Facebook page to go a little crazy and like every other page that you come across, and to tell the world about ALL of your great offers in one hit, but that’s not the wisest thing to do. Have you checked our your Facebook page insights lately? Are you finding that you have fewer post views lately, but still sending out the same amount of updates? This could be down to a number of things, however, the biggest reason for fewer post views when folks have gotten a bit over excited with Facebook is that their posts have become “hidden”. Go check your own page now, and take a look at the hidden posts tab. Is anyone hiding from you in there? Is there anyone hiding in hidden posts? Posts appear in hidden posts tab if they have either been marked as spam by someone, or if they have posted the same message in quick succession on a number of walls. Social media marketing is all about engagement, so if you write the same thing on each page that you visit, Facebook will view that as spamming, and will naturally hide your posts. Here’s some ways to avoid that happening:
- Change the message each time that you post on a wall. If responding to someone who has already visited your page in their personal name, return to their page and thank them by name.
- Make a comment that is specific to the page that you are visiting – if it’s a page about logo designs for example, take a look at their photo albums, and comment on a particular design that you like. A message that says “great page” has no thought behind it, and shows that you’ve likely copied and pasted from a previous comment.
- Restrict the number of pages that you post on per day – if you have a big list that you want to get through, do about 10-15 per day, rather than all in on day.
