Facebook recently released promoted posts. A new way to reach more people with your posts on Facebook. With Promoted posts you will be able to reach far more of your fans than with a traditional post, as well as your fans’ friends.
Currently if you Facebook page has more than 400 fans you should have Promoted posts available to you on your page.
All you need to do is start creating an update, or you can use a recent update that you’ve posted within the last 3 days. Type in the post that you want to promote and then hit the Promote drop down button.
Once you’ve clicked on the drop down button, you can choose how much you would like to set your budget at, Facebook uses this example below…
To share a post that you’ve already created in the last 3 days, you will just need to go to the comment area and the promotion drop down should appear as a choice.
*Note: You have to be using the page as yourself and not as the page in order for this to show up.
It’s as easy as that.
All types of posts can be promoted. They just have to be a new post or again, within the last 3 days.
