New to FPTraffic and ready to start building your Facebook Page empire?

Social media is changing the way people do business and make money, and Facebook Pages provide a huge avenue for sales. In fact, over a billion people use Facebook every single day.

Building, growing and monetizing Facebook Pages comes easy with the help of a simple management tool. If you’ve just joined our FPTraffic community, here are five tips to start managing your Pages and growing your fan base.

1. Remove Pages

When you first connect your Facebook account, FPTraffic displays all of the Facebook Pages you have created in your Pages Dashboard. You can remove any Pages you do not want on your account so that FPTraffic is only managing content for certain pages. From the Pages menu, click Manage. For each page you wish to delete, click the red X.

Remove Page from FPTraffic

Removing a Page does not delete the Page from your Facebook account, but keeps it from showing up on FPTraffic. You can always add Pages back after you have removed them from your account. Also, keep in mind that FPTraffic enables you to manage an unlimited number of Facebook Pages.

2. Set up a Post Schedule

One of the great features of FPTraffic is the ability to create a schedule that allows your content to post to your Facebook Pages automatically. Set up a schedule for each Facebook Page you want FPTraffic to post to. Your content will not show up on FPTraffic until you add a schedule, so complete this step first. Under the Pages menu, click Schedules. Select the Facebook Page you would like to set your schedule for. You’ll then be able to select the times you’d like your content to post to that Page.

FPTraffic Scheduled Times

Find when your fans are online most and set up your schedule to post at those times. FPTraffic will post to your Page at most once an hour every hour of the day. We recommend posting 2-5 times a day, but test your engagement by posting as many different times a day as you’d like.

3. Disregard “Posted by FPTraffic”

When FPTraffic publishes content on your Page, you will see the note Posted by FPTraffic under the post on Facebook. Don’t worry – visitors to your Page do not see this. It is only visible to you and any other Admin on your Page. Facebook places the text there so that you know which pieces of content FPT published.

4. Find content with the FPTraffic Google Chrome Extension

Use our Google Chrome Extension to easily schedule images from Pinterest, Twitter, Imgur and pretty much any other website with a few clicks of your mouse. The FPTraffic Chrome Extension is one of the best tools available for gathering and scheduling photos to post to your Facebook Pages.
