Hello everyone.

This is my fist post on FLF and I hope than I can help you to start your entrepreneurial activity. I've been doing affiliate marketing for over a year. I started by launching campaigns on facebook with only 5€ per day until today I spend more than 4-5K/day. Affiliate marketing is not an entrepreneurial activity, I'm aware of that but I think it's a good way for people with little money to generate a cashflow to dedicate to their fastline projects.

For those of you unfamiliar with Affiliate Marketing, let me briefly explain. It's about selling third party products using a source of traffic.
So the actors are: the advertiser (the one who has to sell the product), the affiliate network (the intermediary who puts the advertiser in contact with the sellers) and the affiliate (the sellers, i.e. us).

I have experience of selling with facebook as a traffic source and I make myself available for any questions for those who would like to start generating cash flow to dedicate it to fastline activities.

What would you like to know about this speculation?

Let me know.

Giuseppe

How do you judge what kind of affiliate offers are worth trying to sell? Or do you just test a lot?

Do you just send traffic to the affiliate's site, or do you create your own funnel?

What kind of commission % do you usually make?

Why don't you buy the products in bulk or buy the rights to them if digital, or even make your own products for higher margins?

Hi, I'll try to answer you point by point.

To choose a supply, I first analyze the demand in that particular vertical. If I see that the affiliate product can respond to it I try to test it.

Depends on the affiliate network you work with. There are some networks that allow you to work with API (today I only work with them) and in this way I can work with my own sales funnel. Other affiliate networks only allow you to work with their landing pages and so you can only send traffic to them by entering your pixel to track the user's actions.

To date, working with higher budgets, the average percentage I can generate is 20 to 50% ROI.

That's the way I'm going to go next. When you are just starting out, you prefer to specialize only in sales, not having to manage the customer afterwards. You still have good margins and can start with low budgets. If I had more budget in the beginning I would have focused on selling first and then specialise in the rest of the flow.

Can you describe the kind of affiliate funnel you run on Fb ads? I mean the structure. Do you do a pre-sell page? Or do you capture emails?

What kind of payout do you need for this to be profitable, and what kind of ROI do you get (that is, when you spend 5k in a day, how much does that bring in on average)?

What kind of payout do you need for this to be profitable, and what kind of ROI do you get (that is, when you spend 5k in a day, how much does that bring in on average)?

It depends on what kind of offer I'm going to sponsor. Whether we're talking about Lead Generation or selling physical products (I don't sell infoproducts).

In the case of Lead Generation I just need to have the email. These kind of offers pay little but on large numbers you get money (considering that something will always be rejected).

In the case of sales of physical products I have different strategies that depend on the type of vertical (pet, nutra, cosmetics, gadgets, etc.).

Sometimes I talk about a specific problem in an advertorial (es. nutra) that sends the user back to the sales page of the product that goes to solve that specific problem.

Other times, for example if we have to sell a watch (gadget), I directly sponsor the sales page.

The strategy must be built according to the type of product and the type of angle you want to use.

The payout depends on the type of product you're selling. If I have to sell a $59 product the minimum payout I expect is $18 or more.
If I have to sell a $300+ product the minimum payout I expect is $60. On average at least 1/3 of the selling price.

The ROI for example on 5K of spending can vary from 20% to 60%, depending on the skill you have in the sale (perceived value) and especially the quality of the product. If the product is really working you have high percentages of ROI.

If you have more specific questions, go ahead! :)

Thanks for the thread!

How do you spend that kind of budgets these days on Facebook? Do you do Whitehat?
What do you mean "How do you spend that kind of budgets these days"? I didn't understand the question. I work both Whitehat and Blackhat.

I've got another question related to affiliate marketing in general.

I want to start a new project where I connect two different parties selling info products in the same niche and take some profit from both sides.

Only one of them will be doing the selling, through his own sales channels, and I want to make a deal with him to include the other guy's product as a part of his offer. So essentially I'll earn a commission for increasing the sales for both of them, but for every sale the first guy makes.
I hope my description is clear enough.

My question is, do you have any suggestions how to set up a payment structure like this?

So if I understand you correctly, you want to know how to technically do what you say?

Yes exactly. And whether this can be arranged with an affiliate like deal.

I have too little information to answer that. It all depends on the selling price of the first product (and the margin you have on it) to calculate how much to sell the second product and establish the margin. Technically also, it depends on what payment gatway you use. If you can, write a few more details and I'll see what I can recommend!

The 2 guys that created Wealthy Affiliate make a mint because the entire structure is set up for people to create review sites then pitch Wealthy Affiliate.

Affiliates Thousandnaires at best.
Creators Millionaires/Fastlane.

Have you ever thought to become the creator and have the affiliate army selling for YOU while you sleep?

Hey there....of course not. But I do not knock it for those that do.

For many maybe its their first cash online.

But only 10 people are going to make it to the first page of a review site and I can not even remember last time I ever clicked to 2nd page.

That does force you to be a bit more creative and that is always good.

Was just making a real world example.

I would pick a lucrative niche....one that is tailored to this social distancing era we are living in now.

Focus primarily on building a list in that niche with a helpful opt in freebie.

You can promote away after that with much better odds in my opinion.

What do you mean "How do you spend that kind of budgets these days"? I didn't understand the question. I work both Whitehat and Blackhat.
Do you spend it on a few FB ad accounts or on many?
Do you have a team or work alone?
How much do you do Whitehat and Blackaht in % of campaigns?

Hi Giuseppe, I hope you and yours are keeping well.

I have a few questions for you. What countries do you usually target and how has the pandemic affected Facebook cost per click, if at all?

Also how accurate in your experience would you say the Wordstream CPC and Click Through rates are in the verticals you market in?
