    Hey!

    I uploaded a cute video of my dog yesterday and it's getting a bit viral (52.000 views, 190.000 people reached, 1200 shares).
    It's my first time doing this and i don't really know how to monetize it.

    I used a free ebook with a link locker on adworkmedia, got 102 clicks and 2 leads. It's a bit ridiculous i think.

    Do you have good advices please? I need to get a bit of money to improve my FB page. Thanks!

    serisously ? a dog video leading to an ebook ?

    You have to think right when this hit. Best way would be to create a page for your dog and catch those people attention. And think it through later. If it's a youtube video, enable monetization.

    Yup, i don't have any experience with IM and i wasn't expecting that. The ebook is "dog training essentials", it's related at least.
    About the page, it's already done. Actually, i posted that video on my facebook page about my dog.

    But i want to earn a bit of money with that video and i'll use that money to promote my page later.
    The video is still shared a lot right now.

    I don't even know how to do this. As i said, i'm just a beginner here trying to find a nice way to earn some money.
    I know i'm missing an opportunity to make money with that video but well, i'm kinda lost right now.

    You have the Fanpage, the video went a bit viral and you have no clue how to monetize it.
    The best you can do is NOT to monetize it.

    Try to hook the people viewing your video to like your Fanpage (change description of the Video) call to action but don't try to push too much. Just "(y) @Fanpage" is usually enough already. What you need to do is to grow your audience for future videos now.
    Future Videos should always have a watermark of either your website or the fanpage (short version: fb.com/slug)
    Add a call to visit/like your website/fanpage at the end of the next videos.

    In the meantime think about a plan how to monetize - just don't try too hard right now.

    Yup that's what i did.
    I just wanted to earn a bit of money to invest in my facebook page later. But well, i'm not experienced enough for that i guess.
    It's still getting some decent shares and views btw. ~260.000 people reached and 67.000 views now.

    Thanks for the advices anyway. ;)

    easy way to make a few bucks:
    sign up for mylikes
    find a post about cute dogs or something like that
    link to it in the video

    you get paid for every click though they do shave a bit you will earn a few $

    I guess you wanted to say "Easy way to piss off your fans and loose them forever"?

    Well, i'm trying mylikes. It's just a short message at the end of the description. Nothing really annoying.
    I won't spam my page with mylikes posts.

    The thing is, my video is the kind of video people like to watch and share on facebook. It's just a very cute and short video of my dog.
    90.000 views right now and i'm sure i can get a lot more if i post it in some groups about dogs.
