There’s probably a bunch of eBooks on this but I’ll try cover it briefly. I dabbled with free methods of affiliate marketing for a while until I eventually realized, yes, there’s a lot of money to be made doing this BUT you’ll most likely see results after months and months of your efforts. The great thing with paid advertising is that you can almost instantly get traffic to your campaigns/websites and see what works/doesn’t work.
Anyway, let’s consider you’ve made your decision and want to start with free stuff. Lucky for you, there are many options. In the recent years there’s been a surge of social friendly websites which, in time have built a large community of people. Basically where there’s people, there’s money to be made. From YouTube to FaceBook to Twitter and even GumTree there’s lot I see people making money. There’s no one way to do this so my advice once again has to be general or it won’t be applicable to some of the methods.
1) YouTube Marketing: For starters do this. Go on YouTube and type any product and the word ‘review’ next to it. e.g, ‘JustCloud review’ or ‘GoPro review’. Most of the videos that will appear are by affiliates who ‘review’ the product and provide a link in the description box to send you to the merchant website that sells it. Now, if you BUY the product through that link, they get money. Pretty cool huh? This can be an option for you.
