The Secret to Making a Full Time Income Using Affiliate Marketing

By | Featured Peeks Peeps, News, Tips & Tricks

WHAT IT IS

Affiliate Marketing is when an ecommerce company pays a commission for online traffic or sales generated from its referrals.

HOW TO USE IT

Collaborate with advertisers across an array of categories that fit your unique brand. Peeks Social believes in authentic sponsorships for all creators.

  1. Set up a stream and select go live!
  2. Create the title
  3. Include hashtags of the category you will be covering (ie. #beauty, #gaming, #sports, #relationships). The hashtag in your title decides what ad opportunities are available to you!
  4. Select “Get Sponsored” at the bottom of the screen. The companies available to work with will be shown here, with the the different commission rates and sponsorship details.
  5. Select the ad you would like to appear on your stream.
  6. Read the terms for the sponsorship agreement. If the ad is a good fit, click “accept” on the top right corner of the screen.
  7. Once you have selected the offer, you will be brought back to the stream setup screen. Make sure the ad you selected is beside the “Get Sponsored” tab.
  8. If everything looks correct, start your broadcast and start earning from your traffic!

WHO CAN GET SPONSORED?

Everyone has the opportunity to be a part of our adshare program regardless of your audience size, we only charge a small fee to successful campaigns. Some Advertisers will not pay you if you have hate speech, swearing, or nudity. Each sponsorship has different terms for advertising their products, make sure to read the terms for each sponsorship you are interested in using to make sure it is a good match to your personal brand.

You can’t say that you are endorsed, sponsored, or an ambassador of the company. This is strictly affiliate marketing, you are only getting paid by commission or a percentage of the sales you make from your traffic. Pay outs are generally 30-60 days after a sale!

QUICK TIPS

  • Don’t recommend anything that you aren’t passionate about or that fits your personal brand
  • Make sure the ad you select is something your viewers actually need/want
  • Be credible. Build trust with your viewers so that they will be interested in trying the products you are collaborating with.
  • The most successful sponsorships are reviews and tutorials.
  • Increase your income by adding sponsorships to each of your posts!

How to Create Professional Streams and Videos

By | News, Tips & Tricks

Have you ever watched a really great video that inspired you to create your own? But despite your best effort, it doesn’t come out the way you wanted. Creating professional streams and videos are a great way to produce high quality content that can grow your followers and increase your engagement. If you would like to become a content creator guru and produce professional streams, follow the steps below:

Good Equipment

The first step of any great video is having good equipment. Most smartphones shoot in 4k quality, which is great for your stream or video! To maximize the quality of the video, use the camera on the back of your device, it generally has better quality than the front camera. Before going live you need to also ensure that your smartphone has a full battery. It’s a good idea to keep a charger nearby or bring a portable charger if you are outdoors!

Proper Audio Equipment

The key to producing professional videos is focusing on the viewers experience and what they will take away from your content. You can do this by eliminating any distractions that would take the viewer away from that focus. A major disturbance to video is poor audio quality.

One way to eliminate this problem is by testing your stream or video before production. This allows you to consider your distance from the smartphones microphone, the volume of your voice, or background noise at your shooting location. If you still are noticing that the audio is unclear, purchasing a portable microphone is a great solution. They are very inexpensive and accessible to use, most plug in to your headphone jack and can be clipped onto anything.

Vivid Lighting

Whether you are shooting indoors or outdoors, understanding how lighting can affect your video is beneficial before production. If you are planning to shoot outdoors, there are things you will need to consider such as the position of the sun and distracting shadows. Amplifying the lighting of your video can be done through purchasing a portable LED light that attaches to your smartphone. This will help in evenly distributing light to make your streams or videos look and feel professionally produced.

However if you prefer shooting indoors that is also a great option as it allows you to have a studio feel if you select the right background. Look for something simple, preferably with a white or light colour to give off a clean feel. If you decide to purchase an LED light for your indoor production, position the stand directly behind the camera, this will illuminate you and elude shadows.

Creative Planning

Planning your content before a stream helps centralize the focus of your video. By planning your production, you will have a better understanding of the location you will be filming and some possible complications you may experience (ie. lighting, audio).

Its good to plan out what the purpose of your video is, who will be watching, where you will shoot, when you will go live, and how you are going to accomplish it. Once you have a good understanding of the focus of your video, creating a script or a list of key points will help you stay on track and provide your audience with valuable content.


Video Stabilization

Having a shaky video will take away from the content you are providing your viewers. Ensuring that your smartphone is stabilized will help in creating high quality video! To stabilize your smartphone you can rest it on a flat surface with a stand or tripod.

If you decide to use a stabilizing accessory, you will need to consider how you will be able to interact and engage with your audience if you aren’t holding the device. A solution to this is occupying another device or external display to monitor your stream so that you don’t miss any comments!

Cross Promotion

Promote, promote, promote! Get a jump start before you go live and build your audience in advance. This will generate buzz in your network and allow your followers to know whats coming up! Give your followers a preview of what they can expect from your stream, when you will be going live, and where they can find you.

Turn your audience into advocates have them share your message to their network and use them as a communication channel. This will help you get noticed by people who are most likely going to be interested in the content you are producing!
