|How To Use Facebook To Boost Adsense Earnings|
When it comes to promotion most people will turn away from Facebook and concentrate on other social media platforms. But due to the sheer numbers of people who use Facebook, it really should be the first site you start promoting on. Unlike many other posts like this, I will be giving tips for both bloggers and YouTubers to follow along with. Today we go onto Facebook...
Tip 1: Use a Personal Page, NOT a Business Page
If you are promoting yourself as a "brand" then go ahead and use a business page. But if you are running a solo YouTube channel or Blog as yourself use a personal page. Why? Because it is far easier to "game" the system with a personal page. The secret to boosting your Adsense earnings with Facebook is all about those engagement numbers per post. Its no good having 1 million Facebook "likes" on a business page if you only get 1 or 2 likes per post! By using a Facebook personal page you can trim those not engaging with your posts out of your system and you can't do that as easily with a business page. The more engagement you get per post means more clicks to your channel or blog and those clicks equal more of that beautiful Adsense earnings.
Tip 2: If You Can Boost!
Use Facebook for paid promotion? You are probably thinking you would need to be a millionaire to get good engagement from Facebook these days, but that is not the truth. In fact, just a single $1 (£1) post on each post can gain you more friends and more clicks on that post back to your channel or blog. Even the smallest of FB boosts are worth doing and by doing it for just a few weeks you will soon reap the benefits. Don't be scared to boost posts, it's not as costly as you might think and you should get that back in all those clicks through to your content.
Tip 3: Big Groups and Pages
Tip 3: Big Groups and Pages
And now we move onto a pro tip. Don't be scared to try and post your latest videos and blog posts on MASSIVE pages. Are you playing a game from EA? Then post it on the main EA page, sometimes they will indeed allow it to be seen by everyone and it is well worth doing, especially if you are a beauty and makeup blogger. Big pages mean big promotions and by testing all big brand pages and groups you will soon learn which ones will allow you to post on their wall and which ones won't. Just a single wall post from these pages can mean MASSIVE amounts of Adsense earnings. So don't be scared, try and get a shout out! Just don't push it, don't over do it and never get angry if they don't allow your post to be seen.
Tip 4: Never Auto Post
It is far too easy to simply click on "post to Facebook" and never log in again, but that is not going to get those all-important clicks back to your website and YouTube channel. You need to make sure each post looks as good as it can with relevant hashtags, an easy to find link (preferably the in the first line of the post) and a nice sized image. At the time of writing this post the maximum Facebook shared link image size is 1200 x 628 px, so try and aim for that. The bigger the image, the more likely it will be to get seen and of course get clicks on.
Tip 5: Don't Presume a Share, Tell Them!
I'm not going to get into why this works, but I think you will pretty much figure it out on your own. With Facebook, you often need to remind people to share your posts for maximum engagement. Have you ever seen those viral videos and images with large "PLEASE SHARE" wording on it? That is what you need to do these days to remind people to share it! You might think a dedicated fan would share it automatically, but try this method for just a single week and I promise you will be shocked at the results. All that free boosted engagement means more clicks to your content and that in turn means more Adsense going into your pocket.
Some of these tips might seem a little basic, but they really are important to get those clicks back to your videos and blog posts. The more clicks, the more content they are liable to look at and that means more money in that Adsense bank. While I wouldn't spend a lot of time promoting on Facebook I do think it is worth dipping your toes into it now and again, even if that is just once a day.
