7 Coolest Ways to Make Money From Social Networks

7 Coolest Ways to Make Money From Social Networks-there is no need to argue whether or not there can be a way of making money from social networks . We are all testimonials to that marvelous fact that social media has come to stay.  and if there is no fact to reckon on, there is this fat that Africa has 9.1%  of the world’s population, leaving 90.9% for the rest of the world.

In Africa, about 146,637,000 people make active use if Facebook, as at June 2016(and Facebook is just one among many social networks on the web.)

And there are many other known and unknown social networks  out there.

Twitter has even a bigger reputation

As of the fourth quarter of 2016, the microblogging service averaged at 319 million monthly active users. At the beginning of 2016, Twitter had reached 310 MAU per quarter. Isn’t this interesting?

Twitter is just a social networking and microblogging service, enabling registered users to read and post short messages, so-called tweets.


LinkedIn has even more to offer?

LinkedIn is the number one social network for professionals.

LinkedIn is another social network one can use to generate income from several angles, but I know you’ve read plenty of posts about how to create your profile, create a company page, and generate traffic back to your website, so So I’m gong to generalize how to use LinkedIn(and other social networks) to make money online.

The web is such a nice place to target people that are already looking for you. Thought there might be a need to promote your page, profile, group and profiles, there is strong prospect that accompanies a well-structured social profile account in terms of making money from working from home.


Does Social Network really Network? 

There is no doubt that social networks is a nice place to reach out to myriad of audience at a go. This is why, on this post, it is considered a wealth source for social entrepreneurs.

But the truth remains that you ought to make much impact, when your number of followers and active listeners have grown, and the best approach to building your followers is by influencing your brand advocates. The question is; what is your product going to be?

People term it differently, but our content as digital personality remains digital. That might be a form of text, graphics or audios, but you must keep them engaged. A social profile with many follower attracts clients more than what a pollinating flowers does to the pollinating insects, but you must learn to stick to what works best for you.

Facebook is not the only social network but has been my largest house to keep my audience engaged; through my works and a source of inspirational stories, and other digital products.

Now you have heard that it’s not about signing up with a social network. It’s about who listens to you, what you have to say and how often you say it. If you’ve met up with these rituals, now it’s time to start thinking about your growth, and monetization.


Can Your Profile Actually Grow?

The right questions should be ‘what are you going to make out your grown profile’

You must understand that your social profile, groups or pages, can win the trust it merits if your content remains coherent, consistent, and credible.

This is not going to be the only possible means of making a good living out of your social engagements, but just like Peter Ducker said, the only thing we know about the future is that it will be different. Likewise the future of the cyberspace. It must be different and new features must emerge. But in today’s world, Social Networking is still a good means of approaching digital MARKETING and a sure means of massive influencing. This is why you must not take chances with your social profiles, in terms of maximizing its profits.


How Do I Build Massive Followers?

One of my greatest strategy is being creative and realistic. Your social profile, group or mere pages can help you generate the million influence in just a month, and lead across some figures ahead of your initial financial state of being. But the charm is that your online presence must be dedicated to solving some problems. Another great impact is the frequency; which encompasses your consistency in delivering the right content (could be video, text, or audio) at the right time. In other words, to keep others engaged you must be informed to keep others informed,

Before you continue with building a strong online relevance, here are topnotch key points to follow:

*Deliver quality and filtered content

Create a very appealing social profile, and keep the content therein up to date.

*Be consistent

*Be Honest

*and be on time

It has something to do with your impacts on social issues; and you must be ready to keep your works promoted. You love to learn how to promote your content on Facebook here…


Promote Your Profile

Have you wondered why many Instagram, twitter and Facebook Pages rank higher than other, or have more followers?

No film trick involved. The Demographic interests of their followers has a ways of placing them before others, but the number of people talking about their content has a better way of placing them first in the ranking catalogue.

All you need to make bigger earning is to make bigger network, but in some cases, how you promote clients’ content matters more than how many followers you have. There are numerous strategies than can help you justify whatever amount you are being paid.


For instance; I get contracts to promote pages, groups and websites; not because I brag about the number of my followers, or group members, but because my clients see the impacts and the number of people impacted. I help them see that their potential customers, clients and friends reside on my list of followers, and group members


Bu there are more you can make out of your own social media accounts. you don’t need to be a celebrity to get  that done. And neither do you need to be a blogger to make something out of your social media accounts.

But to avert stories, let’s get the fact rolling:

  1. Promote Others’ Products and Services

There is always a small, medium or large scale manufacturers around you whose products and services need to be properly promoted to get to their audience (your page followers), and you can earn extra cash from helping them sell. This is similar but different from affiliate marketing programs but all have a trace of digital marking. All you need to do, is let the audience know something about their products, creatively advertise and keep your followers engaged about the products until the terms are satisfied.


  1. You can also promote affiliate products.

No matter what industry you’re in, you can find great products to promote on ClickBank. And if that doesn’t quite jive with you, you can also become an Amazon Associate, promote products of your choosing and earn commissions on them — Amazon has no shortage of products.

Next, instead of spamming links on Twitter and hoping for the best, keep in mind that the most honest and effective way of promoting affiliate products is through reviews. If you personally use a product and like it, and know that your followers serve to benefit from it, then write a long-form review on your blog, and share why you like the product. Don’t be afraid to talk about what you like and don’t like about it. You can even use video if that’s more your style.

Also make sure to disclose your affiliate relationships. This is a legal requirement in most cases, but it’s also “best practice.” Your readers or viewers will appreciate your honesty.

3. Help Bloggers Gain Traffic

As a page owner (that has good number of followers), with interest in digital marketing, you can earn dearly by redirecting members to bloggers’ URL for good reasons. This can be done by simply saying (good) things on your social profiles, redirecting the audience to the source sites.

Is this that simple? Yeah very simple but to be a master of internet promotion, you will love to learn the use of hashtags, paid posting, guest blogging, SEOs and analytics in making your content popular.

You can even help companies, bloggers and others promote their posts.

And you can also get your sales pitches in front of more eyeballs with promoted posts, available through almost any social media service. It doesn’t cost much but will surely get you some chash.


4. Promote (Sell) Your Arts

Do you have something that you can do very well? If yes, your social profile is such a nice place to market yourselves.  It one of the purest means of filtered advertisement.

Tumblr and Instagram are great places to post original artwork and get a lot of responses and shares. If your art starts going viral, you can turn that interest into income by selling prints and other works through online stores like  Etsy or Big Cartel.

Friends’ pages like Ugraphics, NObleSoft and many others, are dedicated graphics pages aimed at keeping their potential clients engaged with their good works of digital arts.

5. Promote Other Pages

With a grown page, you can promote others’ pages.  As an internet marketer, you can be paid very well for promoting a page that is not yours. But this can only be done with creativity and stronger tact, to avoid total migration (lol).

To do this effectively, you must keep your ears on the ground, ; to know what others are doing. But when you promote carefully and win, you have simply helped someone to help your financial account grow.

6. Speak For Others

Because you are connected to others, you can be an online mediator. You can help friends organize and announce events, and air other crucial public announcements like “missing child” “marriage” and myriads of others

  • Manage Social Media Accounts

There are a lot of companies, and big guys out there, seeking someone to handle their social media presence. Though some of those positions are internships, but there are also many paid opportunities out there. Search “social media” on job boards to find results in your area. I actually manage about three different social media accounts currently.

Remember, With just your LikedIn Profile, you can make a lot of money by Growing your mailing list, selling physical or digital products, offering services and getting hired and lots more…

7. Sell Your Intellectual Properties 

Everything good has a price, and your online presence has some cools values.

Just recently, a friend revealed his interest in buying one of my Facebook groups, that is worth more than 5 Million users. That has been my latest deal, but trust me, that’s going to fetch me sum cool cash.


How Do I Get These Jobs?

Yes you’ve learnt “7 the coolest ways of making money from your social profile” but another challenging question remains “how can I get these kind of jobs?”

But the right question should be; how to get the job done. This is because everybody wants to sell, and social profile has the strength to the right clients.

Your leverage in getting short term marketing contract (with your social profile), is the number of people listening to you (active engagement), and that will become your bait in convincing top managements in patronizing digital marketing. Go for these opportunities, create the never-existing marketing chances (opportunities), and utilize them properly.


This might not be comprehensive, with regards to making money from social networks though we’ve marked this post subject to regular update, there must still be other means of earning a living by just having good living; from the comfort of your homes.
