Can I make money on Facebook?
This question is one that is asked by a lot of entrepreneurs and others I will attempt to answer this question, having had some experience with Facebook
Facebook has over 1 billion active members using the social platform each day, There quite a few social media sites but Facebook is the largest and most popular social media site to date.
It would be easy to assume that because of the size of the audience it would be very to earn money on Facebook, but this is not so.
There is a lot of competition with others trying to capture a piece of the market, and not every post is shown in a user Facebook post. So not many of those who follow you will see your post. Only 2% of your followers will see your post.
Facebook wants you to “boost” your post by paying for a Facebook ad to have your post reach more of the people who “liked” your page.
But you can make some money using Facebook free traffic, we will look at how this can be done.
Choose Your Area Of Interest
It is important that before you start earning through Facebook, you must pick your niche first.
This will allow you to focus in one direction, in this way If your focus on your niche, you will get to know your audience, and they will get to know you

Choose An Affiliate Program
The next step is to find an affiliate, there are many affiliate networks like ShareASale’s, .which represent many companies, you are almost sure to find a company with the products you are interested
This type of online business is called online marketing, or affiliate marketing, ( you can find more details on affiliate marketing here.)
Affiliate Marketing as stated by Wikipedia is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts
A commission is earned by someone who clicks on your affiliate link which takes them to the product or service and if they buy the product or anything else you will earn a commission.
When choosing your affiliate program be sure to choose products that are relevant to your niche.
Be sure to promote a product you have confidence in. Promoting products that you love and have tried will make it easier to promote them.
If you have not tried the product yourself, but have done your research on the product and you are confident the product is all it said to be then it is ok to promote that product but remember your reputation is on the line.
You must keep in mind that your goal is to meet the needs of your potential customers.
To achieve this goal, you must understand your target audience first. You must learn what they need or want.
To get an idea of the needs of your audience The best way to go about this is by creating a customer profile. You can get an idea by using the Google Analytics tool.
You can also ask your audience what they want by way of surveys, emails, and comments from your blog posts.
Selecting A product
Always keep in the forefront when selecting a product, the product quality,
Never forget the quality of the product you’re promoting because this will affect not only your income but also the level of trust your audience will have in you.
If you have not used the product yourself be sure to check the reviews Take note of their return rate. If it is high, it’s likely that they are of low quality.
When choosing your affiliate program, I know we are tempted to choose high commission but. Keep in mind that higher commission rates don’t always mean the products are better.
Some products may offer higher commissions but are difficult to market. Here is a statement by one of our founders regarding high ticket item
If you are going to go the route of “high ticket affiliate marketing, make sure that you are promoting products with VALUE and that people are exchanging their money, for a true value product/service. Like a fridge. Like a watch. Like something legitimate.”

To get more free traffic you can also join a Facebook group or start one yourself.
There are many groups advertising for members, just chose the one that represents your niche, you can have a look through and see what the members are like, and just what the rules are
Start your own group
To start a group yourself, it’s easy, If you already have a Facebook Page, Facebook is asking you if you’d like to have a group to go along with it. You can start a group easily following these steps.
Go to your Facebook Page and click on the More menu icon at the far right under your cover photo. Choose Create Group. If you don’t have a page, use the arrow down (upside-down triangle) at the very top right of the Facebook menu bar, and select Create Group. and follow the instructions provided, you can set your own rules.
