Facebook’s Money

Why Are You Struggling to Make Money Online with Facebook?

No excuses. If you are struggling to make money with Facebook you refuse to do a few key things on a daily basis. The whole science of money making using social media sites is simple. Really. Why do few make a dime online, then?

Well they ignore simple, so simple becomes difficult. Or, they figure that simple looks way too easy, so they develop more complicated systems, which of course, lead to failure. Sorry dude, or dudette, you are not that sophisticated, to follow a complex system, and make money with it. It is just plain dumb, anyway.

What is at the core of seeking out complex, or complicated, when it comes to making money on Facebook?

Greed. You are greedy, so you want to make money online now, and you lack patience, and you are desperate.

If you know anything about prospering, you need to set up a fair exchange. Like, you make money on Facebook by sharing something valuable with your Facebook buddies. Share helpful blog posts, or videos, or webinars, all for free.

Now, after you share this value each day, over the course of weeks, and months, you will begin to RECEIVE value, in the form of money.

Why Do So Many Struggle to Make Money Online with FB?

Well they refuse to GIVE value so they do not GET value. Remember, greed drives many people in the online realm.

Greedy people try to get before they give, using silly systems, or posting ads all day long, ads that do not provide any form of value to their readers. Now, you might wonder, how can you give value, by writing blog posts daily, and shooting videos, and doing all these things?

By busting you’re a**. You work, intelligently, and persistently, and you give value, by writing blog posts each day, and by sharing these on your Facebook profile each day, and across 20, 50 or 1000 relevant Facebook Groups each day, and you will get clicks on your ads. People will join your home business. Promise.

But busting your tail makes it all happen. Smart, intelligent work, not mindless acts, like posting the same ad to 100 Facebook Groups daily, brings you money.

Facebook Money Master

The Most Fitting Analogy

You open a corner store. If you want to make money what do you do? Well you work 8, 12 or 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. You stock your shelves. You are patient. You make your store front enticing. You maintain a clean shop. As word spreads around about your shop, through your efforts, people walk in the door, buy your products and you make money.

OK, you open a cyber store…aka, start a home business. If you want to make money online what do you do? Well, you work 8, 12 or 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. You stock your cyber-shelves with valuable blog posts and videos, creating content daily.

You then share this content on relevant Facebook Groups daily.

You are patient. You make your website or blog enticing. You maintain a clear, clean-looking and clutter free website and blog. As word spreads around about your shop, through your content creation efforts, people visit your blog and website, buy your products or join your team, and you make money with Facebook.

Dwell on This Analogy

It will change your home business for good, and it will make you take a high energy approach to your Facebook efforts, if you are willing to embrace it. Treat your home business like an offline business. Create helpful, relevant content. Share on relevant Facebook Groups, and your profile.

Use this approach to start making money online with Facebook today.

    hi Ryan, well, you got it right with this approach, but it’s totally the opposite of what the others teach (hint: “it’s so easy to make money online, you just need a computer and some basic knowledge, no experience required whatsoever”) — does this sound familiar? LOL

    By the way, I’d love to know how you guys make $ with FB? What methods do you focus on specifically if you could share?

    • Ryan Biddulph March 27, 2013, 6:56 pm

      Hi Codrut, I make money with Facebook by cash gifting primarily. I also generate Adsense revenue through my 2 blogs by attracting visitors through social networks like FB.

      How do you make money through FB?

      Ryan

      • Codrut Turcanu March 28, 2013, 11:41 am

        Cash gifting… could you explain?

        I don’t make money with FB… I think people who look at it as a direct cash generator smell like MLM-ers… I consider them as men and women wanting to expand their “network”, looking to “build relationships” just to fill their pockets with hard cold cash money… greedy people as you call them…

        How’s your adsense sites doing, did they survive recent Google updates and algo changes?

        • Ryan Biddulph March 29, 2013, 2:21 pm

          Adsense going OK Dokey buddy 😉 Moving along nicely. Churning out quality content, targeted with keywords, really key stuff here.

          Sure, cash gifting is promoting a concept. Market a website, generate cash. My site delves in a bit deeper: http://cash4alltoday.com

  • Toshiba Burton February 23, 2013, 4:54 pm

    Awesome Post Ryan! I can definitely vouch for what you’re discussing here. Creating content consistently increases exposure to your website, it gives others the opportunity to learn more about what you have to offer.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 30, 2013, 10:15 am

      You got that right Toshiba. Simply creating helpful content helps you to position yourself as an authority. Thanks for stopping by buddy. Ryan

  • Christopher February 5, 2013, 1:49 am

    In my opinion, if one really need to make money online, I think it would be better if they must know first on how to use Facebook in generating cash. There are some people who are using Facebook in a wrong way, that’s why it also gets hard for them to make money online.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 31, 2013, 8:39 pm

      Yep, really key to use Facebook effectively Christopher. Learn from the pros, be patient, make close friends with individuals and you can effectively make money using the network. Thanks for sharing. Ryan

  • Codrut February 3, 2013, 6:14 am

    hi Ryan, well, you got it right with this approach, but it’s totally the opposite of what the others teach (hint: “it’s so easy to make money online, you just need a computer and some basic knowledge, no experience required whatsoever”) — does this sound familiar? LOL

  • Bram January 30, 2013, 6:46 pm

    As your example aptly illustrated your advice is not really particular to facebook but good advice nonetheless. We want to make a ton of money on facebook with no work obviously! Or at least by making out own time more +EV then when spent otherwise. I’d love to see some numbers of what posting to facebook’s value is exactly but my guess would be it’s extremely hard to quantify giving all the variables. Anyway I am going to work provide more value to my facebook friends from here on.

  • rachid January 28, 2013, 6:08 pm

    great post , I have tried a lot of time to make money from facebook but without any resulte , I have a fitness page but it very hard to get fans

  • David January 28, 2013, 5:05 am

    Actually you are right. A whole round of excessive donkey work finally pays off as a few dollars at the end of the day when people click on to the links we post on facebook and visit the websites . It is not smart work. We need to have some really innovative ideas to attract maximum likes or clicks without slogging all day.

  • Rey January 28, 2013, 1:44 am

    I guess one needs to know how Facebook actually works and then choose to use it to make money. If I randomly pick up a social networking site and use it to promote my content or business without knowing much about how to use it better, I am obviously going to face problems or struggle to get through. Complete knowledge about the source is a must.

  • Praveen Soni January 27, 2013, 7:10 am

    Hello Ryan Biddulph,
    I agree with all your points and all the points are very effective. Facebook is the best source to make money but we need a hard work and dedication to be successful in the online business. these tips are best for newbie bloggers.
    thanks for sharing Ryan 🙂

  • Salman Ahmad January 27, 2013, 6:12 am

    Well, i have just invested a lot of money to buy a Facebook Page, And i guess i can earn something from it.

  • Thai directory January 27, 2013, 1:59 am

    hello Ryan,

    very effective article this is Ryan ,i totally agree with u that Facebook is the best source of earning money but for this you should have to be dedicated with total devotion and one thing we have to remember that we should always have passions in mind
    very nice article keep it up

    • Ryan Biddulph March 27, 2013, 6:58 pm

      Thanks Mohd, being persistent and mixing your passions with your FB marketing campaign can certainly take you far in the online realm. Thanks for sharing with us.

  • JPT January 26, 2013, 3:42 am

    A good traffic doesn’t come easy. To gain success in social network marketing, you really need a lot of persistence and dedication. Building a quality networks on social media sites still works best than just simply sharing your links. Very nice post here. Thanks.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 27, 2013, 6:59 pm

      Building those networks really is key, salient point JPT. If you simply make a ton of friends each day on FB your job becomes infinitely easier. Thanks for sharing.

      Ryan

  • Jatin Singhroha January 26, 2013, 12:54 am

    Well, I am not a big Facebook Marketer but i think we can easily make money by lanuching our services on facebook and we can also permote our services with facebook ads. We can easily get clients for our services from facebook.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 27, 2013, 7:00 pm

      I can see you having some success there Jatin, good points. Thanks for sharing.

  • Sarah Park January 24, 2013, 12:16 am

    Facebook is probably the most influencial among all the social media available. And it is not difficult to use. We just have to have better knowledge to maximize its uses. We also have to be dedicated in making money as well as giving satisfactory contents.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 27, 2013, 7:01 pm

      Persistence counts a ton Sarah. All that I have learned on FB has flowed to me by being persistent, and working the network daily. Thanks for sharing.

  • Lisa January 23, 2013, 10:20 pm

    Hey Ryan! Love this post! So many people fail at Facebook marketing because all they do is throw ads at people and constantly pitch them.
    Providing value and caring about others (whether they buy something from you or not) is the way to go!
    Look forward to more cool insights from you!
    Best,
    Lisa

    • Ryan Biddulph March 27, 2013, 7:03 pm

      Aha! The key word Lisa, “care”, love that you used that one. If you genuinely care for others on Facebook your job grows easier over time. You will become uber popular on the social site. Thanks for sharing. Ryan

  • Ja January 22, 2013, 6:05 am

    Your right! What we should really focus first is to create a relevant, original and unique content which can really help our readers or visitors and I’m sure money will surely come on our way.

  • Mohd Aktar January 21, 2013, 7:15 am

    Hey dude,

    You shared a research based content here to make money with facebook. Mostly people don’t know how to use facebook to make money online.

    It’s my request to you, please share some information regarding, How to use facebook ads for awareness?

    Thanks 🙂

  • sanchit January 21, 2013, 2:26 am

    Hello,
    I think facebook is a good way for advertising of your product and services. By this way facebook is beneficial to make money online, by selling our products & services.
    Thanks!

  • Jason January 20, 2013, 7:38 am

    I think Facebook has got an Free Online Store where one can sell products and goods. It’s how we use the time properly in Facebook, that we are going to earn.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 29, 2013, 4:33 pm

      Agreed Jason, if you put in the legwork the network can be hella prospering. Thanks Dude. Ryan

  • Omar Habib January 17, 2013, 11:54 pm

    Hi Ryan,

    You make good post about making money online with Facebook. Yes, I know Facebook a is a good way of getting lots of traffic and these days people search on Facebook what they want. So, Bloggers have to think seriously about Facebook marketing.

    Thank You

    Omar Habib

    • Ryan Biddulph January 19, 2013, 6:09 am

      You got that right Omar! FB is a rapidly growing network and you can prosper with the site if you commit to it. Thanks for sharing!

  • Iteire Apollos January 17, 2013, 10:26 pm

    I appreciate the fact that you point out the greed online. Placing ads every where only frustrate your readers and does not add any value to your blog/site or social media accounts. I have developed the passion to give value and forget the money for now until i gain more control over my emotions. My blog is free from any kind of add and all my social media accounts only gives you the solution of what to do and not what to but.

    • Ryan Biddulph January 19, 2013, 6:14 am

      So key to be clear on selling Iteire! Good thing you are refraining from posting ads for now as you gain clarity. When you feel good about selling or adding ;), go for it. Thanks for sharing!

  • Edgar January 17, 2013, 8:03 pm

    Yeah! It’s almost useless tryng to make money with FB! You must have a good determinated strategy and dedication for another thing more important than FB.
    Good article.

    • Ryan Biddulph January 19, 2013, 6:15 am

      You can make money on the network if you work smart and persistently. Thanks for sharing Edgar!

  • Dean Saliba January 17, 2013, 5:41 pm

    I don’t make money on Facebook because I believe too many people mistrust the MMO industry. Hopefully my running book will fare better.

    • Ryan Biddulph January 19, 2013, 6:54 am

      Really key to lose that belief Dean so you CAN make money on FB 😉 Thanks for stopping by and sharing!

  • valentine January 17, 2013, 2:58 pm

    I wish i can start implementing your tips to start making money on facebook. Thanks for your encouraging words Ryan!

  • Annamalai Nagappan January 17, 2013, 12:11 pm

    Exactly, we should fix up a time and work properly like we are going to a job. If we take it easy for granted, then it could her out of her hands. Working sincerely brings you money.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 30, 2013, 11:38 am

  • Justin January 17, 2013, 11:09 am

    Hey Ryan, Good to see you here. Great thoughts here about earning money online an using Facebook to your advantage. I usually promote free products and services on FB that only require a sign up. These sign ups may eventually become paying customers in which I would receive a commission.

    Take Care.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 31, 2013, 8:41 pm

      Same here Justin, great to see you buddy. I like your strategies; by simply opening up and providing value through your Facebook account you can plant the seeds for a prospering present and future. Thanks for sharing. Ryan

  • Charles Rodrigues January 17, 2013, 12:39 am

    Very nice post. We all want to make money online. Facebook is definitely one source from where we can make money online. But yes too much competition has made it only difficult to make money via FB.

  • Ahmad Wali January 17, 2013, 12:38 am

    Nice one Ryan! Vision your future as a brand that everyone remember. However, many people struggle to maintain the running costs of their start-ups and day to day expenses.

  • larry January 16, 2013, 10:51 pm

    This is worth my time reading. I know millions of people use facebook daily and some swear by it for generating income but I think facebook has a lot of security issues right now. I can really relate to this article and you never know I just might give it a shot. THANKS…

  • babanature January 16, 2013, 10:17 am

    This is indeed a very great post, one worth sharing. I really do love facebook but to be honest, i’m not focusing my attention on it. But you tip is helpful and encouraging. I should work with it to see how it goes.

  • JamesW January 16, 2013, 9:06 am

    Interesting way of promotion and making money online. Facebook is powerful that’s true, but I think that there is too much competition out there?

    thanks for sharing

  • Rajkumar Jonnala January 16, 2013, 7:37 am

    In this world nothing is going to pay to us its only our great effort to pay us.its other thing that say efforts required some hard work for some one & for others its smart work,but it really require in any task.As i think blogging are the way of sharing ideas of ourselves to others,in the way of this ideas sharing there is chance of earning money.And its also true that most of the people are jumping on blogging field just because they want money and what they think is that they are going to be rich overnight.. Thanks a lot for spreading these words.

  • Chimezirim Odimba January 16, 2013, 1:04 am

    Legit money is only made by giving value. The internet will NOT change that. Therefore, we all should focus our energies on creating value for our readers and the money will follow naturally.

    • Ryan Biddulph March 29, 2013, 4:42 pm

      Super point Chimezirim, create the value and money naturally follows. By making a load of friends with folks daily and creating good, practical content, boy does this game become easier. Thanks so much for sharing my friend.

      Ryan

  • Ashraf Kamal January 15, 2013, 5:23 pm

  • Bhupendra January 14, 2013, 2:32 pm

    I am really glad by the way you write 🙂 .
    It’s true that most of the people are jumping on blogging field just because they want money and what they think is that they are going to be rich overnight.What should be noticed is that it’s not only the way you act that really matters but your perspective towards something also make a great change. Thanks a lot for spreading these words.

  • Clara January 14, 2013, 1:44 pm

    Hi Ryan,
    You’re right about these point. Since Facebook became the most popular social network todays, many of internet markerter can take adventage from it.

  • Vivek January 14, 2013, 9:09 am

    It reminds me inorder to make money online you don’t need to work hard, but have to act smart. And what an amazing Analogy. Thank you..

  • Adam Connell January 14, 2013, 7:06 am

    Ryan, a very interesting read indeed.

    I’ve started to distance myself from Facebook recently as they tighten their grip with promoted posts and the announcement of paid messages.

    Although, after reading this I’m tempted to get back on it and see what I can make out of it – cheers!

    • Ryan Biddulph January 16, 2013, 12:54 am

      Sure Adam go for it and see if FB still vibes with you. Thanks for sharing!

  • Jason January 14, 2013, 3:53 am

    Hi Ryan

    Many says that make money online is easy – I don’t think so if you don’t put your hard work on it.

  • Samuel January 14, 2013, 12:01 am

    Hey Ryan,

    Making money online, especially Facebook, your brand’s identity needs to be well known and respected.

    And to do that, you will need to work endless hours to make sure your brand is being “everywhere”.

    Thanks for the article!

  • Dave Lucas ( January 13, 2013, 6:31 pm

    I love your “corner store” analogy! I am incorporating it into a post I haven’t yet published about setting up a paywall for a blog.

    • Ryan Biddulph January 19, 2013, 6:58 am

      Cool thanks Dave! Let me know how the post works and of course shoot it to me so I can promote it for you. Hope all is well dude long time since we cyber-chatted 😉

  • Phillip Dews January 13, 2013, 6:15 pm

    Wow awesome post Ryan for sure.

    It still baffles me and I still get hundreds of emails each week from these so called guru’s wanting hundreds to get their push button system!

    I think also that providing value in commenting on posts can help although this comment is not really that valuable!

    I remember back in 2009 I set up my blog and built it over the following 12 -14 months or so and had written 3 eBooks on the subject (which I gave away for free, again value) but gave up and lost it all to concentrate on my web design business. Although I do regret not backing everything up I am happy to be back again with my blog and intent to write another book soon!

    Actually I am doing a series of blog posts for aspiring bloggers that probably would be a good investment for me to turn into a book eventually!

    great post again dude!
    ~ Phillip

    • Ryan Biddulph January 19, 2013, 6:56 am

      Thanks so much Phillip I appreciate you buddy! As always sharing awesome value wherever you go!!

  • Adesoji January 13, 2013, 3:43 pm

    Most fitting analogy.

    You got it right Ryan.

    I get loads of mails from people seeking to make money online from Facebook. I tell them what to do but I don’t get a feedback.

    Maybe the find my advise slow or hard to follow, I can’t say.

    Nice read

    • Ryan Biddulph January 14, 2013, 4:01 am

      Dude spot on Adesoji lol, these folks just are too lay or scared to do things the right way.

    Thanks for the tips. I have been trying to advertise with facebook but haven’t had much success as of yet. Your article gives me the motivation to not give up. I never really thought of the idea that I need to give a lot more than I am getting. You’re article makes a lot of sense and I am sure it has helped many people so far.

  • Ryan Biddulph January 12, 2013, 11:21 pm
