There are innumerable ways to make money in this world but internet serves as the platform that provides with some of the easiest ways of doing that. Social networking websites have become the most lucrative places on internet in the past few years. People only thought of using social networking websites to talk to each other, interact and know each other's sharing but the idea was modified soon. Today, social media is being used for making money by individuals and some of the largest enterprises in the world. They use different methods to make money from different social networking websites.

Individuals would often think of taking their talent to talent hunting agencies and try to get approved and get a chance to be on media. Models prepare their albums whereas singers record their sample songs so they can impress the right people to get a chance to be in front of the worldwide audience. However, social media kills the need of doing any of those things. As a person with some talent you can market and advertise yourself on social networking websites. You can become a star either on social media or use social media as your means to becoming a star on TV.

Instead of making your videos and recording songs and then taking them to the record label companies you can have them uploaded to your social networking profiles. Let the people who are in your friends’ lists comment on your uploads and give you feedback. If your song or video is liked by the people and it becomes viral on the internet, you have set your first foot on the stage of success. Similarly, talent hunt programs now accept people from social networking websites based on the ratings they receive from their fans, friends and other online users.

Your popular videos can be a great way of earning money from social networking websites. For instance, on Empowr, you can earn just by sharing images and videos. Also, as you might know, websites like YouTube now pay you for your videos. However, there are certain requirements that you and your videos must meet before they can be paid for. You can have other forms of talents showcased on social networking websites too. For example, you can make a video showing your skills of making handmade greeting cards and ask the people to come to your website to order them. You can make money on social networking websites by investing time instead of money.

You can make money from social media by becoming a marketer too. Most of the companies that offer some kind of product or service are now offering affiliate programs. Through these programs they are giving an opportunity to individuals sitting at home to make money. These individuals after knowing the terms and conditions of marketing the product of a particular company can use social networking websites to spread the word. Some people can get paid for every click on the link they provide through their social networking profiles whereas others get paid some part of the commission if a person buys the product with their reference.
