    **This is a completely free method & is 100% friendly for anybody at any stage in the affiliate marketing careers**

    Facebook ads are complicated. And when you bring in affiliate marketing, the complexities reach another level

    I receive a lot of enquiries from affiliate marketers from the beginner level to the advanced level

    However, the questions are similar:

    1. How do I run affiliate/CPA offers?

    2. How do I not get my next account banned?

    A straightforward but complicated way to do it was (and still is) the cloaker.

    For people starting out in affiliate marketing, a cloaker is a tool that hides your actual landing page (the money page) from the ads reviewers & shows them a dummy page (safe page)

    This allows your ads to get approved

    However, this feature has big chunk in it's armour.

    Even the most efficient cloakers aren't 100% safe and that leads to a lot of account bans. Plus, blacklisting of the domains

    It's extremely difficult to get your personal account back once it's deleted. And buying a new one that actually works is expensive.

    Unless, you know what you are doing, this is the most frustrating part of Facebook ads as you have to face as a marketer

    I personally, would refuse to work with people that wanted to work with CPA offers/affiliate marketing as that involves logging in via VPS's, setting up ads repeatedly because of frequent account bans & not being able to use my tools with these ad accounts for proper optimisation


    I just wouldn't take them up even if they offered with a lot of money. It just wasn't worth it.

    However, that has all changed after a little experiment I tried with my new found love - chatbots

    Basically, what a chatbot does is converse with the user like a human who's available 24/7. It helps you automate everything from marketing to sales and has the potential to replace complete websites


    Messenger apps & now chatbots have completely revolutionised how we communicate and they have done equally well in changing how marketers approach advertising.

    To the unitiiated, gambling & dating are the most popular affiliate offers to market primarily because of how easy it is to attract people to them

    Now, most of these offers are grayhat if not blackhat. So, they give Facebook a bad name. As a result, Facebook has prohibited advertising such offers unless you get prior permission (which again is extremely difficult to obtain & impossible for an affililate marketer)

    The experiment that I performed was in the dating niche. However, this method will work for any niche

    So, here's what I did

    I took the top 3-5 offers that my client sent me and created a chatbot with the offer. All the offers were sign up offers for dating sites

    Now, since dating ads are not allowed, your ad can also not talk about dating (directly).

    However, there are subtle ways of pushing your intended message across to the user without looking like an ad on those Tube sites

    Look for the policies for dating ads get inspired

    The funnel looked like this: Ad->Messenger/Chatbot>Offer

    I can't give away the exact copy, but it was based around a listicle. This allowed me to put forward multiple offers in front of the user when they messaged our chatbot

    Now, whether they clicked on those links or not is not of the highest importance. What is important here is that we've captured them as a lead.

    Now, we are free to message them as many times as we want.

    I setup follow-up messages offering them value & then gradually pushing for our next CPA offers to them in the course of the next 2 weeks

    Have been successfully running the ads, and here are the results:

    This was quick guide. I might update this in the future. I'd love to hear what you would like to add more to the article for it to provide more value to every affiliate marketer

    If you have any questions, please post it here

    nice, finally someone that got this out....

    I have one questioin, how do i reach for the tool " chat bot " via ads? I have never seen this option before.

    Do you make a " normal " ad just that you have the " chat option " on the ad? im a little confused as you can see..

    Will recommend cloaking and landing pages if not going for the chatbot

    How many conversions you have actually got after implementing this method? Yes, i can see you have driven the traffic via messages but at the end of the day what matters are the conversions..

    Also if your ad copy wasn't related to the actual offer there is a low chance to having the prospect converted on the offer isn't it?

    Thank you for your time in answering these questions :)

    The CPA offer was presented directly to the user as is after they initiated the bot

    We've had upwards of 50% conversion rate from message to visits to the offer landing page


    I believe this suggests that the ad was congruent with the CPA Offer

    Hi Prakhar,

    Can you give us an example of an ad being congruent to a dating offer? As that is where most issues arise, with the approval.

    Cheers

    Try it but avoid completely XXX photos. Facebook tends to detect such photos

    What’s the ROI for this campaign? Why you did not improve the ad spend budget if the ad sticks for a few weeks?

    If you weigh the pros & cons, then chatbots seems to be more logical (inexpensive, follows FB rules, keeps user within Facebook, turns them into a lead etc)

    However, cloaking does remove the additional step involved. So it's a more direct approach

    Due to current limitations of a chatbot, anybody with a fair idea about what he is doing with the landing page, ads & the cloaker, would see better results for the same reason

    It’s not always about conversions. It can be about lead generation. Don’t jump the gun ...
