So, you’ve decided to try to make money with Facebook videos? Or maybe you’re an Instagram star that wants to finally use their talents for more than just fame? Well, you’ve come to the right place.
Before we get started, please know that making money with Instagram and Facebook isn’t as easy as it once was. Facebook video monetization system has had a bit of an overhaul and only select users can easily use their monetization system.
Currently, the only native way to do it is through their Audience Network, but even that you have to apply for and it is only available for third party mobile applications that integrate Facebook’s technology.
Instagram has similar rules, as it is owned by Facebook. The best way to make money on either is to use third party sources like TuneCore or Patreon. For the rest of the article, I’ll exclusively refer to Facebook but know that most of it will also apply to Instagram.
