Facebook is a better place to drive traffic. The fact that it is the third largest and popularly used platform after Google and YouTube, make it a better place because 70% of the Facebook community comes from Africa.
This can be a target audience if one considers using their Facebook accounts to send people to a website or a channel.
It is not a simple job to drive Facebook traffic due to some reasons as of the restrictions set along with Facebook privacy policies. Never mind about that anyway because I am here to tell you how to deal with it.
I will be telling you how to go about it at the end of this post. Facebook does not work comfortably when its community members use or share links within their own profiles or to a friend’s timeline, a group or page.
When one does that, it is seen as an insecure form of communication. So, because that, it is ideally very difficult to share information from an external website including YouTube, to a friend or group of friends. Do you know why this is?
As soon as you share a link to Facebook, the Facebook algorithm will limit the number of people who see your post.
This will directly affect your post engagement and if you share misleading information, your engagement will soon drop and you can easily see zero likes every time you make a post. And that is a more discouraging factor.
The people who use Facebook are 70% of youth who have nothing to do in there except to watch, read and view images. These are the category of people to be targeted for traffic.
The best way to win Facebook traffic is by automating it. If you do that, everything is a walkover. Did you know that you could build an audience of over 30,000 friends on Facebook? Ask me how.
Well, we all know that having a personal Facebook account allows only 5000 friends and when you reach that limit, you can not approve more friendly requests for that account.
That is one of the privacy policies which Facebook introduced to protect its users from scam. You can breakthrough that limit and add more friends than you know to your account or target friends of friends. There is no penalty if you do this.
So, how do you get to this? Use the audience tool kit- Simple Social Tools software. You gotta traffic for your site or channel.
