Facebook Reach Calculator Says… Go with CoPromote

Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 11.16.23 AM

Everyone’s upset about Facebook’s decreasing organic reach for pages. The good folks at Shift Communications have done something constructive about it: they created a calculator so that people could estimate the cost of reaching their own audience.

You can find the calculator here: http://www.shiftcomm.com/facebook-page-cost-calculator/

Using ourselves as examples, here’s what CoPromote could expect to spend in order to reach our own fans on Facebook, using Shift’s calculator.

CoPromote FB Friends, followers, fans: 26,513
Promoted Posts per day: 3

With 26513 Likes, your Facebook budget to have 3 post(s) by your page seen by 100% of your current Likes is $397.70 per day.

Plan to spend $103402.00 for the remainder of 2014 on Facebook Promoted Posts at 3 per day if you want all of your current Likes to see your Promoted Posts.

Almost $400 to reach our own followers, with little chance or reaching new people or extending our network.

Fortunately, on CoPromote, you can reach new people with every post – for free. And, if you decide to pay or subscribe, you can definitely reach more new people through us for less.

Best of all, CoPromote is 100% opt-in, so everything that is being shared through us has been reviewed and endorsed by the people sharing it.

Plus, you can add them to your CoPromote network, which means they are almost 100% more likely to share your posts again next time they see them.

Give it a try, and let us know: How much would it cost you to reach your own people on Facebook? Then join us and a community of content creators dedicated to sharing each other’s posts and reaching new people.

How to Make Facebook’s Algorithm Work for Your Brand: Post Links!

An optimistic study points to a bright spot in Facebook’s ever-shifting newsfeed algorithm.

According to an article by ShopIgniter, one way to make your posts stand out is to include links. Media-rich posts still seem to do well, but for those cases when you don’t have media to attach, it’s encouraging to know that adding a link can boost the presence of your posts.

Fortunately for CoPromote members, sharing links is what we’re all about! Any traction our members may lose in the ongoing adjustments, they can make up for it by being connected to a network with thousands of similar people eager to share their posts for them. As reaching your own social circle becomes more difficult, being able to reach beyond your circle becomes increasingly valuable.

Below is an excerpt from the article in Business Insider. Click through for more details.

ShopIgniter looked at posts made by 15 major brands in the two weeks before and after this later tweak, and found that while reach for text status updates dropped a staggering 65%, reach for photos and videos posted stayed about the same, and reach for link posts actually jumped 30%.”

How Facebook’s “Story Bumping” and “Last Actor” Can Help Refresh Your Headliner Posts

Facebook announced Tuesday that they are adding two new changes to their newsfeed algorithm.

Via AllFacebook: “Story Bumping”, which allows engaging posts you haven’t seen to be bumped up to the top of News Feed later in the day, and “Last Actor”, which takes into account the last 50 engagements a user has performed, and gives those users a slight bump up in News Feed ranking.”

Based on test results. these changes will help make users’ content more visible. On their blog, Facebook explains: ”With so many stories, there is a good chance people would miss something they wanted to see if we displayed a continuous, unranked stream of information. Our ranking isn’t perfect, but in our tests, when we stop ranking and instead show posts in chronological order, the number of stories people read and the likes and comments they make decrease.”

This is good news for Headliner members.  Whenever someone recommends you, we provide a direct link to the post so you can engage new audiences directly. With “Story Bumping” and “Last Actor”, there is a better chance for your recommendations to be “refreshed” in the newsfeed when someone (including you) engages with the post.

We are looking forward to seeing how this improves engagement levels and we’ll be keeping you posted. Meantime, let us know how these changes are working out for you.
