Basic tips to get traffic to food blog from Facebook
(Do you want to skip this 😎 ) and directly scroll down to main content?
Create own FB page:
Create your own Facebook page for your blog, put a nice profile picture and wall paper. Write something about your blog in about section and start sharing your blog posts. Share your own blog posts, others posts, share some important updates and ask something interesting to your followers on FB page. Allocate fixed time for doing so and do not for getting to interact with your audiences.
Create FB group:
Create a GB group for people with similar interest. Interact with your group members actively. Share anything important comes in your mind, reply to the query of your other members. This activity may be little time consumable and not so effective to every type of blogs. So take helps your friends or appoint somebody to manage this or start doing so later on when you will start getting a certain amount of traffic every day.
Use similar public FB groups:
This is the easiest way to get some social traffic to your blog and that too so easily. Your first task is to find out some FB group which are related to your blog topic. Those FB groups must be public groups where you can share your posts weekly. So select such 7 groups and allocate each day of a week for one particular group. Now start sharing your blog posts every day on such groups and you will have different FB group for each day. This way you will get some traffic and very much effective for initial days when you have just started blogging.
Use your own FB profile’s wall:
Sharing blog posts on your FB wall may attract some traffic as your friends and family will come to know about it and they may show interest about what you wrote. This may work to some extent but not sustainable as once you will start sharing such posts on your wall then many unknown people will show interest to be your friend what will irritating because every day you will see a lot of friend requests. If you accept their friend requests then your friend list will be full of unknown people what you definitely do not want. I also started doing so and neglected FB page of this blog. I did this mistake because initially I was getting good traffic and so I was happy. But I never understood that it would be a great blunder of my blogging journey.

Tips to survive with fewer Facebook followers
- Build an FB page what you can call the mother of all of your FB page. 😉 . You definitely follow movies, fashion, entertainment news on the internet. AND kill some time during the whole day. Is it true? Then BINGO! You just need to create an FB community page about movies/ entertainment. AND start sharing whatever you will read or want to read. You can definitely share at-least 10-15 without any effort. You can even share movie trailer, comedy comment, anything related to entertainment. I think that you can do effortlessly. But do not specify any time for that. Just start doing so whenever you will read some thing and want to read in future, just share it on the page. AND also start liking few of those shared posts after one or two days. This FB page will be an asset for you. After 2-3 months you can start sharing one or two posts of your any blog. BUT TRY THIS TRICK ONLY YOU HAVE INTEREST IN MOVIES, MUSIC, COMEDY ETC. Otherwise, drop this trick and move ahead.
- Nowadays if you have a food blog then you can not get traffic to food blog from Facebook page without cooking videos. Actually Facebook new feature – Auto streaming video kills the effectiveness of food photos. Most FB users nowadays are interested in watching cooking videos or food related videos. But not everybody can create good videos, so you NEVER can draw attention without food videos. So you definitely need photos on your FB page. In such case, you can try a trick for just limited period (suppose one month). The trick is, start sharing food videos from Youtube and other sites on your FB page. It will definitely draw the attention of Facebook users. AND they will start following your FB page. But two risks are there. First, you will redirect your existing fans towards other site and your new followers may leave you after the campaign when you will stop sharing those videos. But you can take that risk if you are really not getting FB follower.
