Want Your Stuff Seen on Facebook? Stop Complaining and Do the Work!

I hear more and more grousing about Facebook’s algorithm these days—people complaining that Facebook won’t show their posts to their followers. Ok, here’s my......

    That's awesome Ted, and I know that you have the insight and years of experience that let you kill it at pretty much any platform you put your hand to. I'm curious, do you find that FB provides the same type of ROI as the other platforms you are on?

    Well, I hear you Tom, but will tell you I am reaping great results, and not paying. But I love FB and get more value out of it every time they make the changes that most complain about.

    Oh, I absolutely agree. And I'm 100% with you that the key to growing a successful web presence is rooted in building actual, genuine relationships, not simply trying to push content before eyeballs. Interaction, investing in others, and going where people are is all essential.

    My issue with FB - and the reason that I do not use it in my social strategy - is that I want to invest my time somewhere where the long-term impact is sustained. But on FB, my time investment is only sustainable long term if I am willing to pay to keep it.

    If I take the time to connect with people and build those relationships, I want to reap the results, not have to pay another entity to allow me access to what I took the time to build.

    I agree with some of this, and do not agree with other parts Thomas. But... if you put n the time and work, yu will get the views... and most importantly if people like what you post and how you interact, they will come to you. PLUS... do not forget about the huge benefit of you going to them... which just about no one is bothering to do.

    The problem is that the FB algorithm DOESN'T reward authentic interaction. It establishes a diminishing ROI so that after you have invested the time building genuine relationships and establishing a substantial following, you have to pay FB just to maintain that. It is here that the issues come in.

    In the beginning, building a FB following has a significant return. When the following is small, it naturally has a much higher engagement rate. When a brand has 100 people, it's natural that the engagement percentage is high.

    When a brand has 10,000 people, that percentage shrinks, both because of the scale and because a portion of your following naturally moves on to other things over time. It is this way in every medium: social media, email open rates, blog followers, fans, clients, the list goes on. Not to mention, as you grow a certain portion of your following comes to be made up of inactive accounts.

    The important difference is that email subscribers (for example) still get the email unless they choose not to. Why? Because they said they want it when they subscribed. But with FB, you are punished for this natural shift in engagement due to scaling. At 100 followers, engagement is high, visibility is high, and everything looks fine. But at 10,000 followers, when engagement naturally diminishes as a percentage, you have to pay to allow those people that have said they want to see your content to actually see your content. Of course, by that point, you're too invested to be able to afford NOT paying just to keep what you've built.

    And ultimately, that's the problem. FB helps you to build an engaged following and then, once you're invested, forces you to pay just to keep it.

    Reducing the bounce rate on visitors is something that I still work at, but you are right that even when it comes to "interested leads" they don't always stick around, but building the relationships is definitely a vital piece.
