OK, this is the easiest way to post a link on Facebook. As seen in the above image you would just click on “Write Post” and then place your text with your link in the “Write something…” area of the UI.

Upon pasting your link, Facebook will grab the Meta Title and Description as well as the primary image on the page or post. It will then display it and all you have to do is click the black & white arrows in the upper left corner of the picture to select an alternate picture if you want and then click Post,as seen below.

Once you click post, the link that appeared along with your text caption at the top of the post will disappear and your link with whichever image you selected will be posted, as seen in the below image. And that is it!


Preparation is very important if you want to save time in posting on any social media network. I am sure you are probably looking at all of the text I have written for my posts and are saying, Wow! That looks like a lot of work to type all of that each time I post to Facebook.

Actually EVERYTHING is copy & paste for me. I am the King of Social Media preparation. I have a folder on my computer with 152 different images all relevant to what I share on social media. I also have a text file of about 170 different canned sales pitches in different lengths along with the website links and hashtags.

I have created these two resources over time. Any time I would find a new and interesting image to use that is relevant I save it in the folder. The same goes for any canned sales pitches I come up with. So now when I post I just have to upload an image and copy & paste the sales pitch with link and click Post. Makes my life easier and use of time more efficient.

I hope you enjoyed my training on how to use Facebook to promote my business, and that you now have a greater understanding as in how to get better results for your marketing efforts that a Facebook Page cannot really do for you. Facebook Groups are a better way to market because they are specific to your niche.

Hi Robert,

Great training, and a good read, I hope to be as fluent with time and effort.

Do you think that this is still current? As you have posted in Sep 2015 and FB has moved on quite a bit since then?

I ask as I was considering making my own "Business" page and getting people to "Join".

I look forward to any opinions you may have.

Glyn looks like everything is pretty much current in this training. Some of the visuals might be a bit different now but all the methods still work.

Yes, everything is still current and up to date, just not some of the visuals as noted by brokewebb.

You have shown us three ways to posts in groups. You mentioned that with the first way of posting, you posted the same post for three days in three different groups.

So does this mean that this same post is getting posted a total of nine times within a three day span?
boomergp08 Premium
No. I only posted it 3 times and within 3 different groups, once per day.

Posted in group A once on Tuesday
Posted in group B once on Wednesday
Posted in group C once on Thursday

Robert, this is excellent training and as you well know I was having quit a bit of difficulty with posting in Facebook.

After you helped me understand that there were way to many links in my WA review, I went back and removed over half of them. I then also waited to be excepted into the groups i'd applied to join (something else that you had explained would take a few days, I was just being to impatient).

Then through following your training I was able to post my sales pitch with link into the groups.

So in a very long winded way I would like to say thank you for your help.

Many thanks

Hi Robert! When looking for public FB groups to join, do you have a rule of thumb as to how large/small these groups are? Do you have a benchmark for too large or too small? >10K or <5K? Don't think I saw that in the training. If it was there, I must have missed it. Thanks, Alanna

I am members of groups of all sizes, 70 to 100,000 members.

I'm wondering why I haven't viewed this before now, mmmm. Guess my schedule keeps my mind so occupied till my day off, then I'm scrambling to make efficient use of my free time to build a business and s rat race. Lol
Thanks, Robert, for giving me some much needed ideas to actually get someone to look at what I am presenting, rather than just click a "LIKE" button. :-)

You are welcome. FB Groups are the best way to get what you have in front of people within your target audience. Going to them is always better than waiting for them to come to you.
