I have read in the forum various comments about Facebook. Some saying it has helped drive traffic and sales. Others saying it produced few results for them.
I don't do Facebook or MySpace. However, I am considering signing up. So, I have a few questions.
How can one use Facebook or MySpace to drive traffic to their site? How can one use Facebook or MySpace to help a site or sites become more productive? Are there any "tricks" to using Facebook or MySpace as a positive Affiliate Marketing Tool?
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated? Thanks in advance.

I HAVE found facebook and twitter to be useful (I don't use any others) in promoting my site and merchant program. Basically, whatever I do that is new with the program or site, I post it on there. Anything I write about on ABW that is in my program's forum, I post it on there.
I have noticed that both affiliates AND people who purchase checks from our site as well, follow my website's facebook and Twitter accounts . Since some of the people that follow me are customers, I also feature products occasionally to peek their interest. This is also beneficial to the affiliates because I often feature products that are hot sellers or that people have expressed a specific interest in.
I always say, it doesn't hurt to try. If it helps you, great! If not, then you only wasted a half hour (give or take depending on how much you do to start) setting it up and a few minutes now and then posting on it and commenting on your followers posts.
I also use my twitter account when I am at conferences for contests and promotions in which I would sometimes need to let people following know where I am or what I am doing. It worked and got quite a bit of attention.
As for "tricks" the only one I really use is to link my twitter account into my facebook account so that when I "tweet" something it will automatically post to my facebook account so I wouldn't have to do both separately.
I hope this helps you to decide either way.Jill Swartwout, President

When filling a cup, every little drop helps. Facebook is not so hard to do and it's free to put up a page for your business. Posting one update a day is enough and as more people come to "like" your page, they would likely be posting there, too, so you won't be hard-pressed for content on your facebook page.
And there's an application that automatically tweets your facebook posts. So you can kill two birds with one stone.

JILL - Wow! Thank you very much. That explanation was very helpful. I went to your Facebook page to better understand what you meant and got a idea of what I need to do. Again, thanks. Your response answered most everything I was wanting to know.
AFFILORAMA - I agree. Every little bit helps. I can't believe it's July 2010 and I just signed up for Facebook last night. I am so far behind on this modern technology stuff. Thanks!
