How To Drive Traffic To Your Affiliate Link Using Twitter

Twitter is one of the best platforms to get traffic, free or paid, in this post, I am going to share with you how to drive traffic to your affiliate link using Twitter for free.

I have used this method to drive traffic directly to affiliate products or squeeze pages and I have very good results.

If you do not have any offer to promote to your Twitter page, you can pick one from Clickbank, I go into detail on how to choose the best Clickbank product to promote here.

How To Drive Traffic To Your Affiliate Link Using Twitter

How to drive traffic to your affiliate link using Twitter in 6 steps

Step 1: Create a Twitter account

Now you have the product and the link you need to create a Twitter account that you can use for your affiliate promotions if you have one you can use that one if you do not just create a new one, it is easy and very quick.

Just go to Twitter.com

Twitter will ask you to log in or create a new account, depending on your situation you can log in or create a new account, to create a new account they may ask you for a phone number, email address, and your name.

For twitter username, I will recommend finding a name that is short and easier to remember, you can just use your name or pen name if you wish, if the username is taken, try to find a new one and avoid using numbers at the end (it creates mistrust), you need to create a profile that people can trust.

Step 2: Optimize your profile

Use your real photo

I found it easier to attract new followers when I use my real photo, I will recommend you to do the same. never leave the default profile photo.

Create a cover image.

I use a free tool called canva.com to create my Twitter cover images, it is free, easy, and quick, again do not leave the default cover image.

Step 3: Write a short bio and put your link on it.

Here is where things start to get interesting, you will need to create a short bio to introduce new people to your account and then at the end of it you can include your affiliate link.

You need to do this as most people before deciding to follow you, can go on your profile, and writing a good bio with a link on it will increase the chance of them to follow you and click the link.

Step 4: Write your first tweet and pin it.

Before starting to follow anyone or having any followers I will recommend that you write your first tweet and pin it.

Write a short tweet with a call to action, include your affiliate link and then tweet it. After tweeting it, click a drop menu on your tweet and then click on the pin to your profile as shown in the image below. That is it.

Step 5: Start following other Twitter accounts

After optimizing your Twitter profile, now it is time to start following other Twitter accounts that might be interested in what you are promoting.

But before going into details on how to do this please follow my personal account @sekihudson

Where to find people who might need your products?

You need to find out what are big accounts in your niche. In this example, I am promoting 12 minutes affiliate and this account is dedicated to all people who want to make money online via affiliate marketing.

So the first question I will ask myself is what are the influencers in affiliate marketing? Most people must be following them.

Big affiliate marketers, like Russel Brunson, big tools like Aweber, and Clickfunnels are the influencers and most of your audience must be following them.

The idea here is to steal followers from them, this is what I mean, go to the big affiliate marketing account, click on followers, and start following those people.

For example, if I was targeting Russell Brunson followers, I would go to his account and I will see who is following him and I will start following those people.

The idea here is that if these people are interested in Russell’s tweets they are interested in marketing and becoming online entrepreneurs, some of them might be interested in my content.

If your account is brand new, I will recommend starting following 50 people per day in the first week then increase the number to 100, then 150 up to 400, Twitter allows you to follows up to 400 accounts per day.

Some of these people will start following you back and if you do this in less than a month you can have more than 1000 followers.

Unfollow users who do not follow you back

Twitter wants you to have a good ratio of people you are following and people who follow you, by using this method most people won’t follow you back, what you want to do is to start unfollowing people who are not following you back.

Free tool to follow and unfollow account on Twitter

Following and unfollowing an account on Twitter can be a tedious activity, the good news is that I found a free tool that can help you to achieve that without hustling.

It is a free Chrome and Firefox extension, all you need to do is to go to the following link and add an extension to your browser.

https://www.clemensteichmann.com/superpowers-for-twitter

With the free version, you can follow and unfollow 50 accounts at a time but if you refresh it the count starts over.

NOTE:

Please carefully read About the following on Twitter. If you do long and frequent mass actions, your account may get suspended. Usually, you can unlock your account again. To prevent further account suspension, you can adjust the options “Interval (seconds)” and “Limit” accordingly. You can also do fewer mass actions. Note: The extension pauses automatically when the Twitter follow limit is exceeded.

In order to change the setting, follow and unfollow limits, click on the Superpowers for twitter and then options.

How to follow accounts using this extension.

Just find an account that posts content related to your niche and click on the followers if the extension is installed then you will see the follow all button, click that one, and it will start following all those accounts without you doing anything.

If you have a free account it will follow 50 accounts if you have a pro version you can follow 400 accounts (Twitter follow limit per day).

In order to unfollow an account that did not follow you back in a given period of time ( this depends on your settings mine is 5 days).

Just go to your account then click following, then the magic unfollows all button will appear if you click that it will unfollow all accounts which do you follow but are not following back, this way you keep the ratio near to 1:1.

Start giving value

The secrets to free traffic are to add value to the community, start posting tips and information that your audience might be interested in. I found out that motivational quotes work almost for every niche on Twitter, find them, and post 5 to 10 times a day, the more the better.

Interact with other users

When you start getting followers, you need to start to retweet or like their content, and in exchange, they will do the same to you, this will give your account exposer and your account will start growing organically ( without you following other people).

Ask questions and respond to the question they ask, some of them they will ask you what you do and you will explain to them that you’re an affiliate marketer and if they are interested you can tell them how to get started if they say yes, you send them your affiliate link.

You can tweak it a bit if you’re in a different niche.

How to Make Money With Twitter?

When we optimized your account, you created the bio and the pinned tweet with your affiliate link, these two will be the main source of traffic, many people will see your links and few will click on one of the two links (they go to the same affiliate link or squeeze page).

make money with twitter

Another way to make money will be through tweeting, I will recommend tweeting directly to your squeeze page link once in a while, I would say for every 5 value-added tweets on goes directly to your affiliate link.

You can make money also by sending direct messages to people, I do not recommend using automated software for this, as it can cause your account to get banned.

What do I recommend to ask a question on one of your tweets, for example, you can ask who wants a done for you system that takes 12 minutes to set up and can help you to make up to $460.02 per day? comment yes if you’re interested.

Then you can send your affiliate link to every person who comments yes to your question, you can say a simple thing like Hey [name], Thank you for engaging with my post, here you go this is the method I was talking about in the question.

This is very targeted traffic, if you can send 100 messages like this I am sure at least 35 of them will opt-in, remember for each one who takes the $1 offer you will have the potential to make $35 per month. Just 10 of them you´re making $350 per month.

How long it will take to make a sale with this method?

I know this is the question are you asking right now, the honest answer is that I do not know, it depends on a lot of factors, like how the product convert, how much effort you put into this, the quality of the traffic.

I have done this in the weight loss niche, make money online niche, numerology niche. I generally make a sale between 10 to 20 opt-ins (I do not send Twitter traffic directly to the sales page, I capture their email address first), so here the question is how many clicks you can generate per day? That will be your limit.

When I tried this, I made 4 sales in 10 days.

Do this method work everywhere in the world

The answer is yes, as long as you have a Twitter and if you can get affiliate products to promote.

Does this method work for other networks apart from Digistore24?

Of course, you can replicate this method to make money using an affiliate network and any product.

Final words

This is how to use Digistore24 and how to make money with Digistore24 in 2020 as an affiliate marketer.

I am using the same method to make money online, yes it won’t be overnight and it might take time to get consistent sales, but if you follow the instructions and take action every day you will make some cash.
