Should you put your affiliate link in other peoples posts , Lives, groups and comments?

I write this because I see this very often online

The answer is of course a BIG no no.

Would you like it?

Even so, new eager affiliate marketers often do this mistake.

Unless you are allowed to do so - never do it.

It will be regarded as a bad online practice and spam and you risk getting reported

and banned.

It will not help you get more traffic and sales like some people online seems to think.

So where to put your links?

Put your links on your own website, emails or blog or profilebio

You got a website for a reason and you got a social timeline and a profile for a reason. To use it for your own offers and content.

Protips! Let people come to you

Do not even put your link on your own social Timeline in posts

It is much better to get people to ask for your link believe it or not.

You create much more engagement and

get a better connection with your audience.

How could this be you may ask?

Because people are curious of nature.

I know because I tested it over time

The stats shows it is very effective

People do not like to miss out on things.

Hahahahaha!!!

Marketing's famous "Rule of 7"

A prospect needs to see or hear an advertiser's message 7 times (on average) before they take action, i.e. purchase.

Using affiliate links in places where they're neither wanted nor allowed is much the same as a sales assistant shoving products in your face, following you around, shouting at you, asking you to buy, and generally not leaving you alone when you're in a store out in town shopping.

You're unlikely to buy from that sales assistant because you don't like them (they didn't take time to build your trust).

Well said Hilde.

Still spamming my timeline with your affiliate links Partha? :) Lol...
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha,Ha,Ha !!!

I think you are very right in that a prospect needs to hear the message many times.
Especially in these times when we have an information overload.

I actually think they need to hear it more than 7 times Partha.
The 7 times rule is old now. You need to update your rule Partha.

I think it has now increased to the double 12-14 times I would say.
The new marketing rule is 12-14 times.

I like your analogy - you just do not go into the store next doors to yours to sell your products or tell their customers to go to your shop instead. They will of course kick you out of the shop if you do.

Yes the know, like and trust factor is essential to making sales. 100% agree with you on that.

Exactly, A Big NO.
