With over one billion users, Facebook is a great opportunity for any business that wants to use it as a sales or advertising tool. But the question that many people ask is, can I also generate income with this social network, even if I do not have a company? Is there any way to start making money with a Facebook page?
Today I will teach you how to earn money with your own Facebook page through 5 different methods that will allow you to start generating income easily.
Requirements to monetize a Facebook page:
The first mandatory requirement is to obviously have a Facebook page. Several readers have asked me if their personal profiles of Facebook can also earn money. And the answer is yes. But it is much more difficult to monetize a personal profile than a Facebook page because the personal profile is not specific. In your Facebook profile you can have friends with totally different interests, some will like techno music, and others rock or pop. Some will have pets, and others will not because they do not like animals. Instead a Facebook page is much more specific because in it fans have a common interest. If you make a page about rock music, only lovers of good rock will click on “Like”. If your page is targeted at pet owners, only those with a dog, cat, or budgie will become fans of it. So the first thing to keep in mind is that you should have your own Facebook page. Forget about using your personal profile to make money with this social network.
How to earn money with a Facebook page?
Have you already created your own Facebook page and have some fans? Then I will teach you the 5 different methods you can use to make money with it.
1. Earn money on Facebook with mentions
If you have a good number of fans who follow the publications of your Facebook page, you can earn money by mentioning or promoting companies, businesses, or anyone who wants to make themselves known. Many small businesses, brands or even entrepreneurs do not have a presence on Facebook or, if they have their own page, they want to be more known among users. That’s why they are willing to pay pages with a good number of fans to be mentioned in a Facebook publication (along with some photo) to attract customers or increase the number of visits to their web pages. To get this kind of collaboration, it is best to search on Facebook or Google for companies interested in your page, list the most relevant, and contact them to reach an economic agreement in exchange for your publication. But beware: You must do it with companies or brands related to the theme or interests of your Facebook page. If you have a page dedicated to cell phones, it does not make any sense to mention a food company, for example. Ideally, contact brands that sell accessories or products related to mobile phones.
2. Sell your own products
One of the easiest ways to make money with a Facebook page is by selling your own digital products. As ebooks or guides, or articles that can be downloaded immediately as online courses that you have created, music in mp3 …To sell them, you will only need to upload those files to a storage platform – like Mega – and publish an attractive photo of your product on Facebook with a short description and the link to make the payment. It is best to publish one of these promotional posts for every ten normal posts. Because if you repeat them very often on your Facebook page, your fans will feel that you are saturating them with publicity.
3. Promote affiliate products on your page
Do not have any products of your own? Then sell other people’s items and get a commission for every sale you make. This is what is called “affiliate marketing”. This method works exactly like the previous one, except that instead of adding a link to your products, you will have to publish the affiliate link provided by the company in which you register. There are many companies that have affiliate programs: Clickbank, Amazon, Apple, Zalando, Asos … Publish your affiliate link and, every time someone clicks on that link and buys the product, you’ll get a commission on the total sale.
4. Send traffic to your blog with AdSense ads
If you are also one of those who has a small corner on the Internet where you frequently post posts, you can redirect your Facebook fans to him to earn money.All you have to do in this method is to place some AdSense ads on your blog. So, when your fans visit your page, they will see those ads and you will earn money too. On your Facebook page all you have to do is publish the links to each new article that you write with an attractive description so that they click on that link, go to your blog, and see your ads. Do not think this is a silly thing, the Viralnova.com website uses this method and in a few months got millions of hits a day and generate thousands of dollars each month with AdSense ads.
5. Sell your own Facebook page
Every day more people are creating Facebook pages with a specific theme, publishing different content in them to attract fans, and then selling them when they have reached a large number of followers. There are many people who buy Facebook pages already created with fans for their small business or professional brand. It is true that this method requires some patience and know well how to manage this social network. But if you can create a good Facebook page, you can make this a profession with good income. To give you a better idea Facebook pages are usually sold with prices between $ 150 and up to $ 3 000 depending on the number of fans.
