If you learn the right way to use Twitter, and an Amazon Affiliate Account, you can make a fortune posting affiliate links to Twitter, without a website. I’m going to show you exactly how to do it.
I’m going to focus entirely on Amazon, for 3 reasons.
- It’s the most trusted and reliable affiliate program. They always pay their commissions, unlike some of the merchants on Commission Junction and Rakuten Link Share. And I’ve seen evidence that Wat-Mart may be the worst. As an affiliate marketer, you can always trust Amazon.
- They have the most complete and comprehensive listing of products on the internet. You can find any product and brand you can possibly want on Amazon.
- Everyone knows Amazon, trusts them, and feels comfortable buying from them.
With this being said, let’s talk about making money posting affiliate links on Twitter.
Twitter is Number 1 for posting affiliate links
Forget Facebook. People go there to play, not to buy. You can post until you’re blue in the face, and no one will buy your product.
Twitter is for serious affiliate marketers. It’s simple, short, to the point, and it’s not cluttered with a bunch of BS like Facebook. People will see what you post. The Tweets are short, allowing you to get your message out there fast, and tweet again, and again. Now I’m going to show you how I’ve already made money during this Holiday Season.
Open several Twitter accounts
If you’re going to sell Amazon products, are you just going to sell in one niche? Certainly not. Otherwise, you’ll be leaving a ton of money on the table.
Next, open a Twitter account for each of these niches. This will take a long time, but you can start with a few niches, and add more each day, as you go. It only takes a few minutes to create a Twitter account.
Now you want to get followers to every Twitter account you create. There’s an easy way to do this, but I’m going to let the expert show you how to do it. Watch this VERY IMPORTANT VIDEO by Jerry Banfield. He’s the best at getting Twitter followers. Jerry will show you everything you need to know about getting Twitter followers in the niche you’re marketing.
Manage your Twitter accounts
Get familiar with the tool known as TweetDeck, by Twitter. With this tool, you can tweet to several Twitter accounts with just one click. TweetDeck allows you to add an unlimited number of Twitter accounts. This way, you can see what’s going on in each Twitter account without the hassle of logging in and out of every account.
Since most internet marketers work during crazy hours, such as 3AM, it seems senseless to tweet, because most people are sleeping at this time, and will not see the tweets. TweetDeck takes care of this problem. You can not only tweet to several accounts with one click. You can schedule your tweets.
Tweeting content to TweetDeck
This is where the fun begins. Log into your Amazon affiliate account, and go to any page you want to promote.
Capture the best image from that page, and save it to a file called image.jpg (or .png if you prefer). This is the image that you will post to your tweet. When you tweet again, you will do the same and override the image file, with the image for your next tweet.
As added information, I have spoken to the Amazon affiliate support team many times, and they have assured me that using their images to promote their products is allowed. But I’m not an attorney. If you feel uncomfortable with this, first call Amazon at 1-800-372-8066, and get this confirmed. Make sure you document the date, time, person you spoke with and nature of the call. If you still feel uncomfortable, consult your attorney.
Next, go to the grey bar at the top, and get the short link, which is your affiliate link for that page.
Finally, say something about what you’re promoting. Don’t just say something like, Great Deals on Toys and Games. Use a little imagination and creativity. Finally, copy and paste the link, add the image, and you’re done. Post this to as many Twitter accounts as you like. This is your decision. Use your own judgement.
Be creative in your Tweets
Don’t just tweet to Amazon landing pages every time. People on Twitter may or may not see what you’re doing, but Twitter might get suspicious. Use a different tweet each time. There are three kinds of tweets that you must use.
First, there is the tweet to the Amazon landing page which I just showed you.
Second, there is the tweet that conveys helpful, positive, spirit-filled and happy content that you’d like to share with your followers. For example, you may want to tweet something like this on every third tweet:
“Happiness is knowing where you want to go, and how to get there”
This type of tweet is appropriate for any Twitter account. If you have a website, always post your link at the end.
Finally, there is a link to a website. You don’t have to create a website for every niche. All you need is your own landing page representing each niche. You can do this with Google Blogger. As a word of caution, don’t use Google Blogger to just list Amazon products. Write some creative content, such as, “Why drones are the best selling products for Christmas“. Otherwise, Google will disable your blog. You can still post a few links there. But many people on Twitter are interested in what you have to say.
In a nutshell, use all three types of tweets, but spread them out. If you work at night, and schedule tweets, you can create about 200 tweets a day, and in about two hours. If you have 20 Twitter accounts, this means you’ll have 4 thousand links out there. In the meantime, follow Jerry’s instructions, and there will be a lot of followers on your Twitter accounts who will see these links.
That’s all there is to it. This can’t fail. Do it, and the best of success to you.
