    If you have a Instagram or Facebook page with a lot of followers/likes, you probably get a lot of private messages to your account. When I had a big Instagram account with 80k followers, I received so many private messages with the same questions.. most of the time: "can you promote my account?" or "can you follow me back?".

    Most account/page owners forget that's pretty easy to monetize these private messages. These guys took the time to send you a private message, so they are waiting for a reply. That's the reason why this is free traffic for your website or anything else.

    How I monetize them at the moment?

    Maybe you still don't believe that there is some free traffic. Facebook has a tool, where you can change the settings for auto-reply on private messages. I use that tool at the moment and it works great. I get free traffic and leads on autopilot. It isn't much yet, but it's better than nothing.

    This is my answer on all the messages. As you can see there is a link in the message. The link redirect people to a CPA offer (payout: €1,35). I tell them that they can win a prize, because they contacted us. But if you have a Instagram account and you get a lot of questions for a follow back or shoutout, you tell them to do the survey.

    This month so far:

    It isn't much yet, but I only get a few private messages a day. With Instagram accounts you get much more private messages. So you automatically get more traffic from it.

    Note: I know that you can use Massplanner for Instagram auto-reply. But I never used it before.

    Nice. I have some Facebook pages that receive decent amount of messages. However, I have no idea about CPA networks and so.
    My question is what will the users get when they click on the link? A survery ? My niche is related to technology.

    Thank you,

    It can be a survey, an email submit or any offer you choose from the network you're part of.

    OP's offer is a chance to win a ticket to a theme park, i think that's an email submit.

    Didn't know you could have these on autopilot, thanks for the tip! Normally I considered these a pain in the ass.

    Nice I didn't know FB had that built in.
    Can anyone recommend a similar tool to do this for Twitter?

    Here's another tip you can use to take advantage of pages.

    Do a little KW research and find some KWs that are easy to rank... build pages around them and set up your autoresponder as The Legend has shown in the OP. You can get most of those to show up early in FB when people are searching with likes and likes are easy to come by if you are posting that page in groups that are relevant.

    Don't worry about getting ranked in Google because you are targeting the FB crowd as once they are on FB they use the FB search bar.

    You can do a few different things to make it easy to rank as well. Likes is one thing as I mentioned and you can also make the pages relevant to a city/area.

    FB is big on connecting you with local groups and pages and if you build your page with the city/area in the name it will target locals for you.

    Banana deals in Milwaukee will target those in Milwaukee looking for banana deals better than just a plain page about banana deals.

    The nice thing about pages is that there is no hosting expense and very little maintenance so you can literally have an unlimited number of them for the cost of the set up.

    If you don't want to set it up yourself, outsource it.

    I had 50 pages made for me about a year and a half ago after doing some KW research and it cost me about 75.00 and the guy did very good work too.

    Of those 50 about 40 of them are performing very well and send me targeted leads. Some of the pages I monetize with CPA offers and others I drive them to lead generation sites. The 10 or so of that bunch are not doing much and a couple I get nothing from as I did not choose the region properly.

    I have in total about 85 of these kinds of pages in different niches and they are all on autopilot and largely ignored by me as they just make money for me in the background.

    I'm sure that if you do work the pages and add content on them on a regular basis that they would do even better and, if you are in the right niche, you can sell the pages to locals if you wanted to.

    I never tried lots of pages on same account, i thought that was an obvious no-no, red flag, spammy ban for granted thing. How stupid i am, im gonna kill myself right now. I think that 0 upkeep projects are such a wonderful thing. Thank you BTB, assuption is mother of all fuckups i guess. And now i remember a guy who said BHW is useless.

    I did nothing with social media until @Trepanated posted this useless thread that gave me an idea on how to generate revenue on FB and now I am sitting in tall cotton because of it.

    Dang useless posts and threads on BHW.
