I recently created my first affiliate site. I am using the site to promote 3 different but similar products. The other day I bought a fan page creator/system that I want to use. Here is my question. Should I have one fan page for my website or 3 individual fan pages for each affiliate product? Your input is greatly appreciated.

    A FB Fan page should not be built purely to promote aff products. After all it's a social platform where people interact with other likely-minded people in the space. if i were you, I'd create one for the site and start posting lots of interesting/informative/helpful contents related to your niche/products to engage fan page visitors (and get them like your page).

    You may know this already but a "one-way-hard-sell" approach is NO-NO in FB. Always focus on interacting with your fans and only soft-sell your products once in every few good posts. Obviously how you approach your fans can vary depending on your niche but that's the bottom-line rule when it comes to a FB marketing IMHO

    Good luck

      I agree with this statement People log into Facebook to be social, not being bombarded with advertisment. If you add value to your visitors it makes them want to buy from you

    If it's me, I will build 3 different Fan Page each to promote the 3 different product.

    Reason: it will convert better.

    You won't get a great response from the fans if you just stick your product on the fan page though, warning. Definitely don't have anything that requires them to whip out a credit card, because FB users aren't in the "buying mood" typically

    No you have to build a re-pore with the people and integrate the product, otherwise will not work.

    I'd go for one fan page per product. This way you get a more focused group of fans.

      I support this idea. Having one fan page per product too, you will be more organized.

    If you have FB fan pages you should really look into promoting CPA offers. Shoot me a message if you want to promote some incentive CPA offers on your fan pages! Good Luck!

      Create a fan page for each product, also don't just leave your link there expecting people to go onto a blank page and click on it, you will have to promote the page.

    None of the above...create a fanpage around an interesting topic related to that niche. People aren't going to like a fanpage about a brand as much as they will like page like this: My boyfriends friends need to stop hitting on me (for a dating product) That is more likely to go viral and get alot of likes rather then: How to Make Your Boyfriend Notice You

    Get it?

    Then you can market your product to those people interested in that niche.

      Well said! May I add, again try to engage your fans with helpful and useful content and from time to time promote your offers. However, place a lot more emphasis on getting them into your auto-responder. Once they are on your list you can then go be a bit more consistent with promoting your offers or affiliating products.

    Augie is on the right track. If you create a fan page around a topic, people will be much more interested. A FB user is less likely to join a fan page that is just about a product. They are looking for more than a sales page.

    Also, if you build around a topic, you can always promote other offers and future products. FB allows you to build a community and build trust in you as the fan page. Once you do this, people will be much more responsive to your offers.

    If they are three different styles of products,you should creat three fan pages to get better focus groups.But if they are similar ones,you should just creat one fan page to get more fans together.

    I will go for 3 products in a FB page since it is in the same niche.
    Just like all the above post, FB users are not going to whip out their credit cards.

    You should give others first, before they will give you anything.

    I agree with webskipper. Creating a page for the website and using it to promote the 3 products seem to be a better solution. That way it makes it more organized and easier to handle. And yes at the same time create some valuable content for fans.

    If it was me i would set up 3 different fan pages so the all have there own.

    i would include a sign up on each of the fan pages with an auto repsonder to promte the other offers to each fan page list!

    i would then use facebook ads to generate cheap facebook clicks and get ultra targeted cheap clicks to these offers!

    thanks

    Thanks for all the info. I did it so it's basically just promoting my "new age" website. There is no request for money on the page. I used a wso by David Guindon and one of the members here to create it. I think it looks pretty professional and not obnoxious at all! I created a new account that I linked it to and am posting both on this account and on the fanpage. Mostly inspirational quotes and things of that nature.

    I would make one fan page for my chosen niche and try to be as helpful as I can with content posted to that fan page... I wouldn't try to make hard sell because it won't really work... also, there are other types of possible promotions through Facebook fan page besides status updates and links... but if you have one general fan page you will be able to get more fans than to individual aff products pages (people will see it's a page about product you don't own, which could be reason not to like it)... if you have general fan page, you can promote more than 3 products to the larger number of fans...
