Facebook is the social media platform that we all love but may even secretly hate it. From the constant flow of memes, news stories, and friend’s posts there is always something to read. You may even notice a sponsored post while scrolling through your feed. Did you know that you can create those sponsored posts for business? Businesses pay $1,000 monthly or more to have someone manage their Facebook advertisements. You can start your own Facebook side hustle to help your family pay down debt, build your emergency fund, or just capitalize on a platform you love to use.
You may be wondering how to get started with Facebook to earn an income. The simple answer is you can run Facebook advertisements for local businesses. Yes, businesses are willing to pay for this service.
I purchased the Facebook Side Hustle Course in January 2018 when it launched for the first time. I was scrolling through the Millennial Money Man Facebook Group when I saw talk of this new course getting ready to launch. Facebook advertising was new to me at the time so I was skeptical about signing up for the course.
Could I really earn $1,000 monthly from just one client? Do I have the knowledge to run marketing campaigns for a local business? The answer to these questions is a resounding yes! You can earn over $1,000 from just one client to run their marketing campaigns. This course is the foundation of creating a profitable, scalable side hustle or growing into a marketing agency.
The Facebook Side Hustle Course was created by Bobby Hoyt of Millennial Money Man and Mike Yanda. This dynamic duo teamed up and created the course while also building their joint business venture Laptop Empires.
You may be wondering what a personal finance blogger and some guy named Mike know about Facebook advertisement.
Bobby Hoyt quit his full-time brand director career to turn to full-time blogging. However, he was not creating an income and needed to do something quick. He turned to search engine optimization and marketing as a way to make ends meet. Bobby started running Facebook ads for local businesses to help support his family.
Mike Yanda was in law school side hustling with personal fitness. He later turned to Facebook marketing and quit his job as a lawyer to run a marketing agency. He now has a team that works under him to work with businesses all over the world managing their Facebook ad campaigns.
Both of these guys have been in the trenches of Facebook advertising for quite some time and are continually learning about the platform to stay on top of trends and market changes.
The Facebook Side Hustle course was created with the busy person in mind. It doesn’t matter if you are a stay at home mom with kids running around all day or the full-time employee with only a few hours of spare time per week. The Facebook Side Hustle course is meant to work for the individual who can work in the margins of life to create a side income for themselves.

The Facebook Side Hustle Course is broken down into nine modules. Each module is then broken down into bite-size pieces. The videos range in length from 2 minutes to 30 minutes. Most of the videos are in the 10-minute range with one outlier of over an hour. I really liked these bite-sized videos because I could really work on the course in the margins.
Module One: The Basics
This module will teach you the basics of Facebook advertising and why companies use this platform to advertise on.

You’ve never created an ad? I hadn’t either when I started this course. However, this module gave me the confidence I needed to create click-worthy advertisements for clients.

Have you ever visited a website and then logged in to Facebook? Did you see an advertisement in your newsfeed from that company soon after? If so, the company is using a Facebook asset.

Are you ready to earn an extra $1,000 per month?
If the answer is yes, then I highly recommend joining the Facebook Side Hustle course.
By utilizing the Facebook Support Community and the lessons in this course you will be set up for success. However, you may not land your first client in one month. But if you stick with client outreach and honing your craft you will be able to create a profitable Facebook side hustle.
If the answer is no, what is holding you back?
I am an introvert through and through. I would much rather be home than out talking to people. However, I pushed past my introvert tendencies and sent e-mails, made phone calls, and talked to dozens of people about Facebook advertising. This course will teach you everything you need to know to run a profitable Facebook Side Hustle. Mike and Bobby are two of the most genuine guys I have worked with in the online space and stand 100% behind their course. When you put in the work and the effort, they will help you as much as they can to ensure you are successful.
If you are serious about making some extra money this year, the Facebook Side Hustle is definitely the way to go. I hope you’ll consider this opportunity to create a scalable business from you and your family.
