Access Your Professional Dashboard

The professional dashboard on your page is a great place to start to find ways to make money on Facebook. Honestly, the majority of my time there is spent on my mobile so the screenshots you’ll see below will guide you there. Plus, people almost exclusively use a mobile device for Facebook nowadays anyway. I need to set the bar on making money, however. At the time of this writing, my page has around 18k followers and I’ve accrued around $10 total. So, the process is long and tedious, but I’ve got faith something will come of it all. There’s a sauce on ways to make money on Facebook and these are a few of them.

What’s my Status?

Basically, Facebook will display your monetization status once you’ve accesses the professional dashboard. Then you can visualize the ways to make money on Facebook. Interestingly, I was restricted for a while and was unable to earn money for about a week after I posted a video that I didn’t have the rights to. So, I learned the hard way on ways to make money on Facebook and got out of the doghouse. If you’re familiar with social media in general, then you know they’ve all got those damn community rules they make up. But I’ve learned the do’s and don’ts at this point, knock on wood! Check out the next screenshot below.

Stars, Bonuses & Subscriptions

Now, within the monetization tab and under ‘your tools’, you’ll see stars, bonuses and subscriptions. These are simple ways to make money on Facebook. Essentially, people can purchase stars through Facebook and donate them on posts that qualify for stars. And one star equals one penny. So, it takes a lot of stars to add up. Next, bonuses have been the most profitable for me. You’re able to gain money from likes and shares on qualifying posts and even videos. But when it comes to subscriptions, it’s been a tough to get people to sign on. Subscriptions aren’t unique to Facebook. Moreover, you’ll see these on YouTube and other social media sites. You can set the price for followers to sign up monthly and provide them with special or privileged content.

You Can Monetize Your Reels

So, if you’re unfamiliar with social media, reels are a great way to make money on Facebook, as well as garner traffic, attention and followers. Now, when it’s comes to monetization of reels, you can run different types of ads in the reel. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to experience this yet. There are eligibility requirements that have yet to be met. Live videos are part of these requirements as are the minutes watched. One downside to social media is the community rules and/or standards that can be vague and ambiguous. If you break the rules, then you may not qualify for ad on reels. But have fun with it my friends.
