A stagnant Facebook is no joy for anyone. Before you can interact with your guests, you need to get them interacting with you! Here are a few tips to you can start putting into place today to get more action on your page.

Short & Sweet

There is a reason Twitter is popular. You don’t need a lot of text to get your point across. The shorter your message is, the more likely it is to be read. I know that I personally scan over my Facebook and longer posts are the ones I’m more likely to skip over, especially if I’m hurrying. Keep it short and sweet and get to the point.

Fill in the ____

You guests are more likely to respond with a single word when asked. It only takes a moment so they feel they aren’t wasting too much time. You aren’t asking for a long explanation, just a word or two. Even better, ask an a or b type question! Given only two choices to make, you’re even more likely to get responses.

Give Orders

Yes, I’m telling you to tell your guests what to do. Telling them to share or like a post is more likely to get action. If you aren’t asking for a response, your guests are scanning over and moving on.

Picture It

Let’s face it, we like to look at pictures. Using images when posting and guests will like it and share it. How many times do you stop on your Facebook feed to view someone’s photos? Include a photo with your post to get noticed.
