Back in March of 2016, over 16 months ago, I recorded this video and started writing this blog post sharing a few organic traffic tips gleaned from April Williams, Creative Brandista, at the Find Your Vibe to Attract Your Tribe Personal Branding Live Workshop I hosted the previous month.
As a result of implementing a few of April’s tips, over 11,000 people saw posts from my Facebook business page over a 7 day period.
In a nutshell, here are 3 big takeaways:
- Keep your business page and your personal profile separate.
- Use your real name, not the name of your direct sales or network marketing company,or your business page.
- Set up your business page as a “public figure.”
Of course, doing those three things won’t drive traffic to your Facebook page. You have to create compelling content that gets shared. In my case, I created a heart-felt call to spend Leap Day in service to others that created a small buzz.
On a side note, I am so happy to have reclaimed most of my eyebrows after chemo made my hair fall out! What a difference 16 months makes. I’m not so thrilled about having to shave my legs again.
It is actually kind of groovy finding all these almost finished blog posts in my drafts. There are 18 other partially written posts in there that can be updated and tweaked. Chemo is a great excuse to be a slacker. Though I still receive intravenous Herceptin treatments every three weeks, I can no longer claim chemo as an excuse, since the treatment I am receiving now doesn’t have the brain-fogging can’t-get-out-of-bed side-effects of Abraxane. So, I will just be an excuse-less slacker if I don’t turn those drafts into awesome posts.
