Here are some simple and easy things to do so as to get more response and improve the overall reach of your Facebook marketing campaign.

1) Improving Post Frequency: As per various online resources the average half-life of a Facebook post is only about 3.2 hours, which literally means that your post will slowly start fading away from the main stream after that time, unless it gets virally shared. So in the general scenario if you want to make people engage more with your Facebook Page or Facebook Group, you should take care in posting regularly and that too without making it a boredom to your fans and followers. Improving the post frequency on your Facebook account will really invite more user engagement and improved reach for your Facebook campaign.

2) Quality Content Posting: These days people don't even care to have a look at content or post that are of low quality stuffy. Low quality content posting on Facebook will make sure that your posting dies the moment it is shared as not one else dare to like, comment or share your post. So always try to care quality and creative content that are sure to be liked and shared by your fans and followers. The more your post gets engaged, the more reach it is going to have. So make quality content posting on Facebook a regular habit to increase your brand outreach on Facebook.

3) Peak Time Posting: For each and every Facebook Profile, Page and Groups, there will be a specific peak time period during which most of the followers and fans are online and the chances of getting wide coverage for the posts are high. Identify the peak time of your Facebook platform and post your content, images or videos based on that peak time to ensure maximum reach of your posts. You can really take use of the analytics features offered by Facebook to identify the most optimal time for publishing your posts on Facebook.

4) Image Embedding : Sharing a website link on Facebook is very much easy and is considered as the best way to get traffic to your website from relevant users. But most of the time we post plain text and links and do not embed any images along with the post. As images are one of the most powerful media for marketing, embedding an image will help in getting more visitors and also improves the changes of getting it shared to a wider audience. So including a relevant image along with your link sharing campaign on Facebook really improves the reach of your Facebook campaign.
