Increase Your Facebook Organic Reach With These 7 Secrets
According to the latest stats, Social media is used as much as search engines as a tool for reaching your target audience.
The number of people who view your content (Facebook Page and Posts) without paid distribution constitutes what marketers name as organic reach. Reach coming from paid promotions can also impact organic reach.
Facebook Organic Reach Is On Decline
Organic reach is rapidly declining on Facebook because of 2 main factors:
- The amount of content shared is so large that news feed space is not enough for it all to be shown
- Facebook shows only the most relevant content to each user based on users’ individual interests
However, organic reach is still important as it’s indicative of the real results of your business and the price of converting is a lot less.
So, here below are 7 secrets for increasing your Facebook Organic Reach:
1. Grow your presence by adding context to your content.
This way, your ads will be more cost-effective and your increased brand credibility will drive users to engage more with your page.
2. Share authentic and relevant content.

Social Media contests can help you increase your presence quickly. Define what you want to gain from your contest (engagement, leads, awareness etc.) and based on the goal you set, you can then decide the type and mechanism.
6. Test the waters with post frequency.
Too often is as tricky as too rarely. Measure how often works best for the type of your business and your audience. But remember that the golden rule is to always post high-quality content that implements humor, inspiration, and education. Post all you want, if your content sucks, there is no right frequency that can solve this.
7. Use your most loyal customers.
