SocialB’s 5 ways to get your post more views on Facebook:
1. Join Facebook!
If you’re not yet part of Facebook, you should be. Use your email address and get connected!
2. Just ask.
As the old adage states: “If you don’t ask you don’t get”. Post your update onto your Facebook personal page with a small but catchy blurb and ask your friends to share it – if they like it enough, they will. The average number of Facebook friends an adult user has is 338 – think of the exposure!
3. Mention people or businesses with large followings on Facebook.
Write a lifestyle post with a title such as “My top ten favourite Instagrammers” and include those who not only post high-quality images, but also those who have a large numbers of followers. Chances are they will share your post on their pages, as they will be flattered to have been mentioned. The bonus for you – you are exposed to their followers who usually will have similar interests to you and your business.
4. Use the “Promote Page” tool
For a small fee, Facebook will expose your Business Page to potential followers. By choosing the location, age and gender of your preferred followers, Facebook can increase your page by 5-110 followers per day. New ‘likers’ will be naturally inquisitive, and if you coincide your promotion with your post, your new followers will be sure to have a read.
5. Use the “pin to top” function
Publish your post on your Facebook page, click on the small arrow in the top right hand corner of the post and choose “pin to top”. A small orange flag will appear in its place meaning that your update will remain at the top of your page for seven days before dropping back to its original place on your timeline. This means that your important post will retain priority for the week after publishing.
