How to Monetize Your Social Media Account

1. Market Your Best Skills

When you are looking to make money on social media, it’s important to identify your skills and use them to attract your ideal audience.

The idea here is to impress your audience to a level where they would buy your products or help you generate revenue through sharing your videos because they like them.

For instance, if you feel like you can make some really cool videos, then use this skill and post those videos on social media platforms, like Facebook or YouTube.

Discover your strengths and weaknesses, and use the best skill and sell it through amazing content on such social media.

When people like your creativity and ideas, they share it with their friends, spreading your art through the same social networking platforms.

When you have good content, people will always come back.

2. Become A Social Media Influencer

Becoming a successful social media influencer is the hot new trend right now, which means there is already a ton of competition.

You will notice that there are many influencers present on Instagram and Facebook, who are increasing their followers day by day and are also earning a lot through the different types of content they talk about, whether through a picture or the caption.

While it may appear an easy task, don’t just opt for it because you assume it’s easy.

It requires a lot of time and hard work to come up with great creative ideas, put them in the picture, and click interesting images that would attract your audience to come back again.

That is the kind of art people are interested in.

This pulls you back every time and forces them to click the follow button.

If you feel that you have it in you to start an Instagram blog or become an influencer who could make a difference, you must go for it.

Here are a few things you can talk about being an influencer.

You can talk about spreading positivity, you can talk about fashion and styling, and you can even review books or movies and talk about the best reads of the year.

Influencing, in itself, has a broad range of options that you can choose from.

You can choose any topic that you would like to work on; it could be you talking about your life, showing people how to design your house, or even reviewing food that you eat from different restaurants.

You can choose depending on which is your strength, and then utilizing it to create something beautiful.

Further Explanation


Let’s discuss this in detail.

Note you can only earn this way if you upload videos on Facebook and they are more than 90 seconds.

This type of Facebook Monetization Strategy is called Facebook In-stream Ad.

Facebook also has its eligibility requirement to be able to monetize your videos:

1. You must have at least 10,000 followers.

2. You must have uploaded up to 5 active videos on your page.

To get started with In-stream ads:

1. Upload your Video on Facebook via Creator Studio

2. Select your video language.

3. Choose where you want the ad to be placed in your video

4. Click publish

And you’re all set up and ready to start earning from your videos.

3. Try influencer marketing

Brands love influencer marketing because it gives them a level of visibility and credibility that they often can’t hope to achieve by themselves. Although attracting the advertising pounds of big brand isn’t easy, building a large community of engaged followers around a clearly defined niche will go a long way. Once you can build up a reputation as an authority in your niche, it’s quite likely that companies will start coming to you to advertise their products and services.

4. Sell Your Products And Services

Use social media to connect with people interested in purchasing products you have to offer.

You can sell your services there and earn a pretty good amount of money.

This is also a great time to look into influencer marketing.

Make sure that you present your products and services most creatively and interestingly.

You can use the Facebook live feature to show your product in real to the people who could become your potential buyers.

If you are a home-based business, for instance, you belong to the catering business, then you should display all your products and services on your page in an excellent way, making your content appealing for the eyes of the visitors.

Affiliate marketing is where an affiliate promotes another person’s product or company through their own marketing channels.

This is basically the way I earned money using my Facebook Page.

I will try to explain how it works in the simplest terms:

You become an affiliate of a Company.

You bring in customers for them. These companies in turn, give you a certain commission for a particular number of people you refer.

This will be relatively easy for you because you have a lot of followers following your page that you can easily refer to your affiliated company.

Note: Your niche must be somewhat related to the company you’re affiliated with.

For example if your page is about Technology and you’re trying to market a health product to them. It is not likely going to work out, because your page followers are not interested in health posts/products.
