You need to warm up to your audience first, You’re in this for the successful long haul, right?!?!
How To Make Facebook Affiliate Advertising Successful
When you receive a product recommendation from a friend and one from a stranger, which recommendation are you going to take?
A friend whom you know, like, and trust, of course!
And the same thing applies to affiliate marketing.
Just because you followed the great Facebook ad examples, wrote your perfect story copy, and hired the top rated graphics guy on Fiverr, that doesn’t amount to crap if you’re just some person selling something.
You look pretty, you look the part, but that is not enough anymore.
The information era has passed my friend, the new game is attention and it takes energy to earn and keep attention, not a plug and play template.
Become A Trusted Advisor Instead
It takes time to build trust and a solid relationship with people.
You can’t just randomly post an ad on Facebook about a product and expect people to flock your way.
Establish a following, grow a tribe, become a trusted advisor and position yourself as someone who cares and is eager to solve their problems.
But how do you do it?
How do you build a relationship with a cold audience that gives you the right to offer hundreds of products?
3 Step Facebook Affiliate Marketing Strategy That Works
With the foundation of relationship and not spam established.
You need to only master two things to make a crazy amount of money from affiliate marketing.
Enhancing those Leads Lives
What you must understand is that every new affiliate marketing customer is on a journey, a road to a specific goal and destination and along that road they need to, over time, purchase hundreds of products.
When you understand this fundamental shift that few have caught up on, you leave the clickbaiters behind in the dust and no longer have to concoct new tricky plans every 3- months for the rest of your life.
All you do is take one group of people from point A, B, or C, to Z over time.
Want more chances than one to get sales from your affiliate products?
How about over 50 chances to earn commissions from each customer every year?
Capture an email address and you have that opportunity.
How do you capture an email address?
Everybody likes free stuff.
You go to the store, spot the latest energy bar, and get pretty excited to try a free sample.
Or you go browsing for an online class to develop yourself and start by checking out the free classes offered to make sure you’re really gonna like this platform before making a commitment and actually enrolling in a class.
Your audience wants the same thing!
Give them free stuff that can solve their problems and they’ll give you their email in exchange for that free help.
Do they have a problem dealing with their kid who has a habit of throwing tantrums?
Give them access to your eBook or a how-to guide to pacify their kids naturally.
It must be something that’s not just free; it should actually work and provide the results they are looking for on the journey to accomplish their goals.
Don’t just get emails and burn the bridge on day one, do this...
Deliver According to Your Promise
Will that “How to Calm Your Child in 10 Minutes” eBook really give them the result they expect in 10 minutes?
Does that “Learn to Play Electric Guitar in 1 Week” how-to guide really work in helping on their way to becoming a rockstar?
When you promise them something, be sure to deliver results!
This is how you can gain the trust of your audience and then they’ll continue to want your advice on what products and services to buy.
That’s how you earn affiliate commissions!
But you’re not just going to get their email address, you can immediately offer your first affiliate link with a bridge page.
2) Build a Bridge Page and Introduce Yourself - Your First Click Opportunity
A bridge page in your sales funnel does three things for you.
1. You get to say hey to your new subscriber
2. You confirm to them that you're going to deliver the free thing they gave you their email address for
3. You bridge them from a new subscriber to a new potential customer.
On your Bridge page you want to let them know the type of emails they are going to be receiving and get them excited that you are going to help them with their number one desire on an ongoing basis.
A video sales letter is great on your Bridge page.
In your sales copy, talk about where you've been and how you can help them with their goals, you can additionally recommend to them the first affiliate product that will help them.
In the child tantrum faced parent, you can offer them links to buy homeopathic medicines that additionally help with calming a child and bringing her Focus, you could offer a subscription to a kids accomplish tasks challenges app, or many other things that will help the mom that has a child that throws fits.
By having a bridge page you get to connect with your new subscriber, your new lifelong customer for the very first time, introduce yourself and have the opportunity for your first affiliate commissions.
But we haven't reached the actual Monumental gold mine in an affiliate marketing business yet.
3) Win With an Engaged List - Hundreds of Click Opportunities
You get to email your new subscriber forever!
You should begin right now sending emails to a friend that has the same problem your target audience has 3-7 times per week.
This is where the cream rises to the top in affiliate marketing.
A successful email autoresponder campaign will follow a formula of give, give, give, ask emails that will cement their trust in you.
Email 1, 2, 3 will be all about them. You give them a link to a YouTube video that will help them, a free article to read, a podcast interview that comes alongside solving their biggest problem.
Then, email 4 or 5 is where you recommend the affiliate product you’re offering, and this is only after you have shared stories with them, gave them free stuff, free advice, etc, that helped them in their journey.
This puts the likelihood of them checking out your affiliate link and clicking through, watching the video sales letter, and even considering signing up for that product that will get you that commission.
