Requirements for perfect Facebook posts
After looking into hundreds of Facebook posts every day from business and personal profiles. I found the best ever 6 tips for creating perfect Facebook posts. However, these are optional, and it’s not necessary to follow all of these tips. For a specific type of post, just follow a relative tip that can enhance your desire. OK let’s begin with tip #1…
Tip #1: Follow other Posts
An action can get a reaction, I hope you are getting me. Anyways, to get more likes and comments, shares, and reactions on your Facebook posts. It’s necessary to follow others’ posts. Do like, comment, and react to your friends, related business, posts from family members, and communities around. I am telling you this from personal experience to get thousands of these in the return. Yea, celebrities on social media don’t care.
I have two Facebook profiles, one is for my friends and the other is for my family members only. I do give a like to posts, write comments, and react to friends. I keep doing this on each post in my news feed. After a while when I post something on my timeline or news feed. It gets hundreds of likes and comments, shares, etc. While on the other side, in the Family Facebook Profile, I don’t, because I don’t use that profile at all. I never give likes or write comments on their posts. However, when I post something there, it gets a very portion of reactions, that is it.
Tip #2: Don’t Rush while posting
Yes, you heard me. Especially for businesses and even regular Facebook users, Don’t just put something there to post and you are done. No, it never works this way. However, you can take some time, to schedule posts on Facebook for the next (in busy days) day. But it is important to write something that gets attention, put an image or video that is interesting. Everything in the post must look perfectly fine, you can also ask your friends or anyone in family members to help you decide. I hope you are getting me.
Tip #3: Post content “characters” length
If you wanna get most of your posts on Facebook, then try keeping its characters short up to 40 or fewer, or a little higher up to 45 and 50 also works fine. However, keeping the characters fewer than 40 is the best practice (get 90% engagement) I have seen on various posts. Moreover, it is you who knows how to describe something in a few words with up to 40 characters. Yes, you need to do this to get better results. Just give it a try.
Tip #4: Use quality media
Never direct copy and paste your media while posting on Facebook. I mean you may have images, and videos you wanna post. Just open them and think about their enhancement, and how you can make them even better. Use photo editing software, or video editing tools to give more quality touches to your media. The better quality posts always get better results. Let’s say you have a funny photo, try adding some funny faces on it, funny emojis, and a funny sentence on it using Photoshop or any there photo editing software. Then you can expect results.
Tip #5: Best time to publish your post
Last but not least, you must know the best time to publish your post. Nobody can tell you about the best on-peak or off-peak time to publish a Facebook post. Do look at your previous posts, and find the best ones with similar published times. While on the Pages, you can go to your page analytics to find the best time to publish your perfect post.
Tip #6: Use Hashtags
Hashtags are the best way to target someone, a business, or an audience in relevance. To target a specific audience for your business or any of your friends, you can add a # before their names, for example, I will #SociallyPro. I won’t go in-depth about using hashtags here.
