How to make money posting ads – Step by Step Guide
Step One – Research
While the internet has thousands of opportunities that enable professionals to earn money, there are many platforms running scams. These platforms have one goal in mind – to steal your hard-earned money. Taking the time to research on the internet provides you with information pertaining to which platform is trustworthy and which is not.
Searching the internet using a keyword like “how to make money posting ads” will display millions of results. Problem is it’s quite difficult to tell apart between genuine platforms and scams. This is where reviews become beneficial.
Online users post reviews and comments pertaining to their experience with different platforms. You can find such reviews on blogs and forums. Taking your time to read through the available reviews will allow you to sort out genuine platforms from scams.
Step Two – Create your profile
I am sure by now you have gathered a lot of information. Not only have you sorted out the genuine platforms but you have stricken out the scams. If you have yet to find a suitable platform that will ensure you are able to earn a genuine income, be patient. All will be revealed in good time. According to my research, there are hundreds of websites that claim to pay freelancers when they post an ad. Problem is they request freelancers to pay a certain amount in order to begin using the platform.
If you find a publisher making the above request, stay away. You will end up being conned. One of the best platforms that will not only guarantee payment is credited to your account but will connect you to thousands of clients on a secure platform is Fiverr. Fiverr is a freelancing platform that enables freelancers to complete micro jobs in different fields.
It is a trusted platform that has been around for more than a decade so you are assured of genuine service.
Step Three – Select your payment processor
At the end of every job, you will be paid the agreed amount if the task is completed according to the client’s instructions. Fiverr supports different payment processors for example MasterCard, Visa, PayPal and Skrill among others. It is important to have one of the above payment systems. PayPal is the most popular and the easiest to use. Furthermore, PayPal has implemented the best security protocols that prevent unauthorized access to your account.
This does not mean that MasterCard and Visa are not good. The reason you need to be careful with these payment systems is that they are directly connected to your bank account as opposed to PayPal which is a third party provider. Furthermore, PayPal allows you to shop for goods from supported suppliers.
Step Four – Search for micro jobs
Today, companies are willing to pay influencers in order to promote their products and services on social media. As an upcoming influencer, you can get in the game and earn a genuine income. First and foremost, create your profile on Fiverr. The next step is to search for micro jobs related to posting ads.
One thing you need to know is that clients will request you to post ads on renowned platforms like Craigslist, OLX, and eBay among others. An influencer may also request you to post an ad on popular social media networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter among others.
Working on Fiverr is great. You can select your own working hours which mean you will have time to complete other tasks around your home. Furthermore, you can spend some time with your children. You can do so by taking your child to the movies, to the beach or even plan a vacation to your favorite destination. Becoming a freelancer will ensure that you get to enjoy life. Furthermore, the income earned from Fiverr will be used to settle debts, pay bills and even invest in available financial instruments like real estate.
Step Five – Complete the job and get paid
Every single project you apply to will contain instructions. They can be divided into general and specific. Once you apply for a task, take your time to read the instructions. Doing so will ensure that you are able to understand what is required. Failure to do so will result in poor work. This is not what you want. Why? It will impact your reputation and as a result, you will end up missing out on new micro jobs. If you are unsure about the instructions, it’s wise to consult the client.
When it comes to creating the ad, you will be required to create a headline, the ad text, and URL. The ad text contains the promotional message. For example “Up to 30% off Rose Gold Luxury Watches. Shop Today and Save.” What the promotional message above is conveying is that Rose Gold Luxury Watches are being sold by XYZ Company at 30% off the retail price. Shoppers who buy the watch will get to save.
The client may also require you to post classified ads. This type of ad can be posted on renowned platforms like Craigslist. If a micro job is completed successfully, payment will be credited to your account.
