Engagement  Is Key

On every social media site whether it’s in Twitter, Pinterest, or Youtube, engagement is the key to success and Facebook is no different.

In order to attract attention on your Facebook page, be engaging!

Sharing your business’ updates, replying to comments, and sharing humorous posts are one of the ways to ensure engagement on your Facebook page.

“Communication–the human connection–is the key to personal and career success.” – Paul J. Meyer

Connections are the cornerstone of spreading ideas and helping each other gain success.

Sharing With Others

Sharing your articles on Facebook goes hand in hand with the engagement you create.

What’s nice about Facebook is that when you share an article of another individual, you can create a notification and alert them about it.

Also, it helps to support one another especially in the world of crafters! Crafting is not just about selling and creativity but it is also about friendship and reaching out to others.

Add the “Facebook Social Plugin” To Your Blog

This makes it easy for people to “like” your Facebook page without even visiting it!

Your blog visitors can like your page right there while reading your blog post!

There is a free WordPress Facebook Like Box widget that help you put a “like box” on the sidebar of your blog.

Social Media Marketing

Connections on Facebook are key to gaining more likes for your page!

How? Find a person that is interested in the thing you do. You can do that by adding your Facebook page url to your newsletter when you are doing e-mail marketing or to the descriptions of your video marketing campaigns.
