      Tutorial: How to Create a Facebook Profile”




                                                                         6
                  How to Make Money With Facebook



1 – MARKETING YOUR OWN PRODUCTS

If you already have a product that you want to sell, you can use Facebook.


    1.1 - Use Your Facebook Profile to Present Your Products

    The simplest way to sell your products in Facebook is to make a
    presentation in your profile:

            Describe them;
            Place photos and videos (that can be shared);
            Maintain a regular update of your profile with new entries;


    Create a website or a blog for your business and mention it on your
    Facebook profile as a way to better know your products and buy them.
    Post and share links guiding to your website.
    The main idea is to arouse the interest of your readers to a point they’ll
    visit your site and eventual buy your product.
    The key of success is how you manage your profile to keep it dynamic and
    interesting for your potential customers. Keep posting on a regular basis.


    1.2 - Facebook Marketplace

    Facebook Marketplace is a kind of classifieds with a lot of merchants
    using it. It deserves to be mentioned as it’s the easiest way to start
    selling your products.
    With Facebook Marketplace, you can buy and sell anything using the easy
    listing service. You can list what you want, what you have, and see how
    you know the people who have created listings. The Marketplace
    application page displays all the most recent listings in your networks,
    and easy ways to filter and search for what you want.
    Enter Facebook Marketplace, click “Post a Listing”, follow the instructions
    and your product will be added to the listings.


                                                                              7
            How to Make Money With Facebook




1.3 - Create a Facebook Page for Your Business/Product

Facebook pages, (also known as Fan Pages) in addition to generating and
raising your brand awareness, can be used for all kinds of sales
promotions , with a bunch of links to product landing pages on your site.
This means that you already have a website or a blog for your business
before creating your Facebook page.




                                                                        8
             How to Make Money With Facebook

If you have any doubt on the process to create a page in Facebook, read
the following tutorial before going any further on this e-book: “How to
Create A Facebook Page”.
As any other sales and marketing effort, your business page has to have
your dedication, you need to work hard on it and it needs to engage the
customers on a regular basis to constantly remind them why exactly are
they your fans:

       Upload a logo or photo with a web address at the bottom - it
        won’t be clickable, but fans can see where to go if they want to
        visit your website.
       Fill out your info page completely - Here you can have a
        clickable web address, company overview, mission, and
        products. You can give only what Facebook asks for or be
        creative and provide other information as well.
       Add photo albums – showing your products is very important,
        use this Facebook resource to present your products.
       Add Videos – this a simple and direct way to present your
        products, make short movies (or slide presentations).
       Post often - the same rules apply to Facebook as any other
        social media. It’s all about content and interaction. Post every
        day or even several times a day to make sure you’re showing up
        in the news feeds of your fans. This can be links to your blog,
        product announcements, questions, news items, or anything
        your fans would be interested in.
       Send updates to your fans - this feature is like an email. Don’t
        abuse it, because Facebook fans aren’t expecting ―and don’t
        want) an avalanche of messages from you. But used wisely, this
        handy feature lets you update fans about your products, sales,
        and events.


Facebook has an application, FBML (Facebook Markup Language), that
allows you to add new “application tabs” to your tabs or box in which you
can render HTML or FBML to enhance your page customization.
If you’re not sufficiently skilled with CSS/HTML, don’t worry we’ll show you
(see Annex 2) how to:




                                                                           9
            How to Make Money With Facebook

        Use FBML to create a landing page - the idea is that instead
         of sending people to your wall, as most people do, you send
         them to a landing page with whatever message you want to
         provide (see Annex 2.3).
        Use FBML to create tabs - tabs at the top of the page are like
         site navigation, you can have a tab for your newsletter, a tab
         for donations, a tab for products, etc (see Annex 2.2)


You can find a lot of good pages in Facebook, we found “I Love Boating”
which is very simple but a good example of what we’ve been presenting.


Once you have a Facebook page, people won’t come knocking on your
door without a little work. Promoting your page helps you increase your
number of “fans” and visitors, your potential customers:

       Invite your friends - you’ve got your own friends on Facebook,
        and, for sure, some of them are interested in your
        products/business. Send them a personal message inviting
        them to check out your page.
       Keep your page fresh and tasty - keep the content fresh.
        Remember the viral nature of Facebook, when someone
        interacts on your page it may appear on that person’s Facebook
        feed, indirectly promoting your page to their friends.
       Create an incentive to join – set up a prize just for your fans,
        offer a surprise discount to an upcoming event, or make special
        announcements on your page before you do elsewhere.
       Use your mailing list - email people on your contacts list and
        invite them to check out your Facebook page.
       Put a button on your website - put a button it on your website
        and/or your blog linking to your Facebook page.
       Don’t leave your fans hanging - respond to all comments on
        your page. Ask them questions in the discussion board. Send a
        message to say hello to all new fans.
       Don’t spam - sure, this is actually the way how not to promote
        your Facebook page.




                                                                       10
             How to Make Money With Facebook

1.4 - Set Up a Facebook Virtual Store

Usually, a virtual store app would have many of the products available at
the retailers online store showcased within the app and users can click
their way directly to the checkout at the retailer’s online store ―leaving
Facebook to complete the transaction).
There are a lot of applications that you can use to set up your store, one
of them is Payvment E-Commerce Storefront .




You just have to install the app. This app gives you everything you need
including a full-featured administration area to manage your storefront
and products directly from Facebook. Plus, when you launch your
storefront, your products can be discovered and even purchased across
any storefront on Facebook.
Best of all, it's free! Payvment does not charge anything nor take any cut
of your sales revenue
You’ll need a Paypal account to set up your store.


1.5 - Create Products

If you don’t have your own products to sell, you can create products and
sell them as your own.
There are two good sites where you can customize your own products:




                                                                         11
     How to Make Money With Facebook

 Zazzle lets you create products for sale. You can also use the
  application My Merch Store to post and sell your Zazzle
  products in your Facebook.




 ZEE lets you personalize watches online, which you can sell as
  your own product at Facebook.




                                                               12
                  How to Make Money With Facebook




2 – ADVERTISING

Advertising is one of the best ways to make money on Facebook. For that, you
have to create space for advertising on your Facebook.
You don’t actually have to sell anything on your Facebook , you just have to put
advertising space.


    2.1 – Make Your Facebook Interesting

    A lot of people browse Facebook for interesting content, things that are
    worth to taking a look at. You’ve got to think of ways on how to make
    your profile/page interesting, so a lot of readers go to your profile/page:

                     Causes to support;
                     Funny stuff;
                     Photos;
                     Music content;
                     News;
                     Thematic approaches; … …
    The goal is to develop a popular Facebook that would be of interest to
    advertisers.


    2.2 –Find Advertisers

    Now, that you have a successful Facebook page, with a lots of fun stuff,
    you have to find advertisers. This is really where the real work begins.
    The best solution is the so called “Affiliate Marketing” ―before go any
    further see Annex 1)
    To find the kind of advertisers to put up their banner ad on your page the
    best way is trying to combine the following issues:




                                                                               13
             How to Make Money With Facebook

        Merchants with products related to the main subjects of your
         page (if you page is about books, Amazon should be
         considered).
        Merchants with products than can be of interest of your
         readers (if the main goal of the people visiting your page is
         finding friendship or meet people online, FriendFinder is a good
         option)


After having selected the most indicated programs for your page, you
have to study the compensation of each one in order to figure up those
that can bring you the best income, which is a combined function of two
factors:
       Highest revenue campaigns;
       Most attractive products for your readers and fans.

This final choice will set up the income you can have with your page, so
you have to make a serious study before taking a final decision.

Don’t expect instant results, you have to give some time. If, after two or
three weeks, your income is very low, select another advertiser and
replace the existing one.

All campaigns have a limited life time, usually your income will increase,
than will remain stable and finally will start decreasing. At this point, the
best solution is to restart the process and replace the advertiser.



2.3 – Create a Space for Advertising on your Facebook

Now, that you’ve selected the right advertiser, you have to create the
space to advertise on your Facebook.


       2.3.1 – Using “My Stuff” Application

       My Stuff application is a simple application that lets you install
       codes (simple HTML) on your Facebook profile.




                                                                            14
      How to Make Money With Facebook

You don’t need to be a HTML expert to insert images or banners
in your profile. In order to fit in the left column of your profile, the
right image (or banners) dimensions should be 180x150 (or
smaller).
As an example we’re going to show you how to insert this image
in your profile:




This image is stored at ImagesShack. The image address is:
      “http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/1263/testingad.jpg”
When     clicked   we    want           it    to    open      “Google”
(http://www.google.com).
So the HTML code for this operation is:
  <a ref=”http://www.google.com”><img src=”
  http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/1263/testingad.jpg”></a>



You go to My Stuff application, and, after having installed this app,
you go to «My Stuff» on your Facebook profile and click «Add
Code».
Copy the HTML code and paste it into the box of My Stuff:




                                                                       15
     How to Make Money With Facebook


Add it to your profile and, that’s it, you have an image/banner at
your Facebook profile:




When a visitor clicks in your banner he/she will be redirected to
the Google’s page.
You can test it and see how simple that is.
To insert a banner from an advertiser, you just have to copy and
paste the code provided (see Chapter A1.3.2) to get something
like this:




                                                                 16
     How to Make Money With Facebook

2.3.1 – Using FBML to Create Advertising Space

FBML (Facebook Markup Language) is an application allows you
to add new “application tabs” to your tabs or box in Facebook
page (see Annex 2).
You can use FBML to creat advertising space in your Facebook
page (see Chapter A2.4):
   Insert advertising in the left column of your page wall (see
    Chapter A2.4.1)




   Creating Advertising Tabs (see Chapter A2.4.2).




                                                               17

3 – SHARE LINKS

Share links is a Facebook tool that ables you to share internet content with
your visitors. It’s a very simple resource but can be used to make money.


    3.1 – Share Links in Your Facebook Profile

    Share links in your profile is very simple. It can be shown buy following
    image sequence where we’re going to share a link to Yahoo:




                                                                            18
              How to Make Money With Facebook

The final result is:




3.2 – Share Links in Your Facebook Page

For share links in your Facebook page the process is exactly the same as
the one we presented you in the last chapter.


3.3 – Share Links in Your Facebook Group

Just like your profile and Facebook pages you can also share links in
yours Facebook Groups. The process is similar to the one we’ve
presented in Chapter 3.1.
How to use Facebook Groups to make money is the theme of Chapter
5.1.


3.4 – Advertising With Share Links

Again, you can use Affiliate Marketing (see Annex 1) to advertise with
Share Links of Facebook. For that, you just have to use the links provided
by the advertiser (see Chapter A1.3.1) and use the simple address for
Share Links purposes. You can also add some nice comments to get the
interest of your visitors.
You can have something like this:




                                                                         19
             How to Make Money With Facebook




In order to avoid disperse your earnings by different sites, the best way is
to use an Affiliate Network, posting each day different advertisers of that
network. This way your advertising balance will be in the same site and
you can present different opportunities to your visitors, keeping your
page/profile interesting to your visitors.
Don’t be surprised if some links are refused. That’s Facebook filter
working in order to avoid scripts or some sites. If that’s the case, try
different links or another advertiser.




                                                                           20

4 – FACEBOOK APPLICATIONS

The Facebook apps industry has exploded over the past couple of years and
it’s really making big money.
There are 4 routes which you can take to make money from Facebook apps:
             Install and use apps to make money
             Marketing apps
             Create your own apps
             Develop apps under contract


    4.1 – Install and Use Facebook Apps to Make Money

    There are Facebook applications, free of charge, which you can use to
    transform your Facebook into a money machine. No technical skills are
    required, you just have to install and set up:


          CaféPress - the CafePress Listings application allows Facebook
          users to list and promote CafePress stores on their profile. With
          this app you can start selling whatever you have on your store via
          your profile.




                                                                           21

      RadicalBuy – with this app you can sell anything on your Facebook
      page. List an item and have it visible to all Facebook users instantly.
      The innovating part is that you can offer commission to others who
      will sell your items on their Facebook page, allowing you to reach
      more potential buyers.




4.2 – Marketing Facebook Applications

As Facebook apps are all free to use you can make money by placing
advertising inside them. For that you can buy applications and, after
customizing them (advertising included), you can make them available for
all users, ready to install. Your money will come from advertising.
Apps-R-us has an online store where you can buy apps ready to make
money as soon as you launch them. They provide info and support to help
you to make the most out of your purchases, and there is a wide range of
different apps from games to quizzes to eBooks and guides. Many of
them are sold multiple times in a generic form, but include a control
panel that you can use to customize them and make them into
something unique.




                                                                            25
             How to Make Money With Facebook

All this applications include space for traditional banner ads. You can
choose advertisers from Affiliate Marketing (see Annex1) and place
their banners in your app.
To work with these applications no special technical skills are required,
but you should try the free stuff that Apps-R-us has available before
spending any money on major apps.




4.3 – Create Your Own Facebook Applications

Instead of buying Facebook applications and using them to make money
with advertising, you can create your own apps.
Again, you can do that without special technical skills.
AppBank is company focused on developing software to help Facebook
users create social entertainment applications—and get paid for them.
Their idea is to give average Facebook users easier ways to make simple
apps like quizzes, surveys, and games in their spare time, and more
effective ways to make money from them by providing targeted
advertising.




                                                                        26
             How to Make Money With Facebook




 GiftApp Generator is a tool which anyone can use to easily create gift
apps for Facebook. There is real focus on helping you to make money
from your creations and each one has 4 potential income streams.




 They also provide plenty of information on how to maximize the money
you make to how to use them to drive traffic to your websites. It’s a great
little tool and the only drawback is the limited range of things that you can
create with it.


4.4 – Developing Facebook Applications Under Contract

This is an indirect source of income. If you have technical skills, you can
develop applications under contract for third parties. A lot of companies
are posting contract jobs over the Facebook’s developers forums. There
is a large gap in the supply and demand of developers, therefore finding
potential customers to charge reasonable rates shouldn’t be difficult.




                                                                            27
                How to Make Money With Facebook




5 – OTHER FACEBOOK RESOURCES

There are other Facebook resources/tools which, with some dedication and
work, can be used to make money.


    5.1 – Facebook Groups

    Facebook group is a huge community. As you know, anything that involves
    a large community is an opportunity to make money. There are Facebook
    groups that have over 50,000 and sometimes even 1,000,000
    members. So, this can be a very good change for a source of income.



           5.1.1 – Create a Large Group

           If you have doubts about how to create a group in Facebook,
           there’s a good tutorial you can read: “How to Create a New
           Facebook Group”


           To obtain a large group it takes a bit of patience and common
           knowledge:
                 making the group name fun and interesting that makes
                  people want to click on it;
                 making a group on the most recent hot issue;
                 making the group fun and edgy;
                 having a clear theme on what the group is about;
                 invite friends;
                 join similar groups and recruit;

                    etc.
           When the group is beginning to grow periodically everyday, that’s
           a sign things are working.




                                                                           28
     How to Make Money With Facebook

Once you have a large number (min. 300, but more than 1.000
would be better, ideal some thousands), you can use money
making techniques.


5.1.2 – Using Share Links

To use this technique, the idea is to accumulate enough
interested readers on a specific topic and, when it is the right
time, use your power as the group administer to disclose sites of
your advertisers, using the Share Links resource (see Chapters
3.3 and 3.4).


5.1.3 – Creating Events

Events is the most powerful tool you can administrate in a group
in order to be used to make money. See Chapter 5.2.



5.1.3 – Selling Groups

Sell groups can be consider as a violation of Facebook terms. But
some transactions have been done, some with figures above
$15.000. The price depends on the number of members.
Is difficult to find a buyer. Most of the transactions have been
done in the other way around, owners of large groups are
contacted buy potential buyers and an offer is made.
Who are the potential buyers? People knowing the real marketing
value of a community of thousands members.
In what concerns to a money making strategy, selling groups
cannot be a goal itself. But if you manage to create a large group,
you may get someone interested in the business.
In practical terms, selling a group consists transfering the
complete administration of the group to the buyer.




                                                                  29
             How to Make Money With Facebook

       5.1.4 – Join Others Groups

       Join other group and use the posting ability can be a money
       making strategy. You can use it to promote your website or to
       drive people to an advertiser.
       Don’t spam, join groups that interest you or that can be helpful to
       you. Make posts in line with the discussion or try to answer
       questions, advising a site or a product. If you post an advertiser
       link, use the shorten URL technique (see Annex 4).


5.2 –Facebook Events

This resource is available in your profile, pages and groups. The really
good thing about events is that you can invite all your friends and it’s a
safe way without being caught in the Facebook spam filters.
If you want to know more how to create and use the Events tool, check
this good presentation “How to use Facebook Events to Promote Your
Business”
Events are very useful and a powerful tool if you pretend to organize real
events to promote your business. But, if you are 100% virtual, you still
can use this tool to increase your income.
If you want to get good results with the events tool, don’t use it too often,
you can be seen as a spammer and lose the interest of your friends, fans
and members.


       5.2.1 – Using Affiliate Marketing

       A lot of advertisers (see Annex1) have regular special and limited
       offers (Christmas, Valentine day, etc).
       This is a very good opportunity to create an event (in your profile,
       page or group) and inform your friends and members of this good
       opportunity.
       You’ll drive them to the advertising link provided by the advertiser
       (see A1.3.1) in order to earn commissions on the eventual sales.
       Let’s see an example.


                                                                            30
      How to Make Money With Facebook

 We are going to create an event about the Special Mother’s Day
promotion on Amazon.com on our Facebook page (you can do a
similar process in your profile or group).
The advertiser provides a link for this promotion. We shortened
this link (see Annex 4) because is too large and, this is the main
issue, people will see it and think we’re just trying to sell them
something.
We fill the event box:




And the final result is:




Now you can share this event with all your fans.


5.2.2 – Promote Your Own Products

If you have a website selling your products, you can also launch
special promotions and create similar events (see last Chapter) to
drive people to the promotion landing page of your website.


                                                                 31
             How to Make Money With Facebook

5.3 – Share Videos

Adding videos to your Facebook (profile, pages or groups) and sharing
them can be used as a good marketing tool to promote your products or
your advertisers’ products.
If you still don’t know how to add videos to your Facebook, check this
tutorial: “How to Upload Video to Facebook”


Video marketing has become one of the best promotional tools for
businesses on the Internet. When the videos are well executed, they can
easily grab the attention of potential customers. Slick and short
informative videos get viewed. Video advertising gets the viewer's
attention faster than print advertising.
Online video marketing is far more advantageous than other traditional
marketing tools. Potential customers are more inclined to watch a short
promotional video than to read the details on a website.
A video with good slick graphics and clear to-the-point explanations of the
service or product shown is key to attracting customers. A good video
marketing campaign can sell a product or a service better than other
advertising mediums.
So, you can use the Facebook “Share Videos” tool to add your own
promotional videos and drive potential customers to your web site or
advertiser landing page. Among others, is important to consider three
basic rules for your presentation videos:

        Slick & Short;
        Informative & with clear explanations;
        Display a well visible page link (where to buy or to get more
         information; for advertisers links, - see A1.3.1 -, is always
         better to use the URL shortening technique - see Annex 4).


If you want to learn more about presentation videos making, read
following articles: “How to Make a Presentation Video” and “How To
Record A Screen Video Presentation”.




                                                                          32
             How to Make Money With Facebook

Making a presentation video is not an easy task. A simple way to start,
and at the same time making good presentation videos, is using
PowerPoint. Check this video to know how: “How to make a movie from
PowerPoint”.


Check the final result, as an example, of a video upload to a Facebook
group ―note: a link in the comments it’s very important, in this case we’ve
used a shorten link):




5.4 – Facebook Chat

Facebook chat is very similar to every other instant messaging service. If
you are not an expert on this tool, there’s a nice article you can check:
“Chat on Facebook”.
As you know, the marketing of 1-on-1 communication on-site are endless.
To use this technique a good background work as to be done. Check all
your friends’ profiles, you’ll find people posting problems, questions
doubts, needs, etc. You’ll be surprised what people post to their Facebook
updates.
Make a list of your friends to whom you can offer a product (yours or
from an advertiser) or a service to solve their issues. Then you have to
find them online in the Chat and present your solution to their problem.
The sale only depends on your marketing abilities on a 1to 1
presentation.




                                                                          33

6 – OTHER SOURCES OF INCOME

So far, we’ve presented you the main techniques you can use to make money
with Facebook. There a few other aspects you can consider in your project.
They can be an alternative or a complement.


    6.1 – Sell Your Own Services

    People will pay for skills or knowledge that others (such as you) possess.
    What skill set or knowledge do you possess that you could sell to others?
    Or what could you learn to do?
    The answer to those questions will tell you what services you can sell
    online.
    The sale of a service is basically the sale of specialized time. Someone
    with a specific knowledge or ability sells hours which deliver solutions
    required by a "customer". Get some ideas at “Businesses You Can Start
    at Home” and “Find Your Ideal Business in 5 Simple Steps”.
    To marketing your own services on Facebook you can use the same
    techniques we’ve shown you to marketing your own products.


    6.2 – Sell Ideas

    If you have a good idea for a new Facebbok application, but you don’t
    have the skills (or money) to get it up and running, you can sell the idea to
    companies like Bay Partners.


    6.3 – Referring People To GPT Programs

    “Get Paid To” Programs ―see Annex 3) are becoming an interesting and
    very popular way to make money online.
    One of the main streams of those programs is to refer people and get
    commissions on their earnings (see A.3.2). You can use all techniques


                                                                                34
             How to Make Money With Facebook

we’ve shown you to advertise Affiliate Marketing and advertise your
Referral Link.


6.4 – Contextual Advertising

Contextual advertising is advertising that relates directly to the content of
the webpage on which it is served. It’s now the leading way on online
advertising. To know more about it, see this article “Contextual
advertising”.
It would be great to use it in your Facebook, but unfortunately is not
possible as you have to insert scripts and that’s not allowed by Facebook.
If you want to use Contextual Advertising, the best suggestion is to
creating your own webpage or blog, where contextual ads are displayed,
and promote it on your Facebook with banners or links in order to drive
traffic.
Google Ad Sense is the most known provider of Contextual Advertising,
but there a lot more you can use, see “11 Contextual Ad Alternatives to
Google AdSense” and “AdSense Alternatives: Contextual Advertising
Programs To Make Money Online”.




                                                                            35
                  How to Make Money With Facebook


ANNEX 1 – AFFILIATE MARKETING

Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards
affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate's
marketing efforts. The main revenue methods are:
       PPS – Paid Per Sale – the affiliate gets a percentage (or a fixed
        value) per each sale made buy a customer brought by him;
       PPC – Paid Per Click – the affiliates earns for each click he gets on
        the affiliation links or banners;
       PPM – Paid Per Mille impressions – the affiliate earns per each
        impression of the affiliation banners.


Affiliate advertising is basically an online marketing channel. An advertiser
pays you to promote the advertiser’s products or services on your site.
You have to register to an affiliation program and then promote their
products. Promotion material (banners, links) are supplied by the merchant,
usually, a HTML code that you copy to your page.
If you want to learn more about affiliate marketing, read these 2 articles:
                      o “Affiliate marketing”
                      o “Compensation methods”


     A1.1 – Find Advertisers

     We won’t be wrong if we say that in a simple internet search you can find
     hundreds of advertisers with a system of “affiliation”.
     Apart of individual advertisers, the so called “Affiliate Networks” can be a
     good     option,    because      they    offer    hundred      of   different
     merchants/products that you can select to promote.
     If you want to sell advertising at your Facebook, the search of advertisers
     is a very important part of your work, the final income depends on that.
     So, dedicate extra time to this job.




                                                                                 36
            How to Make Money With Facebook

To star, we can suggest you a few options. They’re not the best or the
only you can find, but they’re, for sure, good options:

     AffiliateBot            Affiliate Network
     Amazon                  Books, music, software
     Apple                   Apple products
     BuyMeBeauty             Beauty, Cosmetics and Make Up
     bwin                    Sport betting, poker, casino
     ClickBank               Affiliate Network
     Comission Junction      Affiliate Network
     eBay                    Everyone knows eBay
     FriendFinder            Several social network
     MedStore                Health products
     TradeDoubler            Affiliate Network
     Zanox                   Affiliate Network



There are also sites comparing and reviewing affiliate programs which
can help you to choose the best options for your Facebook page. Four of
those are:

                100 Best Affiliate Programs
                AffiliateTips.com
                AffiliatePrograms.com
                AffiliateSeeking.com



A1.2 – Selecting Advertisers

There’re some important issues you should consider in order to select
the right advertiser:

        Read all the details about the opportunity including the
         payment conditions, the terms, the payment processor, etc. A
         low minimum cash out ($20-$100), at least once per month
         and by PayPal are reasonable conditions.
        Select affiliate program ads that are consistent with your
         content. Ads that don’t match your content will undoubtedly be
         clicked on less frequently (meaning less revenue for you).




                                                                      37
            How to Make Money With Facebook

        Boosting your income through affiliate advertising takes time
         and practice. Don’t be afraid to test new ads, placement,
         programs and more until you find the best mix to meet your
         goals.
        Select products which you are sure that you simply can market
         in great numbers. Selecting those with higher commissions is
         not always the best choice, normally those products are the
         ones more difficult to sell.


You can find a good a tutorial about this subject at “How to Select the
Affiliate Program that Works for You”


A1.3 – Promotion Material

The promotion material is provided by the merchant: banners, links,
graphics, etc. In what concerns Facebbok, the interesting ones are links
and banners.


       A1.3.1 – Links

       These are simple links provided by the merchant that you can put
       in your page. Those links, when clicked, lead to the product page
       and, at the same time track the origin (your page) in order to
       process your commissions, if that’s the case.
       Those different kinds of links. Usually it’s a HTML code similar to
       this one:
         <a href=" http://ad.your_advertiser.com/abc/?1234567890xpto">The Best
         Product</a>




       You copy the code and past it in the right area of your page, it will
       display a link in text line ―in the example “The Best Product”). For
       some Facebook purposes (Share Links and others), use only the
       address:
                 http://ad.your_advertiser.com/abc/?1234567890xpto




                                                                                 38
              How to Make Money With Facebook

        A1.3.2 – Banners

        The merchants will give you a lot of banner options. To use in
        Facebook, we advise you to chose those with following
        characteristics:

                Right dimensions (depending where you want to place it);
                Simple images format (avoid flash);
                With simple HTML code (avoid iframes and scripts).


        The merchant will provide the HTML code for the banner chosen
        by you, which will be something like this:
               <a href="http://ad.your_advertiser.com/abc/?1234567890xpto"><img
               src=" http://ad.your_advertiser.com/abc/?1234567890xpto"
               align="bottom" width="468" height="60" border="0" hspace="1></a>




        You copy the code and past it in the right area of your page, it will
        display a standard banner (468x60) in your page.


A1.4 – Second Tier Affiliation

There are Affiliation programs that additionally pay you commissions on
sales generated by people you referred to the program.
In other words, you can promote the Affilition site itself. Someone that
registers in the Affiliation program brought by you will be your referral.
You will earn commissions on the revenues those referrals bring to the
Affiliation site. This is called second tier affiliations ―you’re the first tier‖.
There are a few programs that pay on a multi-tier basis (3 or more
levels), which means you can earn on referrals of referrals revenues.
So, apart from the products, you can also promote the Affiliation
program and get referrals. In some programs that’s a very good source
of income.
The promotion materials are of the same kind of the products: banners
and links.

ANNEX 2 – FBML (Facebook Markup Language).

FBML (Facebook Markup Language) is an application allows you to add new
“application tabs” to your tabs or box in which you can render HTML or FBML
to enhance your page customization.
If you’re sufficiently skilled with CSS/HTML, you can develop a lot of good stuff
for your page. There’s a good tutorial to start on this language: “An
Introduction to Facebook Page Development and FBML (Facebook Markup
Language)”.
As this e-Book cannot consider you as an expert, we’ll present some simple
exemples of how to transform your Facebook page.


     A2.1 – Add Static FBML to your Facebook Page

            Step 1 – Add Static FBML to your Facebook Fan Page

                   Visit Facebook Static FBML App page at
                    http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=4
                    949752878
                   Click “Add to my Page” in the left column
                   You have successfully added Static FBML to your Page.
            Step 2 – Add Your FBML Box or Tab to Your Facebook Fan Page

                   Click on “Edit Page” in the left column right under the
                    logo/ profile image
                   Find the “Static FBML” link, click “edit”
                   Enter the name you want to appear in the box heading in
                    the “Box Title” field such as Video, etc.
                   Enter the HTML content in the “FBML” field.
                   When you’ve added in your HTML click “Save Changes”
            Step 3 – Place Your Static FBML Appear Either in the Tabs or
            Left Column




                                                                                40
           How to Make Money With Facebook

             On your Page’s main page, click “Edit Page” under the
              logo/profile image
             Locate the FBML application (it will be called whatever
              you entered into the Box Title field, plus “FBML”‖, and
              click “Application Settings”
             Make sure “Box” is “added” and “Tab” is “added” and
              click “okay”
             Click on the “Boxes” tab on your Wall ―at the top of the
              center column)
             To have the FBML box appear in the left (narrow)
              sidebar column of your Wall, locate the FBML box on the
              Boxes page, click edit/pencil and select “Move to Wall
              Tab”
             To have it showing up in the Boxes tab at the top, go to
              the FBML box you created in your left column, click the
              edit/pencil and select “Move to Boxes tab”
      Step 4 – Creating Additional Static FBML Boxes

               Click “Edit Page” under the logo/avatar of your Fan Page
               Locate the FBML box you have created
               Click “Edit”
               Below the fields for the box you created, locate and click
                “Add another FBML box”


A2.2 – How to Add Nice Tabs to Yout Facebook Page With FBML

      A2.2.1 – Using images to add tabs

      The easiest way of making nice tabs it’s using images. In order to
      have a nice fit, we advise you to use images with max. 758 pixels
      width. To make those images, you can use any software you have,
      let’s say Paint from Microsoft Windows. This is up to you.
      Try to make the best image you can. Before starting your project,
      navigate in Facebook pages, you’ll find some good ideas (as an
      example, see this one)
      Let’s say this image is the right one for your business:



                                                                         41
     How to Make Money With Facebook




You place this image somewhere in your website (say
MY_SITE.COM), so the address of your image will be something
like this:
“http://www.MY_SITE.COM/Images/dream.jpg”


So, the HTML code to insert this image with a link (when clicked)
to your site will be:
<a href="http://www.MY_SITE.COM">
<img src="http://www.MY_SITE.COM/images/dream.jpg"></a>


For any other situation, you just have to update that code with the
right addresses:




As an alternative, you can store your image in free online hosting
site like ImageShack, and the address of the image will be
something like this:



                                                                  42
     How to Make Money With Facebook

“http://img123.imageshack.us/img123/1234/dream.jpg”
Following the steps listed in Chapter A2.1, in the step 2, you’ll
have this FBML form:




Click “Save Changes”. If you now go to your page, the new TAB
―“Your Dreams”‖ you just created will be there:




                                                                43
         How to Make Money With Facebook

So, your imagination is the limit to use images to present your
business and/or your product.
You can create several tab (see step 4 of Chapter A2.1).


A2.2.2 – Built a new Tab in HTML

If you know how to use HTML, you can make a tab in the same
way you make a web page.
If you want to learn more about HTML, you can read this good
tutorial: “HTML tutorial”.
Use a good HTML editor and test your project before inserting
the HTML code in the FBML form.
Now let’s try to create a TAB with a small “Table” presenting
several products. A TAB “My Products” is added




The original HTML code is:
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse: collapse; text-align:center"
bordercolor="#111111" width="578">
 <tr>
   <td width="25%" align="center" colspan="2" style="border-left-style: solid; border-left-width: 1;
border-right-style: solid; border-right-width: 1; border-top-style: solid; border-top-width: 1">
   &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;




                                                                                                         44

       You can customize it for your own products:

             Replacing “http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/2504/cake1q.jpg” and
              “http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/1673/cofee2o.jpg“for the addresses
              of the images of your products.
             Replacing the names and prices for your own.
             Replacing the landing pages for “More information…”
              ―“htt://www.MY_SITE.COM/Products/cake.html” and
              ―“http://www.MY_SITE.COM/Products/cofee.html”‖ by landing pages of your
              own site.


A2.3 – Use FBML to Create a Landing page

Instead of sending people to your “wall”, as most people do, you can send
them directly to the tab you prefer. Imagine you want your visitors land in
the tab “My Products”:

                  Click on “Edit Page” in the left column right under the
                   logo/ profile image
                  Find the “My Products - FBML” link and click “Link to this
                   Tab”
                  A box will display with the direct link for your tab,
                   something like:
                   “http://www.facebook.com/pages/YOUR_PAGE/1113344556
                   6779900?v=app_123456789965”
                   which you can now use to promote as the link to your
                   page. Shortening this link is, sometimes, a good option
                   (see Annex 4).



                                                                                                                46
           How to Make Money With Facebook


A2.4 – Use FBML to Add Advertising to Your Facebook Page

Now you know how to use FBML to insert code in your Facebook page,
let’s use that to add advertising space to your page.


      A2.4.1 – Insert Banners in the Left Column

      To insert an advertising space in the left column you have to
      create a new Tab ―as we’ve showed you in last Chapter‖.
      In the FBML form you’ll insert the HTML code provided by your
      advertiser (see Chapter A1.3.2) .
      You’ve created a new tab with your banner. To have the FBML box
      appearing in the left (narrow) sidebar column of your Wall, locate
      the FBML box on the Boxes Tab, click edit/pencil and select
      “Move to Wall Tab”.




                                                                       47
      How to Make Money With Facebook

and the final result will be something like this:




      You can insert several ads, but we advise you not to
      exaggerate on this issue. To avoid too many tabs, you
      should not show the tabs of this kind of ads. For that, go to
      the Application Settings (on your Page’s main page, click
      “Edit Page” under the logo/profile image) and select
      following options:




                                                                  48
     How to Make Money With Facebook

A2.4.2 – Creating Tabs as an Advertising Space

You just have to create a Tab only for advertising purposes. You
have to use the techniques you’ve learned in Chapter A2.2 and
use the HTML code provided by your advertiser (see Chapter
A1.3.2).
Using a large banner, you can create something like this:




You can also use an HTML editor and compose very special tabs
for advertising (something similar, for advertising purposes, to
what we’ve done in Chapter A2.2.2).
You can create different tabs. The presentation of you page
depends, from now on, on your imagination and marketing skills.




                                                               49
                  How to Make Money With Facebook




ANNEX 3 – GET PAID TO (GPT)

GPT ("Get Paid To") is becoming more and more popular in the web. In general
terms, GPT can be described as a program where one is paid to see
advertisements. Technically, GPT Programs, are websites in which the user
performs an action and receives money for doing that.
To know more about GPT, check the article “Get-Paid-To Programs”.


    A3.1 – GPT Categories

    Depending on the action you have to do, there are different types of GPT:
                 PTC – Paid To Click;
                 PTR – Paid To Read E-mails;
                 PTP – Paid To Promote;
                 PTS – Paid to Surf;
                 PTSU – Paid To Sign Up;
                 PTPT – Paid To Post;
                 PTCO – Paid To Complete Offers;
    etc.
    The most popular one is PTC ("Paid To Click"). How does a PTC work? In a
    very simple way: the site has a list of banners or links where you have to
    click; when you click, it opens a new window with a timer; when the
    counter ends (usually 30s), the value per click is credit on your (usually
    $0.01). You can repeat this process to all available ads. After a few days
    you'll have some dollars, then some hundred dollars, and so on.


    A3.2 – Referrals

    Referrals are persons you indicate for the GPT website. As the Second
    Tier Affiliation (see A1.4‖, the GPT program provides you a “Referral Link”
    in order to promote the site. All those you register using your referral link
    are your referrals.



                                                                                50
             How to Make Money With Facebook

Most of the GPT sites pay you a percentage (in some cases can be
100% , the so called “Bux GPT”) of the earnings of your referrals. Some
of them pay in deep levels of referrals (referrals of your referrals):



              Level 0 – You

              Level 1 – Your Direct Referrals

              Level 2 – Referrals of your direct referrals;

              Level 3 – Referrals of your level 2 referrals;

              …. and so on.



Most of the times, the real earnings come from your referrals. They are
the true key of GPT. That’s why is so important to promote your link and
to get referrals


A3.3 – Find GPT Programs

Before joining a GPT, get information about it. There are a lot of scam
sites. Good sources of information are the GPT forums, like
GetPaidForum. Check, also, this “Tips and Advice”.
You can find lots of GPT sites in the internet or in websites like:
               Euros-Dollars.com
               Best PTC Pay To Click Trusted sites
               The Best PTC Sites




                                                                       51

ANNEX 4 – URL SHORTENING.

URL shortening is a technique where a provider makes a website address
available under a very short address.
For example the address


         “http://WEB_SITE.com/partners/index.asp?ik=293
         8373635353423aid=1234567890&dcl=987657
         898761”
can be shorten to something like
         “http://bit.ly/49yGtu”


If you want to know more about this subject, there’s a nice article about it:
“URL Shortening”.


    A4.1 – How does URL Shortening Works

    It works in a very simple way. When people go to the short address they
    will be redirected to the original address. It’s a kind of a ghost website
    driving people to the real one.


    A4.2 – Providers of URL Shortening

    You can easily find free URL Shortening providers with a simple search in
    the internet. The two most know are:
                Tinyurl.com
                Bit.ly




                                                                             52
                How to Make Money With Facebook

    A4.3 – Advantages and Practical Use of URL Shortening

    In what it concerns Facebook, URL shortening can be very useful in two
    situations:
          Shortening your Facebook landing page (see A2.3) – a short
           address, in graphical terms, is not so difficult to insert in a
           banner and it’s an easy to remember URL.
          Shortening an advertising link (see A1.3.1‖ it’s easy to
           remember, mainly when you have to show an URL and expect
