Facebook is such a diverse platform, its important not to get sidetracked and read posts about aunt Molly’s cat video or little Johnny’s first day at school. Stay on track and research your target audience and learn more about people who visit your business page including:
• Who are they based on demographics, age, gender, relationships, and job roles.
• What are their interests according to their Page Likes
• What are their purchasing habits including past buying behaviour and categories they are likely to buy.
Advanced targeting can help reach your potential target audience more accurately and efficient way. This will build your traffic, without it you are unlikely to advance on the digital platform. This is where organic reach is an integral part of your Facebook strategy.
Organic reach is where the number of people who had an unpaid post from your Page enter their screen, because of their friend likes or from Follow your Page, engages with a post, shares a photo of your Page and checks into your Page.
