    Hey fellas!! I have been working with free social media marketing (free instagram traffic) and I have a problem about my affiliate link. When I send my affiliate link in direct message - instagram block the link and if you try to follow it, it shows a problem : "That page does not exist or it was deleted"

    When I go to this link from google - it`s all alright with that,so the problem is instagram anti-spam, not a link. I tried to use bitly,but it still show me the same error

    Anybody know how to come over this?

    P.S. > If anybody didn`t get what I mean when I say affiliate link - it is a refferal link that was given to me by a CPA network

    Use cloaking, bit.ly is not proper cloaking.

    Yes you have to cloak your links, you cannot post them directly. It will instantly get removed and flag your account(s)

    Best way is get a range of domains, and create pre-landers that direct users to your aff offer

    or you can pay for cloak services by subscription or by the link. But is rather costly

    This is the best option indeed. Create simple pre-lander (doesn't have to be big or special) with just a CTA, some text and a big button so people don't have to think when they land.

    You can start with 1 or 2 domains and expand that when you are scaling up or the domain gets banned.
