    Pin posts at the top (as mentioned above).

    Add a link to:

    1. A sales funnel of affiliate products or your own.
    2. An opt-in form.

    You should be able to find some sort of recurring commission affiliate product, due to the niche you're in.

      Offer advertising space as a pinned post for a small fee?

    Add me group? Group to find more facebook friends? Does that mean everyone who joins the group gets invited to be a friend by all the other members? Or is it the other way around? The new member invites the other members to accept their friend requests? I thought the limit is 5,000 Facebook friends or is that fans?

    I every group I've ever been in, there are no affiliate links allowed by the members. They are only supposed to discuss and share ideas that help each other with whatever the group is about. The only one who gets to announce product offers would be the group's owner/admin so if your group is about getting more Facebook freinds then you should find a product that helps your group do that.

    Why do they want more friends? Do they also want to monetize their Facebook pages? If so, then find a product that offers Facebook Pages and apps that attract more friends or fans. I make Facebook apps for fun if you want to learn how to make your own.

    As far as i know, Facebook groups are as good as useless. You practically can't make substantial stuff out of it like fanpage

    1. Add an Opt-in page link
    2. Promote a CPA Offer
    3. Look for affiliate product at Clickbank, Paydotcom, etc and promote it to them
    4. Create an Amazon/Adsense blog page and share the link in the group whenever you make a post.
    5. The list goes on...

    1. Have a Cover image with a Call to Action. On mine I have "Click this Dot to see why I'm smiling" then they see my image description/biz offer.
    2. Have a description for your group cover image with your biz op in the description and link
    3. Post events to webinars, sales, etc...
    4. Pin a post to the top with something interesting to that group. I find that pinning a free offer to "help" them with their biz is the best thing for marketing groups.

    Hope this helps

    Another great option and easy money is to find what they are passionate about.
    Then I would create a "group" T-Shirt and sell to them using teespring or fabrily.

    Hope this helps! Good Luck

    You could build a list from your group.

    You're only allowed one 'sticky post' per group. So you could sell that post to one member or advertiser weekly to have their post stuck at the top of all others. You would determine the amount you are selling that post for and that would be one way you could earn money from the group.

    Oh yes!! The group has 20k members is huge and open to the public. Make a second (private, inner circle) group that gives more value with guidelines for joining. Offer the members a training video or something once a week and have them pay a monthly or annual fee to be a member of this inner circle.

    You can try CPA games, the "add me" groups are mostly filled with kids with not much "spending will"

    if you're not allowed to post those aff links in FB use a redirect plugin in your wordpress site in a new page and use that page's url as the link for your group

    Since you have a group then Why not lead it towards a niche. you know post pictures about it, post quotes about it. Start discussions about it and once you have them stuck to it then start posting links of genuinely interesting stuff on your website about that and start leading people there from your group. Get traffic, and you can earn from your website by displaying adds there

      Getting your group members to go off site to sign up for an email list might be an ideal solution. You don't really have a way to contact those people except via the Facebook group. And, when members simply stop using the group, they will opt not to get notifications on that group. So even 20k members is not really a correct estimate of how many of those members are active.

    Affiliate offers is the best way to go but make sure the offers are page related !

    Whatever you do just send them to a squeeze page to get their emails so you can can build a list.

    then promote targeted products and offer some quality to your emails, to keep them interested.
    Also build a blog about something you love, possibilies are endless.

    Whatever you do though, build an email list and promote through there.

    First, you must try to build a list. Post a link where you will be able to grab member's emails.
    Then, you can create another private group where to invite the registered members - you can sell the pinned post or add your affiliate links.
