One of the most common questions our Success Coaches get asked, is to help members (clients) understand their income here. So here is my overview, which should give you a clearer understanding.
A typical question may be like this -
"How can I understand my 'earnings' on FanBox - are they like a salary?" The following is intended to cover that fully - but if you have further questions, please ask your SC or leave me a query in the comments section below.
"I will happily clarify that for you - may I start by ensuring you are clear on the basic differences between employment and using a web site to generate some income. This will take a few minutes to read, but should ensure you have a solid understanding of the various potential incomes you can earn here, their costs and their various short and longer term benefits.
We should not view the earnings here as 'salary' as that is correctly used only when people are employed to undertake a job, though used carefully this site can certainly give you a great extra source of income.
Here on FanBox we are all trying to earn a little extra income by blogging, uploading our original photos, sharing video links from You Tube & Vimeo, trading in our market place and investing - we are in effect all making our own small business.
Blogs are the easiest to understand in some ways, as there is no cost to write and publish a blog, but there can be costs to promote it with ads - even though we make a small margin of profit on ads. What we earn from blogging is pure profit, so even $6.00 would be actual profit to keep.
Uploading your own original photos is now another way to earn. You can upload from your computer or send pictures to your fanbox account from an App on your iPhone or froman Android smartphone. As there are no costs associated with uploading photos, simply adding them will generate earnings based upon the number of views they get from other members.
Click on 'Add Photos/Video' text and the options box opens - select upload photos.
The window below opens
Follow the on screen instructions and add photos that you select to the list , then click on upload.
Soon you will have a photo album window open and can add the name for the album, the location if you wish to add it and a description. Save those and the album will then display all the photos you added.
Your profile page will also show a summary of the pictures you added and members who are your fans and friends can see that too.
The most recent addition to earning options has been the faciity to add videos on your profile page - you will not earn if you post to other people's walls. When someone clicks on those they earn for you! Source videos can be from You Tube and from Vimeo - you simply add the URL for the video and the details show as below:-
Click on Add a Video to open this window and paste in the URL from Vimeo or from You Tube. Click on Post to confirm your choice.
When someone clicks to play the video, the window enlarges as below.
That's all that you need to do - when a member clicks on the play button you start to earn, even if they don't watch it to the end...
If we use the trading facilities, we usually have costs - the wholesale price of goods, or the cost to make them, etc, - and the cost of ads again.
