    Google is your friend. There are 10's of thousands of articles relating to this. No one is going to help someone that won't do the basic research for themselves, unless they are really low on self-esteem and need attention.

    Do your own work, or pay someone!

      By the time that you are regarding them as '"clients," the rapport should already be well-established. Good rapport with prospects is one way you convert them into being your clients.

      Perhaps we're dealing with a terminology issue?

    If you start PMing random people from Facebook groups you'll probably be kicked out of the groups quickly.

    No one likes to hear from strangers saying, "Hi, how are you today?" You won't build rapport that way no matter what anyone tells you. You will get blocked quickly

    Read the rules of the group carefully before posting anything.

    You may be allowed to make posts and then say, "PM me if you'd like more information."

    If they pm you and ask for information then you can send it.

    As Spartan said, if you prove yourself to be someone who helps people by offering valuable information in the group then you'll show you're someone who knows what they're talking about. You can build rapport with fellow group members that way but it takes some time.

    As Optedin just said, if you're talking about clients that's a different story. You should be building rapport based on the work you're doing for them and what they're needing.

    If you're an expert in your field you can start your own group. It's hard to get members without some paid advertising. You can do Facebook lives to build some interest, But again, you have to be sharing information that your targer audience wants.

    Hi Wonstar,

    Give freely to get easily, if you generously give freely for a persistent period of time.

    - Join Facebook Groups related to your niche
    - Answer questions in those Groups
    - Like updates
    - Share friend's content on your wall
    - Comment genuinely on updates

    The more you give freely - persistently - friends visit your profile, click your link and boost your free traffic.

    First of all, I suggest you to be interested in what you are trying to get traffic for.

    Let's say you are interested in football (the european one) and you have an e-commerce store selling all the gear necessary to play it.

    If I was you I would make a fb account with your site's branding and start interacting with football fans through different groups, pages content's comment section etc.

    If you want free, then that's the type of hustle you have to go through

    We have had a lot of success posting in relevant groups.
    We've also used paid FB ads, but find they don't work as well for us.
    Having a business page helps a lot.
    We have built a nice community who come to our events and purchase from us.
    People on Facebook don't like to be sold to so concentrate more on giving value.

    Post about your service and ask to comment if they need more info. PM the link to your service to people who ask for it.

    The most important thing is not to engage in spam !!!

    Facebook will block you very quickly for this.

    Help people, really write smart and useful answers and then you can add your picture to the answers or refer to the fact that they wrote you a message and you will tell all the details personally. And in personal communication, you can already insert a link and it will be 100% interested customer.

  • To get started on FB, you need to add friends or join groups with same interests. You need to be engaging with other posts, willing to talk to others and share what you are doing online.

    For facebook traffic you should work on your content , also keep in mind that the facebook post should me more attractive , the content should be good , if there are any sort of offers then it should be framed in the good manner and there should be the fomo part that means fear of missing out .
    our audience should be specfic related to your product

    make fanspage about your business, join a group that suits your business, make facebook friends as much as possible (as far as I remember maximum 4K) then don't update status too often about your business.

    You can post useful content in Facebook Groups. Join groups that are relevant to your niche. Interact with people and offer valuable information.
    You can also create a Facebook fan page and post quality content on there.

    -You can add people that are interested in the same thing as you are, and have a good profile with a picture and a link to your offer at the bottom.
    -You can go into other groups and help people out, have them be interested and go back to your profile to check out the link, once again.
    -You can create a fanpage for whatever it is you want, with good content, and share that content in other groups or in your timeline

    You have to make sure you've decided on your niche though.

    I'd say those are some of the ways you can do it

    I agree with most of the posts - getting involved in Facebook groups related to your niche can be useful.
    BUT - do not spam. Try posting relevant content, help others with useful tips and learn from other posts. Do not generate posts in short times as it can get your account blocked by facebook.
    Best of luck!

    Definitely start by just promoting yourself for free before you get into paid trafficking. As soon as you start making a bit of income, then supplement your trafficking with some of your revenue. Shoot me a DM if you wanna hear more about this! Much love

  • To get good targeted traffic on facebook you need to be interacting with people. This is because fb has programed their algorithm to use Signals That Heavily Favor Active Interactions such as comments and likes, so when you post on your facebook timeline, it doesnt matter whether you have 5 or 5000 friends, if no one has liked or commented on that post very few people will see it.

    I say Facebook Groups. Be active, engage with other people, show your authority and expertise. But don't drop your link in these groups. Just optimize your Facebook profile with links to your offer in you bio. Optimize your Facebook banner photo as well and you should get traffic for sure!
