5 Tips to Increase your Facebook Page Engagement:
1. Correct Timing:
No doubt you can post an advertisement anytime on Facebook. It has users active throughout the day, but how many people in your segment are active when you are posting your ad or running your campaign?
Let’s consider, you are running a campaign from the USA while your client base is from India. Posting ads in the morning from the USA will cause you lesser engagement since it’s night time in India and online/website traffic will be comparatively less.
To overcome this, one time of day needs to be targeted when the maximum client base is using Facebook.
It is recommended to use the ‘Scheduled Posts’ feature of Facebook available under ‘Publishing Tools’ option.
They say, “Life is too short to be serious”- absolutely right from the marketing point of view. A little humor does no harm. If your content is little brainstormed and blended with the right amount of humor and wit, more are the chances that your post will be shared thereby increasing your online visibility. Humor has a positive effect on the audience and of course, no one hates humor.
The best thing about Facebook is that it supports the wide use of both visuals and text.
Of course, content is the king of digital marketing but these days no business is making bad content. How to outshine?
The answer comes down to using great visuals. In a situation, where you and three of your competitors publishing the same kind of content, people will be drawn to the one using the best visuals first, and you never know, their search might very well end there.
People around the globe are different but what gets them close is Facebook. So why don’t we make efforts to get close to our customers too? Asking questions, giving challenges and things alike that makes people interact with your posts can be of great advantage to reach out to more people.
Interactions, however, must not stop here, prompt tailor-made replies to comments and messages should be taken care of efficiently. This gives customers the feeling that they are special and valuable to the company.
5. Stay up to Date:
Trends in Facebook keeps changing for good every now and then and every Facebook marketer must be aware of what is the most ‘in’ thing in the market. Facebook’s new big feature of posting stories can be used at a great advantage.
