Here’s how to earn money from Facebook videos even if you are just starting out.
But first let me ask, are you surprised that one can actually earn off Facebook videos? While many people spend tons of time on Facebook, not everyone stops to ask how to earn money from Facebook videos or content.
In this article, you are going to discover the simple steps you can follow to earn money from Facebook videos.
‘Facebook is an excellent social network, which has become a meeting place for many people. Within its page, you can do almost anything, from selling an object you don’t want anymore to building your brand, monetizing your videos on Facebook, and even connecting with your loved ones.
This mobile application has great projections for people who want to give a different twist to their networks and benefit from the views they obtain.
Based on this, Facebook allows content creators the possibility to monetize the videos uploaded to their platform and, in turn, generate a certain profit from them. To opt for this monetization, you must take into account the following requirements.
How to Monetize Facebook Videos?
“Facebook Advertising Pauses” are short ads that you can include in videos that meet the requirements to earn money. The ads will appear in natural pauses of the content or in those locations that you choose.
The requirements to use the “Advertising breaks” are simple.
1.You must have on your Facebook page more than 10,000 followers.
2.Your videos must be more than 3 minutes in length with more than 30,000 views (minimum 1 minute) generated in the last two months.
3.You must also comply with the Facebook policies for monetization.
Once you verify that you are eligible to use “Advertising breaks”” you can incorporate them and start inserting ad placements into your videos. You can decide which advertisers or categories of advertisers you don’t want to appear next to your content.
Also, you have the option of requesting that the content be reviewed beforehand so that you can start earning money from the moment you post.You can also massively upload large amounts of videos to your page to easily consolidate your video strategy on Facebook and start earning money , for example, the videos that you have previously uploaded to YouTube (as long as your catalog complies with the requirements).
Set Up Your Facebook Page to Show Videos
If you are sure that you want to dedicate yourself to monetizing your Facebook platform, one of the things you should do, apart from creating videos, is to configure your Facebook page for it and adapt it with the Video Page template.
Important to know that we are talking about A Facebook page and not your personal profile.
If you haven’t created your Facebook page, Creating your facebook page is totally free. First, login to your Facebook account, go to your personal profile. Then click on manage pages. Next, click on create a page. You will be presented with two options; here you can select what best represents you or your business idea.
Once you meet the requirements above, head over to your page, and then go to the “video library” section. Once you have selected it, at the top you will see a notification that says “earn money with ads.” This appears because Facebook has already realized that you meet the requirements to monetize your page. Go ahead and click on the button that says “start”
The first step is to select the page you want to monetize. Once you select it, accept the terms and conditions before clicking on the “next” button. It’ll take you to where you can configure your payments, and there you are going to put some information like your country, job if you are a private or public company, Postal Code, etc.
Once you have these fields ready, click “next” and it’ll take you to the next page where you’ll fill your details on how to receive payments. There two methods that’ll be presented;
You just have to link your PayPal email to receive payments and once they start to pay, it will automatically be sent to your account.
• Bank account
You only need to add the data of your account and immediately its set, you will receive the payments to your bank account.
Once you have these filled all the data, a window will appear telling you that “you’re done,” close it, and click “next.”
Review Videos You Wish to Monetize on Facebook
Now the ads are going to be placed on those videos that meet the requirements and have been uploaded to the pages you registered to receive advertising breaks. This means that you will send all your videos for review to verify if they comply with Facebook policy.
You get the option to “send all the videos for review,” click “send,” if that’s what you want so that Facebook can approve them and you start receiving your payments. You can now begin to generate income. Each video you upload is going to start generating money once they’ve been reviewed and accepted.
How to Earn Money from Facebook videos without using ads
To earn money with Facebook videos, without using ads, you can look for sponsorships, although for that, you must have hundreds of thousands of views and a loyal audience before this will probably work with you.
There are several ways that will not only allow you to meet the requirements but will help you get a lot of fans. Some techniques are somewhat fast and others a little slower, but they all work and will help you to generate your monetization empire on Facebook.
1. Use Facebook Groups to reach the goal and Win Fans
Using Facebook groups with large numbers of members can be profitable; you just have to follow a series of recommendations or abide by the rules of the group to avoid being flagged a spammer
2. Buy social momentum on Facebook Pages with Fans
There are pages on Facebook that sells shares or mentions for approximately a few dollars. They share it on their page, and in turn, you earn new Fans, video reproductions, and you get a little more presence on Facebook.
You can gain from 0 to 500 fans for a mention on this type of page or even more. However, it depends on the type of video you share. It also depends on the page, as not all of them work for all the videos.
3. Invest in Facebook Advertising and quickly meet Facebook requirements
This option is my favorite, you just have to start investing in Facebook ads, and although it requires knowledge, you can achieve your goals much faster.
