Facebook wants to help small businesses and announced a new product to monetize classes and online events called, “paid online events.”
Paid online events is currently a free product that enables “businesses, creators, educators and media publishers” to set up paid events or classes online and keep 100% the revenue themselves.
Businesses, publishers, creators and educators can determine whether they’re eligible here.
Marketers create the event, promote it to their organic followers or through Facebook ads and collect payment through Facebook.
One additional benefit of using the product, marketers will be able to create custom audiences from event or class attendees.
