But you also want to hype the book on your social media, to your email list, on your blog and website… all with a link to buy the book on Amazon through Kindle Direct Publishing.

Affiliate marketing is new to Kenya. According to Martin Muli, the organiser of the Social Media Awards (SoMa), affiliate marketing is facing challenges from competitors such as Google, Facebook and social media content marketing. “Google is the biggest competitor because it makes money from sending users to companies’ sites or by charging for adverts,” he says. Additionally, Muli notes that companies are increasingly opting to sell their products through social media story-telling instead of setting budgets for banners. “The current trend is that companies looking to market online will set a higher budget for Google and social media than banners for affiliate marketing,” he says. This means that a product will be more likely to reach the targeted customer on social media before they can open a website and click on a commission-earning banner that redirects to the same product.
