My Recommended Traffic Sources
As an affiliate marketer, traffic is essential to the growth and success of your business. The more targeted your traffic to your offers the better and consistent traffic is key. Fortunately, there are tons of different traffic sources available at your fingertips… most of which is free! I personally like to use a mix of free and paid traffic sources and have listed them below.
Primary Traffic Sources
YouTube – my YouTube channel is responsible for a large portion of my email list growth and many affiliate sales. I use Screencast-O-Matic to record my screen and Canva to create thumbnails. My strategy is keep it simple and consistent (easier said than done). I also do keyword research by typing affiliate marketing search terms in YouTube’s search engine to see what people are searching for.
Pinterest – I try to post all of my blog articles and daily social media posts on my Pinterest account. I’ve been slowly growing my audience and traffic with consistent posting (the key to Pinterest). I know it will be worth it because I’ve seen the potential… which is HUGE. Pinterest is essential a search engine in and of itself.
Instagram – previously I hated Instagram and swore I wouldn’t use it, but I saw how quickly I was able to get followers in my target audience just by posting consistently. Now my Instagram page is an essential part of my daily marketing routine and I’m learning new engaging content ideas along the way.
Facebook – I created a couple Facebook groups, one about affiliate marketing resources and the other where affiliate marketers can advertise their opportunities. These have proven to be a growing targeted traffic source that will pay off overtime. My Facebook page also generates some traffic but I believe my groups get more engagement.
MMO Traffic Tools & Sources
Since my blog is in the “make money online” or MMO niche, I use each of the sites regularly and am upgraded at nearly all of them!
NOTE: I only recommend using these traffic sources if you’re also promoting MMO affiliate offers such as home businesses (biz opp), traffic sources, lead generation, or crypto.
Mailer Automation Software
Traffic Zipper – Ever wondered… “How much traffic could I generate if there were 15 of me?” Well, the secret to massive traffic is duplication and the secret to duplication Is Traffic Zipper!
