Top 5 Ways To Increase Facebook Posts Reach
See What Kind Of Posts Are Doing Best
This is one of the basic and best things to understand what your followers like to read. Is it videos, photos, memes, infographics or just funny posts. You can analyse all these after few days of trial and error. And this can be done using the insights section of Facebook analytics.
Content Is Still The King
After you understand what kind of posts are doing good, make sure you post quality content. Before posting you should think that will people share this with their friends? Put yourself in their shoes and THINK!
Post At The Perfect Time
This is also one of the key factors that affect how much your post gets shared. After few days of trial and error, you will get an idea about when your fans are online the most. This can be seen inside the Posts Report inside the Facebook Analytics.
Use Relevant Tags
Understanding the usage of tagging is really important if you want your post to reach thousands of users. It is vital to understand that stuffing your post with many tags will not do good. On the contrary, it may be counter-productive.
Take this post for example. I have used just two tags and it did the trick.
You have to choose carefully whom to tag so that the post may be seen by maximum users. Check which other Facebook pages are most active and tag them.
One of the classic methods to do unpaid Facebook promotion is sharing your content on other pages, forums and other relevant mediums. This would allow more users to see what you are posting and ultimately increase your reach.
So follow these steps and see your Facebook page fans grow. Hers’s a short video explaining what is Facebook reach by Constant Contact.
