1) Create viral news stories. So just find viral niche related articles on news sites with LOTS of shares and then re-write them, post them to your blog and then share them out from all of your social accounts.

2) Post viral videos. So instead of having to put in all the time and effort to create a video yourself you can simply leverage already popular and videos that are proven to be viral by simply posting them to your site and then posting them out from your social accounts.

3) Post infographics. Something about infographics just makes people loooove to share them and they are a dead easy way to create viral content fast. Once again you just post the infographic to your site, post it out from your social accounts and then BOOM… free traffic!

INVOLVED AFFILIATE MARKETING  - THE BEST

Involved affiliate marketing is where you’ve used a product or service, truly believe in it, and personally recommend it to your audience and within your content, as part of your life and your strategy for whatever it is you’re talking about. The product almost becomes something people “have to have”, because it’s part of the process.
It’s your involvement and experience with the product that makes that offer so attractive. It’s the most honest and most helpful.
Even within your eBook links are something you can’t do with a hardcopy book
.






Affiliate Mistakes Udemy Courses

1) Selling Rather Than Helping

Yes, the word “marketing” is part of the phrase affiliate marketing, but for the most part, our job as an affiliate is not to sell — that is the job of the sales page our affiliate links lead the reader to.
When I first started, my overwhelming (and totally naive) impulse was to fill my pages with words and links that screamed “BUY THIS NOW!”. I didn’t help the reader learn why they should have this product. I only wanted them to click a link which would hopefully lead to a commission for me.
People want to hear from other people when making a decision to buy a product or not — that’s why the reviews on Amazon products are so powerful. Those reviews are genuine feedback from people who (usually) have absolutely nothing to gain if someone buys that product or not.
When we talk more like an unbiased reviewer rather than a high-pressure salesperson, we will find we make more sales and people will come back for advice on other products in the future.

2) Too Many!

This is another big mistake I made when starting out — joining any and every affiliate program I came across. While I absolutely do believe in cultivating multiple streams of income when working online, there is a point where you have too much to deal with and it becomes unmanageable.
Choose your affiliate programs wisely and don’t overload yourself.

3) Not Testing

Whenever I choose to promote a Clickbank offer (for example), I put myself in the shoes of a potential customer and opt in to test the vendors’ follow up sequence.
I learned this the hard way.
Nothing breaks a reader’s trust more than being led to a promotion that will blow up their inbox. Put yourself in the shoes of a potential customer and see what will happen if they follow your advice.

4) Not Tracking

This was a BIG mistake I made when I first started out. I began my affiliate marketing career using free-to-make web pages on a site called Squidoo (and I still do this to this day).

If you are fond of promoting Amazon products on these pages, but would forget to use unique tracking affiliate links on each page.
