For many readers who have written to us asking for information on how to earn income online, we have shared several ways to do it on a blog or website and using a Twitter account.
This latter option is not a money mine, but it allows the more entrepreneurial to earn income on a secondary basis without having a website. Something similar can be done with Facebook.
The pages of Facebook or Fan Pages have a huge potential to make money.
One of these pages with thousands of fans, is a true treasure that can be exploited.
Facebook is a social network that allows and encourages users to share content of interest with friends, but the interest and what makes it possible to run the service, is to show advertising to earn income, but of course not users.
However it is possible to earn income by properly managing a Facebook fan page, but it takes a lot of interest, perseverance and dedication, like any real-life project.
How can you earn money with Facebook
Many methods of making money are promoted in the network, just by clicking on the “I like” buttons.
This method is fast, but we have to become full time slaves to always get much less than $ 100 a month.
Anyone who wishes to do so can use the Fanslave service.
In this article we only deal with ways to make money by making a Fan Page of ours popular, which can make us earn enough money.
It is the method employed by many entrepreneurs, who have created real mini-businesses associated with Facebook.
Requirements to earn money on Facebook
- The first requirement is to create a Facebook page also called “Fan Page”.
- For that it is necessary to have a Facebook account and a profile page also called a biography.
- With Fan Page or Fan Pages it is relatively easy to get fans or followers.
- Fans are not friends, users become fans or followers by clicking on the Like button on one of these pages.
- From that moment a part of them will come our publications.
- It is necessary to create our page or pages (they can be several) with a topic focused on a certain sector related to the subject that we are going to share in her.
- It is also possible to convert a profile page to Fan Page.
- After that we must begin to publish and share attractive things for a reasonable amount of time before marketing it.
All Ways to Make Money with a Fan Page
There are thousands of different ways to earn revenue with a fan page.
We only suggest below the most commonly used methods, but it depends on each person, the content that he shares, his followers and the experience that he acquires over time.
1- Make money on Facebook by selling products
One of the simplest ways to make money, which does not require much knowledge or strategy, is to sell our own products.
They can be any digital product like electronic books (eBooks, manuals, tutorials, etc.), besides services of all type.
We just need to upload an appealing image with a description and links for payment by PayPal.
You need to be very careful because the followers will not like to be saturated with advertising.
Ten normal posts are considered tolerable by a promotional one.
2- Make money on Facebook with mentions
Many small businesses or businesses do not have a presence on Facebook and in that case they appreciate and pay for mention in popular pages.
It is a secondary option for additional income.
3- Make money on Facebook by promoting affiliate products
One of the methods that allows for easy income, is using affiliate platforms and sharing post with links to products that may be of interest to our followers.
For that there are several companies in the network.
You just need to register on one of their sites and choose a product that may be relevant to your followers.
They will give you a code that will link to your affiliate ID on it.
When a person clicks on the link and buys a product or service, they will be paid a commission.
Then create posts on your Fan Page with your affiliate link.
Find a product on one of the affiliate platforms that is related to what you publish and fit your audience.
Create a post with the link.
Monitor the reaction of your followers and see how many I like in the first few minutes or hours, the perfect index will know you over time according to the number of followers.
Wait for the result of the conversions (people who click on the links), you can know it with the statistics tool of Facebook Insights.
If the result is good continuous with the product, but look for something different.
Success with this system depends on many factors but mainly two: The number of followers and the product that fits, also influences the attractiveness of the post.
There are different types of affiliate programs and each has a different system.
The most popular are:
i)- Payment per conversion (% of the sale of a product).
ii)- Pay per click (for the number of visitors referred).
iii)- Payment by Form (to complete a form at the destination site).
Which affiliate platform to choose?
Currently there are thousands of affiliate services that serve as links between the companies that offer the products and those that publish on the internet.
Some work only with regional scope, for example for the audience of Spain, Mexico or other countries.
Read which are the best companies and affiliate services available for our area.
4- Earn money on Facebook by sending visitors to an AdSense blog
This method consists of actively posting content, mainly images with links to direct fans to a blog or website that has ads from AdSense or another advertising company.
Of course we have to create this blog, if we do not already have it.
If you are not going to invest in a hosting (storage service) the only option is to create a blog on Blogger.
It does not work so fast, but it works.
It is necessary to create the blog and Facebook page and publish appealing content in the two, link them and only after a few months request Google AdSense service.
The links of the blog entries we share on Facebook should encourage fans to click on the image that will send them to the blog.
It takes patience, effort and perseverance, but it is totally feasible.
It seems silly method, but it is the one employed by many famous famous blogs. Monthly earnings are hundreds of thousands of dollars with AdSense.
All made by one person and two working part time.
It’s just an isolated case, but I always mention it as an example of what can be achieved on the internet with ideas, tenacity and a little luck. With the same system of Viralnova currently work tens of thousands of blogs and internet websites and are perfectly profitable.
5- Make money by selling a Facebook page
The last option is to create pages to sell them, that task is dedicated several people and is a very profitable business.
A whole market has been created around the Fan Page and there are hundreds of people willing to buy one for a local business.
Scope of posts on Facebook
In Facebook the posts come to our followers in a totally different way than in Twitter and that a blog or website.
In a blog or website the readers see completely the content of the post that we publish.
On Twitter the tweet reach all our followers, but quickly disappear from the timeline of them, more so if they follow several accounts.
In Facebook the posts only reach a part of our followers, to which Facebook decides, the rest completely ignores that we have published something new.
The proportion of people to whom our post arrive is called “reach”.
It is different according to the content that is shared and the initial interaction it causes. In practice, more posts are available with images.
Currently the average reach is 8%, so if your fan page has 1000 followers, Facebook will send only 80 people a new post.
