Affiliate Marketing Quick Tip: Use ‘Fan Gates’ for Seamless Community Building


Everyone wants to build their social media presence, that’s a given, but there’s a huge difference between gaining the one-off fan that will never again respond and those you start the relationship with incredible value.

One excellent way to build your social media community is through the use of fan gates.

These scripts place a ‘locker’ in front of what you’re sharing before a visitor can access the information.

You often see this employed on websites which show their Facebook page for 30 seconds, or so, before closing out or if you click out of it. The other rendition of this method can be seen when sharing great pieces of content that a visitor must like/tweet/+1 before they gain access.

Three common tools available, at this time, include:

These scripts and tools have the user “pay” for your freemium content (freebies, ebooks, worksheets, whatever you need) by sharing it on social networks or having them follow. There are many options built within these tools to craft the message being sent to their followers and which networks you require for them to follow.

If you want a quick way to start building your social presence than you should consider using one of these fan gates. They’re extremely easy to setup (takes a few minutes) but can do wonders for building viral traffic back to your landing pages. Pretty easy, huh?
