To share a little of My Mountain Town's success so you can see that our approach to social media use has yielded significant results, this screen shot is our Page engagement over the past week compared to other similar businesses and governmental organizations (names shaded out because I don't wish to say they are doing a bad job, I simply want to highlight that your marketing strategy and knowledge of Facebook's algorithms goes a long way, and reviewing your analytics is critical). If you'll notice, all of these Pages have many more Likes than we do, and though that is usually the criteria that most people judge a "successful" Page on, it's not the most important. Also note the number of times that the Pages have posted over the past week and compare that to the Engagement. It's a little hard here to analyze this without knowing what Pages you're looking at, and we'll go over these without them being hidden in the class.

Despite having the fewest Page Likes, our Engagement beats out many other Pages and it's your Engagement that tells Facebook that you have a post of interest that they should show in more Newsfeeds than usual (thus boosting your Reach to more people). You don't have to have tens of thousands of Likes to reach tens of thousands of people, and if you learn to use your Page effectively, you can reach many more than are in the Closed community Facebook groups. I want to emphasize that these are all "organic" results - no paid ad boosts are included in these analytics (I very rarely pay to boost posts and never to get new Likes).

If you'd like to find out how we've done this, and the recommendations we have for how you can do this with your page, sign up for the class!
