I do a lot of experiments on Facebook. I build niche fanpages and then sell them products related to the niche. There are some great niches on Facebook such as pet niches or sport niches.
Over time I have learned how to create fan pages for very cheap. I can get the likes down to less than 1¢ a like. That enables me to build the fan page of tens of thousands of fans for few $100. As long as the fans are extremely passionate and there is a product that ties into the niche it is profitable.
Now, however, I am trying a new experiment which I’m not sure is going to work or not where I advertise an affiliate product directly to a niche audience. This way I skip the whole process of building and maintaining a fanpage and go directly to that target audience and send them to the product that I want them to buy.
This is exactly what I did using the Google cash method which is now banned by Adwords. I was making up to $60,000 a month using this method back in 2006. I’m not sure if it to work from facebook but it’s worth a try. I keep you updated.
