Facebook bought Whatsapp for 19 billion dollars and more than 20 million people are paying $1 dollar per year.Others are using free. The BIG question is why Whatsapp revenue is very low & Facebook revenue is high? Why WhatApp can’t made profit? to know answer read about online business below.
Facebook video ads fit into the newsfeeds seamlessly because they are seen as a story or post. Unlike pop-up ads and banner ads always being filtered out by ad blocking software, Facebook video ads reach every viewer. Even though they are marked as “sponsored” or “suggested post”, users will look at ads as they scroll down to look at every item on their news feed.
Excellent article Chris! This will help me out a lot. I am a new author through amazon and my book is also being sold through KDP Select (The kindle option worldwide) but regardless of my advertising on my Facebook page, which cost money, I do not seem to be getting anywhere. With Amazon Associates, is it totally free and no cost to you or do you pay a fee over a certain amount of time. Also if you have any tips on how to a book out there that would be excellent. My book is being sold at Books a Million, Barnes and Noble, and Alibris. I plan on doing a book signing at Barnes and Noble in hopes it will raise awareness of my book.
For the commission of different types of products refer the below the image. As per I am concerned this is the best and most efficient way to make money with WhatsApp. Most of all internet entrepreneurs are entirely dependent on affiliate marketing.
So true. There is no right and wrong, and everyone is going to do it slightly different. It comes down to trying a bunch of stuff, doing it with authenticity, and then seeing what your audience thinks from there!
I also think this is why tutorial posts are so valuable. 1) Your teaching someone a skill, and even if they choose not to use the product you suggest, it can still be very valuable information. 2) If it’s a product you personally use, then it’s easy to see why you’d recommend it – you’re a customer too!

I was able to make my first online dollars through Amazon Affiliate sales… It was never much and in the beginning I was just excited to make $10 in a month, which was enough for a free ebook or two. With regular updates and link inclusions in my posts over time I was able to grow the number up to like $300 a month–which I was pretty happy with. Of course the payout rates are paltry compared to a sale of an info product like one from Unconventional Guides, etc. Thing is, people seem to be more open to purchasing physical products rather than information products…
From the conservative 1000 clicks/month let’s ramp up to a steady 3000 clicks/month. And from the conservative $25-$30 affiliate commission, let’s go up to the very nice round number of $100 per sale.
The viewer sees a muted version of the video unless he clicks on it. Thus, you need to focus its visual effect. Find a beautiful actor, design colorful graphics, start with an intriguing quote written over an attractive background, or think of another way to grasp the viewer’s attention.
That doesn’t mean you don’t need a site like mine and the products I provide (that’s crazy talk). The training Facebook is rolling out remains slanted towards beginners. Honestly, I appreciate this since this is not my target audience, and quality beginner education has long been a need.
This is necessary because of the competitive nature of affiliate marketing and to be able to make money online. Daily, new techniques and methods are developed; you wouldn’t want to be left behind while new trends take over.
Organic reach is as little as 1% yet some experts are seeing extraordinarily high reach figures. Learn some of the secrets to combatting the Edgerank algorithm with a set of tips and tricks for optimum reach and engagement.
MY biggest struggle is knowing how to put the promotion together and having everything in place when you promote it. I would kill for a Step-by-Step hold your hand and let me show you once how to do it correctly Mapped Blueprint. I have seen lots of sales pages but when you get them from the vendor they look a lot of the times nothing like the Org sales page, have never written a sales page before and it becomes overwhelming and confusing and then totally frustrating
Lastly, Facebook counts impression when the video ads are watched for at least 3 seconds. No matter viewers like it or not, or viewers watch it actively or passively, it is counts as a view. As a result, the measurement of campaign effectiveness is not accurate enough.
Thanks for the kind words and additional insight here, Anton. We definitely focused more on organic video content rather than paid ads for this post, but you’re absolutely correct in asserting that video advertising is important (and growing) on Facebook.
In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.
That way, if you decide to write a review to promote it or send the affiliate link for the product’s sales page to your email list, etc., you will have first-hand knowledge of how it works. This will help you to decide it the product has real value pertaining to your niche. I, personally, won’t sell anything I haven’t tried myself to be sure they work as advertised. Selling just to make money with no real value is a sure way to lose customers and ultimately destroy your business. Bad reputations are hard to get rid of once you get one, especially when there’s money involved. With that being said, I hope you all have a great holiday season.
While Whatsapp has kept the service free, it may expand it to larger businesses with added features such as analytics, from which it may well charge a usage fee at a later stage, thus creating a revenue model, segment watchers said. This also is aimed at increasing subscriber connect which it can leverage for future monetization of its other services. The larger agenda – and a more critical one – for these companies is to get active users to spend more time on the app or services and make it viable for revenue generation, according to analysts.
Nowadays the app appears to be focused primarily on growth, while making money from selling the software and services, according to a blog post by the messaging service. The app now has more than one billion users worldwide according to figures released last year.
How do you deal with the fact that seen in a timeline there is no sound. Only if you actually open it do you get sound. Does that mean we should use text in combination with spoken words? I see this more and more often.

When working online a lot of distractions come in the form of flashy banners like easy way to earn money online or something which attracts you and get you distracted from your program which you are already working on. This is how you lose your concentration in search of something better.
I’ve gotta admit that I’m impressed with these offerings. Facebook struggles to educate, but this is a really nice course format. If you’re looking for a free resource for beginner Facebook marketing training, Blueprint is a great place to start.
Yah, it’s something he added in to the v2.0 one he released a few months ago. It’s a pretty sweet plugin and I’ve been recommending it to everyone for a while now. If you already have a plugin though I’d suggest just using that one though, no sense in buying a ton of them.
Ultimately, it’s all about understanding what your audience really wants. Say you’re an organic nutrition and wellness coach. For you, a natural weight-loss product you’ve used successfully could be a great fit. But be careful – a more commercial product in that same sector could be a huge turnoff for your particular audience.
At this point, you should have a basic understanding of what affiliate marketing is and how it works. If you have any questions regarding any of this, you can always ask me in the comments section below.
Choose affiliate items that match your niche or the content on your home business website or blog. For example, if you write about figure skating, affiliate links to motorcycles or a new set of saddlebags won’t do well.

I’ve just got to hear about affiliate marketing and am really a newbie to this matter. The post above was so great and helpful for a person like me. I also took a look at locationrebel which seemed very exciting to me. I wonder if those courses and blueprints are still applicable because as far as I’ve seen, the reviews and testimonials all refer to the year 2013. It was the only reason that hold me back from joining the Locationrebel. I would be very thankful if you help me with this matter.
Understanding and mastering how to make money affiliate marketing will be very lucrative to you with the right training. Build your site right, and you can be on top of a huge pile of commissions relatively quickly.
If you can’t find a way to make a product fit into your content strategy naturally – and you feel deeply that you want to promote it – consider trying a different platform, like Pinterest or email marketing specifically devoted to people in that target market.
Finally, be upfront with your readers. Add a disclosure to your blog posts or somewhere on your website letting them know that they may come across affiliate links. This adds to your credibility, and it’s also required by the Federal Trade Commission’s endorsement guidelines.
Great tips, some of them I am already following. It’s little hard to start initially and have some budget in mind for paid advertisement. What do you think how much budget should be sufficient for new bloggers?
Her regional experience stretches from Singapore to Hong Kong, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, India, Indonesia, Australia, UK, Germany and USA. Her clients are mainly Philips Medical, Levi’s, Uniqlo, Fuji Xerox, Red Cross, Far East Hospitality, The Hour Glass, Sentosa Harbourfront Business Association, World Kitchen Asia, Parkway Cancer Centre, Asia Malls, Ginza Calla, Republic Polytechnic etc.
Next, research individual affiliate programs to compare their structure. You want to consider factors such as how much the commission is and how often the affiliate pays. Also, make sure you understand what rules, if any, a company imposes for being a part of its affiliate program. Additionally, you’re likely to make more money with affiliate marketing content that is similar to your own.
Wouldn’t it be nice to never have an awkward sales meeting again? Imagine a sales meeting starting with, “I’ve heard great things about you, how do I start?” as opposed to, “so I this coupon and figured I’d give it a shot”.
Create a website about the topic that you have chosen. The key to succeeding with affiliate programs is to build a content-rich website with useful information built around a specific theme. Don’t just lazily throw up a quick site or blog and string a bunch of affiliate links all over your pages. You have to start by building credibility, and the best way to do that is to write about something you know a lot about.
Note: Requesting an interview is a great way to start getting to know an influencer. After that, just keep nurturing your relationship and building your list. You will probably need 5,000-10,000 subscribers to start gaining attention from the biggest authorities.
In this case study the campaign was not only getting a positive ROI, but it also took the Amazon rankings of this product to pretty non-existent to the 2nd page on it’s way to the first page, in a matter of weeks.
Thanks so much for such a comprehensive affiliate list! I’m always looking for the best ones and even more curious how much people are able to make with their affiliates to know if they are worth my time.
Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways to monetize online content. While there are many true stories of Internet entrepreneurs amassing small fortunes by delivering high-converting referral leads to affiliate businesses, this relatively straightforward concept isn’t always as simple to execute as it appears.
Email Marketing: This method involves the marketer to embed a form for email subscription for visitors on the site. You get to have the visitor’s name and email which would help you maintain a long-lasting relationship and the lead gets a regular newsletter from you.
Are you ready to create your brief and attention-grabbing Facebook Video Ad? If you make this campaign really effective, it will help you build brand awareness and boost the popularity of your business.
Then it’s time to write the script. Write up what you want to say, how you’re going to say it (if you’re doing a voice-over), and what graphics and text you need. Make sure that your message is on point and not too long. It should sound natural when read aloud. And try to keep what you say to a minimum — when it comes to online video ads, “less is more” is a better approach.

The most compelling reason to upload directly to Facebook is because that is what this platform favors. In fact, Socialbakers found that they received 10x more engagement from uploading directly than linking to YouTube:
Great post Leanne, it’s always great to see affiliate marketing in a concise and to the point fashion. When using analytics to track conversions, what factors do you feel are the most important to focus on for affiliate marketers? Where do you see a lot of affiliate campaigns fall flat in terms of optimizing their campaigns?

In this form of affiliate marketing you are showing your presence. You are promoting the product in the form of blog, a video or a podcast. But the publisher does not have the personal experience of using that product. This level of marketing has its risk as sometimes the buyer comes back to you or maybe he asks the details of the product. If you do not have the proper information about the product, your credibility as a marketer is at stake. On the other hand if you had the personal experience of using that product, you will feel confident in promoting it and you will be more than willing to help the consumer in case of any query on his part.
Hi Chris, I am at step 2 of your course: Keyword Planner: Search for new keywords. Based on your recommendation to use Google Adword Keyword Planner, I created an Adword Account, logged on, but I did not see:

Beginning of December, I saw some of my websites are losing rankings, most of them are promoting Amazon and using amazon plugin. Do you see any of your website that promoting Amazon also loss rankings ? Just curious.
But even more important than the quality of your video is the content itself. You could make the worst quality video ever, but if the content makes a connection to the end user then you can hit it out of the park.
Review member policies on every community website. Verify whether you are allowed to post affiliate links to a site. Some online communities may prohibit affiliate links and consider the links advertising spam.
In December, we started testing Premium Video Ads as a way for advertisers to drive branding objectives on Facebook. Starting today, we’re introducing these ads on Facebook with a select group of advertisers.
My favorite strategy is to have a “Soft CTA” in the first 25% of the video and a “Strong CTA” at the end, where you tell the viewer to “click the button you see on the screen or the link in the post.”
Is it necessary to have a blog website? What if I wanted to create a straight up e-commerce site selling products from major retail outlets. A website that rewards with discounts or other special promos just for buying through our affiliate site.
Use quality copy to promote these products. You want to paint an effective picture that shows how your product will change the lives of your prospects. You must clearly show the features and benefits. In other words, give the prospects a reason to buy the products you are promoting rather than from somebody else.
If you are looking for a detailed breakdown of affiliate marketing, including myths, this is a good place to start. The author walks you through the process of getting started and makes a few useful suggestions on pitfalls to avoid. Well worth the money for the information you receive.
Hey Chris – great post. Just a question – We have got about 80 stores affiliated to Amazon Associates. As I understand from your article, it appears that the blog site is a foundation for making a successful Amazon Income. In this regard, we don’t have a blog site but we just have those stores (websites) which have a show case of products. What do you think the strategy would be to drive sales? Of course, we have got Social Media Marketing currently in place.

Greetings from India and a customer of yours (of Amazon Theme sold as private label rights product a few months ago). Thank you very much for this detailed article which really served as a primer on affiliate marketing with Amazon/other physical product merchant sites.
What’s great about this video is that it hilariously (yet, not maliciously) pokes fun at the target audience, while also identifying the downfalls of their competitors’ products. Not to mention, they cleverly found a way to increase their share count and views by having users send the video to other “bros” they know on Facebook and other social channels. By urging viewers to rally support for this faux cause, Organic Valley was able to expand the reach of the video and get more out of their investment.
We’ll also explore what makes for a good ad and review some tweaks you can make to raise your performance. By watching this course, you’ll learn everything you need to know in order to create an effective Facebook ad and manage a powerful ad campaign. I’m excited to provide you with a solid foundation to achieve your advertising goals. Let’s get started.
Regarding “convincing someone to buy your product is not that easy”, I do agree with you, but at the same time, I remember all those products I’ve bought online. I did not search on Google for those products neither I went to the company websites to get information and buy. They were affiliate people and their blogs that inspired to buy them. PrettyLink Pro, SEO Pressor was recommended by Kimberley, I bought Profits Theme, WP Zon builder because Alex Whaley recommended. Similarly I bought CommentLuv Premium because Ileane, Kavita, Steve and many others were talking good about it.

Delegate and automate what’s possible. It’s a common mistake to perceive oneself as irreplaceable. In fact, everybody is replaceable — especially, when it comes to routine day-to-day tasks that can be easily automated.
Some commentators originally suggested that affiliate links work best in the context of the information contained within the website itself. For instance, if a website contains information pertaining to publishing a website, an affiliate link leading to a merchant’s internet service provider (ISP) within that website’s content would be appropriate. If a website contains information pertaining to sports, an affiliate link leading to a sporting goods website may work well within the context of the articles and information about sports. The goal, in this case, is to publish quality information on the website and provide context-oriented links to related merchant’s websites.
“There is no longer a singular video experience for advertisers,” Rabkin wrote. Getting a twenty-something to watch a Story ad for 10 seconds might be harder than getting a senior citizen to sit through 10 seconds of a non-skippable in-stream video ad, so the value of those views should be weighed accordingly. “What’s more, those 10 seconds don’t tell us much about the value created, because duration data alone isn’t great at fully predicting business results across different experiences,” wrote Rabkin.
Nice post. I never had any luck with Clickbank. However it is one of the largest marketplace for digital products. Finding a right product from Clickbank marketplace is a very important job. This article will definitely help the marketers to choose right product.
Within more mature markets, less than one percent of traditional affiliate marketing programs today use cost per click and cost per mille. these compensation methods are used heavily in display advertising and paid search.
Two-tier programs exist in the minority of affiliate programs; most are simply one-tier. Referral programs beyond two-tier resemble multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing but are different: Multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing associations tend to have more complex commission requirements/qualifications than standard affiliate programs.
Another post from Tubular Insights offers more info on video posts specifically, stating they get 50% of their views on day one after publishing, followed by a sharp decline in engagement. Here’s that post as well:
It can feel overwhelming to do all the necessary work involved in setting up your site and building your reputation. But trust me, once you’ve made that first sale, all the hard work will be worth it!
If an order sent to 1mg lacks necessary details, like documentation of a prescription, 1mg staff can send customers a message via WhatsApp’s tool for larger companies, asking them to provide an image of the document. Chats from the company appear on customers’ phones as coming from WhatsApp verified users.
Nevertheless, making such extreme life changes is a great challenge, and not everyone has the guts to chase their dreams to this degree. Not everyone can flip their life upside down like that. Especially, when you turn thirty and it hits you that you’ll never be younger.
1 question I have although it may be obvious. Promoting Amazon products as an affiliate – ok I get that part. What if the product is sold on Amazon but not fulfilled by Amazon? Would the affiliate still earn a commission?
Thats a great point, and I’ve definitely seen my fair share of those “how to start a blog” posts. That’s always been a good fit for people at Location 180, and if they do a good job on the post (truly make it useful) that’s one that doesnt bother me as much – solely because I know how valuable starting a blog can be for your life and goals. So if it’s some personal finance blogger that creates one and you start a blog from that by following their tutorial – all the better!
