2?Abusive Use Of This Plugin Can Result In Negative Consequences That Can Impact Your Reputation Online?
Alright, newbie, I know exactly what you will do when you finally have this plugin installed and activated on your newly created website.
You would want to affiliate with over a million products and start sharing them aggressively on social media right away. I know this because I’ve been there before.
While this solution offers you the possibility to do that, you have to use it sparingly.
What do I mean?
You see, affiliate marketers who are already running a successful website, have equally implemented other monetization methods, most probably content creation, YouTube marketing, email marketing, etc..
They are smart enough to know that publishing affiliate links frequently on their social platforms, can attract undesired consequence in the form of sanctions. This is because it’s not best practice to publish direct affiliate links frequently, even if these links have been cloaked. While sharing post content several times a day to your social media accounts will rather increase your authority online the contrary is true for direct affiliate links which can lead to your account being shut down.
So this is what the experienced marketer will do. Once in a while, they will publish their affiliate links, especially when they don’t have the time to write content about a new trending product. They could just make a quick post and publish.
But as a newbie, you will have the tendency to go in all full swing, and just publish all your offers out there. In the beginning, it will work, but it won’t take long for your account to be banned.
This especially happened to me when I was starting out. My Facebook account got banned because I kept posting direct affiliate links. That’s when I realized it was time to learn how to create content, where I could safely insert my affiliate links.
So be wise, and make sure to understand the respective guidelines when it comes to posting direct affiliate links on social media platforms.
