Making Money on the Internet starts with Marketing on Facebook

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere, you’re aware that social media in general and specific techniques like Facebook have become indispensable tools for making money on the Internet. There are some big differences in the way you need to run a successful campaign on Facebook and the way you did things using other media, and first and foremost is the level of and the speed with which you react to feedback.

Remember that while you need to focus your efforts on Facebook to make , it’s a good idea to use other media channels like email, print and even your website. Point all input back to your Facebook page to keep things focused.

Any Facebook Ads campaign that you run needs to have a clearly defined way of measuring your response and while the ‘like’ button is a favored method, there are others too such as Graph API and other Social Plugins that have been specifically designed to let you know which campaigns are more successful than others. Post purchase sharing is another critical element. Once someone has bought and checked out, giving them the option to post to their wall about the experience gives them the ability to have control over the experience. You get more much needed input about where you can improve the entire package.
