What is affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays a commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.

This type of online business isn’t hard, but it does require knowledge, planning, and consistent effort to make any significant income.

Choose only quality products and services. In fact, consider buying them yourself so you can attest to their quality. You’ll be judged by the product/services you promote, so don’t just focus on the income, but also on the quality.

Affiliate marketing has increased in prominence with the Internet age. Amazon popularized the practice by creating an affiliate marketing program where websites and bloggers put links to the Amazon page for a product being reviewed or discussed in order to receive advertising fees when a purchase is made.

creating your first facebook ad

A Step-By-Step Guide To Creating Your First Facebook Ad

A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Your First Facebook Ad

Odds are you already have a personal Facebook account and you may already have one for your business as well. If not, before launching a Facebook ad campaign and creating your first Facebook ad you are going to want to create a free Facebook Fan Page for your affiliate marketing business. This is a page you can use to grow your business, build your brand and develop relationships with your customers.

When you log onto your Facebook account, look for the “Create a Page” option on the bottom left corner. Clicking on this button will begin the process of creating your business’ Fan Page.
Facebook makes creating a Fan Page easy by simply following the instructions, beginning with selecting a category and a page name that best represents your business. In most cases, the Fan Page will be named after your business.

Next, pick a logo or another image that people will associate with your business to use as your profile picture and write a sentence or two about your business so people will understand what you are all about. Set a memorable web address for your Page that you can use on marketing material to promote your Facebook Fan Page.

Finally, select a cover photo that represents your brand and showcases your product or service. This image is going to be the first thing people see when they visit your Page, so choose something extraordinary.

Now that you have a Fan Page, you can post updates, photos, videos and other content that will appear in the feed of everybody who “Likes” your page. Expand your fan base by inviting your friends, family, customers, and employees to “Like” your page; click the “Invite E-Mail Contacts” option to upload your subscriber list; and promote your Page on store signs, business cards, receipts, emails, chalkboards and other marketing material.

Now that you have a Fan Page, you can create your first Facebook Ad to promote your business. Your Fan Page is what you want to promote when creating your first Facebook Ad because it is a helpful place to direct visitors and attract new customers. Customers who “Like” your Fan Page spend about twice as much as people who aren’t connected to you on Facebook.

On the bottom of your Fan Page, click on the button that says, “Create an Ad”. This will take you to a page where you can create a Facebook Ad account by entering basic information such as your name, email address and any web addresses you own.

The next step is to click on the “Create an Ad” Button in the upper right-hand corner of the page and it will prompt you for the address of the page you want to promote. Now, this can be your Fan Page, a website address, a sales page or wherever it is you want your customers to land once they click on your ad. Simply enter the URL into the box and you will be taken to a page where you can assemble your ad.

Next, you want to fill in the boxes to create the content for your ad. You also can upload an image that will appear on your ad. With a lot of affiliate products, this type of information will be provided to you by the affiliate seller. If you are writing your own ad copy, make sure you clearly explain what you are promoting, including details of your products, services or offers. The image you use should be eye-catching yet uncomplicated so that viewers can immediately grasp its purpose when viewed in a small thumbnail size (100 x 72 pixels).

Next, scroll down on the same page and choose your audience. Here is where you enter details about on whose pages you want your ad to appear, including location, age, gender, precise interests, broad categories, connections and if you want it to show up on friends of your connections as well.

Finally, scroll down to the bottom of the page and fill out the campaign, pricing, and schedule you want for your Facebook ad. Information includes the type of currency you want to use, your home country, the time zone you are in, the name of your campaign, your daily budget, your campaign’s schedule, and whether you want to run a CPC or CPM campaign.

online business success

Online Business Success, The Five “Essential Elements”.

Online Business Success, The Five “Essential Elements”.


A constant flow of prospects that are interested in what you have to offer.

Without traffic, you can’t have sales.
With no sales, you can’t have profit.

Eyeballs in front of your offer.
Location, location, location.
The “right” eyeballs, on the right product.

(learn how to get this traffic here)


A funnel is a systemized process that allows you to capture and turn your traffic into leads and buyers.
One of “the most important parts” of this entire process.

If you do not have a funnel in place now, no worries, we can teach you how to do this easily, you do not need to know coding, or have massive tech skills.
If you can follow a video, stop, pause, rewind, rewatch, you can do this!

(learn how to easily build funnels here)


Filters allow you to show your prospects custom products and services that are specific to their needs.
A way to screen your leads so that you are only working with the right prospects.
Filters out those that are most interested in certain products you offer, also allow’s you to offer even more targeted products to those same people.

(learn how to set up filters for your business here)

Properly thought out follow-up processes allows you to stay in touch with your leads and buyers, get feedback and comments so you can offer them better solutions.

Emails or automatically generated emails to your customers and prospects.
Phone calls, or a team of phone specialists working on your behalf following up with your leads and prospects.
Direct mail.

Good follow-up is key.
The company you promote with your advertising dollars should have a solid follow-up system already in place which includes all of the above.
You follow-up with your prospect until they “buy, or die”, metaphorically speaking…
To be a successful affiliate marketer, you need a company that has these systems established and in place, ready for you to “plug-in to”.

(learn about a company that has ALL of this follow-up ready and waiting for you and your leads)

5) Tiered Product Mix

Different products at different price points.
A selection of products, services, and solutions at various price points that address your buyers needs.

For every 100 leads you produce with your marketing effort, there will be whales and minnows.
In order to feed the whales, you need large ticket items.
The minnows feed on the smaller ticket items.
Feed them both.

You need to offer value with all your products, large as well as small.
Premium high priced ticket items are a necessity for your online business success.

yoonla vs four percent group vs mobe

Subject: YOONLA vs Four Percent Group vs MOBE Which is better?

YOONLA vs Four Percent Group vs MOBE Which is better?


Bros and Broesses!!!

That is THE Question this blog post focuses on.

How’s it going? Greeeeeeeat……

How’s your day????? Greeeeeeeat……

What are you doing????? Greeeeeeeat……

What are you promoting????? Greeeeeeeat……

ARE YOU MAKING PROFITS??????? ………………………………..?

Check this out,

Are you promoting YOONLA with Reno Van Boven,
Four Percent Group with Vick Strizheus,
or MOBE with Matt Lloyd?

My experience with all three.

My take on YOONLA,

Reno is a great guy, I admire him,
at first, I was all in on YOONLA.

Loved the idea, the vision, the passion.

Not digging so much the small ticket items…. enough said.
Well, maybe not, because you see, small ticket items can only
produce one thing, small ticket commissions…….

If I’m promoting something, I want to promote big ticket items,
so I can earn big ticket commissions.

Start small, build up.

Plus Reno here’s a tip.

You should NOT be answering support tickets, you’re way better
served to hire that out and focus on growing the business
and acquiring new leads and also up selling to your current list of buyers.

ie; my leads I send you, with my hard earned advertising dollars……

You can check YOONLA out here:YOONLA:

FOUR PERCENT GROUP, again Vick Strizheus is a nice guy, I admire
him, appreciate his enthusiasm, the drive, the ambition, and the vision.
But, he’s flying in all different directions here!

I’ve learned some good
internet skills from him, and will continue to be a Four Percent Pro member.

Plus, I’m not a fan of the “last touch” affiliate agreement. If I send the person
to your company first, and they buy, I want commissions for life on that person.
NO questions asked…..No term limits on that.

You can check out Four Percent Group here:4% Group:

The clear winner when comparing these three
“direct response attraction marketing business systems”…..

is MOBE with Matt Lloyd.

Reno and Vick are modeling their systems off of Matt’s.

The difference, MOBE is already an established business,
most of the serious growing pains have been ironed out.

Matt has a large team of professional business people helping him run
the day to day operations of a 100+ million dollar direct response
marketing company.

Reno and Vick dream of this…..

Put your hard-earned dollars towards promoting a proven winning system.
MOBE is already in place and just waiting for you to “turn the key”.

Speaking of turning the key, check out this MOBE Motors program they have in place!

MOBE Motors, what’s your dream car?
Find out more HERE:

Simply put, YOONLA and Four Percent Groups are still start-up businesses,
and what do more than 70% of start up businesses do?

Exactly, they fail!

QUESTION: If you are starting your own home based business, would you
rather hitch your wagon to a proven winner, or to a newbie that is still “trying”
to figure it out for themselves? Reno & Vick are flying by the seat of their pants.

Matt Lloyd’s MOBE is a proven, high paying, high-quality affiliate marketing
business education program.

You can check out MOBE here:

In my 14 years of marketing online, this is hands down “THE BEST”
company to get involved with.

Do yourself a solid here and check out MOBE.

It’s not only a game changer MOBE is a life changer.

I HIGHLY recommend you check out MOBE and some of their home
based affiliate success stories here:
