As an affiliate marketer have you ever thought that you need to be utilizing social media channels but just don’t know how? Being an affiliate you know that your success depends on the size of the audience you can reach with the products or services you’re promoting. What better way to reach new customer then through the use of Facebook. Facebook’s audience is currently over one billion and growing. That means that there is a whole new world of new customers just waiting to “like,” “share,” and promote your products.
So how do you place your affiliate products in the Facebook platform? Simple, you implement a Facebook shop for your business/fan page. Once you get that working, it is time to think about adding this option for your existing publishers/partners and recruiting others based upon their social audience.

Through various client interviews and case studies, we have learned that our application not only can boost your traffic from your social sites, but it can also aid in Facebook page engagement.
Since we were built to redirect traffic during the purchase and checkout process that means our back end is built for hyperlinks for each product. For an affiliate marketer that means you can provide these hyperlinks with unique tracking code for each one of your products in your Facebook storefront and in your partner’s storefront. This should work within your current structure for how you sell and report to your network.
We also have made it easy for you to upload a large quantity of items with a simple data feed. Typically it is .csv file but we can also accept .xml, and Google Product feed.
