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 offers 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 when 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 offer 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 chance that Facebook may BAN your account or Temporarily Block It!
For those of you who do not know what is ClickFunnels? It is that it is an easy drag and drop funnel builder. You can also build a website landing page using the ClickFunnels tools. It’s super convenient!

Note: A Landing page is also termed as a Squeeze Page where visitors are given an option to exchange their email addresses to get directed 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 targeting your affiliate niche, your next step would be to generate some decent amount of traffic for your audience 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 offers 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 catering to the Making Money Online niche. I would search on Facebook Groups about an Existing Money Making Online Group having a strong membership follower.
Here’s a snapshot of a Make Money Online Group having a good amount of members –
Note: Being consistent with the above strategy is the main key here.
You may wish to repost your posts every 2-3 times a day on those groups to get some traction going on.
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 main 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 to 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, including the right hashtags on your post description page.
Here is a sample of my hashtags which I like to use on my postings:
Before I conclude, let me give me you 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 may decide to purchase your affiliate offer by visiting your main affiliate website.
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!!
It’s always a good idea to have an opt-in page to get your readers email addresses so you can update them with any new offers or let them know them when you come out with a new blog post article.
For this you really need to have an Email Autoresponder in place.
Having an Email Autoresponder in place:
A service that sends email automatically after one subscribes to your blog and lets you set email courses for specified time. I would suggest you can start a month free trial with Aweber.
I love running my email marketing campaigns using Aweber, as it allows you to prioritize all your email lists and helps you set up an automated email follow up series. After 30 days free trial, you will be billed $19 per month if you have a subscriber volume of not more than 2500 subscribers.
It’s very important to develop and maintain a good relationship with your email list subscribers. By doing this, you will be successful in promoting your existing affiliate offers to them or even up selling them with new affiliate offers.
If you have all this set-up in place, you could be banking anywhere between $50-$300 per day.
Writing good email newsletters is the most important key factor and your email marketing strategy should be effective and eye-catching for your subscribers to read.
In a week you can send 2–3 newsletter promotions to your subscribers regarding any affiliate offers which you would like to promote.
