We have told you before that a Facebook ad is not digital marketing. But today, I want to talk to you about the power of social media. Is it true that you can make money out of it? Totally true, but is it easy to make money out of social media? Unfortunately, it is not. You need to be persistent, patient and follow a solid plan if you want to see results.
It is not an easy path, but I’m sure you will be able to achieve what you are looking for if you do it the right way. Let’s begin with your idea. You can monetize a lot of things on social media, you don’t even have to sell a product or have a company. But you do have to know exactly what you want. What is your idea? Is there a market for your idea? Will people pay for your idea?
This is pretty much as with starting your own business. Information is the key. Make a business plan; even if your goal is to teach how to apply makeup or if you want to give breastfeeding advice, you need to make a business plan if you want your idea to work as a business. Meaning, if you want to make money, you are going to have to “sell” something valuable. Before you jump out of your chair and scream at the screen, yes, I know I said that you wouldn’t need to sell anything! By this, I meant merchandise or something that requires staff, but even if you are going to make money out of your followers, shares, likes, etc. you are actually “selling” something to your audience. If someone tells you differently, those are probably scammers and they are not worth your time and certainly not your money.
