Here are 4 different ways you can make money on Facebook.

- Fan Subscriptions: You can create a Facebook Page for your business and set up a subscription based model. This feature is available for mostly popular Facebook pages with large & active followers. This facility can be availed as per invitation only.
- Collaborate With Brands: Facebook has created a platform called Brand Collabs Manager where you can connect with many brands related to your content. If both parties accept, then you can promote the brands through your content. And for that also you have to get valid approval from Facebook. Applicable for large Facebook Pages or Groups with active followers.
- Subscription Groups: If you run a Facebook Group which is very active, large and offers value then you can ask for subscription model. For that you need to apply as per the eligibility rules and if you get the approval you can start accepting paid subscription & earn money from your Facebook Group.
Although it looks like there are various ways Facebook is offering monetization techniques, but the eligibility criteria is not that easy. For more details you can refer to this link (official Facebook Website).

- Step 4: If you work properly, Facebook Group can become a perfect place like a Forum where people can ask their problems and get solution. Provide helpful content, help regularly and grow with time. This way you can gain the trust of your audience.
So, when you can take your Group audience to a certain level, you can actually utilize that audience to do business a make money.
