Hey, do you like to start affiliate marketing without a blog?
There are many ways to run an affiliate marketing business, and having a blog is just one of them. Some people like sharing through blog posts, but others prefer sharing with images or videos.
In today’s blog post, I will show you how to promote affiliate products on different platforms. Let’s get started!
How Do I Start Affiliate Marketing Without A Blog?
You can start affiliate marketing with a blog, Facebook/Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, Pinterest, or even Linkedin account. If you have thousands of followers or connections on social media platforms, it would be easier to convert leads into sales. However, if you have no social media followers, no blog/website, and no experience with affiliate marketing, it would be best to start a blog doing affiliate marketing.
1. How Do I Start Affiliate Marketing On Social Media?
You could find affiliate programs that fit your niche and promote the affiliate products on social media. For example, if you have thousands of followers on Facebook/Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, and Pinterest, it would be easier for you.
But where to find affiliate programs? Here are some affiliate networks with thousands of affiliate products:
- Commission Junction
After becoming an affiliate, you will receive a unique affiliate link for every affiliate product. Whenever people click your affiliate link, your affiliate ID will be stored in a cookie, which the companies can track your referrals’ purchases. This is the way they compensate you for your effort.
Before you post your affiliate link on social media, you may check the rules and requirements of each affiliate program. This is to avoid you breaking the rules.
2. How To Drive Traffic To Your Links?
Since I start an affiliate marketing blog, I have learned many traffic generation methods. The TOP one I recommend is SEO(Search Engine Optimization.) With quality content, you build trust with your target audience, and they will love trying the products you promote eventually.
As for social media platforms, they provide a window for answering questions, asking for ideas, or building community. Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest are good starts. You can share pretty images and share them with strong call-to-actions.
For YouTube, you can create quality videos and leave your affiliate links in the description. If your audience like your video and become your follower, they will purchase the products through your links. Here come your affiliate earnings.
Content is King. You cannot expect fast results without creating quality content for your blog, social media, or YouTube channel. Affiliate marketers should always take content as the top priority.
3. Be Patient!
This isn’t the BIG SECRET, but I think it’s important to share with newbies.
Doing affiliate marketing requires patience, effort, and persistence. Without keeping those in mind, you will face many challenges you cannot overcome.
There is no shortcut, loophole secret, or click-a-button trick to generate thousands of affiliate commissions into your bank account. If you meet any affiliate programs with such bold claims, they are most likely online scams.
If you are looking for a get-rich-quick scheme or overnight success, you will be disappointed after trying affiliate marketing.
So please be realistic and have a correct mindset before starting your affiliate marketing journey. Try to make a long-term plan instead of dreaming of quick money in the beginning.
Now, I am 100% sure you know how to start affiliate marketing without a blog.
- You can promote affiliate products on your social media. If you have many followers, it would be easier to make affiliate commissions.
- Content is King. You can create quality content and promote your affiliate links. Remember to help your audience before selling.
