Just like with the other platforms, keep these few things in mind when posting affiliate links online:
You must disclose that you will be making money through this link: “You’re legally required by the FTC to disclose any relationship with a brand that is giving you compensation in exchange for promotion. Yes, this includes affiliate links shared on social media.” Read the FTC’s guidance for disclosing on social media.
You must own the platform on which you’re posting the link: Ensure you are abiding by each platform’s policies regarding adding affiliate links in the comments, pages, profiles, or links you don’t own.
Don’t be Spammy, Be Helpful: Don’t just post your affiliate link any and everywhere, rather limit your affiliate link sharing on socials where it’s relevant or adds value.
