How To Get Free Traffic From Facebook Even If Your Fanpage Is Lame

Getting started with a new site is TOUGH. Nobody knows about you and it just feels like you keep pushing stuff out and nothing happens.

You can't rank on Google because your site has no authority, you can't get those easy email and social visits because nobody follows you yet.

It's just very demoralising to be putting so much time and effort into creating great stuff that so few people consume.​


Today's tutorial is here to help you prevent this issue. If you use the tactic I describe in the video, you'll be able to generate traffic to your content the same day without any need for a popular site or page.

Without further teasing, here is the video:​

As usual, if you have any question, let me know in the comment section and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Great stuff!

What’s your conversion for this? I assume groups are a lot more valuable than fan pages, since people get notifications when you post.

Also, outside of the IM niche, I’ve found it very hard to find really large groups. Any tips?


    Gael Breton - August 25, 2014

    Hey Perrin,

    Thanks for dropping by. Conversion really depends on each group to be honest. If the group is a place where people are just spamming their link and not chatting then I’d say it’s pretty low. If the group has lively discussions and real interactions it can be awesome. We’ve seen as much as 300-500 hits from a single link share.

    What I would suggest is to use the google analytics URL builder ( and tag shares in each group for the first time to see how well it performs for you. Then just write down those that work out and focus on these ones to promote your content.

    Additionally you probably want to talk to people, interact and make yourself a part of the community. Not just post your links.

    As for finding groups, it’s pretty easy if you have graph search enabled. just type “groups about x” and you’ll find plenty. I know you’re in the shaving niche and here are a few examples I found just typing groups about shaving:

    These are perfect for your niche.

    I hope that helps

    First of all, I would like to thank Gael for this AMAZING post. There are too many internet marketers out there struggling to get traffic. How many people out there with mind-blowing websites that the world NEEDS that will never get enough traffic to get their ideas out to the public? How many people stuck at 9 to 5’s struggling to make money online only because they just CAN’T GET TRAFFIC? This is an extremely thoughtful post. The world needs more people who would create an article like this that could help the struggling moms out there trying to make money online.
    This article has helped me A LOT. You see, I’m starting a new venture. This is the first venture of mine where I will really be trying to drive good free traffic. I never really tried before. This new venture (site) is ‘the one’. It literally HAS to work if I can get enough quality, targeted traffic to it, and this site could make BILLIONS. So what I am looking for is high quality, PERMANENT (no work needed to maintain – long term – hands-free), targeted, free traffic. Although this article doesn’t give a traffic source like that, it gives a way to increase the targeted free traffic of my site and I WILL be using this. But my main source of traffic will be permanent free traffic.
    High quality, permanent, targeted free traffic is the best type of traffic you could get. It’s hands free and pure ROI. So I highly recommend that anyone reading who needs traffic look into it. Some good high quality, permanent, targeted, free traffic sources you could use are number one an ad site where you could post a permanent ad and push it to the top of the search results for your keywords and your category’s page 10 times a day, and there are advanced ad statistics. There are also feature PPC ads that go on top of the free ads that you could bid on for the first position, with a $0.01 load minimum and a $0.01 click minimum, in case you want to eventually pay for traffic, as well. You just sign up, post a permanent free ad and you’re getting permanent, free traffic forever.
    Number two is, a photo sharing site. To get traffic with this site you have to create interesting, niche targeted images or take interesting niche targeted photos or screenshots, sign up, upload the photos using proper tags (keywords) to make the traffic targeted, and say in the description of the photo: “Feel free to use this image, but give credits to”, and then you’re getting permanent, targeted, free traffic forever from people sharing your photos and crediting your link.
    I wanted to tell the person I’m replying to: You can find larger Facebook groups by going to the profile page of some of the top contributors of groups you’re already in and checking what groups they’re in. They’re probably in a lot of larger groups and you can scroll through and pick the ones you like. Hope this helps.
    Thanks a lot, Gael. You really don’t know what this means for me and how much you’ve just helped me. Does anyone know any other ways I could get targeted, free traffic? I would be ever-thankful if you could share one with me.

Hi Gael,
Just watched this tutorial. Can you recommend any good online marketing groups? Not spammy but somewhere to learn things.
Many thanks

Paul - October 20, 2014

Hi Gael,

I am loving your Blog CSS and theme. It’s clean and the fonts are so easy to read. Which theme do you use? Is it customized? I need some advice on good WordPress customization service providers.

Erik Emanuelli - January 18, 2016

Hi Gael,
excellent information!
I find Facebook groups a great way to engage with other marketers, bloggers and make new connections and friends.
I’m member of many ones, but I just post on a few.

Thanks for sharing!

David - February 17, 2016

Hi Gael: At the end of the video, you said that you have a blog management service – a team that you have trained to do the type of FB promotion you mentioned. Can you post the link to that service?

Thomas - August 4, 2016

Wow. This falls into the category of stuffs that we know, but tend not to do. Just went there and search for groups, and realized that there is this huge amount of traffic that is not being tapped into. Guilty as charged. :)


Hassan - August 8, 2016

    Gael Breton - August 31, 2016

    Hey Hassan,

    It depends on the rules of the group, some of them require the admin to approve the post which is why you don’t see them immediately

Hey Gael Breton
I got 1k likes on my FB page. I want to engage them, I tried many ways but failed to do. Any idea how can I engage them to come to website and they share my content on their pages

    Gael Breton - November 1, 2016

    Hey James,

    Try Postplanner, it works alright for us.

    Create a survey, and promise a give away that is eyecatching, or ask for a review of a product it can be some random product or your own product. Either way you will be able to build email list and engagement having them hooked for your freebies.

I have really enjoyed your video and learn a lot from this video. We know facebook is the best and most popular social networking site. It is really important for the blogger. If we get the huge fan on our page then it will be easy to get permanent traffic.
Can you tell me the quickest way to get 10K likes on my page? Thanks for sharing.

Carry james - February 27, 2018

I have a Facebook page but not the time to maintain my Content and sharing. I want to engage my Website Visitor Please Suggest me the best idea.

Gaman - August 7, 2018

Great post Gael!

Do you know of a cheap(or free?) scheduling tool that can manage your posting to Facebook Groups?

    JonH - September 4, 2018

    We currently use Buffer. They have a pretty comprehensive free plan that generally gets the job done!
