  • Hi Manidipa,

    I enjoyed reading your informative post. But most people who try to make money using affiliate on social media networks fail because they do not understand two things – getting high quality targeted traffic which is willing to buy the products you promote and building sales funnels with email marketing campaigns to improve conversions. Hence, for beginners, I’d recommend using CPA offers on Social Media platforms as they convert easily.

    Have a great day!

      Welcome to my space. Yes you are very true that, if one does concentrate on creating targeted traffic, then whatever effort is made, can not get them the expected sale. CPA is indeed a good way to start with for beginners.
