- Instagram stories have become an extremely popular way to engage with followers. Instagram stories that have not been pinned have a 24-hour life span and are a great, authentic way to get more eyes on your profile and content. Stories are also a less formal way to remind your followers that you’re helping them find the best products and give you an outlet to showcase your personality.

Website & Blog
- Visitors to your website and blog are coming to read about the products and items that you recommend. Consider your audience and think carefully about what content they want to see.
- While older blog posts and content can still be valuable to your readers, writing new content on a regular cadence is beneficial. Be sure to include links to specific products that you write about, and include your vanity URL as a “one stop shop” for all of the items you recommend on your blog or website.
- Like Instagram stories, Snapchat stories give you a quick, unique way to give your followers a teaser about your shop on Amazon! Take a video or snap a photo of your favorite product(s) to create some buzz about your influencer page.
- If you have a podcast or other audio medium you use to connect and engage with fans, you can use that as an opportunity to tell them about your shop on Amazon.
Any time you include an affiliate link, it’s important to disclose that to your audience. They will trust you more if you are transparent about where you are directing them when you share links.
