Affiliate Marketing Traffic Sources 2024

Updated: January 31, 2024 by Bill Burniece

One of the hottest topics in affiliate marketing is pretty much the same topic that dominates discussions every year: reliable traffic sources.

Everyone wants to know the best place to put their traffic generation efforts and money into to increase profits this year.

Smart marketers also want to know if anyone has figured out any shortcuts or hidden traffic sources that have yet to be discovered by the masses.

Today I’ll spill the beans on a little-known traffic goldmine that is currently being used by business titans such as NetFlix, YouTube and Disney.

This traffic source is truly untapped (for now) because most marketers don’t have a single clue about it.

I’ve seen three case studies that were conducted using this traffic source that focused only on building and email list of subscribers in three different markets and here are the results after just a few weeks:

  • 105,695  subscribers in the guitar teaching niche
  • 48,752  subscribers in the dog training  niche
  • 29,636  subscribers in the chess niche

You may or may not be impressed by those numbers so here’s the kicker.. These three marketers conducted the case study without knowing anything about their niche and got these results by using other peoples video content (legally).

What Is This Untapped Affiliate Marketing Traffic Source?

A Traffic Source Used By Netflix, YouTube & Disney

On the 20th of November 2018 the original TV Boss product was launched, which allows you to launch and manage your own TV channel on Roku, the world’s leading provider of on-demand TV.

As of January 2022, Roku has 60.1 million active users.

Since that launch there has been an industry battle brewing.

Now, Amazon Fire has emerged to compete with Roku. Amazon was late to the party, but we all know the reach, power and potential of the mighty Amazon. That’s why TV Boss has now been updated to include both players.

For TV channel owners, it means being recognized as the industry leader, easy income via TV ads, and traffic – depending on niche 3,500 to over 10,000 viewers in the first month alone with no marketing.

How does it work?

Well TVBoss FIRE lets you launch BOTH the Roku channels and Amazon Fire TV channels, and manage the content of your TV program, and assign your videos into multiple categories. And it’s one-click easy to update your TV program on both platforms.

Amazon Fire viewers are starved of good content so it’s just like the early days of YouTube! A ‘Firestick’ is a device (made by the company Amazon) that streams media (shows, movies, and even music) from the Internet to your TV.

The devices require minimal setup and connect to the Internet the same way your PC does. Roku media streaming devices incorporate an operating system (OS) that allows users to access and manage internet streaming content.

Other Affiliate Marketing Traffic Sources

1. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Despite what many affiliate marketers think, SEO is far from dead.

My case in point is the website you’re currently on. This site gets well over 20,000-30,000 unique visitors per month from the search engines.

Please note that I don’t refer to it as ‘free’ traffic. That’s because SEO takes a lot of time and effort; and time is money. But your time invested in SEO is worth every penny in my opinion. Organic traffic is a very reliable source of traffic as long as you follow the rules (white hat optimization) and keep at it.

2. Social Media Traffic

Building social media traffic, like SEO, takes time and effort. But make no mistake about it, social media is one of the best sources of traffic to your affiliate websites and offers.

The best social media platforms to drive traffic from are:

  • FaceBook
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • LinkedIn

Each of these platforms provides you plenty of opportunity to post valuable content and demonstrate your expertise in your chosen market. Use analytics to figure out which platforms your target audience hangs out on and make your content shareable.

The key to driving social media traffic is consistency. Share your content as often as possible without spamming your audience or over-delivering sales offers.

3. Paid Affiliate Traffic

Pay per click traffic delivers consistent numbers but it’s not cheap.

If you choose to utilize paid traffic you must track and test everything you do to make sure you get the most bang for your buck. Experiment on several different paid traffic platforms to see which offers you the highest return on your investment.

Pay per click has gotten very competitive over the years so it makes sense to invest some money in a paid traffic course to keep you from learning the hard way through trial and error what works and what doesn’t.

4. Native Ads

Native ads neatly blend into a websites content so they stand out less as ads and look more like regular articles or news stories. You’ve likely seen them before on CNN and other mainstream news websites.

Native ads are usually marked as ‘sponsored content’ but many site visitors don’t even notice that tag before they click the ad. The click through rates on Native Ads are generally higher than regular advertisements.

As a marketer using Native Ads, you’re usually charged by the number of impressions your ad receives using a unit of measurement referred to as CPM.
