Can I Still Use Amazon Affiliate on 20K FB Fanpage After Company Said No To Paid Campaign Ads?

6 replies
I built up a fan page up 20K people (took almost a year to do) on Facebook using a comic book character using paid ads on Facebook about a year ago. Ive spent quite a bit of money and extra work to build this up. I was posting content maybe three times a week that included pics of this comic book character from the internet. One day the head guy of the social media contacted me with this...

One thing we noticed though, is that you're using the characters images to run paid sponsored Ads through Facebook. By doing that, it's affecting our corporate page's ability to serve the official page campaign to our audience, along with our licensees ability. We only allow our licensees to run paid social campaigns, and that's with permission. We're happy to have you out there supporting our page, but we would ask that you please stop with the paid campaigns/ads. If you would like to use our social artwork as content, it would be most appreciated if you would 'share' from our official page.

Ive talked to a few people who are somewhat professionals on this field of making income via Facebook ads, and they said I can still post affiliate links such as Amazon or whatever.

That all they asked me to do is stop promoting my page through paid ads ( I was paying ads on Facebook to promote my page) and maybe to share some content from their site.

But I did want to ask here because I have not even touched the site for over a year now.

1) Will it be ok to post affiliate links like Amazon?
2) Can I still continue posting content like that ive been doing? I will also share much of their work on my Fanpage

Much thanks

    What I do is, I not promote my page, I promote my posts.

    It's a big difference and much more cost effective.

    Because I target not my own followers but followers of other pages.

    Promoting a post you can do from every account/page.

      Much thanks for this. I will try that with other posts. I know Amazon says you can directly made an ad on Facebook, but Im not sure how this would fit with promoting a post.

    Are you still going to use their images and/or other trademarks for your ads/postings?

      At the moment I'm not. I'm going to just share their post on to my page (which says that I can do).

      I know they don't want me to run ads promoting my page but from what I've been told from a few others (which Im checking here), Im fine with posting Amazon affiliate links which their own email doesnt mention.

      But I want to be careful and tread lightly, thus why Im double checking here.

    Trying to get second opinions but my hunch says to back off from the Facebook Fan Page. The main issue is with just me running ads to promote my page (the side bar ads), not the Amazon links.

    Just wondering what others think.

    Reach out to Fred Lam. He is the KING of Facebook Ads. I'm enrolled in his Facebook Ad course and I will say this, Facebook is extremely strict about what you advertise and they will not hesitate to shut down your account if you violate their terms of agreement.

    I would recommend promoting posts and not your page. Although if Facebook has reached out to you, I would back off for a little while until you get clarification.
