How to Make Your First Affiliate Sale in 12 Hours
Honestly, if I were you and looking for a FREE avenue to promote my affiliate products and make a few sales in the first 12 hours, I would straight jump onto using social networking sites, namely Facebook and Instagram. Facebook and Instagram Marketing Strategies are highly effective when it comes to generating audience engagement.
Now, let’s look into these steps into more closer detail.
Now whenever I think about promoting affiliate products using Facebook, I would first like to create a nice Facebook page targeting a specific niche like weight loss, make money online, e-commerce products, etc. You need to create a dedicated Facebook page targeting an affiliate niche program which you would like to promote. Also, keep posting valuable content on your Facebook page, i.e. valuable content posts related to your niche product.
Below is a sample of one of my Facebook pages targeting the money making affiliate niche:
Make sure NOT TO SPAM your Facebook page with your affiliate links, it will just not look professional and there is a high probability chance that Facebook may BAN your account or Temporarily Block It! Always ensure to create a FREE Landing Page Website using FREE Web-platforms such as Wix or Weebly.
Note: A Landing page is also termed as a Squeeze Page where visitors are given an option to exchange their email address’s to get routed to the main Affiliate product website. In online marketing, a landing page, is sometimes known as a “lead capture page” or a “lander”, or a “destination page”, is a single web page that appears in response to clicking on a search engine optimized search result or an online advertisement.
Below is a sample of a Landing Page for your reference:
Start Generating Traffic for Your Page:
Now that you own a Facebook Page and are keeping on updating fresh posts, your next step would be to generate some decent amount of traffic for your audience/users to engage with your posts by clicking on the links. The more visitor engagement you have on your posts, the more likely are your chances to generate new leads and get sales for your affiliate products which you would like to promote on your Facebook page.
What I usually do is, I keep inviting existing and new Facebook users to like my page. You can invite new Facebook users to like your page by adding them as your friends who are already members with a similar niche group. Let’s say I have a Facebook page promoting Making Money Online affiliate product. I would search on Facebook Groups about an Existing Money Making Group having a strong membership follower.
I would then start adding friends from that group and once they join my Facebook friends list, I would then invite them to like my Facebook Page. Not only that, you can also promote your Facebook postings which you have on your Page on to various other Facebook groups, like posting your post on to different Money Making Groups, etc.
Remember, this strategy also applies to other niche Facebook groups, like weight loss, e-commerce, etc.
I hope your get the idea 🙂
Finally, how can I miss this one, it’s Instagram Marketing.
Instagram is by far the best social media platform to generate a huge amount of audience engagement and really it does not take a lot of hard work. The process is very simple, create an Instagram page related to your niche like make money online, weight loss, e-commerce, etc. and keep posting fresh high quality images on your Instagram page. On your posting description section, make sure to include your bio-link which should be clickable for your visitors to visit your mail affiliate site.
Here is a sample of one of my Instagram page:
You need to start following (make it a daily habit) many people on Instagram and this you can do by visiting other Instagram pages related with your niche category. Start following the followers of those Instagram pages. You will automatically start receiving many likes for your posts and eventually, it will go viral. Not to mention, include the right hashtags on your description page for all your postings.
Here is a sample of my Instagram posting with the required description and hashtags:
Before I conclude, let me give me one more Bonus Strategy and that is Starting Your Own Blog. You could create a niche blog that has lots of affiliate links in which you can write info on them and people can read and buy it on the spot. But just remember to get an opt in page to get people’s emails so you can get them involved.
The most important thing is to build a relationship with your list. Get them involved with you and they will buy. Writing good emails is the key and your email marketing strategy should be effective and eye catching. Try not to keep it SPAMMY!!
Hope this helps and Happy Selling in 2018…
