How To Increase Your Facebook Audience Reach Using Video

by Marcus Krieg • October 13, 2016

Facebook is becoming an increasingly frustrating problem for marketers.

On the one hand, it’s the king, queen, and ace of social media platforms. The ad network is extremely effective and Facebook’s users practically live on the platform.

But on the other hand, Facebook is becoming increasingly “pay-to-play” as they relentlessly scale back your organic post reach, or the percentage of your fans who see each post you share.

Between January and July of 2016 alone, Facebook pages have experienced a dramatic 52% decline in organic reach.

And that’s just the most recent shift. In 2012, Facebook pages had a 12% organic reach. Today, your reach may be as low as 2%!

by Todd Hartley • August 9, 2016

Whether you realize it or not, you probably already know your company’s biggest advocates.

They might be your childhood friend, a connection you made at an event, the relative you haven’t talk to in years, an old co-worker. Really, it could be anyone on your Facebook friends list.

Think about it — these people know you, trust you, and are willing to listen to what you have to say. You’ve already built a relationship with them, so it won’t take much to convince them that your business has a lot to offer.

The only thing that’s missing is relevancy. Sure, you write status updates about work and share posts from your business’s Facebook page, but those things can quickly get buried in your friends’ and followers’ News Feed.
