Tired of slaving over your Facebook posts only to see that 10 people viewed them. What’s the point of posting if nobody ever sees your hard work. This week’s paid solo biz hack is an audio class with 21 ideas for getting more traction on Facebook. You can grab it here.
Here are 5 ways to get more traffic for your post:
Use a hashtag. Yes, I know hashtags used to be used for Twitter. But, using hashtags can get you traffic on Facebook too. In the class, we talk about exactly where to go to find out which tags are most effective.
Follow the crowd Posting about popular topics can get you more views. It can also make it harder for your voice to rise above the din. It is all a matter of making your posts relevant to your audience.
Verify your account If your business has a phone number, go to settings and verify with Facebook. Your reward – slightly better traffic AND access to Facebook Live and the ability to stream videos live.
Don’t post things you wouldn’t want to see While you don’t have to be super positive ALL the time, don’t post nasty pictures, profanities, super political posts, etc. Facebook pays attention when people hide you from your feed.
Don’t waste a good post It takes 11-15 impressions for a message to “stick” in your prospect’s mind. Use your post on other social media, post them on your blog, e-mail them to your list. Don’t let your hard work go to waste.
