Ways to monetize on Facebook
There are a few different ways you can monetize content on Facebook:
1 Instream Ads – Include ads in your videos.
In-stream ads help you earn money by including short ads before, during or after your videos. Facebook automatically identify natural breaks in your content to place your ads, or you can choose your own placements. Your earnings are determined by things such as number of video views and who the advertisers are.
– Longer videos
– Content that is suitable for advertisers
2 Fan Subscription – Add a paid subscription to Pages.
Fan subscriptions allow the audience that cares most about your Page to directly fund it through monthly, recurring payments that you set. Identify supporters by the special Facebook badge in comments, and reward them with perks such as exclusive content and discounts.
– Pages with a large, active following
– Pages interested in offering exclusive bonus content
Eligibility – The access to fan subscriptions is currently by invitation only.
3 Branded Content – Collaborate with brands.
Generate revenue by publishing content that features or is influenced by a business partner. Brands want to work with content creators and their audiences. To make this easier, safer and more impactful for both parties, Facebook have created a tool, the Brand Collabs Manager, which enables you to find and connect with each other.
