Have you ever noticed when you log into Facebook that sometimes you’ll see funny, entertaining, or informative posts that make you want to click on the “like button” without thinking?
In many cases, these posts will also contain a tiny bit of affiliate marketing – maybe they’re a small business owner who’s trying to grow their audience and needs affiliate marketing professionals to help them with the process – and you’ll see an invitation to enter an affiliate marketing contest on the post.
You’ll likely wonder how you missed out on this opportunity and maybe you’ll even click on the contest invitation just to get a closer look.
Well, today I have a special announcement to make regarding a new product integration that will bring you one step closer to that coveted “like” on Facebook.
What is this product integration and how does it work?
This new feature allows you to integrate your Facebook account with your ClickFunnels account so when someone “likes” a Page or Group on Facebook, we’ll automatically tweet out an acknowledgement that you feel is worthy of a “like” on your blog.
If you’ve ever used ClickFunnels, you’ll know that we offer a variety of paid traffic options. From $5 to $100 a day, we’re probably one of the biggest affiliate marketers networks in the world.
With all of this paid traffic, you’ll naturally want to follow up with some organic posts to continue engaging with your audience. But how do you know what to write about?
When someone “likes” a Page or Group on Facebook, we’ll pull the associated content – images, videos, and blog posts – into a live, automated feed that’s displayed on the top of their homepage.
So, if you’re the administrator of a Page or Group on Facebook, this is a great way to gain more exposure for your Page or Group by having interesting and engaging content readily available on your website.
If you’ve ever run a Facebook page for a business, this is a great option to be able to promote your business on a platform that millions of people use every day.
Why should you care about getting a “like” on Facebook?
Well, for one thing, according to Facebook, people who “like” your Page or Group are more likely to spend money with your business.
In a world where everyone is trying to grow their online businesses and attract paying customers, “likes” on Facebook essentially function as virtual shares that provide businesses with free advertising on the platform.
On a more personal note, I’ve found that having a “like” on Facebook has actually helped me gain more interest and engagement from my existing customer base on social media.
As someone who runs a business that offers a paid coaching program, I’ve found that having a “like” on my Facebook Page motivates my customers to take advantage of the free advice and insights I offer on my blog.
So, in short, getting a “like” on Facebook is a little bit like getting a free promotion on social media. But instead of paying for each share, you’re paying only for the platform to reach a potential audience of millions of people.
How does this integration work?
With the new Facebook integration for ClickFunnels, all you have to do is paste a special URL into your website’s source code which will then, when a visitor clicks on it, route them to your Facebook page.
For example, say your domain is www.janetmarketing.com and you want to promote your business’ Facebook Page. You would simply go to your website’s source code and input the following URL: https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https://www.facebook.com/pages/Janet-Marketing-llc/166848858917343
What you’ll see next is a popup window prompting you to login to your Facebook account. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be presented with a feed of posts that your Facebook friends and other users have linked to in the past. You can then select one of the shared posts and “like” it.
This is a great option for businesses who want to have interesting content on their website but don’t necessarily have a lot of technical knowledge in that area.
For instance, if you’re a small business owner who wants to grow your customer base and have content posted to your site featuring products you sell, this is a great way to get the word out. But if you’re not sure how to set up a blog or want to focus your resources on growing your business instead, this is a great option for you as well.
The Bottom Line
Getting a “like” on Facebook is a free way to promote your business or blog on a platform that millions of people use every day. Naturally, you’d want to follow up with some organic posts to continue engaging with your audience but if you’re looking for an easy and quick way to get the word out, this is a great option to consider.
