Getting your business noticed on Facebook's news feed has become more and more challenging over the years. Fortunately, there are some basic engagement techniques that companies can follow to increase traction with existing fans and in result capture the attention of new users. Try implementing these four tricks into your Facebook strategy to boost your engagement and reach:
- Post Links in the First Comment
Facebook wants to keep users on its platform. This likely means that Facebook's news feed algorithm shows posts that keep users on its platform before posts that link elsewhere. Try experimenting with directing users to click on your desired link in your comments instead of from the post itself.
- Post a Variety of Different Types of Posts
Variety is the spice of life... and when it comes to social media. Create a variety of different types of content to post to capture the interest of different users. Scroll-stopping images and videos to thought-provoking questions and everything in-between help to create more engagement with your content which will ultimately lead to greater reach.

- Share Relevant Content from Other Businesses
Social media is supposed to be social, right? Sharing helps to build relationships with fans, followers, and influencers. Audit other businesses in your niche or in your local community to forge new relationships and tighter bonds with existing connections. This can span from content related to your industry to breaking news happening in your community.
