I am using ClickBank as the example network and product here, but you can use ANY product and the same idea will apply and same steps as I cover in the tutorial.
Running ads on Google instead?
Read this post to learn how to do affiliate marketing on Google Ads.
Let’s quickly go through all the steps step-by-step:
Step 1: Create a Facebook Ads account
👉 Simply sign up for an account at: https://business.facebook.com.
You do have to have a Facebook account to sign up for a Business manager account, so just go to facebook.com first if you haven’t already and create your personal account.
Then head over to the website listed above and create your “business” advertising account.
Step 2: Select a product
👉 In our case, we are promoting a ClickBank product, so just head over to https://www.clickbank.com to sign up.
Make sure to fill in the details correctly – ClickBank has some triggers that can put a block on your account if the information isn’t accurate.
Then just head over to the marketplace and select a product – EZ Battery Reconditioning in our case.
Step 3: Create a Facebook page
Unlike Google Ads, you have to have a Facebook page to promote on Facebook.
Simply head over to your business settings, go to “All Pages”, and create a new page.
Once you do that, click on “View Page” and just fill in the blanks to make your page more appealing, such as via adding images and filling in the “About” page.
Step 4: Create a landing page & thank you page
Next, we have to create our landing page so that we can promote our affiliate products on Facebook. You can use any page builder you like, but I use Unbounce for their dynamic text replacement capability and flexibility in editing.

I spend some time building out the landing page and thank you page, but it’s generally pretty simple. Just check out my Unbounce playlist if you want more information about specific component of building out a page, such as adding a favicon or setting up a custom domain:
We would need to then make sure that the landing page button is taking us to the thank you page, and that the thank you page is taking users to the affiliate offer.
Step 5: Set up conversion tracking
Tracking isn’t easy for an affiliate, especially when doing affiliate marketing on Facebook ads.
However it is absolutely necessary because ultimately, you are paying for sales, not for clicks or impressions…
I use a very specific tracking tool (ClickMagick) that allows me to track any affiliate product.

Watch the video as we go through this whole process step-by-step of setting up conversion tracking for when are ready to promote on Facebook, or any ad network really.
I also have a ClickMagick playlist here if you want to know any specific details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZEkCaZSIJA&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion
Step 6: Set up an autoresponder
An autoresponder allows you to gather your most valuable asset (your email list/audience) while paying for traffic or reaping the results of time spent and hard work of SEO.
Email marketing is one of the best ways to make money when doing affiliate marketing on Facebook Ads.
You can use any autoresponder you like, but I use GetResponse and it hasn’t disappointed me yet.

Step 7: Promote on Facebook Ads
Finally, the fun part. We are now ready to create our ads and promote on Facebook Ads.
I don’t spend too much time going over every little detail, but I do go over everything you do need to create your campaign.
I do have a comprehensive 3-hour course that covers Facebook Ads in great detail, so make sure to check it out.
