Facebook is an indispensable tool in the field of blogging. According to the report published by Statista.com, as of the 4th quarter of 2017, Facebook has 2.2 Billion monthly active users.  Bloggers and online marketers are aware that this platform has the most source of viewers compared to any other social media platform. The only thing we have to learn is how to get the attention of at least a few percents of this huge audience.

Hello, friends! I hope everyone is having a good day. It's a lazy Saturday afternoon at my place. Because today is my rest day, I could devote a considerable amount of time to write a blog post. Today's topic will focus more on using social media specifically, Facebook to help us drive more traffic to our blogs. I am aware that we are all into the field of blogging and we want to gain relevant information on whatever post that we read. I would assure you that this post would be helpful because it contains relevant and timely information we need in the field of blogging. 

As bloggers, we want to drive more traffic to our blogs because more traffic means more earning for us. One of the most proven ways is to gain huge Facebook readers. Here are 10 strategies we could use in order to drive more traffic to our blog:

(1) Create Stunning and Big Images

 Ways to add big images:

(2) Use Short Description

Being creative in the way we post our articles on Facebook could help in generating more visitors to our blogs. We should make a short yet relevant and interesting description of our post. Viewers tend to click links with an interesting caption. The description can be a question, a short teaser or a quote from your blog post. But don't mislead your viewers by creating an intriguing caption that is not related to your post.

(3) Remove the Link

When we place our link to Facebook, it will generate a preview which would suffice and we can remove the link before finally posting it. It would be a clutter-free and the post would look more professional.

(4) Create and Join Facebook Groups

Creating a Facebook group is very helpful in growing our blog engagement. There are other people who might be needing some advice from us regarding our business. Through Facebook groups, we could communicate with a group of people with similar interests. Exchanging ideas and extending help to others is an ideal way in building friendship and rapport. We can share our links for additional information. Thus, a bigger chance of gaining more visitors to our blog. 

Likewise, joining other groups is equally helpful because we can reach out to other people who might be interested in our business. 

(6) Create Your Facebook Page and Connect with Other Pages of Similar Niche

Having our own Facebook Page can do a lot to increase visit in our blog. We can share our links and we can use it to collaborate with other Pages with similar niche. It is a proven way to increase our Social Media exposure. 

(6) Add a Description to Your Facebook Page Cover and Profile Photo

If you would notice, every time you change your cover and profile photo, friends are notified. Grab this opportunity to broadcast your business. Every time you change your Facebook cover, you can attach a short invitation with a link to your blog, group, and pages.

(7) Upload Videos on Your Timeline

One way to capture the attention of readers is by using a video. Having a video on our timeline can help us stand out and grab people's attention. It is also an effective way of retaining a viewer's attention. 

(8) Know When to Post
