If you’re posting things on Facebook and wanting to get business from it, make sure your posts are shareable.
Hi, this is Steve Johnsen and I wanted to share a quick tip with you on how to make sure your Facebook posts are shareable. Sometimes I post to Facebook and it’s something that I just want to share with my friends, so I can use the default “share with friends” option when I’m posting.
Sometimes?actually, a lot of times?when I post things on Facebook, it’s information that I think might be useful to anybody, and I’d like it to be accessible to the public. A lot of times when I’m posting something related to business on Facebook it would be great if when people read it and like it, they would share it with their friends, and then their friends would share it with their friends?That’s the very definition of something going viral on Facebook. When I share with my friends, and then my friends share with their friends, and then the friends of friends share with their friends, it can reach a large audience very quickly.
A good friend of mine posted part of a book she was writing on Facebook yesterday. It was really well written, and I knew it would help her get clients. So, I wanted to share it with my followers on Facebook, but it wasn’t shareable.
If you’re posting stuff on Facebook that you’d like to get seen by the world, here’s a quick tip for you. When you go to make a post on Facebook, in the box where you’re writing your post, at the bottom there’s a little box that says who you’re sharing with: either “Public” or “Friends” or “Friends of Friends” or “Friends Except?” or “Only me” (private setting). What you want to do if you’ve got something you want to share with the world is make sure that you select the Public option. That way, the friends who want to will be able to share it with others.
