Social Media has been growing its network stronger us for quite some time now. We are constantly checking our news feed for updates and are most of the time ‘online’. This opens up a great platform to make some legit money from social media. Without any further ado, let’s get into the ways through which you make money with social media:
1. Promote Products
You can always promote useful products on your social media account. It is important to realize that you need to promote products which are genuinely good in quality. DO not promote something just for the sake of it because that will hamper the trust that your audiences have in you.
Try promoting the right products to the right group of people. For example: If you want to promote a laptop brand on facebook then join a group where there are constant discussions about buying the right laptop so that you can promote the product at the right place. Although I recommend you do not spam on any group and follow their rules(if they have any).
Promote things that would be interesting and useful to the group rather than something very mainstream. It should be something which you have used earlier and it solved a problem for you so you ended up sharing it with others. You can join various affiliate programs which include the Amazon Affiliate program. It is great for promoting products from Amazon and you could use the affiliate ID in order to make money.
2. Promote a Website
Social media is the best way to promote your website which will in turn, make you money. If you have a niche specific blog then promote your posts and pages in relevant groups and forums in order to get some attention to your site.
This would not only increase your site traffic but would also have people talking about it and create a buzz about your website in the group where you post all the interesting things that you write on your website. Try creating engaging and useful content so that people instantly love your site and want to read more information and stay longer on your website.
The more interesting and fresh your content, the better are your chances on getting some targeted audience. This is a really interesting way in which you could promote your website and it may look a bit far fetched but it actually works!
Making videos that go viral has become a big deal these days. Everyone wants to create some entertaining video content that would go viral and in turn, make a lot of ad revenue from youtube. Even though getting there might take time, but starting aYouTube channel can be your first step towards online money making.
Initially, the subs and the views are going to be fairly less but once you get some considerable fan following, the numbers just keep increasing over time and you might even end up with a silver play button. The amount you earn on YouTube is based on the views and that will increase with time.
However, making YouTube videos require a lot of creativity and good editing from your side. You need to keep posting videos regularly in order to see some massive increase in the number of views. There are famous Youtubers who make a full-time income off their videos and that could be you if you have the patience and put in the much-needed effort.
4. Promote your products
If you have your own products which could be handicrafts or any kind of essential oils or other handmade stuff which actually works and would be useful then you could go ahead and promote that online. If you even have an online store, social media is the best way to promote the products that you manufacture.
You can even invest in Facebook and twitter ads in order to promote your products to a specific group. There have been a lot of times when I have personally bought products after viewing such ads so you do have a really good chance of selling your products online.
It is important to even promote it to the right people. You are given the option of selecting the target audience for your ads and when you do it right, you are most certain to make money without any hassle. Promoting your own products can be a great way of making money online and if you have had any prior experiences on it then do share them in the comment section below.
Pinning down pictures from your blog posts or even promoting products on Pinterest can really help you out since people usually try shopping looks and various other items on Pinterest. People tend to pin pictures of items that they wish to buy and later they will make a purchase once they have made their final selection.
If you want to make some money through social media then get started on Pinterest because it is one of the best ways to make money and you can even promote your blog. All you need to do is pin an image and create boards that are visible to others. Once someone finds an image which is relevant to their needs they would go through the image link and visit the product page.
If you haven’t used Pinterest yet, then I recommend that you check it out and start using it as frequently as possible since it is one of the best ways for targeting the right audience for your products.
6. Social Media Writer
Writing good content and posts on Social Media can also get you in a job where you actually get paid for doing so. There are many companies that are now active on Social Media and they need people who will handle their social media accounts.
So, if you are really interested in writing and are creative enough then get started by getting some fan following out there. It might be a slow process initially but once you have started gaining some momentum people would look into your work and you never know you might end up getting a great job.
