We all love chatting, sharing memes, news and videos on Facebook, don’t we?
But think this way for a second. What if you could make a serious amount of passive income just by doing this (by sharing videos, memes, news, image etc?).
Isn’t that fun? 😊
6 Steps To Monetize your Facebook videos
Here is the exact process on how you can monetize your Facebook page and make money from it.
1. Create A Facebook Page
You must have your own Facebook page to earn money from Facebook. You cannot monetize your personal Facebook profile or groups you have.
Meaning, Facebook doesn’t allow you to monetize your personal profiles or any of your Facebook groups.
If you don’t have a Facebook page, you can create one now:
How to Create Facebook Page?
To Create a Business Page you can directly go to https://www.facebook.com/business and click on Create a Page. Otherwise, follow the steps below to create other types of pages:
- Go to your Facebook Profile.
- Go to Pages.
- Click on Pages.
- After that Click On Create Page.
- Select Page Type Either Business or Brand or Community or Public Figure and click on Get Started.
- After that, Type Name and select Category for your Page.
- And follow the Steps given there and complete.
2. Get 10,000 Facebook Pages Likes / Followers
Facebook page alone is not enough to earn money from Facebook videos. You must have 10,000 Page likes/followers in order to monetize it.
If you have less than 10,000 followers, you will not be eligible to monetize your page videos.
So, to be eligible you have to wait until your page gets 10,000 followers.
How To Get 10,000 Likes On Facebook Page?
Getting 10,000 likes on your Facebook fan page is super easy.
To get 10,000 likes/followers, you need to do:
- Run paid promotion campaigns/ Facebook ads (Paid Way).
- Share the page with your friends.
- Post viral content.
- Share posts in popular groups.
- Get mentioned on other Facebook pages.
- Buy Facebook likes.
- Post regularly.
3. Add 3 Minute Long Videos
If you already have 10,000 followers on your Facebook page, then it’s time to upload videos in it.
To earn money from Facebook videos, you must upload videos that are longer than 3-minutes.
Videos shorter than that are not eligible for monetization. Because Facebook cannot run video ad in the middle of a 15-sec long video.
4. Get 30,000 Video Views
To be eligible for Facebook page monetization, you need 30,000 views on your 3-minute long video.
The single view will only be counted if the user watches the video for 1-minute.
In case if your viewers leave video before 1-Minute, views will not be counted.
