If you are looking to increase blog traffic, one of the best social media platforms you can promote your blog on is by joining Facebook Groups.
What are Facebook Groups?
The purpose of a Facebook Group is to create a supportive community with certain people who have similar interests. Many people confuse Facebook Groups with Facebook Page, the difference is that a group focuses on a like-minded group of people to share their interests. For a long time, I was under impression that Facebook isn’t very useful for bloggers how it used to be. So I stayed away from Facebook.
But one day I noticed that I was getting traffic to my blog from Facebook, so I decided to give Facebook a change and created my own Page. I was so excited and kept waiting for that traffic to roll in… but after a few days sadly no one was seeing my Facebook Page. And so I started reading more about how to get traffic from Facebook and that’s when I found out about “Facebook Groups”.
Why you should Join Facebook Groups.
Discovering Facebook Groups I felt like I discovered a whole new side of the “blogging world”. The wonderful thing about bloggers is a supportive community. Before I joined Facebook Groups, I felt so alone trying to figure out this blogging thing on my own. I love Facebook Groups because I found other bloggers just like me supporting each other.
I’ve learned so much from Facebook Groups, as a member you can start interacting with others in the group and ask questions. Also, there are many engagement groups that have Promo Days where you have a chance of promoting your blog. For example, on Mondays, a certain Facebook Group has a Thread where you can Share A Link from your Blog and ask for people to either comment or share your blog post. And since you are participating in the thread, you can’t just drop your link and run. The moderator of the group has certain rules and if you don’t comply and participate you will get kicked out of that group. As you can see Facebook Groups can have a big impact on growing your blog and even increase blog traffic.

Maximize Group Boards to your Advantage (My Tips)
Collaboration is one of the biggest tips I have when it comes to growing your blog. Promo days are wonderful for new bloggers, my biggest tip when participating in promo threads is not to just drop a link, but write a short description telling people why they should engage on your post. Also, you will see threads that require you to PIN ALL in the thread, meaning that if there are 40 comments in the thread you need to pin ALL 40 pins. That’s a lot of work and Pinterest doesn’t like that, and you want to stay true to your brand so if you will be pinning everything in the thread that’s not related to your blog you will just confuse Pinterest and won’t rank well.
If you haven’t joined a Facebook group I suggest that you do so quickly. As you can see Facebook groups are designed for bloggers to come together, connect and help each other grow.
