The DO’S AND DON’TS OF AFFILIATE MARKETING
I want to go over some of the right and wrong ways to affiliate marketing. There are so many people out there that don’t have a clue how to promote a product or service the right way. You need to treat this as a business and all business’s have rules and regulations. I have seen so many people out there just posting links on people’s twitter, face book, blogs and on craigslist. That is considered spamming and more than likely will get your accounts shut down. You should never just put your affiliate link on someone’s pages or blogs. If you are serious about having an affiliate business you will need to get yourself a website ,web page or blog. A place were you can send people to see who and what you are. People do not like seeing just affiliate links or shorten links. It will make it real hard for you to be successful in the internet marketing of any type without having your own web page, blog page or website. People want to know who they are buying products and services from. You need to form a relationship with your potential consumers. You want them to trust you so they come back and visit your site for future products and services. People want to relate and feel like you care about the service or product that you are promoting.
- do not post your affiliate link on someone’s tweets/twitter that you don’t know
- do not post your affiliate link on someone’s face book page that you don’t know
- do not post your affiliate link on someone’s blog comment section that you don’t have permission from.
- do not post affiliate links in forums
- do not post affiliate links in craigslist or back page ( they are taking spamming very serious now)
THESE ARE ALL CONSIDERED SPAM. NO ONE LIKES A SPAMMER
If you are serious about being a respectful affiliate marketer you will need to do things the correct proper way. Most of the companies will not tolerate you spamming. The will not let you promote any of their products or services any more is they get complaints or consider you as a spammer. If you are promoting a service or a product that tells you to post your links anywhere and everywhere. I suggest you find another product or service to promote because they won’t be around for long. Spammers give affiliate marketers and bad name.
Proper way to promote you products and services
You will need to get yourself a blog site, web page or website. You can get anyone of these for little to no money. The price of domains and hosting are very reasonable now. Word Press is a great place for blogs and websites. You can even get you set-up in going in minutes versus waiting days with some of the other domain and hosting sites. I recommend word press for beginners it very easy to set-up and you can have you site up and running in no time. You will be able to promote all products and services from your very own site and people will be able to build a relationship with you.
