My way of being an affiliate is to participate in platforms like quora and such, writing blog plosts and stuff.. Is there something else I am missing out on? What is most efficient to do when being an affiliate?
So, you are talking about free traffic sources. For example, you can create groups in social media, fill it with valuable unique content, including your affiliate links. Also, you can try to make cross-promos with other related to your niche groups in social media (as soon you will gain audience so cross-promo will be valuable for both sides).
