Facebook “Research” Application Helps You Make Affiliate Bank

It’s about 47 days to Shawn Collins and Missy Ward’s Affiliate Summit West in Vegas, and if you’re headed there, drop a note in the comments and I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for you.

I added a note to my Facebook profile to add a countdown alert (via the Top Countdowns application).

So some of the choices available:

I picked the 2nd from the bottom cos it looked kinda “slot machine-ish”. [You'd have to pay a hefty sum to see the cupcakes on my profile..........]

After I added it, I was thinking about unconventional uses, specifically guerilla tactics for Facebook applications for affiliate marketers…

If we get a chance to talk at Affiliate Summit West next month in Vegas, you’ll discover that I do niche and product research very differently from other affiliates – whether SEO, blackhat or PPC affiliates.

I believe a lot of it has to do with my background in journalism…

During the dotcom era in early 2000, the startups which were on the verge of crashing-and-burning didn’t have much incentive to give you an exclusive interview, or give out any clues as to what was happening.

So I’ve developed an intuitive demographic/psychographic behavioral-based system to my research process and marketing campaigns…

So looking at the Facebook Top Countdowns application, think about it for a moment, what events are people likely to bookmark? Important ones? Significant events?

Think people will be motivated to pull a “sickie” to be able to catch a major sports event (the Olympics, the Super Bowl, World Cup Soccer), launch of a new book or movie (like the Harry Potter novel or movie, or Star Wars), or new product (like the next Nintendo WII or incarnation of the Apple iPhone or iPod)?

If anything, events like Valentine’s Day, the start of the new season of popular TV shows like Prison Break, Lost and American Idol Season 7 have all been flagged for you.

Smart affiliate marketers merely need to match these events with an appropriate affiliate or CPA offer and count the sales come in.

Failing which, you could always celebrate Chuck Norris’ birthday on March 10th…

    I really wanted to make this one. A few of my partners from Orlando are making this trip but it’s about a week before my child is due so I am unable to attend. I will however be making some events finally in 2008 so I am hoping to meet you in person sometime this year Andrew.

    Hi Andrew Wee !!

    I am brand new to this so I do not know if your above comments are genuine or not. Please forgive my stupidity if you really don’t care…

    I have read your posts on the forum and I saw where some members talk kinda hard to you, and I in a sense understand that its because they don’t get you… I on the other hand am very intrigued by what you are saying and While for the most part I have no idea WTF you are talking about, I can sense you are quite a knowledgeable person.

    I hope that I will get a chance to chat with you {Warning: I talk A LOT and VERY loudly} and get a chance to really absorb your message.

    I’m not really sure if this came across well or not, if it didn’t, please be aware that I am very excited to think I might could get a chance to chat w/ you…..

    Steve Williams
