Do the following sounds familiar? You work your *ss off to be heard and get people to visit your blog – which is by the way awesome and full of useful tips – but sometimes you have the feeling that not even your friends know what you’re working on. (No matter how many times you’ve mentioned the name of your biz.) Well, it’s time for a change!
I was in the same situation until a memorable moment in a Facebook group. I’ve just joined, so I wrote a few sentences about who am I and why I’m here. A few minutes later Sagi, the admin of the group (Mindful & Ruthless by Sagi Shrieber) left me this comment: “That’s awesome Réka! Happy to have you here in the group 🙂 what’s the link to your blog?”
Yeppp. That was the moment when I realised, that there is NOTHING on my personal Facebook page about my business. I have a bunch of friends and I haven’t even given them the chance to find me.
So I implemented a few changes and the results?
– 105 post likes in total
– 9 comments with congratulations
– 4 new followers on Instagram
– 245 new page visits on the blog
And yes, I know these are not miraculous numbers, but they totally worth 5 minutes of work. Also, since I set up Reka Veszeli as my job, 4 old friends sent me a message about possible cooperation – not bad in less than two weeks 🙂
Facebook will automatically offer you the option to share your new workplace with your network. Just do it 😉
I suggest to do this step 3-7 days later. Why? Because you’ll have the opportunity to post your bio. If you wait a bit you’ll have the chance to draw the attention to your brand and work.
Your bio can be 101 caracter, so be wise and creative 🙂
