To connect your Twitter account, simply scroll down to the Connect your Social Networks section. There will be fields for different social media pages, simply click on the three-dot icon on the right-hand side of the Twitter row.

This will then prompt you to log in to the social media channel. Simply log in to your Twitter account here and accept the permissions requests.

How to promote via Twitter

After you have successfully linked your Twitter account to your Commission Factory account, you’re now able to start promoting on Twitter.

In order to earn commission on sales, your audience will need to click through one of your Commission Factory Affiliate Tracking Links. Tracking links can be found in the Creatives section of your Affiliate account and under the Text Links section.

Creating Text or Deep Links

What is a Deep Link

Personal Feed Posts - The classic way to monetise your posts is to simply add your affiliate tracking link to your posts and share it with your audience/following. You can promote an advertiser by mentioning their upcoming promotion or coupon code and add a call to action to incentivise your audience to click through your affiliate link.

Exclusive Clickless Coupon Codes - Requesting an exclusive clickless coupon code from an advertiser to use in your promotional efforts is a great way to incentivise your audience. 
Exclusive clickless coupon codes can be added to your Twitter posts or even comments. 

Please note: It is important to stay in the know of what the platform's affiliate disclosure rules are. To find out more information, please visit the platform's website and read through their advertising guidelines and/or disclosure rules.
