Well, back to the topic.
In this post, I’ll be revealing my top six proven ways you can make money online with social media. Then, I’ll cover the best way(s) to learn them.
So, for what you must have been waiting for.
How do you make money with Social Media?
I did my research, and it turns out that there are actually many many ways you can make money from and with social media.
Quick Money Making Hacks:
8 Proven Ways to Make Money Online With Social Media.
1. 𝐎𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐕𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐨 𝐄𝐝𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐬 𝐚 𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐒𝐨𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐌𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐚 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐭𝐡 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐬.
Even if you don’t want to fully handle accounts, you can make good money off video editing as well.
The truth is; content creation is the new trend.
Look around you, and you’ll notice that everybody now creates content.
Content creators are now everywhere you go.
But not everybody must be a content creator. These content creators need people to edit their videos too!
They can’t always do everything by themselves.
So, what if you learned how to edit videos like them?
And if you can’t keep up with creating and editing your own videos, you can reach out to them to help them edit theirs.
Think about it.
I even took a video editing class early last year. During one of the classes, my tutor randomly mentioned how a big company in Nigeria (I think Tecno, Infinix, or Oppo.
I can’t really remember exactly which) reached out to him to edit a 30-second advert video for one of their product unveiling.
He mentioned how he charged them somewhere close to N1m ($1200+) and refused to work for them for negotiating slightly less.
I had my mouth wide open! For just one video??
But I guess that’s the level he was at, anyway.
The point is; video editing is a very necessary skill.
(In case you’re wondering, my tutor then is a popular content creator in Nigeria. I won’t mention his name for privacy reasons).
Also, there’s this video editing style currently in high demand – Alex Hormozi style of editing.
So many short-form content creators are rushing it right now.
If you learn and perfect this style of video editing and learn how to market yourself, you’ll definitely not lack money for a long time.
I promise you that.
Alex Hormozi style of video editing. That’s it. That’s the name.
2. 𝐎𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐊𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐚𝐬 𝐚 𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐥𝐥.
With the knowledge of Social Media Management and Marketing, you can help clients manage their Social Media accounts.
I have friends that all they do is help people and businesses handle their Social Media accounts. That’s literally their main source of income.
Business owners don’t always have time to focus on Social Media, so they usually let others handle it. Then, of course, the business owners pay them for their services.
With the right skillset, you can position yourself on the market and get these people and businesses to hire you.
3. 𝐅𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐬.
With the knowledge of Social Media Marketing, Social Media Management, Video Editing, etc., you can actually become a freelancer.
That is, after you’ve mastered these skills to a certain level, you can take them to freelancing platforms and market these skills there.
What these platforms do is bring thousands of clients looking for people with skills to hire.
Now, there are always countless jobs in high demand looking for people to complete them.
And since it’s a global platform, they make their payments in dollars too.
So if you’ve been looking for a way to earn in dollars, then this is a great opportunity as well.
In fact, as at the time of making this post, I checked and saw over 20,000 job postings on Upwork just for the range of skills I’ve mentioned in this post so far.
More are still being posted everyday.
Some Popular examples of freelance platforms that you can offer these services include; Upwork, Fiverr, PeoplePerHour, Freelancer.com, etc.
4. 𝐅𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦 𝐀𝐜𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐬.
There are platforms where you can sell a well-performing Instagram account for good bucks.
That is, you grow your Instagram accounts from small till it starts performing really well, and then you can sell them.
I’ve seen people on Facebook sell IG accounts for up to $1,000. That’s for just one account!
It usually takes around 2-3 months to grow a 10K page, and a page with 10k followers can be sold for around $100 or even more.
The best part is you can even grow multiple accounts at the same time.
5. Make Money As A Social Media Influencer
When people mention “Influencer”, what comes to your mind is a very popular person, like a celebrity or something.
Well, you’re not too far from the truth. But you mustn’t be a celebrity to be an influencer.
You just need to grow an audience in a specific field or niche, and people or brands in that same niche can pay you to advertise or promote their brand/products.
So, when you focus on a particular social media platform, like Instagram or TikTok, and grow your audience to a considerable number in a particular niche, people in that same niche will definitely reach out to you for promotional offers.
6. 𝐀𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠.
Wait, hear me out!
I know many of us are now avoiding anything “affiliate marketing” because we think it’s a scam. Well, with what some “wannabe” affiliate markers in the past have done, I don’t blame anyone for having misconceptions.
But in reality, affiliate marketing is a very legit and lucrative business model.
Let’s say you build your audience in a particular niche, say your contents are about chips for instance.
Since all your content is tailored for people interested in chips, if you start selling chips, you’ll most likely pull in plenty of customers.
So imagine selling chips without actually even owning chips!
With a good following or audience of people interested in chips, you can get chips sellers who offer affiliate marketing for their products.
This way, you can help them sell their chip products, and they’ll pay you a percentage or commission for every chip you sell.
Now remember your audience is focused on chips, and since you post about it a lot, they’ll get to know, like, and trust you.
This way, you’ll definitely make more sales and even have returning customers.
Note that I only used chips as an example in this post. However, it’s not only applicable to chips alone. It can be literally anything at all.
Your account can be about phone or car reviews or even Real Estate.
And if you can scale well enough, you can start helping marketers advertise and sell their phones and cars.
Who knows, you could even scale and sign a deal with Tesla, Toyota or AirBnB someday. 😉
It can also be anything digital. Say you’re talking only about Forex, and you have people following you on that topic.
If you don’t have a course, you can become an affiliate marketer for people who have courses on forex.
This applies to almost anything at all. You can learn of the various niches you can select from to achieve this.
Makes sense?.. In the past, I have written about how to start Affiliate marketing for beginners, read How to Start Affiliate Marketing in 2023 [A-Z Beginner Guides].
I also recommend you investing a token (currently less than $30) in learning Affiliate marketing from the Super Affiliate Handbook.

Dropshipping is a similar business model/concept, just that this time, you resell at your own price.
Note: Please note that a whole lot goes into all of this. Don’t expect to lazy around and think the money will flow in like magic.
Also, there are still many, many more ways to make money with Social Media than this. So do well to do your own research.
I can never stop mentioning blogging in my ways of earning both passive income and full time hustle.
You can impart your knowledge, skill, and enthusiasm to others through blogging.
One of the advantages of blogging is the ability to work from home and create your own hours
It’s also easy to set up any business that matches your lifestyle and objectives while producing content on your blog from the comfort of your home.
Blogging has really changed my life for the better and it gives me complete satisfaction when I look at all I’ve achieved as a blogger.
I’m looking forward to creating a free Blogging course in the near future, to bring up newbies in the blogosphere.
Now, on to the next phase.
WHERE TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH SOCIAL MEDIA?
Well, YouTube is a good option. You can watch tons of videos about where you’re interested in to get a better understanding of it.
However, YouTube isn’t the best. You can’t get the best possible value from YouTube for several reasons.
One, there are way too many videos and getting the perfect one can be extremely difficult.
Secondly, not everyone on YouTube will reveal everything for “free”. There are still certain knowledge and/or processes they hold back.
It’s a good place to start and gain better knowledge/understanding/insight of a topic, but you’ll still need more than that in the long run.
This brings us to the best way of learning this.
