Ultimate Guide For Alternatives For Affiliate Marketing and Social Distancing

Well, a lot’s been going on, and we all know what it’s all about.  That dreaded word, Coronavirus.  It’s something, it hasn’t been to long ago where it wasn’t really to much of a concern for most of us.  But now a new term that we really haven’t heard of or used is “social distancing”.  So the big question is for those of us in Affiliate Marketing, is how do we do business?  Or what can we do during this time or any other time that relates to what’s been going on?  That “C” word is effecting just about anything and everything.  So, what can be done during times like this?

Well, you can either become like a beached whale and give up and do nothing.  Or you can take advantage of the situation.  Yes, take advantage of it.  You’ve head the saying “when it gets tough, the tough gets going”.   There is a lot you can do during this time and make sales too. 

Let’s look at some:

  1.  Get started – if you are new, don’t let this time keep you from jumping on board.  Perfect time for setup and learning
  2. Grow Online – Don’t think for a moment you can make sales, with these days of social distancing, your website will do it for you.
  3. Trainings – Brush up on some training, now’s the perfect time to do this.  Never stop learning.
  4. Make Changes – Now is the perfect time to make any necessary changes to your business.  So rather than working in your business, work on your business.

Don’t think you can’t do anything during this time, as there are obviously lots of things can be done and we just went over 4 of them.  If you haven’t yet created an online presence, now is the time.

Steps to take to create your online presence:

  1.  Social Media – Sign up for at least 3 or 4 of the most popular ones such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.  Yes, there are more, but the most popular ones are really what matter as they have the traffic.
  2. Real Estate – Time to break ground and build some online real estate.  That is time to create your website / blog.  This is your main base to operate on the Internet.  Your online sales will happen here.  
  3. Blogging – Start blogging and have your posts auto-posted to social media.

These 3 steps will get your online presence established.  But here’s a hint when you begin to post to your blog.  Be consistent with the routine of your posting.  If you post once a week, stick to it as your readers will come to expect when you are going to provide content.

So, if you are new and decided to get your online presence started, and need a website, check it out:

Other things that you can do during times like these include:

  1. Do virtual blogs (vlogs) — and verbalize yourself like podcasts to social media like Instagram.
  2. Research – There is a lot to learn and make use of in affiliate marketing.  There is a wealth of information in our blog that you can learn from as well.
  3. Grow your email list – After you develop your website, you can start growing your email list and develop a following
  4. Podcasts – like vlogs, start doing podcasts to promote your business and talk about what you are promoting.
  5. Break out of box – Come up with new ideas that separate you from the norm.  While social distancing is the new norm for now, there is no reason why you can’t try new things that conform to this current situation.
  6. Search for prospects – You can search social media for people who are in the same niche as you are and “follow them”.
  7. Learn a New Skill – This is also a great time to learn a new skill. As an example, if you don’t know Microsoft Word, then find a free course in Youtube that will show you what you need to learn.  This can apply to other skills as well.  Everything you learn will go a long way in the success of your business.
  8. Meet Online – If you were having parties, or meeting in groups to sell your products, try online meetings, this will help you maintain social distancing and at the same time accomplish the same things you were doing.  You can try Zoom for FREE to have your meetings.  You don’t have to have a desktop computer to do this.  You can access Zoom on your cell phone.

If in times like these, money is an issue and you feel that  you can’t start a website, that’s okay.  If you have internet, it costs nothing to get involved with social media.  That would be at least a start and you can check out tools that can help you in Affilorama by clicking this link below.
