August 10, 2022Affiliate Resources4 min read

Affiliate marketing can be a very lucrative source of income if done right. There’s typically no limit to how much money you can make from this low to no-cost business venture. 


Getting visible to the right audience is the most important step to your success as an affiliate marketer. To help you achieve this, we have wrapped up the 7 best places to effectively promote your affiliate links. 


1.  Pinterest 


Millions of users turn to Pinterest for ideas and inspiration for a specific interest, and that makes it a perfect platform to get easily exposed to the audience that you want to obtain traffic from. 


Since Pinterest is a visual medium, it is crucial to create content that is not just valuable, but also pleasing to the eye. 


Pinterest allows the usage of affiliate links. You can either link directly from your pins to the brand’s website or drive traffic to your own affiliate website and then try to convert people from there. 


2.  Quora


Quora allows you to get exposure to 300 million monthly visitors who are highly engaged, providing potential high-quality traffic and leads for your website. 


The more you become established as an authority in your niche, the easier it is to influence users. You can accomplish this by creating a credible profile first and then posting replies (or questions) that offer valuable information to users. 


3.  LinkedIn


LinkedIn claims to be “the world’s largest professional network” with its almost 830 million members. According to Oktopost, LinkedIn generates 80% of B2B marketing leads from social media. 


If you’re trying to reach out to affluent individuals or companies, LinkedIn is the place to go. Keep in mind though that you cannot just bombard them with sales pitches. You want to make sure that your posts are filled with insightful content that meets their demands. 


4.  Podcasts 


The global usage of podcasts has increased by 42% since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Its growing popularity and adoption make it an ideal venue for marketers and advertisers. It enables brands to deliver their message to the right demographics in a more intimate way. 


Gain their trust by producing material that satisfies their needs and speaks to their intentions.


5.  YouTube 


With around 2 billion visitors logged in each month, YouTube is the second most visited website in the world. This not only makes YouTube a fantastic medium for expression and creativity but also opens up a wide market for monetizing your content.


Including affiliate links in your video descriptions is the simplest approach. There is no restriction on the number of links you may add beneath each video. Or you can also mention the links in the videos themselves.


6.  Facebook


Facebook still stands as the most popular and widely used social media channel according to statistics. Your target demographic is most certainly on Facebook, which receives billions of visits each month. 


The best strategy to expose your Facebook audience to your affiliate links is to direct them to a piece of your content where you describe the product and its advantages rather than posting the links on Facebook. If you send people directly from Facebook to a sales page, they are considerably less likely to click and make a purchase than if you integrate affiliate links into your content.  


7.  TikTok


Over 90% of TikTok users use the app more than once per day, and they spend an average of more than 50 minutes on it daily.


The intimate character of this social platform makes it great for creating trust and authority with your target audience. Lots of niches that range from fitness and fashion to home DIY and outdoor renovation are currently thriving on this platform. But no matter what your niche is, you can find and establish a connection with your demographic on this app.
