Promote your Facebook page via your email list.
Many of us Bloggers manage their own email list using software such as Aweber, GetResponse or any other email marketing solution suitable.
If you are not at least including your Facebook Page URL in your signature, then you are missing out on opportunity to get more likes and more exposure. Personally, I include my Twitter, Facebook and Google+ profiles. In case you don’t know how to do this, here is a simple HTML code you can use.
Read latest articles on<a href=”www.yourblogurlhere.com“> Your Blog Name Here</a>
<br /> Connect with me on <a href=”Your Google+ URL here“>Google+</a>,<a href=”Your Facebook Page Here“> Facebook</a> and <a href=”Your Twitter URL here“>Twitter</a> to stay in touch.
Feel free to use the above code in your blog or signature. If you use it though, don’t forget to link back to this blog post. I would really appreciate it.
The easier it is for people to locate your link, the more visitors will come to check your page out and perhaps click the like button.
Tailor to mobile users
You can clearly see by the pie chart above that Smartphone traffic to internet web pages has nearly doubled over the past year (2012 – 2013).
This is why you should optimize your website for Smartphones. Go ahead, take your phone now and load your blog. How does it look? Think of loading time. Does it take quite some time for your pages to load? If so, you should find a way to optimize your blog or website for mobile devices.
A good place to start is Google PageSpeed Insights. You can check your page speed for both Desktop computers and mobile phones. Click on the link above. You`ll be asked to fill in your website URL. Once you have done that Google will measure the loading speed of your website and suggest how you can improve it. To see the results for mobile users you`ll need to click on the tab labelled “Mobile” after you`ve checked your website`s loading speed for Desktop computers.
An alternative to Google PageSpeed Insights is PingDom. It works similar to Google`s service.
Use hashtags and tagging people in your posts.
Hashtags are a way to categorize your post so that people can find your post easier. They are usually marked with this # symbol and if you click on a hashtag you`ll see results of similar posts that are using the exact same hastag.
Example: #BloggingWithDani is a great resource for bloggers. Dani is an #awesome dude!
You can also tag people on Facebook and Twitter using the @name tag. Just type @ and start typing your friends` Facebook name. You`ll see a list appear with people with whom you are friends that have a similar name.
You can also tag people on Google+ using the exact same method. However seeing that Google has to do everything differently, you`ll have to use the plus + symbol instead of the standardized at @ symbol.
Ask questions and encourage discussions
This one is probably common practice but it is important that you encourage discussion on your Facebook page. This way people will stay on your page longer and thereby increasing the likelihood of liking your page.
Post comments on Facebook pages within your niche
In which niche are you? Whatever the niche, you can find Pages similar to yours and engage with the audience there. Answer questions that they ask, give your opinion on topics you know something about or ask your own questions.
Make sure though that you provide valuable insights and not just spam the page.
