More Common Mistakes That Could Be Screwing up Your Facebook Presence

Boring Posts

Keep it interesting. As we mentioned last week, less than half of what you post should be directly related to your products and/or services. The other 60-ish% should be fun and entertaining. Did your local sports team just win a big game (Go Ravens!)? Post about it. Is something happening in pop culture? Post about it. Better yet, post about trending topics to give your posts a higher likelihood of being seen.

To see what is trending, head to your home page and look to the right. See the column labeled “Trending?” Well, there you go! Have fun and be creative.

Unengaging Posts

Your goal is to drive engagement. The worst thing you can do is post boring, unengaging content. Instead, post open-ended questions and give your fans a chance to voice their opinion. More likes and more comments lead to greater impressions, which lead to more likes and more comments. That’s what we like to call a win-win!

Photos Schmotos!

If you aren’t posting photos, you are doing it wrong. Sorry! Photos make up 93% of the most engaging posts on Facebook. Images are eye-catching, engaging, and, perhaps best of all, quick and easy to post. So, why aren’t you posting photos? If you add an image to your post, people are more likely to stop and read what goes along with it.

Keep it Business Related

One of the reasons people love to connect with their favorite businesses on Facebook is because it gives them a chances to connect with their favorite businesses on a more personal level. So the worst thing you can do is keep it strictly business. Instead, give your fans a behind-the-scenes look at your business and your people.
