How To Do Affiliate Marketing on Snapchat
If you’ve been wondering how to make money with Snapchat, it’s time to stop wondering.
The best way to monetize your account is by doing affiliate marketing on Snapchat.
Affiliate marketing allows you to promote products or services of other brands that are in the same industry as yours without having any inventory yourself.
Follow these 6 steps for success!
Create a Snapchat account
Step one is creating a new account. You can create an unlimited amount of accounts, but you will only want to use one for your business endeavors.
Add your affiliate link to the bio section of your profile
Once your Snapchat profile has been created, add your affiliate link to the bio section of your Snapchat page located in the top left-hand corner above your Snapcode.
Follow other brands on Snapchat that are in the same industry as you
Follow other brands that are in the same industry as you. As long as they’re not your competitor, it doesn’t matter who you follow because you won’t be sending any sponsored snaps or using their products yourself. However, if another brand’s content isn’t relevant to your audience, you’ll want to unfollow them.
Share content from those brands with your followers, making sure to include their name and link
Share content from those brands with your followers that include their name and link within the caption of a snap or story post. Make sure all sponsored snaps always use an @username so they’re easy for users to locate and engage with.
Interact with people who follow you by liking or commenting on their posts
Start interacting with people who follow you by liking or commenting on their posts. When users see your username pop up next to a like, they’ll be more inclined to check out your profile and potentially engage back with you as well.
Send snaps back-and-forth with friends when they have something interesting to say about what you’re promoting
Allow your followers the opportunity to tag their friends in a story or mention them via chat (if using iOS) and encourage them to show off your product or service to their friends.
