Is it okay to share a link to our hub on facebook and promote our hub through facebook advertising?
I do that very thing on my FaceBook Page For Freelance Writers. I share my hubs and promote them with a moderate amount of advertising dollars.
Thank you, I'm glad you said it was alright because I went ahead and tried it. haha. Just a small amount to hopefully get my article circulating some.
I used it to promote fiction. I went into it knowing it would not be profitable. My reason for doing this occasionally is to get my name out to more people so that when I publish, I will have an immediate market. That FB group is only 131, but when I promote, I reach thousands around the world. I have gotten some feedback as well. So I suppose it depends on what you mean by profitable. In the long run, even with fiction, it may be profitable.
Thanks Cam, I gave it a shot so I'll see how it goes. I'm already getting notifications that people are liking my article so that's good...hopefully, I start seeing that people are sharing it...that would be awesome!
Pinterest also has this kind of program, but I haven't used it or even looked at the detials. Good luck with the promotion on FB.
If you have a lot of followers/friends it could be good. Or, if you have a group. Just be very careful how often and how you share the links. Apparently once per week was too much for one person and Facebook penalized them.
Thanks tritrain, I have been extremely cautious with sharing for that reason that you stated; however, I'm so cautious I don't get enough views because nobody knows my articles exist except for my google traffic. Anyhow, what I'm talking about is sharing my article on facebook and paying for their advertising boost of my post...that way they are the ones sharing my article with others ... not me...so I'm sure I won't get penalized for that. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
FB, now-a-days, has become a great source to reach your audience. So, I think, it's good to share your content on social websites. Good Luck!

I would like to see a daily or weekly or even monthly list of words that Hubbers should avoid using (if they want Google Adsense on their Hubs). It would be helpful I think to many writers who don't want to spend hours writing a Hub only to find out they used a 'banned' word in the copy or a word...

We all know that there's so much competition to rank in search engines, and we've all heard that 'content is king', but what does that *really* mean?What it means is that Google is now placing much more importance on the authority, authorship, relevance and uniqueness of the content we create, very...

My FB page dedicated to my writing and other writing related things doesn't have too many followers. I asked FB friends to join some time ago, but I mainly use FB for only close friends and family, so not too many on my personal page.So, I worked up a "Boost" for one of my pieces. I found...

I'm new to Hubpages. Signed up yesterday, in fact. Hello everyone!!My question is this- Does anyone use Instagram as a form of advertising their blogs and URL address? It happens to be the only social media that I have left. I am willing to reactivate Facebook again, if truly needed. However, I...

A few years back when I did Examiner.com, the writers were always talking about where is the best places to promote our work. I feel like once you use all your social media accounts, hit up any forums related to your topic, reddit, and network with people you know, you're really out of places...

Because I have been high profile for my earnings I wanted to be transparent and let you all know that between Oct 2011 and today my HP earnings per day have been basically cut by 60% on average. I have learned to accept that there are going to be ups and downs and prepare for the inevitable downs....
