It’s fair to say that social media has taken over the internet in the last decade. For most people, the bulk of their internet usage involves Facebook. With the ability to simply plug in and view the timelines of all of your friends’ lives, it’s not hard to see why it is so addictive.
Whether sites like Facebook are ultimately a good or bad thing for society is up for debate, but one thing can be said for certain: There is money to be made there. If you have products or services to sell, it is best to make sure that your brand is visible in areas where your audience is present.
There are many ways to make money with Facebook. Let’s take a look at a few of the easier ways to get started:
The group post + Email opt-in method
One of the most basic methods of making money on Facebook is a twist on the whole “landing page” method of internet marketing. You can create a simple landing page that provides a valuable offer. For example, let’s say you’re in the pets niche, so you offer to send people a free book on how to groom their cat in exchange for their signing up for your email list. While the original offer is free, this increases the likelihood that your prospects will be willing to buy your products or services.
