Tips on how to manage a successful Facebook page
I conclude this discussion by giving you some advice on how to manage a successful Facebook page. Below, therefore, I will not provide you with technical advice (I have already done so in the previous lines), but practical suggestions – I hope useful – on how to best organize the activities to be carried out with your Facebook page.
- Regularly publish quality posts – keeping your Facebook page “alive”, by regularly posting fresh, current and impactful content, is very important to increase the chances of success of the page itself. In addition to regularity, also pay attention to the quality of the same and the relevance they have with the target you want to address.
- Don’t “spam” – being regular in posting new content on the Facebook page does not mean having to become a “spammer”. There are already too many of them out there, so avoid publishing an infinite number of posts every day: better a few interesting content than a lot of useless content.
- Be available – as the page becomes more popular, the comments, messages and interactions that users have with your page are likely to grow. Try to be available by answering as many people as possible. By doing so, you will be able to retain the users who follow the page or entice them to put “Like”, if they have not already done so.
- Keep up to date and / or contact professionals in the sector – as you may already know, the Facebook algorithm is constantly evolving and that is why keeping up to date on the best techniques to use in the social field is essential to avoid adopting losing strategies. How can you keep up to date? Basically in two ways: by participating in training courses on the professional use of Facebook and by availing yourself of the help of professionals in the sector, like a good social media manager.
