Simple Secret in Making Money from Facebook

By Affiliate Hat On January 31, 2010 Under Affiliate Tips, Featured Post, Pay Per Click, Promoting Offers

Ok sorry for being hysterical in the title. By now you should already know that there is no such thing as secret in affiliate marketing. Or to be more specific, a secret that would literally explode your profits. Again affiliate marketing is all about testing and tweaking and the more you learn from your data, the more you will earn.

Before, it’s very easy to profit from Facebook. All you need to do is run that shady email submit and get it in front of as many as audience as possible. Time flies very fast and now with all those new terms, a lot of people find making money from Facebook impossible.

If you get lazy to do a good ad copy, most of the times it will just get rejected. Even if you do a good copy, sometimes it will get rejected even. The key there is by getting into the smallest niche or what is called microniches.

A good example. If you’re going to run a quiz offer where you are going to target literally everyone, target the tag entertainment and have as much people see the ad, are you going to make money? I doubt!

There’s no secret but here’s one thing you’ve got to bare in mind. When you promote something on Facebook, make sure you laser target your audience according to the offer you’re promoting. For instance, if you’re promoting the Avatar Quiz Offer, then target not just the Avatar movie avid fans. Target them by age, whether they’re single or not and stuffs. Do you think a 40 yr.old woman would be interested to take that quiz? I bet not! Or will an 11 year old devoted fan have the money to pay for the subscription? Naah!

At the end of the day, it’s just about simply trying to get as deep as possible. While you may get lesser impressions by doing this, it may literally double your EPC. What are you gonna do with 10 mil impressions and no leads? and on the flip side, how about 10000 impressions and 10 leads? Remember, the more your ad is clicked, the more it will be displayed. And the bottom line is that the cost per click would be much cheaper if you’re ad is getting clicked often.

What say you?

Aimen to that brother, Facebook is a super targeted marketing platform and not to be used by amateurs. If you don’t know your market well enough you will lose money.

Sweet post. I’ve been reading some of your stuff for a while, but this is the first time I’ve taken the time to comment.

I’ve been slow in trying my hand at serious affiliate/ppc marketing because there is so much involved. I think you really make great point that will help any new marketer think more about what they are doing.

It takes time and tweeking to be successful. I’m a stats/tweeking junkie, so I think I’ll love the world of PPC marketing, but spending the money and picking the right products is a little scary. Any leap of faith tips? :)

I don’t really agree. A lot of my noob friends get started with Facebook ads and its far easier to learn this method rather than using Adwords or YSM.

But it all boils down on not being lazy to do tweaking and testing.
