1. Blog Post

If you don’t already have a blog with active users reading your content you need to jump on this right away. Blog posts are one of the best ways possible to share an affiliate link. They are easy to get started, affordable to set up and provide a ton of SEO value to your site. If you blog about content that you’re an expert in, the content is relevant to your audience and the content is not easily accessible anywhere else then you’ve hit the trifecta. Over time your subscribers will trust the free advice you’ve given them and will click your affiliate link to purchase whatever you are suggesting will better their lives.

The 5 most popular websites to set up a blog are:

 

2. Blog Comments

There’s a good way to comment on a blog post and very bad ways to comment on a blog post. You can respond to comments from your own blog subscribers and slip your affiliate link in the answer if it is relevant. You can also respond to comments on other popular blogs in your niche. You need to be careful doing this as it can come off as spam and your comment might get removed. But if the author can clearly see you’re trying to help their users they might be ok with it. There is a big problem with bots spamming the comment sections of blogs. So you need to ensure you’re putting the user first and only sharing your affiliate link if it is beneficial to them.

4. Craigslist Ad

Craigslist is one of the largest classified ad websites on the internet. Millions of people around the world flock to Craigslist to view classified ads in their city every day. It is also the perfect spot to advertise whatever product or service you’re offering to potential customers. Craigslist does have a rule that no affiliate links are allowed on the site. However, you can bypass this rule by funneling leads through a landing page first that promotes whatever you’re trying to sell. From there you can add multiple calls to action that link to your affiliate website. Presto! You’ve got a free advertising platform to generate thousands of leads to your affiliate link.

Dribbble is an online community for designers to promote their works of art. If you want to promote a new web design, logo, infographic, brand, etc then Dribbble is where you gotta be. If you’re planning to share your work of art with the world and your affiliate link relates to it then you’ve come to the right place.

6. Ebook

Ebooks are like long-form blog posts that are beautifully designed and contain a ton of valuable, in-depth content on a subject. Since this content takes so long to create and is extremely valuable to the right user you can either hide it behind a landing page and force the user to complete a form to get access to it or you can even sell it for a price on your website or sites like Amazon. Since ebooks contain so much detail about a specific niche it’s the perfect spot to include your affiliate link and educate the user why they need to have this product or service in their life.

7. Email

Email marketing is one of the most powerful marketing tools on the internet. Some sites say “email marketing is dead.” This is so not the case. Email marketing is very much alive and well. Don’t believe me? The folks at Salesforce found out that “Email marketing has an average ROI of 3,800 percent. For every dollar invested, the average return is $38.” Statista also did research to find that there are currently 3.7 billion global email users. This number is predicted to grow to 4.1 billion users by 2021. So yeah, email isn’t going away anytime soon.

If you are able to add a form to your website and/or blog to collect email subscribers this is as good as gold for generating affiliate revenue. You obviously don’t want to spam your users with irrelevant content that doesn’t matter to them because they will unsubscribe in this case. Make sure to always segment your lists to ensure you’re sending your emails to the right users that are likely to not just open and read your email, but also click the affiliate link to your offer.

8. Evergreen Content

Evergreen content is search-optimized content that is continually relevant and stays “fresh” for readers over a long period of time. Blog posts can sometimes become like tweets and don’t have a very long lifetime value on the internet. Evergreen content is written to be relevant long past its publication date, with search traffic growing over time. When you’re searching for a specific topic and find a very in-depth article at the top of the Google SERPs that was written a while ago it was more than likely a piece of evergreen content. Since this content is so valuable to users and has such a long lifetime value it makes the perfect spot for an affiliate link. You might need to refer back to it every 6-12 months to make sure it’s up to date, but otherwise, it generates content on it’s own.

Evergreen ContentEvergreen Content

Popular examples of evergreen content include: 

  • Original Research
  • Case Studies
  • How-to-guides for Beginners
  • Checklists
  • Resource List
  • Best Free and Paid Tools List
  • Expert Roundups

 

9. Facebook Groups

Facebooks groups are communities on Facebook that revolve around a certain type of niche. If you’re already an expert in a niche or just passionate about one you most likely are already part of several groups of Facebook. If not you can easily join a series of groups you’re interested in. Some of them are open for anyone to join and others are closed and will require access from the admin for you to join. Participate frequently in group discussions and aim to help as many community members as possible with your expertise. Over time you can provide your affiliate link to help solve users problems. Don’t spam the community with your link otherwise, you’ll likely get banned. Always be authentic and put the customer’s needs first.

10. Facebook Business Page

If you already have a business or personal brand you’ll want to create a Facebook Business Page. This is a great place to share updates about your company, upload new photos/videos, answer users questions, and of course, share your affiliate link. It can take a while to grow a Facebook Business Page and definitely helps if you have an established brand. One way to speed up the process is to pay for Facebook ads and direct users to your Facebook page. This can dramatically increase your reach to a targeted audience and help get a lot more eyes on your page. If a user is interested in your content they can “Like” your page and will receive updates in their timeline of content you post. Frequently update the page with new content and be sure to share your affiliate link in the pages bio and in relevant posts.

12. Guest Post

If creating your own blog is too much work for you then guest posting might be more up your alley. Guest posting allows you to create content for other popular blogs in your niche and earn backlinks to your website and/or share affiliate links to your offer. It’s a great way to capitalize on an audience that might have never heard of you and gain exposure from someone else’s audience.
