5 ways to monetize your social media
1. Video marketing
Whether you’re a growing business, an established brand already exploring with video, or a content creator, it’s time to take your marketing strategy to the next level with impactful social video. With video, you can generate revenue and receive ROI on the assets you’ve spent time developing. Start with instagram or facebook video.
FAQ: What does monetization mean?
Monetization is the process of earning revenue from an asset or the conversion of an asset.
2. Freemium to premium
Offering something for nothing may not seem like the best business model at first. But what better way to prove your content is worth paying for than offering some of it for free? This way, your customers know the value you’re able to provide them and willingly convert to paying customers over time.
3. Direct sales
Providing a direct Click to action on social media is one way to bring traffic directly to your website. For B2C (business to consumer) brands, selling your product on social is a little easier thanks to Instagram Stores and Facebook business pages. Paying to promote your posts will also help to get your content in front of the right people at the right time.
Remember to make direct sales offers only if your content holds value regardless of that offer. You can create stand-out content with videos that inform, entertain, and educate.
4. Lead generation
Maybe your social posts link to a blog that requires an email form. Suddenly, that follower is now a marketing qualified lead, who is on their way down the sales funnel. If you can’t make a sale directly off of your social platform, set your followers up in a way18 that encourages them to buy in the future.
Think of every follower as a potential customer. Leads will not just appear by doing nothing. Your content strategy must be well-developed in order to speak to potential buyers and encourage them to take action.
Social media content that is developed with the sales journey in mind is the first step. Promoting webinars, live streams, and free resources that bring followers to your website or landing pages is a great first step. The key is adding value to your potential customers’ experience.
FAQ: How do I monetize my Facebook page?
The first step to monetizing your Facebook page doesn’t have to do with Facebook at all. Since a lot of Facebook’s traffic comes from mobile, it is extremely important to make sure your website is optimized for mobile as well. That way, the traffic coming from the Facebook app doesn’t meet any friction in the buying experience. Another tip is to sell content on your Facebook page directly by promoting a video series, ebook, or subscription promotion.
Sponsorships are a tried-and-true method to social media monetization that have been around for ages. In a good sponsorship deal, the sponsor reaches their target audience through genuine endorsement and the creator gets paid in return. These days, there are lots of variations to this relationship, such as the content creator receiving a discount on a brand’s products or an all-inclusive trip.
In most sponsored content, the creator will leave a section promoting the brand or run an advert during their content. Oftentimes, there is also a requirement to link to the brand’s website as well.
