Facebook is an extremely popular social networking site that used every day by millions of people. If you have a business you want to promote or you want to make money using advertising then Facebook is a great place to start. Here are some of the ways you can make money from Facebook:
If you have a product to sell or a service to promote you can set up a Facebook page for your business. Give it a name, but make sure nobody else has the same name. Write an ‘about’ section and tell people about yourself and how you set up the business. Pick some high-quality photographs and/or create a logo for your brand. Add a button which directs readers to your website or landing page, or the contact details of your physical premises.
Then, start posting small blogs which get people interested in your product. Make sure you post regularly and at the beginning more than once a day. Use the Facebook messaging feature to allow your customers to contact you if they have any questions and make sure you answer them as quickly as possible. Publish your page and it will then be read by people browsing from their PC’s, tablets and mobile phones.
Facebook also has an ‘insights’ page which will help you to understand how many people are looking at your posts and other analytics. Bit by bit you should be able to build up your business and make profits with the help of your Facebook business page.
You can use Facebook ads to earn money using an affiliate programme. Firstly, you need to open the Ads Manager Wall and fill out the form. Next, you choose what you want to promote. For example a landing page, your blog or a fan page you have built up. After that, you need to create an advertisement using some text and an image and then pick your target audience. For example, if you want to promote fitness products then your target audience might be between 18 and 35 in that category. There are plenty of ways you can target an audience and make sure that you are attracting readers that are interested in buying what you have to sell. Once a person clicks on your advert you make a small profit and obviously if they buy from you then that’s even better. The more clicks you get the more money you make.
If you find you have a lot of interest on your site, but people aren’t purchasing you could try ad retargeting. This basically gives you a second chance to persuade people who have shown interest to buy. Basically, you add a cookie to your website and this will follow your reader to their Facebook page and show your original ad, or another one to them again. If you want to know more about ad retargeting have a look at the blog by Jason Parks on the Acquisto website.
If you have adverts on your site and you need a method of drawing people to your site, write a blog. You post a blog on your Facebook site and then use affiliate advertising to gain clicks which will generate income. You’ll know if your blog is successful by the number of Facebook likes it generates.
If you have a large number of followers you can make money by asking websites to sponsor you to promote their products. They place a click-through ad on your Facebook page and they’ll pay you a set rate. If you want to do this you should normally have around 1,000 visitors and you should post 2 or 3 times a day.
If you’re good at something and you want to pass on your knowledge you can set up a Facebook group and offer paid coaching. It can be about anything you know a lot about such as affiliate marketing, dog grooming or how to make money blogging. It’s got to be something people want to know about and are happy to pay to receive your wisdom.
If you create your own products such as soap or jewellery you can use your Facebook page to advertise them. If you can price your product so that you still make a profit after paying for the ads, you’ll be able to generate some cash.
Put a quiz on your Facebook page. It’s called Custom based Affiliate Marketing and you can make money out of it if you have enough visitors. First of all, you need to build a quiz about the product you are promoting. There are various quiz generators around on the internet which will enable you to do this. Keep the quiz short, ask 5 or 6 questions and give 3 or 4 results. People love doing quizzes and it’s a good way to get traffic to your page and readers clicking on your affiliate marketing ads.
