Default Newbie Question

I am new to affliate marketing. I bought a product I enjoy and they offered to make me an affliate. They suggested advertising their link on facebook. My question is- is this okay with a regular facebook (personal) account? I don't want facebook booting me off an account.

Also is it okay to put this affliate link into Twitter or Pinterest?

You actually can use affiliate links on Facebook. However, it is an FTC requirement that you disclose you are an affiliate. So you would need to share that.
You can also use aff. links in Twitter.
Last time I checked you could not use them in Pinterest though you could direct someone to a blog where you have an affiliate link.

The main thing here is to make sure that you are not spamming your friends and family.

Also keep in mind that most people are on Facebook to socialize not buy product. So it is likely going to be a tough sale. You may be better off starting a website in a related niche and sharing the product.

Yes, it's ok - but for a lot of niches it's a total waste of time, you would be better off buying targeted buyer traffic,

Yes it's ok but may be a waste of time. I tried posting my blog post on FB and paid $5 to advertise my post which was a complete waste.

Well that's easy, it's high quality targeted and exclusive and you ask me.

And it's not about luck. If your results were low (assuming you had a decent sales funnel to followup with them) your traffic, and that includes facebook traffic (which is pretty lousy for make money offers), is poor quality.

Would you be purchasing ads on facebook or are they talking about advertising your links in facebook groups or fan pages? If it is the latter I would say that is not a good idea because most people don't pay it any attention.

Sorry, who are you direction the your question at?

If it's about the exclusive targeted leads we're using to get 50% conversions, the answer is a resounding no.

Indeed, you are able to post your affiliate link on your Facebook timeline.

Here is a helpful tip on how to get people clicking on your affiliate website by using Facebook.

When you begin to post your affiliate link on your Facebook page, make sure to come up with an outstanding title or message. And if you took the time to really brainstorm a compelling message to introduce your affiliate link, and not rushing through it to quickly, most likely, you are going to have a whole bunch of people clicking on your affiliate site nonstop, and hopefully you might generate some sales from it as well.

I hope that helps.
