Can anyone offer some advice on how to get things rolling? I have visitors but I feel like noone is signing up. I have some good content too, it's not like its a plain website. I don't see what the problem is. If anyone sees anything bad, can you let me know. Thanks
Ok , I Have a little facebook advice from a newbie experiment that may help with Fb "likes" on your pet forum.
Thursday I installed rss graffiti in my facebook community page. (My forum isn't up yet its a couple months out still)
this enabled me to send RSS feeds from many other FB fishing pages to my own FB page.
I set it up for some really good feeds that saltwater fisherman would like- about 10 feeds. Its pretty much free but could cost up to $5 a month for more feeds.
Friday I decided to try the FB promoting my page ads. Just to see - as a experimental type thing. $5 a day for 10 days. - they claim to get 4-16 likes per $5 spent.
I had 1 like(me) before experiment. Made sure my rss graffiti was dialed in first with some good posts combined with my own posts and then I turned it on.
In one day (so far $4.65 spent) I got over 60 likes so far and at least a few new ones every hour. I then have my fb posts linked with twitter, so all these rss feeds are posting on my twitter too as well as my own twitter posts.
I will let you know how it plays out. Its a little experiment just to grow my fb page and awareness. You can easily do this with pets- everyone has a pet
Hi Billy here is the wed Am update . 213 likes. $19.46 spent so far. I have it on a $5 a day limit. Its about the same I spend everyday on Rockstars and starbucks So I don't think its that much to get the site a little traction. I like the FB thing. Its funny that you can track what posts everyone likes and click on etc. So far the ones they like are - "big surprise"- Hot fishing chick pics. I also did a "sea hag Friday" where I posted some homely sea hag fishing. That got a lot of traction too. Be sure to post some pics of Hot chicks holding some pets on your site. It gets a lot of play.
the experiment continues. Goal is 5000 likes before I launch.
