Teacher Tip Thursday

Firstly thanks for the kind comments about my video post last week :) I will definitely consider it again one day....

But my tip for this week is to do with Facebook.

You may have noticed a lot of people have a 'blog/business' Facebook page which they use to promote their blog and TPT/TN stores. This is great! I have had mine for a while and it has been building nicely. It is easy to use and not a big hassle to switch between your personal page and your blog page. But anyway...on to the tip.

I have seen many people posting the link to their product in the comments section. At first I thought why? But now I know a couple of reasons and I thought I would share with you.

1. By not posting the link directly in the post, you can upload a much larger picture rather than the very small thumbnails. You know how visual the internet is right? Catch some more attention with a bigger pic.

2. I read something recently about Facebook not promoting posts which contain links that direct traffic AWAY from Facebook. So if you are posting links directly in the post part, all of your followers may not be seeing all of your posts. By putting the link in the first comment, it allows more people to see the post and consequently drives more traffic to your link.

Maybe this is something you can try :)


  1. Great tip; thanks so much. And well done on the speedy Amazon order. I have never had that turn-a-round time from Amazon here in Brisbane; only from Book Depository.

  2. Thanks for the tip...I have been really curious to why links were being put into the comments on FB posts. Now I know :)
