Last month I decided to try something new. I have been tackling a lot of big projects so I decided to take a break from all that and try something a little easier and created a WordPress blog for one of my favorite TV shows, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. WordPress blogs are easy to setup and with the new season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia right around the corner (it started January 14th), I thought it would be fun to create some content for the blog.
I have also a very large audience for this particular show. I created my first Facebook Page for it on October 13, 2011. Since then, I have accumulated an audience of:
Facebook Pages (6): 543,206 Likes Twitter: 114,900 followers Email subscribers: 60,000 Tumblr: 4,840 Pinterest: 523
My primary channels and focus for this niche has been my 6 different Facebook Pages and the Twitter account. The email list is nice, but I do not mail it often, and the Tumblr/Pinterest users are not as engaged as my Twitter/Facebook audience.
My goal with this blog was to try to generate a 1,000,000 pageviews in 1 month from my social media audience. I have been reading article → Continue Reading
Every year for the past 5 years I have had the amazing opportunity of going to Affiliate Summit conference to represent PeerFly. I have saved every name badge I have gotten from Affiliate Summit and I have 11 of them now! Every year the conference gets better and this year was no exception.
I flew into Las Vegas on Saturday, January 17th. Our team at PeerFly will usually try to get to the conference a day before it starts so we have time to prepare and enjoy the city it’s being held in. Las Vegas is always a blast so once we were settled we went to dinner, I met up with a few friends from the industry, and played some blackjack at the Paris until about midnight.
The first day of the conference Affiliate Summit has it’s Meet Market. The Meet Market is a giant room filled with tons of tables where representatives from companies in the industry are waiting to meet all the attendees. PeerFly did not get a Meet Market table this year so I walked around and met with a bunch of the companies we are already working with and spoke with a few that were new.

Organic reach on Facebook Pages has been decreasing for awhile now. I have noticed it, the members at FPTraffic have noticed it, and Facebook has been pretty blunt about it. However, there is still a lot of opportunity with Facebook Pages and if you use them right there is still a lot of money to be made.
In September I created a new piece of content for one of my Pages that I knew was going to go viral. It has the perfect mix of sexiness and shock to draw the Likes, Comments, and Shares needed to make something go viral. Sure enough, it went viral.
The link post was viewed over 1,500,000 times on Facebook. Do I think Facebook Pages are dead? Absolutely not. However, I do think it is smart to create new channels to reach your audience. I have used my Pages to funnel traffic to a quite a few new channels. I’m building large Twitter accounts from my Page audiences and big email lists as well. Well, I recently added a new tool to FPTraffic to help increase your reach by building an email list from your Page with your Page content!
