I used to have mixed feelings about using Facebook for my blog, but over the past month or so, I’ve seen some results from it and decided that I’d stick with it. Facebook is consistently changed but I’ve found that if you focus on just a few things you can use Facebook to help grow your blog.
- Join a blogger support group on Facebook. There are a number of these groups and you probably know someone in one. I’m in a couple related to different ambassadorships and a couple have that sprung up from those ambassador programs. These groups are great because I participate when I have the time (usually how it works is if you post a link, you commit to sharing other links in that thread). It’s help me to grown my reach and my blog.
- Connect your Instagram to your blog’s Facebook page. I did this awhile back and it’s really upped my Facebook engagement. I’m posting on Instagram typically once a day (sometimes more) and so sending those posts to Facebook is a great way to share more of my life with my Facebook folks! The great thing is you choose to send the post to Facebook so you don’t have to send every post.
- Try different forms of posting and work with what gets you the most engagement. I find that I get a lot of engagement posting a picture and captioning it. You should play around with what works best for you – I like to look at the insights section of my Facebook blog page and see what posts are performing the best.
