Blogging Tips – How To Increase Traffic To Your Blog
For my blog, Facebook groups have been an incredible marketing tool.
Not only are they a great way to share your latest posts but also meet and connect with like minded people.
The life of a blogger can get lonely at times, you are on your own tapping away at your key board creating content for hours and hours (Or is this just me?)
Being in a facebook group with other bloggers and entrepreneur’s is incredible because they GET and understand what you’re doing and everyone supports each other and gives encouragement.
In these groups, you get everyone from the beginner to the professionals, all asking and answering questions, sharing tips to increase your followers and so much more.
I have joined quite a lot of different groups over the last 3 months but the ones I am going to share with you in this post are by far the best in my opinion.
Before we jump right into this awesome list let me share with you 3 top tips for being in Facebook groups.
How To Increase Traffic To Your Blog – Top Tips For Groups.
1 – Read the rules
These are normally included in the description for the group, please don’t join a group and start sharing your latest blog post as you will be kicked out.
2 – Introduce yourself
Every group I get accepted into I always introduce myself and say thank you for accepting me to the group. This starts up conversations with people in the group and is also a great way to start networking.
3 – Be Active
Don’t be someone who just drops their latest blog post and runs, answer some questions if you can or ask some yourself.
Take part in sharing other peoples content, comments or likes. Be involved and active in your groups.
This is the best group around and will help you get millions and millions of views on your blog!
You should join this right now 🙂
