With Facebook account only, you can start affiliate marketing business in Nigeria and make like N300, 000 plus per month. But you need to make sure your Facebook’s audiences (friends and followers) are highly stick with you (or understand your language). Hence, that is why I suggested earlier that for one to start affiliate marketing and become successful in it, he/she need a knowledge of copywriting and digital marketing.

Please note that it is not necessary to learn copywriting and digital marketing as an aspiring affiliate marker. In fact, you can hire someone that is specialized in them to render these services to you. But, it is very, very important (we can’t say it is an added advantage) to learn copywriting and digital marketing first before you start affiliate marketing.
