Facebook has offered it’s pages feature for some years now, and many of us have made at least one, forgotten about it and come back to find it has several 100s and in some cases 1000s of fans or “likes”.
The thing is, not everyone knows how to make money from their Facebook page, so I’m going to go over some ways that you can take advantage of your page, it’s following and profit from the traffic.
Sell Niche Relevant Affiliate Products
This method is on pretty much every make money blog on the internet, sell affiliate products, the reason why it’s on every blog is because this is a great way to make money. You need to understand however, that just because everyone acknowledges that it’s a good way to make money, it’s not always an easy way to make money, but for the most part, it cuts out a lot of the process of making, producing and transporting a product to a customer.
There are a huge rank of affiliate networks out there such as Clickbank & Amazon Affliates where you can sell products for a cut of the final sale price. Now if you have a Facebook page, you need to find products related to your page and then it’s as simple as posting the link on your page. Don’t spam your Facebook page because you’ll lose all rapport and slowly lose your likes and ultimately your entire “fan base”, because that’s what these people are, fans.
Advertise CPA Offers
A lot of people think that CPA is just content locking, and while yes, content locking is a great way to make money with cpa, it’s only a little sector of a huge industry. CPA stands for cost-per-action, which in simple terms means “we pay you for getting your traffic to do a certain thing”, this can be anything from submitting an email, doing a survey or buying a product. The difficulty tends to translate into the payout, with $xx.xx payouts for pin-submits and purchases and $x.xx for submitting emails.
The benefit of CPA offers is that they tend to be really attractive, not only in money terms for you, but for the public. You can earn $2.oo for someone submitting an email to a competition to win an iPhone, now this a good enough offer for most people, so you don’t even need to have a niche relevant Facebook page in many cases.
If you’re not yet with a CPA Network or you want my honest recommendations then go with one of the following (in order):
Sell posts on your page
If you have enough likes and a large enough following then you can get paid to post on your page. Using sites such as Fiverr or SEOClerks, you can sign up and sell your services there, most people will simply be selling affiliate products or advertising some type of CPA offer, so of course this choice is up to you.
If you don’t see any success with the first two methods than sell the opportunity to other people, if these people are happy they’ll keep coming back, if they’re not then there’s a bunch of other people out there willing to pay you to give it a shot.
If you have some sort of generic page, then you can get away with spreading your referral links, to survey or user testing sites such as whatusersdo. These sites will give you a percentage of you referred users earnings and with a large fan base you could find yourself earning a good deal of cash without doing a thing.
