Advertising that stays on 1000 impressions or per month is one way to make money. Another way is to get paid placements after the free placement days are over. Some of the placements site also collect the email and phone number of the people who make posts. This way the data collection from such sites is being sold to the marketing companies who need email or mobile for their own marketing purpose. It does not make much money but it is possible to make some money.
