Don’t forget to boost certain posts

Organic reach is on the fast decline. Facebook has made shift in its post ranking to make the News Feed more about connecting with people and less about consuming media. The average reach for an organic Facebook post is down to 5.2%.

This means approximately one and 19 followers will see your post. To help change this, you must boost a post and increase your ad budget.

Boosting a post is a post that you created that you can apply money to in order to boost/connect it to an audience of your choosing.

When you boost a post, you’ll tell the platform who you want to reach, your max budget and how long you want to run your ad.

We have found that the best posts to boosts are the ones that include a high-quality video or commercial or a photograph. Boosting your best-performing content is more effective than boosting a new post or one without much engagement on it.

Wait to gain some organic traffic on a post before you boost it. Visit your Insights from your business page and click posts to check post performance.

Make sure you also boosts the posts that are relevant to your marketing and business goals.
