Rest In Peace, Organic Reach.
Have you noticed lately that your posts are getting less and less organic reach?
And coincidentally the Facebook “Boost Post” bot is showing up in your notifications like way too much.
You’re totally not alone.
This has been happening to all business pages, as Facebook shifts to make the platform more personal and less businessy.
You probably feel like your putting hours and hours into social media and not seeing hardly any results.
If that sounds like you, I want to give you 5 ways you can reach MORE customers online without paid ads…
Because as impossible as it may seem, it IS still possible.
Here are the 5 Ways to Reach MORE Customers (Without Ads)
1) Show Up LIVE / Use Video
Facebook LOVES video and so do your customers!
Videos give you the opportunity to be more personal, engaging, and establish trust with your customers.
Using video also builds powerful video audiences that you can later retarget with ads whenever you get to that point in your business.
2) Instagram Stories
Similar to the first point, Instagram Stories could be a form of video content, but it could also be a photo or fun boomerang.
When you post an IG story, and then make an IG post, you will find that you surprisingly get more engagement.
This is because IG loves it’s Stories feature and will push your post out more if it sees you are on Stories.
You can post a simple quote graphic, behind the scenes of your business, share new updates, or anything else that you think your audience will connect with.
If you want to reach more customers online, you should definitely be using IG Stories.
3) Create BETTER Content
In social media, content. Is. king.
Everything you post should have a purpose, so be intentional with your content.
Is it likeable?
Is it searchable
Is it shareable?
Intend for every single post to go viral…even though it won’t, still pretend like it will.
4) Engage with your audience
Last week I checked my daily Instagram average, and it was literally 1 minute.
I realized, WOW I have not been very engaging with my following lately!
In order to truly build an audience and reach more customers, you need engagement. And the only way you’re going to get quality engagement is if you engage yourself.
Send direct messages, comment on other posts, reply to all of your own comments.
If you don’t have time to do this yourself, you can hire a college student to do it for you (no shade to college kids, but someone’s gotta do it.)
The best way to reach more customers organically, is to reach out yourself.
5) Pixel Your Website
Lastly, make sure you put the FB pixel on your website.
Although this a tool used for advertising, you want to put that pixel on your site so you can “train” or “season” it for when you are ready for ads.
This will give you access to powerful custom audiences like people who viewed your videos, people who spent more time on your site, and even people who visited your sales page but didn’t buy.
