Associate Programs Newsletter #505
This month Facebook made changes to how Fan Pages work. It was a major step forward that gives affiliate marketers much more control over what people do when they “Like” a page.
Why is that important you ask? It means that Facebook has opened a door that previously only programmers could walk through.
Now is the time to jump on to Facebook and leverage its power!
1. The New Rules of Facebook Marketing
2. Thought for Today – Leverage
3. Cool Site – CobraApps
4. My Week – Facebooked
1) The New Rules of Facebook Marketing
Facebook is downgrading FBML and bringing Apps to Fan Pages. What does that mean for you? Opportunity! You now have the full power of Facebook programming at your fingertips and you don't need to be a programmer to use it.
Discover what the changes are and how you can take them to turn them into income streams. Find out what iFrame apps are and why they are so much more powerful than the old FBML tabs.
2) Thought for Today – Leverage
“The key to competing and surviving against Wal-Mart is to focus your business into a niche or pocket where you can leverage your strengths in the local marketplace.” – Michael Bergdahl.
3) Cool Tool – AppCobra
AppCobra is specifically designed to let you create iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch based applications. Run at full screen, use a range of iPad features, including geolocation, acceleration, swiping, and much more. Test your apps almost instantly on your own iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.
4) My Week – Facebooked
I spent a lot of time over this past week reading through the new Facebook apps documentation, building my first app and my first app for a Fan Page, talking with friends who are pushing the boundaries of the changes and just getting a feel for what I can do.
Do I understand programming? No, but I do now know what to cut and paste to achieve a result. This is worth noting. You don't need to learn programing to use it. You'd be amazed at what you can achieve through “change then test then undo”.
I will never understand how to program but I have learned the basic code and I know HTML which helps me to work my way forward.

Anyway, have a relaxing week!
Next week, I'll tell you more about how I'm taking advantage of the recent changes at Facebook.
