Promoting on Social Media

Hey guys, I hope my last post helped you get started and get a little idea of what affiliate marketing is about. No worries if you aren’t 100% because I’m still not but I know a fair amount.

I am going to share with you a few helpful tips to promoting on social media through free ways and also paid ways. I’m assuming that you use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc but only mainly to keep in touch with friends and watch funny videos but there is more to social media. It is a powerful tool to reel in visitors (and possibly buyers) to your affiliate offer.

Today I am going to share with you how to generate traffic (visitors) to your affiliate offer through Twitter. The reason why I’m not bothering with Facebook is because in my previous posts I shared with you Facebook Wealth Formula and Fan Page Money Method which shows you ways to promote on Facebook. If you haven’t already checked out them posts then I advise you do 🙂

Right, lets get to it. Twitter is a brilliant traffic source because, like Facebook, it has millions of people using it every day for personal use or business. We are going to use it for business. If you have already got a twitter account then forget about that one because we are going to create a new one but with your brand name.

First of all you want to name your business depending on what niche you are in. So for example, if you want to be in the weight loss niche then you want to name it associating it with that niche. Now that you have a brand name you are going to creat a twitter account. Put as much information as you can in your bio so people know who you are and what your purpose is. It is also best to have a website with a domain that has the name of your brand in it as it looks more professional but it isn’t entirely essential as that can be done later.

Next we need to build an audience by generating followers because without followers how are you going to make money? What you need to do is find other people in your niche, preferably with a blue tick next to there name which basically they are official and verified, and start following them. Now go through their followers list and start following people that are following them. Stick to following about 50 a day and eventually they should start following you back. In the meantime just post small tweets about your niche but not promote yet.

Once you get around 250-500 followers then it is time to start promoting. A word of warning, do not put your raw affiliate link in your tweet as twitter doesn’t like it and it don’t look pretty so you won’t get many clicks. Go to tinyurl or bitly to shorten your affiliate link to make it a bit more non-spammy. Then tweet quality content about your affiliate offer followed by your shortened affiliate link and soon you should start seeing sales. You’re not going to make shit loads of money from this technique but it’s a good place to start although there has been recordings of people making a descent living this way.

There you have it. Give it a go and see how you get on. Do not hesitate to contact me if you are stuck and unsure 🙂
