Hi Wamily, just wondering if there are many people using banners on their social media where they send their audience straight to a merchant at all?

I have never really done this, and I am not sure either of I should. I know when you would do this, you have to include a separate affiliate disclaimer in the post. However, I have read something about other issues with this previously if you target European countries in regards to privacy law etc. they have?

Anyone have some experience and clarification on this at all?

Kind regards,

Jude🌺

Hey Jude,

Making my own featured images, and using links to posts serves me well on all forms of social media.

Having said that... to date, Twitter is the ONLY platform that allows users to use affiliate links, so I HAVE shared posts from WA in the past that were awesome.

But again, I created my own image back then as only the small Twitter card worked in Twitter for WA content.

If you are thinking about the Black Friday sale coming up, you may find it easier to create a post, sharing your OWN personal experiences with WA.

In this way, you are more apt to excite your readers into clicking your affiliate links and giving WA a try.

When we simply offer banners, we're selling... and NOBODY likes being "sold".

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi, I wouldn't do that because I don't think the conversions would be great plus affiliate links of this nature are frowned upon and it is salesy, even if if pretty shortened.

The best way is to share a sites post via a share social plugin in which the post would include the affiliate links, this way you are providing your readership with value and a chance for them make an informed decision before clicking your links.

I'd like to add sharing also directly to social media, can get your accounts banned. It has happened in the past.

I don't have an answer regarding the EU regulations, but honestly, if there are too many banners that are not associated with the topic of the blog or site I'm visiting, I just end up leaving the page. It just feels too much like a hard sell. If it is related, it would be a good addition to the page and would be helpful. Just my 2 cents :)
