I would never direct link to an affiliate product ever you should direct link to your squeeze page or email opt-in form and collect the leads first you can always sell to them later.

By direct linking to an affiliate product you are losing all the leads that you can potentially have and your paying for it with no guarantee that anyone is going to buy the affiliate product that you are promoting.

Build your list and your business first not someone else's business.

My tip of the day:)

The simple answer is YES you can do it and it's not spamming or violating facebook rules.

I know a guy here in South Africa who's making a killing with amazon products and facebook ads, I asked him about the RIO and he said it has a good RIO (return on investment). He showed me a screenshot on his amazon dashboard and he's making thousands of dollars every month.

But he doesn't send the traffic straight to amazon, he creates reviews on his blog and send the facebook traffic to his blog posts/reviews. He said the reviews that bring him good revenue are the ones that have videos. The best part is that most of his reviews are now ranking well on Google, so this is a really good long term strategy.

Ranking on Google was not his plan and now he's no longer spending a lot on FB ads, he's relying on Google to send him traffic.

I also use a similar strategy, the only difference is that I don't pay for ads, I managed to build a solid following on social media sites and I just create a post on different social sites and BAM, money starts rolling in. Most of my reviews also rank well on Google.

However, reviews are not my main focus. I use my blog to build an email list, sell my products and promote affiliate products as well.

What you're trying to do does work and it's even better as a long term business if you create a blog. Hope that helps.

I agree with what others have said about creating a review site. You can pre-sell much better with a review site. You are adding your own spin on the product. You can give your opinion of the positives of the product, give a negative if you have one so that you can be perceived as partial.

I would also add some key reviews from Amazon towards the end of your article. Add four of five reviews from Amazon, showing why other people like the product too. Try to be partial and if their is a negative opinion include that so you appear partial. Don't add the Amazon review verbatim. Instead paraphrase.

I would also start building a list so that you can market to your followers. You will increase your ROI this way.
To sell or promote you must earn the customers trust. You can do this much better by adding a review site instead of direct linking. Then by having an email list and emailing your subscribers you will further gain their trust which will make them more likely to buy through your link.
