How to Run Facebook Ads That Converts As An Affiliate Marketer

What Is Facebook Affiliate Marketing?

Methods to Promote Affiliate Offers on Facebook

  • Have a strategy 
  • Use targeting options available on Facebook 
  • Make use of your audience insights 
  • Create multiple ad sets per campaign
  • Optimize campaigns based on performance

Now that you have established how to utilize Facebook ads for your affiliate marketing purposes, here are the methods to use.

1. Use Image And Video Ads to Promote Affiliate Offers on Facebook

Image ads perform much better than banner ads on Facebook so it is best to try and include them in your campaign rather than neglecting them. As we all know, we live in a content-rich world, so every rich media type will perform better than pure text ads. 

People usually respond better to actual images rather than text in Facebook ads because an image can convey a message in much less time. This means that you only have the user’s attention for less than 5 seconds when they land on your ad before they decide if they’re interested or not—and you need all the help you can get in this department!

2. Use Facebook Ads to Promote Offers on Other Websites

If you’re promoting offers on other websites such as sellz, it is always a good idea to use Facebook ads in conjunction with these promoted offers on the other sites. You want to have your affiliate offer pointing towards that website. Instead of just having a banner on that site, you’re going to have Facebook ads pointing the target website’s affiliate link towards it.

3. Use Text Ads to Promote Affiliate Offers on Facebook

Text ads also allow you to add a call-to-action button so if you want your ad to link directly to the product page, this is what you want to use. Text ads do not have a 240 character limit on Facebook, unlike image ads. However, they are generally more expensive than image ads.

4. Use Video Ads to Promote Affiliate Offers on Facebook

People love video content these days because it’s entertaining and informative at the same time. This is why you should consider using video advertisements as well as image and text ads on Facebook. You can include a call-to-action button in the video to direct people to the offer page.

One great benefit of using video ads is that Facebook allows you to customize the video length; however, you should keep it short and snappy!

5. Use Mobile Ads to Promote Affiliate Offers on Facebook

This is currently one of the best tactics you can try. As much as 75% of Facebook users access their accounts through mobile devices and if your target audience happens to fall within this category, you should be using mobile ads as well.

If you want people to respond specifically to your offer, it is best to include the call-to-action button in the ad so that users can take action immediately upon landing on your page. You’ll notice that Facebook has a limit of 2MB for image and video ads and only 1MB for text ads. That’s because Facebook uses mobile devices with low memory to display these types of ads.

6.Targeting and Placement of Facebook Ads for Affiliate Marketing

To make sure you get the most out of your ads, use Facebook audience insights to determine which users to target and where they are most likely to see your posts. This is a crucial step to affiliate marketing on Facebook.  You can find audience insights under each Facebook ad campaign.

Examples of How to Generate Leads

The following is a list of some of the best ways that you can generate leads using Facebook ads. Note: these are just examples, it doesn’t mean they will work for you. But if you think about it, this concept applies to just about any affiliate marketing program.

1. Brainstorm New Ideas 

The best way to come up with something that works is by thinking of your ideas first. If it’s something you would be interested in buying, chances are other people will too. You can always verify this by checking out the Sellz marketplace or even Googling it.

2. Facebook Retargeting 

Retargeting is when you reach back out to people who have already visited your website but left without converting into a customer (buyer). You can go into Facebook ads manager and create an ad with the Facebook pixel installed on your site. This will allow you to see the people that visit your website. Then, you can create an ad that sends them back to the product page to get them to convert into a sale.

3. Facebook Video Ads 

Facebook video ads are quickly becoming one of the most popular types of ads out there. Social media users love to watch videos on their news feeds because they break up all the text that is on there. As long as the video is interesting enough, you are sure to get clicks.

4. Facebook Ad Campaign Length 

One of your main goals should be to find out how long someone stays engaged with your ad before they decide not to click it anymore. If it’s too short, you might need to shorten the video or scale back on all of the copies you’re using. If it’s too long, maybe try adding some subtitles to keep their attention.

5. Facebook Ad Placement 

You can place your ads directly on people’s news feeds or you can send them to another website (such as Sellz. Either way is fine, but I recommend having a website to track the performance of your ads. You can do this by using Facebook pixel, which will allow you to see how many sales you’re getting from every ad campaign you run.

There are many ways you can generate leads, but these are some of the most popular ones. What you should do is research the topic a bit more, test these methods out, find a couple of your own, and see what works best in your case.
