Hello.

I have a total of a million social media audience and email marketing didn't work so well for me because I guess I didn't apply the right strategies and now my savings were all spent on landing pages, aweber etc. I can't find any worth joining PPC websites and so I am not sure what to do at this point since I don't have money to invest. Any suggestions? :]

    You can use affiliate programs and put them on your social account and can also sell retweets. You may also try selling some products.

        Definitely check out clickbanks' affiliate marketplace.

        I put a link to it below, but if it doesn't work for whatever reason, just go to clickbank.com and "affiliate marketplace' should be really easy to spot.

        Click on "Health & Fitness" on the left side and you'll see all the available offers. Sort by 'Gravity' to find the best converting offers (the higher the gravity, the better).

        Good luck!

    Hi there, 1,000,000 followers is a massive amount. Can I ask you a few questions?

    What platform are your followers on? Twitter, Instagram both?

    Are they large accounts or a lot of smaller accounts?

    What type of engagement are you getting on each post?

    The only reason I ask is because if you have for instance large accounts 100,000 plus on Instagram and you receive a high engagement on each post...

    You can become an influencer and make a lot of money selling shoutouts, just a simple message in your profile saying "DM for promotion".

    Depending on your engagement levels you could receive more requests than you can handle.

    I have a friend with 3.4 million followers and he makes about $600 every single day from shoutouts.

    If however you have a lot of small accounts this will not work, you can however start to use these accounts to build up large accounts by giving yourself shoutouts.

    Then once you've reached around 100,000 in one account put the line in your profile and start selling.

    Just something to think about.

        If it is not working at all then you most probably have large number of spam/automated followers which are not gonna give you any help.

        I've never used twitter so I can't really help with that. But with your instagram accounts I can help...

        I would start using them to grow niche accounts in different niches like fashion, food and pets.

        You are far more likely to get people asking for paid promotion in these niches. You know people asking you to post about their new bag or a cute doggy jacket they are selling.

        Get a few accounts upto 50,000 in any of these niches and you'll have no problem clearing $100 a day.

    You can do Amazon, shopify, cpa offer, promoting mobile apps, selling shoutout, advertising local businesses and much much more.

    Which country are your audience from?

      {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11074410].message }}
      • Profile picture of the author MrProfit
        There are a lot of cpa networks that provide good cpa offers , like peerfly, adscendmedia, maxbounty... etc.
        If you are interested in promoting mobile apps (android/ios) you can go with yeahmobi, clickdealer, matomy, avazu, adwork media ...etc

        I recommend you to check a popular website called "offervault". It is like a search engine for affiliate and cpa networks. Search about your niche, and many offers/products will appear according to your niche. You will able be to see the networks that provide these offers and then you can decide which network you want to join.

        Hope this helps

          Helps a ton. I am on MaxBounty but their ads aren't something I can post on social media as most ads only cater to US people and to people from the other world it shows something else when they click the links. So I wouldn't want to confuse them Aren't there any sites like old MyLikes?

    Why are you so fixated on CPA? Odds are that's why you're not making any money from your traffic.

    CPAs are extremely limited and always temporary.

    Think evergreen.

    If you have a million then first and for most you can do a lot. I would say someone can make money with 50k active followers. I would suggest you do influencer marketing. Market other peoples products if you have a good engagement rate.

  • Profile picture of the author Hellome12
    To be honest i don't worry about email marketing. I just feel like in a way it's too much to deal with. Yeah people do say the money is in the list but you have to really take time with it so much and I just don't really ever see the joy in it. If you have that big of a following really you could have a website with it and post your affiliate offer on there. With you having that much of a following you should be able to also get traffic from that. Anything in a way could be turned into a business. Especially social media with a good engagement it's golden.

      • Profile picture of the author Hellome12
        No you could start with a free site. Then whenever you get about $20 you could buy your domain. Then blue host is like $3 a month or so. What's the Instagram name if you don't mind sharing?

    Hello,
    Well you have a lots of audience must say!

    The exact reasons of your situation could many, but what I know about successful email marketing is that you need to teach your audience from first day when they joined you to expect a promotion from you.

    You need to build a great relationship with by providing great free info, knowledge of the niche sometimes also.

    Focus on Value and only value sharing with your audience. Be an authority and expert in front of your audience so that they look upto for solution.

    Hope you like my views. Best wishes from me but just don't give up now. You have huge audience, use it.

    Hey Gina...it all depends on which social media platform you have your followers...if you have got such a strong following on Facebook, Twitter, G+, Linkedin, Pinterest, or Instagram, you should consider starting your own website or blog...and then diverting all your followers to it! After then you can simply apply for affiliate programs preferably Amazon, Google Adsense, and ClickBank in first place.

      I so want my own website. But I imagine Adsense takes months and months to get approved and I would need to spend money to run a site. If I get disapproved it'll all be wasted again.

    How many subscribers did you get on your list?

    How did you get them on your list (type of freebie or gift)?

    How often did you send out emails?

    What type of offers did you promote?

    Having the answers to these questions will give you a good idea why things didn't seem to work (for you).

    It seems like you are looking to advertise and build up your list?

    If you already have 1 million + followers, I'd recommend you get that traffic that you already have on an email list.

    Gina, you can sign up at Clickbank, JV Zoo and Warrior Plus for free. All of these networks have affiliate products that you can promote.

    On social media, the trick is not to link directly to one of these products. Instead, create a blog post about the product and link to it from your social site (FB etc.)

    something about his story does not sound right, you do not gain million followers without having money, and resources, and he continues to ask questions as if he has never done research on his own in his entire life, so why in the world would I ever believe this person is Bama Broke, and has million followers, and has no clue what to do with them. I would believe it more if he said those million followers were from paid fake followers.

    Why don't you try working on affiliate networks who can pay you for the traffic which you will generate on their content links. I have been working with ViralAux (affiliate network - they provide content links as per my FB page audience). They are paying well and on time. For every 1000 clicks which I generate for them they are paying me around $7 to $10. I am making daily around $400 - $500 from this platform.

    Others have just said click bank which is good but Facebook sometimes bans people for spamming clickbank links. With that reach you could sell shout outs.
