10 Easy Ways to Earn Money from Facebook

Facebook is a household name around the world. This social networking platform has over 2.2 billion registered Monthly Active Users (MAUs) and the number is growing rapidly.

While Facebook allows you to stay in touch with relatives and friends, it also offers excellent opportunities for people to make money. There are several direct and indirect ways by which you can earn money from Facebook in 2018.

All you need is a Facebook account and some ingenuity to cash on the world’s favorite social media platform.

Why Facebook

Facebook ranks as the world’s third most popular website, surpassed only by search engine Google and its video sharing channel, YouTube. This means, whatever you do on Facebook has immense impact around the world.

Realizing that people also need to make money through social networking, Facebook has launched several tools that allow people to earn. The website has global reach and allows posting text, pictures, video and audio content for registered users.

How to Earn Money from Facebook

Considering the above facts, here are 10 beast and ways and means that can help you make money with Facebook. You can use one or multiple ways to make money from Facebook as per your convenience.

1. Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace is a free facility offered by the social networking website. It allows you to list various items, services and deals and promote them directly within the Facebook community.

The service allows you to reach thousands of people through your own social network while allowing Facebook friends to notify others about what you are selling. You can sell any item or service that meets Facebook Community Guidelines.

Similar to classifieds, the buyer can contact you, inspect the goods and finalize price, shipping and other details.

However, if you have an eye for unique stuff, you can make more money. A lot of items sold on Facebook Marketplace are rare and can fetch higher value in brick-and-mortar stores. Buy the stuff and resell it either online or through stores.

2. Affiliate Marketing on Facebook

Affiliate marketing is a system by which you promote a product, brand, service or company through a Facebook page or groups to your contacts. Thousands of merchants including Amazon, Flipkart, VCommission, Shaadi.com and many other pay you to promote their products.

You can do so by joining affiliate marketing programs offered by these organizations and posting their content on your Facebook page. Every time an interested party looks up the advertisement or content you have posted and becomes its customer, you stand to make some money.

3. Advertise Your Business on FB

Facebook has emerged as the single largest common platform on which every business- from home based ventures to the largest banks and consumer goods companies have a presence.

I have seen many common people are promoting their training, consultancy, selling home-made products or even custom-made dresses and jewelry through Facebook business. There are multiple options to promote your product on Facebook.

You can also interact with customers through the instant messenger service available on Facebook.

4. Create Facebook Content

Facebook encourages people who have unique skills or knowledge to take time and create digital content that can be sold through an app called 22Social. Content that can be sold includes PDF files, audios and videos.

Facebook also provides an excellent online tutorial for people who wish to monetize their content using 22Social and the social media platform.

All you need is a Facebook page, a free 22Social account, verified PayPal account and free or paid account to digital hosting including Dropbox, Vimeo, YouTube, Google Drive and SoundCloud, among others.

5. Earn by Selling Facebook Likes

This is a very debatable way to make money with Facebook. There are forums that support selling ‘likes’ for a Facebook page while others deem the system as illegal. Regardless, there are several marketers who will pay you to send a Facebook page to your ‘friends’.

Your friends have to simply click the ’like’ button on that Facebook page. According to various reports, including one published by National Public Radio (NPR), people charge as much as US$ 75 to give 1,000 likes for any Facebook page. Others advertize the service on sites like Fiverr.

6. Influencer Marketing on Facebook

Influencer marketing is not for anyone who has a large following on Facebook. Indeed, most people do not permit people to ‘follow’ them on Facebook because their content can land them in danger, if it is dealing with sensitive issues like politics and religion.

However, influencer marketers look for people with large followings and huge network of friends. They offer money to promote a brand or ideology through your Facebook page.

The system came under scrutiny of American and other law enforcement agencies after it was revealed that some sort of ‘influencer marketing’ could have been done by certain countries during election campaigns in the US and elsewhere.

Offering your Facebook following for influencer marketing for brands of products is however harmless.

7. Earn from Facebook Ads

Facebook Ads is a facility extended by the social media giant to corporate and individual users. It allows you to create and pot advertisements of various sorts that target a specific group of people based on age, location and other demographic parameters.

If you have a small home based business, you can make money by advertizing through Facebook Ads. The social media firm offers free and paid packages for Facebook Ads, depending upon your usage and target audience.

Additionally, you can also offer services of posting advertisements on behalf of businesses who wish to remain anonymous. Several large companies looking at hiring staff do not divulge their identity.

8. Manage Facebook Accounts

Managing social media accounts, especially Facebook page of a company or celebrity is very lucrative work from home option. There are scores of social media management jobs you can find online.

These jobs that require you to manage Facebook pages can be done fulltime or even part-time to make extra money. They are advertised under various designations like Social Media Manager, Facebook Assistant, Social Media Specialist and myriad others.

9. Facebook Groups

People open group pages on Facebook for various reasons. There are two categories of Facebook groups- Open and Closed. In an ‘Open’ group, people can join anytime. The other is a “Closed” group where membership is by invitation or application only.

Opening a Facebook group enables you to work as micro-influencer or a cause, political party or business. You can invite friends to become members of the group and invite others too. Upon reaching the desired level of membership, you can ‘close’ the group. A ‘Closed’ group allows you to influence members about anything.

10. Direct Advertizing

A small business can post advertisements directly on a regular Facebook page to attract customers. These advertisements can be about employment, classifieds, products and services. Many small businesses use Facebook purely as a forum to post their advertisements.

A lot of jobseekers also browse Facebook pages of companies to find employment opportunities.

In Conclusion

Facebook allows linking with various apps that allow you to open an online store or get memberships. However, the company is currently reviewing its policies governing apps as well as security levels of apps after reports of data leaks rocked the world in March 2018.

Hence, we prefer not to comment on these money-making apps that can be linked with Facebook. As we can see from the highlighted examples, it is very easy to earn money from Facebook. All you need is the inclination and time to cash-in on the social media platform.

4 Tips for Creating a Viral Facebook Post
hashtag man use Social Media Blog Post computer and chat

So you want to go viral. It could be for future fame, financial gain, or because you really believe in your message.

All three desires are worth their own merit and can be the driving force behind your viral Facebook post. And all three can be a reality for you if you follow these tips!

Read on to figure out how to use Facebook to your advantage and get your name or message out to the masses.

1. Creating a Viral Facebook Post: The Hook

You can’t have a viral Facebook post without a topic. The topic and how it’s worded is going to be the “hook” that catches your readers. If the information is not of interest to them, they will keep on scrolling, looking for something better.

The title of your post, or the linked image, will be the first thing your audience sees and notices. Creativity, humor, or shock value matter.

The reader’s first taste of the article or post should be relevant to them and give them a taste of what they may be in for when they begin to read. Many people are not going to become engaged in an article that doesn’t interest them in some way. This means they likely won’t share it, hindering the likelihood of a viral post.

2. Images Are Your Friend

Images and infographics are also another great tool. Something visually pleasing and related to your article will entice the reader to share this great article or piece of information they’ve found.

Using visually pleasing components in your post will allow for the reader to remember what you say and take away some cool statistics or information. When information is paired with memorable images, the likelihood of the reader retaining the facts increases.

When posting to your own page, Facebook covers are equally important. These photos will draw the eye into your page and make people curious as to what you have to say.

3. Be Clear and Concise

Regardless of what age your main audience is, it’s no secret that the age of computers and smartphones has shortened the attention span of most readers.

When composing a post that you want to be shared over and over again, keep this in mind. Unless doing in-depth research, people are not going to be engaged in an extremely lengthy article.

They want facts and bullet points, and easy to read information. Don’t dumb it down too much, but keep in mind the vocabulary you use, as well as the topic at hand.

4. Ask and You’ll Receive

If you find that you’re still having a hard time getting your information or post out there to the masses, it might be time too take a look at social media influencers.

There are a couple ways to go about using these accounts that have tons of followers, but the easiest two are going to be joining in relevant conversations, or flat out asking for a mention of a quote.

Just being able to associate your post with this type of account should drive traffic and shares.

The Line & Sinker

Overall, creating a viral Facebook post isn’t incredibly hard. But it does require a good bit of thought and effort.

The other component is somewhat luck of the draw, but if you include these tips in your next attempt to go viral, you may just have some of that good luck.

facebook friends get more and more with the info

getting a lot facebook friends

We all like friends but from a business point of view having more Facebook friends can be a real benefit. I have 3008 friends and counting. The nice thing about this is that I get at least 2 or 3 friends request per day as they see me on their friends profile and wonder who I am. They check out my profile and think yeah, id like to be friends with this guy. So how did I get to 2708 friends?

If you try and sell to people they will do one of three things, unfriend you, block you or report you. The last two are things that will get you banned and then you have to either beg to be put back on or start over.

Being real will get you more Facebook friends it is that simple. Lets think about how you use Facebook, would you add someone who is all about selling or is just a picture of a girl with big boobs but seems to post a lot about Viagra?

By being yourself you will connect with people who actually connect with you. 2222 friends is great but how many of them actually connect with me? The answer is 10% and of those, how many book on a web design course, again around 10%. These figures are actually quite good as they repeat each month. The only way I can do this is by not selling out and being real when it matters.

If you see someone commenting or liking something that you do, then connect with them. People want to talk to people so it’s best to start off a conversation before you friends request, then you will have more chance of making that person into a new friend. The second benefit is that by making a new friend that persons contacts will see who they just befriended, from there they may wonder who their best mate became friends with and if you are worth knowing (see item 10) then you will get a friends requests.

To connect with people look out for topics that you are interested in or that are relevant to what you do. e.g. “I am starting a online graphic design course tomorrow” then that is your chance to comment and connect. My reply might be something like ”

If you sell clothes or run public speaking seminars dont harp on about them. Also if you're into something it does not mean everybody else will be. If you keep going on about something you can imagine how annoying that can be. Now this also means when you have a new product launch dont go through all the groups and fan pages and put the same text as this will appear as a long same same list on your profile. Someone looking at your profile will just see 10 or so posts all the same “how boring, he must just be using Facebook to sell, where is the unfriend link”.

I vary everything I do on Facebook, I tell people when I am having bad day, I wish my friends happy birthday, I post up funny pictures and I let people know that a new course is starting this weekend if anyone is interested let me know.

I know what you are thinking, “I am a busy person, I dont have time to share my life on Facebook". Well luckily it is not about the quantity on Facebook it is all about the quality. So post when you want or when something important has happened or will happen. If you are not a social person dont try to be, just be yourself and vary it a bit.

I am a member of 55+ groups, now that is not to say I take part in every group as often they start-up and fizzle out quickly. There is actually an art finding the good groups to join. When looking for groups I first see if they are relevant and am I interested in interacting with it’s members. Then I look at the wall, is the group active? With two yes’s under my belt I hit join and then I am in.

Once part of a group take a look at the conversations going on and see if you can anything of worth. When you reply to a persons comment and you get a dialogue going you can then check out their profile and hit friends request. Because they know you from the group they are more inclined to say yes.

A more direct way is simply doing a friends request and adding a person note like “Hiya, we are both members of the international ninja stamp collectors group, thought I would say hi”. If you are friendly, relevant and you share a group with the person you have more chance of the person clicking Confirm.

If you are new to Facebook then upload your contacts and Facebook will do the rest. To do this you will need to get a .csv file of all your contacts . In Outlook you simply export, Gmailyou go to contacts and look for export in the settings menu, Hotmail is the same and if you are on Mail for the Mac then follow these instructions.

A word of warning, dont do this with a bought list or an export of your customers. They need to be friends, if you dont have a list of your friends then simply do not do this. You want a quality set of friends not just a big number. My 2222 friends is getting smaller as it is bigger as I am deleting people who dont interact with me.

Can be seen by Google, not hidden behind a profile. Do be careful that your fan page does not out rank your own website though.

  • A great source of interaction with your users. We often post our own articles on there (this one included)
  • You can ask questions. This is an under rated phenomena and can be so useful e.g. “what do you think of our new logo?” or “do you think people will like this new design”. You will be making your questions relevant to your business but getting opinions can really steer you in the right direction.
  • Fan pages can be added to your website, if people enter your site and they are logged into Facebook they will see a list of the friends smiling away saying “dude where have you been, we already like this page, you should too”
  • Fan pages come with insights telling you who is interacting with your page, male to female ratio and you will receive regular updates in your e-mail.

When you are looking for more Facebook friends be sure to look past the pretty picture and look at what they have been liking, talking about, commenting on, groups they are part of and pictures they have posted. You can get a really good idea about a persons likes and habits from their wall posts and news feed. Find something that you share in common and contact them about that. For example, “I studied AiKiDo in France before coming to Thailand, how long have you been learning AiKiDo?” or “I saw you like collecting rare post cards, do you have the Justice Bhalla’s rare postcard collection?”

Think about this from their point of view, they get a friend request from someone they dont know, they want to know if there is a reason to know this person, if you share a common interest you have much more change of making a real friend.

  1. Look around your friends friends, group members, fans of the same page
  2. Find a person you think will be a good friend/connection
  3. Look at their info and check if they are in the same city/area (for me this is important as we run a Online Marketing Courses in Bangkok not Toronto Canada and I would like to actually meet the person in the flesh one day as that gives more of a chance to connect with them.)
  4. Find common interests, this can be with their likes, favorites or even where they studied. This is all on their info panel (assuming they have this accessible by non-friends)
  5. Hit friends request and add a relevant message.

You need to be real, interesting and friendly or people will not like your friends request. Be sure that you also prune your friend list every now and then. This is for two reasons, to keep a list that is active and only of people you actually interact with and if you mention you are pruning your list it makes the people remaining on the list after the cull feel more special.

Important: when people accept your request or request to be your friend on Facebook, make sure you add them to relevant lists early. I wish I had done this much sooner as it is a very useful tool. With lists you can invite specific people to events and pages as well as contacting them as a group. Segmentation of contacts is super so be sure to do it.

don’t play with nature be friendly with it

why ?When you hear the word nature, what do you think it is? Do you think it is important? I believe that nature is everything that was put on this earth whether it is the food we eat, the water we drink, or the wood we use to build our houses. Others may think nature is just the oceans and the forests, but no matter what you think nature is we all must take care of it because it was given to us. The early settlers didn’t really think of nature as the source of life because the nature that they lived with was so vast and so untouched they never imagined that what they did to it would hurt it in any way. The Indians on the other hand, thought that everything in nature was of equal importance. From the Indians themselves, to the buffalo and the deer, to the grass they walk on, to the fish in the sea, all must live as one in order for the world to be peaceful.
When the early settlers arrived at Cape Cod in 1620, they viewed nature in this new world as a very barbaric and desolate place. It was said that, from the story Of Plymouth Plantation, ‘…being thus passed the vast ocean, and a sea of troubles before in their preparation, they had now no friends to welcome them nor inns to entertain or refresh their weather beaten bodies; no houses or much less towns to repair to, to seek succor (n pp. 83).’ The early settlers weren’t at all prepared for what was ahead of them. They were forced right away to ‘cultivate a similar closeness to the land (y pp 2-3).’ For if they hadn’t, the small fraction of them that did survive the early years, would not have if the Indians did not help them. In other words, the settlers were used to a world in which everything was civil and righteous. As they left for the new world in 1620 they didn’t expect that beginning a new life would be so difficult.
Early settlers acted as though nature belonged to them and that they could claim it as their own

we are all playing with the nature it will be very harmful not only for the nature but also for ourselves so please come forward and determine not to do against the nature.

embalancing of the weather is due to this reason because we are just only using nature and not trying to do any thing for the safety of the nature.

we should understand that nature is in actual mean our life not a use and through thing.

The establishment of dozens of “healing forests” is part of South Korea’s surprising prescription to improve its citizens’ health. Journalist Florence Williams takes a walk in the woods to learn more about this intriguing approach to public health.

Every species plays a crucial role in our natural world. But when humans tinker with the equation, a chain reaction can cause entire ecosystems to break down. In this hour, TED speakers explain how everything is connected in nature, with some bold ideas about how we can restore the delicate balance and bring disappearing ecosystems back

Our planet is a wonder, a perfectly improbable incubator for life. It’s also in danger because of our indifference. Reflections on both those truths.

Green, leafy, often delicious: Plants are all around us and make the ecosystem work. Hear from gardeners, vegetarians, designers and conservationists on the wonderful world of plants and vegetables.

Why Diaspora Isn’t Popular Like Facebook

You can find that facebook is getting popular everyday. And they hold the largest personal data bank. They know patterns of many people. They are literally reading what people are posting. And then giving this data to advertisers. And based on that they make money. You can see that many people who are using facebook are realizing the fact that facebook controls their life. And they are giving it to many people. So in this chaps, there is a social network script that allows you to create your own facebook and host it privately. This way they are reaching more people and also limiting the the way they are doing things. I want to show you why there is a need for another social network like diaspora. And what are some of the things that you can do with it as you spend money.

Open Source

You can’t edit the source code of facebook. You can’t have your own server with facebook. That can be changed with the diasppora. It allows you to have your own server. You can easily decide to run it with limited number of people. You can also limit the federation in such case. This way you have more control over the social network. Many colleges can use the diaspora easily. So you can see that open source social networks can be easily used in college, office etc. And they can develop a lot of your business. You have to just learn how to manage the goal for your social network and things can be easily taken care of.

Distributed

You can easily import and export data from one network to another. For example friendica and diaspora can communicate well. And this means you are losing any friends if they change network. So this type of protoctol can be good. You can reach more people and not lose the friends. In case of facebook, twitter and few others, you’d however will have some issues in the process. And that’s something needs to be changed. So if you are into distributed network, make sure you’re doing federation options for your server. And with enough content it can reach more people.

No Spying

Facebook is known for it’s privacy issues. And they do spy on your choices of food and other things. So you can see that it is better to use social network which does not do things such as this. And in due process you’d need to go on much better way. So make sure that there is no spying issues. And in due time you understand that using diaspora, you control a lot of privacy in your own server. You can also make entire server access limited to some people. This way you don’t have to worry about who is doing all the issues around. And you can decide whether to contribute or not in due process.

That being said, you have to understand that facebook has it’s share of issues which can’t be solved as it’s private company. So one has to understand that part.

we need advice on the topic

we will be looking at a story of a young man by the name of Peter (Not real name). He sent in his story and is in need of advice. Find the story below.
Good evening and thanks for giving me this opportunity to share my story and find help. I would really love to get advice because I am confused. My story is one of love and hate.
I have a girlfriend and we have been together since university days. She loves me and I love her too and we decided to abstain from sex until we get married. After I graduated, I served but couldn’t find a job. Sarah on the other hand got a job with a well-paying company. We were still together and things were fine. However as time went by, I became desperate for a job because I felt my life was on a stand still. After staying 5 years without a job, I began to be frustrated. Surprisingly, on one fateful day, Sarah came to me happy and smiling and presented a letter to me. I open it and realized it was an appointed letter in my name. I was shocked! I asked her how come and in response she said she submitted my CV to her boss and he loved it and decided to give me a job. I was excited and my joy knew no bounds. I resumed work two weeks later and my life seemed to have picked up. A month later, I bought a ring and proposed to Sarah. When I took out the ring and asked her to marry me, she started to cry, telling me that she was sorry. I was shocked cos I thought that was what she always wanted. She told me she need to confess something to me. She told that when she took my CV to her boss, he insisted on sleeping with her before giving me the job. She said she pleaded but he insisted and since she didn’t want me feeling frustrated about not having a job, she gave in and slept with him and that she was no longer a virgin.
I was heartbroken. I walked out and have not seen her since then. It’s been one month now and quite frankly, I don’t know how to proceed. Should I end it here or continue with it?

Personal Encounter is Valuable Than Gifts

For siblings or relatives, even close friends, personal encounter or physical presence is so valuable than just sending gifts or present to a person.

This is so clearly seen among relatives who had been separated for so long because they have careers, or jobs in far-flung places, or could be very busy with their own lives. So as much as possible, it is very important to have close contact with them whenever time or situations permit.

An example here is a family who chose to live abroad because the couple are both working there as professionals. They were always on Facebook, updating their friends and relatives on what they were doing in that country; whatever food they had eaten, places visited, or milestones of their children. Whatever their purpose in flooding facebook walls with their activities, it is their right, and they can do it to their heart’s delight!

Then one day they posted that they are going back home to their country. As a close relative, you would expect they would visit you because their home is near your home. They had visited so many local places in your home country; posted it again in Facebook, and you just thought they might be very busy to spend some minutes to say hello to you!

After a week or two, you just learned that they had left for abroad again, and you were left thinking if they hate you, or you had done something wrong that’s why they did not visit you.

Another relative told you that the said family was thinking of visiting you, but they were apparently so shy to show up without giving any token or gifts to you! So amusing! They did not think that what you wanted is to see them in person, not in Facebook. You only wanted their children to know you, to see you, and talk with them on the “real world,” not online or only in Facebook!

This is the negative effect of materialism. Some people forget that nothing could substitute talking face to face with the people you love; being in the real world and not in the virtual world is best.

Gifts or tokens are not needed to connect with relatives or friends, but seeing them in person means more than material things.

People I May Know…on Facebook
April 28, 2017

I was wasting time on Facebook, and there was this list of ‘people I might know’. Hmmm?

So I began to scroll through it. It looked like either the poster from a strip club or women for rent lease or hire.

I really had to jump out of it, because up to now, I can not understand why any one would post these pictures of themselves on line.

These women look like well… they probably are what they look like. And they will be treated as what they look like.

After all the years of women wanting to be taken seriously, after all the struggles for equal rights, to not be treated as an object; these women whom I do not know, and don’t want to know, post these images on Facebook, for what purpose?

Are they Catfish?   You know, Catfish?  Those are people looking to scam others by pretending to be sexy chicks?   Okay.  That makes a little sense.

Some old and ugly 45 year old guy posts the image and will play cutesy with whomever is stupid enough to ‘friend’ his photo.   But are there men that stupid as to send money to a female they don’t see?  What?

Are people that stupid?

Are these the usual kind looking for an all expense paid vacation in someone else’s house? But I don’t know them.  I don’t want to know them.  And they don’t know me.

As you may note, I don’t post a photo here or anywhere.  I don’t talk about my personal appearance, not even gender.  Why?  Because it is irrelevant.

Facebook is a kind of joke for me.   I only joined to play Scrabble.   Friend of mine invited me, I opened an account and have been playing with all sorts of people besides my original opponent for the past few years.

I don’t post personal stuff, just network an item I wrote, or comment (rarely) on something someone I know wrote… and when I say someone I know, I mean I have been to their weddings, I have shared coffee with them, I know them.

If I don’t know you in real life, I don’t know you on Facebook.

So why do those in charge give me a list of ‘people I might know?’ made up of these trashy people?

Despite all the warnings about what happens when you are too open on Facebook, these people have no sense at all whatsoever.

They spill their guts, they make themselves targets, they offer themselves for sale.

This world is getting very creepy.
