    Examples of different ways to post affiliate links?
    I'm just getting started with affiliate marketing. I'm in the health niche of one specific health product. I've built a wordpress blog and plan to post articles regularly about the health benefits/current research of this product. I plan to monetize with adsense ads and an amazon store. At most of the affiliate programs i've checked into, there arent any programs available for this specific product and adsense/amazon seem to be the most promising ways to monetize for this niche. For now, this website is just a place to for me to start to gain knowledge about the general swing of things.

    Anyway, I'm very curious about other ways to affiliate market besides having a blog, writing articles, posting affiliate links to relative products within the articles, etc. For example, nomorerack.com (I know, i know, it has a horrible rep on here) basically just posts coupon codes for stores online and I assume that most of those are affiliate linked. I've also heard of a few people being successful with posting links within twitter, or posting reviews about dating sites and having affiliate links to the dating sites within their artcles. I guess I'm just curious about other ways people post their affiliate links.

    I'd love if someone posted some links to example websites where I could get a good visual/understanding about how that person is utilizing affiliate links.

    Thanks!

    Do you have any examples of websites that use these so I could get a visual understanding of how they work?

    Also for specific affiliate programs like ebay or groupon. I'm sure there are different ways people post their affiliate links to these websites. I'd love to see a few sites that use these programs (or others) in different ways.

    Disclosing links to affiliate sites is against the rules of the forum and unfair to the affiliates. Many successful affiliate have had their sites copied and scraped from posting their links.

    There are a variety of ways to market affiliate links on websites.

    What do you envision doing? If you could create the perfect website, what would be on it?

    Then ask yourself, and even others, "How can I make that vision a reality?"

    Websites are often an extension of the creators' personalities - everyone is different in one way or another.

    We market in a variety of different website "formats" - some more successful than others. Some niches more successful than others. One niche may work on one type of website but not another.

    We use everything from data base websites to two different ad servers to serve up geo-targeted banners and contextual text links - and what seems like everything in between. Directories, Blogs, and niche search engines to name a few.

    Use your imagination and then figure out how to do it...

    Okay, thanks I have 2 new website ideas that should keep me pretty busy for the next couple months. I think once I get more involved more ideas should sprout from there, but at least now I have a good starting point.
