1. Promote your blog posts:
When you post something on your blog, you definitely need traffic on that post to earn money. Whether you have embedded affiliate links in it or you have monetized your blog, the bottom line is that you need traffic.
Now tell me what better way it is to promote your blog for free then posting it on Facebook? If you have a Facebook page or an account where your post gets a decent number of engagements then you can benefit from it.
Just take the link of your blog post, and post it on Facebook. You can post an attractive picture or write some catchy lines with the link. This way, whoever sees that link, may try to visit it, and that’s how you will get traffic on your blog. And ultimately you will make money from it.
The aforementioned way of earning is to post links to your blog post on your Facebook’s page or account. But what if you boost your post through the Facebook ad? This way you will be getting a lot of traffic to your site from around the Facebook and especially from an audience which is interested in reading your blog posts.
That way you can earn a decent amount of money if you have monetized your websites. But the question is, which post should be boosted? Well, the answer is simple, whichever post of yours gets more engagement, boost that one.
Why? Because people have found that post more interesting, and if you boost that post in an audience which is interested in the genre of that post then you will definitely get a massive traffic towards your blog.
And not only that, you may also secure some fans for your blog. People may become your regular readers and start to comment on your posts or maybe share them. This way you will get even more engagement and traffic.
3. Promote other websites to get paid per 1000 clicks:
With this strategy, you can make tons of money if your Facebook page has a decent audience and people interact with your posts. What you need to do is promote the content of other websites on your Facebook page by posting their images, links etc.
And when you will do so, people on your page will visit that link. Once you have generated 1000 visitors to that website, you will earn a decided amount for 1000 visits. Every website has their own rates for 1000 visits.
But let’s suppose you get 8 dollars per 1000 visits. Now imagine, if you send 10 thousand visitors per post, then you get 80 dollars by just promoting one post, you can make thousands of dollars per month. This is one of the easiest ways of earning on Facebook.
You don’t have to work on anything besides managing your page. The content will be provided by the website you are promoting, you just need to post their link and that’s all.
4. Generate Leads through Facebook:
Another amazing way to make money on Facebook. You can build an email list of leads and then either you can use that list to promote your own affiliate products.
Or you can sell that list to different people. But the real question is that how you can build your email list? Well, there are 3 popular ways that I know of and all of them are quite effective.
The first one is that you can create optin forms on your Facebook page. And people interested in what your page has to offer will put their emails on your created optin page. That’s how you will get their email.
Secondly, you can post the links to your blog or website where people will be asked to enter their emails in exchange for some offers that you will provide to them as an ethical bribe.
Thirdly, you can create landing pages and advertise those pages through Facebook ads. This is the most effective way of generating leads. Your ad will be seen by the people who are interested in the offer your landing page is giving to them and you will capture their email addresses.
5. Promote quizzes by attaching affiliate offer at end
You can also sell affiliate products by inviting people to play quizzes through Facebook and changing their mind about a product through quiz related to that product. And when they finish the quiz, they will find an affiliated link for a product which they saw in the quiz.
That way, there is a high possibility that they may buy that product. For instance, if there is a kitchen appliance that you want to sell as an affiliate. You can design a quiz pertaining to a kitchen appliances. And in that quiz, you can include that particular kitchen appliance that you want to sell.
You can portray that product as the best product among other products in that quiz. And by the end of that quiz, the person may buy that product and you will get your affiliate commission.
6. Operate Facebook Group or Participate in Facebook Groups
Facebook groups are very powerful in making money on Facebook. You can contribute to a particular thing through Facebook groups in a meaningful way.
And when people will be benefited from your contribution then they will definitely investigate you. Once they come to know that you are selling a whole course or a solution to the problem that you contributed towards solving, they may buy that course from you.
For instance, IF you sale a course of SEO through Facebook and you notice that there is a post in a related group regarding a problem about SEO.
You can give a solution for that problem and when people, inspired by your answer, go to your profile, they will see that you sell a whole course about SEO. People may buy that course from you.
7. Promote your E-Commerce store’s niche products:
One of the best way to make money on Facebook is by promoting your e-commerce products on it. You can offer the products to the audience of Facebook in which they are highly interested. This way you will be able to increase your sale by just running an ad on Facebook.
The business model actually started through the sale of T-shirts and then expanded to more products. You can sell any product which is in demand on Facebook. The key element is that you find low-cost products on sites like Alibaba.com and then resell them through your e-commerce store.
For example, if you find a fishing product that is very cheap, you can put it on your e-commerce store with the addition of your profit. And then, you can run an ad of that product on Facebook targeting the audience having an interest in fishing. This way you can increase your sales and make plenty of money.
8. Run paid traffic to landing pages with affiliate links
This is a bit of arduous method of making money on Facebook because it requires a bit of testing. But once you are successful in creating a landing page which does conversions, you can earn a lot. Basically, you need to create an attractive landing page with an affiliate link to a product.
After that, you need to run an ad containing the link to that landing page. And if you target a right audience, you may get conversions which will result in your affiliate commission.
Firstly, you will need to do testing with a different type of ads to find out an ad which is getting a decent number of visits to your landing page.
Then you need to do testing with landing pages to create a landing page which results in conversions.
9. Pay other Facebook pages on CPM basis to promote your website
This strategy is basically the inverse of strategy number 3. In that strategy, you were getting paid to promote various other websites. But in this strategy, you will be paying other Facebook pages to promote your content.
You can offer a set amount of money per 1000 visits and make others promote your posts. This will result in organic traffic to your blog and that will make you money by monetization, affiliate etc.
You may even get permanent visitors through this method if your posts are engaging and informative. The only thing that you need to do here is to create a quality content that attracts customers to read completely so that they may come to your blog in future too.

Another direct but effective approach. Instead of offering people to buy from your affiliate link through indirect ways like blogging or landing pages, you can directly put your affiliate link out there through the Facebook ad.
