Setup Facebook for Flipkart Affiliate
To make money from Flipkart affiliate using your Facebook account, you need to create a Facebook group.
But before creating a Facebook group,
First decide which contents or products you want to promote with your group.
I recommend you to choose a set of products that are similar.
So that you can focus your promotion to a tailor-made audience.
To create a Facebook group, Just follow the Facebook help page easy instructions.
And keep in mind, Don’t forget to set the group guidelines.
After creating a group, You must invite your friends and family remembers to join the group.
Instead of it, Also ask them to invite more people on your group to grow your group quickly.
Finally, you can post the contents on your group.
Keep in mind, Don’t post the content from your blog only.
Don’t be so rude buddy.
Make sure you are adding value to the group at all times.
A stagnant group will not attract users or interaction.
Post interactive content in form of questions, polls to get the ball rolling on conversations.
At last, Keep the group active by encouraging Q&A, conversation, posts etc. by the group members.
While combining Facebook with Flipkart affiliate links, You need to make your own working strategy like me.
Strategy may be vary for different – different Facebook groups depending on members.
You can make your own strategy with below points.
The below strategy works great for me.
But, It takes time.
So, you need to be patience.
Also keep in mind, This is not a quick-rich scheme.
- Post 2 articles from your blog daily.
- Post 2 – 2 articles from other blogs which are relevant to your group daily.
- Post 2 Flipkart affiliate links with product information and reasons why people should buy it because only posting affiliate links won’t get any sales.
- Create an event around new product launch/ offers/ sale etc.
- Personalize your group interactions as far as possible.
- Send out birthday greetings to members.
- Use @ feature when replying to post.
- Post about your group on other groups with similar interest.
Don’t post all the above things at the same time or in one time.
Just schedule them for specific times.
You can use the group analytic page to know when your remembers comes online most of the time and you can schedule your post at that time.
Explaining the product, linking it with the member’s needs & demands, and presenting it in a manner that will appeal to your group members is the key to your success.
Maintaining and managing a successful group requires an immense amount of time with resources.
But, If you can really do these things.
Then, earning money from Flipkart affiliate using Facebook would be a child game for you.
Once again, you need to be patient.
Make trustworthy connections with your remembers.
Interact with them regularly.
Be polite and enjoy your work.
