How Honest Abe Can Help Your Practice On Facebook

By June 3, 2015September 13th, 2021No Comments

What does Honest Abe have to do with Facebook? Let me show you what $5 can do.

A lot of our clients have been asking, “Why aren’t we getting as many Likes, comments, and shares lately on our practice’s Facebook page?”

A year ago, Facebook pushed your posts to 20–40% of your fans’ newsfeeds. Today, it’s estimated that only 1–4% of your fans see any given post. Why? Because Facebook has gone to a pay-to-play model.

Boosting Is A Great Remedy

We’ve been doing a lot of testing with our clients to see what works as far as boosting posts on Facebook.

Let me show you an example. The practice featured below posted an image of the doctor who returned from his vacation. The practice’s Facebook page had 162 page Likes.

Dentists Boosting Facebook marketing

We boosted this post with $5 to “people who like your page and their friends”. Prior to the boost, the post reach was 28 people with 5 likes—but after the boost, the reach increased to 412 people with 28 likes and 4 comments… All from a $5 boosting expenditure.

If Fans Don’t See It, They Can’t Share It

Here at My Social Practice, we provide our clients with amazing, effective content every business morning. But after they post it, if nobody sees it, nobody can Like, comment on, or share it.

Create a budget. Let’s say you spend $5 every business day boosting one post. That’s about $100 a month. If it’s discouraging to you to pay for something that you didn’t previously pay for just remember what a great value Facebook is in terms of reach. It’s still the best bang for your buck.

So put your practice trust in Honest Abe and see the difference it can make on your practice’s Facebook page.
