Promoted Facebook Status How Will You Use It?

I love Facebook and the surprises they bring. I was browsing my pages this morning and I came across a brand new button that seemed to magically appear because it surely wasn’t there yesterday, unless I missed it. This awesome button allows you to make your status update into a sponsored post for anyone who likes your page. With so much activity going on peoples newsfeeds especially if they like several pages and have lots of friends chances of them seeing your posts throughout the day are slim due to not being able to display all that activity.

Why is this feature great? Fact: Only 16% of Facebook users see the updates you post on your business page. The rest of the time you’ve got to hope and pray to the FB Gods that your posts are getting seen, or really track what times of day you’re getting the best reach. Now with a click of a button you can promote a status update just keep in mind that budget you set is a lifetime budget not a daily budget. You also can target by location just like a sponsored story or ad. Which is really convenient especially if your National and only want to run a regional post.

Unlike Facebook ads which primarily is used to gain and attract new people, promoted posts will really give brands the opportunity to engage with their fans, and because of this I really hope they use this carefully.  I use my Facebook for personal use like anyone outside of the digital marketing industry. And seeing things froma user perspective I really don’t want to see annoying sponsored links about some sale. Or if you’re a big retailer please do not sponsor the same sales that you send to my email Everyday~ remain nameless. I haven’t tried this out yet, but looking forward to experimenting soon.

How are you going to use promoted posts?

Ciao~
