If you’re running WordPress, I use a plugin called Thirsty Affiliates to cloak, manage, and track my affiliate links (you have to pay Thirsty Affiliates for their add-ons if you want extra features). The free version is still good… just install the plugin and find the “Affiliate Links” tab on the left of your dashboard. Add the link name and destination URL, save it, then copy the cloaked version of the URL so you can add it to your Youtube video annotations.
These guys post in-depth product reviews and comparisons that are some of the best around. If you want an informative breakdown of whether you should buy something or not, The Wire Cutter is an amazing resource. Their Twitter feed links directly to these reviews along with great pictures, and it’s easy to see why they have more than 80k followers — they are a major player in affiliate marketing.

One of the things that I noticed earlier in the week about those who were promoting the affiliate product on Twitter (an AdSense tips product) was that quite a few of them were not normally writing about anything to do with AdSense. Adding a link to an affiliate product that has little to do with what you normally write about on Twitter is not smart. For starters it won’t convert and secondly it potentially will annoy your readers. If you’re going to directly promote products from Twitter make sure they are relevant to the followers you have.
Before you can expect people to follow you, it is important that you build yourself some credibility. Find those in your industry and begin following them. If you’re an affiliate marketer, for example, you can start following all of the companies you promote. But you should also follow individual people such as experts in your field. For example, I have a website called DogFoodInsider.com. On my twitter page (@DogFoodScoop), I follow all of the major dog food companies as well as popular dog experts such as Dr. Karen Becker and Cesar Milan. I also follow dog nutritionists, pet food stores, dog breeders, and anyone else involved with dogs. I’ll even follow random people who are clearly dog lovers and post a lot about their dogs.
When it comes to the best affiliate program, affiliate networks are a great start for those new to this marketing channel. Affiliate networks provide you with their own tracking systems, which makes it easier to start affiliate marketing for beginners because they facilitate contacts with affiliates appropriate to your niche. Using an existing affiliate network also helps both affiliates and entrepreneurs track how much in sales they’re generating. That way, you and your affiliate know exactly how much money he or she brought in for your business and how much commission he or she should be paid. Tracking systems provide a special sales link for the affiliate to track revenues that they brought in.

Amazon’s obviously a really big one. It’s an easy one that a lot of people like to use. So I would start with Amazon if you’re new to affiliate links. The other places I would check would be CJ.com, LinkShare.com, ShareASale.com, and ImpactRadius.com. They’re like the affiliate networks or the houses that house all the different brands inside. So you can find the Wal-Marts and the Targets or whatever inside those networks. So once you get approved for their service, you can just start applying to all those different ones.
One last thing to consider: even if your product listings point to reputable retailers, visitors might be confused or freaked out when they’re sent to other sites when trying to purchase your curated products. By being upfront about your affiliate relationship and how the site works, you’ll increase trust and remove any doubts they have about shopping with you.
Affiliate marketing has now invaded Hollywood? We know it invaded US politics in Washington as some politicians (current and retired) are silent affiliate marketers or in MLM. Maybe we can look forward to hearing in the next few years about more celebrities going from actors and actresses to home-based affiliate marketers. Wouldn’t that be something?
Posts without value are posts that will cause your audience to lose interest and the goodwill of your audiences, rendering your efforts of using social media for affiliate marketing useless. For example, on my social media platforms I like to have 80% of my posts as entertainment or education purposes only and only 20% of my posts have anything to do with promotions.

Skillshare is a platform that provides it's users with high-quality video tutorials that they can then apply in real life. With Skillshare, you can earn $10 in commission for every new customer that signs up for a membership or a free trial, and the software that Skillshare uses can track your referrals for 30 days. So long as you can demonstrate that you have at least one channel and audience that is aligned with Skillshare's brand. Skillshare is a particularly popular site at the moment, and shouldn't be hard to suggest to your audience, as they offer excellent tutorials and free trials.

Search Engine Optimization still works even in social networking sites. Most businesses often forget to use Twitter for SEO. Search engines today factor social networks in their algorithm when it comes to ranking websites. Hence, if you have the right keywords and terms on your Twitter profile and messages, then it would mean that you have this higher opportunity to get a better ranking in the results pages.
Add a link to your site to the profile. This will connect the account directly to your site. This will help you referring users to your site and boosting its discovery. And the same applies to the other end, so put some links to your Twitter profile on your site. Companies usually add social media links to the footer. After all, Including a link to your official website is a strong call to action.
As for the Social Searcher affiliate program, it’s fairly impressive. When you become an affiliate you can earn 50% commission for the first month’s referral followed by a 10% commission for every following month’s payments over a lifetime. In addition, the affiliate program offers 10% on second-level affiliate’s commission. All you have to do is post an affiliate link on your blog, social media, or website and send traffic to Social Searcher. And even if your referral doesn’t subscribe, you receive a commission on returning visitors for 90 days.
Basically, you’re just recommending certain products through your YouTube videos and when people click on your affiliate links and purchase products from the merchant, you get a commission from each of the sales you generate. There are many affiliate programs in which you can participate – for instance, Amazon and Apple Store have affiliate programs that allows you to earn commission by promoting their products.
What does this mean? In this case, it means demonstrating your authority and/or expertise in the subject area on which your marketing will focus. So if you are looking to sell online poker affiliate programs, link to good-quality news content that you have written yourself, or that you have seen on a trusted source, and give your readers something they did not have, or did not know, before. This is a good, positive, way to establish your brand.
I am brand new to Twitter. As a fellow affiliate and owner of an Advertising Web site, i am not sure what to think about twitter as yet? I would like to be able to be constructive and add value to those people that need help establishing there own campains or affiliate selling. If anyone decides they would like to check my site and see if there is a product or tool that you would like to use then go for it.

In this age of interconnectedness, people will be more likely to click your link and buy an affiliate product if they feel a special bond with you. That goes back to the old rule of affiliate marketing: don’t be a salesperson, be a friend! You’re much more likely to listen to the recommendations from a friend. So choose an appropriate product, test it yourself, create good content, explain why the product is actually useful and market it on social media by engaging and growing. That’s the way to success.
You can make money on YouTube by doing affiliate marketing, which is including links to products you review and use in your videos that will track a purchase. If someone makes a purchase using your affiliate link, you receive a small commission for the sale. Melea is an expert in affiliate marketing and joins us to give us some tips for how to make money on YouTube with affiliate links.

Multiple Twitter Identities.  We have noticed that affiliates using Twitter often maintain multiple Twitter identities.  Based on data pulled for the second week in November 2011, 75% of the affiliates found on Twitter maintain more than one Twitter alias. They do this for several reasons:  to re-tweet their own posts under different user names in order to drive up a tweet’s popularity; to tweet the same thing over again without appearing redundant; and to follow themselves to ‘seed’ a follower list.
Affiliate links were once just links. Remember that. The purpose of having links in any content (and the reason why affiliate marketing works) is because they are useful. They make purchasing the things we want easier. Don’t abuse your online platform by filling your page with spammy, pointless affiliate links. Be sure to create that quality content and only include them when and where they add value. It’s a balance that, when found, makes your viewers happier and earns you more commissions.
This article will help explain how you can go from no followers to literally thousands of followers on twitter in a very short period of time. If you’re a website owner, it is perfectly reasonable to expect Twitter to become your #1 traffic source. No longer will you be at the mercy of relying on Google or putting all of your eggs in the search engine optimization basket. Once you’ve mastered Twitter, you can master other social media networks, improve your email marketing, and at the same time continue working on driving free search engine traffic. With a diverse stream of traffic, you are building a REAL business. One that isn’t at the mercy of a single algorithm change or one traffic source.
Yeah. So I used to run a blog that I learned a ton about affiliate marketing with. And I recently sold that blog and came over to YouTube and started a YouTube channel, and realized that nobody was using affiliate links. And I was like, what is going on? Especially the huge channels weren’t using these, and they weren’t using them the right way. And I thought, oh, I’ve got to tell everyone that they can make a lot of money without sponsored videos. So I’ve just come over and started my own channel about helping people live the ultimate life for less, and been incorporating affiliate links and then showing other people how to do it.
When providing affiliate links, you want to do is discreetly but also so that the user will actually see it. You can place links in your description (mention this in your video) or even put annotations in your videos for people to click. I wouldn't spam your videos with links, otherwise people will just see you videos as pushy and trying to sell something. The best way is to appear genuine and honest.
People love to buy…we love to consume great content. However, we have to be warmed up before we do it. On social networks, it’s the relationships that sell, not the message. It’s really up to you, though. You can spam people and make a quick buck (maybe), or you can build credibility and build a successful business. In my opinion, taking the latter route is much more efficient.

In Twitter, you can send messages to anyone by placing an @ symbol in front of their Twitter name. This message will appear on their profile page. So, if you see someone talking about a subject related to your website or business, you can easily reply back to them and give them some helpful info. If they decide to re-tweet your helpful advice, all of their followers will see it. Simply sending @Messages can help give you a ton of exposure and you get to help people at the same time. A win-win.

Edit the Youtube video you want to add affiliate link(s) to. Click the Annotations tab and “Add Annotation.” Fill out the required info including the time you want that annotation to appear (obviously it should be when you recommend the affiliate product). Near the bottom, add your cloaked affiliate link. Apply changes, then watch the video and test your link.

Hi, Steve! Thank you for sharing this. You’re right, I shy away from making videos because I don’t believe I can make one. I enjoyed watching the video that you have prepared; it was very explanatory. I also visited Animoto and I liked it very much. I want to start making my own video now and I hope I will be successful in creating and promoting it.
If you use another URL shortening service, whether your Associate ID is included can really vary from service to service. Generally speaking, when using an outside URL shortening service, your Amazon Associate ID must be included BEFORE you shorten the URL. You should be aware that some services will add their own Associates tag to the shortened URL or remove your Associates tag altogether. Also, please be aware that some shortening services use their shortened URLs to frame the Amazon site. If the links you get from any service do this, or otherwise do not resolve to the www.Amazon.com domain in the address bar, you cannot use them in the Associates Program and you will not earn referral fees from those links.

Twitter isn't just for posting notifications of new articles and content, or affiliate programs. You will build up followers if you're sure to post additional tweets (Twitter messages) that start or continue a conversation. This makes you and your site seem more "human" and caring, and improves your image, if done right. Just keep the ranting and raving out of your timeline.
A decent computer. Making videos can consume your computer's processing power and RAM. If you're making long videos, doing lots of editing and recording, your computer will need a good CPU and a decent amount of ram. A good idea is to test your current computer out and see how you get on. If you find video capturing to be sluggish or video editing software keeps crashing, it's usually a sign that you need a better computer. Upgrading RAM is very easy and cheap to do; but a good high-end CPU can cost north of $200 these days.

You can also create high-quality videos about your product and then add your affiliate link to your video. Ensure that the link you add to your video is relevant to the product that you are advertising. However, if you want to increase your income by using youtube affiliate marketing, do not just make one video and sit and relax, make as many videos as you can to increase your chances of increasing your earning.

This is a fairly general Twitter tip but it applies to affiliate marketing. If you’re going to promote a product on Twitter make sure it’s highly useful to your followers. This is connected to being relevant – but goes beyond it. I find that the more useful my Twittering is the more positive feedback I get from followers. The same is true from blogging and interestingly enough it applies to the products I’ve promoted over the years. The best feedback that I can possibly get after an affiliate product campaign is from someone who bought the product and thanks me for recommending it because they found it useful. To me this is the ultimate feedback because it means I’ve not only made a little money, but more importantly I have a reader who is happy, who remains loyal and who is perhaps even more loyal than they were before I made the recommendation. This really comes down to smart selection of products to recommend – make sure that they are the best!
