Facebook Ads Can Give Your Blog Traffic a Boost – How to Use Facebook to Increase Blog Traffic (Part 3)

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

http://www.facebook.com

You can increase your blog traffic and grow your number of Facebook Fans by buying Facebook Ads.  You specify: 

  • How much you want to spend each day.
  • Whether you want to pay for impressions (number of ads displayed) or Clicks (people clicking on your ads).  I prefer “Clicks” and have found that for myself, I get around a 20% signup to click rate.
  • You can specify a date range for the ad to run (I recommend doing this).
  • Once they join as a fan, promoting your blog to them is easy. 

Therefore, if you can afford it and want to increase your blog traffic then running Facebook Ads can increase your blog traffic.

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Creating a Facebook Fan Page is a great way to drive traffic to you blog. 

1)    When someone joins your page, “Likes Your Page” a broadcast goes out to all of their friends about them joining your page.  Interested friends also then join your page, growing your list of prospects. This can have a multiplying effect.   

2)    Anytime you post anything to that page it shows up on their home page also allowing others to see it and join. 

3)    You can grow your prospect list even faster by having your friends “Share” the Page with their friends.  This specially invites their friends to join your “Fan Page”.  The right person with a large list of friends can give your list a big boost. You can then use your Fan Page to drive traffic to your blog.
