- This tutorial will show you how to make money by providing social proof
- You will be reselling likes, views, subscribers, followers, and similar social signals.
- You’ll also learn where to get the services from, and where to sell them for a profit.
The way this thing works is simple.
We source social media marketing panels that have great prices. These will be your supplier, then we find marketplaces where we can sell them, and you guessed it, we resell them!
Social media panels are dashboards that allow you to purchase a bunch of different services. These services include things such as:
- Facebook Likes
- YouTube Subscribers
- Reddit Upvotes
Why would anyone want this?
The services are attractive for a number of reasons. But the main reason is “social proof”. Proof from the public that post is worth a person’s attention, validated by the number of views, likes, followers.
Boosting people’s posts and profile makes them seem far more attractive that they would if they had not likes.
But the views are fake, how does this help people?
As previously mentioned, posts with high engagement will naturally attract people. The idea isn’t to generate “traffic”, but rather, to sell the indirect effects of boosting a customers profile.
There are quite a few social-media marketing panels, but most are fairly underground. For some reason, they haven’t really broken into the mainstream.
A list of the best social media marketing panels
My personal favorite is Instant Fans. However, here’s a list of panels that you can try.
Have a look through all of them and get a feel for which panel you like the most.
Social media panels are usually automated, so you don’t have to worry about reselling a human’s services. Test out the services on one of your own social accounts to get accustomed to how it works.
Is this even profitable?
Yes, this is extremely profitable.
These panels sell their services extremely cheap. Cheap enough that you can sell them for a much higher price without scaring away your customers.
After all, they’re social media reseller panels.
How do we find customers to sell these services to?
Now you’ve got two options that I’m going to give you. Of course there are many more options, but these two are most specifically the ones I’m going to share with you.
- Digital service marketplaces
- Your own reseller website
Let’s go through them both.
Signup with digital service marketplaces
Marketplaces make it easy for you find customers, sell to them, and get support. By going this route, we don’t have to set up any websites, or worry about generating traffic. People are already there seeking these services.
Best marketplaces to resell on
You should make an account on these marketplaces:
If you’re looking for even more places, just Google “SEO Marketplace” or “social media marketplace”. There are many options.
Check out the competition, see what and how’re they’re selling
Once you’ve signed up, look through what some of your competitors are doing. Analyse their listings, taking in the methods they use to make their products more attractive; how many images they use and what contact details they put down are great pointers.
Make a listing and advertise a service from a panel
Next, make your own listing. Make sure you fill in any details i.e. description, tags, images.
Ensure you put down a similar response time to your social media panel so your customers aren’t unsettled.
Finally, make sure you boost your margins. If you buy 1000 youtube views at $10, make sure you’re selling at least $10.01 (+ fees). Add on money and make profit, it’s simple.
I’d advise you to branch out onto various sites, you can even interlink your profiles for some SEO ranking benefits; after all, if you’re on Google with your social media listings that you’ll get a tonne of money coming through.
Make your own website
This is tough if you’ve never done this stuff before.
You can, however, sell your services much more expensively because there’s no on-site competition.
The same principles apply from the digital marketplaces method. You put profit on top.
You obviously need a few things though to get this done:
- A website; if you can’t code, pay someone on Freelancer to do it
- Money; for ads, it’s hard to compete without this
- Try out Facebook Ads, but don’t advertise Facebook services on Facebook, simple logic; Facebook Ads is one the cheapest at the moment…
- SEO; again, pay someone if you can’t do it (the market places I mentioned earlier all have people offering these services cheaply)
The rest of your stuff is assumed, so things like being able to process your orders .etc
Examples of sites where independent people resell likes
Some good examples of sites that are (probably) reselling social media services are:
Things to be aware of
Charge-backs occur when a user claims they’ve not received their goods. You can avoid this by:
- Using a marketplace (middleman)
- Screenshotting profiles before and after the service
- Trading with people that have good feedback
There’s a few tips here that I want to leave you with, but I think everything’s been explained well enough so far..
- Slightly over-estimate your delivery times at first, once you get a feel for each panel, improve it.
- Don’t rely solely on one panel
- Always record the start and finish amount of views, likes, followers .etc; good idea to take photos
And finally, learn more about what social signals actually do. Read up on social media marketing.
