Here is a comprehensive guide, teaching you everything you need to know.
Learning How to Make Money On Facebook
The vast number of Facebook users is both a blessing and a curse.
It could be a blessing if you have a larger audience and make more money.
However, it could also be a curse if too many people are trying to make money.
If you want to make money using Facebook, you must stand out from your competition.
Whichever method you choose, make sure you give it your best.
Rise above the crowd.
Now, let’s get into it.
Make Money With Facebook As An Influencer
The first way to make money on Facebook is by being an influencer.
In simple terms, a social media influencer is someone who has authority in a particular niche.
Therefore, they have a large following, comprised of people interested in (Insert Niche/ Hobby here)
For instance, Kylie Jenner is a common name in the social media space.
She has over 28 million followers on her Facebook page and authority in the beauty niche.
But you don’t need millions of followers to become an influencer on Facebook.
Going by Business Insider Intelligence statistics, the influencer marketing industry speculates to be worth about $15 billion by 2022.
And Facebook is the second-best platform for influencer marketing.
Not all businesses can afford celebrities and mega-influencers.
According to Mediakix, influencers fall under six different categories.
Take a look at the screenshot below for a better explanation of who falls under these six categories.
As you can see below, there is a chance for you, even with only 1000 followers.
So, how do you become a Facebook influencer and start making money?
Let’s find out.
1) Pick a Niche
Which subject is your passion?
Your niche could be anything from golfing to video games and everything in between.
The purpose of choosing a niche is so that you can attract a specific target audience.
Marketers are searching for influencers who have a narrowed down and targeted audience.
They want to know that you can get their product in front of the right people.
Also, specializing makes it easy for you to create content.
You have to put in a lot of effort to come up with content ideas.
However, once you start creating content consistently, the ideas will start flowing.
I’d highly recommend purchasing a whiteboard so you can write down these ideas.
Furthermore, a whiteboard calendar is essential for your content strategy.
I’ll be discussing this in a few minutes, so continue reading.
2) Create Your Facebook Profile And Make Money
Having a business page is better than having a personal account for your influencing.
Personal accounts can only have a maximum of 5,000 friends.
Go to Create Page on Facebook, then follow the instructions.
The name of the page should be that of your brand—most influencers use their names.
Add a description and pictures that reflect your brand.
Be creative and let your authenticity show within your Facebook business page.
3) Create Content for Your Audience
Understand who your target audience is, what kind of content they would like, and get to work.
Sometimes, it takes trial and error to get it right.
Come up with a content strategy.
Think of this as your work schedule for the week.
As you post more and attract followers, you will realize the kind of content that they love.
Some influencers focus solely on content that revolves around their niche.
For instance, Skinnytaste (Pictured below) is a food blogger, and most of the content on her page is about food.
However, others will mix this up with content about their personal lives. It is all up to you.
4) Consistency Is Key To Making Money With Facebook
Being consistent cannot be emphasized enough.
You won’t attract a broad audience by posting once in two months.
When you are building your page, you need to publish content regularly.
It helps to keep you in front of your audience, so you are always on their minds.
Even better, set specific days of the week for posting.
On top of that, remember to interact with your audience.
Like and reply to their comments.
Answer any questions they might have and nurture that relationship.
5) Partner with Brands
With a complete profile, content on your page, and a good number of followers, you’ll be ready to start making money.
First, put your business email somewhere in your bio and clarify that you are open for collaborations.
Additionally, you can always reach out to the brands yourself.
The worst they can say is, “no.”
Find businesses in your niche and ask if they would love to partner with you.
6) Facebook Video Ads
Facebook Video Ads are another standard method of making money on Facebook.
If you follow a lot of pages, you’ve noticed that many of them create videos.
These could be funny videos, DIYs, etc.
The in-stream ad feature allows you to include ads in your videos.
And you earn revenue in exchange.
You can enable the ads for all your videos or specific ones.
How do you incorporate in-stream ads in your videos?
Through Creator Studio.
It has all the necessary tools for creating and monetizing your content on Facebook as well as Instagram.
Creator Studio is available to anyone who has a page.
Therefore, all you need is a page and content.
However, there are some eligibility requirements that you have to meet.
- It would be best if you were 18+ years old.
- The in-stream ad feature must be available in your country.
- A minimum of at least 10,000 followers
- You have to comply with the Partner Monetization Policies.
- At least 30,000 one minute views within the last 60 days
- Furthermore, the videos should not be less than three minutes long.
If you are sure that you meet all these requirements, the next step is to upload videos.
Go to Creator Studio and upload your video, then insert ads.
You can either choose the ad placements manually or opt for automatic arrangements.
Once you’ve finished, upload your video.
As already mentioned, Facebook has a significant amount of daily users.
If you have a page and your content is outstanding, you can get many loyal fans.
Furthermore, the paid subscription feature allows your super fans to become paying supporters.
In exchange, you offer them exclusive content.
This method of making money on Facebook is ideal for pages with a huge, active following.
Unfortunately, you can only access it by invitation.
Dude Dad is a favorite page for many Facebook users.
They have almost 2 million followers. Notice the “Become a Supporter” button.
Their supporters get a supporter badge, discounts on merchandise, exclusive content, live videos, and a supporter group membership.
All this for only $5 a month.
You can do affiliate marketing on pretty much any online platform.
All that matters is that you convince people to click on your links and make a purchase.
Therefore, Facebook is no different.
Here is how you go about it.
1) Create a Facebook Group or Business Page
Your personal Facebook account could work too, but all your virtual friends will soon unfriend you.
Hence, it is in everyone’s best interest that you have a group dedicated to your business.
This way, only interested people will follow you.
Additionally, you’ll be building a personal brand where you’ll connect with people and build a relationship.
2) Create Content and Engage Your Audience
You won’t gain followers by posting endless links.
However, start by posting engaging content that will attract an audience of like-minded people.
First, get to know your audience and give them a chance to know you.
Interact with them and build trust.
Another thing, position yourself as an expert so they will be open to taking buying suggestions from you.
Let your promotional posts make up a small percentage (ideally, less than 30%) of your content.
3) Find Products
Utilize affiliate programs.
Right now, the best plan would be Amazon Associates.
Although ClickBank is a popular and fantastic affiliate program, the links are not allowed on Facebook.
To be successful with Facebook affiliate marketing, you might have to reach out to the brands yourself.
The rules concerning affiliate programs are too strict.
Here is an example of Candace Bure promoting a skincare product in a Live video.
Notice the link.
Make Money With Facebook Subscription Groups
Lastly, you can make money with Facebook using subscription groups.
What does this entail?
You create a Facebook group, and people have to pay to join.
As you can imagine, this is not easy to do.
The offers have to be irresistible if you want to convince people to join.
To pull this off, you need a loyal fanbase that is already conversant with your work.
If you believe that making money with Facebook is for you, here is a training course (Course coming soon) to guide you through all the steps.
There’s nothing wrong with sharing life updates and memes with family on Facebook.
But while at it, why not make some money?
Earning an income with Facebook is quite simple.
Most people already know how to use it (and have an account). All you have to do is monetize it, and you’re good to go.
Make Money With Facebook Closing Thoughts
As you can see, there are quite a few ways to make money with Facebook.
However, these are the best and most profitable ways to make money utilizing this social media platform.
One of the things I like the most about Facebook is that it costs practically $0 to get started.
Keep in mind; you’ll need to have a high speed internet connection and a decent microphone and webcam.
Besides that, there aren’t many other things you’ll need other than a detailed Facebook training course.
