I found this site while looking for places to advertise my own affiliate program. I have the web site and commission engine in place. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best sites to advertise it?
What began as a way for college students to connect has grown into one of the world’s largest social networks. In turn, it has become one of the best marketing resources too. But in order to be successful on Facebook, you have to dig below the surface and familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of the platform and analytics.
So while people may not spend as much time on Facebook as they used to, they do tend to check it pretty frequently. One way to maximize your exposure is to schedule your Facebook posts to publish throughout the day, at times when your audience is most likely to be engaged. Not sure when the optimal time is? You can use our ViralPost feature to automatically schedule your posts to publish at the times your followers are most active.
Freedom to choose offers: Outside of a few no-go niches (gambling and adult offers), you have pretty much all the freedom in the world to plug in any offer or website, especially after you’ve established trust by maintaining a non-spammy, high quality channel. It’s still not the same as owning your website, but close.

Last time when I joined the Amazon Affiliate, my account was terminated because I didn’t had a single sale in 150 days. That’s the policy but I have one question, suppose we made a sale in 150 days , will this policy continue for the next 150 days or our account will active lifetime?
In order to give advertisers more control over the delivery of in-stream video content, Facebook allows brands the option to choose Placement Controls, Category Blocking, a Pre-Campaign Publish List, and an App Block List. Advertisers also now have the ability to extend their reach by running their content across Facebook publisher’s apps and sites on Audience Network. These publishers include (but are not limited to) Time, Inc., Vice, and Univision. Although publisher reporting is not yet available, Facebook knows there is a need for advertisers to see how their content is performing across all placements, and they are currently working on creating a system for reporting from their partnered publishers.
Always know the Terms of Service for the programs in which you are participating. For example, some programs do not allow you to include affiliate links in emails like Amazon Associates (this even includes links in posts that get sent to subscribers via email).
Hey Chris! I stumbled upon your site from a few people. I’m now interested in starting a niche business and grow from there. I’ve tried to target another niche, with keywords as a first timer, and still having difficulties targeting certain keywords. I would like to get a boost of motivation on starting a small and simple amazon style niche site. I don’t know if you covered this, but I’d like to know what sort of criteria that you go through when choosing a site. So far, I have found a keyword with the following criteria:
When promoting affiliate offers, just make sure you are fully aware of all the terms and conditions attached to your affiliate program. Some programs can be strict about how they allow you to promote their products. For example, some may limit you to banner ads and links only, while others will allow you to use paid advertising, but won’t allow email marketing.
this might be a dumb question but I am curious, when you have an affiliate with a product, do they actually send you the product? How will I be able to review it if I don’t actually have anything to review or show that I actually own? Or will I need to purchase the item to review it?
I am starting off as an affiliate producing videos on” Freedom” as my main topic…without the use of a website or blog. If you were in my shoes what would you take ? …also what forum sites would you join?
I like Animoto! It is a powerful to simplify the video making process. However, there are not many pictures built in so most of the time we need to supply pictures to make a rather compelling video. Anyway, video marketing is something that I will need to focus on apart from SEO
When people use their phones at work or any public place, they don’t want to draw attention to themselves by having sound blaring. In fact, 85% of social media video ads are defaulted to play on mute (either because of the settings applied to the ad or because of the user’s settings). It also allows brands to reach out to users who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The implementation of affiliate marketing on the internet relies heavily on various techniques built into the design of many web-pages and websites, and the use of calls to external domains to track user actions (click tracking, Ad Sense) and to serve up content (advertising) to the user. Most of this activity adds time and is generally a nuisance to the casual web-surfer and is seen as visual clutter. Various countermeasures have evolved over time to prevent or eliminate the appearance of advertising when a web-page is rendered. Third party programs (Ad-Aware, Adblock Plus, Spybot, pop-up blockers, etc.) and particularly, the use of a comprehensive HOSTS file can effectively eliminate the visual clutter and the extra time and bandwidth needed to render many web pages. The use of specific entries in the HOSTS file to block these well-known and persistent marketing and click-tracking domains can also aid in reducing a system’s exposure to malware by preventing the content of infected advertising or tracking servers to reach a user’s web-browser.
Affiliate marketing is great for making money but not so much in creating your own brand. It is okay as a supplement but not as a main source of income. It is better to spend the same amount of effort building your own brand. You’ll be able to make more money that way.

I hate that a lot of trainers who deeply care about their clients are struggling financially. They want desperately to help others and have the knowledge to do so. Yet they’re not getting the committed clients in front of them and aren’t making ends meet.
