Servando: Hey guys. This is a guest post by Ronald from Web SEO Marketers, who’s monetizing his Fan Pages with the Facebook Audience Network (similar to Adsense) and using Facebook Instant Articles (The articles that load super quick in your Facebook Newsfeed) to get great CPMs and massive engagement in his posts.
This is a very similar technique to what I explained about viral traffic in posts before, but instead of relying on Adsense or any other network (pop, native, interstitials, etc), Ronald is using Facebook’s network to monetize his fans.
Most people don’t even know Facebook has their own Adsense Alternative, and setting up a site for Facebook is more difficult than setting up an Adsense account. But don’t worry, Ronald went above and below to make sure you understand every step of the process with tons of images.

Yes, that’s not a lie! I am talking about making US$22,000 in just one month, with Facebook Instant Articles and Facebook Audience. And the best part of it is that you don’t need to worry about one single click, there is no need to worry about CPC or CTR%.
We’ve all been witnesses of how much growth Facebook has gotten since Mark Zuckerberg and his colleagues decided to launch a small project that they didn’t even think would become so successful. It all started as a website that was planned for the students of the University of Harvard to communicate easier among themselves and also share content.
For a few years, many publishers have used Facebook and other social networks in order to drive traffic to their blogs and website and monetize the traffic with platforms such as Adsense, CPA and CPM Networks.
Now Facebook expands the scope of Audience Network to display their own ads along with Facebook Instant Articles, which is a platform that allows publishers to optimize their articles in a way that they can be displayed immediately after you click on them. As we all know, no matter how well we optimize our blogs and websites, there’s always been a problem with the time it takes for the articles to load on mobile devices, so this comes into the action and solves that problem.
Now that we talked a little bit about how things have occurred, let’s talk about the reason that made you visit this post.
How to make money with Facebook Instant Articles
Facebook Audience Network pays its publishers an eCPM rate based on the countries and also the volume of traffic each publisher gets, but I can certainly tell you that it pays more than any other CPM network I’ve ever worked with. Here is a screen capture of my performance report so that you can know what I am talking about.
Average eCPM is $1.45 and most of the traffic I get on this site is traffic from Hispanic countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Argentina, etc. When I look at the performance report filtered by countries, I can see an eCPM as high as $4.58 for countries like the United States. Not bad at all! ?
The best part of all this is the fact that you don’t need to worry about ad placements, whether you need use text or image banners, no worries about clicks and no worries about CTR%.
I mean, I’ve been able to make a lot of money with Google Adsense, but this one makes it so simple that I’m making money without moving a tip of my fingers. Google Adsense it’s even one of my favorite Networks and the way I have my articles setup allows the visitors who are not coming from Facebook to also see my Adsense banners, which means that I am monetizing my traffic with both.
