How To Promote Your Jumia Affiliate Links.
#1. Niche Blog
This is the best way from my opinion to promote Jumia affiliate links is by having a niche blog. For example, if you run a tech blog, most of your users visiting your website would be searching on techy stuff on google to have landed on your website.
Thus promoting tech product to them would bring in sales.
If you have large group followership on Facebook, you could promote Jumia product that would go down well with your group’s target audience, this is essential because, if you promote products that do not interest your target audience, they may probably leave your group.
For instance, it would make no sense promoting a product that depicted sexuality to a religious group on Facebook, this would be largely frowned at, so always promote products that is in line with your niche.
