Paid Online Events

Let's talk about paid online events. You may have already been and participated in one or two. They are usually around $50-$100 and offer some type of specialized training.

BUT with the pandemic, lots and lots of people are using Facebook paid online events or unpaid events.

Facebook Paid Online Events

You can use several methods for an online paid course, but the simplest is usually Facebook paid online events. You can go live right in your event/group for the paid event. People interact through comments and reactions. This is really the ONLY method if you have a large audience, in my opinion.

Facebook even has an app called "Live Producer" you can use to set it up, similar to setting up a live event.

In this way, you set the price, you do the training, Facebook collects the money and deposits it into your account.

It seems things are changing on Facebook Business to try and compete with other streaming options. 

What that means is that if you were to do a Facebook Webinar, and asked customers to pay, Facebook waives any fees! That could save you some money! 💸💸

You could use this for a simple paid event, like a simple class on something for $15 even. Short, sweet, get money.

Maybe you have an opt-in that you want to a simple class, charge $10 or $15 for the live video and get the opt-in free!

What is a paid online event for Facebook?

According to Facebook, by combining marketing, payment, and live video, paid online events meet the end-to-end needs of businesses. Pages and Groups can host events using Live Producer on Facebook Live to reach broad audiences, and paid events for more personal and interactive gatherings
