Updated: Apr 2

In the previous part we discussed what is affiliate marketing and why it is one of the lucrative ways for people who are looking for opportunities to earn extra money from home. In this part we will continue reviewing the places where you can promote an affiliate link free. The first two ideas were guest posting and e-books. Let's continue.


Social Media Platforms

This is perhaps, the best affiliate marketing tool in your hands today. Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube are full of users who are ready to purchase your product or service, provided you present it to them in the right way. Social media influencers are people who have accumulated a large follower base on their platforms who eagerly await each update from them. By becoming a social media influencer, you can promote your links to your target audience and gain high conversions. People follow only those pages or influencers who are experts in their preferred niche. If you build a large enough following in a particular niche, you can target users specifically to gain conversions.


Blog Comments

This method involves posting informative comments on blogs and articles published in your niche, thus guiding the readers of the article or blog to your website or products or services. The comment must be convincing enough to guide the reader to purchase the products or services that you’re promoting as an affiliate.


YouTube Videos & Comments

The number of people consuming video content over other forms of content is only surging ahead with each passing day. People prefer to watch videos to get their recommendations rather than read an elaborate article. You can leverage this fact to your advantage. Post simple YouTube videos that are also informative about various topics in your niche and insert your affiliate links in the description or the video itself. Alternatively, you can also post YouTube comments on other videos to convince users to purchase your affiliate products.


Email marketing

This requires you to have your own website or a blog from which you can gather the email details of your audience. After gathering this information, you can send them details regarding the latest posts on your website and also insert your links into the email. Since these are people who already have an interest in the products or services dealt with within your website, you can enjoy higher conversion rates by targeting this customer base.


Free Link Sharing Sites

All the above mentioned ways to promote affiliate links require some effort on your behalf. There are free link sharing platforms like I Refer You that do all the marketing for you and deliver your offers to the users who are most likely to be interested in them. Add as many links as you want, and capture the benefits of passive income.
