As affiliate marketers, we all encounter similar challenges in our online business on a daily basis.
Maybe you’re working on launching your next campaign which could result in your next BIGGEST milestone in affiliate commissions…
It could be crafting your email copies, building an affiliate marketing funnel, writing a blog post, carrying out an SEO campaign, shooting a YouTube video, running a Facebook ad campaign, Google ads, Solo ads and cooking up of few affiliate hooks for (profile and group) updates.
You’ll definitely run into something where you begin to wonder like “am I really doing this right”
I know how it feels – after all YOUR efforts of going through courses, coaching sessions, reading books and blogs, watching long video tutorials just to stay on top of your affiliate game.
And all you hear is crick crick crick. Damn!
Tactics, Strategies and traffic sources are constantly changing and it takes a lot to keep up with all these.
How on earth could one person keep up with so many things?
I have to say that having great success in affiliate marketing wouldn’t be that possible if you do not:
- Serve ‘n’
- Add value to the lives of others
In any way possible!
4 GIANT Steps That Changed My Affiliate Business. (& Life)
- 1-minute read
- Never buy any aff. marketing courses without reading
- No B.S. No upsell!
Even the best of us sometimes run into challenges that we just don’t have the needed knowledge or experience to solve them on our own.
Can you remember the saying that goes: “two heads are better than one?”
The solution is joining an online marketing community. I mean affiliate marketing groups on Facebook.
Why Need Facebook Groups For Affiliate Marketing?
Whether you outsource most of your affiliate tasks to team members or are flying solo on your journey, it can be comforting to know you’re not alone.
However, you can try doing it all on your own – but Facebook groups offer a supportive and helpful community so you really do not have to.
Affiliate marketing groups on Facebook are places where you can get answers to those burning questions from a trusted group of affiliate marketing experts and individuals who’ve been through IT before.
Not only that – you can also build friendships with other people facing the same struggles as you, give or seek recommendations for products and tools, and even spend some time mutually promoting each other’s work.
Not forgetting you can also leverage affiliate marketing Facebook groups in building and growing your personal brand and reputation as an affiliate marketer.
Nothing like the feeling of belonging to a community of like-minded folks, right?
Plus, when you do try something risky and it doesn’t go as planned… who can you turn to?
Maybe your kids…?
Sorry to say but, NO!
Your community is there for you – and I guarantee the members always have similar stories to share.
Affiliate marketing Facebook groups provide an excellent source of knowledge and practical advice for affiliates. But how many times have you joined an affiliate marketing‐related group, only to have your news feed spammed with a post like this:
That’s why the groups you belong to on social media are somehow critical to your affiliate marketing success.
Choosing The Best Affiliate Marketing Groups On Facebook
A lot of Facebook groups for affiliate marketers seem to be nothing more than billboards for low‐quality service offers and have no real activity from members.
The truth be told…
The only challenge is that there are a ton of affiliate marketing Facebook groups out there. With so many to choose from (there are literally more than 600 million Facebook groups).
How can you decide which ones to join?
That’s where I’m going to help you in deciding.
When not filtered by topic, there are over 200 million groups on Facebook right now. Even when you narrow it down to marketing, there are tons to consider.
How can you choose which ones are worth joining?
Granted, joining a Facebook group isn’t exactly a big commitment. If you’re not happy in the group or aren’t getting value out of it – you can always leave.
In fact, group admins will not even be notified if you leave the group (the last time I checked!).
However, you can save yourself some time and energy by vetting groups before you join.
So, I only included affiliate marketing‐related groups that have:
- Strict rules, mission, and expectations
- A significant number of members
- High level of community engagement
- No‐spam policy
- No sort of hidden agenda (pitchy) but to serve.
So, for this post, I vetted over 43 Facebook affiliate marketing groups and hand‐picked the most engaging and helpful ones for affiliate marketers to join. Which I’m also a part of.
I’ve checked out almost every related group on Facebook and have narrowed them down to the top 6 best ones I think are worth looking into.
However, there might still be room for more in the future.
Lets dive in:

This is one of the few ‘little’ affiliate SEO Facebook groups I belong where you can ask questions, share thoughts, ideas and tell your own story on how well and bad your money sites are doing.
Whenever you drop an SEO or affiliate site building related questions – you’ll surely get an answer to what you need clarifications on.
On the announcement section you’ll find only 3 posts by Ben:
The first one is about a quick step-by-step outline on starting a niche site from scratch.

Third, a post is on how he (Ben Adler) shared the exact method that helped him rank #1 on Google for one of his Amazon affiliate websites. Helpful!

Affiliate Profits Mastermind happens to be one of the few fast-rising affiliate marketing groups I belong to on Facebook – yet filled with great value and support.
Chris does all he can to keep the group away from spammers – by manually approving posts with the help of his group moderators. The strict anti-spam policy makes this group a friendly environment for affiliate marketers.

Frequently Asked Facebook Group Questions
Can I Do Affiliate Marketing On Facebook?
Yes, you can do affiliate marketing on Facebook and make good money off the platform. Most great affiliates I know utilize Facebook in several ways to market their affiliate products and make money on autopilot.
Let’s take a look at some ways to do this:
- Using Facebook Ads
You might be familiar with this already. The ideal method is running paid FB Ads to your landing page (build list and rapport) then directing them to the affiliate offer.
- Using Facebook Groups
This is in two ways:
#1: Providing value in related Facebook groups that aren’t yours and attracting customers.
#2: Creating your own Facebook group and monetizing it.
Can I Do Amazon Affiliate Marketing On Facebook?
The best and recommended way to make money as an Amazon affiliate is by creating a niche website and publishing helpful content to help people looking for a solution or recommendation related to your chosen niche.
Ben Adler’s Facebook group is a good place to connect with folks doing this. And luckily for you, he has units teaching you how to start this, for free.
Are Affiliate Links Allowed In Facebook Groups?
You cannot promote or drop your affiliate links in Facebook groups that aren’t yours. That is a self-promotional and spammy act. You are going to be banned and thrown out of the Facebook group.
That is why I didn’t include such unmoderated groups in this list of affiliate groups.
But hey, you are free to promote your affiliate offers in your own group. But it SHOULDN’T be abused as members can easily spot it when you’re desperate.
Just use the hook, story, and offer method when trying to promote your offers.
Can I Create My Own Facebook Group?
Why not? You can create your own private/closed group and monetize it by constantly providing value and promoting your offers in a non-salesy manner. Or just create it to help like-minded folks and increase your authority.
Build rapport, interact, engage, and help your members at all times, and in return, they would be willing glad to buy anything you recommend or even future offers.
Is Affiliate Marketing Worth Doing?
I might sound uncool here, but affiliate marketing isn’t for everyone! However, it could be a great means to earn side fulltime income online when you are always in the implementation mode and paying attention to what works.
It has opened so many opportunities for me over the past year alone, so it is totally worth doing!
Although it might sound a little complicated to newbies to grasp the whole concept, it sure gets easy and clearer once you start taking ACTION piece-by-piece and most importantly connecting with those who have had success in this space over the years.
The Ball is in Your Court!
Whichever of the groups you choose to join, what matters the most is the value you get out of it!
This shortlists of affiliate marketing groups were put together with the aim of helping you save time you might have been spending sifting through hundreds of low-quality spammy Facebook groups.
For sure, I know that the above list isn’t an exhaustive one – because there are more groups that may attract your attention and helps you in your affiliate marketing hustle.
Please do share them in the comments and let me know.
I will keep on updating this list once I discover great ones with a high level of engagement, number of users and other factors – as there are likely some amazing communities that fell off my radar.
Do not hesitate to suggest your favorite Facebook affiliate marketing groups and what you expect from a perfect affiliate group.
