You can promote a product to your friends and many others simply by posting quality content that is intended to promote the products of which you are trying to sell.

2. Facebook page affiliate marketing
This is a great Way to promote your affiliate products in a more professional manner.

First you have to create a page and invite people to like the page, the page must be about the type of product you want to be promoting, for example, if you want to promote t-shirt or clothes, then your page has to be about fashion.
After inviting your friends to like the page, start creating compelling Contents that attracts comments and engagements, make sure you’re doing this right, after doing this for some time, notify your friends to start inviting other people to like the page.
When you have enough likes on the page,
you can then start to promote your affiliate products, do this with caution, you don’t want to scare your audience away, don’t be too pushy, provide them something that is helpful and you wont have to beg them to buy It.
Always remember, whatever Content you’re creating for your page must be related to the niche you chose.
3. Facebook groups affiliate marketing
This is another great way to make sales for your affiliate products, you can either create your own Facebook group and invite members, or you can also do this on other peoples groups, but whenever you’re doing this on others group, you must follow rules, if not, they’ll report your account and you may have it closed down.
