Facebook is the biggest social network around with billions of users, and people in the United States spend a combined total of 114 billion minutes every month on Facebook. Despite the size and popularity of this social network, many people do not know how to promote their blogs on Facebook. Promoting your blog on Facebook will allow you to get more traffic and stronger connections. Promoting your blog on Facebook is important, and these are three ways that you can get started.
- Share it on your personal account’s newsfeed. The easiest way to get more traffic on Facebook is telling your friends about your blog. Implementing this strategy generally results in a steady flow of traffic that increases over time as more search engines pay attention.
- Create a Facebook Page. Creating a Facebook Page and building a presence for that page will take longer than your personal account. However, you will be able to build more connections and get more visitors with a successful Facebook Page than you would be able to get with a personal account. It’s always good to have both.
- Post at the right time. As you get more people to visit your Facebook Page, you will get access to better analytics. Facebook provides all of its analytics for free, but when your page has over 100 likes, then it is easier to see when a majority of your fans are on Facebook. Post your content when most people are going to see it.
By getting more people to see your content on Facebook, you will be able to build a strong presence on a social network that grabs people’s attention throughout the day and has a format that encourages people to overshare content.
