7 Facebook post ideas that practically guarantee engagement
One thing our audience loves is to know the back story. It can be how you become a writer, why you decide to write a particular book or the experiences you gather writing the book.
Write compelling text posts, or share pictures or videos. You can also go live and talk directly to the readers.
The reason why storytelling helps to engage people is that stories are personal and they help you to build trust among the readers.
Sharing trending topics or viral videos are good for your page. There is hilarious writing/author meme out there that can be shared with your page followers. Trust me, memes can do wonders to your page engagement.
I share writers struggling memes on my page. They not only help to have good laugh but also subtly say that I understand your struggles as a writer.
One of the great ways to promote your books and engage the readers is to have regular book reading session. You can record yourself reading the pages or you can go live and read for your audience.
You can talk about the emotions involved in a particular chapter or passage. It helps the readers to engage with your content.
Podcasts are powerful. We all know it.
And you have been constantly thinking to start a podcast, but the cost of producing one was keeping you from it. Now this problem is solved.
Facebook page comes with a live audio feature which can be used to start a podcast. It is easy, free and Facebook favours the pages that go live regularly.
It is as easy as going live. But instead of your face+voice, the audio live will only broadcast your voice.
Few things on social media can never go wrong. Quotes are one of them. People on Facebook love to share quotes. It can be an inspirational quote, a motivational quote, quote on writing or books, or quotes of personal development.
You can share the quotes as text posts or as images. Canva is a great tool to create images with writing and they have lots of Facebook post templates to choose.
Going live is probably the best thing you can do now to engage your Facebook page followers. You can go live at regular interval making it a weekly or bi-weekly feature.
Lives engage more people as most of them watch till the end and ask/comment questions. You can go live while sitting with your editor showing the behind-the-scenes, you can spotlight a fan on live sessions, read quotes, answer direct questions or sharing an event you attend.
Make sure you are friendly on the live so that your audience can connect and engage. It helps to keep a smile and ask about their lives and addressing them by names. It also helps when you answer the comment on the live itself.
As much as ridiculous it can sound, but selfies work everywhere. People love to see your picture. Whenever you are busy to go live or tired to try a podcast, take a selfie and post about your absence.
It helps the readers to understand that you care but you are still as human as they are.
I hope these 7 Facebook post ideas will help you to engage your readers and encourage them to read your writings.
