facebook ideas

  • First, invite all of your facebook friends to like your page. Once they do, they'll see all of your posts come up in their timeline.
  • If there's a particular video you want to share or get the word out about, you can boost your post for $5. This is great because you can also control which demographics you are trying to reach out to by location, age, etc.
  • Tagging other pages and people (typing in an "@" and then typing the name of the person or page after the @) will be send a  notification for their page about your post.
  • Sharing your posts to your own facebook page will also boost the number of views your facebook posts can receive.
