Affiliate marketing is one of the few businesses that can help you generate passive income. And by joining some high tickets affiliate programs that have recurring commissions, you will get paid recurringly for the products you sold.
At the start, affiliate marketing can be quite clumsy and it might feel difficult to get your first sale but it’s worth the time and work when you start getting sales.
In this post, I’m going to share with you some of the most converting platforms to promote affiliate links and generate your first sale.
Let’s get started.
Medium is a great platform to promote your affiliate offers.
If you’re into digital marketing for some time, you may have heard of Medium or founds articles of Medium on Google’s 1st page.
To those who don’t know what Medium is, it is open for all online publication where you can create an account and publish your own content.
The fact that Medium is a great place for promoting affiliate offers is due to the number of visitors it gets every month.
It is also very easy to rank your SEO-based content on Google by publishing it on Medium due to the number of high-quality backlinks it has.
You can write content on your affiliate offers and drive free traffic organically from search engines.
2. Vocal Media
Similar to Medium, Vocal Media is a social publishing platform where writers get paid for writing articles.
Vocal Media was established in 2016 and is growing rapidly.
The best part about Vocal Media is you get paid $3.14 for every 1000 reads and they also provide challenges with Prize pools above $1000 for every challenge. That means you can earn extra money by participating in challenges and add your affiliate links as well.
You may face difficulty ranking your Vocal Media’s content on Google but you can rank them on Vocal Media’s top stories due to its less competition and get customers from it.
We all know Instagram, don’t we?
But have you ever wondered how high Instagram converts when it comes to promoting affiliate offers.
Now, don’t start promoting your affiliate offers on your personal Instagram account.
Create an Instagram account based on the niche of your affiliate offer and post 2-3 images based on your niche every day. And add your affiliate links in the bio of your Instagram account.
This way you can get visitors who are actually interested in your affiliate product, now you can target those people and get sales to your affiliate offer.
Pinterest is another platform that provides high-quality traffic.
And unlike Instagram, you can add your affiliate links to each and every photo or pin as what people call on Pinterest.
Writing posts and reviews on Vocal Media and Medium can be time-consuming. You can create image posts and publish them on Pinterest or Instagram and creating image posts isn’t as time-consuming as writing articles.
Pinterest also has 320 million monthly active users and 70% of them are women. It is also said that women are most likely to convert compared to men.
This creates an excellent opportunity for you as an affiliate marketer to promote your affiliate offers.
The last but not the least platform is Reddit.
Reddit is a social news platform that allows users to discuss and vote on content that other users have submitted.
This is the best place to find your ideal customers who are most likely to purchase your products.
You can join different subreddits of your targeted niche and provide your views on it.
After providing value to the subreddit, you can add your affiliate links and get sales from it.
Disclaimer- Before promoting your affiliate links, make sure to check the subreddit’s rules and regulations. And if the subreddit allows affiliate links, you can provide value to the subreddit and share your affiliate links to it.
The affiliate marketing environment keeps changing and it’s always necessary for you to keep up with the trend.
And of course, you can promote multiple affiliate products with your generated link but keep in mind that you don’t overdo it. Overdoing will simply cause confusion to the reader and might also create organizing problems.
Finally, always remember to keep your visitors first. Making a promotion link to which you won’t receive any action from the visitors is simply a waste of time. So, It’s your job to understand their needs and requirements to turn them into loyal customers.
