You can get free traffic with several methods if you want to employ affiliate marketing advertising. But keep in mind these methods are all time consuming and time is money. In addition to Facebook, there is Instagram Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, YouTube, Tumblr, etc. as well as website SEO.
These can be very effective over time when it comes to affiliate marketing advertising if you learn how to work with them with skill. You can also learn how to develop these skills by watching free training videos on Youtube and other platforms, as well as free training that only require an email to take advantage of.
If you have the resources your best bet is paid online advertising. Here, too, to be effective you will need to learn more skills and discover, often by trial and error, which platforms will give you the best and most cost-effective results. This also true for testing which ads will work for you and which will not.
Yes, indeed, there are many free options in internet marketing including learning the skills you will need to be successful. It is what attracts many would-be entrepreneurs and it has spawned a entirely new sector of the online economy.
It might be helpful to keep in mind that affiliate marketing advertising has become considerably more competitive over the years. There was a time when your average keyword on Google Adwords cost a nickel and your email marketing faced little competition. Many of the rags to riches marketing gurus we know today made their fortunes in this environment.
Platforms like Facebook with all the free opportunities for interaction can be a blessing, though it is often a mixed blessing when you’re trying to stand out from the crowd.
Here’s an honest appraisal: As mentioned above, it can take months, if not years, to make affiliate marketing advertising work for the vast majority of enthusiasts and many give up in frustration. If you can afford a course I would recommend it, particularly one with ongoing coaching.
Don’t give up, but don’t expect to start out making $300 a day by posting on Facebook’s free post your opportunity groups.
Best of luck on your journey!
