It will take no more than 5 minutes for them. This will help in building a audience base for your blog. Getting 500 members in either a page or a group is a great thing can drive to your blog a huge and consistent traffic.
- Share them. Share your page and group to as many people as possible. Make them join. Ask your friends to invite their friends and share your page on their timeline. A single share will reach to all people in their friend list, and chances are that someone in their friend list will share it again.
