Need advice for Facebook page

31 replies
Hi guys. I need some advice regarding my Facebook page.

I am currently promoting an affiliate offer on my page, but am not sure if I should focus on just the one product or offer multiple products. What do you think is best?

Also, regarding the page layout and design. Do you think it would be wise to allow comments on my page and should the main image header be something related to my product, or can it be totally unrelated?

Thanks.

    I think your question is very important for all social profile keepers, cause all we promote our services without following any right strategy. I personally think promoted products can be different and the comments also must be acceptable.

    Thanks. Do you know if I can have more than one Facebook account? Also, should the image header reflect the product I offer, or can it be something totally different just to draw attention?

      Yes you can create multiple account but it should be different name etc. so that it will be difficult to know. Yes your image will reflect to the product that you're promoting because some of them will rely on the image to know what kind of product that you're promoting its just like you've seen yourself in the mirror it should be perfectly the same based on you image and the product that you promoted. It should not different images because it will cost confusion to your costumers or any viewers although yes it will draw some attention but they will not totally coming back to view your post again.

    • I would have a picture of the product in the header picture or at the very least as your profile picture and yes enable share, like and comments because you want people to interact with your page because the more they interact with the page the better chance there is of fb sending them your posts.

      Also if your cover pic is the product you dont have to keep hard selling to people (which I personally hate) but when they come to your page they will keep seeing it.

      Also ask a question. this keeps people interacting and that shows in their newsfeed at the side so then their friends can see their activity and then you will get other people checking out your page.

    I think its good to promote multiple products in one page to look it natural. Of course you must allow comments on your page to make your page interactive.

      Promote one offer and base all campaign on it. Set up facebook timeline page around your product, create fan page tab and inside the tab create squeeze page.
      Point your ad to your fan page tab app. Inside your follow up message can add other product links related to your main product.
      This is the way I do...

        How do I go about creating a fan page tab? Thanks.

          No, you can't. I mean, you can, as long as Facebook doesn't ban you. But you can have as many pages as you like under one account.

          I like your way much better than 'spamming' the page with plenty of different products.

            Hey AffiliateRg,

            I think you can offer one main product in your fan page targeted to a specific audience, and within all the posts of your page (or through apps) you may also promote other products closely related to the main offer and to your audience, using the same campaign.
            The page design should be related to the main offer.
            I use to pin the related post offers during a few days.
            If you promote only one offer in each page, you'll need to create a new campaign for the new page/offer and have a budget for each page.
            I'm promoting a main product and 2 related products in the same page, and it's working fairly well so far (let aside that I'm struggling to get more traffic).

              Thank you Roberto appreciate the advice! I have had an idea that I could post humorous, funny things to my main page with the aim of getting fans to keep coming back to my page. Any thoughts on this?

              If possible, please could you send me a link to your Facebook page so I can see how you are doing it. I will give you a like too for being so helpful! Regards, Richard

        Using a timeline sounds ideal for a product launch.
        ... Intro link: https://www.facebook.com/about/timeline

        When I do this, I'll have to try to avoid turning my FB account into a flee market, and focus on one thing at a time. ... and as pinkgorilla pointed out, best to avoid adding affiliate links... In fact, it sounds like it's best to avoid posting "any" affiliate links on FB - and just link to the appropriate page on your site instead.

    I also need to know what is the copyright stance on using pictures and videos that I do not own, and posting them to my Facebook page? I know that you can embed YouTube videos on any page, so presumably there is not copyright issue there, but I am not sure about using photos and articles that I haven't created myself. Please advise! Thanks

      It's very unlikely that you step into an issue due to posting a stock photo.
      Everybody is doing it in FB.
      Regarding articles, same consideration, but if you tweak them a bit or quote its author, no probs!
      Good luck!

    Hi folks,
    focusing on single product first because when you promoting single product rather than multiple your Facebook page is more interactive and bring more traffic easily. On the other hand when you go with multiple products your stuck chances increases and you made a mistake definitely. Affiliate marketing is good but if you plan like that as you mention on your questions, you stuck with your stuff and never achieve a goal on the right way.

      Hi concepteurs,
      Can you kindly explain "when you go with multiple products your stuck chances increases and you made a mistake definitely" ?
      Do you mean that in your experience the traffic and the Likes decrease with more than one offer in the same fan page?
      Thank you!

    Hi, The Facebook fan page was built specifically for the book and its main aim was to provide a community site on the largest social networking community on the planet that would engage and then share. So promote your products not depends with quantity. I think multiple products or service would be great for promoting there. Thanks

    I would just add one product as multiple products create confusion.. And less conversions. :-)

    Good question here and a great discussion, though a little challenging to answer without knowing the product. IMO, you can certainly promote more than one product if the products make sense together, in other words are very related so that the consumer gets a clear idea of who you are. But as others have said, if your products are not related this can cause confusion at least, and often lower conversion at worst, because you cannot have a laserlike strategy for the page built around that niche (and besides, would you trust a store that sold both birdhouses and security software to be a true expert in either?)

    Start off with one product. If you prove you can sell one, by all means increase to multiple.

    Test your header pic. There's no black and white answer.
