3 Free Traffic Methods To Boost Your Affiliate Income

There is a wrong belief online that you need to pay a huge amount of money to drive traffic to your squeeze pages and affiliate offers.

If you’re new or do not have money to invest in traffic, you can still make money online. There are many ways to drive traffic online, but these 3 are the best free traffic methods to boost your affiliate income.

3 Free Traffic Methods To Boost Your Affiliate Income

I must warn you about two things before I go deep into these three free traffic methods.

Firstly, free traffic methods take time, and you will need to produce content for your audience, so produce content and be patient. 

Secondly, pick one free traffic method and stick to it for at least 90 days, the main reason that people fail with free traffic is that they try too many methods at the same time and when they do not get results they got discouraged and quit.

So, let’s look at the three best free traffic methods you can start today to boost your affiliate marketing business and income.


Facebook is huge for free and paid traffic, but today, I will explain how you can generate free traffic from Facebook.

There are two ways to generate free traffic from Facebook: using your own Facebook profile and creating a Facebook group.

Generating free traffic by just using your profile.

Generating traffic using your profile is the simplest way to generate traffic from Facebook. You can do it in just two steps.

1) Create and optimize your Facebook profile.

You can use your current Facebook account or you can create a new one just for your online business, this depends on you.

Once you create your account, you will need to make sure you use your real name and photo, this will increase the credibility, also make sure that you add all relevant links to your profile like links to your landing pages, blog, social media, etc.

2) Find big Facebook accounts in your niche.

Find big Facebook accounts in your niche and start interacting with their content, leave comments, likes and share their content, look to people who reply to your comments, and add them as friends ( some of them will add you first).

Some of these people will start coming to your Facebook profile to find out more about you, and since you optimized your profile in the first part, some of them will click on the links on your page and subscribe to your squeeze pages, and some of them will buy from you.

This method works very well even if you have zero experience: let them come to you, do not spam them, and do not inbox them, but if someone inboxes you with a question, reply to them and build some connections.


Youtube is going to be huge. I think I am going to concentrate on this method this year. The good of YouTube is that you can start for free as long as you have a free Gmail account.

You do not need to have a lot of subscribers to make money with YouTube; you can make money even without any subscribers. You will be okay if you get a few people to watch your video.

How to make affiliate commissions from YouTube.

You can make affiliate commissions from YouTube by following two simple steps.

In order to make affiliate commissions from Youtube, you need to have a Youtube channel, the great news is that if you have a Gmail account you have a Youtube channel already, Google creates one for you.

All you need to do is to log in and customize it a little bit and you are good to go, I am not going to explain everything on the Youtube channel creation in this post but if do you want to learn more you can click here.

Create videos and upload them on YouTube.

The good thing about YouTube is that people use it as a search engine, so the only thing you need to do is to find words that people are searching on your niche and create a short video explaining the issue they are searching for and at the end of it ask people to click the link in the description to find more about the subject. ( you should always have a link in the description either to the affiliate offer, landing page, or squeeze page to collect emails.

For example, if you are in the weight loss niche, you can create a short video explaining why the Keto diet is better than the carnivore diet.

If you’re not a diet expert, you can do research and outline points on why you think one diet is better than the other.

The video will contain three parts: the introduction, the main part of the video, and the conclusion.

In the introduction, you must introduce yourself and what you will discuss. For example, I could say Hi my name is Seki, and in today’s video, I am going to talk about why the keto diet is better than the carnivore diet, the introduction will take less than a minute, simple sweet and to the point.

The main part of the video is where you will go to each point to explain why one diet is better than the other and the conclusion, you will give your opinion it is a summary of what you talked about.

You will ask viewers to click in the link in the description to find more about the diet, you will ask them to subscribe, thank them and end the video.

When you upload the video on YouTube, include your main keyword in the title, in the tags, and in the description.

If you have some kind of social medial following you can share it, if you do this for one month you should start seeing some results.


TikTok is a new kid on the block; I have seen many marketers do well with this method. It is a video platform, but unlike YouTube, it works well with shorter videos, I would say under 1 minute.

If you have a smartphone, you can download the app and start shooting videos of yourself giving tips and then asking people to click the link for more information.

You can shoot a short video about anything and upload it to TikTok. It is easier to go viral on TikTok than on any other social media account.

Unlike other social media, TikTok will not let you add any link until you get 1000 followers, but if you create content daily, you can meet this requirement quickly.

Final words

YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok are the best free traffic methods that you can use to boost your affiliate income.

This is because most people still use these social media a lot, and it is easier to gain traction than other social networks.
