Posting Your Blog Content on Facebook

Having a business blog is an important digital marketing strategy. It helps with SEO, gives your customers and clients important information, helps educate new customers and clients, and is a great platform to talk about what you do and how you do it.

Undoubtedly you spend a fair amount of time curating the content for your blog. You come up with ideas, write the content, optimize it for your website, and more. After it’s written, you want to make sure that people actually read it.

blog content

One of the best ways to get your blog content out there is to post it on your social media channels. Facebook is an especially powerful tool for posting your blog content and having people read and share it. Want to learn more about how to make it work for you, check out my done-for-you system.

There are a few tactics that you can use to your advantage when you post your blog content on Facebook. Here are the ones that work the best:

Share your blog on Facebook

First thing is first, you should share your blog on your business Facebook account fairly soon after publishing it on your website. This ensures that the content is timely and lets people know that you published a new blog.

As an added bonus, sharing your blog on Facebook is totally free and it has the potential to spread far and wide. Encourage people to share it. Share it with your friends and business associates. The more eyes that see your blog post on Facebook, the better.

Boost the blog post on Facebook

 Using Facebook’s boosting options is a great way to get your blog content to the right people. When you boost a post, you choose who it goes to and can see how many people it can reach with a certain budget.

You can choose to pay per click, per 1000 impressions, or per engagement. This allows you to customize your boosted blog post to garner the action you want from your readers. Boosted posts can not only help ensure that your current customers and clients see your new blog content, they can also help new people see your blog and learn about what you do.

Use great headlines

 When you post a blog on Facebook, the headline is one of the first things people see. In fact, almost 80% of people never even make it past the headline. Because of this, you want a powerful headline that encourages people to click into and read the whole blog post.

Keep the headlines short and to the point. Tell readers exactly what they should expect to get out of the blog. If there are any important or eye-catching numbers or facts, those can be great to incorporate into the headline.

Imaging matters

 When you publish a blog post on Facebook, it is important to add an eye-catching image to make the link stand out in the newsfeed. Stock images are okay, but images that you take or create are better.

Whatever you choose to use, make sure all the images are high-contrast and colorful. That helps them pop in the hectic and crowded space of someone’s Facebook newsfeed.

Write top-notch copy

 While there are some tricks and tactics that can help your blog get attention on Facebook, nothing can beat solid copy. You can have the best headline and imaging and people still may not click on your blog post due to weak or uninspiring Facebook ad or post copy.

Those 140 or so characters that you write to describe the blog post in the Facebook post or Facebook ad are vitally important to getting people to read your blog. Make the copy stand out.

Use testimonials, ask questions, give a solution to common problems, use a clear call to action, appeal to people’s emotions. You need to capture people’s attention with your copy to get them to read your blog.

Facebook can be a powerful tool in promoting your blog content if you want to learn more about how to make it work for you, check out my done-for-you system.

[bctt tweet=”The purpose of life is to be useful, honorable, compassionate, and make a difference.” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

Here are some tips from my friend, Michelle Pescosolido that all great Internet Marketers should live by to be successful.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR   Michelle Pescosolido

Michelle & Bill Pescosolido are successful internet marketers who have earned multiple 6 & 7 figure income streams online.  They both are committed to helping entrepreneurs around the world achieve success.  This site and all articles on this site are here to help you as a reader and are also here for our team member’s to share.

Trust is generally low among consumers. In fact, about 32% of consumers have trust for businesses and only about 13% trust advertising. So, if people don’t trust advertisements who do they trust? Their family, friends, and co-workers.

You can take advantage of this trust. By establishing trust with your target demographic and making it a priority, you can dramatically increase referrals and word of mouth advertising.

Why should prioritize customer trust? Because it’s key to repeat business. This is one of the top factors that lead customers to either stay or leave a business.

Make Sure That You’ve Got a Quality Product or Service

Customers want quality. If you’re purchasing a pair of pants and find that they’re uncomfortable, you probably wouldn’t purchase the same brand in the future. This applies to your products or services.

It’s hard to be impartial about the quality of your own products or services. The best way to find out if they’re living up to the expectations of your customers is to get their feedback. When you send a “thank you” email following a purchase, include a link to a simple online survey.

Keep track of the input that you get from customers. When it comes time to revise or update your products or services or release a new item, you can use this feedback to improve the quality. You may even find additional features that your customers want that you wouldn’t have considered.

Don’t Use Misleading Claims in Your Sales Copy

Your sales copy impacts your conversions. But, it also impacts customer trust. Don’t use misleading claims or promises that you can’t deliver in your sales copy. If you expect customers to trust you, you need to be truthful.

Truthful sales copy is beneficial for both you and your customer. By giving honest claims, stats, and figures, you’re setting realistic expectations for your products or services.

Solve Customer Complaints As Soon As Possible

When a customer has a problem with a purchase, you should resolve the issue as soon as possible. This helps you establish a positive relationship with a customer that may otherwise take their business elsewhere and damage your online reputation.

Contact the customer as soon as you discover their complaint. Respond promptly. Use their first name, if possible. Don’t make excuses and don’t try to pass the blame onto the customer. You simply need to fix the problem in any way possible—even if this means giving a refund.

Don’t Bad Mouth Your Competition

If you’re discussing your competition, either directly to a customer or in your sales copy, don’t be disrespectful. Customers are smart. They see trash-talking as a method to make your products look better than the competition.

Instead of focusing on your competition, you should focus on your own qualities. If you can highlight the strengths of your products or services, there’s no reason to bad mouth your competition.

Always Stick to Your Promises

The final suggestion for establishing trust is to always stick to your promises. When you make a guarantee, you need to stand by it. The same is true of any claims that you include in your sales copy, promises that you use in marketing and personal guarantees that give to customers.

When you say that your product or service can deliver a specific result, you need to ensure that you can keep that promise.

Establishing trust with your customers doesn’t need to be difficult. Keep these tips in mind. If you want access to more powerful marketing tips, as well as a way to generate conversion-ready marketing prospects every month, then click here to learn about my done-for-you system.

How To Start Increasing Your Conversion Rates in 4 Steps

After you’ve spent money and time to generate traffic, you need to increase your conversion rates.

Your conversion rates are instrumental in your success. So, how do you increase the percentage of people that complete the desired action? By targeting the right people and rethinking your existing strategy.

Generally, if you’re having trouble converting traffic, there’s a reason behind the problem. Find out how to solve this problem and start boosting your conversion rates. Rich or Poor

#1 Change the Intended Action

The first component that you might need to change is the intended action that you want from visitors to your landing page. For example, if you’re expecting these visitors to make a purchase, you’re taking the wrong approach.

Instead, you should focus on getting your traffic into a sales funnel. Don’t give visitors the hard sell on your landing page.

Give them an irresistible offer, such as a downloadable guide, so that you can capture their email address or contact information.

By itself, this step should lead to higher conversion rates on your landing pages. People are more willing to give away their email address in exchange for a free offer than they are to make a purchase on their first visit.

You’ll then follow up these leads with emails, encouraging them back to your site to make a purchase.

[bctt tweet=”Partner with me and we will pay you a portion of the revenue.” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

#2 Improve the Speed of Your Website

The speed of your site can also impact your conversion rates. It makes it hard for people to scroll through the page and view all the elements. Though, the real problem is that people don’t want to wait. Every 1-second delay leads to a further drop in conversion rates.

Check the speed of your landing pages. The page should load in less than 3 seconds. After 4 seconds, over 25% of your traffic will leave.

To improve speed, remove elements. Keep your page simple. You don’t need a sidebar and an abundance of plugins. A landing page should have a single focus, so there’s no reason to include anything unrelated to the main purpose of the page.

A landing page typically includes a headline, text, a few images and videos, and a form. Don’t clutter the page and slow down the speed.

Another way to improve the speed is to optimize your images. If an image is only going to display at 200 pixels, you don’t need the original image to be 1200 pixels. Determine the maximum viewing size of each image and scale them to those dimensions.

Also, reduce the DPI to 72. When viewing an image on a web page, there’s no need for a higher resolution.

#3 Improve Your Audience Targeting

If you’re having trouble with conversions, your target audience could be to blame. You should make sure that you’re targeting the right people.

Use the demographic data in your website analytics to analyze your traffic. Look for the traffic that converts. Find out what makes these visitors different from the ones that don’t convert. You might find that a particular region, age range, or gender results in higher conversions.

You can then use this data to improve the copy used on your landing pages. Then, adjust your PPC ads to reflect the data. Change your targeting options to focus on the right regions and target your audience based on demographics.

#4 Don’t Use Too Many Fields in Your Forms

Another factor that could result in lower conversion rates is the form on your page. Whether you’re collecting email addresses or offering a product or service, your form should be easy to fill out. If people need to stop and think about what they’re doing, they may change their mind.

The form should only contain fields that are necessary to complete the action. For example, if you’re getting people to join your mailing list, you really only need their email address. Though, you might want to get their name, so that you can personalize their emails.

But, if there’s no need to ask for their phone number, address, country, and other data unless it’s needed to complete a purchase.

If you want to increase conversion rates, you’ll need to look at what you’re doing. Make sure that you’re choosing the right goal for each landing page.

Use Your Own Name as Your Brand

In order to be thought of as a trusted authority in your industry, people need to know who you are. This means using your own name as your brand. You can have a name for your internet marketing business, but you should focus your marketing on your individual brand.

When you write blog posts, guest posts, release videos, write eBooks, and distribute other content, you should use your own name, instead of your business name.

Start Writing Guest Blog Posts

Once you get good at writing blog posts for your own site, you should start writing guest posts. When people start recognizing your name across multiple websites, they’ll start seeing you as someone that knows their field.

When you visit popular news sites and blogs related to your industry, you should find out if they accept guest posts. This information will typically be found near the footer, the end of blog posts, or in the about or contact section.

Take Part in Interviews or Podcasts

Any time that you have the opportunity to share your opinion on a topic, you should volunteer. This includes interviews and podcasts. Both are great opportunities for getting your name out there and reaching a larger audience.

These two options may take a while to achieve. Before you can establish a name for yourself, you may not get very many invitations to be interviewed.

Become Active in Online Communities and Forums

Combining these steps will help you become an authority in your industry. It will take hard work and commitment. But, the reward is great. You’ll be able to reach greater success if people turn to you for answers.
