Your Facebook page is growing daily. You see the number of “Like”s you’ve received increasing daily so you know your content is getting in the hands of more and more people all the time. And yet, even with all this exposure, you aren’t seeing a significant increase in business. Why?
Identify Your Best Posts
The first thing you want to do is check your metrics. If you have been experimenting with a variety of different approaches, check your posts to see which ones caught the most traction. Facebook is helpful in this regard as it will let you know when you have a post outperforming your standard. They do that in an attempt to get you to pay to promote that post, but it’s helpful to let you know what customers are keying on and what YOUR audience finds the most interesting.
Why is that important? Because it’s not just about getting people to come to your page, it’s about getting them to like and share your content. Everyone’s news feed is full and prioritized by Facebook to show the things they are most interested in seeing. That means that if they don’t actively interact with your page on a regular basis, they run an increasingly large chance of missing your future posts.
Cater To Your Audience
So now you know what content gets the most attention, what do you do with that information? You pander. You create more content in a similar vein. Getting the Like is important, but engaging your customers after the Like is even more important. Engagment keeps them involved with your business and keeps your brand in the front of their minds. And more customers thinking about your business means more visits and more sales!
Customer interaction is the entire point of social media. And their interaction with your page shows their desire to see your content. With that in mind, don’t be afraid to seek them out on other social media. Someone Likes your page on Facebook? Reach out to them on Twitter or Instagram.
When customers express an interest in you, don’t be afraid to express an interest in them.
