October 6, 2009 by ronaldmarva

The explosive growth of social media networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, among others, provides an excellent opportunity for Affiliate Marketing publishers to reach a much wider audience.

Social media is currently among the fastest-growing sectors on the Internet. By providing users the option to post photos, status updates, videos, and other digital media in interactive and user-friendly avenue, social media networks are able to communities of like-minded individuals all over the world. This creates a powerful avenue for publishers build greater online visibility and a wider reach.

By signing up on the most popular social networking sites, an affiliate can start building a strong Internet presence. From there, a number of friends or followers can be established, and these users will then be the affiliate’s target market for the products or services that are advertised on the sites. With a greater number of networks and followers, publishers can reach a potentially larger audience.

Another major advantage of leveraging the power of social media networks is the opportunity to create ‘buzz’ for an affiliate marketing campaign through user discussions, comments, reviews and recommendations. And because most social networks don’t require a fee for a user to register, publishers don’t need to set aside a separate marketing budget to fuel their affiliate marketing campaign.

Using social media networks to promote products, services, events, or even individuals can also greatly benefit a website’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO) initiative. Social networks have excellent Google search rankings, which in turn can create greater visibility in organic search results.

Taking advantage of the popularity and efficiency of social media networks can further extend the reach of an affiliate marketing campaign. Taking the time and effort to develop a community of users within a social media network can help to create an effective and profitable affiliate marketing campaign.
