Here at Get Community, we’re always on the hunt for the latest trends and exploring new avenues throughout the digital marketing world, and when we find something we love, we put our buzz creator brains together and mold it into something fabulous.
So, with that being said, we have an exciting new addition to the GC agenda of awesomeness that we’re finally ready to share with you, our wonderful readers!
Drum roll, please…
Introducing Gift Guru Gal, a gift seeker’s paradise for super cool, weird, and fun trinkets to buy for your family, friends, and even yourself! Holidays, birthdays, I-want-to-treat-myself days...no matter the occasion, Gift Guru Gal is here to make your cyber shopping easy and enjoyable.
(Meet Gigi, our friendly and fashionable Gift Guru!)
Before we dive into the kinds of products you can find on Gift Guru Gal, we want to give you a little background info into the inner workings of affiliate marketing. To answer the question we know you’re all thinking, we have NOT converted our office into Santa’s workshop.
To answer your second question, we don’t actuallysell any of the products that you see on the site. This new rabbit hole we have traveled down in digital wonderland is quite simply the process of promoting other people's (or a company's) products, like Walmart, Amazon, and Target, and narrowing down what we think are the best items out there. Here’s a nice little visual from eBay that sums it all up:
eBay also provided a full breakdown of how affiliate marketing worksHERE. You can also see how other sites review products sold on Amazon (there’s tons!). Some affiliates choose to talk about cool gadgets, others like to review pop culture products...the possibilities are endless! Here’s a whole list you can browse through to get a better idea.
So, why did we decide to take the leap? Affiliate marketing isn’t just about promoting products, it’s about sharing YOUR interests and passions with others. Which, if you haven’t met the cool peeps here at Get Community, you should know that we are all into A LOT of pretty rad stuff (cough! Game of Thrones). Our team is having a blast finding unique and silly products for your shopping pleasure, and we hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!
Okay, so now that you know the deets, here’s a sneak peek of what you can expect to see whilst perusing the Gift Guru Gal website:
Cat lovers unite! We’ve got the DL on all things cute and furry for the person in your life who is kind of a crazy cat person.
Well, maybe not that crazy.
Or, if your BFF thinks cats are pretentious, evil fluffballs who are secretly trying to take over the world, fill their hearts with joy with a pawesome gift for their pup!
You can also find gifts for him…
Seriously, if you love giving gifts and filling your home with quirky whosits and whatsits galore, you won’t be disappointed. Head over to http://www.giftgurugal.com/ and see what we’ve been working on the past couple months (why not do a little shopping while you browse?).
Have fun and enjoy!
