0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Facebook is a social networking website. Each user creates a personal profile, adds other users as friends, and exchanges messages on the site. Facebook users must register before using the site and this involves entering detailed information about themselves (age, sex, likes, dislikes, hobbies etc). The service has over 600 million active users. This service was not designed for commercial transactions but the vast numbers of users together with some unique characteristics allow the savvy business person to use the platform to generate revenue. If you have a home based business and are thinking of adding another source of revenue then you should consider using Facebook as source of income. This article gives an overview of how to make money using Facebook. Follow the simple steps and you will be able to count yourself among those who have achieved home business success using the Internet.

If you are familiar with Facebook, you will have noticed the sponsored ads on the side of your profile. You are meant to notice them because this is how Facebook generates income. They charge individual advertisers a small fee every time someone clicks on their ad. This is where you come in. The opportunity exists for you to create an advert for someone’s product and post this advert to Facebook. You, like Facebook itself, will be paid a fee every time someone clicks on the advert. Humans are consumers and 600 million users are a whole lot of consumers. Every user wants something and your objective is to find something that many people want, and advertise it. The reason Facebook is such a good platform for this, lies in the information contained in the profile pages of Facebook users. This data can be accessed and it enables you to precisely target your market using simple Facebook tools. Beautiful!

When you decide to enter this particular work area you will become what is called an affiliate marketer. This article outlines the steps you need to take to become a successful affiliate marketer on Facebook. The steps are as follows:

1.     Find an Attractive Product to Advertise.

This is easily done using special service sites created for the purpose. Copeac, Paydotcom and Click2Sell are three such sites. These are free to join and each provides thousands of products which seek to be advertised. You sign up to one of these sites, choose a product and click “Promote” under it on the site. You will be given a URL for this product and every time someone buys the article via your URL you get paid.

2.     Create an Advert for Your Chosen Product

This is a technical aspect of the process. You may need to enlist a website designer to construct a page that is appealing, grabs the attention of your targeted user and gets them to click. Behind this ad you also need a landing page. This is the page to which the user is directed when they click on your ad. It is the page from which the customer places an order. Your designer will help with this as well. You can find designers on ScriptLance. They will bid for your job and it should cost no more than $30.

3.     Promote Your Advert on Facebook

Your advert will target the market you have defined. This is achieved by specifying to the Facebook ad platform exactly who you need the ad to go to (female, 25-40, attends gym, exercises regularly etc) Log into Facebook and click on “Ads and Pages”. Under “Applications” click “Create an Ad”. Enter your URL and specify the audience you want to target. You may want to create multiple ads for different audiences so that you can compare results from the different groups. Post your adverts and wait to assess the results. Facebook measures your click through rates and other stats for your adverts. These are all easily accessed in real time.

When you have completed all of the above steps, all that remains is to bank the money as it comes in. If you run a small business and you are looking for some extra cash then Facebook could offer exactly what you are looking for. Embark on each of the above steps, begin banking money and you will be able to count yourself among those who have achieved home business success using the Internet.
