#152: How to Create Affiliate Revenue by Amplifying Content on Facebook with Deacon Hayes 1

On today’s episode of The Art of Paid Traffic, I’m joined by Deacon Hayes from talking all about how he generates affiliate income by using Facebook ads to amplify helpful content on his website. We dive into all of his strategies and specifically we break down a recent campaign where he spent $8,500 on Facebook ads and did $21K in revenue. One thing I want you to really listen for today is how Deacon’s strategy is centered on value-first, and amplifying that value through Facebook ads. Deacon approaches his campaigns with good intentions and isn’t scammy, which is why I wanted to bring him on the podcast to show others one way to do affiliate marketing the right way. Also, I’d love to hear from you.
