Make Money With Social Media and Affiliate Programs

Make Money With Social Media and Affiliate Programs

By Sean Bridger


You've no doubt heard a lot about social media, and how great it can be as an online marketing tool. If used correctly, that's absolutely true. There are several steps you can follow in order to use social media as an effective part of your affiliate marketing strategy.

First, pick a niche you want to enter into. You want to pick a large enough niche that you will have an audience for your products or services, but not one that's so large that it's oversaturated. If the niche is too saturated, your site will get lost in the stream of content that already exists for that niche.

Now you need something to sell to your niche. If you can create a product or service of your own that would appeal to your niche, that's the best thing to do. If not, there are plenty of great affiliate programs out there that can help you to bring in some income without creating a product of your own.
Now, take some time, and give yourself a social media presence. Create a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a YouTube account related to the niche you are entering into. Each account should have a name directly related to the niche you're entering into. Take some time to consider the name of each account carefully, and while you're doing this, start thinking about potential names for a website.
The next step is to create a website. You'll want to register your own.com domain name, rather than a.net, or.org. The domain name should contain keywords directly related to your niche, so take some time and think carefully about what to call your new site. Generally speaking, it's a good idea to run a blog rather than a site that won't be updated frequently. Search engines favor sites with frequent updates, and blogging software tends to be very SEO friendly.

Once your new site is up it's time to bring it all together. Start using your social media accounts to promote your website. Post links to your content on Facebook and Twitter, and make videos relevant to your niche to post on YouTube. Update your social media accounts, and your blog frequently, and you'll start seeing a good amount of traffic in no time. As your traffic grows, you'll get more attention to your affiliate programs, and as such, you'll generate more revenue.
