    I have read many facebook marketing ebooks.
    And even followed them.
    But every time I am banned from Facebook!
    Facebook marketing is really very hard.

    Facebook marketing isnt hard, its just not something you can automate. You have to show up and actually engaged with people who are interested in what you have to say.

    My strategy on FB is simple, 20 mins commenting, liking and responding a day then put up one relevent link, maybe a cool article or video I found, a video or article of my own and sometimes just something random.

    People buy from people, on FB you have to be a real person.

    Work hard to get the first 100 friends, make sure they are targetted then the snowball effect will kick it.

    You have to put the effort in though otherwise dont bother trying as you are just wasting your time faffing around

      I agree, it takes work and time. No shortcuts to building relationships.

      Actually, the whole process can be automated very easily.

      Anyway, don't waste your time and money with Facebook - even though there is a lot of money in it, you will eventually get banned and have to start all over again.

    The fuss is because it gets more traffic than Google...

    I have not met anyone yet who makes good money from FB by doing marketing over there...

    I see a lot of people talking about how it does work, but no one who is making good money by doing it, and that is where I draw the line... If it does not provide a monetary return, how do you know it works?

    I have had enormous success advertising on Facebook.

    The targeting is like a laser-beam into the interests, demographics and conversations of 500 million+ users. If you know your niche well, you can optimize and experiment with your targeting to achieve unbelievable results.

    You can hear an interview with me about the subject from fellow Warrior Roxanne McHenry at her site.

    Happy to offer any help to fellow Warriors!

    You seriously need to watch this video if you would like to make money with facebook ads and if you want to learn something useful.

    It is a very short yet very effective video

    Facebook marketing rocks there is enormous amounts of traffic over there but you just need to test stuff out or you can be down fast.

    I was testing an offer the other day and increased my daily spend to $300 to get a fast burst of traffic when I looked back about 20 mins later it had burnt through like $50 and only made 20 back so you definatly need to be careful, but when you get it right there are some big paydays to be made.

    I watched a video the other day where a top facebook marketer was spending $40,000 a day on advertising all affiliate marketing, and beleive it there is that kind of volume 500,000,000+ users and 60% log on everyday.

      I have seen results with ground businesses...

      One leather artisan got 30% increase in sales when his daughter added the pictures of his bags to her picture galleries.

      I did an interview with him, but it is in Spanish...


      Another client of mine, publishes the new arrivals of their store, the clients reserve the merchandise from the pictures and go to pick them up later in the week... they also manage a lot of their customer service via the facebook wall.

      But, as you see... it is not affiliate marketing...

  • Facebook will help you build a large network for sure. You can use Facebook to complement you other efforts but Facebook marketing cannot be your main stream marketing strategy. No one comes to Facebook to buy things so don’t be mislead by false claims.

    I think people make more money selling facebook marketing guides than people make from selling on facebook. For me its a branding exercise not a direct selling tool.

    Facebook marketing has the best free traffic you can see. I am going to start a Facebook fan page soon and see how many people actually join, by NOT advertising it. It's amazing how Facebook traffic converts well with Google AdSense...

      Is this allowed by Adsense? I can´t imagine that advertisers want to buy untargeted Facebook traffic.
