Make money messing around on FacebookBusiness
Did you know that social media has become one of the biggest drivers of sales and new customers for businesses? Companies that used to spend millions of dollars on radio advertising, TV commercials and billboard signs, are now shifting huge chunks of their marketing budgets to social media sites like Facebook.
Imagine if you could get paid for the actions you take on Facebook?
How great would it be if you could get paid every time you ‘liked’ a page, shared an article or left a comment. Instead of wasting all those hours you spend on Facebook, you could turn them into a way to make some extra cash. That would be pretty awesome right? Well now you can! And the key to all of this is affiliate marketing.
So what exactly is affiliate marketing? At it’s most basic level, affiliate marketing is when a business pays you a commission or fee, for helping them get new customers or sales for their business.
For example, a business that sells a weight loss program online for $100, may have an affiliate program that pays 50% commission for each sale you help them generate. You could join this affiliate program and then get paid for telling people about the businesses website.
As the affiliate program pays 50% commission, and the product sells for $100, you would get paid $50 for each customer that you send to that businesses website.
It’s that easy.
If you were an affiliate for this weight loss course, all you would need to do is find people who are interested in weight loss, get them to click on your affiliate link (which will take them to the businesses website) and then you get paid $50 for every person that buys the product.
Facebook is the perfect place to make money doing this as an affiliate, because through their Facebook accounts people tell you exactly what they are interested in (and therefore what they may be interested in buying!).
