3 Simple Steps to Grow Your Chiropractic Facebook Page
1) Post daily
Consistency is absolutely crucial on Facebook. They continuously change their algorithms and interface, but consistency never gets old or phased out of production.
Back in my day (cue old man voice) you were able to get a 100 percent reach. That means if I had a thousand people follow The Evidence Based Chiropractor and I put out a post; all thousand people saw it.
Those are what we refer to as the good old days because now 8%, at maximum, see a post. So if you have an audience of 1000 people and you make a post, maybe 80 people are seeing it. So does this mean you shouldn't bother posting? Of course not! It means you need to post consistently! You do not want to go two weeks between posts because at the end of the month your overall reach might look like 20 people, which is unlikely to make an impact. So how are you going to come up with enough content to put out consistently? That's where curated content comes into play.
2) Curated Content
You don't have to create everything yourself. Curated content is content that you haven't personally created, but rather excellent content that you found, that impacted you, and you are sharing with your audience. You may share stuff that's cool, that's interesting, that's controversial. It really whatever you want to do.
3) Use Facebook Live (video)
Video reigns supreme. The algorithm on Facebook current favors video over text, pictures, and links. Basically, a video post reaches MORE of your audience. You may choose to create your own video, go Live, or even share someone else's video (see curated content above). There are two painfully simple things to keep in mind when shooting video- lighting, and audio. Making sure your space is well-light, and that your sound is loud and clear are the two most important aspects of shooting watchable video.
But as with everything moderation is best. Mix it up a little bit. Create some of your own content, share the most impactful things you find, and don't hesitate to turn the camera around and tell your story via video. That's what the Facebook algorithm likes to see and how you can grow your chiropractic Facebook page.
