How to Monetize your Facebook Page

Having a Facebook page that generates a huge following for your business or enterprise is not enough today. Much can be done with a Facebook page from being a tool to communicate with clients to become a money magnet.

People often create these pages for their sake. Nevertheless, some people concentrate on a particular concept and keep building traffic until they can make money out of the page.

You will need to have a Facebook account to create a Facebook page.

Imagine how much traffic you can drive to your business or initiative with a Facebook page.

Celebrities, politicians, musicians, and non-profits leverage Facebook pages to carry out fundraising, campaigns or just to get a following using the Facebook page target advertisement tab.

Here are some ways to monetize your Facebook page and get the best out of it.

1. Sell your affiliate products and services 

Affiliate marketing refers to selling products or services on behalf of a company in return for a commission.

You do not have to be a customer of that company to be an affiliate. You can just sign up with a company that provides affiliate programs and begins promoting their products on your page and when people buy the products through your affiliate link, you earn a commission.

One example of an affiliate program is the A2 Hosting affiliate program. You get to purchase web hosting at a discount if you purchase through my affiliate link here.

2. Sell digital products 

Digital products refer to products that can be sold virtually. They come in digital form and can be downloaded from the internet.

They include software, EBooks, Audio Files and Music production software, games, photography, and video.

Digital products are usually easy to manage, less expensive to create, and easy to market on a Facebook page.

3. Create a Sponsored post

Sponsored posts are articles a page owner is paid to publish on their own Facebook page by companies, businesses, and brands related to the page niche or topic.

The posts can be written by the page owner or the sponsoring brand itself and shared on the Facebook page.

It’s more of a native ad although native ads encompass more than sponsored posts.

4. Add a paid subscription to your Facebook page

Fan subscriptions allow the audience that cares most about your Facebook page to directly fund it through monthly recurring payments that you set.

 Supporters can be identified by special badges in comments and rewarded with perks like exclusive content and discounts.

A paid subscription is best for pages with large and active following including those that are suitable for advertisers.

5. Promote local events in your area.

Identify trending events around your location and promote them for cash on your Facebook page. It will help you get more traffic and get noticed.

Use your event hashtag every time you get.

It will also be a great opportunity to work with outside brands who will be willing to collaborate with your brand.

6. Offer freelance services on your page.

Being a freelancer is a type of self-employment that is carried out on a flexible basis. You may decide to work or not.

Your Facebook page is an ideal platform for you to offer freelance services in exchange for cash. If you’re an expert in any field such as accounting, you can offer freelance services as a financial consultant or even provide tips on your Facebook page.

Companies and businesses are always looking for freelancers to work on their projects and having a Facebook page gets you noticed.

Freelance skills in demand include: coding, translating, graphic designing, website building, blog writing, and photography.


Having a Facebook page that is redundant is not healthy at all. I hope with these few tips, you borrowed a leaf. Leave your comments below.
