How do I get free affiliate traffic?
You will need to understand that this strategy will only cost you the time and effort that you put into it. You will need to spend sometime getting yourself familiar with this technique.
Okay, with that being said lets dive into this and get you started.
Introduction To The Strategy
This is an introduction to you as an online marketer, and also to the FB traffic strategy that you may consider using.
-How long have you been doing online marketing for?
-About your journey so far — give the person reading a deeper understanding of you as a person
When you are discussing the actual FB strategy, you don’t ever need to talk about results you do or don’t have. That is not what you are trying to accomplish here, what you are trying to give someone is a way for people to get targeted traffic looking at their affiliate links.
Which is why i say, make sure you are using this strategy, and you are comfortable knowing that you can get targeted traffic looking at your own affiliate links.
Remember — if you don’t have results, then don’t claim results — be specific on what you are trying to achieve with people. Also, ONLY create and use this method if you actually use this strategy in your business.
Phase 1 — Find Your Audience
Go into niche related private Groups on Facebook (example — if your niche is Affiliate Marketing/Digital Business, then seek out groups that are related to Affiliate Marketing and Digital Business).
Join the private groups. Please note — settling for public groups isn’t advisable as you will experience a lot of spam in those groups.
BIG TIP — The rabbit hole of groups to find is endless. Keep searching, and you will keep finding absolute gems of groups to join. Additionally, look at influencer pages and profiles too!
Phase 2 — The 3 Strategies
When in these groups, you have up to three different strategies to deploy in order to generate your traffic.
1. Cold Strategy — The Numbers One — In this strategy, i go to the members section of the groups, and i add in total, 25 people a day (no more).
2. Warm Strategy — The Helpful One — In this strategy, you will seek out people in these groups who are actively asking for help, that you know you can help and give value to, in the form of a comment back to their post. This strategy requires you to just help, no pitching in any way at all. When you find people respond positively to your comment/s, then add them.
3. Warm Strategy — The Authority One — In this strategy, you yourself will post in these groups (pick one or two a day to post in), with the sole purpose of giving value. Maybe sharing a struggle, something you’ve overcome etc. Above all, this again is ALL about helping people, so no pitching or self promotion AT ALL. Again, when you find people responding positively to you, you may add them.
Phase 3 — The Value Giver
When you add people, you can also simply drop them a very gentle message, letting the person know where you found them, and a question to help ignite the conversation, but DO NOT drop a link or ask someone if they are interested in what you have to promote.
“Hey (insert name), i found you in the (insert group name) group….I take it you are a fellow (insert niche title) too?” — works really well as an initial question.
When into a conversation, then this is where you find out as much about the person as possible. This is the point where you want to qualify them as a person that you can help.
It’s not about you, it is about them.
So as a few examples, ask them:
How long have you been doing (insert niche)?
How have you been finding it so far?
What are you currently promoting at the moment? (if in the affiliate niche)
The point of the conversation is to create an environment where your prospects will openly tell you what their biggest struggle is. Often, after asking those three questions, you will be able to uncover exactly where you believe their biggest struggle lies.
Please note — at this stage, don’t suddenly just rush into giving them an affiliate link, instead, continue to share your journey in online marketing (or whatever niche you are in), share your motivations, your own struggles, find out about them, their life, their goals etc
If you feel comfortable and confident in giving value to the person — in the form of a response back to what they are struggling with (without mentioning the affiliate product you are promoting), then do it! It will really help you to share wisdom and knowledge.
Phase 4 — The Drop
At this point, you may then recommend them a product that is designed to benefit their life.
If you have conducted the last few phases correctly, you will have shown yourself as a real human being, who has created an environment of trust with your audience, who has shared value/content with them to help them with their specific struggles.
This is now the time to recommend them, your affiliate product.
“I have something for you that i think you will get a ton of benefit out of, especially if you are currently struggling with (list believed struggles), do you want me to share the link for it?”
Phase 5 — The Follow Up
Some people will purchase your affiliate product on first looking at it, but many won’t — that is fine.
This is where you need to follow up with your prospects to ensure that they get further value out of you, and see your affiliate product offer more frequently.
(At this point, list some options of potential follow up ideas — like we have run over in the session today)
When you have your own group, you can create exclusive content for those people in the group, every single day.
When you have them on your messenger, you always have that 1 on 1 connection with them.
The follow up is the key here.
That is the 5 Phase Process of FB Organic Traffic!
