Tips on becoming a successful affiliate
It takes work to become a successful affiliate, but it's absolutely worth it! Many content creators have been able to earn a nice income through affiliate sales, and you could do the same by promoting wtfast to your community.
- Include your affiliate link in your templates. YouTube has a template system, and you can add the links there.
- Use your own website or blog. Write a blog post about how to solve problems for specific games, then link from that blog post using your affiliate link. This way you're helping others.
- Don't have a website? Get one! Use something simple like Squarespace or Weebly to get started.
- Be honest. You are required to disclose to your community when links are affiliate promo links. The best way to handle this is to be up-front and honest. Tell your community that the link is an affiliate link, but reassure them that they don't have to pay any additional costs.
- Create value. What value does your content offer your community? Make sure your content is Helpful, Entertaining, or Inspiring. If it's not one of these three things, you're much less likely to grow a community of supporters. And you need supporters to earn revenue as an affiliate!
- Make a Resources page on your website. Are there tools or things you recommend to your followers all the time? Make a Resources page and include your wtfast Custom Link here.
- Remember that Affiliate revenue is income. You'll have to keep track of the money you earn as an affiliate for tax purposes. If you have any questions about whether you should earn money as an individual or a business, consult with an accountant and/or a lawyer.

Link shorteners - good or bad?
It's fine to use a link shortener or short link if you prefer. However, you definitely need to be up-front with your community. It's a requirement of any affiliate program that you declare and clearly tell your community that you're using an affiliate link.
Keep in mind that some users don't trust shortened links like bit.ly and others. If you can, it's much nicer to use a real URL that's more transparent about where the user will end up.
What if I don't have a large following yet?
To be honest, you're much more likely to become a successful affiliate with a larger following.
However, keep in mind that it's not as much about the size of your audience as the quality of your audience. If you don't get much engagement (e.g. likes, comments) on your social media posts, it's not very likely that your followers are going to support you by signing up for wtfast.
Growing a community is about trust and building relationships. Without existing relationships, you'll have a much harder time. Focus on building meaningful relationships through valuable content.
Good luck with your efforts! And thanks again for helping us to make wtfast even better!
