Social Media

I am new at affiliate marketing.
I do go on Face Book and I use to go on twitter, but I do not go on each day.
My questions are:
Do you have to be an expert social media person to do this type of business?
How does this play an important role to being successful with affiliate marketing?

I have been reviewing several programs for Affiliate Marketing. They all state you need to be part of FaceBook, tiwwier, and others to be successful in Affiliate Marketing. I know list building is important, but is social media the key to getting subscribers to your list? Does Social Media play a significant role to being a successful marketer?

I am not sure about list building, but creating a strong presence in social media sites help your site gain both backlinks and traffic. The traffic in turn can be converted to sales or subscribers once they get to your site.

My two cents. All the best!

Is this something the Affiloroama BluePrint teaches how to use along with how to build a web marketing business?

Hi,

You do not need to become an expert in SMM to become successful in affiliate marketing. But you will need to update yourself of the tips and advice on how to do social media marketing these days.

SMM is important in affiliate marketing but do not forget to also do linkbuilding and SEO. :)
