Hot Tip: Give Your Social Content a Boost

29th November 2021

So you’ve been creating great content for your pages, but you can’t seem to increase engagements, conversions or growth as fast as you’d like. The best way to increase them is with some paid advertising – sometimes called Boost – on your best or most important posts.

Not all of your posts are suitable for a boost. If your post hasn’t worked well, numbers will improve through a boost, but not by much. In contrast, boosting an already successful post will get you the best results. The reason is clear: by boosting, you’re getting your content in front of more eyes. It won’t improve your content. If it did work well organically, boosting will dramatically improve its effectiveness as you extend the reach of a piece of content that you know it resonated with your audience already. By using targeting features, you can make sure you’re reaching just the right people.

The reason for boosting organic posts is over the past few years, Social Platforms have gradually been reducing the effectiveness of Organic Reach – people who see it because they’re a fan or friend of a fan, etc. They did this as a way to drive advertising revenue. With a small daily budget, you can see a 3x-4x increase in engagement over organic dependant on the content you have shared and the targeting you use.

And the good news is that Metigy can help you with this!
