Boost Facebook Likes with Instagram
Facebook brought Instagram for a billion dollars. They then look fondly upon their own product. I discovered the other day that we had been accidentally implementing an advantageous hack to one of our Facebook like pages which is probably why and how it had been quite so successful. Naturally i went through my other pages and started implementing it immediately which equaled some positive results. We all know, well you do now at least, that Facebook is a very visual medium. If i had one piece of advice it would be to make sure there’s a brilliant picture with each post. Having a like page which shares images is a bonus but what happens when you run out of pictures to post. Posting images for the sake of it can look desperate but sharing someone else’s images means community. It means getting involved without plagiarism or seeming bereft of ideas. Instagram is images, the platform is designed to promote pictures and thanks to their merger with Facebook it compliments your like page analytics. When i started uploading from instagram the reach was as good, if not better than sharing from what people had sent into my feed. Not only that, but it is very difficult to run out of content to share. with it being such a focused, visual platform the breathe of pictures, undiluted by narrative, means its also very flexible when it comes to applying it to your message. The fact that its from another platform gives it a feeling of honesty rather than just pinching from someone else in the eye of the public, it still retains its freshness, as if they are being introduced to something new, which they are not.
So if you are a page that relies on content which isn’t being pumped out of the web like water from the hoover damn, ie: a niche business, then hop over to Instagram and see what your equivalent Instagram pages are doing. Worry not about copyright as the photographs will be credited to their Instagram page (which matters not when your followers probably don’t use Instagram) and fill your feed with quality content. The effect of more content is favorable to Facebook’s algorithms and will increase your reach. Obviously too much will annoy your followers so striking a balance is paramount (around 4-6 a day) but if you’re stumped for ideas and constant content look no further to Facebook other company across the appsphere.
