Post select content to your site’s main FB page
This is what I do mostly. What happened is that in July 2022 I noticed a slight spike in FB traffic. I took a look at the page insights and noticed that one type of article was getting really good results. By results, I mean shares, likes, and clicks. Interestingly, it was just one type of article out of many that I published on that site.
What I did was I started solely publishing the type of articles that was getting good engagement and a high number of clicks. It worked like crazy. At first, one out of 7 to 10 posts would get 30+ shares and send a nice spike of traffic. However, after a month, one out of two posts were performing well and still are.
This means I no longer post everything to Facebook. I only post the blog content that gets good results. I”m able to fully control this using Meet Edgar. My VA posts the specific posts into Meet Edgar which then posts automatically. Moreover, Meet Edgar recycles these posts so there is always new content hitting my FB wall at the assigned times.
Create micro-targeted Facebook pages
Did you know that you can create multiple Facebook pages for a site? In fact, you can create as many FB pages per site as you want. FB pages are not dependent or contingent on a website or blog.
This means if you have specific sub-topics on your site that work on Facebook, you can create a dedicated page on that topic.
For example, suppose you’re in the food niche but discovered that vegan content does well on FB. You could create a vegan page and post only vegan-oriented content to that page. You could then add on a Group for more engagement.
Boost popular Facebook posts
When you get high engagement for a particular post or piece of content, throw some money at it and boost it. This could get the content much more traction, options, ad revenue and even attract links.
The money materializes in the same way as posting. Boosting sends traffic to your site. In some cases, you may opt to boost to attract more fans so that you can drive more traffic to your website in the future.
Promote other websites and get paid per 1,000 clicks
This Facebook monetization strategy inspired this post in the first place. I love this strategy because the entire process can be outsourced for very little cost and easily generate hundreds or even thousands of dollars every month.
Here’s the deal. There are websites that will pay you to post links/images etc. that link to their site. They typically pay a set rate per 1,000 visitors you send them.
The beauty of this is that these websites provide all the content, usually suggest proven content and they are very good at producing highly engaging content.
If a person only has a small number of Facebook friends they will be unable to spread the word very far – unless they are able to share content so profound that people share it multiple times over, and it becomes viral.
On the other hand, if a person can attract a considerable number of supporters and then engage with them on a regular basis, they will find that their posts will appear in many people’s feeds.
So the best way to ensure that people hear what you have to say is to build your support base up to the extent that they consider you an influencer. When you reach that point, it is easy to make money on Facebook.
There are two ways to blog on Facebook. The first one is through Facebook posts, which works best for short posts. The second way to blog directly on the social channel is through Facebook Notes, which allows you to create simple yet attractive longer blog posts that are easy for your followers to read.
Also, much of this content works in many niches because it’s generic, broad interest stuff a lot of people simply can’t resist clicking.
Operate a Facebook Group (or participate in Groups)
Facebook Groups can be a very powerful tool to make money, whether you charge for access or use as a subtle promotional tool.
You don’t want to blatantly promote to your (or other groups you join), but if you contribute in a meaningful way, other group members will investigate you further and ultimately discover a course you may sell.
While I used to operate a FB Group, it was via Coaching which paid access. I’m not terribly active in other FB groups and don’t promote in them, but I know it’s done and when done well, can be very effective.
I think investing time into FB groups for many niches can pay off big time. I don’t bother but one day I might. I deem it a worthy exercise.
Promote niche products on your e-commerce store
If you’re plugged into the internet marketing community, you’ve no doubt been exposed to promoting niche products to targeted audiences that you sell on an e-commerce store you publish.
This business model started with t-shirts and then expanded into all kinds of niche products.
It’s smart and some folks are absolutely making a killing doing it.
Testing is intensive. Lots of stuff doesn’t work, but it only takes one or a few profitable products to generate enormous profits.
The concept is simple.
Run paid traffic to affiliate promotion landing pages
This is a lot more difficult than it sounds. I’ve never done this successfully but haven’t tried much either.
Basically, you create a landing page that promotes a product with affiliate links. You buy Facebook ad traffic to it and hope the affiliate profits exceed the cost of ads.
This, like all paid traffic, requires quite a bit of testing. Your landing page copy must be outstanding and be able to convert people with no intention to buy anything to buyers.
Pay other pages to promote your site on a CPM basis
This is the inverse of strategy #3 above. In strategy #3 above you get paid to promote various websites from your FB page. This strategy involves you paying other FB pages to promote your website.
Given the CPM you pay is much lower than you would with FB ads, there’s a solid chance you can profit with this traffic.
The hard work lies in you developing highly engaging content and posts and then getting other pages to actually promote your content.
Leverage your page to get new pages going (in related niches)
If you have a large fanbase for one FB page, you can leverage that audience for new sites which can help you grow your new page fast for no cost.
This works best if the niches are related. If the niches are totally unrelated it can backfire because you’ll annoy your audience trying to jam something down their throats that they’re not interested in.
Promote products with affiliate links
You can post affiliate links directly on FB posts. I don’t think it’s a particularly effective way to monetize a FB page, but it can work for some pages and audiences.
Also, when done occasionally promoting something new or very, very cool, it can work.
Next, use the Photos menu to search for sunrise photos. I usually do a mix of Bing and Tumbler images. I’ll also use the FPTraffic Chrome Plugin to find images on Flickr when I have time. I usually find and queue about 100 images.
I think a better method is sending your audience to a well-written piece of content about the product on your website first, or a quiz.
However, we all don’t always have time for that and so the best you can do to bring new products to your audience’s attention is to post an affiliate link directly on your page.
Leverage your ninja Facebook skills by selling Facebook services/consulting
If you get very good at using Facebook for any particular task or promotion, be it buying ads, posting highly engaging posts, etc. you can sell your ninja skills or offer to consult that helps other businesses learn your skills. You can also create and sell a course.
How You Can Earn
The simplest method you can use to earn money from your Facebook page is by promoting Affiliate Networks. Another method of earning money from Facebook is video ads or Ad Break.

Once you understand your PLR usage rights, you can repackage and make money from it.
Before Panda struck in February 2011, PLR products were popular, and many marketers and bloggers used them to generate content for their sites.
In other words, PLR products are pre-written content that you can claim as your own without incurring any legal action.
In the past, you could start a new site, download a few PLR articles and publish them for your audience. But the game has changed.
Duplicate content is a serious violation of Google’s terms and could get your site penalized.
However, you can still make money from private label rights as a blogger. If you’re a new/beginner blogger, you can leverage other people’s products.
Creating an information product (e.g., ebooks) from scratch is difficult. If you’re new to blogging you may not have the experience required. Worse, imagine after all the hard work creating the product, no one buys it.
Pages on Facebook have amassed millions of followers and once a page has a significant number of followers, the moderator of the page may want to monetize the page. If you wish to earn money from your Facebook page, you need to prepare for this in advance. This is because it takes a long time to build followers for a page and to gain popularity through content. There are thousands of pages on Facebook competing with each other purely on the quality of content. Once you have gained enough followers, you can earn money from your Facebook page by posting sponsored content from brands in exchange for money or even selling your own products to the followers of the page. If you intend to eventually sell products or services through your page, make sure you post relevant content while gaining page followers.
Content creators who produce original video content on Facebook can now monetize their videos by inserting paid or sponsored ads in their videos.
