Face book or twitter ,what u think?

24 replies
Hi all,

I'm looking for some feedback regarding using Facebook for marketing affiliate products.

I've been using Twitter for my quick traffic pushes and marketing my direct affiliate links with a moderate response and success rate but I'm being told I should be using Facebook as well.

What's your opinion? Is anyone using facebook for Affiliate Marketing and what sort of success are you getting?

    social media is great for bonding with your list, but the traffic quailty is crap. Just my option.

    I'm with Nickolie. You can get a lot of traffic from Facebook because of the number of users, but the quality of the traffic isn't comparable to what you'd get from Twitter. People seem to trust things they see on Twitter more than they do on Facebook.

    You can get traffic from Facebook back to your blog. You can affiliate offers on your blog. But you can also use Facebook advertising to send more people there.

    They both work. Twitter is better for fast results but followers come and go quickly. Facebook is more long term and requires much more time and effort. However, Facebook groups and fan pages can be a goldmine if properly nurtured.

    Yes, you should go with Facebook, you can get many options to do and they could make you huge profits. Not only you but all the big players are now investing in Facebook dude it's popularity and the features it provides to you.

    I've been using Facebook from one year, and I'm developed a lot with it. I get many visitors and with it I'm making decent amount of bucks too.

    Facebook, it's better than twitter. You get a lot of benefits. Twitter is limited.

  • Facebook is more flexible to advertise products rather than twitter. There are millions of facebook users so the possibility of getting traffic is million times. But twitter is limited with fewer visitors as most of the people are not a daily twitter users.

    You can use both. Twitter and facebook is part of social marketing, so combining the both will generate more traffic for you.

    I like Facebook more than Twitter but the best way is you use both.
    Also YouTube is a really great way to market your site.

    I would have to go with FB. As a matter of fact I saw an article in which it was stated that one shout, message etc. is seen by more people on FB than Twitter.

    Both social sites work.

    Some simple ideas for marketing with Facebook while automating your social selling and nurturing process:

    Connect your feeds from other social networks


    Create a group and organize physical and virtual meet ups


    Share photos of your business in action: office, employees, and clients


    Keep information flowing with statuses and social feeds

    Tweeters are clickers. You win when you give them a 'money link' to click on.

    You do both. But personally, I prefer Facebook for its visual appeal. And I agree that one FB post can be seen by more people. For some reason, I like the share & like options more than RTs. And yeah, throw Youtube in the bunch to expand your network.

    I like Facebook better than twitter marketing. For me the results are way better than twitter in terms of my marketing. I can get targeted using Facebook as well using fan pages.

      According to me, facebook is the best than twitter. Because it use worldwide. It is the largest site, and most of internet users like to use it, because it is very simple and looking very cool. It is interesting because it has nice online games which make it more interesting.

    I think to some extent it depends on what you are marketing. I think a business oriented product on Facebook is not likely to do well, but something targeted at consumers may do ok.

      Thats an interesting comment !

      If you set your social marketing up properly, you should be
      updating your twitter and your FB announcements as well as Diggs and a whole bunch of other sites with just one click of the mouse.

      I have not yet had a sale from my FB friends but I have got members to my forum and other sites from it.

    I go for Facebook if you understand how to place ads.

    You can actually target specific country, state or city
    for your products or services.

    Test it and you will be glad.

    Of course, twitter is limited. Consumes time to follow.

    Cheers,

    Olu
