Most online businesses from retail, consumer, travel and food these days are turning to Facebook to get more customers. And why would they not? A great number of people can be reached from Facebook. Using Facebook as a business system, however, is up to the business owner.

While there are a lot of business owners that attest to the effectiveness of Facebook marketing, there are also many others who aren't convinced of its possibilities.For those who have brought their merchandise to the online platform using Facebook, there are different apps which can help them make the most out of this social networking site.

Ebay already has a unique program meant for their Facebook users. Radical Buy, on the other hand, is an application that immediately posts products and makes it visible in the customers? walls. There are also specialized applications like Music Blaster, Flame Tunes and Lemonade.

Facebook is not tied to selling products. You can sell your services online as well. With regards to the second money making usage (See Application Development below), anyone can sell various programming and Customization services online as well. Facebook partners with Paypal for these micro payment schemes.

- Program Development

The social network itself compensate several marketers who will help enhance their various programs available from monetizatization to promotion. The site will pay you you for suggestions that will help them develop these. Even third parties continue to post positions online for developing different applications for their companies. As yet, there's still a few people who are dedicated to creating applications. Because of this, looking for prospects won't be a big concern.

Not only content creation but also programming performs an important role in generating leads.

- Endorsing

Among the several ways to monetize from Facebook, affiliate marketing is one of the best. There are numerous sites looking to integrate completely different parts on Facebook that are noticeable to customers. Most use their own sites for cross-promotion. Quite similar to what you do with Google Adsense (although Google Adsense if not applicable in Facebook since the site doesn't run with a Java application) where ordinary people place ads in their personal space, affiliate marketing also works the same way. Websites like Amazon, Ebay and other big small businesses are constantly on the lookout for people to bring their advertisements.

These people promote their products in exchange for a comission. At times, some companies don?t even require for their products to be bought. Most of the time what?s needed is a form of action such as people trying their product or creating leads for companies.

With these three money making techniques in mind, you can be well on your way into making more than what you expected out of a social media management site that was once just a pastime.
