Update Your Status Often
A great way to promote your business opportunity or affiliate offer free is by updating your status. You can do this once or twice a day or more times during the course of your day.
You add your text in the white box as well as your affiliate link and click on Post.
If you don’t want to show your affiliate link after adding text just click on Attach a Link and then click Post.
What is the difference?
In the first method, the visitor to your status update would have to copy and paste your website URL in a new page.
In method 2, your visitor clicks on Read More to view the opportunity you are promoting.
Do whatever works best for you.
Go Ahead And Create a Revpage
If you want to promote a business opportunity then you can do so using a Revpage.
You are free to create a revpage at anytime and there is no cost to do so.
If you want to have an idea of how other members are using revpages, scroll down to add on services (left hand side menu) and click on Revpages.
You will then be taken to a new page where all existing revpages can be found.
The revpages are organised by categories. So if you want to see revpages on Affiliate Marketing just click on Affiliate Marketing.
When you click on a category such as Affiliate Marketing, you will then be presented with a new page where you can select which revpage you want to view.
You should the click on the picture or title of the revpage to view its contents.
After you have viewed a revpage, right at the top of the page, you can click on Browse Revpages.
You will then be taken back to the original menu where you can now select Create a Revpage.
After clicking the link to create your revpage, you will be shown a new page as follows.
- Product Name refers to the name of the opportunity you want to review
- Sales link is your affiliate link
- Category is where in the catalogue of revpages you will want your revpage stored
When you finish click ok and you are taken to a new page where you need to give a brief overview of your business opportunity. You should also provide a list of some of its features and click OK.
You will then be asked to add some keywords.
Not sure how this works?
A keyword is a word or phrase that people use when searching for something online. So think carefully about this if you want your revpage to be found by the search engines.
Need some help? At the bottom of your page you can find keyword suggestion tools.
If none of those keyword tools work for you, you can give this one a try:
—————–> Jaaxy Keyword Search <—————————-
After you have added your keywords you can then upload a photo and click Ok.
You will then be able to write your review which can be no more than 2000 characters long.
Your review should not be a blatant sales pitch. You should be looking to show your prospective how this opportunity can benefit them.
As you complete each step, you will receive instructions on what you should do next.
You will notice that there are 6 steps to complete your review of your business opportunity and publish it.
The last step Fill with related content allows you link your revpage to other similar revpages.
So just follow the instructions carefully and you can do no wrong.
Here is an example of a revpage I created very quickly for the purposes of this article:
