Ya’ll. I’m Growing My Facebook Page!! And I’m so excited about it!!! How??? I signed up for Moolah back in March and I’ve never looked back! Get on the waiting list for when the course opens by clicking HERE.
Is your Facebook business page hopeless? Almost everyone I know in the blogging world has given up on Facebook as source for traffic, income, exposure, etc. I know I’ve felt that way for months (or maybe more than a year now). I even hired a VA to start managing my account – hoping that regular posting would boost engagement and keep my stagnant page from completely dying.
With my last sliver of hope for Facebook, I signed up for a new online course on how to grow Facebook back in March. I’ll be honest and say I was a little worried that the course was more hype than it could possibly be effective, but the stats from previous students looked promising and I really liked the personality of the creator.
In the end (after watching , I signed up just hours before the course closed. I’m so glad I did!
Here I am 8 weeks later (the course is 6 weeks long) and I’m excited to share my results! I didn’t have any viral growth that tripled my fan base or anything like that, but I’m still extremely happy with where I am and the progress I’m seeing.
In 7 weeks I’ve gone from 44263 likes to 53,640 likes (as of May 9, 2017). That’s 9377 NEW likes in just over 8 weeks (over 1100 per week!!!). That’s so incredibly exciting!!
One more thing… you can make your Facebook page profitable!! One integral requirement of the Moolah course is that you be willing to spend money on ads and boosting posts to get your page to grow. No, you’re not “buying” likes – you’ll learn how to gain your true fans that will be engaged.
Also, don’t panic about spending a ton of money – the course only recommends that you spend $5 a day on ads! Even better… you’ll learn how to make that $5 really work for you and actually get your page earning money!
Here’s how the money part worked out for me:
In the first 7 weeks, I spent $179.32 on ads and boosting my posts. BUT… I earned $355.62+ in income directly from my page. So I almost doubled my money and gained almost 7000 new likes.
Granted that’s not a ton of money (compared with my total blog income), but my point is – I made money and grew my page!! That’s pretty awesome, huh?! Here’s where my income came from:
- Amazon Affiliate sales: $ $96.69
Social Mob: $85.93
Sponsored Social Media Posts (various companies): $173.00
Even if you ignore the sponsored work, I still broke even on spending and earning and got ALL the new likes. And honestly, I really think I earned more than that but it’s difficult to track where sales come from on some of my affiliate programs so I’ve only included the money that I know I earned from Facebook.
One other thing you might notice is I didn’t even spend $5 a day. With everything else going on in my business, I wasn’t able to devote all the time I had hoped to following every detail of the course and I ended up not boosting a post every day.
I hope to go back through it and put more of the recommendations into action soon so that I can continue to grow my audience (and my income!!) on Facebook.
Now, I know you’re all wondering… what the heck is this course?? It’s Moolah!! And it’s amazing!!
You can’t sign up right now, but you can get on the waiting list here and you’ll be notified immediately when the course opens on May 22!! Also, you can hop on over and join the FREE Facebook group right now to start learning about the course!
In the meantime, one thing recommended in the course is something I was already doing… inviting people who like your posts to like your page! Did you know you could do that? Go read more about how to do that here.
