I still remember laying on a mattress on the floor of our living room at my moms when I was growing up and watching WCW and WWF wrestling with my brothers. Like most boys during the 90s, I was a wrestling fanatic. My brothers and I were more WCW fans, but we watched WWF and were huge fans of all the great wrestlers at the time including Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Sting, Andre the Giant, Goldberg, and of course, The Undertaker, just to name a few.
Well, one wrestler that I never really did like was The Rock. Everyone loved The Rock, but there was something about him that I just never liked and no matter who he was wrestling, I was always rooting against him.
As I grew up I continued to disregard The Rock every chance that I got. His movies sucked and he was a tool. Well, about a year ago, out of nowhere one of The Rock’s posts from his Facebook Page showed up on my News Feed and my opinion of him has been changed ever since.
The Rock is an Inspiration

I have been working in the affiliate marketing space for about 10 years now, but I have primarily worked on the affiliate management and affiliate marketing side. I am either helping affiliates (publishers) find good affiliate offers to promote at PeerFly or I am looking for affiliates offers on PeerFly to promote myself. Well, as of yesterday, for the first time I have an affiliate offer of my own.
I have been talking about Facebook Pages and Facebook marketing in general A LOT lately (sorry to those not interested). I have discussed how I advertise on Facebook, gave an hour long presentation at Affiliate Summit on Facebook Pages, and even launched my own tool to show people how I have built my large Facebook audience. I am reaching well over a million people a day and it’s opened up a lot of monetization opportunities for me.
Over the past few months, as FPTraffic has continued to grow, I have had a lot of members reach out to me about setting up a referral program. So, I created a little referral script so I could track promotions for the few people that asked, but it just wasn’t up to par with → Continue Reading
Over the past year I have completely changed how I advertise on Facebook. Facebook has evolved and there are much more effective ways to advertise than the old right side only placement days. However, there is still ample opportunity to take advantage of the right side reality on Facebook.
So, here is a breakdown of how I have been using my Facebook Pages and News Feed ads to my advantage as well as the low CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions) on right side ads to build Likes on my Facebook Pages.
First, let’s take a look at News Feed ads.
News Feed Facebook Ads
Facebook opened up advertising in New Feeds a little while ago and although it is more expensive than tradition right side ads, it definitely has it’s advantages.
News Feed ads have prominent placement because unlike right side ads, they are very hard to ignore. As you go through your News Feed looking at what your friends are saying on their Facebook you run into an ad like the post shown above.
These ads are posts that are being promoted by a Facebook Page. A Facebook Page owner can promote a post that they’ve publicly shared → Continue Reading
Wow, I cannot believe that we are already over a week into February and I have not published a new blog post for over a month! It is amazing how quickly time passes, especially when you are busy.
A lot has happened since Christmas, but there was one particular event that took place I am excited to write about. On Sunday, January 12th, I gave my first presentation at Affiliate Summit West!
The team at PeerFly has been telling me I need to give a presentation and speak at Affiliate Summit for about a year now so when they started accepting speaking proposals I submitted one to give a presentation titled, Generating Massive Traffic and Profit Using Facebook Pages.
Over the past few years I have been focusing a lot of my time and energy into building several large Facebook Pages. I have learned a lot from all the time and money I have invested into my Pages so I thought it would be fun to give a presentation around some of that information and data.
My speaking proposal was approved and I created a 45 slide presentation for my hour long presentation.
I was pretty nervous going into my → Continue Reading
