How to work with Facebook and Google: a case study for those earning with affiliate marketing

Today our partner MyLead describes one of the possible ways to work with Facebook and Google.

Facebook and Instagram. Both are great places to earn on affiliate marketing. There are, however, some obstacles that make this process considerably more difficult, and of course, we mean blocking and deleting affiliate links. Fortunately, we have some ideas on how to avoid blockages so you can earn with social media effectively.

In this case study, we will show you how to work with Facebook with a “paste-a-link” site and Google document. In these examples, we used an affiliate program from the MyLead offer. 

Operating on Facebook with “paste-a-link” sites

“Paste a link” site is a mini subpage with hyperlinks. In our case, the hyperlink will be a link to the following affiliate program:

To promote the campaign, we decided to use the website, which allows you to build a mini-subpage where you can place an affiliate link. also lets you add texts as well as emojis.

At this stage, it is worth emphasizing one more important issue – to shorten the affiliate links. Before you place a link on your subpage, shorten it to make it look more reliable. Such a procedure will positively influence the number of conversions. For example, you can use for this purpose.

Let’s go back to the subpage. While creating, you also need to complete additional options:

Visibility – check “hidden”. This way, the page will be visible to people who have a link. Leave the rest of the settings as default. 

After the changes, the subpage looks as follows:

Using Keitaro tracker

By operating on Facebook, you can also use the tracking system for affiliate networks. Trackers allow you to test several affiliate programs at the same time with one link. This means that the publisher does not have to intuitively assess which campaign works better. After a careful analysis of the statistics, the publisher chooses the most profitable affiliate program.

An example of a tracker is Keitaro. It allows you to create, e.g. smart links and generate reports based on 30 indicators to measure the effectiveness of the campaign. The advantage of this solution could also be the seamless integration of Keitaro with PHP, JS, and the popular content publishing system: WordPress. 

Earn on Facebook with Google document

Another way to effectively work on Facebook is to use a Google document. Of course, to do this, it is required to have an account. Select “New” from Google disk. On your screen, you will see a blank Google document. Complete it with text and decorations to catch the recipient’s attention. You can modify the text according to your preferences.

Lastly, be sure to remember about file-sharing settings. You don’t want the people who receive the file to be able to edit it, do you? There is a way to do that. To prevent this, select “File” from the menu and then choose “Share”.In the share box, mark that the generated link can only be used for viewing the content, not for commenting or editing.

At this point, we remind you to edit the link generated by Google. 

Now you know how to work with Facebook and Google documents. By following the above advice, you will be able to earn effectively on social media.
