Pro tip / And finally…
In case you didn’t notice (and you definitely should) Brian Gardner has been dropping links to some of the best new Genesis stuff over on the StudioPress Facebook page.
But wouldn’t it be a shame if he shared your article to potentially thousands of people and he couldn’t link to your Facebook page to drive traffic and new subscribers to that?
It pains me when I want to drop a link to someone on Facebook and their business doesn’t have a page.
— Brian Gardner (@bgardner) February 2, 2016
Better get a Facebook page then (note, that’s a ‘business’ page that people ‘Like’, not your profile page (where people ‘Friend’ you) or a group (where people join)).
And over here at GenesisWP.guide we’re not immune to taking our own advice so you can now follow us on Facebook too 🙂
Thanks to Sandee for putting together this week’s update!
