How to Maximize Organic Reach in the Facebook News Feed for FREE

We all know that in the last year-and-a-half, Facebook organic reach has gone from around 16 percent per post to as little as 1 percent per post.

If you’re a business on Facebook, chances are you have searched and studied different aspects of a Facebook post (type of post, time of posting, the perfect anatomy of a Facebook post) in order to get better results, to maximize clicks, likes, and comments.

You compete with hundreds of thousands of posts to be seen in the Facebook News Feeds of your fans.Of course, just because you post something that doesn’t mean that all your Facebook fans want to see that post.When using Facebook ads this problem is easy solved, we can target the perfect audience using the interests option.
