Boost a Post
Posting on your Facebook business Page

Posting on your Facebook business Page lets you:

  • Stay top of mind with people who are interested in your Page.
  • Keep customers interested and engaged with industry information, product updates, event notifications and more.
  • Reach a larger audience with boosted posts.

Connect to your audience with Facebook posts

Posting on your business Page is a great way to let your customers and fans know what your business is up to. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your updates:

How Facebook business Page helps you connect with your audience

Share meaningful updates

Whether it’s content related to your industry or updates on what your business is doing, stay in touch with your audience with Facebook posts. Use short, fun-to-read copy and eye-catching images to get attention. You can even schedule your posts to save time.

Get more attention for a special post

When your post is published, you can bring more attention to it by pinning it to your Page or embedding it to your website. When you pin a post, it will remain at the top of your Page so it’s the first thing people will see. Embedding a post means it will appear on your website.

Entice customers with news or special discounts

Use posts to make special offers to your customers, invite them to events or share the moment with a live video

Create posts on the go

Download the Facebook Pages Manager app to your mobile device to create posts for your business from anywhere. It’s a great way to share up-to-the-minute updates and photos with your audience.

Reach more people with boosted posts

If you want your post to reach an extended audience beyond people who like your Page, you can boost a Page post. Once you create a post, click the Boost Post button and follow the steps.

Get your post to a larger audience

When you boost a post, you select the audience you want to see it. Choose people who like your Page, extend it to their friends, or even select a new audience that you tailor by age, location, interests and more.

Set your budget

You’re in control of how much you spend on a boosted post—we’ll never charge more than the budget you select. The budget you select is the per-day price of boosting a post. Depending on the audience and budget you choose, you may or may not reach the maximum amount of your budget each day.1
