I know a lot of you are already aware of the term Affiliate Marketing and a lot of you have already started working on it right?

So today in this article I will tell you my best 5 methods to start promoting your Affiliate Products with or without a blog.

While doing some research, I get to know that the main challenge that every beginner faces in its initial days of affiliate marketing is that they don’t know how to promote affiliate products.

If you are one of those people then read this article till the end and I will be sharing with you some of my personal methods to promote affiliate products and a secret strategy to earn 1000$ per month just by promoting affiliate products.

If you are a complete beginner then I recommend you to go and check out my previous post Affiliate Marketing For Beginners, it will give a basic idea about affiliate marketing.

Best Ways To Promote Affiliate Products Online

Here I am telling you some of the best methods to start promoting affiliate products.

Through Your Blog

This is the most common and best way to promote affiliate products online. If you own a blog that has a decent amount of monthly traffic then you can easily start sharing affiliate products with your audience using your blog.

Bloggers are earning more than 100k $ per month just by promoting affiliate offers on their blog, so I think a blog is the best and easy way to promote affiliate offers. You can start your own blog at just 3.95$ per month.

Why Blog?

  • It looks professional to have your own self hosted blog
  • The blog will give you passive income, you don’t have to drop your affiliate links again and again
  • You can capture your visitor’s emails and target them again and again
  • The blog will give you an online identity and people will start knowing you

These are some benefits of owning a blog, so I always recommend having a self-hosted blog if you are really serious about affiliate marketing. If you don’t know how to get started then you can read my post here on How To Start A Self-Hosted Blog.



How To Promote Affiliate Offers On Blog?

It’s very simple if you have a niche-specific blog, let’s say you own a health and fitness blog then you can start posting some good quality content on your blog and drop your relevant affiliate links inside those articles.

People will read that article and find your affiliate links, and because those affiliate offers are relevant to your audience then there are higher chances that they will buy those products through your links.

For example, if you have a health and fitness blog then you can write articles like,

  • Best Whey Proteins For Gym Lovers
  • Best Weight Loss Programs To Lose Weight In 2020

You can also post comparisons, reviews of different affiliate offers and you can also prepare a list-type article like Top 5 Best Exercise Cycles For Beginners.

So this article will do both the work, first, it will provide quality information to your audience and help them select the right product for themselves and second, it will promote your affiliate products and offers and earn you some real cash.

So what are you waiting for, start your blog today and start promoting your affiliate products.

Youtube Channel

Do you know that almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day? I know these numbers might sound crazy to you but this is a fact. YouTube is a great source of targeted traffic if you utilize it properly.

Have you ever seen description boxes of some YouTube videos that contain some random amazon links? those all are affiliate links. Channel owners put their affiliate links in the description box of their videos so that their viewers can buy those products from their links.

So why don’t you grab this opportunity for yourself? If you already own a YouTube channel then start promoting affiliate offers related to your channel niche by dropping affiliate links in your videos description box.

Produce some great quality videos and provide valuable content to your audience and once your viewers will start engaging with your videos, you will start generating affiliate income?

If you don’t have a YouTube channel then I recommend you to start it today, it’s completely free and you can easily create a YouTube channel just by using your Gmail id.

Using Instagram Theme Page

I know you all have an Instagram profile and you all use it to post photos and share memes.

Do you know Instagram is not limited to only that, you can actually promote your affiliate products on Instagram as well?

Yes, you’ve heard me right, you can actually promote your affiliate products directly from Instagram.

How To Promote Affiliate Products Through Instagram?

To promote your affiliate products using Instagram, you have to set up your Instagram business account.

You can also do it through a personal account but I won’t recommend it as it will not look professional and also it won’t provide you analytics report about your followers, post reach, and engagements.

Here you can see a practical example of people doing affiliate marketing on Instagram.

Look at this page in luxury niche having 6K+ followers, you can see he is having a link in his BIO and just above that you can see a text “Get Your First 100K Instagram Followers”

I hope you already got it, this guy is promoting an Instagram course that will teach people how to grow followers on Instagram.

Just imagine, he must be getting thousands of reach on his posts daily that will be resulting in traffic to his profile and then of course lots of clicks on his Affiliate Link.

These types of pages are called Instagram Theme Pages, cause they are usually based on a single niche and they repost other’s content by giving them credit in the post caption.

This business model is on BOOM right now. You can find thousands of theme pages on Instagram different niches like Beauty, Luxury, Sports, Fitness, etc

You can also do it by yourself, all you have to do is decide on a niche and then create an Instagram theme page dedicated to that niche.

Start posting informative content on your page, you can also repost other’s content but make sure you give them the credit in your post caption.

Use relevant hashtags for initial level growth. {If I say USE HASHTAGS, then I MEAN IT}

Below are some stats for one of my Instagram theme pages, as you can see most of my reach is coming from Hashtags and then Explore page.


Just from one post, I got 295 visits to my profile. Now you can imagine how powerful HASHTAGS are.

Check out my secret trick how i grow my Instagram accounts organically from 0 followers.

Once your Instagram page starts getting enough reach and people start engaging with your content then you can promote your affiliate offers by putting an affiliate link in your Instagram profile bio, as that’s the only place where you can share a clickable link on Instagram.

If you are posting quality content then people will start visiting your Instagram profile and they will find read your bio and find your affiliate offer link and because that is related to their interest that’s why there are chances that they will click on the link and make a purchase.

You can even do it for multiple pages, just set up multiple Instagram pages in different niches and start promoting different affiliate offers.


For those who don’t know, Pinterest is a visual search engine where people actually come and search their queries. just like Google.

It’s a great place to find a targeted audience and start promoting affiliate offers.

Why Pinterest?

OMG!! The Pinterest audience is crazy, they are always ready with their Debit/Credit Cards to buy stuff online.

According to a study, “More than 400 million people use Pinterest every month to find ideas and inspire their next purchase”

That’s the main reason you should start promoting your offers on Pinterest.

The second reason is, Pinterest allows direct affiliate links, which means you can directly link your pin to an affiliate offer.

Although there are some conditions that you must follow otherwise you can get banned if you spam your affiliate links on Pinterest without following the rules.

I always recommend you to have a blog post between your pin and the affiliate offer.


Because if you directly link your pin to your affiliate offer then you may get good conversions but you are actually losing your audience.

And if you link your Pin to your blog post then you can actually grab email IDs of your audience using different email marketing tactics and re-target them later.

To get started with Pinterest you first have to create a Pinterest business profile and after that, you have to create eye-catching and clickable Pins and link them to your affiliate offers.

Do not forget to optimize your pins for keywords so that they will appear in search results whenever someone searches for a particular query.

As you can see in the image below, this is the best way to do Affiliate Marketing Using Pinterest.

Pinterest Traffic -> Blog Posts (Containing Affiliate Links) -> Affiliate Offers

Optimize your Pinterest profile for Pinterest SEO by adding relevant keywords to your boards and profile. Create multiple boards and make them keyword-rich.

You can create multiple pins for the same affiliate offer and pin them at different intervals on different boards. You can also join some group boards to get some initial boost.

Bonus Tip: Some affiliate networks are banned on Pinterest. So if you are directly linking your pin to these affiliate networks you may get your account suspended by Pinterest.

Please do your own research before linking your offers directly to your pins or use a blog post between your pin and affiliate offer.

Keep in mind that this technique is not going to show you results from day one, you have to give it a try for at least 1 month to start getting results.


So if you don’t have a blog, YouTube channel, Instagram page or you don’t have any online presence then you can promote your affiliate products using Quora.

What Is Quora?

Quora is an online question-answer forum where people from all over the world ask their queries and other people answer them.

Why Quora?

Quora has more than 500 million monthly visitors and we can easily find a targeted audience on and start offering them our affiliate products.

How To Promote Affiliate Products On Quora?

First of all, you have to create a Quora account and fill in all the necessary details in your profile. Make sure you show some expertise in a particular niche so that people will trust your profile and buy the products that you recommend to them.

After setting up your Quora profile, you have to find relevant questions to answer them and offer them our affiliate product. For eg., if you want to promote a weight loss program then you have to find questions like “How can I lose my weight fast?“, “How to lose weight without Dieting?“, etc.

After getting all those questions, now you have to answer them one by one, provide them a high-quality answer to their question and include your affiliate link naturally inside that answer.

Make sure you don’t look very obvious while promoting affiliate offers in your answer just keep it natural.

Always write a high-quality answer and don’t bombard your answer with affiliate links, just one link is enough.

Don’t copy-paste your answers and don’t be spammy otherwise you will be banned from Quora. Try to answer 10-20 questions per day and you will start seeing results soon.
