Everyone loves the idea of using their social media presence to generate income for themselves. With successful affiliate marketing, social media can be an excellent platform for spreading your affiliate link. Affiliate marketing is a great personal online business strategy that you can develop. This type of business does not require a whole lot of startup costs. The focus is more on marketing, and less on business strategy.
Twitter can be an essential tool for anyone looking to make extra income from twitter affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing allows influencers to earn a commission for products they promote through an affiliate link. The job of the influencers is to spread their affiliate link using their social media presence and influence to generate sales.
If you are new on Twitter, it will be hard to earn any profit through affiliate links. At this point, it will be much more important to grow your following than it will be to sign up for an affiliate network. Investing in promotion, putting out relevant content, and building your brand should be your priority.
An affiliate link is a link that a company will give influencers to get free exposure in exchange for a commission on the sale to the influencers. If you have watched YouTube, you will probably see YouTubers promoting products or services with their sign-up link in the description.
Usually, the link will give you an exclusive discount on the product or service. The consumer benefits from a premium, the business benefits from free marketing, and the influencers benefits in the form of commission. Affiliate marketing has become such a big market that businesses cannot afford to ignore.
How to Get an Affiliate Link
If you have a sizeable social media following already, it is time to get sponsored through an affiliate program. Look at your analytics and see what your audience has an interest in searching. If you look at your audience, you will see a few things. Gender, age, interests, and more.
I have a strong male social media following between the ages of 18-25. I used this information to contact Tiege Hanley, a men’s skin care system and offered them my platform in exchange for an affiliate link. With this link, I can market a product I use regularly and earn an income using my Twitter.
Next, you want to make sure the companies you reach out to are high-quality companies. The last thing you need is to promote a product that is of low quality and destroy your online reputation. Use Google to find reputable companies and products to get an affiliate program. Here is a list of a few companies you can promote based on niches:
Dollar Shave Club – Male Demographic
Bluehost – Technology Demographic
Amazon – All Demographics
Bovada – Male Sports Demographic
Using Twitter Marketing
Now, after you have an affiliate link, it is essential to start spreading this link. You will want to use your social media to begin spreading this link. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram, are great platforms for affiliate marketing, but the one we will focus on is Twitter.
The reason I like to use Twitter is that I have had the most success on this platform. The way I use Twitter to get sales is to tweet relevant information to my product with my affiliate link. Suppose I post an article pertinent to men’s skincare, I will put my affiliate link in the tweet also.
Something like “Check out Tiege Hanley, the most uncomplicated men’s skin care system out there. Use promo code: JOHNTOCCI for 20% off your first order! Link: http://bit.ly/2I2cnJr” works perfectly. It is short, to the point, and advertises your product.
First, on a regular schedule, I will retweet this tweet during the busiest hours on Twitter. I check my analytics to find the best time to post. The best time to post is when your followers are most active, allowing for more impressions on your tweet. The more reactions your tweet gets, the more sales are likely.
Using Twitter to spread your affiliate link is a task that requires a lot of time. You will need to build a sizeable social media following, but once you have a platform, you now have a money-making machine. Your Twitter should be able to work for you and earn you passive income through affiliate marketing.
The more sales you get, the better your income will be. If you haven’t already, start researching some target-marketing techniques to help optimize your posts for your niche. Doing whatever you can to help get more sales is vital to your success in affiliate marketing.
