Once this was done, I invited all 3,000+ friends on my Facebook page to like the page. So far, I have 38 likes and I have seen the traffic on my blog double this morning. Another great thing about the pages on Facebook is they give you quick tracking of how many people have been reached by your posts, how many engaged, how many responded to your call to action and how many website clicks you had. So the goal has now shifted towards trying to make friends in these groups and then sharing the page with them. We'll see how this works.
In the meantime, I have signed up for Mail Chimp and Hootsuite because I do think that I can still benefit from the automated sharing of messages that these programs provide and I do think that it makes sense to start designing an e-mail marketing campaign. It does appear though, that I will need to start obtaining explicit permission from my customers to add them to my mailing list.
Well I'm off to go finish listing the 1953-1967 Karsh Issue of Canada as I want to try to complete the listings by the end of today, so that I can start on the next set on Tuesday next week.
Have a great weekend everyone!
