How To Market Your Blog Through Facebook

Facebook. If you’re not using it to drive traffic to your blog, you’re REALLY missing out. Back in January, I made a post outlining how to import your blog into a Facebook Fan Page. Unfortunately, the Notes import function is beyond buggy, and it doesn’t always import your posts. In fact, there have been a few weeks where it just stopped working completely!

So I set out to find a more stable solution. After scouring the web for solutions, I came across RSS Graffiti, a Facebook application that gives you a TON of options when it comes to importing your blog feeds. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and I’m THRILLED at how well it’s been working!

Want to get started? Here’s what you need to do.

1. Create a Facebook Fan Page for your blog. (http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php)

2. Upload a picture for your profile, fill out the Info tab completely, and personalize your Fan Page.

3. Add the Like Box to your blog so readers can become fans.

4. Install the RSS Graffiti application, and set it up to start importing your blog posts.

5. Invite friends that are interested in your blog, and encourage them to suggest the page to others.

6. Watch the viral power of social networking drive traffic to your posts!

If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll be happy to help you get started..

    Facebook is constantly changing, and recently we’ve noticed that posts that are auto-posted through RSS Graffiti aren’t getting nearly as many impressions/views as manually posted stories.

    As such, we’re now manually posting links to our stories on FB after publishing them, and we’ve seen huge gains going this route.

    It’s an extra step (one that’s easy to forget at times), but the Insight stats don’t lie!
