    Hi guys,
    My name is Rotem and on this journal I'll tell you how I made 300$ a day with only one Facebook page of 100k likes and several more small pages.
    I'm in IM field for 3 years. First, I'll tell you that before I entered the IM field, I was in offline communication for a lot of years.
    Basically, most of the money I made on the net came from international guerilla marketing campaigns, because of the reason that still, most of the PR firms are having troubles to reach the level of exposure that some simple methods that are available here, on BHW, can get.
    If you let me, I'll divide my journal to several parts and let's start with Facebook traffic. I believe that whoever read this journal and take some of the following ideas, can reach that amount of 300$ a day really soon.
    I read here a lot about making money from Facebook pages and I believe that someone with better knowledge in affiliate marketing than me, can make a lot more, but keep in mind that I'm only talking about one Facebook page with 100k likes that transfer traffic to one site, a site which is full with affiliate ads, paid videos etc. (The better affiliate ideas you'll get and try, the more you earn).
    This method works best in a specific country and worse in a worldwide market.

    The niche: VIRAL NEWS AND FUNNY PICS
    The tools: A Facebook page with a suitable name for the "Funny" niche or the "Viral" niche, the page must contains at least 100k likes (real fans only)/
    The concept: Get 30k from the page and transfer them to the site.
    The beginning: Just like agriculture, grow your page carefully.

    Facebook doesn't like the fact that we transfer a lot of traffic from it to other sites and those of you that are dealing on a daily base with Facebook traffic must have noticed to the fact that if we publish a pic or status without link, we get a lot more interaction than if we do the same with a link to an outside site, so also if you got a fan page with 100k real likes, it will take about a month for the users to get use to your new method and to show the amount of interaction you inspire to.
    Back to my experience, I started with one Facebook page which I published on it about four or five pics a day with time differences of about 1-2 hours between them. At first, the pics were all high quality and some of them I made myself.
    After about a week, each pic got about 300-500 likes and also some shares.
    You must understand that a part of this method is your own feeling, so. If you got what your fans like, keep publish.
    About two weeks later I got that if you add on the status above the pic "a call for action", the users react 3 times more (don't ask me why), examples for such call for action are: " Loved it? Hit the Like!", "saw it? Hit the Like" etc. sometimes easy math problem or reason question can do the trick also.
    This kind of action, beside the fact that you tripled your interaction rate, will bring you more exposure by more people organic and virally and Facebook system will "open" your page to more people's feed, that will "wake" fans that are not normally interact with your page.
    The target is, first of all, getting the "Talking about it" level to at least 30% of the number of the fans on your page.

    **Important - when you're growing the page, don't add links to your posts, not even one!**

    If in two weeks you didn't reach 30% "Talking about it" than start use the question option on the posts, don't ask sophisticated questions, aim for the lowest common denominator, another simple and great way is for example: "THE FIRST WHO ANSWER WHAT IS HIDING IN THE PIC GET A PIZZA" - of course that you keep this post untouched on the page for several hours, the result will be thousands of likes a lots of comments, now all you have to do is find the first that answered correctly, tag him, tell him that he won and send him a pizza! Try not to con you fans and even ask the winner to upload a pic with the pizza to the page, it add more credibility.
    After about two weeks, if you have reached 30% "Talking about it", you will see that the speed that you get likes and comments is increasingly higher; our goal is to reach a speed of 50-100 likes per minute for the first two minutes.
    Because you are building a tool that supposed to transfer 30k of traffic to your site, we want to exploit as much as we can, the fans that are already on the page so, I used sometimes Facebook ads, I took my strongest post of the day and aimed it to my fans only, which means that the pic will show only to to those who already like my page, that's in order to increase the level of exposure to the page's content from the fans.
    Already get 50-100 likes per minute? Ok, let's proceed J
    Until now we published 5-10 pics a day and it's time to move up, our goal is that the "Talking about it" will be equal or over the number of fans on the page.
    Now, the hard work startsJ, it's hard because you need to upload 30-40 posts a day and in order for it to work, you need good viral pics source.
    Don't start uploading before the teen's returns home from school because they are the most viral fans.
    The first pic of the day doesn't have to be the strongest, upload it, wait half an hour, upload strong pic that will make a lot of interaction, let it reach 400 likes and of course that it reaches 50-100 like for the first two minutes, then upload another one, yeah, I know, it can happen after three minutes J
    Explode the page with this kind of pics in sets of three one after the other and wail an hour. You will find that all three equally moved up and keep getting likes.
    By doing this process you will see that some fans are leaving , don't worry, from those who leave, you will not make money anyway J
    After about a month of exploding your page with pics, the Facebook system is used to your work nature and so does your fans and that the "Talking about it" is as we said, you can start send traffic to your site, now you know what your fans like, so fill your site with that content.
    Remember the three pics sets? Now, on the third pic add a link, not just a link, but a strong status which "call for action", like a viral video, that you share a picture of it with a "Play" button from a screen shot that you made from the video, and the status says "Click here for the full video" etc.
    The result of this process is a big amount of traffic from Facebook, if you learn your fans, I guess you don't have to use more than 5 links a day to reach the amount of traffic you want.
    It's important to emphasize that this method is not for lazy, it's hard work, but it will definitely bring you money!
    If you have any questions, I'm here :)

    Are you talking about fans or likes ?:)

    It takes time to work with that method, we spend something like 16 hours daily on all our IM projects.
    I didnt say that it's easy:)

    Tagging people is very important in this equation as well. Facebook will suggest users for you to add. Then start adding them all. Make sure you have content already so it doesn't look like you're a fly by night. Start tagging users. Start with your more active users and move on from their. I know some viral sources to grab pics from but can't post them here.

    Using a similar method to me, but looks like you work a lot harder on the user engagement where as I have just invested massively in huge pages.

    I have 2 mil fans now and I bet traffic will surge if I implement your engagement method.

    so do you only insert links on image posts or do you promote links to your sites by themselves as well?

    I do it local and its a small country, so it's impossible to grow a page like that:)
    I found that when i post the direct links its brings me less traffic..

    I am in this niche too, have a journey thread as well. Can you post some decent cpm advertisers? I am creating a second site devoted to mgid but wondering if there's any with higher rates.

    I'm about to get one Worldwide page and will add it to your service :)

    My method is very good for targeted countries.
    I read your post. I like your ideas and I think that you are doing it GANGNAM STYLE !!! :bee2:

    The more the people that work with me the higher the CPM I can manage. I will be applying to one of the largest Advertisers ASAP.
