Advantages of affiliate marketing through Facebook:

Ever since its inception, Facebook has indeed brought about significant changes to the concept of affiliate marketing and also the ways in which consumer products are bought . This is more so as perhaps all and sundry are now on Facebook the world over. Thus reaching out to the multitudes has become greatly easy because Facebook is now acknowledged and accepted as the most popular app and visited website.

Facebook freely allows all its visitors to view your updates and posts, like, interact, comment as also share them. The Facebook algorithm is so designed that any genuine interaction you receive will lead to your post being seen more by others. That’s why it’s most essential to well-drafted posts, updates, and ads can make your affiliate sales spiral and improve your bottom line substantially.


3 Useful Tips For Marketing on Facebook

1. •Use Facebook Insights to increase engagement . When your content is relevant, your visitors become invested in your business. With a Facebook business page, you automatically get access to Facebook Insights. It’s an analytics tool that provides a snapshot of your audience based on visits, clicks and other factors. As the page administrator, you can view engagement for each post and determine which types of posts drove more engagement compared to others. It’s valuable information to use as you work on generating ongoing content for your page.

2. •Fresh content attracts visitors . Remember that the attention span of a user on a social media platform like Facebook is typically quite short, so you need to grab it with content that’s creative, timely and relevant. Try to use a neutral tone and find ways to engage your visitors by offering shopping tips, gift ideas or reminders about upcoming holidays or occasions when they might be looking to make purchases. Many Facebook users enjoy relevant tidbits of information or questions, and are apt to share words or photos that resonate. This can bring their friends to your page too!

3. •Pay attention to Facebook’s guidelines Facebook can be a powerful marketing tool, but it does have rules you need to play by. Periodically review Facebook’s regulations, and if you take the extra step of paying for ads, review the ad guidelines before spending your money. Like social media as a whole, Facebook is constantly changing and evolving, and keeping up with the updates will help you maximize your
social media reach and avoid missed opportunities.


Getting started - Affiliate Marketing:

As a Facebook account holder, start the affiliate marketer procedure by sharing information on products on your own page. However, even though this may be an easy method, it may also be less effective. Yes, your information may be viewed by people who know and trust you, but may not get the message that you intend selling something to them. Rather, instead of selling directly, try writing different updates to test out what sells and what doesn’t. Thoroughly scrutinize your wording, links posted and check which posts attract the maximum interaction. This testing is a foolproof method of checking out your affiliate marketing strategy on Facebook before going forward.

If you need professional help for such activities, Contentmart can always be at your service. It has a team of professional writers that will churn out customized copy and product descriptions exactly the way you want them. Undoubtedly, it will increase your views and convert leads into sales, making you laugh all the way to the bank.

Create a Facebook Account
Owning an account on Facebook may help you make a lot of money. You can't create a page or group anonymously. Facebook allows every member to have at least 1 - 5k friends. Let's assume you have 4k friends, whenever you post at least 2k would review your updates. You can use this opportunity to attract people to click your link and probably make purchases

Creating a Public Group:
You can also make a website directly on Facebook for posting information along with affiliate links. Consequently, anyone clicking on such links or making purchases will help you in earning your commission.

Successful groups are created by choosing a specific niche first. This in other words means addressing the appropriate and right audience. Well-constructed posts that are based on correct psychographic and demographic studies of your target audience will help you easily promote the right services and products to them.

Start with a few close friends who will help you reach others through their networks because they already trust you. Don’t stick only to products that get you commissions because this usually looks a trifle canny. Instead, provide useful posts and products, even though not all are affiliate linked. When people visit the group page and seeing that numerous products are being promoted, their trust in you and your opinion increases.

Fans Page creation:
For those with existing blog set ups, creating a separate Facebook page is a must. This will be a most effective way for promoting your affiliate links, blogs and any other relevant information. Groups encourage interaction by their inherent nature. Facebook even provides step-by-step instructions – so don’t use your personal account to market and promote your business. Your Facebook business page is a window into your company and your brand. Make your business page stand out by creating a recognizable vanity URL as an extension to the Facebook address (for example, facebook.com/flowdiaryblog)

Pages help to keep your targeted audience updated about the latest content that you’ve put up. However, groups may sometimes be a little difficult to manage, and the page is a more straightforward approach. Continuing to post powerful and relevant content for the audience’s benefit keeps them perpetually engaged. That’s why asking questions, sharing videos & linking to affiliated link posts or to specific services and products directly makes more sense.

Ads on Facebook:

If done well, ads on Facebook can really impact your online visibility and inevitably increase your sales. Although Facebook’s guidelines on the look of the ad are strict and you may have to submit repeated requests for ad placements, perseverance on your part will most certainly pay off.

Your ads will aid substantially in promoting affiliate links and certain products and also assume significance when paired with your blog. However, using images is a must and appropriate images need to be tested out to select the best one for the ad. Eye-catching images engage more visitors and lead to more sales.

Promote Posts:

If entire ad campaigns sound a trifle daunting, you can even consider promoting selected posts. If one such post performs well, boost it to enhance sales. This could be an effective middle ground for those who don’t have enough drive, time or desire to go image hunting for a visually attractive ad campaign, yet wish to be successful Facebook marketing affiliates.
