This post reveals everything you need to know about How To Start Video Content On Facebook And Get Paid In Nigeria [100% Solution]

Content Creation has become one of the best paying business model for social media users in the 21st century.

Amongst Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, Facebook happens to be the most used tool that pays on each video content that you create.

In this article, I am writing out a complete guide on how to start video content on facebook and get paid in Nigeria. So read in lines.

Let’s start by defining content creation for Facebook and it’s real meaning.


This involves the process of planning, acting, recording, editing, merging and posting videos on Facebook for followers or viewers interest.

It could be any kind of video but as a starter who wants to make money on Facebook you must choose a particular style or concept of videos you will be doing and that term is known as Niche.


There are over 20 Facebook Video Niches but in order to become a successful content creator you need just one niche to focus on.


  • Okay, let’s say you’re someone who often likes gisting on celebrity affairs or gossiping in real life, the first niche you should consider is “Entertainment“. An extrovert, probably someone who likes going out to party, hangout, events can run this n!che successfully.
  • As someone who loves talking about football, this should tell you that your best niche is “Sport“.
  • If you’re good at advising people about relationships, knowing the in and out of dating, flirt or giving tips on marriage, this means that you’ll choose “Relationship” as your niche.
  • As a nursing mother, nanny or house wife with kids looking for ways to make money online from home with Facebook, I will suggest “Children Video” is what actually suit you.
  • Food-niche” is the best for someone with passion for cooking.
  • Comedy” which appears as most-viewed-niche on Facebook is for anybody who can make jokes, pranks and any kind of fun stuffs that triggers audience to laugh.

However, with all the mentioned niches above, I’m sure that you have a choice or let’s say a category your ideal content falls under, so what’s stopping you from earning from Facebook video you post?.

While the vast majority of Nigerians turned their attentions to content creation and making money with Facebook pages through videos they publish, there’s this ideology that the video creators with 99% clarity, great sound production and meaningful scripts tends to get the larger numbers of views on the platform which are also the highest paying Facebook videos. So where I am heading to is this; before embarking on video creation business, think of acquiring tools, materials or equipment to use in order for you to obtain quality videos and pictures.


  1. iPhone or Video Cam
  2. Ring Light
  3. Laptop or Smartphone
  4. Wireless Mic
  5. Tripod Stand
  6. Generator
  7. Sound Effects (optional).

Wait, Let me explain why these tools are necessary and how much you can afford them.

Iphones for creation

IPHONE OR VIDEO CAMERA: will help you achieve high definition video and pictures when filming or taking shots. Any of these equipment could sell for N80K, N170K to 800K naira.

Ring light

RING LIGHT: is an important tool in aspect of Facebook content creation because it will brighten the environment where you’re producing the video content (incase it’s a dark room or where sunlight is not presence). Your budget for this device is between N15k to N45K.

Laptop for creation

LAPTOP OR SMARTPHONE: Computer system would not only aid easy editing of your video, another reason content creators opt for it is because the device can process a lengthy video editing without dragging, merge easily and export faster than phone. Also, PC has a larger memory space (expandable disk drive) to store files, edited videos or drafts without having to worry about storage. In other hand, Smartphone (Android or iOS) with great Random Access Memory like 4GB RAM can do the work. Personal computers are available for N65k, N85k, N120k and above.


WIRELESS MIC: This particular video making kit (microphone without wire) is used for sound accuracy of the video you’re recording during content making. Creators connect it with video recording devices for their voice to be loud, clear and heard by audience. Budget atleast N15k to acquire this gadget.

Tripod stand

TRIPOD STAND: helps in holding up your phone or the camera you’ll be using for recording videos during content creation for Facebook. The cost of getting tripods ranges from N3k, N8k to N20k.


GENERATOR: Very crucial, because Nigeria NEPA could be disappointing anytime, so do not rely on them. You need a genérator as a Facebook video creator or stay in an area where there is constant power supply or at least 18 hours light to stay updated with latest in your industry, keep your content creation business fresh and running. You can buy generator at the cost of N70k, N160k, N200k, depending on the size.

Comedy sounds effects

SOUNDS & EFFECTS: Especially comedians or skit makers need it the most to inject into their videos to make it sound more funny and entertaining. (You can download free audio sound effects on Google), However, they’re also premium sounds in online market places just incase you don’t fancy free things.
