If done in the right way then affiliate marketing with Facebook ads can be extremely profitable. You need to have a proper mindset and strategy to run profitable Facebook ads for the longterm.
In this post, I’ll show you the proper way to do affiliate marketing with Facebook ads.
Affiliate Products To Promote With Facebook Ads
You need to think about a good return on investment while running Facebook ads to promote affiliate products.
So, It is the best thing to choose affiliate products that has a recurring revenue model of payment.
It means if you are able to make someone signup to a platform. Then you’ll get paid for a lifetime until that person stops doing the transaction in that platform.
Choosing this type of affiliate product is one of the smart decisions you can take for your success in affiliate marketing with Facebook ads.
You don’t even need to promote to make sales directly. Instead you can attract them for free trails or demo. So, It can be far easier for you to convince someone to try before they buy through Facebook ads.
Create A Trustable Facebook Page
Most people create a random Facebook page to run Facebook ads but you can think of creating a brand.
You can promote one product or multiple products of similar type through that page.
People buy from people they trust. You need to practically implement things to gain the trust of those people who visit your Facebook page.
To do this, you need to post valuable information around the affiliate products that you are trying to promote.
This information should be genuine and shocking for people. You can do some research and find things that are more interesting and packed with value.
It’ll help you to get more sign up whenever people want to learn more about your page by seeing your Facebook ads.
Additionally, Your shocking and valuable information can be shared by various people which can bring additional signups for you.
Decide Your Budget For Facebook Ads
You need to decide on a fixed budget for a particular campaign to get the best results while doing affiliate marketing with Facebook ads.
People often make mistakes while deciding a budget to run Facebook ads.
I have seen people running Facebook ads with a $5 per day budget and they stop their ads when they don’t see any result within 1 day.
Facebook itself takes a minimum of 3 days to fully optimize your campaign.
I would suggest you decide the budget for a minimum of 3 days.
Let’s say you can spend $100 on Facebook ads for 3 days. Now you can decide a minimum ROI of $30.
This means you are expecting a profit of 30 cents by investing $1. Now you can make a campaign and see the result of your campaign.
If you are able to get a good amount of sign up then you can create another adset and start to scale the campaign according to your budget.
You’ll not see income at the start but within some weeks you can analyze whether those sign up are becoming a paid customer or not.
If yes then continue to scale. If no then stop that campaign and launch another campaign with different ad copies and targeting.

Facebook does not allow you to use affiliate links directly. So, you must use a landing page to do affiliate marketing with Facebook ads.

Squeeze Page: is a type of sales page but it consists of a signup form where people must submit their email in exchange for some free ebook or information.
Once they enter their email then you can redirect them to your sales page or to your affiliate products directly.
You can use those captured emails to promote similar affiliate products in the future. However, you do need an email marketing software like Getresponse to build an email list.
