Hey! If you are new here, welcome to the blog! If not, glad to have you back!
In today’s blog post, we are going to be discussing 5 different social media posts that will make you money. Social media is one of the best ways for individuals and businesses to make money and there are many different forms of promotion you can do using social media. So, without further ado, let’s get straight into #1.

1. Affiliate Posts
If you are not familiar with affiliate marketing, it simply where you promote a product or service and receive a commission (a percentage paid to you of the cost of the product or service) for each sale you make through your affiliate link. Creating affiliate marketing posts for social media is a highly effective way of promoting your affiliate links and earning an income from them. An example of an affiliate social post would be the one below. I use this design for promoting this Free Business Book by Russel Brunson.
2. Product/Service Promotion
Do you have a product or service that you offer? If the answer is yes, then great! that’s awesome! Are your promoting that product through social media posts? Well, if the answer is no, we need to change that. One of the best ways to get sales for your product or service is to target the people that already know about you or your brand and those people start with your social following. They already know who you are or what your business is, so they should know what you offer. Go onto all your social media platforms and at least once per week, publish a promotional post about a product or service that you offer. It doesn’t need to be too “salesly” but it does need to spark interest. An added tip you can do is to tie it to a discount or offer to create more interest and awareness.
If you haven’t ran a giveaway/competition yet, you are missing out! Why, because these type of social media posts are one of the best ways to get organic awareness for your account or brand. Everyone loves free stuff and the exposure you can get by holding a giveaway/competition is endless. The best giveaways I have ran for my businesses clients have been when I added email opt-ins as part of the entry process. Why? Because after the competition ended and i had chosen the winner, I was able to give out discounts to all the others who entered as a thank you for taking part. This method has resulted in many sales for my clients.
4. InFluencer Marketing
Another great form of social media post that can make you money is influencer posts. If you are not familiar with influencer marketing, it is where you work with an individual or account that has a large following and you use them to promote your product or service. Brands such as movement watches do a lot of influencer marketing. Influencer marketing posts are more of an investment as they can range anywhere from $50 for a post to upwards of $1000-$10,000 depending on the influencer, however if you pick the right influencer with the right audience, there is some serious money to be made!
5. Boosted Posts/Advertising
The final type of social media post I am going to tell you about is boosted posts/advertising. This is where you take either an existing post or publish a new one with the intention of advertising it to a wider audience. Advertising allows you to reach new people and accounts that are not currently following you already. You can boost your existing facebook and instagram posts for as little as $1 and depending on the area of the world you are targeting, you can reach a large amount of people, ranging from a few thousand, to millions! If you want to create a really effective social media post to drive sales and earn income, you can pair a product/service post with advertising- a killer combination for a social post!
Well, I hope you got some value from today’s post and I will catch you in the next one…
One last thing. Thanks for being here, I genuinely appreciate it :)
