So I decided to put together this article with tips to monetize your social media.

Ways To Monetize Your Social Media

Coming up I will discuss several ways you can monetize your social media channels. Plus make your followers happy!

1. Get Paid Via Sponsored Posts Or Collaborations

Getting paid for using your social media channels like Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, etc. is crucial if you want to set the ground rules for earning money online. Let’s take an example from sites like OnlyFans. Some of the best OnlyFans girls have great tactics for earning extra income by selling creative content to their followers.

And with influencer marketing being on the rise, you can grow your following and income by following a couple of tips:

  • You need to reach out to brands for collaboration – be active and take on deals;
  • Promote products you have tested and believe in;
  • Post high-quality content that will help you engage with your audience;
  • Answer fan questions, ask for their opinions regarding a particular topic, or organize giveaways.

Most brands use the influencer marketing strategy to spread the word about their products. And if you establish a collaboration with some of these brands, you can get paid via cash or get free products in exchange for your advertisement.

Sponsored Posts

One way of earning money online is via sponsored posts. If you’ve established a blog where you document your journey or talk about a different topic. Sponsored posts have a lot of benefits since you can offer subscribers good deals, connect with your audience and educate them regarding certain topics.

The sum you can make with the sponsored posts varies. Some influencers state they’ve earned from $5,000-$7,000 per month. So, start providing quality content to your fans, trustworthy reviews on products, and honest feedback.


Collaborating with brands is all about networking. The influencer network is the place where you can make a deal with a brand, an individual who offers services, or a company to promote their products or services.

2. Create An Online Course Or A Training Program

Many influencers take this step in boosting their passive income. If you have a decent following base, you can monetize your social media presence by selling a course or a training program you create. In fact I have a course on this money making subject. And I teach people how to set up a course in my 1 on 1 business consulting program.

Selling online courses is a great way to add value to your fans and earn. Is your social media content related to any field in particular, for example, graphic design, fitness, or nutrition? If you’ve managed to reduce your weight by following a healthy diet, you can share your tips and advice with your fans regarding nutrition and exercise.

Or if you are a fitness coach, you can create a course where you’ll highlight the relevant aspects of exercising, tips, advice, etc. The strategy of selling services directly to your fans includes weekly or daily posting on social media, scheduling meetings with your fans/clients, and engaging daily.

3. Affiliate Marketing

Some people hate it but the majority love it. Affiliate marketing is a niche that offers you the opportunity to monetize from your social media following.

Keys to focus on:

  • Find products or services that align with your beliefs and audience expectations. If you’d like to help people to live their best lives, then you might want to explore being an affiliate for my bestselling courses!
  • Search for reliable and reputable affiliate partners;
  • Do not bother your audience too much about the products you’ll advertise – one post in a while is more than enough;
  • Drive organic traffic to your website and present the affiliate links there.

4. Direct Followers to a Website

Another option is to sell products via a website and use your social media accounts to direct people here. If you’ve already got a social media presence, you may be able to set up a website to sell merch. You can direct people to product pages on your website through links in your account description or through comments and tweet threads accompanying viral content.

It’s worth noting that you can also use your website to direct people to your social media accounts. This could include adding social media buttons that allow visitors to easily follow you on all social media platforms, or by embedding social media content directly onto your site such as embedding TikTok videos on a website.

How to Monetize Your Instagram Presence?

One way of monetizing your social media presence on Instagram is by selling products via a social media shop. You can set up the shop, but you need to follow certain guidelines and rules:

  • Create your account and confirm you are eligible to sell;
  • Connect your profile on Instagram to a Facebook page;
  • Design the shop by uploading pics and a product catalog;
  • Start selling after your account has been approved.
