Fanbox.com is hands down the best social networking website out there on the web today. It has the look and feel of Facebook in many ways, but the big difference between Facebook and Fanbox is that Fanbox allows its members to earn money for simply using and spending time on the website. Depending on the amount of time and energy you want to put into Fanbox, you can make anywhere from a few bucks a day for extra spending cash, to thousands of dollars a month as a full or part time living.
The different ways to earn income through Fanbox.com can be split into 5 categories: Categorizing and Rating posts, Producing posts and Promoting them to others, purchasing and earning from advertising, selling products and services, and teaching others.
1) Categorizing and Rating Posts
There are millions of articles that have been written by Fanbox users that are on the site. At the bottom of each post, there is a section that shows the keywords that the author has associated with that particular post. Based on what you read in the post, you can agree or disagree whether each of those keywords are relevant to the post(or even add your own keywords if you feel they are more relevant) and then give each a rating from 0-10 on how you feel the quality of the post was for that keyword.
This is a very simple activity. Most people read blogs all the time, so all that you have to do in addition to that is rate the blogs you read on Fanbox and get paid for it.
2) Producing and Promoting Posts
Fanbox is all about spreading information to others. Because of this, a large portion of the site is dedicated to blog writing and sharing. Everyone has the ability to write blogs and posts about almost anything they want, and can even simply share other peopleâ€™s articles, videos, etc. that you find interesting. Every time someone views your posts, you will earn income based on the amount of time they spend visiting each post. You can earn even more income by linking to other memberâ€™s posts(sort of like re-tweeting on twitter) from your own post and you will earn a â€śreferral incomeâ€ť based on the amount of time someone spends on that post as well.
In addition to this, every time you create a post, you will also create an advertisement to promote that post(just like Google Adwords) that yourself and even others can fund and you will earn additional income every time someone clicks on your ad and earn from the time they spend reading your post.
3) Purchasing Advertisements
Here is where Fanbox really starts to get profitable! As discussed in the previous section, every person that writes a post also makes an advertisement for that post. There are literally thousands if not millions of posts on Fanbox and not everyone that writes a post has the money to properly fund the advertisements for their posts. To solve this problem, Fanbox has a function called â€śBoosting.â€ť
Boosting is essentially you purchasing the advertisements that are not currently funded on Fanbox. The way you earn money is that you earn everytime someone clicks on the ads that you fund through boosting. The best part about this is that there is absolutely no way that you will lose money when you boost. The worst case scenario on a given day that you boost, is that your funds may go un-utilized and you will just have your money returned to you.
4) Selling Products and Services
Fanbox allows you to sell any product or service that you can imagine on the site and donâ€™t have to pay any fee whatsoever to do so. You could sell subscriptions to a premium blog or video channel that you create or you could sell t-shirts, etc. The opportunities are endless.
5) Teaching Others
There are 2 categories that Fanbox has within the teaching realm in terms of how you can earn income.
The first is simply that every person that signs up under you as their Teacher within the first 2 weeks of their joining Fanbox, you will earn between 5-10% of all earnings that person makes for the lifetime that they are on Fanbox.
The second category is that you can earn the title of â€śSuccess Coach.â€ť Success Coaches are basically the leaders of Fanbox as they have accomplished and passed a series of tests setup to make sure they know the ins and outs of Fanbox to help others accomplish the same goals that they have. As a Success Coach, you will be assigned students by Fanbox to help teach them how to earn and use the site as efficiently as possible. In return for this, you will have all earnings from all of your activities on Fanbox doubled! The great part about this is that Fanbox has laid out exactly what each member needs to accomplish in order to become a success coach, so with a little determination, anyone can achieve this goal.
As you can see, there are numerous possibilities for making money at Fanbox. It is free to join, so why not give it a shot today?!
