Facebook – How to motivate visitors to click on your links


In my research,  I found a fantastic blog and website “Wishpond.com“. It is manna for the hungry 🙂

This site is just a fantastic source of information on how to drive free traffic to your social media pages and I have already downloaded two of their free eBooks on Content Marketing and Contests & Promotions on Facebook.

Fresh from Wishpond blog is an article on 8 sure ways to drive link clicks on your Facebook posts.

In short, the 8 ways are:

  1. Give a preview with a “See the whole thing: [Link]” Call-to-Action
  2. “Our Contest is on! Enter to win [Blank]: [Link]”
  3. “Want [Blank]? Check out [Blank]: [Link]”
  4. “Learn how to [Do Something]: [Link]”
  5. “Need to [Solve a problem]? Here is an easy way to do it: [Link]”
  6. “First-Time/Behind-the-scenes/Exclusive” [Blank]: [Link]
  7. “Check out this great [Food/Beverage/Item]! Click here for the Recipe: [Link]
  8. **Bonus  – Drive more clicks with links to Facebook page tabs

Reading the entire post completely opened my eyes to what was possible on Facebook and especially on how to use Facebook in a constructive manner to drive traffic to a page and obtain leads without needing to spam groups or my own timeline…

I really want to succeed online without having to resort to online pollution!

I actually don’t even read the posts which come from the groups I am part of anymore. It is a real turn off to see all these “get-rich-quick” schemes which do not bring any added value. I might be a bit old fashioned (that’s probably my age lol :-)) but I am certain that I can achieve my goals while still being able to keep my ethical values. I want to be able to build a strong following and a list of people who can relate to me and not people who are going to unsubscribe from my list as fast as possible because they feel pressurize to part with their money.

Maybe I am still full of illusions… Let me know how you feel on ethic in affiliate marketing, I would be interested to get your feedback.

Well Folks, that’s all for today, I am looking forward to write another post for you very soon.

Marketing Tip: 5 ways to put your Email Call To Action to work

I have subscribed, on LinkedIn, to several streams of information and one of them is “Marketing”. I get lots of really interesting articles and one of them caught my attention because it is something I would definitely use in an email campaign.

This article comes from “Marketing Land” and is very comprehensive.

In resumé, the five ways to put your Email Call to Action to work are:

  1. Image can cost you sale: too heavy to load or being disabled by the email recipient
  2. Focus on Value and Direction: always focus on the next step
  3. Repeat your call to action (CTA): use a P.S
  4. Use urgency: give deadlines
  5. Test unique formats

If you are interested in the subject, I really advise you to read this article from “Marketing Land” as it is full of seriously good tips.

’till next time, bye for now.


Hi everyone,

I’ve decided to keep a blog to follow my efforts at creating an affiliate marketing business online. Unlike most of the success stories I have read so far, I am not broke, not homeless and do not hate my life lol.

I just realised that at 46 I did not have much to my name and that I was not really happy with what I was doing. I am actually bored with my job and I would really like to earn enough money to be able to help all the charities which are close to my heart.

The question is, is it really possible to earn online?

So, I’ve decided to try it out. I started searching online for opportunities about 2 weeks ago and I found a site for paid surveys at home. It seemed like a genuine business so I joined for 37 dollars, but I soon realised that it was a farse to complete all these form and that wasn’t door me.

But one day I received an email from plaid surveys at home regarding affiliate marketing and I was immediately very interested. I didn’t know the first thing about affiliate marketing but it sounded exciting.

As soon as I registered my email to get more information, I got totally drown under promises of get rich quick schemes! And to tell you the truth, if my credit card had not been up to its limit I would have probably opted in in a few of those and loose my money for nothing!

I got slightly frustrated and started searching for genuine people who had succeeded. By  searching Network Marketing VT I read a blog by Vicki Berry and then downloaded her ebook “Achieving 7 level of network marketing success” . By doing that I received a very personal email and a very nice contact with Vicki. That was my first genuine contact on line with someone with experience and not harassing me with scam emails. Thank god for people like Vicki!

A few days later I received an email from one of the “harasser” but with a content which draw my attention: it was about Michael Cheney’s IPO, as the price to join was 500 dollars, I did not even consider it and anyway, my credit Cardin would have gone quack quack… I was intrigued though. I weren’t to look up Michael Cheney band what I found was only positive. He is a bit showing off but he has 15 years of success behind him so I didn’t take his suggestions lightly.

In one of his reviews, he spoke about Chris Farrell Membership, and highly recommended it. So, I went to look him up and I was really impressed with what I saw.

Therefore, I’ve decided to join Chris Farrell Membership to learn all about online marketing and I am going to keep you posted about my progress.

Well then, I think it is enough said for one evening, just watch this space, I might be able to buy the Louis Vuitton bag I saw this afternoon in Geneva (only 13’700 francs) in a few months Lol.
