The query of how to make money with Facebook is stirring up all over the web. Reason being, Facebook is not only the most widespread social media outlet on the planet right now, but in the past month if you check on Alexa.com you will notice that not once, but TWICE – Facebook passed Google in world wide traffic for the first time – making them the most popular website on the internet.
Do you not feel like doing a little dance? Congratulations Facebook – you’ve beat down the man – twice, in a month – & no other site has done that for 5 years. therefore the question becomes – what does all this mean to your business – & from what source can one literally make money with Facebook?
Before I get into the ‘how’ it is important to understand the reason Facebook even surpassed Google – & the reason is simple: more & more folks are utilizing the web as a social means. People do not have time to spend a few hours with neighbors at the coffee shop all the time anymore – hence instead, they’re hanging out on Facebook, many times multi-tasking as they are working their day job!
Consequently if that is the reason WHY individuals are on Facebook – then it is easy to discover HOW to make money with Facebook. You have to be social! I notice folks all the time doing this completely backwards. They are out there on Facebook spamming their affiliate links and multi-level marketing biz opp links on everyone’s Facebook wall praying that someone will click on the link and just ‘automatically’ buy their affiliate products or join their multi-level marketing opportunity. What’s the difficulty here? that is not even remotely social! If you are trying to make money on a social network, you cannot just be the sales person that keeps throwing ‘stuff’ on the wall & hoping some of it will stick. (Pardon the expression).
The good part is, you can be social on Facebook without even having a million friends – or even thousands of friends for that matter. I only have around 400 friends & use Facebook as a profit generating machine – I just do it completely differently than most other people. The key is to provide valuable facts to people rather than simply coming out and trying to hustle them something. For example, if you are a member of a multi-level marketing group on Facebook, instead of posting your biz opp links on the Wall, post a ‘how-to’ video or content on something you are good at in the network marketing industry. Perhaps it is sponsoring – maybe it’s having the right mindset, or being tenacious & not stopping until you make it. Whatever it is, post it on the Facebook Wall there & allow people the opportunity to ‘get to know you’ by means of your article or video before you jump right out & sell them on your business.
Think about it – when you find affiliate links all over your Facebook Wall or a Facebook group you are a part of, do you ever feel tempted to click or purchase anything from that person? If you’re anything like me, you are no doubt just totally annoyed that someone spammed your wall or your group wall and you click the little ‘x’ to remove the spam and block the user. right? that’s what I do. consequently to make money on Facebook – do not be that person – be the one that stands out from the spammy mess.
