1. Earn money through Facebook page
A Facebook page can fetch you a lot of money depending on how well you operate it and monetize it. How to earn money from a Facebook page is not complex. To begin, you will need to have a page. If you don’t a Facebook page, you can easily create one.
The first thing to do is to find a niche that you love and that you observe Nigerians love. There are several examples like lifestyle, celebrity, OMG, travel, humour etc. The next thing to do is to begin to publish content on your Facebook page. You need to ensure you do this consistently.
While you’re creating and publishing content on your page, you need to make sure the content are interesting and engaging. Create room for your page followers to contribute. Build relationship with them by asking them questions or carrying them along in your posts. As your followers increase, you can begin to accept sponsored posts and ads while you get paid for it.
2. Earn money by selling products on your page
The existence of the internet has made it easy for people to easily buy anything they like. You can also earn money n Facebook by selling products to people. While you regularly give updates on your page, you can slide in posts that advertise your own products. If you want to boost your sales, you should consider occasionally offering discounts on the products.
But if you have no products to sell, you can turn to the affiliate marketing path. You can promte products on Jumia, Konga, Amazon, Ebay, ShareASale.com, Commission Junction etc and earn a commission on each sale. You can also promote these offers through Facebook ads.

3. Become an influencer
If you don’t want to own a Facebook page, you can still make money from your regular account. All you need to do is become a Facebook influencer. An influencer is someone who has a large followership on Facebook on their personal accounts. You can become one by regularly making posts that people find interesting.
These posts could be fictional stories (many Nigerians love stories, especially romance stories), making interesting posts about your day and sharing your thoughts, creating hilarious posts if you have a humorous personality (who can turn down an opportunity to have a good laugh?) or share your share your opinions on trendy issues in the society.
As you continually make these posts and grow your followership, you can expect to be contacted by brands to write a sponsored post. You may even be recognised by your local or state government (yes, social media influencers are that powerful in Nigeria) and things could develop from there.
By adopting any of the approaches above, you can easily earn money on Facebook. You can even add a fourth to it if you’re a blogger. Facebook remains a way to build a strong brand, increase awareness about and it ultimately drive people to your blog.
