How to Increase Your Facebook Followers using Twitter

Facebook is one of the top social networking sites which you can use to drive huge traffic for your blog. When you combine the Twitter and Facebook to drive traffic to your blog, you will surely get bonus traffic for your blog. I always suggest bloggers to target Twitter and Facebook throughout because  if your post get viral on any of these social media sites, you will be getting decent traffic spike. One of the easy way to drive traffic via Facebook is using a Facebook fan page. When people click on like button of your Facebook page, whatever you are sharing on your fan page wall, will be visible into facebook timeline of fans.

Facebook Followers Via Twitter


Another way by which you can drive traffic is by auto-sharing your content on your Facebook profile. Now to make most out of it you should have a considerable amount of friends on Facebook and especially those who are interested in stuff written in your niche.

Twitter is tool for internet marketer, blogger and webmasters. Most of the twitter users falls in the above category and making them joining your Facebook profile is good idea to drive quality and targeted traffic.

I try to make sure that my Twitter followers also become a friend on Facebook and for this, I send a Twitter Direct message to all new followers saying:

It’s pleasure connecting here, will love to see you on Facebook


Many of them who are real followers and like my sharing, they connect with me on Facebook.  There are many tools which you can use to send Auto Direct message. One which I use is a free tool call Social-oomph.

One thing which you should take care of is, use Facebook as a real human instead of making it an auto Facebook profile (Bot Facebook profile). Interact with your new friends on Facebook and get to know them.

10% of my WordPress services clients comes from Facebook. One of the major reason is that I interact with them and this way they start knowing me and my work.

One last thing here is don’t combine your personal and blogging life into Facebook. Even if you add all your family and online friends on Facebook. Make sure you make good use of Groups and Privacy feature.

Do let us know, if you add lots of friends on Facebook or you use it for personal use only?

      Robin this is something which I learned by my mistake..Earlier I added all my friends, family and bloggers friend on single profile and with me post updates my personal friends started complaining since blogging/tech related post is not for everyone…
      Since that time I started creating a big wall between my friends and Blogging life.. and it helps a lot …

      Make sure you either take help of privacy settings to create a difference between your personal and professional/marketing friends..Else use a difference profile for marketing friends.!
