Q: What are some great ways to promote the eBay affiliate program?
A: It really depends on your skill set. There are some excellent tools for all levels of affiliates through the eBay Partner Network.
Optimally, you would leverage the eBay affiliate API (Application Programming Interface), which can be used to access eBay’s data and functionality to present in a customized format on your affiliate site(s).
Some ways you can leverage the eBay API as an affiliate include creating a comparison shopping site, niche content site, and desktop or mobile apps.
Even if you’re not familiar with APIs and don’t have a programming background, you could always hire developers to create a site for you.
Then again, if you’re more of a newbie trying to break into affiliate marketing, there are some easy to use tools like the eBay Editor Kit, where you can create links to pages for particular keywords, categories, and other parameters.
