3 Ways to Monetize Facebook

Facebook at the moment is easily the most popular social media website that is around. It is no longer a platform only for the college students. Instead it has exponentially extended its reach to people of all ages. With millions of people on Facebook, it has opened up a Pandora's box of opportunities for business owners. Although many doubt the effectiveness of marketing through social media, it is nonetheless a means of online monetization that you do not want to miss out. Let me show you some tactics that you could use to monetize Facebook.

Share more, Sell less and Make Friends!

First and foremost, it is important to understand that Facebook was setup for the purpose of social interaction. It is a place for people with common interest or similarities to get to know one another.

Many online marketers make the mistake of pushing and selling their products aggressively on Facebook. This action is frowned upon especially when you add friends into your list solely for the purpose of spamming their walls. Facebook will not hesitate to shut down your account if you do so. There are other ways to monetize Facebook and create value to your list of friends.

Create a Facebook Page

Firstly create a Facebook page and added people of similar interest and niche as you. Post a status everyday and remember to engage the people who are on your list. It is important for people to feel that you are there to share experiences or interest topics with them. If you treat your list only as your customers and not as friends, you are sure to lose your list fast. Nobody wants a friend on Facebook who badgers them to buy something all the time. If you are able to gain their trust, your list will be more receptive to what you have to say. You may share affiliate links and review the products that you want to promote once you gain their trust.

Share YouTube Videos

In addition, it is a good strategy to share YouTube videos on your Facebook page. Sharing these videos with AdSense advertisements in your Facebook page greatly increases the visibility of your videos and you can profit from AdSense clicks. However, only share videos that are relevant to your niche. Sharing good information will keep your list wanting more.

Introduce your website or blog

Lastly, you will want to use your Facebook page to bring traffic to your blog or product landing page. Once again, it would be annoying if someone constantly posts with an obvious motive of monetizing Facebook. Avoid such actions. Rather, just share it on your profile. Your list will view it automatically once you generate enough interest on yourself, and make them curious to find out more about what you do.

Now that you understand what I am saying, I have a special time limited bonus for you. A few months back I chanced upon Jaz lai's Inbox Cash Techniques series and I took the time to go through this internet marketing gem.

To my horror the techniques stated in his ebook resources were exactly the things that I have been practicing. What took me years to perfect was actually just there in a single book.
