Do You Monetize Your Social Media Account?
« on: August 04, 2016, 04:52:11 AM »
Hi guys! :)

I was wondering if you use your social media accounts for online business or other money-making opportunities. I see some who use Facebook to sell their physical items or even services. Some use various social media accounts for affiliate marketing.

I also tried selling stuff on Facebook but I still haven't had any luck. How about you, do you monetize your social media accounts? If so, how?

I use social media sites to get traffic to my online articles, blogs and websites. Traffic converts into ad clicks and ad impression, which converts to money. Thus, I can say that my social media accounts help me make money. I also marketing my services and products through social media sites. I have been able to make some sales through Facebook and Twitter.

My Twitter sort of is I guess in the sense of getting referrals. I don't bombard it though or anything. But on occasion or every so many days I may share an affiliate link or ref link. Aside from that I don't really do any other type of monetizing other than Adsense on my blog.

I can see that we are mostly the same with our usage of our social media sites. When I started my blog, I relied on social media, especially Twitter to get traffic into my site and it worked for me. My biggest traffic came from Twitter so I really appreciate how fast I was able to reach people through it. I still have a long way to go with my blog and promoting it though because I still haven't reached a point where I can say that my blog is already well established. But social media does help a lot in promotion then eventually in monetization. :)

To be honest I don't because it can look spammy and people now quite rightly are more careful about clicking on links. I will retweet or promote something that may have a link, but the conversion rate is low.

I have had had some referrals sign up, and I don't know where from, but in general I think it's hard to do unless you have a blog or site that is alongside it.

It can get very frustrating even doing a case study just to see if it will take off. People with resources are actually paying other people for their talent to get their ideas moving and soon rake in some money. If you know how to do it on your own then lucky you.

That's the thing. I think I'm not really doing it right and I have actually given up on it because I haven't been able to make any earnings from this kind of technique so I decided to just do my usual online gigs. Some people do succeed at monetizing their social media accounts though and I admire them for that. On my part, I just discovered that it's not really something for me.  :)

I do not monetize my personal social media account but rather have a company account which I regularly monetize.

It is best to create a second account from a different ip if you want to monetize it because the account for monetization can easily get banned and therefore, it is better to have a second account because the personal account is not worth getting banned in my opinion.

I am using this strategy on instagram as well as on facebook both.

This is one of those where I know that I am not doing enough.  There is just so much potential there, and I always hear of different ways about ways to do it.  I am still learning though, and I have never really been big on the social media.  I think that this is changing though, and the more I hear about these potentials the more excited I get.  I just need a little direction, so for that I say thank you.

The only social media site that I frequent is Facebook, and because I really want to keep it separate from all my online stuff, I haven't bothered. Also, like Alex says, it can come across as spammy on Facebook, and because of that, most people just won't bother to click on any links posted there. I'm very new to this whole monetizing websites thing, so I'll be watching this thread and learning because very soon I'll need to do it when I start running my own personal blog LOL Exciting but rather daunting times!

I don't think so that there would be any direct way to monetize. We can earn by selling products and promoting the products. If you know any way to monetize your social media then please let me know.
