Where To Advertise AffiliatLinks

When it comes to affiliate marketing, one of the biggest points of confusion is

I know that it seems like there are a million places where you can advertise, but the real question behind the question is knowingwhere it iseffectiveto advertise affiliate links, because not every advertising medium is created equal.

First, you may already know thatnot every advertising medium out there is affiliate friendly.

If youve ever donepay-per-click advertisingand competed with the person who owns the product you are trying to promote (or somesuper affiliate) you have experienced firsthand howunfriendlypay-per-click can be towards affiliates.

In addition,Googleoften seems to penalizeaffiliate marketersby having very tight restrictions on ad copy and penalizing squeeze pages that affiliates like to use.

What Ill do today is sharethree tipswith you about placesproveneffective when you are wondering where to advertise affiliate links.

The first place to advertise your affiliate links is on Facebook.

Facebookis a tremendously powerful advertising medium for affiliate marketers and one of the first places to go when wondering where to advertise affiliate links.

There are two ways to use Facebook when wondering where to advertise affiliate links.

Placing your affiliate links on your own Facebook pagetakes momentsbut can really pay off.

The people who visit your Facebook pageare interested in you. They want to keep up with you, share news and information, and are interested in what you like and dont like.

Doesnt it make sense some of them might becomecuriousabout how you are making money online?

It does, and they will click. When they do, you could make a sale!

This istotally passive advertisingthatcosts you nothingbut a few moments of time. Yet most miss this idea.

When it comes to buying advertising, Facebook is actually very affiliate friendly. Although technically it is a form of pay-per-click, they are unique in beingeffective for affiliates.

The beautiful thing about Facebook is that their advertising issuper targetedwhen it comes to the ads you buy, and the ads arenot very expensive.

Heres aninside tip:Draw up an imaginary profile, some people call it an avatar, of the person that you want to reach before you start buying ads from Facebook.

The better a profile you can draw of your ideal prospect, the better a job Facebook can do in helping youmatch up to that prospect.

Facebooks ads are so targeted that you could practically reach any 30-year-old women named Mary who like the color orange if you wanted to (not that youd want to limit it quite that much!).

They do a better job than anybody Ive seen at helping youmatch their audience to what youre promoting.

So take a strong look at Facebook advertising and get really specific about who you want to reach, let them help you reach that person.

And be sure to post links to your affiliate offers on your own Facebook page as well.

The second place to advertise affiliate links is via solo ads.

Solo ads are ads in ezines that go out as a single blast, alone. Thats why theyre named solo, because they go out by themselves.

Solo ads can behighly targetedandhighly effective.

It just depends upon how you want to approach it.

The beautiful thing about solo ads is thatyour ad stands completely alone. It gets the full attention of the audience who opens the email.

Solo ads are 100% affiliate friendly.

Your ad stands alone, it doesnt compete with anybody elses ad, and ezine publishers who sell solo ads (and other list owners who sell solo ads) just love to promote affiliate offers.

They love for you to promote your affiliate offer through their list, because its profitable for them with minimal effort.

Its kind of like renting a list for a day because you make up an ad, you pay a small fee and your ad goes by itself via email to that persons mailing list.

One word of caution: when buying solo ads be sure you know how and when the person selling the ads built their list. There are many shady solo ad sellers today, so be sure to ask questions up front.

I would be remiss if I didnt share that the 1 resource for solo ads is theDirectory of Ezines.

Weve been helping members succeed with solo ads since 1997!

Another way to advertise affiliate links is to place ads on websites and blogs.

These could appear as banner ads, or text ads, or little buttons on sidebars.

When you are wondering where to advertising affiliate links, and you look at how many sites are out there, its easy to become confused.

So let me share one of my favorite sources with you.

The source that I really like for this is a website

BuySellAds isa marketplace of people who own blogsand own websites that get traffic and arewilling to sell advertisingto the general public.

Theyve taken that inventory of available advertising space, and theyvecategorizedandcataloguedit so that if youre interested in placing your ad on a blog that gets 20,000 visitors a month and its about recipes, you can do that.

If you want to place your ad on a blog that gets amillion visitors a monthand its abouthealth, you can do that too.

Sowhether your budget is big or small, whether your niche is wide or narrow, it doesnt really matter.

If you want to advertise affiliate mcan help you find places to advertisethat you might not normally find.

If you go to the owner of a big website that gets a million visitors a month or more and you try to buy advertising from them directly, sometimesyou might get the cold shoulder.

But if you go to a place likeBuySellAds, where that website owner has registered and made his or her advertising available to the public for a fee, then youll get placement very, very quickly.

Knowing where to advertise affiliate links can be a little bit of a challenge sometimes, especially when you dont have much experience or a big budget.

But let me tell you, there are some great places to advertise affiliate links, withreasonable costswhere you can get results without busting your budget.

Try the sources listed here, and dont forget to use that Facebook trick today.

I love affiliate marketing, and love my own affiliates too. Thats why I am committed to sharing what works in the real world with you and helping you find more and more places to advertise your affiliate links.

Because when you discover reliable places to advertise affiliate links you will have found a beautiful thing indeed!

Wow amazing. I actually promote my clickbank affiliate through fb ads but wish to add other means

Im happy you found it helpful!

Very nice article, I have been wondering on how to place my affiliate link on some sites but now I can relax and apply what you outlined below on how to go about it. Thanks a lot.

Great information! Just what I was looking for. Have you ever had any success with radio ads?

Ive not advertised for my own products using traditional radio. I have been on BlogTalkRadio, which is slightly different. The reason I stay away from radio is reach. I dont need to reach a local audience and reaching a national audience is too expensive in my view. I used to sell radio ads so Im a fan but not for my products.

So theoretically, I should be able to build a website with various affiliate links to products and accessories to that product, run this site and do everything in my power to bring in the most traffic and sales, and that will be a correct way to practice affiliate marketing? Right? Or should a different approach be taken. This is what Im seeing, any feedback is greatly appreciated

That is basically correct but omits two important factors.

The focus must be on building your mailing list. Direct linking to the affiliate programs will be a mistake because you will not be building an asset of your own (your list) or be able to follow up. Many times more sales are made in follow up than on the first visit.

Thanks for this post! Earlier i was curious where to promote my affiliate link. Thank goodness i got some ideas from your blog

please,i want to know how to put my Affiliate links on facebook page

Here is an article that might help you.

I jumped on board the Affiliate marketing platform, without having my own website I began to research on how I could market and advertise my affiliate links and then I stumble upon your article.

My question is, without having my personal website is it possible to promote my affiliate link using Facebooks paid advertising; that is, I will be using the link that originates directly from the the company that I am an affiliate of.

It is possible but not advisable. The 1 job we all have is building our list. The success is in the follow up. Do what you can to get a page of your own online and send traffic there first would be my advice.

I am brand, spankin new to affiliate marketing (havent posted a link yet). Main reason I have not posted a link is because I dont know how. Now, that may sound silly. I know how to copy/paste it, BUT when I get to a website, where on the page does one paste the link?

You dont really post a link to a website unless you own that website. To put your links on a website generally means buying ad space on that site (such as a banner ad) and then submitting an image and your link.

Thanks for the informative post. I am always looking for good bloggers to follow and learn from.

Thank you Lori. Happy to have you here.

That should be no problem. Facebook does limit some programs when it comes to advertising but you should be able to put almost any link you want in your status update.

Thanks Charlie, that was very informative. I appreciate you.

Good info. Will start using today. Thanks

Thanks for the helpful info. Ive been trying to decide how, where and when to post and advertise my affiliate links for six months now. Its been pretty much hit or miss. Thanks for the clear direction.

Hi Charlie, I went to the site too ,but there is such an visual overload of information its hard to determine what the process is to get started could you put together a short How to video on signing up ,choosing a typical site for marketing an affiliate product by way of an example etc on BuySellAds,?

Sorry I cant do that right now. But they do have good support and this article shows the step-by-step process.

Thank you for the information. I was actually looking at Facebook last night. Trying to figure it out.

Charlie, great article. I went to BuySellAds and got overwhelmed. I searched for affiliate marketers and was even more confused about how I could place an affiliate ad. Probably just my inexperience. You make info clear and understandable.

What you want to do is search for sites where the readers would be a good fit for the product you are promoting.

So, if you are promoting a health-related product then you want health blogs.

I just put an affiliate link on my FB page
