The quickest way to make money on Facebook or let me say online in general is affiliate marketing. No matter what industry you’re in, you can never miss a products to promote today and get some commission upon sale of the product.

Next, instead of spamming links on Facebook or Twitter and hoping for the best, keep in mind that the most honest and effective way of promoting affiliate products is through reviews.

If you personally use a product and like it, and know that your followers serve to benefit from it, then write a long-form review on your blog, and share why you like the product. Don’t be afraid to talk about what you like and don’t like about it. You can even use video if that’s more your style.

Also make sure to disclose your affiliate relationships. This is a legal requirement in most cases, but it’s also “best practice.” Your readers or viewers will appreciate your honesty.

The one thing you should never do is posting affiliate links directly on Facebook. Otherwise Facebook will bane your page!

2. Creating and promoting your own information product

The second way to make money on Facebook is to promote your own product. If you already have a blog, and you’ve demonstrated your expertise on a specific subject over a period of time, there may be an opportunity to create an E-book, audio program or video course and sell it to your audience. Social media is the perfect place to promote such a product, more specially Facebook.

Even if you do not have a budget to build your own website you can host your product on platforms like Amazon’s KDP  which makes it easy for you to publish and sell your PDF, MP3 or video file at a price of your choose.

This happens to be my best on how to make money on Facebook. If you take extra care in creating great information, designing and promoting it well on Facebook or any other social platform, you will definitely see more sales.

There are many opportunities for you to share sponsored posts that promote the products and services of other businesses. This is a very direct way of earning money from social media.

But, if you don’t have a sizable following, this may not be much of an opportunity. You also have to beware of over-promoting products for want of money, because if your followers see that you’re constantly tweeting about one product or another, not only will they not click on the links, they will also un-follow you.

It’s important to mix things up. It’s wise to take the time to craft a proper social media posting schedule, to make sure you’re adding value to your followers while promoting products. Calls to action should definitely be a part of your social media strategy, but every post can’t be a call to action.

4. The power of visual media to promote your crafts.

If you tend to create handmade crafts, art pieces, or even articles of clothing and knitting, there may be an opportunity to showcase your products on social media. Instagram and Pinterest may seem like obvious places to hit, but Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are also great channels for sharing visual media.

If you have an Etsy account, you can direct your followers to check out your products there, and between the different channels, you have the potential to make a good living. This is not my favorite but if you fall under this category, I thing this is the best way for you to make money on Facebook.

5. Promoting your coaching or consulting service

I know building a popular YouTube channel can be a lot of work. But if you already have a following, or you’re determined to build your audience, joining the YouTube Partner Program to make money on advertising might be a path worth exploring.

I have seen some prominent YouTube content creators who have made have made if not millions but thousands of Dollars with this program. It would take a lot of time, strategy and sheer luck to make money on YouTube. However, this is a good thing to keep in mind with advertising in general.
