5 Quick Tips on Affiliate Marketing

By • 8 years ago with 9 replies already

Affiliate marketing is a great way to get more sales and increase your income. The more you promote your store and products, the more likely someone will purchase your products. Below are a few tips on how to improve your affiliate marketing efforts.

1) Do some outreach

Reach out to small and medium sized bloggers, Facebook pages, and websites that are relevant to the products you promote. For example, if you promote wedding invitations, look for wedding blogs; if you promote cat themed products, look for animal lover blogs. Build relationships with these content creators by offering to write a guest blog post or see if they would like to exchange social media posts.


2) Use and keep up with social media

If you’re not already there, get on Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter, and any other social media accounts that you think are relevant to your store. Keep your eye out for new and trendy social media websites like Wanelo and Polyvore.


3) Be timely with your products

Check current events, trends, and hot topics. What are this year’s pantone colors of the year? What paper and card types are people using for their wedding invitations? What big world events are happening right now? How can you connect your products to these events?


4) Be creative and responsive

Write engaging blog and/or social media posts that relate to your products. Ask your audience questions, run polls, and respond to their comments. Create hashtag campaigns on sites like Twitter and Wanelo or create group boards on Pinterest.


5) Check for current promotions

Visit the Zazzle coupon page at http://www.zazzle.com/coupons to see what promotions are currently running. Create and promote the products that are currently on sale. Don’t forget to check out http://www.zazzle.com/banners for our full banner inventory including,  seasonal, holiday, and home page link banners.


And as always,  DO NOT  spam your audience. Affiliate marketing is not just about getting as many links out there, but about creating quality content, using relevant keywords, and organic links. If you start over-posting your links on Facebook, Twitter, etc. you are likely to get blocked.

Good luck and stay positive!

  1. Thank you for all the helpful advice! I am just staring to promote my work on zazzle and I appreciate any and all suggestions on how to, what works,etc…. When I share my products on facebook, my product does not show in the post, another person’s work shows, do you know how I can correct this? I have been leaving comments underneath, “this is not my work, click on the link to see”, and I have never blogged before, do you have any suggestions about where to start? Thank you so much for your time! I appreciate your help! Have a wonderful day!, Mandy Myers
