How to Use Social Media to Drive Traffic to Your Film Blog
What exactly is a film blog? It is basically an ongoing diary or commentary on any recent film that you have not yet seen. It may be the latest award-winning film or a film that just came out. It is a way to share your passion about film with others and get the word out about the films that you love to watch. It may also be a place for you to learn new things and gain insight about the film industry.
To make money with a movie blog, you will need to write articles about the movies that you are reviewing. The first step in getting started is to set up a simple website. Some popular formats include Blogspot or WordPress. Next, you will need to join a variety of affiliate links to make money with your site. Many people use affiliate links such as Amazon, Google Adsense and Yahoo! Search Marketing to generate revenue for their site.
After joining these popular sites, you can then start setting up your blog so that you can earn revenue from the traffic that visits your site. For example, you can set up a Facebook fan page for your film blog and encourage your Facebook fans to ‘like’ the page. If enough of your Facebook fans ‘like’ the page, they will be added to your list of friends that will be sent an email with important information about your latest movie review. If you send out emails to all of your Facebook friends, you will be sending them important information about your latest releases. It will help you keep in touch with your target audience and it will also encourage them to ‘like’ your Facebook page to show interest in what you are offering.
You can also use the social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook to build up a good following. The great thing about using these sites as part of your film blog is that you can use them to promote your film reviews, ask your followers for comments, and even offer them the chance to buy tickets to your upcoming shows. By promoting your social engagement on these sites, you can gain a group of loyal followers that will be more likely to purchase tickets from you than someone who has never even heard of your blog before. The reason is that by reaching out to your target audience, you are creating a relationship with them. This relationship will then translate into increased sales as well as word of mouth advertising that you can use to promote your website.
In addition to using social media to attract more people to your site, you can also turn those people into potential customers by engaging them in conversations. For example, you can let your Facebook followers know that you are looking for specific types of tickets. You can also ask your followers to pass this information on to their Facebook friends so that they can pass it on to their friends. By doing this, you are creating an opportunity for people to click on the links to your website that are posted on your status updates. Therefore, by engaging in conversations on social media, you are going to be able to take advantage of the exposure that these sites bring to your site.
Film blogs have the ability to really help you gain some momentum when it comes to promoting your website and increasing your online presence. Just make sure that you make full use of both social engagement and the tools that are available to increase the amount of traffic to your blog. After all, it is your blog and it should be promoted to the max!
