How to create a Facebook page for your blog?
So, you have decided to start your blog on your Facebook page but don’t know where to start? I have created the perfect seven golden steps to exactly teach you how to create one and connect with your audience successfully!
Things you will need beforehand to create a blog on your Facebook page are:
-A Facebook account. If you do not have one, just sign up with your preferably, work email id and fill out the necessary details.
-The ideology and subject of your blog.
-Have the theme of your blog ready.
-Layout and planning of the content you will upload (at least for the first 6 to 8 posts).
Before we begin, let us assume that the subject of your blog is about the “languages you are learning”.
1. A profile picture and “bio.”
Start by picking a decent profile picture. It does not have to be or has to be a personal picture, but it should be related to your content. Your “bio”, as in, the small introduction that you will be writing what your blog is about.
The first thing people will see about your blog is your “bio”/ introduction, so make it catchy. Be direct and specific about what you are going to post or talk about or upload your reviews and videos about products, and so on.
Make sure that you are being honest and that your content “paraphrases” with your “bio”.
For instance, this is how one of my mates “bio” is for her Polyglot Journey Blog:
Ananya *your name in Hindi* *name in Japanese* and so on…
Native: Indian *Indian flag*
Fluent: Hindi *Indian flag* and English *UK, US, or Australia flag*
Target Languages: Japanese, Korean, German, Dutch, Russian
You need not have to go overboard with it either, just simple and direct!
2. The posts- Images, videos, stories, etc.
The first post, whether it be a picture, video, or story, should be about an introduction about yourself and the purpose of this blog!
“Good morning, everyone! My name is Ananya, I am from India and welcome to my Polyglot Journey! …. make sure to follow me because we will be having lots and lots of fun and I will be uploading about the books I will be studying from, my language progress and updates and I hope to see and meet new people on my journey…”
3. Uploading posts
Whenever you upload a post on your blog, never forget to give a mini summary of what it is about. You can write a few sentences, small paragraphs, or somewhat an article about your post.
But most importantly, never leave your captions empty. Besides having a good caption, using hashtags is what is going to drag the audience(s) attention towards your content.
This does not mean that you bombard your posts with hashtags, just 10-15 hashtags will do for your posts that you will upload while starting your blog because you need that base as well as attention from your targeted audience!
Another tip that I can give about hashtags is that you can put hashtags before your targeted keywords, and your hashtags should strongly pertain to the content of your post, and it should not be misleading, as shown in the example below.
Good afternoon everyone! Today I am reading short stories for children in #Mandarin Chinese because the #vocabulary is easy to understand and will help me improve my speaking, reading, and understanding of the #language.
#linguistics #china #polyglot #hashtagpertainingtomycontent …..
4. Followers and Following
As a blogger, you obviously love followers and appreciate their help and support that they give you. However, there are people out there who do take or try to take advantage of your blog through self-promotion.
Make sure to set auto-delete comment feature in advance for your blog because it can take away the attention of your audience.
Examples of self-promotion are:
“Hey guys, it would be nice if you all can check out my page as well.”
“your posts are amazing, and I followed you as well! Can you check out my content and follow back?”
“Hey, can you check my content out as well! …” “hi, I love your content so much! can you follow me back?”
“can you give me a shoutout?”
Follow only those who are related to your field of interest and those who you look up to, as in your inspiration(s). You can follow back your followers but only do so when you want to see their content as well.
5. Content Ideas
It is really important that you upload original content only and if you see any content from someone else that you feel like it should be on your page as well whether it be an image or content idea.
Make sure to give them credits for it (explained in the example given below) but never plagiarize because that will not only take away your audience but also give a negative impression to your blog.
And as a blogger, you will have a negative reputation on social media. Moreover, it is always better to ask the owner before using their image or posting and then tagging them.
It is considered more professional and formal if you ask them first.
Hey guys! Today I saw *somebody*’s post, and it honestly looks amazing! The layout of the books and the colour variation has been shown so well! ….
Thank you *somebody* for letting me use their image from their feed! ….
6. Keep an eye out for any challenges set by other bloggers.
Participating in a challenge for a week or a month will not only display the creativity of your content but also show your Facebook page out there. And is a good way to capture attention from people as well. How do you ask?
Well, for any challenge, a custom hashtag is used by the creator which he or she uses to see the content of the participants.
Make sure to write creatively because the exposure that your content will receive during the challenges are comparatively more than your usual posts receive.
If you are lucky, your post can be shown as the top post under the hashtag, which will be the first thing that people will see when they click on that hashtag.
30 day learn a new language challenge
Rules about the challenge:
Use the hashtag: #30daylanguagechallenge
7. When to Post and How much to post?
When you first start blogging, it is always better to post at least three times per day for at least a week because if anyone sees your page, you need to have their attention and focus and there are two things they need to see:
-There is some content in this feed, and it is not complete monotonous
-The blogger is continuously posting, and the content is up to date
Later, when you have gained your targeted fan following, you can start reducing the postings per day. For instance, you can start posting one post per day, or have gaps and intervals between your posts.
In this manner, your followers are still curious and do not lose interest in your content.
Tips for keeping your audience interested in your content:
- Whichever means of language you are using to communicate with your followers, do not use slang and keep the language formal as it gives it a label of “family-friendly content”. It, in turn, increases attention and positive comments and reputation about your blog amongst people and your fellow bloggers.
- The main set of hashtags should always come at the end and add space between the end of your caption and the hashtags so that your post does not look congested.
- Be kind and helpful to other bloggers or content creators.
- A lot of people will look up to you as you grow, so do not change or adapt to a negative attitude.
- Be careful about hackers and always have your computer security and anti-virus up to date because hackers may sell your page to others.
- Be clear about whether you have an account on other social media platforms or not. And if you do, mention them on your page and promote them as well! Informing your followers about your other social media accounts can reduce hacking and fake, forged accounts under your name and spoil the name of your brand. Also, do not forget to verify your account and mention that this is your only Facebook page on Facebook.
- Beware of scammers and be careful about who you collaborate with, especially software because your account and your email will become extremely prone to virus and be exposed to other electronic threats to your data. So, cross-check with the authenticity and license of the company and report to the cybersecurity immediately if you are hacked. But be sure that you decline the offer if you see any red flags.
- Maintain a respectful and professional behaviour with your fellow bloggers as having a good reputation is important.
- Be your true-self online and enjoy what you love to do, and of course, create and share your passion with others!
