250,000 Facebook followers in a month? It’s not as hard as you think.

Okay, before we get started, let’s differentiate between purchased followers and real followers. You can do any type of Google search and find hundreds of services that will have their robot and spam account followers go and like your Facebook page in just a few days. And if you do that, you will ruin your Facebook page. You see, Facebook has an algorithm that looks for these types of activities. And if they find that your page is indulging in a quick fix, they will penalize you. Going forward your organic reach will be stymied and your page will never have the potential it could have had if you had built it the correct way.

Now, even though we’re going to be discussing real followers, this doesn’t mean you didn’t pay for them. Instead, you’ll be paying Facebook. Because Facebook has become a pay-to-play network for businesses. They just want to make sure that you’re paying them and not someone else. And when I say you’ll be paying for them, I mean you’ll be spending promotion dollars to attract them.

Alright, so is it possible to get a quarter of a million people to like your page in under a month? Yes. It’s actually quite easy when you follow a set plan.

You will need time and money to accomplish this. If you’re expecting to be able to do it for free, then it is still possible, but it is ridiculously unlikely that you can accomplish it in the time frame laid out.

One quick note before we begin. There’s the possibility of “boosting” your page on Facebook which will attract people to like and follow your page. You can get people to like your page for anywhere from 50 cents to 5 dollars per follower on average. This is not that strategy. Instead, we’ll be targeting a cost per new follower well below 5 cents.

First Step

You’ll first want to identify an audience that has a significant number attached to it. By this I mean you want to choose who will be fans of your Facebook page. And you’ll want to ensure that there are enough of them to warrant a 250,000 follower number. Thus, if you’re creating a Facebook page for dog owners, choose dog owners. Do not choose hairless chihuahua owners who live in Arizona. That second audience is far too small and you’ll never gain your desired following.

Once you’ve identified them, you’ll want to create a saved audience in the Facebook ads platform for this group. I recommend creating a half dozen versions of the audience and target them in different ways. For instance, you can choose people who like pages about dogs. You can also target people who follow other popular dog pages. There are even ways to target people based on their buying habits. So, create a few different ways that you’re going to target dog owners (again, the audience we’re using as an example).

Second Step

Set up your Facebook page and fill in all the pertinent information. I also recommend creating an Instagram page at the same time since you can receive a lot of collateral benefits on Instagram from your activities on Facebook. For example, one of the pages that I’ve created on Facebook reached the 250,000 follower mark and the Instagram page reached 30,000 followers in that same time with almost no additional effort.

Third Step

You’ll now want to find out what your audience is engaging with. Go to pages that speak to your target audience and study the posts they are putting up. Find out which ones are getting the most likes and shares. Then create a posting calendar for your page and emulate those posts. For instance, if you notice that people engage with cute images of dogs (which they do) at a high rate, then you’ll want to source as many of these posts as you can. They may also engage with training tips (which they do), so you’ll also want to work posts in about that topic as well.

On average you’ll want to post at a minimum of 4 to 6 times per day. And spend a few days populating your page with posts before you start any type of promotion. That way the page looks like it’s been around for a while. You have a higher chance of people following your page if they see some history.

Fourth Step

You’ll now want to boost every single post you publish. I recommend using a set small amount per post. Usually, this is $5 to $10. And you’ll want to boost them for just one day.

As a quick cheat sheet, images will get the most engagements in terms of reactions (likes, love, laugh), shares, and comments. Videos will receive a lot of views, but less actions. Updates are third in reach, and link shares are dead last in the amount of people you can reach for the same amount of money. So, I would put most of your time into image posts at first.

Fifth Step

The reason you’ll be boosting every post is because you’re looking for the outliers when it comes to cost per engagement. Some posts can cost 10 cents per engagement and others can be upwards of $1 per engagement (a terrible post if that’s the case). But there are some lucky few that will be below two cents per engagement, and some even less than a penny. These are the ones you’re looking for. As you skim the data, find the posts that did extremely well on a cost per engagement basis and then go back to those posts and boost them with more budget.

$12,000 USD for a Single Photo Upload? Current Marketing Trend Turns Regular Joes Into Money Making Machines

We don’t normally post press releases, but this one is quite interesting and it shows how to make ungodly amounts of money with Instagram accounts!

In a world where social media is king and a virtual “nobody” can become famous overnight, ViralAccounts.com owner, and operator, David Kosiba says only the famous need not apply when it comes to making thousands of dollars to upload an Instagram photo.

This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

Tarnow, Malopolska — (ReleaseWire) — 12/08/2016 — In the digital age where news travels faster than the time it took to make it, most know their way around social media like the back of their hand. But do they know that social media marketing can net users a hefty payday? Makes one wonder if that code can be cracked by anyone without a steady place in the zeitgeist and the bank account to prove it. According to the research of D’Marie Analytics, celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, or Rihanna make five to six figures for a single social status update. Regardless if it’s Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat, or Twitter, all it takes is one upload to net them more than most Americans make in a year. The good news is, recent marketing methods reveal that this money making machine isn’t exclusive to celebrities. “Regular Joes,” even with very little experience in social media, are getting in on the action. It’s all thanks to a little big thing called influencer platforms.

David Kosiba, owner, and operator of ViralAccounts.com, said of the increasing trend, “The lucrative side of social media is being infiltrated by everyday people, due to the recent sprout of available resources and guides that reveal just how easy it is to ‘make it’ in this medium. The concept is quite simple. It combines the influence of celebrities and the advertising power of companies. Think of it like this. It’s natural that businesses need exposure to survive and famous people with a large following can fulfill that need. However, these days, influence isn’t exclusive to celebrities. Anyone with a large social following, whether he is a famous world-known actor or a 14-year-old YouTuber streaming video games, is considered influential.”

So how can an everyday social media user, with no social presence, earn like the celebrities do? It’s easier than one would think. They do it by buying already established social media properties. It turns out influence is not only lucrative; it’s also for sale.

Social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Vine with a large following are now referred to as properties. And these properties are sold and resold at popular websites such as BuySellAccounts.com, ViralAccounts.com or FanPageCash.org. Catering to all budgets, these companies provide influential accounts on every popular platform that just happen to be up for sale. With little investment, anyone can get a large social following immediately. And that not only opens the doors, it translates to advertising dollars.

Kosiba adds, “Obtaining influence is the hardest part. But once you become the proud owner of a vast amount of followers, getting advertisers’ offers is easy. That’s all thanks to the growing popularity of influencer platforms. Influencer platforms are simply websites that connect influential people to advertisers. Currently, some of the best-rated influencer platforms are Socialix, BrandBacker, Content BLVD, and FameBit. All it takes is a simple sign up, then connecting your social account, and waiting for the offers to roll in. The amount of income will depend on the size of your social property, engagement levels and niche. The more desirable your social profile is, the more offers you will receive. For example, one of the top influencers on Socialix currently makes 12,000 USD per a single Instagram post. He isn’t a movie star, he isn’t a rapper, and he isn’t a famous athlete. He simply has a very large and active Instagram account, which features over eight million fans.”

With all that said, just like in life, it’s not all smooth sailing. Buying influential properties takes time and money. Because of availability issues, wait times to purchase such accounts can get lengthy. Additionally, a good property can range anywhere from $5-50K USD. But considering the return on investment, most people can recoup their money within a relatively short time span, providing that advertisers continue to find their properties desirable.

How do people make money from Facebook fanpages?

How can I make money with a Facebook page?

Making money from Facebook fanpages can be a tough task these days, but for many people it is still a viable source of income. Back in the day, a single mid-size Facebook fanpage was capable of netting thousands of dollars per month. This is no longer the reality, because to make anything decent you will need a whole network of Facebook pages. However, things aren’t over yet for the little guy. If you’re new to the world of online money making, and you do own a large fanpage, you can still make a nice chunk of change by following the methods outlined in this article.

Before you even think about jumping into any of these methods, keep in mind that they all take time and effort, and you also may have to invest a little money for things such as hosting and domains. So, are you ready to make money from your fan pages?

Making money via direct sales.

You can most likely sell things directly to your fans if you have a very niche specific fanpage. When we mean sales we don’t necessarily mean the “hey guys, you should totally buy this!” approach. This method is considered intrusive, and it will most likely get your Facebook fanpage marked as spam. For the sake of the article let’s say that your Facebook fanpage is about apples. The first thing that comes to mind is to create a store by setting up a website and start selling apples, right? Wrong. These days you need to captivate the audience with amazing photos of apples, you need to tell them why apples are good for them, why they need to have one right now, and why they need to purchase them from you! This is an unintrusive way of pre-selling something online, as you aren’t directly asking your audience to buy apples, you are giving them reasons why they should own one. This method works wonders if executed correctly. However, it can be time-consuming. You will have to set up a store, constantly come up with fresh content, snap captivating photos, and stay on top of current trends. Remember, you will most likely not make money by selling actual apples, this was just an example, and I don’t think there are any “apple trends”, although the acai berry had its fifteen minutes of fame. The reality is that direct sales via Facebook fanpages are incredibly tough, and unless your topic is directly related to a particular niche such as mobile phones, personal computers, cars, toys, etc, you will most likely not make any sales.

Earn money by selling ad spots on your Facebook fanpage.

Did you know that there are people out there that will pay you to post things on your Facebook page? If your page is active, you can probably make enough money to pay off a few bills simply by posting links, photos, and videos for others. Ever heard of “influencers?” Well, if you own a large Facebook fanpage you most likely fit into that category. Influencer is simply a person who can (as the name says) influence others. If you own a Facebook page with tons of followers, you have the ability to influence them in a quick and convenient way. Not too many people or companies have the potential to reach thousands of people with a few mouse clicks, which is why many of them are willing to pay for that type of service. This is probably the easiest method of monetizing your fanpage. However, it won’t make you rich, and if you push too hard you might even lose your followers. Naturally, this method requires fanpage owners to spam their followers with irrelevant offers that aren’t usually related to the fanpage topic. Unless you keep strict tabs on what is advertised on your fanpage you will most likely anger your fans, thus making them leave, thus killing your only revenue source. You can avoid the certain death of your fanpage by accepting posts related to your topic, but that will naturally lower your chances of netting a client who is willing to pay. Most people who purchase fanpage post spots don’t care on which page they advertise, they just want exposure and quick traffic. But your fans will care, especially if you keep bombarding them with constant offers and promotions. So the only question left is, “how do I find people who are willing to pay me?”. This part is not as difficult as it may seem, as there are plenty of influencer platforms popping up all over the web. The most common places people usually sell fanpage spots is Fiverr, however, if you’re looking for high-end influencer platforms that pay a lot more you can try Socialix.

Viral stories + Facebook fanpages = big bucks.

Ever heard of Diply, ViralNova, Storify or Upworthy? How about Buzzfeed? These names are some of the most known and shared websites on Facebook, and they aren’t selling apples or the latest phones. No, they only thing they provide is entertainment. The countless clickbait titles you see (“When she looked inside she never expected to see that…. SHOCKING!”) are currently the best way you can make money from Facebook fanpages. The reason is simple, many times these cutesy/clickbaity titles go viral, and they can make an incredible amount of money, fast. One of our clients singlehandedly made 116,000 USD in ad revenue overnight, as one of his posted links went viral and reached 46,000,000 people in just 24 hours. While cases like this one are rare they do happen, and the chances of them happening increase with each additional fanpage you own. All that being said, this method will have little success with only one fanpage, because in order to make any significant money you will need at least 10-20 pages. There are exceptions, for example, if you own one vast and active fanpage (we’re talking at least two million fans) you may be able to pull this off. However, this method of money making requires lots of setup and continued maintenance. We’re talking about building a website, optimizing it to handle large amounts of traffic (because what’s the point of going viral when your website gets knocked offline?), setting up an AdSense account (the company that will pay you for ad views/clicks), and most of all, creating content. The content needs to be fresh and share-worthy, and that requires hours of research and the ability to write articles. If executed correctly the benefits can be very rewarding, we are talking thousands of dollars per month. But you can also lose 100’s of hours of work, if it turns out that your fans aren’t much into reading stories.

Last but not least, you can just sell your fanpage.

Selling is the quickest way to earning money from your Facebook fanpage. Not only will you get paid right away, you will also be paid handsomely, as popular fanpages can hold their value. Yes, you will only make a one-time payment, but remember, the alternative is constant work, research, sales, writing, and customer service. The other route also offers uncertainty, as no matter which method you decide to try, the all require time, effort and money, without any guarantees of success. You can sell your fanpage popular sites such as Viral Accounts or Buy Sell Accounts.

 

There are also many restrictions imposed by Facebook that will make following any of these methods a lot more difficult. For example, just because you have a 100k fanpage does not mean you can reach all of these people every time you post. To the contrary, you will be lucky enough to reach 5-10% of your audience, because of the latest reach restrictions imposed by Facebook. Facebook wants you to pay every time you want to reach your entire audience, thus making money via their platform very counter-intuitive. This is why at the present moment it is tough to make any substantial money with just one page. As always, if you decide to try, your results will greatly depend on individual effort, skill, and lots of luck.
