Ads can be run on a per-impression or per-click basis. Facebook shows you what bids are for ads similar to yours, so you know if your bid is in line with others in your industry. You also can set daily limits so there’s no risk of blowing your budget.
If your business has an offer or event going on at your store, set up a few Facebook ads that appear only to people within a short distance of your store. Have these ads appear a few days prior to the event and on mobile devices while the event is happening. You may want to reach some people the day of the event who happen to be in the area and checking their Facebook account on their smartphones.
While some of these are great ideas..others, like Mechanical Turk seem to take a lot of time for very little $. The eHow seems to work. Another suggestion while you are looking for work is to list your resume at sites that pay you when potential employers download your resume. They collect a fee and give you part of it. Resumark.com even pays you when people you’ve invited have their resumes downloaded. I think it’s about $1 for your own resume and $.50 for people you’ve invited..again, not going to get rich but might as well get paid for looking for a job!
@dasjung If your takeaway is that I don’t have courtesy or that I’m down playing graphic design then you are completely mistaken. Not once did I downplay a profession! It seems you may just be looking for a fight for some reason. Borderline trolling.
36. Painting Service – Painting services are another common side hustle for college students. If you have time on weekends and during the summer, you can paint houses or join a painting company. It’s not easy, but it can pay well in the right neighborhoods.
The average pay for these jobs is about $9 per hour, and some companies offer health, dental, even matching 401k plans for their employees. Here are a few characteristics and supplies you should have:
You wish there are some honest people on this site? It’s people like you that makes the internet marketing industry look so bad. The fact is, I’ve made money with this system. In fact, I showed you the results I was getting.

7. Post frequently and consistently. Don’t worry about overdoing the posts – as long as they are spaced evenly through the day, you’ll be fine. Only 16% of your fans will see one post (if even that), as news feeds easily become over populated. The more you post, the better your chances are of being seen. However, do remember to focus on quality over quantity – every post should be of value, not just something thrown quickly together.
As for difference between blog and forums, there are many. But the main one is that blogs are usually written by one (or few) person (s). But on forums, anyone can register, comment, and interact with others. Forums are more of a discussion type of site.
Great tips, Mike! Thanks for the extra info on the CPC. And makes a lot of sense on reach vs actions. I think I’m often drawn to the notion of exposure and awareness, which you’re exactly right on how that’s hard to measure!
If you want to give it a try here are a few of the things to keep in mind: You must be at least 21 years old, have at least one year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. (three years if you are under 23 years old), have a valid US driver’s license and pass a background check.
My posts now gain 10% of views from the page follower numbers. Interactions increase when I advertise the same post for a longer period of time. Also, when these posts get shared by other groups/public pages it increases to 200% when it’s picked widely.
Instagram.com isn’t just for sharing interesting pics or showing off your skinny waist in a corset. These days, photographers like Daniel Arnold have learned that he can make $15,000 in one day from the site. Even 15-year-old Ryan Parrilla has gotten in on the action and sells his beautiful Instagram photos as prints.
If you are not utilizing video ads on Facebook, you are missing out on a huge opportunity. Advertising has always been visual, but when you augment video content with the power to target your ideal audience the impact can be huge. Facebook’s Newsfeed algorithm is placing a lot of weight on videos, and for good reason.
The free site screens you when you sign up, asking a range of questions so you can be sent the surveys which will be suitable for you. You can also join up with a social media account like Facebook or LinkedIn instead of using your email address. Filling out surveys for money with Opinion Outpost will first give you Opinion Points – with 10 points worth $1. Most surveys will take between 10 and 30 minutes and are worth anything from $1 to $5. Typical survey time is around 15 minutes, and participants are also entered into quarterly prize draws, touted to be for $10,000! However some people think their surveys don’t come around often enough, and completing some surveys will enter you into prize draws rather than paying out cash.
I personally love anything to do with affiliate marketing. One site I usually promote is the company Envato (Mainly because I am a web designer). They have a website called http://themeforest.net. They have an affiliate program where if you drive traffic to their site and they pay for something, you get a portion of the profit.
So I guess I’m not understanding correctly I placed a $5 ad on FB and card was charged $35.71. ad ran from wed to Sunday. It began counting down my $5 budget each day. $5 to $4.71 to $4 and so on. Seems misleading, unless I didn’t read the fine print. 1st ad I’ve run
Once you’ve decided which audience you want to replicate and expand on, you can make the audience larger (more broad) or smaller (more specific and similar to your original audience). At the most similar level, Facebook is going to find you the top 1 percent of users with similar traits, in your target country. At the opposite level, optimizing for reach, Facebook will display your ads to the 10 percent of users in your target country who are most like your target audience.
Our review: The surveys usually take around 10 minutes and are pretty easy to complete. You have to be as honest as possible as they have a “strike system”. 3 bad surveys and you’re out (we like to see it as a challenge).
The knitting and crochet supply site Kitterly uses Carousel ads to retarget potential customers with products they have already viewed on the Kitterly website, resulting in a 3.4 times return on ad spend.
Freebie trading is a real money maker. But it takes a special person to master the techniques and be consistent with the process. It involves Freebie Sites that provide users with cash rewards or physical prized for trying out services or products. The services can be free or be very inexpensive. They are things you would normally do, such as getting your credit report, but you get paid! You might not make a full-time income doing Freebie Trading but with some work, you can certainly supplement your income. The other great benefit is that you can do this whenever you want and set your own work schedule. Read my interview with a Freebie Trader to learn more about how it works. In his first year, he grossed $28K!
One method is being an affiliate at a mega-site such as Amazon.com, where commissions are up to 25 percent. Anytime anyone buys a product you’re pitching, you get a cut. And you can choose from more than a million products, including gift cards or computers.

Thank you for your post. While reading this especially the Apps section, I was glad until I checked to find that most of them are restricted to certain countries. Do you mind if you give me some places I can start the Apps kind of business online? (Considering I’m from Nigeria)
Hi Avtar! Great to hear from you. Yeah, this was my first foray into Facebook Ads, and we don’t quite have any others on the team who handle it full time. We’re most always after organic reach! Might be a good chance to dig in here and learn a bit – Power Editor is such a great tip! I know just where to go the next time we run an ad. Thanks!
All of Facebook’s ad campaigns run through the Facebook Ads Manager tool, which you can access via a direct link at facebook.com/ads, or by clicking “Manage Ads” in the drop-down menu on your Facebook account, or by clicking any of the CTAs on your Facebook page.
Test different video ads to determine what converts best. To optimize the video ad campaign, test more than two ad sets; because the first video ad outperforms the second doesn’t mean it will do better than the third video ad too.
As just one idea my friend shared with me, many people don’t have good home listing photos of the home they’re trying to sell. If you notice, many of these pictures, aside from the ones done by professional photographers, have bad lighting, show clutter, etc. If you’re good at taking pictures and have a nice camera, you might be able to sell your photo taking services to real estate agents or to people trying to sell their own home.
During the last year, Facebook has emerged as a real contender for the online video platform throne. In wake of several new video features being introduced and a heavy video focus from Mark Zuckerberg, the social media giant has quadrupled its video views over the last year.
48. Renting Out Your Garage or Driveway – If you have extra space in your driveway (or side yard), you could rent that space out as well to people looking to store property, like boats or RVs. In many areas, there are HOAs that prevent people from parking this type of equipment, and you could help solve that problem for them while earning a little extra cash.
13. Do User Testing – Sites like UserTesting.com are always looking for users to rate and give feedback about websites. Website owners post gigs to the site, and you simply login and give feedback and usability ratings on different websites and online apps. You can earn up to $10 for each test you participate in.
“In an effort to distance themselves from the incorrect metrics, Facebook is deprecating [the old metrics] and introducing ‘new’ metrics in September. Essentially, they’re coming up with new names for what they were meant to measure in the first place,” the memo said.
