If you just started your new blog, congratulations on getting into the blogosphere! Starting and posting in a blog is a lot of fun, especially once you start getting a lot of traffic to your blog and start making money with it. That is when the real fun begins. There are a lot of ways to promote a blog and using Facebook groups is one of them. Here is how you can get the most out of using Facebook groups to promote your new blog.
Join Groups with a lot of members that are in your Niche
Facebook can be a lot of fun as it is and now you can use it to promote your blog and bring in some traffic. The main thing you need to do is choose groups that share the niche of your blog. Also, you want to make sure the groups have a lot of members so you have a good chance of getting some decent traffic to your blog. Your goal is to get someone to click on your blog link and read what you posted in your blog. Your goal with using Facebook groups is to get as much traffic as you can from the groups you choose to join.
Sharing your Blog
Once you have joined the Facebook groups, you want to start sharing your blog in these groups. Be careful not to overshare, or may risk spamming the group. The best practice is to share a couple of times per day and you will be fine. You also want to use a nice description when posting to these groups. This description should be at least three sentences long and describe what you are posting about with a link back to your blog. Doing this the right way is what will bring in the traffic.
#Hastags aren’t just for Twitter anymore. They can also be used on Facebook, Google +, and Twitter, of course. However, when using #hashtags, you want to make sure you use tags that people will use to search for the topic of your blog post. For example, if you have a topic on Internet Marketing, you would use #Internetmarketing, #marketing, #Internet, #makingmoneyonline, and so on. You get the idea. Hashtags are just like keywords you use on Google to search for something so keep this in mind when using them when posting in the Facebook groups.
Once your new blog goes live, you want to promote it as much as you can, and a great place to do that is on Facebook. Using the tips above will help you start getting the traffic you want from posting in and using Facebook groups.
