Then, publish your content and pin your post to Pinterest. This will increase your online exposure and encourage sales.
Better yet, create a video of yourself talking about the affiliate program and share your link in your YouTube bio and in the video description. Or, direct viewers to your personal website and share the link with them there. People LOVE watching videos and tutorials.
Share your affiliate link in your LinkedIn bio and include in your resume that you are an affiliate marketer! Present yourself as a professional and authority on the subject.
If you are part of any online forums, such as Reddit or similar, when appropriate share your affiliate link with the other members of your forum.
Google ads also allow you to share your affiliate link. Simply create an ad and with your affiliate link and earn commissions when people searching Google purchase using your link.
Some affiliate programs allow you to share affiliate links in your own PDF documents. For example, you can create a free downloadable PDF which includes your affiliate links. Then share this PDF with your audience. When they download the PDF they will essentially have a document on their computer that contains your links indefinitely.
