“What is the best place to promote your affiliate link to get more organic traffic?”
And it’s the best place to promote your bare naked affiliate link. Where you cannot get banned, and it will convert like crazy and earn you lots and lots of commissions.
That place is YOUR EMAIL LIST!
I know, i know, super disappointing. Especially if you don’t have or don’t want to build an email list.
The problem with questions like this is they’re framed in such a way to impose the only solution the asker is willing to accept. It doesn’t leave room for an experienced expert like me to give advice on what i know works and what i know doesn’t.
Organic traffic is attractive.
But the naive beginner thinks that it is a solution to his aversion to spending money on advertising. In reality, anyone who has successfully built enough organic traffic to actually earn commissions has either invested significant money into hiring content creators OR spent significant effort and time into content creation…and often they’re doing both!
When i say “significant”, i mean, way more than your average typical noob has patience for.
Like we’re talking sometimes YEARS of slow build up against consistent daily effort. (Almost all the successful “influencer” type youtube channels, if you look close enough, have been around for YEARS and have for all those years produced vast volumes of content like nobody sane has patience for). I guarantee you they weren’t making ANY money of note for at least the first year if not longer.
A colleague of mine who did this some years ago built a 6-figure / year business (which may not impress you but sure impressed me) by publishing some 6-7 unique DAILY articles.
People who succeed with organic traffic methods alone are extremely patient and persistent.
And let me tell you something else…
If i were writing 6-7 DAILY articles to build organic traffic, the last motherlearning thing i’m doing is wasting that effort to promote some publisher’s affiliate link. I’d collect every gosh done lead i earned with my blood sweat and tears into my own mailing list, and i’d monetise the bananas out of it.
This noobie obsession with organic traffic tells me a few things:
He’s scared to invest into advertising. He isn’t interested in exerting any effort to actually build a mailing list (needs an easy shortcut). He’s in a rush to make money so he won’t have the patience or persistence for a purely organic traffic strategy. He doesn’t grasp that this is a BUSINESS and requires investment of effort, time, and…(yep, you guessed it)… money.
Being a cheapskate in advertising keeps him scratching the barrel for a long time. You can’t build a profitable business with this thinking.
PLENTY of fake experts are ready to cater to such fantasies and take your money in useless 19 dollar ebooks designed PURELY to upsell you into their “coaching” and separate the fool from his money by upselling him into more coaching.
I’m not interested in catering to such a mindset.
So i openly tell you, you’re DREAMING if you think you’re going to actually make even $1 by promoting a bare naked affiliate link with organic traffic and not spend significant, significant time and effort.
Anyone who does online marketing professionally will tell you traffic comes last.
That’s because it is simply a way to put eyes on something. And if you’re looking for a quick result, you buy those eyes.
But you can only buy advertising if you’re confident you can sell to some of those eyes you buy.
Because once you own even a SMALL email list, you’ll have an army of qualified “eyes” ready to look at any offer you have. EVERY. GOSH. DONE. DAY.
Even if you absolutely completely muck it up, you have a fresh “do over” opportunity with every email to do it right.
If you’re a noob and you’re ready to listen, i have here all the instructions you need to DOMINATE your niche and be a super affiliate.
