The Five Best Ways to Engage Your Fans on Facebook

Video by Dave from theKBuzzcrew’s YouTube channel

Dave says:

In today’s Watch me Wednesday video, I talk about the 5 best ways to engage your Facebook fans:

1. Posting photos! A picture is worth a thousand words. Instead of using words post pictures. By posting interesting pictures, you can get people talking on your page.
2. Posting videos! If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a thousand pictures. Create a short form content video between 60 seconds and two minutes and share it with your fans. A great feature about posting a video on Facebook is if someone is watching the video, they can click above it to become a fan of the page if they are not already!
3. Share links to interesting articles and resources with your fans! Links are a great way to bring relevant content to your fan page that may not be your own.
4. Ask your fans questions! If people are not commenting on your updates, it is because you are not asking them to. If you ask your fans what they think of something or what they are doing, they will answer these questions on your page.
5. For the more advanced users, utilize interactive apps including polls, quizzes, and virtual gifts. These are some ways to engage your fans on a more advanced level.
