Five ways to make money with a Facebook Page

With more than one billion users, Facebook is an excellent opportunity for any business that wants to use it as a sales or advertising tool.

But the question on many people’s minds is, can I make money from Facebook, too, even if I don’t have a business?

Is there a way to start making money with a Facebook page if I don’t have a business?

There is no one way: there are five different ways to do it!

Today I’m going to show you how to make money with your own Facebook Page through 5 different methods that will allow you to start generating income quickly.

Requirements to monetize a Facebook Page

The first mandatory requirement is obviously to have a Facebook Page.

Several readers have asked me if their personal Facebook profiles can also be used to make money. And the answer is yes.

But it is much more challenging to monetize a personal profile than a Facebook page because the personal profile is not specific.

You may have friends with totally different interests; some will like techno music, others rock or pop.

Some will have pets; others won’t because they don’t like animals.

On the other hand, a Facebook page is more specific because the fans have a common interest.

If you make a page about rock music, only lovers of good rock music will click “Like.” If your page is aimed at pet owners, only those with a dog, a cat, or a parakeet will become fans.

So the first thing to keep in mind is that you must have your own Facebook page. Forget about using your profile to make money with this social network. And remember that you will now be able to create ads on Facebook.

How to make money with a Facebook Page

Have you already created your own Facebook page and have a few fans? Then I will show you the five different methods you can use to make money with it.

Five ways to make money with a Facebook Page

1. Make money on Facebook with mentions

If you have many fans following your Facebook page posts, you can make money by mentioning or promoting companies, businesses, or anyone who wants to get noticed.

Many small businesses, brands, or even entrepreneurs do not have a presence on Facebook, or, if they have their page, they want to be more visible to users.

They are willing to pay pages with a good number of fans to mention them in a Facebook post (along with a photo) to attract customers or increase the number of visits to their website.

To achieve this type of collaboration, the best thing to do is search on Facebook or Google for companies interested in your page, make a list of the most relevant ones, and contact them to reach an economic agreement in exchange for your publication.

But be careful: don’t contact just anyone. It would be best if you did it with companies or brands related to the theme or interests of your Facebook page.

If you have a page dedicated to mobile phones, it makes no sense to mention a food company. Ideally, contact brands that sell accessories or products related to mobile phones.

2. Sell your products

One of the easiest ways to make money with a Facebook page is to sell your digital products.

These can be ebooks that you have written, such as ebooks or guides and manuals, or items that can be downloaded immediately, such as online courses that you have created, mp3 music…

To sell them, you only need to upload those files to a storage platform – such as Mega – and post an attractive photo of your product on Facebook with a short description and the link to make the payment.

Don’t overdo it with these posts because if you repeat them too often on your Facebook page, your fans will feel like you’re saturating them with advertising.

It is best to publish one of these promotional posts for every ten average posts.

3. Promote affiliate products on your page

Don’t have any products of your own? Then sell other people’s items and take a commission for every sale. This is called “affiliate marketing.”

This method works the same as the previous one; instead of adding a link to your products, you will have to post the affiliate link provided by the company you signed up with.

Many companies have affiliate programs: Clickbank, Amazon, Apple, Zalando, Asos…

Do a little research on the Internet to find the company that best suits your Facebook Page, sign up for their affiliate program, and choose the relevant products for your fans.

Post your affiliate link, and every time someone clicks on that link and buys the product, you’ll get a commission on the total sale.

Here are a few more tips on how to generate more income with affiliate programs:

Make sure the affiliate products you choose are of interest to your fans and are related to the theme of your page.

Accompany each post with a short but interesting description and a good product picture. NEVER post just the affiliate link.

See how your fans react to that post and how many “Likes” it gets in the first few hours. Check what kind of comments the post receives and whether they are negative or positive.

If the reaction from your fans is terrible, find another product. If it’s good, keep selling it.

Ideally, use this method when you have at least 1,000 fans on your page.

4. Send traffic to your blog with AdSense ads

If you have a little corner of the Internet where you write frequent posts, you can redirect your Facebook fans to it to earn money.

All you have to do in this method is place some Google AdSense ads on your blog. When your fans visit your page, they will see those ads, and you will earn money too.

Please read our article How Google AdSense works to earn money and find out how to start monetizing your blog with these ads.

On your Facebook page, all you will need to do is post links to each new article you write with a catchy description so that people will click on that link, go to your blog, and see your ads.

Don’t think this is silly: Viralnova.com uses this method, and in a few months, it got millions of hits a day and generated thousands of dollars in revenue every month with AdSense ads.

5. Sell your own Facebook page

Every day, more and more people create Facebook pages with a specific theme, post different content on them to attract fans, and then sell them when they have reached a large number of followers.

A whole market has grown up around this, and many people are buying Facebook pages already created with fans for their small business or professional brand.

This method indeed requires some patience and a good knowledge of managing this social network. But if you work to create a good Facebook page, you can make this a profession with a good income.

To give you a better idea: Facebook pages usually sell for between $150 and as much as $2,500, depending on the number of fans.

Don’t you think this is a profitable idea?

I recommend combining all or just a few of these methods to generate even more income. For example, you can use your page to earn money with AdSense on your blog and, at the same time, sell mentions and affiliate products.
