    A website or blog are great places to start putting your affiliate links. Getting traffic to them is the hard part. Building a mailing list from your visitors is another great source.

    You can use Keyword Spy Tool. At first look this seems, by all accounts, to be a paid apparatus, however, they have a "lifetime free trial".

    If you just want to promote naked links, that's going to be really tough because you're essentially spamming

    You need to wrap the promotional link around stuff people want--CONTENT

    The content OPENS the prospect and the value of the link CLOSES the prospect

    In a way, online marketing is like SPAM musubi - the payload (the part of your message that makes you money) is the spam but for people to want to EAT what you're dishing, you need to give them EGG / RICE / NORI / etc... in other words, CONTENT or ENGAGEMENT or some other VALUE

    For the easiest method to promote aff links in 2017, I suggest the following

    content landing pages with your aff links

    promote the content landing pages on FB groups

    Schedule your posts via MP or HS or other tools

        You build them


        A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

      What type of facebook groups and how do you drive the traffic? Do you have to create the group? Do you have an example to share? I'd also like some more information about how to go about doing this. Can you (or anyone) suggest a relatively recent and proven course that offers some sort of step-by-step guide to affiliate marketing?

    Build a like page on Facebook and pay for ads to direct traffic to your page. The ads will be cheaper because your ads are directing traffic to a page within Facebook.

    A like page can be a powerful tool in getting to know your audience. Once anyone clicks Like, they will be subscribed to your page. It's essentially a list.

    That's just one way of doing it and how i have done things in the past.

    Top affiliates always have places that they use to market anything they want to earn commissions with what ever product they are promoting. They have multiple places and they have $1,000's in their budget every month to market.

    So paying for traffic and testing different places is going to be YOUR KEY to success with affiliate marketing.

    Use facebook and youtube as a free source of traffic. For facebook I would be creating like pages and pay for ads to be directed to this page. Ads are cheaper because your like page is a domain of facebook.
