Facebook is a great way to get FREE traffic if you know how.
A lot of internet marketers use paid Facebook advertising, most find that they either lose their shirt or have to work their socks off to make a small miniscule profit or break even.
If you are thinking on using paid ads, make sure that you know exactly how you are going to make these ads pay.
The best way to start with Facebook is to capitalise on all of the free options that I have listed below;
1. Build Your Friends List
The first thing that you must do is to concentrate on building your friends list. My advice is to find the, ‘Big Names’ in your chosen niche and join their groups. Make sure that you are active in these groups Posting great content and also helping to answer peoples questions. Become a ‘Go To Person’ and start adding the active people to your friends list. If you do not do this nothing will work. So make sure that the people in your Friends list are highly interested in your niche.
2. Posting content to your Facebook timeline
It is important that you realise that Facebook does not like you posting links to sites that take people away from Facebook and penalise you. If you want to test this out, simply create two similar posts adding a link in one of them. The result will be that the reach will be far greater with the Post without the link.
The way around this is to mention in your post that people should comment on your post if they want to know more.
So make sure that your posts make people really want to know more about your posts and will want to take action on them. Images are a great way to capture peoples attention and make them curious enough to read your post.
Your posts should be crafted so as to get them to interact with your posts, liking, sharing and commenting on them.
3. Create a Facebook Fanpage
Setting up a fanpage and creating high quality fresh content will help you to build a massive following but, you have to realise that this is a massive undertaking and you should make sure that you know as much as possible about running your very own fanpage.
4. Make your content easy to share
It is so easy to place share buttons on your blog posts using a plugin. These plugins make it so easy to share your content through social networks. Make sure that you ask people to share your content. The more content that is shared, the more ‘Eyes’ will see it!
