Drive traffic to your store

Firstly, let’s talk about how to use Facebook for the benefit of your business, whether this is a dropshipping store or other ecommerce venture.

If you have a store, you may create a page or group on Facebook using your browser or Facebook app and promote your products there. In fact, you may significantly increase your profit margin. Sounds tempting? Let’s consider this in detail.

Page vs group

If you have ever dealt with Facebook, you may know that when registering, you are able to create a page or group. How do they differ from each other?

A group is a kind of a forum that is designed for a team collaboration. The group administrators only need to supervise the discussions, while the followers fill the group with valuable content. 

Moreover, when you manage to collect a particular number of subscribers, you won’t have to promote your Facebook group anymore. The point is that Facebook will do this itself buy recommending Facebook fans from similar groups to join your community. And the higher the activity rate in your group is, the more actively Facebook promotes it.

That’s why in terms of monetizing, Facebook group is a bit more attractive than a page.

First of all, make sure that you have an account on Facebook. If no, you need to create it. Then, find a company that sells products or services you’re interested in and has an affiliate program. Express your wish to become an affiliate. In our case, the company is AliDropship.

After that, you can start promoting AliDropship IT products on Facebook. You need to write posts about our Plugin, Custom stores, and other solutions for ecommerce and dropshipping to drive traffic to AliDropship landing pages.

You may ask: how can you do this if you don’t know how these products really work?

Well, since AliDropship supports only fair reviews, we are able to provide you with some of our IT products, such as our Plugin or Social Rabbit for 1-2 weeks.

In practice, this is enough for you to check its performance and find its pros and cons.

Then, you start promoting our products and services on Facebook. Tell your followers how they work, which questions you had, how fast our Support service helped you, etc.

In fact, this kind of review has an additional value because it’s based on real experience of using the products. That’s why, in that case you are highly likely to succeed in affiliate marketing.

Did you know that you can receive up to $284 commission for the AliDropship tools purchase made through your affiliate link?

But share only valuable insights and your real experience, since there is no place for spamming! Otherwise Facebook can block your account, and you can be excluded from the Affiliate program.

By the way, if you have some money to spend on ads – use it to promote your AliDropship affiliate link. This is definitely worth it!

Promote somebody’s business

Have you ever seen an ad in a popular blogger account? We suppose, you have. This is what we mean by somebody’s business promotion. So what do you need to make money on this?

In fact, there is nothing hard about that. You’re supposed to have an account on Facebook with as many followers as possible. When you collect several thousand subscribers, this is high time to start promoting somebody’s business and make money on this!

However, you should remember that you should have a suitable custom audience for promotion. For example, if you are a sportsman, you can tell your followers about sportsman daily life.

When your account becomes popular enough for sports goods promotion, you make a deal with a sports store owner and start advertising their products. How should you do this? 

In most cases, you’re provided with the products from the store you work with, and you are supposed to just describe the stuff you use when going in for sports.

Don’t forget that the more followers you have, the more expensive your advertisement is. In practice, the most popular bloggers can receive dozens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars for the posts in their accounts. 

Sell promoted pages

In our article on how to monetize Instagram we have already talked about selling promoted pages as a way to make profit. Since nowadays selling boosted accounts is an increasingly popular way of making money online, this has affected Facebook also. Just look at what Accsmarket can tell us about that.

So, how does it work?

All you need is to create a page or a group and make interesting posts there. Actually, you may choose almost any topic you want. It can be health, business, marketing, food, etc.

Then, you need to revive it. What does it mean? You need to attract new followers, make them write comments, share their opinions, and so on.

So, remember that the audience should be engaged in the topic you have chosen. And the more followers you have, the more your page or group will cost.

That’s it, indeed. Once you have sold one account, start boosting the another one!
