Tips for Growing on Facebook
If you put these tips and suggestions into practice, you’ll have a better chance of growing your page.
But, as you surely know, this is a marathon, not a sprint. The hardest part is getting started, but the challenge is continuing and growing. Ready? Get set!
Optimize your company page
The fan page isn’t just “the page” where you’re going to share content, it’s also a showcase for your business or brand. What would your display look like if it was a bricks-and-mortar business? Of course, it would be pretty, organized, and attractive to draw people into your shop.
The same goes for your fan page: it should be optimized. Add cover and profile pics, your brand name, contact info, and any other information users that come to your page could need.
Having a carefully curated page in every way will attract new followers.
Specify your target audience
Who are you targeting when you create content for your Facebook page?
It may seem silly, but having a clear idea of your target will help you establish your content strategy and win on Facebook. Do a study of your target audience, their needs and how you can help them, then create your content.
This way, you’ll attract the users you really want and who are interested in the content you post. This is the best way to grow your community of followers.
Share interesting content
Think the content you’re sharing and posting on your page is interesting? Facebook’s users aren’t attracted to trivial content that has nothing to do with their lives or the page they follow.
Take as much time as you need to set up a content strategy that brings value to your community: keep the members you have and attract new ones to your fan page.
Content is the essential element that will get users to interact with you.
Analyze the metrics for your content
Following on from the previous tip, so you can promote the content that people like on your Facebook page, how do you know which posts are doing best?
One key aspect of learning how to grow on Facebook is analyzing the metrics, knowing what is working and what isn’t. That will allow you to boost your strategy, make changes or get rid of content that isn’t doing anything for you.

Plan your posts
Always having content on your Facebook fan page is key to generating engagement, but it’s also important for users visiting your page for the first time and your followers to know the page is active.

Interact with your audience
How to grow on Facebook and make your followers and users feel like part of a big community? You know the answer: by engaging with them.
A wall with unanswered comments or without likes looks bad, doesn’t it? Answer your users when they leave comments, like their responses.
If they feel you care and make them part of your community, they’ll keep participating and commenting on your posts. Plus, they’ll speak positively of you to other users, getting you new followers.
Take advantage of the content possibilities
Facebook continues to grow and offer new options to create content and attract new users.
Stories, Reels, Live, Facebook 360… the options for growth are varied and each one will contribute to your content strategy.
Our tip is to make the most of these content options when posting on your page. Even if you think something doesn’t fit your brand tone, users know there is content, like Reels, that is more casual. This can give them a different view of the brand without straying from your goal.
With these tips on how to grow on Facebook, we hope you can give your fan page a push.
