    I'm going to try to be as detailed as I can because I really need to get this sorted out. Here I go.
    At this moment I'm an editor on 8 NBA FB pages, those pages have a combined total of 750k likes.

    What I have learned

    The reach on the FB pages sucks. This change happened about a year ago and now you can say that around 5% of fans are going to see your latest post on the page (sometimes this can be less). The leads you are going to create from these pages are not that good, they are just there to see whats new in the NBA world, rarely will they buy anything.

    What I have tried

    I have tried sending affiliate offers directly to the pages but its really risky and not worth it. (The admins will not like it, and it does not really work). I have been sending the people to a website I have made that had been connected with adsense. I was not happy with the results. I figured that there are bigger chance of somebody wanting to watch a video on youtube so I made a channel and started uploading there. The content that I upload is downloaded off of facebook (FB videos, Vines) so that youtube does not ban me quickly. I have had 40,000 views but only made $3. Right now I'm applying for partnership networks but I want to try something more. I have also added affiliate links on the videos.

    If anyone has any ideas what to do with the 750k fans, please feel free to message me.

    Can you elaborate why you were not happy with the results?
    What kind of content did you post to the website? NBA related?

    Yes, it was all NBA related. I'm guessing the cost per click was pretty low. Didn't even get to $0.5 in 10 days. I was having just over 150 visits per day and it was increasing.

    If i were you. With a page that big not getting reach there are a few things you can do. For starters. You should see about merging that page into a brand new page. Now the thing is, you will lose likes. Those likes lost will be inactive or dead accounts on the page. Remember that each time you post on a page, your posts only go out to a certain % of the people that liked the page. So you want to eliminate those fake likes. Also try posting a video every day and pinning it along with about 12 scheduled content and just monitor your reach from there.

    The problem is that I'm not the admin on those pages. Trying to do something like that will only get me in trouble. It's not just one page, there are 8 of them. Biggest one having 250k likes and a nice reach, and the smallest having around 7k likes.

    Im gonna be honest and say its even lower. I'm going to say its at 1%. But 1% out of 750,000 is still a lot.

    I'm an editor on those pages, not the admin. I don't own them, i just control what can be posted on them.

    Oh man I would love to own an NBA related page as I am a huge basketball nut. I have a facebook page with 600k fans and HUGE engagement/reach. I've been making some decent money with it but lately it's been a hassle to manage because I don't have the time. It's a pretty general page (no specific niche) and demographic is 80% female so it's potentially a goldmine if you knew what to do with it. I know it's not what you're looking for but I would definitely trade if you were interested.

    edit: i guess i got too excited and didn't read everything. if you're not the admin then this probably wouldn't work out.

    I would again talk to the admins about what I suggested in the thread. Those are the best ways to have nice reach. Facebook is something i'm really good at in terms of getting high reach without paying for ads. I just don't know how to monetize, that's where I'm weak at. This page here had a jump start to about 6k likes then has grown itself to 38k over the months. All of it is organic reach. It just takes a lot of effort to do that. People ask me the secret to reach. The secret is to put 150% effort into your pages, not just run them like a money machine and spam links. Here are the insights of the page I was talking about. It's still rising today.

    You sound like you have engagement on internal facebook things.. like photos, raw video etc.. by nature any content that originates from facebook will have good reach.. why? because you are promoting things that remain on the site and facebook wants that.. the key is knowing how to apply that reach to external posts.. things that leave facebook.. and i read where you said "Yes, it was all NBA related. I'm guessing the cost per click was pretty low. Didn't even get to $0.5 in 10 days. I was having just over 150 visits per day and it was increasing."

    Bro 150 visits a day is NO TRAFFIC AT ALL.. You think you know how to use it.. i can make $300-600$ a month from a page with 15k fans.. so everytime i come on one of these threads and i see people saying the reach is this and that.. i cringe because when people fail at something or don't have the knowledge, they blame the system and discourage other people from getting into this.. do you not think people are making huge bank from organic posts? With a 750k fans you should be making close to 10k a month.. if not more.. The biggest misconception people don't get about facebook is the amount of fans really doesnt matter.. it does but this is what i mean.. if you have a page with 15k for example if its a good post the maority of the fans will see it.. as the page gets bigger less and less people see the posts in comparison to the total.. ive seen pages with 25k make just as much as a page with 150k.. and the posts are similar..

    "I just don't know how to monetize, that's where I'm weak at."

    You are stuck in FACEBOOK, you want always MORE FANS ! WHY ? YOU THINK IT WILL BE BETTER, you work quite for NOTHING. That's what Facebook want. PEOPLE spend money, and never receive it ! Facebook are the best for that !

    In my opinion your niche is not good (easy to grow up, but difficult to monetize)
