How to Make Money on Facebook

Many of us would love to increase our revenue through working from home. One of the best ways to do this is by creating some form of income via the internet. There are many tools and programs available as well as means to create this income, but I would like to focus on Facebook specifically.

One of the top ways that you can make money online is by using Facebook to in your marketing campaigns to sell and promote different products. If you use Facebook to help you in your quest to make money, you will find that it is one of the best tools at your disposal.

In order to start making money on Facebook, you need to have some kind of business or product you want to promote. You can have a simple business selling things you do not need any more from your house (similar to eBay or Craigslist), or you can have a complex and comprehensive online retail business with your own product line that you buy in bulk or create yourself. Whatever kind of business you want to start, you can use Facebook as a marketing platform.

Once you have created your business, you should create a website for your business. It can be a basic website that provides information on what you are selling, the benefits for purchasing the product or service in question, and contact information for any questions they might have.. If you can create a merchant account as well, you can receive payments online, which will assist you in increasing your income.
Once your website is up and running, create a Facebook account or fan page specifically for your website or business. Enter the relevant information about your business, and finish creating your Facebook account.

Start looking around on Facebook, adding friends and expanding your network. The more people you can get to join your network, the larger your chances of turning them into clients for your business will be. Be friendly with people, talk to them, get to know them, and hold off on marketing yourself. You can look for other groups or networks of people with similar interests or hobbies as the product or service you are selling, targeting the friends you acquire.

Once you have a large network of friends, you should start posting promotional materials on your Facebook page for your business. You can post links to your landing page in your comments or signature, you can add a link to your business in your profile section, or you can provide a link to an interesting article you read that talks about your product and provides a link to your website.

The more friends you have, the greater the chances that you will direct traffic towards your website via Facebook. The more traffic you have, the greater the potential you have to make money via sales of your product. Because these friends were found through research and similar groups, they will be targeted traffic, which also increases your chances of converting them into a sale.

Facebook has over 600 million registered users around the world, and millions of people in the U.S. alone log in to their Facebook page every day. Learning to use Facebook to help you make money is one of the best things that you can do, and will help you to increase your earnings.
