How to Market Your Blog Through Facebook

Are you new to Tip Junkie? If so, check out the FAQ.



My inbox is full of bloggers wanting to know how to add their blog to Facebook. I am new to Facebook because I thought I was way to old to be on it. {{giggle}} It took me hours to figure it out. So below is a brief tutorial.

Many of you may be wondering why? It's simple; free marketing. An announcement shows up on everyone's wall who becomes a "fan", which can generate more potential "fans". Also, every time you update your blog, it adds the post name to your Facebook wall for everyone to see. That's automatic press baby. (Oh yeah, and your family & friends can stay updated on your posts via your RSS feed on your personal wall. :)

Social Media is such a great way to promote your blog. I'm now a believer since I received over 430 "fans" on the Tip Junkie Facebook account in 2 days. However if I could do it over, I would promote my Tip Junkie Networkedblogs account instead of just my Facebook account. Luckily for you, you get to learn from my mistakes. {{giggle}}

Here you go, how to Make a Facebook Account for your blog that updates the RSS Feed automatically.

1. Go to Tip Junkie's Facebook account.
