Explode blog traffic with these 22 Facebook groups

Have you just started a blog and your not getting many views? or don’t know where to start when it comes to promoting your blog? Well in this post i’m going to tell you how to Explode blog traffic from your very first day blogging simply by just using Facebook groups! 18 days ago this blog did not exist to the world. Although I’ve been blogging for a while on other blogs, I wanted to start fresh and simply DO IT RIGHT straight away .  In the almost 3 weeks of Her Luxe Travels I’ve sen my blog grow rapidly  averaging  just under 100 page views per day . Now that may not seem like a lot, or even anything to you, but ask any new blogger and they will tell you getting their first 100 blog views is Major and i’m almost at 1k in less than 20 days!

These are my Stats as of this morning!  ( The proof is in the pudding !… ok now i’m hungry)


What exactly are Facebook groups?

I’m positive you use Facebook , even my grandma does! Facebook has a Nifty feature called Facebook Groups. Facebook Groups are a place where people who are interested in a certain topic, gather to chat about said topic!

To no surprise Bloggers, Youtubers and Biz Geniuses are taking full advantage of this awesome feature. You will find that influences have created groups for their blogs or for their blog niche . Having a Facebook group is the perfect way to reach your target audience, especially if you have a brand or a product. These Facebook groups will have people grouped together, and eager to talk about the topic (or product). For example moms who love Disney, may join a group called DISNEY LOVERS (I don’t actually know if that’s a real group .. but let’s just pretend it is) In this group all the moms will be sharing their photos, talking about how to make the most of Disney.




So how does this help me as a blogger?

Well there are many groups that exist for the sole purpose of helping other bloggers grow their blogs . Some groups create share threads, where you can post the link to your latest blog post . Once you have shared your link, you then share everyone else’s link and they will do the same for you. This is such an awesome and incredible tool to use a new blogger, because you can get your blog seen by HUNDREDS a day . Think about it this way, if a “big” blogger with thousands of followers shares your blog post with their fans, your brand new blog is now exposed to thousands! Multiply this by however many big bloggers are taking part in the thread, and you can see the potential reach there right?  such an easy way to explode your traffic.

Here’s an example of a Facebook share thread from a  group I use almost everyday called Bloggers Supporting Eachother

As you can see it has over 120 comments,  and its a 24 hour thread.  This  the means other bloggers HAVE to share you blog post within 24 hours OR ELSE!  You can see how super easy it is to follow and join! This post alone has the potential of getting your blog post over 100 shares! It just means you need to dedicate a bit of time to share 100+ posts too. (most participants will share for share!) Of course you can do the bare minimum of 10 .. but I’ve always been an overachiever  so I like to share between 20-30  on any of my social media platforms, then like their blog link comment so they know I’ve shared.  Some Facebook groups are ALL OR NOTHING, this means EVERY BLOGGER MUST SHARE EVERY LINK . Those are my favourite! 


FOLLOW THE RULES TO THE GAME!

To post in their thread , you must follow the rules . Not only is it unfair to everyone else , It’s really poor social etiquette to DUMP AND RUN  (aka posting your link and never looking back .) The Admins are pretty punctual with monitoring the threads and will remove you in a heartbeat!  once they ban you , that’s it !

I’m super organized with my social media sharing and I keep links to everything tucked away in an excel doc! When I need to plan out which days i’ll be using what groups, I use a schedule and checklist.  This is a great way to remind myself what groups I utilized this week. Along with my schedule i’ll hit the SAVE button on the top of each thread, that way I can easily find the group later.

    Awesome! Especially for me as a new blogger! I love the social media calendar!

    I am currently doing the same thing as you. Joining Facebook groups definitely helps in driving traffic, but I believe there are other things someone can do to boost traffic such as writing guest post and networking with other bloggers. Thanks for the tips! Keep up the good work.

    • October 14, 2017 / 2:46 pm

      Yes there are plenty of other things you an do to boost traffic , If you are just starting out as a new blogger , there aren’t many resources available to promote yourself . Writing a guest post may not be a great tool if you only have maybe 1 or two posts . Facebook groups are the perfect platform for connecting , networking with bloggers and also getting your blog out there ! 🙂

    I love tailwind but I have problems keeping up with FB groups so I tend to keep it simple. I will check out the group you mentioned though!

    • October 14, 2017 / 11:15 pm

      YES IT CAN GET SUPER OVERWHELMING! but i’ve got all of mine organized in a list that i can just click and go , then i save each post and archive when i’ve finished the thread (plus turn of notifications because they can get super annoying)

    • October 14, 2017 / 11:16 pm
