So you won’t be misled by how easy it can be, be advised on what you must NOT do!

Newbie mistake of assumption. If you are new at Facebook advertising, follow the guidelines about profiling and creating ads. Use Facebook advertising utilities and invest on their CPC or CPM advertising cost and then wait. There is nothing wrong with this scenario.

Ignoring the importance of local marketing. In Facebook advertising, you can set up what nation or location you are going to target.

Affiliate Marketing through Craigslist

File:Craigslist-logotyp.jpg
Craiglist is an extensive online community which has a great deal to offer to users of this community. With approximately four billion page views per month it should come as no surprise that Craigslist can offer a wealth of financial opportunities to savvy Internet marketers who know how to capitalize on the popularity of this website. Affiliate marketing is one of the ways knowledgeable Internet marketers can expand on the profitability of their websites. Craigslist provides wonderful opportunities for both ecommerce website owners seeking affiliates to market for them as well as those who are in the business of affiliate marketing who are looking for new opportunities to market for another business. This article will provide an explanation of affiliate marketing and will also provide information on how Craigslist can be used to either find affiliates or affiliate opportunities.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is essentially a marketing campaign in which the business owner only pays the affiliate based on performance. Unlike conventional marketing campaigns where the business owner pays for the advertising regardless of the results produced by the advertisements, in affiliate marketing the business owner only pays when a specific result is achieved. Affiliate marketing usually takes place in the following three forms:
Digital Marketing, Internet Marketing
* Pay Per Click
* Pay Per Sale
* Pay Per Lead

In a pay per click affiliate marketing campaign the affiliate places a coded link on their website and each time a visitor to their website clicks through the link to the sponsor is website, the affiliate receives a sum of money. The amount of money they receive is based on an agreement between the sponsor and the affiliate. This amount can be cents, dollars or even a fraction of a cent. In a pay per sale campaign the affiliate is not compensated when the visitor clicks through to the sponsor is website unless they also make a purchase when they click through this link. Again the amount of money the affiliate receives will depend on a pre-determined agreement and may be a specific amount or a percentage of the sale. In a pay per lead program the affiliate receives monetary compensation when a visitor clicks through the affiliate link and performs a specific action such as registering at the sponsor is website or requesting additional information.

Using Craigslist to Find Potential Affiliates

Business owners who are interested in finding affiliates to promote their website may use Craigslist for the purpose of finding these affiliates. It may seem logical to post affiliate opportunities in the jobs section of Craigslist but it is important to note this is against Craigslistis job posting policies. Review of the policy for posting jobs on Craigslist will verify these requirements. Therefore those who are interested in finding affiliates will have to take advantage of other areas of Craigslist to find affiliates.

Visiting discussion forums related to your business may be one way to find potential affiliates. However, when using the discussion forums, care should be taken to avoiding spamming the discussion forums with links to sign up for your affiliate program. Such spamming techniques are likely to not be taken seriously by potential affiliates and may incur more severe penalties by Craigslist moderators. The best way to find potential affiliates is to make logical contributions to discussions and get to know other participants offline or to include a link to more information on your affiliate marketing program whenever you post.

Using Craigslist to Find Opportunities for Affiliates

Those who generate a profit from acting as an affiliate for others can find new affiliate opportunities through Craigslist. Although posting these opportunities on the job boards are prohibited it is possible for advertisements of this nature to appear either because the original poster was not aware of the restrictions or because they deliberately ignored the restrictions. These types of advertisements are likely to be removed when discovered but they may exist for a short time without being noticed.

Those who act as affiliates can also find potential leads by placing advertisements in the services section or the resumes section. They may also find potential leads by networking with those in the discussion forums.

Using Facebook And Twitter Together For Your Business

While some will argue that Facebook and Twitter can never work
together to achieve a common goal in terms of business, this notion is really just a matter of professional adjustment. In online discussions, Facebook has been constantly related to personal contacts and updates while Twitter is more widely known for its professional purposes. And for a time, that impression was true until Facebook created its Fan Page.

With a Fan Page, profiles can be professional and used for business updates. Both continue to still have their own set of advantages of disadvantages though. As we have been discussing, Facebook can bring a social and emotional impact to your product much more naturally than Twitter can although it can also be subject to a lot of unnecessary clutter.

Twitter, on the other hand, gives fast and easy updates. The concept of microblogging can target a different market and can help you watch
what competition is doing.

Moreover, these two can actually work together in getting more
prospects. After all, there are people who still continue to use Twitter alone and some who still prefer opening just their Facebook page. So my question is, why not create two accounts to garner a wider market?

SOCIAL ADS

Social ads are a unique feature because they interact directly with the News Feeds of the people on your friends lists. This means that anyone who has you added as a friend will be able to see information about your business directly in their profile.

This also means that you can directly control who sees your ad and achieve targeted traffic rather effortlessly. When it comes to making sales, targeted traffic is what you want.

FACEBOOK PAGES

If you have a business, you should create your own Facebook Page for it. This is the same as your profile. By having a page for your business, you take full advantage of the site by allowing people to interact with your business. It also helps build your brand.

When someone on Facebook participates in your site, you know that you’ve won their support and potentially their business. They treat this page as they would any of their friends. People can write on the wall and participating in the experience of your page or profile.

It’s your job to encourage this interactive experience by adding applications, quizzes, games, starting a group, etc. Basically, you need to pick the activities that make sense for the brand you’re trying to build.

Building Internet Relationships Using The Social Networking Website Twitter

 

Many new users of Twitter are constantly asking how they can use
the site more effectively for their business and since the site has
grown into an Internet mega monster that is globally known and
talked about, they are right to ask. The fact is Twitter is a fantastic
tool for your IM business.

Internet relationships are very different from actual personal
relationships. They are based primarily on like, know, and trust.
Many people are reaching out to others through social network
websites like Twitter, Facebook and many others.

If you are new to Twitter you may not realize that you can create
your personal or business brand and virtually dominate your
market, simply by building a list of followers.

Let’s talk about some of the ways you can you achieve this.

Once you’ve set up your Twitter account you will want to work on
your profile. This way you can quickly customize the look and feel
of your page. You will want to pay close attention to your one line
bio. Because this is what people will read before they decide
whether or not they want to follow you. You will only have 160
characters to describe who you are and what you do, so you have
to make it good!

The next thing you will want to do is get ‘followers’. If you have
business contacts that are already using Twitter, invite them to
follow you. Put link’s in your emails, on your websites and blogs
asking people to follow you. You could even put your Twitter url on
your business card, so that you can gather followers offline as well.

Don’t be shy tell everyone you meet about your Twitter page. Make
is sound exciting and let them know that you will be sharing
important updates, great tips and information with them if they
follow you. You may be surprise to find out that almost everyone
will click the follow button just to see what you’re up too!

Another thing that I feel that is important especially for Internet
marketers is to seek out and follow the ‘gurus’ and the powerful
users of Twitter. This will benefit you in more than one way. It will
give you a bird’s eye view of what they’re doing on Twitter, so you
can learn how to improve your own results and it will also put you
in front of all the people they are in contact with.

Curiosity, you can’t fight it, so you may as well take advantage of
it. People are curious by nature! They like to see who is following
who, so often they will click on the links and check out the followers
of people they know and follow them as well and by following the leaders,
\so to speak you may naturally end up will new followers as well. Just try and
keep your target market in mind when you choose ‘gurus’ to follow.

Now let’s talk about meeting even more people and making
hundreds of new friends by using ‘retweet’s’.

Automating Your Marketing

One easy way of automating the list building process with Twitter is by using the services of www.SocialOomph.com

You can send out automatic direct messages to those who begin to follow your updates. These automated messages could include a direct link to your website, blog or better yet ñ your squeeze page where you offer each Twitter user a free incentive, such as a report, ebook, article content or guide based on your niche market.

When it comes to using Social Oomph to build your list and initiate first contact with those that follow you, be sure that the product you are offering on your squeeze page is extremely focused on your niche market and offers something of value.

You don t want to give away a product that is already saturated online, such as outdated PLR. Try to offer something original, even if its a short report or mini-product, the more exclusive it is to your list, the more likely that your visitors will subscribe to your newsletter.

Just like with every other social community, your marketing campaign needs to be tweaked and offered in a slightly very different format that caters to their desire to network with other like-minded individuals.

Le me cut the crap and go straight to what I have prepared for everyone , specially for those who are new to the CPA game.

The Truth is …

If done properly, PAID TRAFFIC is the most powerful way to generate highly targeted traffic and massive cash in short period of time.

But, if it is done in the wrong way, it is the reverse – very risky.
