Tips for Promoting Products and Doing Affiliate Marketing

One of the best ways to get money on Twitter is to promote other companies and other people’s products and services. You can do this in two major ways: Product promotion and affiliate marketing. Getting involved in product promotion is fairly simple. Many companies will be involved with several platforms that help connect them to interested parties that want to promote their products. Affiliate marketing is offered through a variety of different programs, and many of them are fairly easy to join. For the most point, try to avoid the affiliate programs that require you to pay.

Here are two things you want to keep in mind when trying either of these methods of monetization.

Don’t post anything you wouldn’t truly recommend. Why would you waste your time promoting something that you actually don’t care about? You want to promote products that you’ve actually tried or products from a company that you get other products for. Going with the gaming example from the previous point, you don’t want to promote a video card from a company that you don’t normally buy your gaming computer parts from. Stick with what you know or products that your friends or colleagues have used and liked.

Make your posts unique. Unless the affiliate or promotional company asks you to do a specific tweet, you don’t have to stick to the script. Be creative, use your own voice, and make your posts stand out. The less fabricated that your promotional posts sound, the most honest and sincere they will be appear to be to your audience. That will increase the likelihood of your audience actually checking out the links and maybe even buying the products you’re mentioning. If they feel you are being insincere in your tweets, they may perceive you as being a “sell-out” and just ignore those posts.
