boost-it-TuesdayEFC

Have you noticed that despite ALL of your Facebook “Likes” you are only “reaching” a very small portion of those followers? Does that bother you? It bothers us, and we want to boost each other up. Link up with Every Free ChanceCandace’s Book Blog, & If These Books Could Talk for  Boost It Tuesday!

 

What is Boost It Tuesday, you ask? Well, we want to help each other out. We are a great community of bloggers and authors, and we should be supporting each other. Share your Facebook address below, then visit the Facebook pages, like 3-5 posts, share or comment on 1 or 2 posts. That’s it. You don’t have to “like” the page if you don’t want to, just “like” some posts. Let’s help expand each other’s page reach. Who knows! You may find a new blog or author to follow along the away. Please be aware that any non-Facebook links will be deleted.

 

Here are some tips for Boosting. A big thanks to Kate at If These Books Could Talk for the image!

As an added bonus, Candace, Kate, and I will be hosting a giveaway each week just to say thanks for the boost!

 

For this week’s giveaway, head over to the If These Books Could Talk Facebook page and answer the question in the Boost It post!

 

Remember: Like, comment, and share!  Let’s all give each other a boost!

  1. I’m incredibly grateful that Jennifer Theriot let me know about this awesome marketing program. Anything grassroots like this is right up my alley. No matter how compelling our social media content may be, it can’t engage an audience that can’t see or find it!
    This is my first time participating, so far be it from me to offer up suggestions so soon… but: can everyone try to leave thoughtful, conversational comments on posts and links? I think the general public will confused at best, put off at most, by seeing comments like “Boost!” and “Happy BIT from [insert self-promotion here].” Even something as simple as “I like this” or “Cool!” would achieve the same algorithmic effect without being so obvious about the strategy.
    If I’m missing something, please let me know. I met a lot of interesting bloggers and authors today. I don’t want to get off on the wrong foot.

    • Thank you for joining us!! It is a weekly event. We’ve been doing it for about a year now. It does help boost those page/post views. Please feel free to offer suggestions!!!! I think the “Boost!” and “Happy BIT!” comments are more about showing the page owner that they are supporting them through Boost It Tuesday. That the event is what brought them there and that they are happy to be taking part. I usually do one of those comments and then a few other comments that have nothing to do with BIT. I hope you join us next week. =)

    I agree with hotbluestar! Adding simple comments to posts is a great idea and I did do so one some. This was an incredible idea! I ‘met’ so many nice folks and it was fun hoping from page to page looking at everyone’s posts. The comments I received on mine were great and for the small amount of time invested in doing this, I think we are all one for the better today…..So will this be a regular Tuesday event???

    • Thank you for joining us!! This is a regular Tuesday event. We’ve been doing it for about a year, maybe a bit longer. (I’d have to check the archives to know for sure!) I’m so glad that you’ve had a great experience with it this week, and I hope you join us on any of the weeks that follow. =)
