Facebook has released details about a new feature Facebook Promoted Poststhat allows businesses,entrepreneurs and more to quickly promote their posts and get updates in front of more eyeballs — but it will cost you. There is a big surprise now isn’t it? It was reported earlier this month that Facebook was testing this feature, but now it’s official. The real deal.
I’ve included some other awesome articles from Mashable at the bottom along with my Facebook discussion from my page and my promoted post- yes I’m doing one for 5 bucks as an experiment I’ll let you know what happens.
Here is my little experiment:
Everyone knows that when you add a post some people see it and some don’t. Facebook is going to up the ante so to speak and make sure more people will see your prize goods if you fork over the Cashola.
If I want to tell my fans about a coupon deal let’s just say on my book Get Famous well now I can pay a little money and more people will see that.
You can target posts based on location or language, and will be able to keep track of how many people saw the post. Any post that is less than three days old can be promoted.
It’s super easy to do just check out the sharing tool to create a post and located next to the “Post” and “Public” buttons will be a “Promote” tab. Click “Promote”, set a budget of how much you want to spend I did mine for $5.
“Your promoted posts will be seen by a larger percentage of the people who like your Page than would normally see it,” So says Facebook “It will also be seen by a larger percentage of the friends of people who interact with your post.” Hmm don’t they want to see me anyway isn’t that why they liked my page to begin with? Makes you wonder.
People will see promoted posts labeled as “Sponsored” in their news feed (not with other ads located in the right column of Facebook). When they Like the post, comment or share, their friends will see it as well. That is pretty cool.
If you want to try this little lovely then go to Facebook.com/help/promote . I’ve also included a few posts from Mashable that are excellent you can check those out at the bottom of this post to learn more including a step by step guide on Facebook Promoted posts.
Here is my thread from my page and what people that I’ve talked to are saying: It’s in a few parts and this still isn’t the whole discussion but as you can see some think it’s great others not so much
What do you thin? Is the Facebook Promoted Posts a good idea for business and fans or …..?
