Tips to remember

  • Schedule posts — Use the clock icon on the bottom left of the status update box to schedule posts to Facebook pages.  At the beginning of each week you can decide upon the content to post and schedule it so that it hits the news feed at the time when you think most people will be looking at it.
  • Use these engagement strategies:
    • Memorable pictures
    • Infographics
    • Ask questions
    • Really interesting quotations
  • Non-sales oriented posts — You may be using Facebook because you want to make sales.  However, make sure the majority of your posts are NOT sales oriented.  Otherwise you will just lose followers.
    • If you have lots of posts that make people want to share them, you will begin to get lots of followers.  Then they WILL NOTICE your odd sales-oriented post.
