How to Promote Affiliate Products? (5 Methods that Work)


Signing up for an affiliate program is just the first step. A really important one, if you ask me, but still only the first one. If you want to earn real money through affiliate marketing, you will have to put in the work. 


In the simplest terms, affiliate marketing is a way for you to earn money by promoting other business products. For example, you could sign up for 123presets affiliate program and earn money each time somebody buys presets through your posted link.     



There is a lot of freedom on how you can promote affiliate products: word of mouth, website, social media, forums, and any other creative way that you can think of.Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways of earning money: you do not risk anything or have to pay to anybody. You do it at the time that is convenient for you and in a way that is acceptable to you. 
But how do you get started?  


If you haven’t already, you will have to sign up for an affiliate program. 123Presets has its own program that offers 30% commissions on all sales. This is one of the best-rewarded affiliate options in the presets community. 


Once you signed up, you can start immediately. You can place banners to your website, ad links or mention the presets in your videos. Here is a great example of an Instagram video that has been created by our amazing influencer - @sleepinthezoo.

HOW TO PROMOTE #123PResets products on your website? 

Here a couple of creative ideas on how you could use your website to promote 123Presets products to get the most out of our affiliate program. 




By creating valuable content for the readers on the blog, you will be able to reach more interested people. Needless to say, the more people interested in photography visit your website, the more sales you will get. I would like to note one of the most important things. Creating solely reviews on your blog will not work. People are smart and they will not buy if they see that you are only trying to sell them things. 


By writing mainly useful content and a couple of reviews, you will be able to achieve a much higher visitors number and better sales results. You can link the review links in your main articles to get more traffic to those pages. 


Also, review pages that include genuine photos and detailed explanation on how you use something will be more interesting to people. Don't be afraid to tell your honest opinion. People will most definitely appreciate that.   



Especially with a product such as Lightroom Presets, product tutorials can be extremely helpful. As we all know, for the best results, you need to tweak the presets a little bit. Each photo is taken during different lighting conditions, some will be brighter (hence, they will need their highlights decreased) and others will be darker (they will need their exposure increased). Also, maybe you have your own personal preference, such as, increasing the whites in the photo or adding a little bit of pink tint. Either way, all of these tips are highly appreciated by Instagram influencers. Use this opportunity to help them out. 



One of the best way to promote affiliate products without too much extra effort on your blog is to simply add visual banners. You can freely use 123Presets visual ad designs. All you need to do is to add the banners to your website and you are set. Our team is also ready to provide any needed banner sizes or if you think of a new design idea, we can most probably help you out with that as well.

How to Promote Affiliate Products Without a Website?


You really don’t need to have a website to promote your affiliate products. In fact, most affiliates promote their products through their social media.Let me show you how.


How to Promote Affiliate Products on Youtube


If you have a Youtube channel, then you can most definitely earn money by promoting links in your videos. The more helpful and entertaining your videos are for the viewer, the more likely they will be to click on your affiliate links. 

Best Ways to Promote Affiliate Links on Youtube: 

Add a clickable link to your video. You can add clickable buttons that for example say “Click here for more details”. The easier it is for somebody to reach content, the more likely they will take action.

Add a link in the description box. This is one of the most common ways that YouTubers add their affiliate links. I would just like to tell you that you have to remind your viewers to check out the link in their video. 

The main reason why you hear Youtubers say “you can find the link for new presets bellow” all the time is because it actually works. People click on those links, buy the products, and you earn money by simply recommending the products you love. 


What Kind of Videos Should I Create?

The best part about affiliate marketing is that there is nobody breathing down your neck. You can create content that you personally like and that fits your brand. 

However, it has been seen that the videos that include a tutorial with helpful information for the viewer are more successful. For example, you could explain how you tweak your presets in the tutorial and show actual before and after results. 

How to Promote Affiliate Products on Instagram

Instagram is usually the first choice for presets affiliates. Mainly because presets are a highly visual product. There are many ways how you could promote a product: posting a link in your Instagram bio, story swipe ups, mentioning it on IGTV or simply your feed photos with before and after. 


 If you don’t use paid advertising on your account, make the most of your organic traffic. Tag different people, choose the best working hashtags, comment long and personalized comments on other people’s accounts, and post during the best hours (many times it’s in the evening). 


 If you are using multiple channels to promote your posts, you could advertise them. For example, you could DM various people and simply tell them that you are a new Youtuber and you have just created a video with your personal photo editing hacks and invite them to check it out.

How to Promote Affiliate Products on Facebook


Many people post on the links on their feeds. However, before you do that, you need to make sure that your Facebook account is active. I mean, when was the last time you shared some photos of your trip on Facebook? 


 The truth is that you can’t just bombard your friends with affiliate links. It is a lot more effective to share two interesting or helpful posts an then one that includes an affiliate link and has a direct call to action. 


 One of the possible advertising ways that are often overlooked on Facebook is posting in the Facebook groups. The engagement of the posts is a lot higher on the groups. On top of that, it is an easy way to promote a product.You can search for relevant keywords on the Facebook search to find groups where people talk about photography, traveling, and using presets. 


One of my own favorites is SOLO Female Travelers. Women sincerely share their traveling and taking photo experiences. You can also share photos from your most recent trip and quickly mention that you have edited the posted photos with Lightroom presets and add the link.
