Seven Ways to Ensure Fans Don't Miss Your Facebook Page Updates

Are you tired of reaching less than 5% of your fans with your Facebook Page posts? If so, you need to find new ways to get your updates in your audience's News Feeds.

Here are some ways you can make sure fans don't miss your Facebook Page updates.

1. Tell your fans to get notifications

Just because people like your page does not mean they will actually see your updates. So, occasionally remind your fans that by choosing the "Get Notifications" option they can make sure they see your updates.

Even better than telling them how to do it, as George Takei does in that example, is to show them. You can use this screenshot, or capture one from your own Page:

This is one update you should boost with Facebook advertising to reach your fans. It could lead to a huge increase in organic reach for your Page.

    Two of the most powerful tips: (1) FIRST share on your page, THEN reshare it to your personal profile and (2) UPLOAD content: Don't share it as a link: Instead of sharing a Youtube video links, upload the video itself! I think you got both. Thanks, Tom!

    I liked many of your ideas here except on number 1 I would resist TELLING people to get notified when you post something. In my experience, most folks are turned off being told what to. Asking is a much better alternative, in my opinion.

    #1 is pretty gutsy. If George Takei does it must be a good tactice.

    Although tip #1 sounds great, and taking a screenshot of your business's page and showing followers where to click would be helpful, you would not be able to boost that post due to the amount of copy in the image. Facebook's ad guidelines limit your image to 20% or less copy, and any screenshot you take of your page with all the button/tab titles would exceed that limit.

    Very interesting article! I love how simple these tips are. I think people get caught up in the ever-changing Facebook algorithm and it just gets distracting.
