This week’s podcast gives you five top tips for building organic engagement on your Facebook page.
In this week’s podcast I talk about Facebook showing authorship on the bottom of links. Here is an example: a link to my website includes a link to my Facebook page at the bottom:
Here are some of my other blog posts about Facebook that you may find interesting or helpful:
As always, I welcome all feedback so do please leave a comment either here or on my Facebook page. Or if you’re really down with the kids, you could scan my Snapcode below and send me a Snapchat!
I’ve also recently started using Periscope, so come and find me on there; I’m SingleMAhoy.
Fab podcast! I think I need to possibly go through more of your Facebook posts listed above to come up with more questions. Facebook isn't my 'playground' for engagement, as say twitter is. One thing I found really interesting here was the tip on videos. I would assume the same goes for photos? Quick picture or 15 second video is far easier to watch and engage with than something long! I usually share my instagram feed through my personal page but not through my blog, something, in all honesty, hasn't occurred to me. Is it worth doubling these up them? As I have a slightly different engagement on my personal page against my blog. (I have maybe 10% of my fb blog followers as friends and family) At the moment I seem to only be posting links to the blog page so will try featuring more. As for targeting and boosting posts. I have been targeting and boost my blog page at very success and much under the 'recommend' amount (r= 3-5 a day, where in reality it's 1) What would you recommend there? Changing the description slightly? Loved the evergreen post tip as well. Again, I only put post links on and these are usually daily posts rather than recycled ones; can see the relevance especially when the page is growing in numbers. I'm pretty good with the character count as I try to max a twitter count on a post and then extend it slightly for Facebook but will definitely keep this in mind when posting. As for changing the text and picture, I'm assuming that this is a computer generated option rather than from mobile? I'm sure some of these and other questions I have will be featured on your other posts but will have a nose through, and if ok, will compile a list of questions! I'd love Facebook to be as engaged as Twitter. martyn recently posted...Having a Dependant Personality Disorder
Wow, thanks - a great comment! Re Instagram, I have mine set to update to my Facebook page rather than personal account, but I think it's something everyone will feel differently about. For me, there's nothing I feel the need to keep behind a friends filter, and I know my followers enjoy seeing pictures of S. I'm not really sure what you mean with your post boosting comment; I did a podcast about boosting posts so perhaps listen to that and it'll help? And yes, the ability to change text and pictures is (AFAIK) only available on a laptop. If I've not answered your question about boosting posts do give me a shout (DM/email) and I'll do my best to help.
