How can I $$$ on my Facebook groups?

11 replies
I'm very new to IM.

I have two Facebook groups. One that targets drawing artists (2200 members) and one that targets backpackers/travelers (4000 members).

I would like to someone make even pocket change with these groups but I don't know where to start.

Can I please have some hints, tips, or referrals to other literature/posts that can help me?

Thanks!

      Something you might consider that a lot of people are doing is Teespring t-shirts. Do some clever ones that these niches would enjoy wearing. It is getting pretty good Conversions on FB

        I can attest to this. As a current math major, I've seen a few advertisements pop up in my feed with really cool math shirts. The most recent was a "pi day" shirt. Really cool stuff. I would've made a purchase if I wasn't saving to invest in my own business.

        Have you researched different products with affiliate programs that are available within each of these niches? Do you have a good relationship with your group members and do they see you as an authority figure or leader in your niche somehow? Do you have your own Website or have you created mailing lists for each of these niches?

        These are some of the questions you should answer before starting to monetize your FB groups.

    The TeeSpring suggestion is a solid one.

    I grow and utilize FB groups (and many other social platforms) in a big way.

    My suggestions:

    1. Grow them. Forget pocket change. Get your butt to 10K, then 25K, then 50K. At around 40K to 50K you'll see relatively decent money and you can grow the member volumes rapidly at this point, too.

    2. Don't monetize. Share information. Think of the platform. They aren't members to buy; they're members to receive and share information. Monetize your website sharing that information and also integrate a newsletter.

    Rushed reply (in a meeting) but use the above advice and thank me later.

    Pin a top post with a list of recommendations / affiliate links / or your own product.

    You could also put a list to a squeeze page to get them on your list.

    Once they are on your list, then it's up to you where to go from there.

    You had only 5k around members, but do you know many are really interested for your group?

    If you can make more than 25k members, then drive traffic to your blog from the page for making money.

    I own a page on traveler that has only 900 likes, but still not yet made any pennies.

    Best thing to do is to build a list from them in exchange of a their email (and don't forget to monetize the list by an OTO)

    When we set up our affiliate program, one of the features we got was a simple one click placement of an ad on your facebook account. Now we just need to get more products

    Your FB group is your list, you can make money from that. Just give them valuable information first to brand your name. Make some quiz to attract enggamenet on facebook as a bonusess you can give them PLR product related to your niche every week on in the beginning I think no problem. Then you can do it every to make to make money profit from your group

    The very special things that i like from facebook group is mosly somebody take a look every post on group. It's defferent than Fanspage, just one post mostly look at.

    It means, your advertise is never gone. Hhe

    Did you see the JVZOO? I am sure there are many affiliate link there. You should put the affiliate link in your FB group. If someone buy anything by clicking on your link, you will get the commission. Beside the JVZOO, there are many affiliate sites available, you can use any of them.
