Jed Wylie – Make Your Website Sell: Should you sell on Facebook? Comment WordPress (5) Facebook () Google+ 5 Responses Jannet Sabala The affiliate marketing or associate program, has become an increasingly popular way to earn extra cash on the web by promoting individual web sites. These programs can seem quite intimidating initially, however, educating yourself about affiliate marketing basics can ease the confusion of a seemingly complex situation.

However, I find paying per click ridiculously expensive for what I get in return (I paid £20 for what was in essence 26 clicks/ likes with no sales afterwards over a 4 day period). I tried sending friend requests to ‘promising’ clients who are clearly obsessed (as I am) with Manchester city, but ended up being thrown out for 7 days by facebook. Any suggestions how else I can build an audience quickly and cost effectively with my new business venture?

Perhaps the author is basing the comments around his or her own field of business? So I agree with the comments if you are selling B2B,but there re great opportunities B2C. I know a garden maintenance business and a hair stylist, both generate work via facebook.

For B2B clients try Linkedin. You can quickly build a professional network and join target groups. I am also MD of a metal processing business. Joining vsrious steel stockholder groups within Linkedin allows me to promote what we do. SEO is fine and has its place but is very much reactive, waiting for your customer to find you. Exposure through sites like facebook and Linkedin is proactive!

Now having a facebook page that is free is all well and good. VA:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 3.0/5 (2 votes cast) April 25, 2013 at 11:32 am Click here to cancel reply.
