Best Facebook Post Types, Why Photos Are Not The Best…

As I was going through the new Facebook Insights this week, their new stats for the best Facebook post types was kind of interesting, not what I expected.

We are not involved as much in our Facebook Pages for Discount Cardstock because we now have a social media manager managing it for us.  She has been doing a great job getting the fans engaged and increasing our reach.

Looking through the stats, the ones with the most reach stood out a lot.  I was expecting it to be the photos and memes, but it wasn’t.

What works the best for us are actually status posts.

But, not status post like “Checkout Bazzill Basics new Fall line”

The posts that did the best engaged our fans to take part.  The top posts were asking a question.



The second type of post that had more reach than images/photos was fill in the blank posts.  Basically, kind of like the Adlibs books I grew up with.

Here is an example:
fill in blank

These two types of posts out performed everything else as far as reach and engagement.

As far as engagement, there is basically a hierarchy of interaction.
1) a simple like – This is the easiest to get

2) a share – the next level if they think it is good enough to share with friends

3) a comment – with the comment, they have to put more though into the action so it’s worth more

What kind of posts do you find work best for your Pages?

Hit us up in the comments below, it’s a little extra effort but we really appreciate it!


30 Day Blogging Challenge Begins Monday


One of core focuses for 2013 is traffic.  Over the last year, I think we have lost site of a few core fundamental principles that have affected us in 2012.

Multiple traffic sources, both paid and free is one of them.

We have been really focused on Product development and Warrior Forum, and have lost focus on delivering quality content to our members as well as anyone else tuning into our blog or YouTube channel.

Despite the lack of focus, we still managed to get a partner channel last year on YouTube which opens a lot of additional features.

We are really excited to take our video marketing to the next level this year and will be sharing more details about that in the coming months.

Over the years, I have participated in several “30 day challenges” both from Ed Dale and his team and others including Tiffany Dow’s Squidoo Challenges.

Every time I did, two things happened.

  1. I got fired up about marketing
  2. I ended up getting a lot more traffic to my sites

I also always ended up learning something new.

Well, I think now would be a great time for a 30 day blog challenge to start the new year out right and get more traffic to our sites.

Are you up for the challenge?

My commitment for this 30 day challenge is to blog everyday for 30 days.

You will be extremely surprised at what kind of impact that type of activity can make.

Since I am your host this time, each week, I’ll also be providing updates as well a training on WordPress, and marketing that you can implement right away.

I am starting the 30 Day Blog Challenge on Monday.

I would love for you to join me, and commit to 30 days of blogging.  I guarantee you will like the results!

To get you excited about blogging, I have picked out a video from Mind Valley to see how powerful blogging can be.
