    First of all, sorry for my bad english as I'm from Germany and usually only read, not write in english - I hope you will understand my "problems"^^

    Yesterday i was offered a Facebook Group with about 3000 members and I'm not really sure how i could monetize this opportunity.
    I know that 3000 member is not the most of what is possible but for me it would be my first group on facebook.

    A few points to what this group does/is
    • A trading Group (games)
    • you can ask for games and/or offer them to be bought.

    I would like to direkt this group to be more about: "Where to buy PC Games" and in the meantime use it to make money via the amazon affiliate programm.

    My question for you guys is, weather or not this is possible and how i should do this. - I'm no money making guru, i need you^^

    Thx for all replys!
    Even small tips and tricks are welcome!^^

    edit: fyi. it is a rather active group.

    How many likes per post ? Max like and max comment in one post from the lastest 7 days ?
    If the maximum number is more than 0.5% your members, means 15 it means your group is able to monetize
    <= hope you got what i mean and this is what they call " bad english", yours is still good :)

    Its hard to say how many ppl actually comment on a post as the most do this via a private chat to sell or buy games.
    But most post do get about 4 comments and here and there a like or two.

    But as i said, most interaction is private and not via comments.
    Still, its a rather active group if this is your underlining question.

    Go to Amazon and find newly released games, post it and pin it on your group. If there are games with release dates in the future, try to get pre orders using your group. I have had limited success with Facebook buy and sell groups using a similar method. Good luck!

    It depends on the user engagement of the member. Some groups with a few hundred member do better than those of 50k member groups.

    Actually, you can earn some money from your group. For example.: Make an cover with title Advertise your products here" and wait for the people who interested to advertise their products on your group cover place.
    Also, do not forget and "Pinned post" which always been on the top of the group. You can rent cover for 20euro/15days
    and "Pinned post". Open your imagine
