How to Make Money from Facebook in 7 Smart Ways in 2020

You must be spending a significant amount of time on social media. The purpose must be to connect with people, to provide and receive updates about your friends or family, or out of sheer habit.

Often, you must have thought that the time that you waste on social media could be put to better use. Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually make money through Facebook?

You can actually turn this ‘waste’ of time into ‘investment’ of time if you use Facebook to generate an income.

There are many ways to earn money online from facebook.

One of the ways is to sell a certain number of likes with a price tag.

You can get paid for selling facebook page likes. But this way you will not always earn the same amount as it is shown here. I have seen people selling 1000 likes in Rs.50. Your earning depends on the demography you are targeting and type of client you can get.

For example, I just saw this ad on facebook,

There are certainly other ways to make more money on facebook. Although some of them require initial investment of time or money, but the return can be worth it.

I have recorded a video on 10 best ways on how to earn money from Facebook

#1. Earn money through facebook page

A facebook page has the potential to earn as much as a billion. The Indian startup Inshort was first started as a facebook page which later became a startup for sharing any news article in 60 words.

To earn money from a facebook fan page, first you must create one. And then follow this small guide.

How to earn money from facebook page

Step-1: Find a niche

You must be clear from day one that you have to make money from your fb page. For that, you must know the potential of a niche which will help you to earn money and your interest in the topic.

For example, an affiliate marketing fan page will generate a decent earning from websites like amazon.

Earning from a facebook page is not a fortnight’s work. It is also important that you must have basic knowledge about the field so that you can create content for your fans and inspire other people to like your page.

Step-2: Publish content on your facebook page

Start sharing content. Your content should be such that people read/watch and share.

Facebook pages are said to have a low organic reach and people often forget you if you are not consistent.

You must have a pre-written pool of content. Also, you should schedule your posts so that if you are busy somewhere, your page will still keep running.

You can schedule your social media posts with apps like Buffer and HootSuite.

Step-3: Build a relationship

In marketing,relationship building is indispensable. You will get your first payment from collaborative promotions or as sponsored posts. Sponsored post means that you get paid to write (and post) about a brand, on your fb page.

Or, you can make money by posting links of other brands.

Step-4: Make more money

If you have a decent fan base and have developed a name in the town, you can apply to the affiliate programs to earn more money. Few famous affiliate providers are clickbank, cj, shareasale, amazon etc.

#2. Sell products on Facebook to make money

You can use facebook’s make an offer feature to earn money by selling products.

facebook make an offer

Put the link of your product in the link box and give a coupon code to offer a discount on the product.

You can also use an affiliate link from any e-commerce site and attach a coupon code (not necessary if the company does not offer a discount). Your fans will buy the product from your link and you will earn money through the affiliate.

You can put the paid links on facebook from any of the websites, Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, or whichever provides a commission on their earning.

Earn more on offers by promoting on facebook:

  • Give an attractive offer like 10-15% discount or buy one get one free. Your offer should be competitive or better than your competitors.
  • Promote this offer with facebook paid ads.
  • Or, involve influential facebook pages or people to promote your offer.

#3. Freelance facebook marketer earns well

You can earn $50 per hour by becoming a freelance facebook marketer.

The skills required to become a freelance facebook marketer are:

  • Analyse facebook stats. You must be able to predict with data analysis that, which type of posts work better on which day of the week. Marketing can become successful only if we are able to measure the stats. Like google has their analytics for websites, facebook has its own analytics for pages.
  • Ability to make marketing strategies and decisions. A marketing campaign cannot be successful without a strategic planning. An effective marketer knows what will be the results of a campaign at the end of the month.
  • Ability to create a facebook friendly content. For example, posts with 40 characters on facebook get 86% more engagement. You must know which type of content works better in a situation.

Other ways to make money on facebook

#4. Become an influencer

You can also earn money becoming an influencer with your normal profile. If posts on your facebook wall get decent likes and comments, becoming an influencer is a good way to earn money.

Also if you have a fan following and you interact with them through your personal profile, then you can make money by signing up through an influencer account on blogmint.com or fromote.com to start earning.

After signing up, you will be required to fill a form where you will enter your profile information and you can fix price as an influencer. For example, you may charge 5,000 per facebook post by giving emphasis to a brand.

#5. Earn money through facebook apps

You can earn money by becoming a facebook app developer. Or, you can develop a facebook app independently. In your app you can earn money by applying for banner ads or you can sell virtual goods of your own or from some gaming companies like  EA, Zynga, Popcap etc.

#6. Earn money by account selling

You can earn money by selling your old facebook accounts. Earlier it had become a trend to make more than one account. But now marketers are buying those accounts for their promotional purpose as facebook gives more weightage to an old account.

Similarly, you can sell your old facebook group or page with a good number of fan base.

#7. Earn money from facebook group

You can make a facebook group. Try to make a group with more than 10k members and a good engagement in conversation around a niche. Keep the members engaged with relevant questions, blog posts, images, polls etc.

You can earn money on facebook group by,

  • Paid surveys
  • Sponsored content.
  • Selling your own product/book/services.
  • Affiliate marketing.

Over to you

Making money from facebook can be a little tricky. But it is definitely doable.

Facebook does not allow organic promotion to a large number of fans. But the trick here is, if you can keep your audiences engaged, you can read a larger audience organically.

If you have any more suggestions for earning money through Facebook, do share in the comments.

    • Don’t spend money on boosting your posts unless you are making money from the posts. First figure out at least one way to make money from the posts. For example – Ads, Affiliate marketing or brand partnerships.

    • Neon,

      You can earn from affiliate or brand promotion but

      first of all, think about how you can add value to your group members.

      Only then you can win the trust of group members and monetize your group.

    • Ask yourself a few questions first –
      1. Why these people are following you?
      2. How can you add value to their lives?
      3. If you can add value to their lives somehow, how you can earn out of that?

      You’ll get the answer yourself. Best wishes.

    • There are many ways as I told in the post like selling products or becoming an influencer. Companies will pay you when you’ll have huge followers base and you’ll promote their products.

      Reply
      • The question is. When a company approaches you to pay for ads in your group, how do you collect the money? Do you send them a PayPal link? I have a group with 12,000+ members for a specific genre and I have had several companies approach me to advertise in my group. So how do collect on that? Say if you charge $25 per week for pinned ads. Do you collect via PayPal?

  30. Hey Bro,

    Its good to read your article. simple, short & clean words.
    Found you while searching about Instant article on FB page.
    I have a page with more than 4K likes and growing day by day. as this page has only City (own village) related Images, news and latest update. due to small village i am unable to cover more topics except few updated images and news. Engagement is good & reach as well.
    weekly engagement 15K and reach approx 27K. more than 60% engagement comes from Middle east because people from my village are working there and they dont have another option for know whats happening in village.

    can you please suggest me what should i do for making money?

    • Difficult to monetise. You can try promoting the local business, or any services/products that your audience is buying.

      For example, if your audience buy from Amazon, then you can promote some products from amazon (with affiliated links)

    • This post is very helpful. Thanks for putting together such a great content.

      Now to answer your question: My Facebook page has less then 320 fans. I create the page 2 months later but i have generated $1000. Facebook is a goldmine and with a great strategy you can generate passive income.

  31. You can promote products as an affiliate on Facebook as well.

    This can be a little tricky. You don’t want to spam your friends and family by dumping affiliate links every time you post on Facebook. You have to strike a balance.

    More importantly, you have to find and promote something that is relevant. For example, around the Halloween, you could promote Halloween customs for an online store.

      facebook won’t allow paid ads for affilate link promotion.
      if you want to do affilate link promotion throug fb paid ad..you may creat landing page, where you can post affilare link on your landing page and promote landig page link on facebook paid ad….through this technique you can able to promote clickbank links too…
