Step 4: How to Promote Affiliate Products

There two primary ways to promote products.

The first way is to use Pay Per Click advertising (Google, Bing, Facebook, etc) in order to send website visitors to an affiliate offer. But I do NOT recommend this method for beginners. It is very difficult to find affordable keywords. It is also very difficult to get your ad copy exactly right. Save this one for later.

The second way is to promote for free through social media. I have some links at the end of this article below that will take you to additional guides. I have a guide for promoting affiliate products on Pinterest, Youtube, Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram. So pick your favorite platform and get going!

The third way to promote affiliate products is to create an authority website/blog and write quality content promoting products. Then, when people visit your website, they will click on your affiliate links. When they buy something after clicking your unique link, you will earn a commission. This is a fantastic method to create a passive income stream, and it’s not really that complicated. However, there are a few common mistakes you’ll want to avoid, so I would definitely recommend watching the free Affiliate Bootcamp video training to learn exactly how to do this.


I hope this guide has been helpful. If you’re ready to start your own affiliate marketing business, then check out the free Affiliate Bootcamp video training. As I mentioned earlier, I spent a decade learning the business. But you don’t have to. Affiliate Bootcamp will teach you everything you need to know in a few weeks. And it’s 100% free, so what do you have to lose.
