Believe it or not, email marketing is NOT just buying a list of 100,000 random emails and spamming them day after day with affiliate offers! (It’s about building a relationship with your customers). Some types of marketing emails:
Posts on social media can be in form of text, photo or video, depending on each social platform that you need to create and post relevant content. Especially, You need to formulate a content strategy and use a mix of content types, preferably the ones that your audience will most like.
For example, some influencers keep their feed to focus on just their chosen fields and do not mix work posts with posts about their personal life.
Moreover, putting the promotion product elegantly on your post would both increase the effectiveness and avoid annoying your audiences with blatant advertisements.
Create Promotional Video
Video marketing is becoming a popular method for influencers and affiliates to do their work. The percentage of time people spending on watching videos is increasing through years. Also, video is the type of content that has the most engagement among all the content types.
