I know many new affiliate marketers can’t afford to pay for adverts to get traffic to their offers so I thought I would write this article and give you some free traffic methods which I use personally on a daily basis.
Create Your Own Website
A website is a great traffic source if your willing to put the time and effort into it, in my experience it takes about six months of consistently creating articles (3-4 a week) to gain a good traffic flow.
The great thing about creating content for your website is once you have published your article it is their live on the internet forever for free unlike paid ads which only remain online as long as you’re paying for them.
Now if you’re thinking you don’t know anything about creating a website you can get a free membership to Wealthy Affiliate which teach you how to create your own website and use it to make a living online whether that’s through affiliate marketing or selling your own products.
Pinterest is a search engine so creating your own board and pins is a great free traffic method. I like to create pins which link to my website articles, all you have to do is upload a photo and come up with an interesting title then write a short description to capture your readers attention.
It really is that simple I get thousands of website visitors just through my Pinterest pins alone so it really is worth giving it a go.
Personally I really enjoy making videos for my YouTube Channel but I know their are people who don’t enjoy being in front of the camera and that’s OK because you can create videos through websites for free that will show your content in writing on a white board and play some music in the back ground, I use one called Renderforest which is free to use.
There are a couple of really good apps you can use to help find the best titles and tags for your videos and grow your channel called VidIQ and TubeBuddy, I actually use both because I like different features on each of them.
Free Blogging Sites
There are literally hundreds of websites that allow you to blog on them for free some even pay you. I use them by basically copy and paste my own website articles on to them but you can use them however you please to get traffic to your offers.
My favorite sites are Bored Panda, Medium, LiveJournal, Linkedin and Tumblr and of course you can share on your FaceBook too.
I’m sure their are many other free traffic methods out their but these are the ones that I use myself and they work well for me.
I hope this has been helpful to you and please feel free to leave any questions you may have in the comments section below and I will get back to you.
