- Welcome new followers & allow them to realize your blog
Sometimes once I greet new friends on Facebook I thank my new buddy for his or her friendship and add a link to my home page.
I just drop a link once I greet new friends, asking how I can help them and pointing the link toward my blog home page. It’s as simple as saying “Hi” with an immediate message and just copying and pasting your blog link.
This promotes my blog in a non-spammy way. I reach bent help while directing new friends back to the resource that’s my blog.
Greet as many new Facebook friends as possible with a question; ask if they have blogging help. append a link to your blog home page.
Stop leaving such a lot of targeted traffic on the table, frustrating yourself by your utter lack of blogging progress.
Be social. friendly. helpful. Be a promoter.
