How To Get Free Traffic For Affiliate Marketing In 2020?
But before telling you how to get free traffic for affiliate marketing, I wanna say that…..
Traffic is not a Problem….
I am saying it again…..
Traffic is not a Problem…..
Pankaj why are you saying this……
Ok don’t worry….
Let I tell you….
Why I am saying this..?
Actually I see that a lot of brand new marketers asking….
“I don’t know how to get Traffic…”
“I m struggling to get traffic to promote my offer…”
“Traffic is my biggest problem”
No doubt…. Traffic used be my one of the biggest problem too….when I started doing affiliate marketing….
And I also used to say like this…
But it’s no longer now…..
And I don’t say……it anymore….that…
“Traffic is my problem…..”
Now I have known to the Traffic Secret… (Very frankly here I m Not taking about Russell Brunson new book Traffic Secrets)
So what traffic secret are you talking about?
Simply this traffic secret is….
“You don’t have Platform….”
Is this the traffic secret?
Come to the point….
Tell me the traffic secret…..
So here again I would say….
“You don’t have platform”
Yes you have heard that Right….
I mean if you’re really serious about building your affiliate marketing business and don’t want to struggle in your affiliate marketing business then very first thing you need to do is….
Start building your own platform where you can share your valuable content where you can interact with your ideal prospect…..and your ideal prospect/dream client can interact with you…..
Why I am saying?
Because, as there is a simple principle in our online industry and this is……
Nobody gonna BUY from you unless People Know You, Like You and Trust YOU….. Nobody gonna BUY from you unless People Know You, Like You and Trust YOUClick To Tweet
Keep that in my Mind…
So here through your Platform, you let people know you, like you and trust you where you share your valuable content….
Really…. again I would say….
Traffic is not a Problem….anymore….
Traffic is everywhere…
As you can see on YouTube, Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Quora, Pinterest….
There are millions of people who hang out all day long…on these above said Platforms…
You can see, people come on these platforms to check their profile, search solution to their problems, post videos, photos, watch funny videos etc.
If I am wrong then type on Google and check the data by typing keywords like “how many daily users on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin etc..”
And you will get the data….
BTW let I tell you in short….
What data I got when I typed on Google about monthly users on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinedIn, Quora etc.
Facebook reported 2.38 billion active monthly users as of March 2019 (Motley Fool)
There are over 1 billion monthly active internet users on Instagram (Instagram)
LinkedIn has over 630 million users worldwide (LinkedIn)
Twitter claims to have 321 million monthly users (Washington Post)
Pinterest has more than 250 million users (Pinterest)
Over 2 Billion logged-in users visit YouTube each month and every day people watch over a billion hours of video and generate billions of views. (YouTube)
YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world (SparkToro)
87% of marketers are using YouTube as part of their content marketing (HubSpot)
Quora has 300 million monthly active users (FoundationInc)
Point To Note: Some of the data I got from Backlinko.
Now can you see the hugeee amount of traffic on these above said platforms.
Pankaj I got it….
Now can you please explain me more about…..
How to get free traffic for Affiliate Marketing?
As I said above first and foremost…..
You need to Build your own platform and master on it. Don’t dabble.
In other words you need a Platform to get free traffic for affiliate marketing so you can promote your affiliate offer”
What Types Of Platform You Can Choose To Get Free Traffic For Affiliate Marketing?
Here are 10 platforms where you can go and pick one platform to get free traffic for your affiliate marketing business.
If you love to write then start with blogging in your Niche.
As in my case when I started doing affiliate marketing then first I started with Blog i.e. Whatever I Know.
I mean I started building my platform using Blog to promote my affiliate offer where I used to write articles/blog posts in my niche on my blog.
Even you can see today while writing this post just to get traffic I am writing this post on keywords or topic like “how to get free traffic for affiliate marketing”.
Because I see that Traffic is a biggest problem for any online business to promote product or service online.
So considering this problem I am writing this post.
I hope so this post will be helpful to get the ideas or ways to generate free traffic for your affiliate marketing business so you can promote affiliate offer.
2. YouTube Channel
If you love to be on camera then start with YouTube channel (which I highly recommend).
Yes, if you’re beginner or just starting out then I would highly recommend you to build your platform, start with YouTube channel.
As you can see in my case that first I started with Blog and when I mastered on blogging then I shifted to YouTube.
I mean, I created my own platform i.e. YouTube channel to get free traffic for promoting my affiliate offer.
And this is the platform where I upload valuable content (video) in my niche ( Affiliate Marketing ) with consistency.
If you don’t love to write or don’t love to be on camera then you can start Podcast using Anchor as it’s a FREE app.
BTW if you don’t know how to start a podcast then you can read this article here.
4. Email List
Yes, you can also build your own email list to get free traffic.
I mean, building your email list is also like a building your own platform.
And one good thing about building your email list is that…you can promote your affiliate offer for FREE to your subscribers anytime you want once they are in your list.
But point to note that first build relationship with your email list by providing great content and then you can promote your affiliate offer.
Yes, I would say… don’t be salesy….. provide value first and then promote your affiliate offer.
5. Facebook Group
You can also start building your Facebook Group to get free traffic for affiliate marketing.
As you can see in my case, I have built my Facebook Group i.e. Digital Affiliate Business.
And in this group I also share valuable content related to affiliate marketing ( which is my niche) that are helpful to the members of this group.
So that way first I provide value and then I recommend some of the affiliate offer to buy through my link…
Now you can see by building my facebook group, I am getting free traffic so that I can promote my affiliate offer.
I am not paying a single dime to get the traffic to promote my affiliate offer.
Yes you can also use Instagram to get free traffic for affiliate marketing.
Same thing I do here…
I mean, I first share valuable content on my Instagram Newsfeed using proper tags.
And then I promote my affiliate offer by having affiliate link in my Instagram BIO.
Below you can see some of the contents that I share on Instagram.
Even sometimes I share video content, my results and testimonial on my Instagram Newsfeed.
You can also use Twitter to get free traffic to promote your affiliate offer.
Again I would say first provide valuable content and then promote your affiliate offer.
So here you can twit valuable post or content 5 to 8 times in a day to get free traffic using proper tags.
Below you can see in the screenshot where I am promoting my blog by having link in Twitter BIO section.
Yes in the same screenshot I am also promoting one of the affiliate product i.e. One Funnel Away Challenge where I have pinned my twit in my bio section.
Even you can see I am promoting my blog post by twitting the blog post on Twitter.
To get free traffic for affiliate marketing, you can use Pinterest.
Below you can see in the screenshot that I use Pinterest to get free traffic.
And you can also see in the screenshot, I have monthly around 936 monthly viewers.
And good thing is that 936 viewers are FREE.
I have not paid even a single penny for getting 936 monthly viewers.
All I do is….
I post/pin some valuable post or picks on Pinterest with consistency in my Niche to get free traffic. That’s it.
Below you can see the screenshot of my pins/posts in my niche i.e. Affiliate Marketing on Pinterest.
So same thing you can do to get free traffic for promoting your affiliate offer.
Yes, Quora is great source to get free traffic for affiliate marketing.
As you know… Quora is one of the biggest online question and answer forum.
Here you can create your account and pick your niche and start answering to the questions in your Niche.
Below you can see in the screenshot, I have monthly around 1.24k views/traffic from Quora to my answers.
So what I do here..
Simply I answer to the questions that people ask related to affiliate marketing which is my niche.
So same thing you can do to get free traffic for affiliate marketing.
Point to Note: Don’t promote your affiliate link while giving answer to questions. It’s against Quora’s policy.
I would say, first provide value or answer to the questions solving the problems and then you can redirect them to your blog post or YouTube video to know more on a particular topic.
You can also use LinkedIn to get free traffic to promote your affiliate offer.
Here… what you can do is…
First provide valuable content whether its in written content or video content using proper tags to get free traffic.
That’s it. Now you know how to get free traffic for affiliate marketing.
Point To Note: If you’re a beginner then I would highly
recommend you, pick one platform wisely which interests you the most.
I mean pick One Traffic Source/Platform and MASTER it without any distractions.
And consistently start sharing valuable content solving problems of your ideal prospect or customer….on your selected platform….
Don’t try to learn every traffic source/platform.
Otherwise you will be overwhelmed with so much
Yes, very important to understand that it takes time….to build platform (normally 6 to 12 months time).
So have patience…. Got it…
Yes…I can say this from my personal experience if you do that then you never have to worry about Traffic in future again…
Now, let me know in the comment if you have any questions, I would be happy to help you.
One more thing, if you like this post then please do share it with your friends or with someone who you think will get the benefit from this post.
