2. Affiliate Marketing:

Affiliate Marketing is the process of promoting or selling products that don’t belong to you, but to an individual or company. In Affiliate Marketing, you earn a commission on every sale you make.

In some offers, you earn not only by the customer buying, but when he or she subscribes to the Vendor or Merchant list.

In this case, you can register as an affiliate at many affiliate websites like Jvzoo, Rakuten Linkshare, CJ Affiliate, Share A Sale and many other affiliate websites and promote their products either on your page or wall by just sharing your affiliate links and when anybody makes a purchase through your link you get paid.

With this, you can share stuff like Electronic Gadgets, Fashion stuff like sneakers, dresses and many others. When you post a picture or something like a video, Or you can even post a video or Image purposely to promote these products you want to promote as an affiliate.

Some of these networks pay through MTN Mobile Money, PayPal, Bank Transfers, Payoneer, Western Union and many more.

3. Sell Likes & Shares :

When your contents reach a large audience anytime you post. You may be getting offers from individuals and companies wanting you to promote their offers. Some can be drop-shippers, wanting you to promote their online stores and other websites. 

With this, there are no struggles, all you need to do is to fix a price with them whiles they provide you with the stuff or work they want you to get done. 

After that you get paid, Lot’s people charge their advertisers in different ways, or they go in agreement in different ways, It’s just like the way all contracts all not the same.

You can charge them according to the likes and shares their posts will get. This sounds easy, All you got to do is to build your online presence and all will be added to you…

4. Sell Stuff On Facebook Marketplace Or Groups:

Another powerful way to earn money from using Facebook is by selling stuff on the Facebook marketplace. It’s simple and easy if you do it in the right and appropriate way. You just have to share your stuff and wait for orders and purchases.

You would be asking yourself what if I have no product to sell to others. Here you can get into Drop-shipping or Affiliate Marketing. 

Drop-shipping is a streamlined form of retail business where the seller accepts customer orders but does not keep goods sold items in stock. Instead, in a form of supply chain management, it transfers the orders and their shipment details to either the manufacturer, a wholesaler, another retailer, or a fulfilment house, which then ships the goods directly to the customer. 

So here you need not have an item to sell. All you require is an online store that you will be referring to people who are interested in the product you shared, so they make purchases.

But with Affiliate Marketing as said above you require not have any store or website. You can have them if you want, so you will be referring them to your website to make a purchase and start earning.

You can also choose to promote a product by just sharing links and posting images and writing a bit of info that will make people curious to check the product out.

5. Sell Facebook Pages or Account:

You might have heard about this, If not you can also make money from Facebook by selling Facebook pages that already have lots of likes and followers. You can grow these pages for them to get lots of likes at least 10k Likes or followers and then sell to people like upcoming musicians, comedians, and others.

After the person purchases the Page, you just transfer it to him by linking him as an admin of the page. And then he blocks you from accessing the Page, After that he becomes the main admin of the page and then the deal is done.

As I said above you can also sell Facebook accounts too, There are people with a Facebook account that got lots of followers and get at least 1K Likes anytime you make a post. Because of the large number of audience.

Just like how people sell Instagram accounts, the same way you can also sell Facebook accounts too.
