It’s no secret that Facebook can be an incredible source of free traffic and sales for our business.
Whether it’s selling physical products from our own store, getting extra traffic to our Amazon listings, or simply driving traffic to a blog, Kindle e-book, or anything else.
Back in the days gone by, we could post on a Facebook page and every single one of the followers of that page would see that post on their news feed. In other words, our posts had a 100% reach.
Unfortunately, things don’t work like that anymore…
Facebook wants people like us (people who use Facebook for business purposes) to spend more money on advertising. So because they want us to spend money, they now limit the number of followers who see our posts.
If you have a page with 1000 followers, previously when you posted on that page, all 1000 of those followers would have had that post displayed on their news feed.
Now, only approx 100 – 200 of the followers will see that post unless they actually visit your page.
Obviously, this is not good because the whole purpose of a Page for Business is to get business. Facebook is saying that now if we want everyone to see our posts, we should pay to ‘Boost’ the post, or run a paid ads campaign.
So with that in mind, here are two very inexpensive types of paid ads on Facebook:
‘Boosting’ a post is an inexpensive way of getting more people to see that post. So if you have a post that you really want everyone to see, click the blue ‘Boost’ button on the post and pay a few dollars to reach more people.
Running a ‘Post Engagement’ paid ads campaign is also very inexpensive. Post engagements are simply likes, comments, shares, clicks and often you will pay only a few cents per post engagement.
So is there anything you can do to increase the reach of your posts without paying anything at all?
Yes, there is..
Facebook gives more weight to posts with pictures and/or videos. These posts will have an increased organic reach.
Short posts with images get more shares, likes and comments than do longer posts. People have very short attention spans when they are on social media!
Hope these tips help you!

Want to supplement your income by selling on Amazon?
Today, more and more sellers are fulfilling their ambitions and earning truly life-changing incomes.
Nova Smith started selling on Amazon four years ago after borrowing money from relatives for a few units of stock. In 2014 she generated 3 million in sales. That’s pounds sterling by the way, the equivalent of about $5,000,000 US at today’s exchange rate.
Nova had found herself down on her luck and struggling to pay the mortgage after her son was born with serious health complications and had to spend two years in and out of hospital. Fast forward to today and her Amazon selling venture has probably exceeded her wildest dreams.
The fact is that Amazon is open to almost anyone who wants to begin an online venture. Whether it’s just to earn some regular extra cash, or, like Nova, to build a multi-million dollar empire. Or anything in between!
In the UK alone (which is a much smaller marketplace then the US), the number of sellers generating over £1,000,000 in sales annually on Amazon, grew by 33% in 2014. That’s a massive increase and goes to prove that the opportunity to profit on Amazon is still very much alive and kicking!
Ever wondered how some people apparently manage to get so much done? There are countless examples of people who have generated small fortunes online while still working a full-time job or having a ton of other time-consuming commitments.
The saying ‘If you want something done, give it to a busy person to do’ is SO true!
If there’s one trait that you will find among ALL of these folks, it’s the ability to be highly productive in the little time they have available.
The problem is that we often get into habits of ‘wasting time’ when we’re online and we don’t even realise we’re doing it.
Personally, I need to be very productive when I’m working because I have a number of income streams to keep on top of. Additionally I have commitments, family and otherwise, so if I’m not really productive, I wouldn’t be able to manage everything and still ‘have a life’. Nobody should need to work every hour of the day. It’s not natural and it’s not good for the mind and body.
I’ve put together a list of 4 free online tools that I use to manage my time and help me stay focused and productive. Hope you find them helpful
Make ‘to do’ lists or notes and access them on all your devices. This is great not just for business, but for your personal life as well. You can also share notes and lists with other people. Lots of features, but user friendly.
Never forget or lose a password again. Don’t you find it frustrating when you need to hunt for your online passwords all the time? Or worse, you have not used a particular password for a while and you can’t even remember where you stored it? Maybe you can’t even remember which email address you used, so you can’t even hit the ‘forgotten password’ link! Lastpass takes care of all that for you J
It’s so easy to waste time and get distracted – we ALL do it to some degree. My Hours helps to keep you productive by tracking the time that you have worked. It’s actually designed for tracking teams of employees, but you can use it to track your OWN time worked and it’s free for individual use.
Focus Booster is based on the Pomodoro technique, which has been scientifically proven to improve focus and productivity. It’s been proven that we humans have very short attention spans of around 25 minutes at a time. After that it’s difficult to stay focused on a task without being distracted. The Pomodoro technique works in 25 minutes sessions. The app is free for 20 sessions a month and if you like it, you can upgrade to 200 sessions a month for $2.99.
