promoted posts are a scam! Tried it once with a band page I manage with 8K fans...never again.


@mike: promoted posts have actually worked really well for me. The reach on average is 15x greater for my typical post.


@pranav the "reach" on my campaign did well...but it didn't seem like many people engaged. We used it to promote a new music video and we got less views compared to the other video we released before that. FB manipulates....sure, your content was posted on more people's news feeds, but we're not sure who these people are. It's worthless if FB is just posting it on feeds of people who don't know who the band is. I want to reach the 8K people who voluntarily searched for them and "liked" their page to keep in touch. I've read multiple stories of people using promoted posts and getting comments from random middle eastern accounts.


You can also use a service like Instabuck ( http://instabuck.com/music ) where they create a facebook widget player that besides the audio samples has a buy now button.

Very good both for promoting and selling your music, as anyone who likes your page their friends get the player instead of a simple link.

However, even with all of that traffic, marketing on Facebook can be a tricky endeavor. Many Facebook page admins struggle with getting users engaged. They post a never ending stream of promotions with very little commenting, liking or sharing from their fans.

It's really tough to make presence on facebook and increase the fan page likes but this post can help a bit for everyone who are new to facebook marketing. I really appreciate for sharing these tips with us.
