One Simple Step Increases Facebook Reach

If you manage a Facebook page for your business or products, you may have noticed a recent decrease in the reach of your regular status updates.

Why?

The answer is simple: Facebook altered their algorithm to favor shares instead of updates.

What does this mean for you and your page? How can you increase your reach when you share information with the people who like your page?

Again, the answer is simple.

Instead of posting information about a new page or product on your website in a status update—usually a small bit of text and a link to the page—share the info directly from your website.

First, go to Facebook and select “Use Facebook As YOURPAGENAME” from the gear icon at the top, far right. Then go to your website and click the share button on the page your want to share, or if you don’t have one—and you should!—use the share feature in your web browser (may be an add-on in some browsers).

After you share the info, return to Facebook and click the gear icon again to use Facebook as your own profile account. Share the status update from your page timeline on your own personal profile timeline.

Viola!

You just tickled the new Facebook algorithm and their system will now share your content through a larger potential array of viewers.

Magic Chatters: An Untapped Traffic Source

Magic Chatters: An Untapped Traffic Source

Introducing the official MagicWholesale magic chat room! wholesalemagic.com has teamed up with Cybergician—the premier new magic chat community—to deliver our clients an untapped traffic source.

One of the challenges of lone chatrooms scattered across the Internet is that they do not have enough chatters at any given time to keep momentum. Online magic shops, for instance, may only have a few visitors who want to chat throughout the day. When potential chatters get to the chatroom the chat is empty, so they just leave.

Collectively, there are hundreds of magicians who want to chat about this subject we all love—magic! If we have several sites all feeding the same chat, we will pool together one large group of magicians.

That’s why MagicDealers has partnered with Cybergician. Their non-profit business model is unique and fills a valuable niche. Cybergician doesn’t advertise on their own site, but they will build you a custom interface that you can link to and advertise your products and services all you want.

Everyone with a custom site shares the same group of online magicians in which to fill the chat; to keep the momentum.

What does it mean for our group of certified magic stores? Magic Dealers now have a place to meet up with current customers, plus gather new customers! You can chat with fellow magicians through our custom branded interface, or create your own custom chatroom and link to it on your site.

We are one of the very first affiliates to join this massive project and I think it will be big! You can be apart of the magic. Click here to contact me and I will create for you a custom chatroom for your website.

TREND: MagicDealers.com Invade My Stats

16If you have a website, you have the ability to view and monitor your traffic statistics. Most server companies have a statistics program built right in to their administration panel. Many webmasters prefer Google Analytics, one of the best, free traffic monitoring services on the internet.

There are many services out there. I use four—yes, four!—separate analytics programs to measure and tweak the traffic for Wholesalemagic.com.

Recently, my team and I revived MagicDealers.com and officially re-launched the site. I thought for sure this was going to take months of intense, hard work to create a “useful” resource.

Turns out, I was wrong.

When I checked my stats today, MagicDealers.com was my NUMBER ONE REFERRAL SITE in my host’s stats program and NUMBER FIVE in Google Analytics non-search engine referrers. (that’s why I use more than one program to monitor my traffic, they don’t always match up perfect)

What does all this mean? It means we are off to a fantastic start. If you are listed on MagicDealers.com, great! Check your stats. You might already be getting a significant amount of traffic from the directory. If you haven’t signed up yet, what are you waiting for? Start getting MORE TRAFFIC TODAY!
