Let others know your website or blog through Facebook? One of the tactics of bloggers these days is to get traffics from social networking sites especially Facebook. Without a question, Facebook rises as the most visited social website in the world. Millions of Facebook addicts are potential audience for your created blog.
In promoting your blog or website through Facebook, a blueprint must be in place. Some blogs have the maximum approach in marketing their blog through FB. However, many failed to deliver the necessary tactics that they are like in the wilderness wandering. Here are the steps in promoting your blog through Facebook.
1. Create a Page
Create a Facebook Page
Select what type of page :
Local Business or Place
Company, Organization or Institution
Brand or Product
Artist, Band or Public Figure
Cause or Community
Make the page attractive by adding a profile and cover pictures. Make sure that you add the url of your blog in the cover picture. This is one of the most important pieces of the page.
2. Invite your friends to like your page
In my experience, by inviting them through the auto invite doesn’t instigate your friends to like your page. Probably only 10 % of your friends will respond. The next thing you do is to ask them to like your page through private message. You got to PM them individually. They will act quickly once they read the message.
3. Published the link of your post in Facebook
Don’t just let the link to show. Facebook users want it with an image to grab their attention. Make your image attractive.
4. With the link and image, Tag some of your friends in the image
If you tag 50 of your friends, your link will be shown to their timelines, thus, exposing it to all their friends. If each of your friends have 500 friends, then many people will see your post.
5. Ask your friends to Share your post
You got to exert effort in promoting your blog. Message some of your friends to share your post and not only like it. This will reach more audience to see your blog.
6. Promote through sponsored post
You can promote your blog by paying to Facebook. However, I advise you to try only $5 for a trial. It”s worth trying this avenue of promoting your blog through Facebook.
Note: Luring your friends to read your article by going to your blog takes an effort. By taking these steps, you open your blog to your Facebook friends.
