People who have Facebook pages with good number of likes have higher chances of earning since that is where you don’t have limitation. Facebook profile cannot have more than 5,000 friends. Facebook pages and groups do not possess any limitation.

I recommend all of you to use either Facebook page or group to start.  

Let’s break down the Facebook monetization process in to two simple steps.

  1. Getting good number of Facebook page likes / group members.
  2. Generating revenue through various ways listed below.

1. Get Good Number Of Facebook Page Likes / Group Members

Select a topic for Facebook page or group. Topic should be related to Entertainment since that will grab a lot of users attention.

Let’s split Facebook pages and groups for better understanding.

Get Facebook Page Likes

  1. Create a Facebook page using this link with compelling page name. Your page name is very important since that will encourage people to like your page in suggestions list.
  2. Setup a good profile picture and cover photo.
  3. Invite all your friends to like your Facebook page.
  4. Ask your friends to share your Facebook page to their wall.
  5. Post user engaging content like photos / messages / videos so that people may share your posts and then their friends will also see your page, thus you will get more number of likes.
  6. Post things that are more likely to get comments, shares and likes / reactions.
  7. Post one or two links a day (we will see the kind of links in second step)

Get Facebook Group Members

  1. Create a Facebook group with privacy as Public
  2. Add all your friends to that group
  3. Ask your friends to add their friends to that group
  4. Keep group post approval settings as “All group posts must be approved by an admin or a moderator” and prevent spam as much as possible so your group members may not get bored.
  5. Post user engaging content like photos / messages / videos so that people may share your posts and then their friends will also see your page, thus more members will request to join the group.
  6. Post things that are more likely to get comments, shares and likes / reactions.

2. Earning from Facebook Page / Group

Way #1. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is basically referring a product or service to people and get paid when they make a purchase of the product or service. The best thing about affiliate programs is Cookie validity period. If the program’s cookie validity period is 90 days then you will get paid whenever your referral user purchases a product with in the 90 days period.

Great no? 😀

Not just that, referral purchase need not be the product you have linked, it can be any product. For example, you share a link of some x brand hair dryer and your visitor buys some other conditioner following your link, you will still get paid since they have followed your link. The same way, number of products (in a single purchase) will also be taken in to consideration.

Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn money from Facebook only if you receive targeted traffic. If you promote electronics, then your Facebook audience / followers interest should be related to electronics. Otherwise, you will get very low conversion rate thus low income.

There are many affiliate programs in each and every category. You should select a niche based on your audience interest.

Some reputed Affiliate Programs

You should register with multiple affiliate programs and grab the product / service links and post it to your Facebook page / group. You can also make use of affiliate marketplaces like CJ to participate in multiple affiliate programs at once.
