Six Subreddits Ideal for the Affiliate Marketer

Reddit is one of the most popular websites on the Internet. When you look at Reddit it’s best to think of it like individual communities united under one brand. The “subreddits” act a lot like their own entities. You can find just about any type of subreddit out there whether you have an interest in model cars or some obscure hobby. Of course you can expect a slew of subreddits devoted to the types of activates you’d do as an affiliate marketer.

Facebook Video Play Up 785%: What This Means for the Affiliate Marketer

When Facebook decided, some seven months ago, to begin auto playing videos within news feeds the general user base was up-in-arms.

Getting the Most from Twitter’s #FollowFriday

#FollowFriday (#FF) has been quite a popular Twitter trend since its early days. All you need to know, for those uninitiated with #FF, is that you make suggestions, to your followers, about Twitter accounts you recommend following (usually it’s people but brands, bots, and other types count too). Follow Friday, in some ways, works like a recommendation engine in that it helps others find people worth following and due to the number of recommendations – it can lead to the building of authority figures. If you could be the center of this attention then it’s very much possible that you … Continue reading

An Interesting Tactic: Hyper-Local and the Opportunity of Affiliation

I recently did a search in my area for dog parks because our puppy is now at that age (and level of obedience) that I feel comfortable taking her out and letting her loose around other dogs. The results I found were typical: Local news websites covering different parks Dog-focused websites that listed parks in the area Review sites with dog park listings But one that caught my eye (because, like you, I’m into this niche/affiliate/business thing) was one which happened to be a niche site specific (hyper-local) to my area about dog parks. This piqued my interest so I … Continue reading
