How to Make Money with Facebook

If memory serves me right, I think it was two years ago when I started going on Facebook.  I’m not one to succumb to pressure, but I finally got on the social networking bandwagon.  I have to admit that it was highly amusing to find out how my nerdy high school classmate looked stunning now, or how my orthodontist was a huge fan of puppies.  It was interesting to discover things about people I once met but never imagined would come across again.

More than connecting people and spying on their lives, Facebook provides opportunities for making money.  In between breaks from playing online poker on Facebook, you can actually make that virtual money real.  So how can you make money with your Facebook account?

If you didn’t already know, there are some Facebook applications which help you sell your stuff online.  One of these is Garage Sale.  It’s tied up with Buy.com, and allows you to sell your old items to your hundreds of friends.

You can also create a Facebook fan page to promote your website.  Try to be a little more engaging by showing your fans that you care about what they need, and are not just out there to sell hard.  Happy customers of your service or product will eventually post on your page, and testify to the quality of your merchandise.

What could be more convenient than earning money online?  With a few clicks of the mouse, you’ll be well on your way to making money in ways you never thought possible.  You can start by adding me up on Facebook…
