Affiliate Marketing on FB?

8 replies
Hey Guys,

I started this topic in another forum and it was suggested to come here

I have two quick questions:

1. Will I now get banned on FB for using a program to gather custom audiences?
2. Does FB hate affiliate marketing now or are they just turning down certain niches?

Thanks
-Erick

    Hello Erick,

    For your questions,

    1. What program are you planning to use to gather custom audiences? For me, as long you don't use that program excessively or too much, for sure your account might be still safe. Just try to slow things down, and everything will be fine.

    2. For me, I don't think Facebook hates affiliate marketing or turning down niches (maybe if those niches are too violent for us to discuss and watch). Affiliate marketing is still very effective on Facebook, as long you give value to the end-customer first than direct sales pitching.

    I hope this answers your question Erick. Let me know if you have any additional questions. Cheers!

    Jeff

    It might depend on how you are planning to promote your link. Are you trying to use affiliate marketing on Facebook ads or as part of your page or group? From what I have seen, affiliate links are acceptable (maybe with redirect or cloaking) via Facebook ads.

    All I keep hearing is that they are deleting ads that are in the work at home niche.

    What I would suggest to keep yourself safe is to find other places to advertise your business. Test them out and have as many as possible so that if one day FB deletes your ads, you are still getting traffic and making sales.

      With work from home, you can creat a squezz page and redirect your link offer ,after you can get their emai and send your offer until they buy your product
      Good luck

    No you will not get banned for using these programs. There's nothing wrong with that.

    1. Don't think you will get banned

    2. FB likes money. However, they don't like links that say they lead to one place, and actually goes somewhere else.



    Also, in regards to the PM with the PDF and video links you recently sent me:

    The video link works, but not the link for the PDF.

      I've been promoting on Facebook for about 5 years, and the only time they've ever given me any problems was when I tried promoting "work at home" offers. This was a couple years ago, but I haven't heard anything about them becoming more lenient on the topic.

    I'm predicting that Facebook will eventually go down the same route that Google Adwords did...

    i.e. they'll look at the percentage of advertising revenue that comes from Affiliate Marketers (let's just say that percentage is 5% of revenue for argument's sake)...

    ...and they'll look at how much of their resources are used to stop the dodgy affiliate marketer's advertising scams (let's say for argument's sake it is 50%...

    ...and they'll say to themselves, "It's just not worth it!".

    They they'll change their policy to not allow you to advertise affiliate links (especially 'make money from home' opportunities)...

    ...and all affiliates will get banned en masse. Just like Google Adwords did to Clickbank affiliates in 2009.

    Unfortunately, the good affiliates will get thrown out with the bad, because it's just not worth Facebook's efforts to work out the good affiliates (the majority) from the bad ones.

    So sadly, the dodgy Internet marketers out there will ruin it for everyone.

    At the end of the day, it's best to always have your own website (and eventually your own products) and always have quality, unique content. That way, you can't lose.

    Even if Facebook does shut down paid advertising for affiliate marketers, or the MMO niche, there are always other alternatives.

    Never keep all your eggs in one basket
