How to advertise affiliate programsOne thing that affiliate marketers face is the problem of how to advertise affiliate programs once they have joined them. In this article we will discuss 8 methods you could do one or more of to promote your affiliate programs online.

1. Buy a domain name and redirect it. This will come in handy no matter which of the following ways to advertise the affiliate program you choose.

Use the keyword phrase or domain name that you just purchased in the resource box. The more articles you get online the more traffic you can get to your affiliate program.
