There’s a new mega money-making opportunity in the social media space – Facebook reels. Facebook is pouring out $1 billion to encourage creators to create short-form videos on their platform. In this post, we will explore how to make money with Facebook reels. Facebook Reels are currently available in the US, India, Canada, and Mexico only. The company will expand access to other parts of the world in the future. And since this feature is in the infant stages, there is a fortune to be made. Let’s dive in.



What are Facebook Reels


Facebook Reels are short-form videos on Facebook just like short videos you watch on TikTok, YouTube shorts, Instagram reels, etc.

These are videos shot in vertical mode and under 30 seconds. Unlike TikTok (15 seconds to 3 minutes long videos), and Instagram (60 seconds long videos), Facebook has limited the reel videos to only 30 seconds.

They may add to the duration as the feature gets matured with content creators and the audience consuming the content.


How Facebook Reels work


You can create the reels inside the Facebook app and post them.

You can also repurpose the interesting videos you have already posted on TikTok, YouTube shorts, Instagram reels without the respective app watermark and upload them as Facebook reels.

You can post the reels on your creator or business page, and after that, you can share them on your personal profile or Instagram and get monetizable views as well.

Every view of your reel video inside all these places counts to the monetizable views. This is something really interesting and a big opportunity to make a ton of money.


You may ask your viewers to share the videos, which adds up to the number of views your reels will be getting.

That means a shareable reels video can blow up your potential earnings in no time.


Facebook Reels Monetization


This might pique your interest that Facebook has announced they will be investing a gigantic $1 billion dollars into creators in 2022 to create amazing and interesting short-form videos on their platform.

Yes! that’s billion with a “B”.

Well, you might be thinking, what the heck. $1 billion? Why?

Simple enough, everybody is shifting gears to leverage the exploding popularity of short videos, thanks to the disruptive phenomenon triggered by the musing (music plus dancing) app, TikTok.

Instagram (also owned by Facebook) followed the trend first with Instagram reels in August 2020, followed by YouTube with YouTube Shorts in March 2021.

And now yet another giant social platform joins in.

The next section shares more information about this program and how to equip yourself for the big win.


Facebook Reels Play bonus program


In addition to the $1 billion funds, new creators can also benefit from the Reels Play bonus program.

Inside this program, creators will be paid for views on their reels.

This actually is the real big opening for the newbies who don’t have a big following on Facebook. In our research, ordinary people are already making over 6 figures with Facebook reels.

You might receive a notification from Facebook saying “You are being invited to try out reels and make upto $35k per month …”.

This will be the official invite to you if you are already creating content. So, don’t miss it.

Please remember, that you should not expect to create a creator account, sit back and wait for the invite.

It’s never going to happen.

You need to start creating and posting interesting content about what you are interested in. Stay consistent and you will most probably get the invite.

Isn’t this time for you to buckle up and create some crazy amazing content?

But before you jump in and start pushing content to the platform, you need to understand what are the criteria to be eligible for Facebook reels monetization.


Monetization Requirements


Facebook has laid out the monetization requirements, community guidelines, and other pre-requisites for making money on the platform as “Partner Monetization Policies”.

You can access everything you need to know here.

First, you need to have Facebook Pages, Profiles in professional mode, Events, and Groups to be able to get paid for uploading reels on Facebook.

Personal profiles are not eligible for monetization.

So, before you start, check inside the settings about your profile status. If it is creator or business, you are good to go.

If not, you better create one at or

Also, you need to post authentic and original content. You can’t use the content that belongs to someone else and you didn’t ask for permission to use their content in advance.

There are certain categories and behaviors that are prohibited. Sexual behavior, bodily changes, explicit content, injuries, consuming drugs, and a lot more.

You can learn more about them here.


How much money can you make?


Facebook has announced they will put a cap on monthly earnings for reels creators.

Every creator can make up to $35k in a single month. Once you hit that number, you are done for the month.

You have to wait for the next month to start seeing dollars raining into your bank again.

$35k a month?

Not bad though for typing out your resignation. Right?

For every 1000 views up to 10,000 views, you can make $14 per 1000 views.

From 10,000 views and up, you can make $2 for every 1000 views.

So, pushing out some next-level amazing videos is really crucial to get your videos to go viral, get more views, and stack up more dollars.

In short, be creative, authentic, and original.


Facebook reels best practices


Here are some of the best practices to make the most out of the Facebook reels bonus program:

Post daily, once at least. If you want to post more in a day, then make sure to give a delay of 4 hours between two consecutive reels uploaded.

No watermarks inside the video. Facebook wants original and fresh content. You may use a free online app to download your TikTok videos without a watermark. This way you can use your TikTok videos as Facebook reels with no problem regarding monetization.

Be original and authentic. Don’t recreate the content of Sarah, who is a professional chef and she has been doing for so many years now. You should create videos around your expertise, interest, or personality. Originality always wins over copycat.

This is a marathon, not a sprint. Stay focused and consistent with your content publishing, and you will be rewarded.


Final Thoughts:


Now that you have realized how big is this opportunity, you have to start preparing yourself to take advantage of it right away.

Originality, consistency, and authenticity are the major ingredients to your success with not only this platform but any other online medium as well.

Let us know in the comments if $35k a month is worth your time and energy.
