Do you know how to affiliate marketing with paid Facebook advertising the right way, or are you just filling Mr. Zuck’s pockets with cash while yours run dry?
I’ve been getting a lot of questions on Facebook advertising lately, and a lot of people have been saying the same thing. Hey I’m sending people to my affiliate marketing offers with Facebook ads, and I am not making any sales, what am I doing wrong?
So first off, if you’re sending or planning on sending people directly to an people Affiliate offer with Facebook ads, you’re just setting yourself up to fail.
Facebook doesn’t even allow you to send people directly to an affiliate offer, so if you’re trying that you’ll get banned, but even if they did allow you to do that, you still wouldn’t be successful with Facebook ads because you’re not building a relationship with your potential customers before you try to sell to them.
f you just try to drive people straight to an affiliate offer without ever building a relationship or any trust with them chances are you won’t make any money, and all that money that you’ve been spending on Facebook ads will be a complete waste.
So how do you go about building a relationship with your customers?
You offer them something for free that will help them go down the path of solving their problem, that your affiliate offer will end up resolving, and In exchange for that free info, they give you their email.
Now after the opt in you have two choices. You can either choose to send that person to an upsell page with a low ticket affiliate offer, or you can choose to just send them to a thank you page that lets them know their free content will be sent to their email, and that they can be expecting more free content from you over the next few days.
Regardless of if you chose to send them directly to your offer, or to an upsell page you are going to start your email follow up sequence.
This is going to be a sequence of 4 to 14 emails that will automatically be sent to all the people who opted in to your list and will give more free value to them, and get them ready to buy your affiliate offer.
After you’ve given them pure value for a few days, or even up to a whole week depending on your niche, then you are going to promote your affiliate offer to them.
Waiting a few days to promote your offer highly increases your chances of a person clicking through to your affiliate offer, and even considering buying it because you’ve now build that relationship with them, they no longer view as a random person on the Internet trying to sell them something, but instead they view you as a helpful friend that’s recommending a product to them.
So really the reason so many people are spending money on Facebook ads and not making any of the back is because they’re not taking the time to build a relationship and presell to their potential customers.
When you build an email list, and build a relationship with your potential customers you’re not only increasing your conversions on that original Facebook ad and affiliate offer, you are increasing the lifetime value of every person who sees your ad, which will make your ads profitable in the long term.
No more linking directly to an affiliate offer, or to a landing page where you don’t collect emails!
Always run your Facebook ads to a landing page where are you give away something for free in exchange for an email, send that person to an OTO or a thank you page, and then follow up with that with that lead over the next 4 to 14 days, providing tons of value, and only recommending your affiliate offer to them after you have built a relationship and trust with them.
If you do these things, then your Facebook ads will be profitable in the long term, and you’ll be able to create a successful affiliate marketing business.
