Schedule WordPress Posts with FPTraffic

MichelleMichelle

Do you run a WordPress blog or website associated with your Facebook Page?

One of the best ways to earn money with your Facebook Page is to funnel traffic back to a monetized blog or website. With FPTraffic’s new WordPress Posts feature, you can automatically schedule new blog posts to publish to your Page! Now you’ll save yourself even more time for creating that valuable content on your blog.

Sharing blog posts on your Facebook Page is one of the best ways to promote your website. Our new feature takes out the step of manually pasting your blog post link to your Page at just the right time. Instead, you can schedule your posts to publish when your fans are most likely to see them. Link your FPTraffic posts to Twitter and you’ll save even more time sharing your blog posts because we’ll automatically tweet them for you as well!

The WordPress Posts feature is easy to use, and we’ve got some extra tips to make sure your blog posts grab your fans’ attention.

How to Use the FPTraffic WordPress Posts Feature

To automatically add new posts from your WordPress blog to your Scheduled Posts queue, complete the following steps:

  1. Access the FPTraffic WordPress Posts feature here: http://fptraffic.com/wordpress-auto/
  2. In the RSS Feed URL field, enter the RSS feed url for your WordPress blog. The default WordPress RSS feed url is http://www.domain.com/feed where domain.com is the domain for that blog.
  3. Pick the appropriate Facebook Page you’d like blog posts to publish to.
  4. Check whether you’d like to schedule your blog posts to the top of your queue at the bottom. You can always go into your Scheduled Posts and move them around.
  5. Click Automatically Schedule Posts.

  1. Log into your FPTraffic account and click Content. Under the Bulk Import heading, click WordPress Posts.
  2. In the RSS Feed URL field, enter the RSS feed url for your WordPress blog. The default WordPress RSS feed url is http://www.domain.com/feed where domain.com is the domain for that blog.
  3. Pick the appropriate Facebook Page you’d like blog posts to publish to.
  4. Click Find Blog Posts!
  5. Your most recent blog posts will appear, likely the last 5 or 10. If you’d like to view more of your posts, you can increase the amount of posts returned in your feed in your WordPress settings under Settings -> Reading.
  6. For the posts you’d like to schedule to your Page, click Schedule Post. You can also preview the post by clicking Preview Link.

Tips for Attention-Grabbing Blog Posts

Like we said, sharing your blog posts on your Facebook Page is a great way to funnel traffic back to your monetized website, but it’s easy for content to get lost in crowded News Feeds. Here are a few ways to grab viewers attention and make sure they click your blog posts:

Utilize the Description

Our feature allows you to enter a description for your blog post. Use this opportunity to engage viewers and attract them to your content. Ask different types of questions to draw them in, or pull a compelling quote from your blog post to create engagement.

Share Roundups and Recaps

A great practice for leveraging content is to do recaps on your blog then schedule those to publish to your Facebook Page. Whether you bundle blog posts by date range or by a theme, posting roundups and recaps provides a ton of value to you and your fans. It gives people a comprehensive view of the latest news in your niche, and it allows you to link to previous posts and further leverage your content.

Boost Your Blog Post Content

Create a Facebook ad to make sure your content gets seen by the right people. Facebook ads are a cheap way to drive traffic through to your WordPress blog and increase your reach.

If you run a WordPress blog or website in relation to your Facebook Page, get started with our WordPress Posts feature. Save time by automatically scheduling your blog posts to publish to your Page, and attract your audience to your content by adding attention-grabbing descriptions.

    This is fantastic but I almost wish it worked in reverse. Your site is so great for finding content I would love to build a website based on the posts I make to my Facebook Pages!

      Thanks Dean! I’m hoping to eventually make a custom viral media site script for FPTraffic where you can automatically post your content from your Page to your site and then schedule that content back on your Page (if that makes sense).

        Yep, it does make sense. I’ve found some plugins that will help me do this in the meantime. But what it really allows me to do is just focus on adding good content to my Pages with FPTRaffic, then automates the building of killer content for my websites.
