Over the last several weeks I’ve boosted my list and audience by 10-15% EACH week!
Yes I’m using Facebook Ads to get some of these results, but not ALL are because of ads!
Here are 5 tips to boost your list (and social media following) by at least 10% each and every week!
1. Simplified Facebook Ads
Of course I’m going to tell you about ads! Facebook ads are one of THE best tools we’ve got in the online business world (or even for brick & mortar businesses). They’re not “cheating” at business at all. They’re a TOOL.
The most important tip to get amazing results with Facebook ads? SIMPLIFY THEM!
Yes, seriously. I will preach this till I’m blue in the face (ha, Facebook IS blue! Sorry, I literally lol’d.)
There are so many different types of ads you can run, so many people who will teach you how to do them or do them for you (for a pretty penny!) but here’s the thing…
Just get started. Even if your budget is TINY. A $5 boosted ad highlighting your opt-in freebie to your audience and their friends. Because you’re
A $5-10 boosted ad highlighting your opt-in freebie to your audience and their friends. Because you’re DOING something! At the very least you’ll get more brand awareness and more people to your Facebook page & site. Win-win (hopefully opt-ins for a 3rd win!)
But remember…you’re not buying emails, you are entrusted with these people to LEAD them and serve them! Please be an entrepreneur that cares to add massive value to people’s lives, not just market like mad to make a buck!
2. Pinned Posts
Another awesome feature Facebook has for us is the pinned post! You can do this in groups your run as well. You’ll see what I mean when you see my Facebook page. All you need to do is go to your page and click the little “v” arrow on the top right of each post and choose one to “pin” or flag at the top.
This is awesome especially if you’re running ads.
Make sure you pin your freebie(s) there at least once a week, and switch it up!
This is an awesome tool that my favorite social media app Coschedule has to help you right copy for your pinned posts and ads that’s more likely to get clicked.
It’s not a perfect solution for your social media because it’s for blog posts specifically BUT they offer great insight into word choice, length and more which can really help you out in the long run.
It’s free and SO worth a try love!
4. Different Graphics
I use tools like PlaceIt to show off my freebies in a way that looks unique from just standard promo graphics made in Canva, Picmonkey or even Photoshop! I also use my own photos and that helps things look less like a marketing graphic (same old same old isn’t good guys!) and makes things more person-to-person and branded better!
So go ahead and make that graphic, but use a placeit graphic or something from CreativeMarket to make it look more unique and personable. You’ll get better results that way, especially with ads!
5. Multiple Pages for Opt-ins (And/or Multiple Opt-ins)
This is something I’ve been testing out for about a month now and it’s taken me from a list boost of maybe 1-3% each week to a minimum of 10% (last week was actually about 20%!)
I have had 3 different freebie pages running with ads over the last 2 weeks. (About a $5 per day budget.)
And now I’m testing each freebie getting it’s own page + targeted ads. And switching them on & off every once in a while. So far they’re looking good, but can’t report too much of a boost yet because we’re only on day 3 of testing this.
BUT this really helps to combine tip #4 and several different page layouts and/or different freebies so you can rotate pinned posts & ads. It just adds more value for people too! (Value=impact=income, always!)
And please don’t read this and think I’m some spammy internet marketer. Believe me, I’m not. I was in that world once and it makes me vomit just thinking about it now. (I worked for many “get rich quick” internet markers in college as a ghost/copywriter and designer for them.)
Half of my ads right now are NOT even opt-in ads. Or selling something. They’re more of a “just because” type of add because that’s SO up my alley. It’s purposeful for me so I run them.
