I've started affiliate marketing about 5 months ago. I have a site up in the outdoors niche similar to REI, EMS, etc. I post rich content, have a YouTube channel where I actually make infield video review for the products that I sell from Amazon and actually own and use. I have a Facebook Page, Instagram, and Twitter account which is updated regularly, especially my Instagram account. I get likes, followers but no sales.
I'm not exactly sure what I am doing wrong. I just switched over to a VPS SSD server to speed my site up for my users experience. It's really fast. I don't expect to see returns overnight but I would at least want to see some sales or clicks to Amazon for what I am doing.
In terms of Advertising these are the mediums that I use... Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram for the Image of the product that I actually own and my YouTube channel as well. I would love to get some tips or feedback on how I can gain more views, clicks and turn that into actual sales. Users can also buy from my website and when added to the cart becomes an Amazon checkout. I set it up very fluid and clean and the site is awesome I think.
Should I be doing paid advertising for the products I am trying to sell off Amazon even though I'm not getting paid? Should I be running (Facebook ad's, Adwords, etc?) All help will be greatly appreciated.
