So we all know that affiliate marketing isn’t the “easiest” thing in the world. I am sure you can all find other jobs, businesses and activities that are probably easier than affiliate marketing. With that said I think it’s also important to realize how easy it is when compared to the revenue you can generate from it. Working at home, sitting on my computer, marketing other people’s products and earning money is a lot easier than being the CEO of some major corporation, and I probably make close to the same money. So when you put it in perspective it’s not really “that hard”, right?
Anyway the goal of this post is to share with you one thing that you absolutely must do as an affiliate. You have to target the customer YOU want and ONLY that customer. You don’t get paid when people just browse around you need them purchasing things so you can earn commissions. One of the easiest ways I have found to really refine and target your audience is to use Facebook as a marketing platform.
Remember when you sign up on Facebook they ask you just about every questions you could possible dream of about yourself which is a marketers dream. Now as an advertisers on Facebook you can target by things such as age, gender, relationship status, college, education level, city, state, hobbies, interest and so much more. This makes targeting that exact customer pretty easy.
Over the next few weeks I am going to share some really cool Facebook marketing tips with you so it’s best you don’t miss any of the blogs coming your way…
Here’s my tip for this week.
Use the Facebook “Birthday” feature. This allows you to target people on their birthday’s. So let’s say you have an ad running that says something like:
Click here for your gift
Now the ONLY people that will see this are people who login to Facebook on their birthday’s. This allows you to use “happy birthday” in your ad and really increase your click through ratios….. go use it! Check back next week for more tips!
