If the affiliate program which you are using doesn’t offer any coupon code or you embed coupon code directly into a link, you can skip the coupon part. For example, I can directly offer following the link, which offers $50 off without any coupon code on Dreamhost.

Click on next and now the creative part comes in, you need to add a catchy offer headline in 90 characters along with an image. Make sure to use an image which can bring maximum interaction and use clickable offer lines. Here is the final screenshot of created offer:

Set budget:

If you know about Facebook edge rank, by default any status update you post on Fan page, doesn’t reach to all and that’s where Facebook come with sponsored stories, where you set a budget to make your status update or offer reachable to more Facebook users.

You can also publish your offer without spending any money, i.e., with 0 budget, but if you are promoting something irresistible, make sure you start with a minimum budget of $10. When you are setting your budget for the Facebook offer, you can also see the estimated number of reach. Here is a screenshot for the same:

    Altough one can offer an offer in feed itself. But, its a bit professional thing from Fb. to E-Commerce pages.

  7. This option is really useful, well i am also not able to see this option in my Facebook Page is there anything i have to do to enable it up.

  8. I have today seen you posting an offer of HostGator on your fan page and felt curious to know about how to really post such an offer, and have finally landed on this post. Thanks for this great guide Harsh. I have just posted an offer on my fan page :).

  9. I don’t see that offer either. May be the feature is not available for all pages by now, or may be facebook is offering this new feature only to certain pages with some minimum age or number of fans.

    There have been a lot of facebook features that were not instantly activated for all facebook users, but they became available after some time. I guess we should wait and see what happens.

  10. I have two facebook fan pages. One having 50 k+ fans and the other having 15 K+ fans. Both the pages have offer button.My question to you is : how do i get the affiliate link to post on the page. Let us say, I want affiliate link for a particular e-Commerce website like Amazon. Do I have to approach them for this? And then post it using the method posted by you? And the offer post goes down when a post is made. What happens to the ad then when it goes down the page??
    2. I have seen some ads posted on the right hand side of the page under “your ad here” how to post an ad there? Would like to know more about it. Thanks

      1. Thank you so much for this help.

        Can you tell me how to use Facebook advertising? Have you written any article on that? I need help on this. So please help me out. Thanks
