Want More Traffic from Facebook? Come Join the Facebook Club
As you guys probably know I run a private mailing list, called the Retweet Club, where members can exchange retweets to get more traffic from Twitter. There is a social media platform much larger than Twitter, though, and I figured it could be worth to launch a new club specifically for that one. It will be called the Facebook Club.
How It Works
The objective of the club is simple: to help its members get more exposure and traffic from Facebook. Basically each member can submit one weekly request, and other members will either “Share” or “Like” the requested piece with their Facebook accounts.
Suppose we end up with 50 members, each with around 500 friends on Facebook. If all of them shared your content on their Facebook accounts you would be exposed to 25,000 people. That is the idea.
The club works as a mailing list, where members will both post and receive requests via email. The club is also private, so no one can access the messages, and you need an invite from me to get inside.
Here are the basic rules you need to follow:
1. Each member can send only one request per week. This is to make sure the volume of emails will be moderate and that only quality content will be submitted.
2. Members can submit requests for quality content only. No spam or commercial stuff (i.e. no pages selling something or promoting affiliate deals). A good rule of thumb is: Would other people want to share it naturally on Facebook? If the answer is no, don’t send it to the club.
3. The request should contain the title of article/page, and its real URL (i.e., no shortened links). Obviously the requested article/page also needs to have a Facebook “Share” or “Like” widget on it.
4. Members are supposed to vote on at least 80% of the requests. The 20% margin is to allow for content that is completely unrelated to your niche/interests.
5. No off-topic chat. Members can use the mailing list only for voting requests, to make sure the volume of emails will be moderate.
How To Join
The club is completely free, and you can also leave it anytime. The only requirement for joining is that you must have at least 300 friends on your Facebook account. If you do, simply send an email to email@example.com, including your Facebook user. After that you’ll receive an invitation to join the club.
Make sure your email address has an active Google account on it, because we use Google Groups to power the mailing list.

Hey Daniel, I’ve sent you a mail but you are not responding. I want to join the club
I have a facebook fan page and I also have a personal page. Do I need the 300 for my fan page or does my personal page total count as well? I’m at almost 200 for my fan page but over 250 for my personal one thats linked to that account.

I’m happy to be part of this group. Thanks Daniel.
What do you mean when you say “Members are supposed to vote on at least 80% of requests”?
What is ‘vote on’?
If you mean click ‘Like’, there’s no way I could justify sharing or liking THAT many articles all the time. All my facebook friends would block me from their feeds for spamming them!

One link in one week is good idea.
Though I believe that old member or quality member should get more freedom.
Daniel … what do you think ?

Daniel … is there any reason to pick 300 friends (why specifically 300?)

awesome idea! I’ll send you my request 🙂
Daniel, this sounds like a great idea! I just sent an email. 😀
I do like this idea and coincidentally I just welcomed my 500th Facebook fan today! How about that!
It’s just that my blog is about home design and home organization with an occasional post about computer games. I guess I don’t really fit the profile?
I think you would be fine Maaike. After all Facebook friends are more varied, so most niches would be OK.
