You must join Facebook Groups that are related to "Affiliate Marketing" with your own personal Facebook account, or some active Facebook account.
In the future, we might also join other online business groups which are related such as "Blogging".
You will get access to a spreadsheet with relevant groups to join.
The people that you add MUST be active members, or brand new members to various groups.
Do NOT just add random people as Friends. They must be interested in Affiliate Marketing.
In the future, we can potentially reach out to other "internet marketing" groups (Blogging).
People who you should add as a friend:
- Active members who are asking questions
- New group members
Visit a group and look for beginners who are asking questions.
Many of these groups are so big that the members do not get a lot of attention.
If someone asks a question, then add them as a friend and message them about our group.
Many of these groups have a lot of spam in them, so we need to search for real people who have problems and questions that we can solve and answer. Here are some good examples of people we should reach out to:
This person is clearly just starting out and wants some clarification on joining affiliate programs. Add them as a friend and tell them about our group and how it can help.
This is a "new" member asking a basic question. So this person can benefit from our group and is a good person to add as a friend and message about our group.
This is another "new" member who is asking if affiliate marketing still works. This person would really benefit from our group because we explain exactly what it is and give tutorials on how it is currently working. We should invite this person to our group.
This is another excited beginner asking a basic question. We have content related to her question that we share in our group. We should reach out to her and tell her about our group.
You might not be able to find a lot of good questions being posted. This is when you should contact New Group Members.
Visit a group and go to the "Members" tab.
Scroll down to the section called "New to the group".
Add these people as friends on Facebook.
Review the ideal sequence of messages:
