“Keep your Facebook Fanpage above water…be authentic, be a leader and listen to what your audience is talking about, then engage.” ~ Carol Lawrence
So you created a Facebook page and now it just sits there. No one comments, likes or shares your stuff. Why? For one thing it’s possible you do not have enough valuable content to share and two you aren’t engaging with your desired audience. The third possible reason is your audience doesn’t even know you exist. Trust me your audience is online and most likely on Facebook, unless you are a jewelry or clothes maker for 10 year old girls then you should be on Instagram. Facebook is like a party. If you go and sit in the corner not wanting to be noticed by anyone chances are everyone will leave you alone. On the other hand if you go to the party looking to connect with old friends, meet new friends and catch up on all the latest news, ready to mingle and have fun you’ll be noticed. Facebook is reciprocal. People notice who is talking to them, commenting on their updates, sharing their content and overall who is noticing them online. You can’t just expect to post something cool and have it go viral or be seen by everyone. You have to get active, and get serious about growing your page. Don’t pay for “fake” likes this in the end will set you back. You want to grow a loyal audience who truly desires to know what you are all about. A few other Facebook tidbits. Keep in mind Facebook gives attention to pages that pay.
Do you want to get in front of your desired audience? Run some Facebook ads, target your audience and be sure to target “mobile users”, this is very, very important. Most people tend to check in on Facebook from their smart phones and mobile devices. When someone leaves a comment on your page, like it and respond to it. Not only does this show them you are paying attention, you value their input but it also bumps your update back into the newsfeed for others to see.
