You can make money by using social media platforms in various ways

Social Media Manager

These days having social media pages with multiple social media platforms are a must for common individuals, professionals, and businesses. Sadly, most people and businesses do not have the necessary skills to scale their social pages. Even when they have skills, they do not have time. This creates room for semi-skilled people or even students to work as social media managers.

Social Media Marketing

Social Media Marketing is almost similar to Social Media Manager. The only difference is the goal. While managing social media accounts could be only related to creating social media posts and posting on various social sites. Marketing could be related to promoting products, running ads, selling products, etc. through social media sites or email marketing.

Businesses need social media presence. They need to have facebook, instagram, twitter, linkedin, etc. accounts. Having accounts on social media platforms is not enough, the social media profiles for businesses need to have a large following when I say large I mean businesses need to have hundreds of thousands of followers on social media profiles. Once you have a large following, your job does not end, you also need to regularly publish content on social media and engage the audience.

Since social media marketing is a daunting task, a lot of businesses hire a social media agency or social media marketer for business promotion. If you are good with handling social media platforms, you can earn as a marketer.

Social Media Promotion

You can not only use social media to market someone else’s products but market your own products and drive customers to your store through social media promotion. You don’t even have to own your own store, you can promote your products that you have listed on various marketplaces like ebay, Amazon, Etsy, etc.

Selling Products on Social Media

A lot of Social Media Platforms also allow you to sell your products directly. For instance, you can create a shop page on your facebook page or list your product on facebook Marketplace.
