5 Ways to Make Money on Facebook

facebook money

In this article I’ll talk about five ways that you can make money on Facebook. Before we even get into the different ways that you can make money, I just want to preface this by saying I know that that might sound a little bit scammy or weird, like one of those sketchy make money at home sort of deals that you are not quite sure that are legit. Well there are quite a lot of people who are promoting illegitimate, scammy ways to try and make money on Facebook, but those methods don’t really work, and here is why:

The basic idea of making money, or commerce, is that you’re exchanging value with other people, so you’re giving them something of value and in return they’re giving you money, which is also something of value, and thus that’s a fair exchange, and every sale transaction works in this way. Someone gives you money, and you give them a service or a product, that is how all legitimate sales happen.

Affiliate Marketing – Ways To Make Money As An Affiliate

Affiliate marketing money

In this article I will present the most efficient way to make money online. Perhaps you are tired of hearing that others make lots of money online and you have not the vaguest idea how to manage this. Of course, many will tell you different “stories” as you can make tens of thousands of dollars per month with no experience, without having a site or without having a mailing list, etc.. That’s 99% lies. If you believe you can make money online, the chances are that you will succeed, but only as long as you work hard.

The truth is that to make money, whether it’s online or offline, it takes time, dedication and commitment. This is true, but from a certain point, the time necessary to maintain the business will be much smaller than the time needed to start that business, which is also normal. When you start a business you should be aware that you have to devote a lot, at least at first. Then it’s up to you if you want to get more involved to develop that business, or to retire and let it go by itself (as long as it will continue to run).

But enough talk, let’s get practical about affiliate marketing. As I said, the best way to make money online is to start a small business in the field of affiliate marketing. What this actually means? You promote other people products and for each product sold, you get a commission, which varies depending on the product and the person who created the product. These fees can reach up to even 75% of the product price when it comes to digital products, such as PDFs, software, video, mp3 that do not require shipping charges.

Suppose that you have documented into this subject and you decide you’re into affiliate marketing. What is the next step? You choose the area (or niche) in which you want to get into. This is the most complicated step do to, because a wrong choice can mean failure for your niche and work. Here is the most important thing you need to keep in mind when selecting your niche:

There are enough people who are willing to pay money for certain services or products, to find the answer to some questions or to get solutions to their problems. If the niche you choose is very “hot” and has tens of thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of searches per month and if people look only for “free” things or are looking for general free information, your work is in vain, like marketing a “free wallpapers” search term.

However, for example, the “nikon d5100” search term has a small number of monthly searches, but the chances to make money in this niche are decent, because people looking at a specific camera review and considering the information available on your site can go through your affiliate link if they made a decision regarding that camera.

When selecting your niche, make sure you target buyers audience, and be as much as specific about your product or service, thus, letting visitors to make just two choices: buy or go.

If you wonder where you can join the most serious affiliate programs, then my recommendation is to join a powerful affiliate network like MaxBounty or Neverblue, where, if accepted, you’ll have plenty of quality products and offers to promote, for a good commission.

In other articles on this site I will present other essential principles that you need to keep in mind before you start affiliate marketing.

Best Methods of Blog Monetization

Best blog monetization methods

Probably the first thing that went through your head when you started your blog was: “How can I get money from it?”. And if you have not questioned it at first, because that blog started just for fun and to share your ideas with others, along the way, you probably wondered how you could get some money from your blog.

In this article I will present the best six ways to make money through your blog. But you should know from the beginning that to make serious money, you need a lot of quality traffic. 10 visitors per day you will not make even 1 euro per month. So here are the best 6 blog monetization methods:

1) AdSense (becoming a publisher)

That’s probably one of the most common methods of blog monetization and sometimes can be very effective. On this blog I have written several articles on how to optimize your blog for AdSense. Fortunately, English-based blogs (with English content) can bring a substantial income from AdSense because CPC (cost per click) is high enough. Although there are ads that may pay a few cents, most of the ads integrated along English content can make good earnings. But you must be very careful if you think it is worth stressing your readers with ads for a few cents. Also, the blog subject is very important, if your blog is about an subject like insurance or loans, you could get a lot of money from AdSense. Here you will find both the AdWords and AdSense programs from Google: http://www.google.com/ads/

2) Affiliate Programs

Affiliate marketing is to promote a product of another person, for a commission. Probably the best known affiliate programs can be found through an affiliate network like Maxbounty or Neverblue, which has many campaigns available in various categories, with commissions varying from $1 (for e-mail submits) to $40 (for trial offer completion). In order to get big money from affiliate programs, you need a niche blog, focused only on one field.

If you say you have an automobile blog, you can browse your affiliate account in the auto category and choose a campaign to promote. You will find some companies offering lower commissions, but also some with larger ones. Ideally, is to choose a campaign that will be of high interest to your blog visitors.

Also, the campaigns that offer lower commission, will convert better. This is because, in general, these campaigns ($1-$5 commission) implies only an e-mail / zip or address submit, without any obligation for the visitor.

3) Sale of Own Product

If you own a product, such as an e-book, you can make big money promoting your product on your blog. And here it is important to have a niche blog because, as you have an audience interested in a specific field, the greater the conversion rate will be. Of course, for that your blog readers must trust you and be pleased with your articles. To be successful, you must show your readers that you are an expert in the field, so you will convince your audience that your product deserves to be purchased. It also matters a lot how you promote the e-book, but we’ll talk about that in another article.

4) Selling Advertising Space on Your Blog

This is another great way of blog monetization, with pretty good results. The idea is that if you have an interesting blog with enough quality traffic, you can find companies and individuals to give you a certain amount, monthly, for placing a banner on your site. The most common places for banners placements are:

– At the top, a 468×60 sized banner or leaderboard (728×90). Usually for these banners you can ask for more money, because they are positioned at the top of the page and will get many clicks.

– In the sidebar, 125×125 banners. Some banners are already optimized for WordPress themes, but you can find free plugins to help you in this.

– In the context of your articles, or at the bottom. These banners will be the most expensive, because will most likely get high exposure and more clicks.

5) Selling Links

One other effective method, which can bring enough money per month, without you doing anything, is to sell links on your site. Usually you place these links in the sidebar or footer, so they are visible on all pages on the site. Here, the price depends heavily on PageRank you have on the first page of your site, but also on other internal pages. The more you have a higher PageRank, the more money you can ask for a link. Also, the traffic affects the price of a link, but usually, people who buy these links, do it for SEO benefits, and not for the traffic.

6) Sponsored Articles

This method requires a little more effort than the previous one, but is also quite effective. If you have a blog with high traffic and eventually have a pretty good PageRank, you can write sponsored articles, or reviews, for various sites for a fee. The disadvantage is that usually you will have to write that article and get paid only once, unlike selling links that will bring you money every month. There are many bloggers who are willing to write sponsored articles and reviews for very small amounts of money, so be careful to have a competitive price, otherwise you will not make too many sales.

Of course, there are many other ways to monetize your blog, but these are probably among the most efficient you can use.
