Ah, Facebook organic reach. No other subject in social media marketing has caused as much controversy...or as many headaches. While many social media professionals have noticed a decline in Facebook reach over the last few years, the effect has become more extreme in the aftermath of the 2018 Facebook algorithm change.
While the obvious answer is to devote more time and money to paid Facebook ads, there’s still hope for your organic posts and here are the tips I have gathered together from a variety of sources.
TIP ONE: Mix up your posts
TIP TWO: Go Live
TIP THREE: Use attractive videos and images
TIP FOUR: Use your analytics and find the best times of post
TIP FIVE: Experiment with how often you post
TOP SIX: Create posts that positively create engagements
TIP SEVEN: Make sure your followers have the notifications for your page switched on
TIP EIGHT: Make sure you are encouraging your followers to create content like reviews, sharing images etc.
To really build your FB presence it would be silly to ignore FB ADS. We all need to consider paying for advertising and it doesn’t have to cost the earth. My bonus tip is to give it a chance.
My recommendation would be to have a go at my 14 day challenge that I ran in my FB mentor group.
