    It's a better idea to use that traffic to build your list (your asset) first,
    and then:

    -> Use a redirect after collecting the email to the affiliate product (a soft redirect with a loading page like "Meanwhile don't miss this special offer".

    -> Use an AR sequence (4/7 days) to sell that product and maybe some more.

    Best Regards,

    Diego.

      Hey pal,advertising affiliate products with paid traffic is tricky and when you dont know how then it gets "painful".But paid traffic like adwords can have immediate results and if you know how to do it correctly ,then you can make a lot of sales.But keep in mind that the commission you get from an affiliate product should be high enough to cover your expenses.

    Starting with say Bing or Google I feel it might me a little easier to grasp the optimization part. People are coming to the search engine and is looking for what you have and your able to put your product and services right in front of them at the exact moment. With say facebook your on a social media platform and people are in a different mindset so your marketing or lead in might be a little difernt than say direct linking with PPC

    I wouldn't direct link any paid traffic sources to an affiliate link. Most people don't buy 'instantly'. It would be better to create traffic around you as a marketer who is a valuable source to your target market. People buy into people who they consider a valuable asset. After value comes 'credibility' and then selling online becomes a lot easier. This is a process.

    I agree.

    In my experience, if people aren't actively searching for what you are offering, it's tough to make a profit off ads.

    FB produces "surfer" traffic. I've built large lists off FB ads that were basically worthless.

    Typically you are better off using a landing page to pre-sell your traffic/visitors..
    You'd be even better off to collect email addresses and build a list, then sell them products

      I'd stay away from Google for anyone just starting out. Bing is an ok choice though.

    If you can get access to a $150 Adwords credit then I would definitely test that out. I believe all new Adwords members receive a voucher for around that amount still.

  • You can get a free $50 with Bing ads too which is more flexible than Facebook.

    No, i'd build a list.

    My Mentor Ace Reddy always says "Direct Link to the test the offer, but build a list when you're scaling up".

    Reasons why you should build a list : -

    1. A list is an asset! - You'll have it in your auto-responder so even if all ad accounts ban you, you can still email offers to your list.

    2. You can promote more stuff to your list! - You can promote different offers to your list, as the guy that buys once isn't going to stop buying, he'll keep buying so you can keep selling.

    3. Later down the line, you can even sell this list to an advertiser to make a ton of cash.

    4. If you're in the MMO niche - you can even support Launches by "Gurus" by becoming a Jv and promoting their offer to make a killing.

    Thanks

    I would not go with Facebook for the affiliate program on Digital Products.
    Reason: People come on Facebook for web browsing not for buying purpose.

    The best way to promote your digital product through paid search engines traffic (organic traffic). Its called PPC(Pay Per Click) traffic. I would recommend you to advertise your product on Google Adwords/ Bing Ads/ 7search etc. Of-course buy the search traffic only. Not content traffic.

    Of-course you have to target the best buying keywords. Better targeting is mostly important for you because, you're going to sell some product that worth of spending money. Try to target your closely targeted keywords.
    (Keyword Research is Mostly Important to Get a Good Result)

    Create a beautiful landing page where a Optin form will be prompted to provide you their name & email. So, you dont need any additional squeeze page.

    As people will buy the product, try to launch your product on such a good marketplace where people will trust you to buy the product.

    Be more professional. Make your website under https://
    People always try to keep safer from credit card/ identity theft. Better, get some public video reviews on your product & service. And create a facebook fan-page where your past buyers will discuss regarding your product. So, your new clients Trust-Level will automatically be high.

    Hope you will love my ideas. Tnx!

    Hi there! I recommend you integrating an offerwall. This affiliate marketing tool will allow you to display offers in exchange for rewards...

    I've been using this tool for more than a year now and everything seems doing great!

    All the best!

      Facebook doesn't like these "make money quickly and easily" schemes. That may be the reason, as well as things like too much text on your ads.

      However, Google AdWords might be an (expensive) option. Maybe you can go for Twitter as well. Another thing I heard a lot of good stuff about is Reddit, but I'm not quite sure about the targeting there.

    The best way is to build your backlinks imo. PPC is for time being but if your backlinks are strong than you do not need PPC on regular basis.

      SEO requires enormous efforts and patience though, at least if you are in a competitive niche.

    Hi tunydaniel! My suggestion is to go for affiliate campaigns that really make money. Now I know that there are a lot of campaigns to choose from, so I suggest you choose the one that really suits your needs.

    Like me for instance, I'm using an offerwall tool provided by my affiliate partner since it allows me to display different offers which my users can avail in exchange for cash. I love using it since I can integrate it anywhere I want (website, app, even in FB) and make money in an instant!

    The bottom line is you choose the BEST affiliate marketing campaign that will work for you whether it would be PPC, PPI. etc. And please make sure that you are sign up with a reputable affiliate company to avoid being scammed...

    I sincerely hope I was able to help you with this advice...

    Affiliate Marketing and PPC advertising have a mixed relationship. Does it work Sure, it can. Many people have made hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars combining Affiliate Marketing with PPC.While those sites get far less traffic than Google, the Yahoo and Bing ad network typically costs less per click than Google.

    As others are saying, you'll almost certainly make better money by building a list, than by sending direct to offers.

    Also, I've read more than one person say that they get much better conversion-rates by writing a well-thought-out fact-based comparison of 3 similar products, with a clear recommendation of which one is best and why, than from sending to any single offer.

    Just to make sure you understand testing, since most people don't . . . because random events in the real world are a LOT more clustered than people assume, a good rule of thumb is that you need to spend 4 times as much on PPC, as the profit you'd get from your affiliate commission from one sale.

    So that means if you'd make $100 commission from one sale, you need to spend $400 on PPC, for EACH test. So, if you change one word in your ad (which can sometimes double or halve the conversion-rate) you need to spend another $400, to know whether that will increase or decrease conversion, overall.

    Hope this helps you understand what's really involved . . . even successful businesses just don't understand the basic mathematical concepts at all . . . I've had people say they want to buy 5 leads from me, for around $20, for an offer that would pay them $500, and think that they will know if it's profitable or not, from that! If they bought $2,000 worth of leads, they might get nothing for the first $1,900 spend, and then 5 conversions near the end. That's the way random events work.

    This is why so many newbies fail at this kind of thing, because the exact same results that an expert would get, i.e. losing money on the first few tests, the newbie thinks that indicates that they have "failed" and the expert realizes that they need to test a lot more, and try many different alternatives, before they have a chance at a profitable system (then once they've got it profitable, they up-scale rapidly, for big money).

      I am only a few months in but that thing that in first 1900$ you can get nothing and then a lot of sales in 100$ is so true. That is why it is very important to let the campaign run and give it some time to show its nature and behavior.

    Hey there!


    If you looking to promote make money online products on FB and direct link forget it they will never approve your ads


    You can set up a funnel then send your FB ads to a squeeze page!


    However, if your really interested in direct linking use bing


    but keep in mind direct linking is only usually a 1-2% conversion rate


    your sales will be ten times more when you have a funnel!

    No I would not do this for affiliate marketing no PPC tried it and it cost me a lot of money. One method I use is
    1 Find the problem first
    2 then find the product to solve that problem.
    Works very well But never pay for advertising before you have tried free advertising Because if you cannot sell using free advertising then paid advertising is not going to make people purchase either. Test it out with free advertising first.
    Robert

    I always say never pay to promote anything until you can sell it using free methods. Because if you cannot get a interest in using free methods you will never sell it via paid methods . Find out what problem this product will solve. Then put it in front of the people who need this product. In actual fact I find the problem first then look for the solution To me it sells better. Robert
