For sure. I would also add you do not want ALL of your videos to be the picture style. It is often best to mix it up. Keeps it fresh you know… Also make sure that pictures that you grab are ones that you actually have right for.
With over 100 million hours of video being watched on Facebook every day, people are consuming video in various mediums across many devices, but most are moving away from snackable, short form content for a longer, more gourmet video experience. Long form videos are now representing 55% of viewing time on smartphones, and Facebook is now allowing advertisers the opportunity to take advantage of the attention of these leaned back, tuned-in video viewers with In-Stream video ad placements. These Facebook video ads are very similar to mid-roll ads on YouTube or Twitch. You may have already noticed these in-stream videos yourself as Facebook has been testing them on content that is 90 seconds or longer for the last few months.
Brilliant write up there, at least beginning bloggers can get to know more about affiliate marketing and how profitable it is. On my blog I talked about way bloggers make money and affiliate marketing was one of them. Thanks for this post once again. Jude
Let’s say you started a Facebook page devoted to all things yoga. You could use the Amazon Associates Program to recommend yoga gear, clothes, or books that people would genuinely like and benefit from using.
My first full time personal training job definitely didn’t start with a bang. I had a Kinesiology degree and 3 years experience working in a University gym. Exercise was my passion. The soviets would have been proud by my periodization methods and I could spit the latest research on muscle physiology for hours.

If an affiliate changes the terms of its program, your revenues could be directly affected. Choosing the wrong affiliates can also be problematic if your blog or website audience doesn’t feel compelled to buy their products or services. With the affiliate-marketing industry experiencing a boom, you’ll also have to contend with competition from other marketers shilling the same affiliate products.
Commission Junction is another great option because it allows you to become an affiliate for countless companies that you already know about (e.g., Overstock, Office Depot, Boscov’s, and many others).
Not much has changed here since we last chatted, but when the issue of using affiliate links in YouTube was brought up most recently, we got in touch with Amazon to see if we could find any answers. Even over chat, this topic evoked mysterious responses. However, the overall sense we got was that it is acceptable to use Amazon affiliate links on YouTube.
Link cloaking Since affiliate links can be rather obvious at times, you need to cloak your links. People will actually delete your link, when this happen, if the people go to the site a purchase something you do not get any commission for that purchase. There are free versions of online software on how to cloak your links
I recommend using ppc ads in the beginning in addition to keyword research as a way to test keywords and sales pages. Just keep things ultra low budget, i,e, $5 per day max until you really know what your doing or you could lose your shirt.
Step two: Add at least 10 videos to your channel to begin with. When people arrive on your channel and you have only 1 video, they will leave and never come back. Your goal is to get them to click on that subscribe button the moment they arrive.
Your business goal that drives your Facebook marketing strategy should be to increase conversions. However, this goal has become difficult to achieve with increasing consumer expectations and rising competition for News Feed real estate.
As search engines have become more prominent, some affiliate marketers have shifted from sending e-mail spam to creating automatically generated web pages that often contain product data feeds provided by merchants. The goal of such web pages is to manipulate the relevancy or prominence of resources indexed by a search engine, also known as spamdexing. Each page can be targeted to a different niche market through the use of specific keywords, with the result being a skewed form of search engine optimization.
Tricks included creating educational and inspirational videos, integrating really specific calls-to-action (CTAs), using optimized CPM (oCPM) to pay for video ads, choosing the right target audience via the ‘behavior heading’ and ‘custom audience’ features, and of course… a reminder to always test!
The final component that completes the affiliate relationship triangle is the consumer. The consumer is the one who actually sees the ad and then makes an action (either by clicking a link or by submitting their information via a form) that takes them from the website to the advertiser’s to complete the action, which we call a conversion.
Alot of ppl are still in the dark about this line of work. They still rely on their day jobs and unwilling to take a risk. Donald Trump took a risk by running for president. Why can’t other people who are unsure about Entrepreneurship lead by example and take a risk online in getting started in affiliate marketing and work from home? Truth is, most people are afraid of getting out of their emotional comfort zone and don’t want to explore the unknown. There’s a bundle of money to be made in this industry by faithful people who do the transformation business work and get started out of inspiration.

I’ve been using Amazon’s affiliate program for a little over two years and during that time I’ve had a lot of success with it. In fact, this income source was the second largest chunk of my total $150k+ 2010 income. If I hadn’t sold one of my larger Amazon focused sites last year for six figures this income source would have easily eclipsed $100,000 by now.
This is enough to send the video 1,800 people each month. That will result in five to ten sales of the $249 scanner every month. Since putting it on YouTube, the video has made me an average of $150 a month in affiliate commissions from Amazon.com (plus $10 to $15 from YouTube video ads). Not bad for something I created 18 months ago.
The true power of video advertising on Facebook is the targeting capabilities. Forget spray and pray — you need a hyper-targeted group of people for your ad’s audience. Narrowing your target group will give you less overall views, but because you’re reaching only the people who are relevant, your CTR is likely to be higher.
However, more recent examples exist of “thin” affiliate sites that are using the affiliate marketing model to create value for Consumers by offering them a service. These thin content service Affiliates fall into three categories:

Write a pay-per-click ad. Pay-per-click (PPC) advertisements are the bread and butter of affiliate marketing, but how well you craft your ad could be the difference between success and failure. A strong PPC ad should:

That is a really good question, John. Incorporating text into your video is one way around this. The other is to make sure the basic context of your video can be understood with or without sound. Start off with something visually enticing to get people to open the video, or write your post text in a way that gets people to click and watch.

On the other hand, machines can take you only so far. They can’t produce your content or govern your strategic decision making. The Facebook Marketing Partners program (formerly Preferred Marketing Developers) is about attracting vertical experts that bring domain expertise and relationships well beyond the core platform principles that Facebook provides.
All in all, it takes just a basic strategy to get started with affiliate marketing on YouTube. The goal is to get those first 10 videos done, and up. Then you can start pushing to get views and sales. Make sure that your videos inspire those sales or you won’t get them!

Theme – you don’t need a special theme for affiliate marketing, you probably just need a blog. I recommend StudioPress themes since that’s what Yoast, Matt Cutts (from Google), and I use. Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress also recommends them. One of the biggest mistakes I made was using a theme from Themeforest… since they’re built by independent developers who may stop making updates to their theme. This happened to me and I hear horror stories all the time about people having to switch themes and redesign their entire site. I’ve been using the same StudioPress theme (Outreach Pro) for 3 years. Their themes are lightweight (load fast), SEO-friendly via optimized code, secure, and they have a huge selection of plugins for the Genesis Framework and an awesome community in the Genesis WordPress Facebook Group. They include documentation for setting it up and will serve you for many, many years.
