It goes over everything on where to add them on a blog, social media account, YouTube videos, etc. Hope that helps! And you don’t always need a blog to promote affiliate links, as you could do it on social media or other channels. However, I recommend starting your own blog as you need a consistent audience to generate affiliate revenue.
