Start promoting yourself not your affiliate links! You will build credibility & trust with your prospects & make new friends as well!
How do you brand yourself?
1) Get your own domain name & website.
2) Join Social Networking sites such as this one (Magnetic Sponsoring Community).
3) Create your profiles on each networking site linking it to your domain name website.
4) Writing articles and making informative or supportive posts to forums and networking groups. (Don't post ads to forums and groups unless you know they are allowed there). Include your domain name website in your signature lines if they are allowed.
5) Create a signature line in your email program linked to your domain name website.
