Memes culture has grown rapidly over the internet. The latest and the easiest way to get a laugh on the internet is scrolling through a couple of memes.
While traditional memes are simply an image with text either on the image itself or on top of the image, there are other forms of memes as well including gifs & video memes. It was only a matter of time before meme-making became more than just a hobby. With their widespread popularity & ability to go viral, memes are now a huge moneymaker for many people.
Build Social Media audience
People gain many followers on social media by just posting a couple of humorous memes. If you find any viral meme, try to trace it to its creator or source. You will find that the creator of the meme is making a lot of money.
If you want to earn money through memes the fastest way is through Social Media. You are viewing memes through your social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and many others. This is why social media accounts must be the primary focus if you are trying to make money with memes.
Once you have built a large social media following, you must be able to monetize that following. The two main ways people are generating money online from these accounts is through selling items & advertising for others.
You can charge anywhere from a couple of hundred bucks to the thousands for one share or shout out. The amount will, of course, depend upon how many followers you have. If you have over 100,000 legitimate followers who engage with your content, you can easily charge a good amount per post.
However, your audience is not dumb. They know when a site is spamming their newsfeed/timeline with ads and will quickly tire of that technique. Ultimately, they will quit following your page. So make sure that your content is high quality and that your advertising does not turn spammy.
