Over the past year and a half or so one of my main interests has been building Facebook fan pages. It all started with a WSO I bought and promoted called Fanpage Commissions. Since then, I have started quite a few very successful fan pages and made well over $10,000 from them. During that time I have learned quite a bit about both what works and what does not work when building and advertising a fan page. For instance, which type of bidding you should use when advertising your fan page or fan page content: Optimized bidding or “Advanced” (manual) bidding?
When you create an ad specifically for a fan page on Facebook you are given a few different options on what you would like to promote with that ad. You can get more page likes, promote page posts, or use advanced options to create your campaign.
Get More Page Likes
The Get More Page Likes option simply allows you to create a Facebook ad specifically for your fan page. This add will include the Like button below it to encourage people who view the ad to Like your page.
Promote Page Posts
The Promote Page Posts option is → Continue Reading
My name is Christian Little and Luke asked if I would mind putting together this posting for you on how I have been promoting PeerFly offers with 7Search. I am going to show you some stats, some results that I have gotten, and hopefully this will help a few aspiring newbies out there. What I am going to show you will not make you rich, but it will get you going in the right direction.
I think I should preface this by saying I am not a super affiliate or anywhere close to it. I do affiliate marketing casually on the side. I have a full time job and a family that take priority over it. So, what I do is a little different than what other people might tell you to do.
There are two elements I consider to be vital if you are going to be even remotely successful when promoting anything online: Tracking and Testing.
For tracking, I strongly suggest you install Prosper202 somewhere and get very familiar with it. It is a free tracking platform that was built for affiliate marketers and it works extremely well in helping you track the results of everything you do. → Continue Reading
In April of last year I reviewed a service called SocialAdNinja. Since posting that review I have gotten a lot of questions about SocialAdNinja (the review was read over 17,000 times!) and how it differs from it’s competitors. It’s no secret, there are plenty of tools out there to help you maximize your affiliate marketing potential, but as anyone who has visited WarriorForum or any affiliate marketing forum has found, not all of them are worth your money. Well, over the past nine months a lot has changed with SocialAdNinja and I thought it would be interesting to do a comparison between them and one of their biggest competitors, Lots of Ads.
Although Lots of Ads has been around awhile longer than SocialAdNinja, SocialAdNinja is quickly becoming a favorite among affiliate marketers advertising on Facebook so I thought it would be interesting to find out why.
What they both have…
Two things that neither SocialAdNinja (SAN) or Lots of Ads (LOA) are lacking in are features or data. Combined the two services have around 1,300,000 ads (400,000 on SAN and 900,000 on LOA) that are searchable by:

Split testing your affiliate campaigns is always important. It is amazing the different things you can split test and the different results you will see with minor tweaks. With Plenty of Fish one of the primary things I like to split test (once I have a banner with a decent clickthrough rate) is the login count. The amount of times someone has logged into their POF account says a lot about the type of user they are. Earlier this month I started a POF campaign testing different login counts promoting the lesbian dating site PinkWink. The results are pretty interesting and I thought I would share them!
In the example below you will see the banner I used, the traffic I received from Plenty of Fish based on the targeting for each campaign, and my results from Prosper202.
Unique POF Banner
Having a unique banner is really important with Plenty of Fish if you are going to get a high enough CTR (clickthrough rate) to be profitable. Most banners have the text on the right and the image on the left. I decided to make my 310×110 banner with one big image across the top and a small strip of → Continue Reading
