Facebook traffic is MASSIVE. And the best part about it is that you can get LASER TARGETED traffic at low cost. I'm talking about 0.05 - 0.20 CPC.
There is simply NO other traffic source at the time of writing that gives you a SUPER TARGETED audience at such low costs. You'd be crazy if you are not even trying this traffic source out.
NOTE: Many of our top affiliates are primarily driving traffic via Facebook ADs and Community Pages. The top affiliates rake in close to ~$10,500 in net profits PER DAY!
In this article, I'm going to break down how you can get easy commissions via Facebook ADs and Community Pages promoting TedsWoodworking. So listen up because this might just be the best advice you can use as an affiliate.
Also, I'm going to assume you already have a Facebook AD account or know how to sign up for one. In not, google it. There're plenty of free articles to teach you how to sign up. So lets get started:
With your first AD, I recommend you only start with Newsfeed and Mobile targeting.
You can however, target all sources (we've affiliates that do that) but MAKE SURE you split test your ADs and disable those with poor ROI.
This is often times the most important part of your campaign. Here is detailed demographics for TedsWoodworking:
Choosing the right audience is essential for a successful Facebook ads campaigns. You need laser-focused targeting. Start with a defined audience size (arrow in the middle).
As you scale, you can go broader within the woodworking interests. You can add more interests as long as they are related to woodworking.
You don't have to worry about education level, status etc. The top 3 targeting options above is more than enough to see success in your campaigns. Don't over complicate things.
Do NOT use your direct affiliate link as the landing page on your Facebook AD.
3 reasons why:
Lets assume you have your own domain: woodworkingsite.com
For all Facebook traffic (ADs or Posts) - make sure you include your own domain/site (woodworkingsite.com and NOT your clickbank hoplink or your affiliate link)
Once visitor lands on woodworkingsite.com, you can include your affiliate links on the page.
(TIP: Include the custom affiliate link that gives the visitor 50 free plans): https://www.tedswoodworking.com/go.php?offer=YourClickBankID&pid=10
On your landing page, you also can try using an opt-in page so that you can collect email address and promote TedsWoodworking in your emails.
I would HIGHLY recommend you use TID tracking codes for your affiliate links. You can read more about tracking IDs on Clickbanks help page
If a sale was made via your Facebook ADs, in the sales reporting you would see that Tracking ID listed in the TID column, indicating how many of that tracking ID is accounted for the sales.
Due to the huge amount of requests, we only place Facebook tracking pixels on the thank-you page if certain requirements are met. (at least 200 front end sales per month or you're a platinum affiliate).
I'd say the importance of the image is 90%. The copy is just about 10%.
In Facebook ADs, the most important element is choosing the right image to INTERRUPT your audience.
The audience on Facebook is VERY different from those searching on Google. They're primarily there to interact with friends, gossip, etc. You need the right image, targeted at your audience to STOP THEM in their tracks.
Try to create an ad that uses natural text versus something that seems like an advertisement. Imagine what you naturally write / post on Facebook compared something that seems like a paid placement.
HOT TIP TO GET IMAGES:
Forums and communities are a GREAT way to source for woodworking images. DO NOT use professional stock photos. They usually fail badly on Facebook ADs with poor CTR.
Look for "home-made" type of woodworking projects. These get the highest CTR.
The copy doesn't really matter much in our experience. The image is about 90% of the work. The copy just asks for the action. (eg: Click here to get free plans! or Get Access to 16,000 plans etc)
Remember to SPLIT-TEST. Ideally you should run 6-10 images and copy at once. Pause those with CTR of less than 0.05%.
Remember to take note of advertising decays. Over time you need to refresh your advertising, even if it’s working, to prevent it from going stale.
Once you found a winning formula and your Clickbank commission sales start raking up, spend as much as you can while you can. You'll hit the daily spending limit. Facebook will increase your budget and you can start scaling it up further.
Our top affiliates spend between $5,000 to $10,000 PER DAY on Facebook ADs and they are killing it. With this guide, I hope you can join in on the fun :>
I hoped this has educate and inspired you. But MORE IMPORTANTLY, you need to TAKE ACTION today...
