I actually use a Blog as my main place to advertise, I feel more comfortable with that. I also advertise on social media, but this is because I have already been here for a while.
But for you, as a beginner, choose one that you are more comfortable with, and then only when you are more experienced, you can move on.
Here is the list of places you can advertise as an affiliate:
- SEO. This is basically Blogging.
- Social media. Here you have FaceBook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.
- Email Marketing. Once you start building your list, you can use your own email list.
- YouTube. This can be a very powerful way to generate free traffic.
- Paid Ads. As a beginner, I don’t recommend that to you because it can cost you a lot of money and sometimes they are not as effective as people think they are, and you can spend a lot of money to optimize them. But they can also be a great way to generate traffic if you really know how to use it.
