The 5 Worst Affiliate Marketing Techniques

1.Buying Email Marketing Lists

Are you looking for the best products for affiliate marketing in Malaysia? Well, many people would say that in order to promote affiliate products and services, you need to have a powerful email marketing list.

Have you ever thought of buying email marketing lists? This is not actually effective, since most lists that can be purchased are low quality. Several emails will bounce, while others who will get it would be upset since they were never asked to be on your own list.

2.Blog Commenting

No matter how many comment sections you spam with your affiliate links, you will never make a good income. Don’t fall for those “gurus” selling automated software that automatically finds websites and blogs to spam. By commenting on websites, you will not become a recognized affiliate marketer. People would recognize you as a spammer.

3.Low-Quality YouTube Videos

Posting low-quality videos on YouTube is an affiliate marketing technique that is beginning to become an epidemic. This is because so many individuals are doing it now, and it’s not actually a good thing. What do we mean when we say low quality? Many affiliate link spammers create crappy 2- to 3-minute videos, and then utilize black hat SEO techniques in order to rank it high on search results.

4.Article Marketing

Never waste your time with article marketing. In this technique, the marketer creates an article with links, and then sends the article to several hundreds of website owners, hoping that many of them would post it on their own websites. Keep in mind that many website owners don’t want this tactic anymore since search engines might penalize them for duplicate website content.

5.Guest Blogging

Guest blogging was once a popular affiliate marketing technique, but now marketers rarely use it. Guest blogging means providing free web content to other website owners in exchange of allowing you to post some article links in the article. This strategy is no longer perceived as effective, because of the most recent search engine algorithm changes.
