Many people use social media to get in touch with friends and to socialize with people, but very few know how to use social media as a tool to make money and become financially free.
You can make use of Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Youtube, Linkedin, Reddit, Google Plus, and many more to make money. People are earning money using their Pages and accounts on these social media networks but you do not know.
The secrets of making money with your social media account
- Know the niche you want to start with and your long-term goals. If you intend to have a business in the future, then build your followers around your business niche. If you intend to sell babies’ clothes and items, then build your followers of Parents who are having kids. If you intend to sell your ad space to advertisers or to businesses, then you should know the type of businesses you love them to advertise with you. Knowing this helps you maximize your social media marketing strategy because you would not want to have a mixture of followers where some love sports, others politics, others business, and others fashion. How would you then advertise to such a mixed group of followers?
- Start putting out content that is valuable every day because that is the only way to grow a social media account from zero subscribers or followers to millions of subscribers. Do not be distracted by trending topics on one niche because you do not want to have mixed followers with different interests.
- You can get in touch with companies you know will benefit from your niche such as a company that sells or manufacture children’s items and asks them to advertise on your page. Please make sure you have a very large audience first because it will make it easier for you and also the company too.
- If the companies are not interested, you can start selling your own products directly to your followers.
- You could also refer your followers to products you know will interest them that are related to your niche and in return, you get a commission through affiliate marketing links.
- If you don’t have enough following yet, you can still be creating content for different companies by helping them manage their social media accounts. You can learn more about content creation jobs on Jooble.
This takes time but it is a very good way of making decent money and depending on your followers and how dedicated you are, you could earn millions with this.
The basic secret is that the more your followers, the more you will earn. In fact, companies may start contacting you even when you do not know how to market yourself but this only happens when you have a large following.
Remember that what you put out to your followers should be helpful or valuable to them. And one thing is that you have to be consistent with your posting before you begin to see results.
