Ever seen one of your posts do really well and Facebook says to boost it and sometimes even hand you money for an additional incentive? This is the quickest way to loss money. Boosting on Facebook allows Facebook to get any way possible of increasing your engagement levels.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself that this is a great thing. Well, let me ask you, does a “like” or a reaction put extra dollars in your bank account? The answer should be quite obvious. The answer is a big, fat no.

Even if people commented on your post, that still is a far ways away from people putting extra dollars in your bank account. Even if people shared your stuff and a lot of people talk about your post, until and unless people click on the link to go to your website and enter their email addresses into your squeeze page, you’re just wasting your time.

Facebook post boosts are, by and large, worthless. I know I’m not supposed to say that, but the cat is out of the bag. And unfortunately, Facebook would bend over backwards to give you the impression that it is worth your time and money boosting posts. But believe me, it’s a one way ticket to early bankruptcy for your online venture.

There is a better way to drive traffic from Facebook. In fact, this method is absolutely free. You don’t have to spend money on the Facebook ad system if you know what you are doing.

Best of all, the more you engage in this type of Facebook marketing, the more tightly focused your results would be. Your return on investment improves dramatically and, most importantly, you are able to create a holistic marketing system where you start pulling in traffic from places outside of Facebook.

In other words, you learn certain important data points from Facebook, and then you project it out to other social media platforms. This is how you go from making a few dollars here and there to making bank off your online properties.

Make no mistake, thousands of entrepreneurs just like yourself are making a living off the internet. We’re talking about $5,000, $8,000, or even $25,000 every single month. This is not a fantasy, nor is it speculation or theory.

It doesn’t matter which part of the world you come from, it doesn’t matter what your main language is, it doesn’t matter how educated you are, as long as you’re able to put in the work after spotting the opportunity and coming up with a solid plan that you can commit to executing, you will come out ahead.

Read my book to formulate a quick, easy to execute, compact yet extremely profitable plan for turning social media reach and consumer attention into cold, hard dollars in your bank account.

I’ve got some bad news for you. If your content gets a lot of likes, shares and comments on Facebook, that engagement does not necessarily mean you will be making money. At the end of the day, there’s only one metric that counts. Either people click on your links or they don’t.
