The dominant social network, unsurprisingly, drives the most social traffic to websites. With well over 1 billion monthly active users who like, share and comment on posts on their feed, Facebook has a ridiculously large and highly engaged user base.
That’s exactly why you need to use Facebook for your business. But frankly, with all the “Definitive Guides” and “How-Tos” suggesting you use Facebook one way or another, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and ultimately fail at Facebook marketing.
That’s why we asked 13 successful founders and members of the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an invite-only organization comprised of the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs, to share their best practical tips for driving traffic to your content from Facebook. Here’s what they had to say.
- Think Context
- Give Them What They Want
- Simplicity, Color, Call to Action
- Ask for the Share
- Love and Laugh
- Make It Exclusive
- Get a Following First
- Be Brief But Interesting
- Post a Short Message and Cool Picture
- Appeal to Vanity
- Write Intriguing Article Titles
- Venture Off Your Own Wall
