How to Drive Engagement Organically with Facebook Marketing

7 November 2018

3 mins read

If you own a smartphone or have any mode of access to the Internet, chances are you have a Facebook account. And so do billions worldwide! Last we checked Facebook has an average of 1.45 billion active daily users. Sounds insane?

For marketers, while those numbers mean for potential, they come with a downside: everybody wants their post to be seen, and there are a lot of posts (an estimated 4:1 ratio of posts to people, in fact). If you don’t already know, organic reaches have steadily gone down through the years although Facebook’s not acknowledging it.

Why this happens isn’t just because of the metaphorical mountain that is the 4-billion-posts-per-day-on-Facebook burying your own post – it’s also due to Facebook’s Newsfeed Algorithm, which filters posts and does quality control to ‘optimise the user experience’ by showing them what’s relevant and interesting to them.

That algorithm doesn’t necessarily help the marketers struggling to get their fan-base to see their recent posts, however – and the less engagement you get the less likely Facebook will let your posts be featured on people’s News Feeds.

Sounds scary, but there are ways to outsmart artificial intelligence:

Know When to Post

Depending on your targeted audience, the demographics and psychographics of your audience are prominent factors to timing your posts perfectly.

Why? Because no one really scrolls through Facebook during office hours.

And according to Hootsuite, the best times for them to post on Facebook are 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. during the weekdays excluding Tuesdays (the slowest day for them) and 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. during the weekends.

Posting at the right times increases your chances of increasing audience engagement (likes, comments, shares and website click-throughs); so to achieve that, your Facebook Page Insights can be used to track and analyse your engagement data.

Don’t Spam, Be Realistic in Your Frequency

No one likes a pusher. Never mind an audience that scrolls through hundreds of posts every day. Depending on your followers and your content, you can post more than the recommended 1 – 3/day if:

  • You have an international following; posting at different times depending on their time zones covers more ground.
  • You have high-quality content that has variety. People are more likely to be attracted by posts that are humorous, inspirational and informative. Post at different timings with different types of content.
Utilise Facebook Video Formats

Facebook videos are an integral part of the average user’s routine to using Facebook – from tutorial videos to informational ones, we scroll through our video feed without pause; making this format as versatile as it is engaging with over 8 billion average daily views and 100 million hours devoted to videos each day.

And based on Sproutsocial’s analysis, here are some key things in creating video content on Facebook:

  • 85% of Facebook’s users watch videos with no sound; with 80% of them responding negatively towards videos with auto-play sound.
  • Captioned video ads have an increased video time of 12%
  • 20% of Facebook Videos watched are Live; with an engagement rate 3 times higher than a non-live video.
Set Your Preferred Page Audience

Specifying the location, demographics, language and interests of your intended audience on Preferred Page Audience increases the organic reach of your page. And while it’s not the end-all to all solutions, every step counts.

Create Shareable, High-quality Content with Purpose

Content is key in keeping your audience interested and engaged. Humour,

inspirational and educational posts that resonate with your audience are what

prompts them to click into your content because it’s

relevant and useful to them.

To further boost the quality and relevancy of your posts, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is it helpful to the intended audience?
  • Does it fulfil its promise (purpose)?
  • Are there interesting visuals (images, videos) unique only to my brand on the page?
  • Are there Call to Action prompts in my posts to get my audience to take the desired action? (‘Sign Up Now’, ‘Learn More’, ‘Like’, ‘Share’, et cetera)

Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) The New Wave of Advertisement Content?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has slowly crept into every industry, even in digital marketing, and it looked like everything could be made better with AI.

Digital marketing has benefitted from the automation of strenuous processes but the content within ads seemed irreplaceable by AI.

At least that’s what people thought until Burger King released this:

If you let your phone’s texting suggestion create an ad for Burger King, you’ll probably get something like:

“Burger King and I wanna was a great night out with the girls in a very small group of fun people who cannot is a great way of making it fun to try it and then make sure to make it happen.”

Similarly, in these ads, the AI’s voiceover and the content were awkward and funny, which seems to hit the spot for some consumers.

While it is scary to imagine a world where even content is run by AI, it seems like there has been more and more research and development going in that direction.

Why did this ad appeal to so many audiences?

Currently, advertisements are proliferating our everyday space, and the only way for your ad to stand out is to find creative and relatable angles.

Likewise, the Burger King ad used a creative yet relatable idea of faulty AI content, which captured the attention of the masses.

Hence, the formula seems clear: the less brand sells the product, the more it will appeal to the general public. This is because such content is viewed as more sincere in their interactions with consumers.

If you are looking for a strategic content with a creative and relatable angle, approach a creative team that generates meaningful interactions with consumers.

Will AI become the new wave of digital advertisement content?

We don’t think so.

AI has successfully transformed digital marketing, such as data analytics and targeting/re-targeting various profiles based on interests and internet behaviour.

But when it comes to content, humans are superior in terms of creativity and empathy, which AI fails to replicate.

Even the content of the Burger King ad itself was created by the marketing team at Burger King, banking on the inability of AI to create content and humour.

Without creativity and empathy, AI is unable to replicate creative and relatable content as exemplified by the Burger King ad.

So how should I craft digital marketing content going forward?

While targeting helps to bring the message to the right people, the right content will find the right people on its own.

Be creative. Creativity will remain the key to content creation for a long time.

Creative content often becomes talking points in everyday conversations and media news and improves your brand visibility.

At the end of the day, you will need creative yet strategic content (link to our top 5 ad article) to achieve marketing goals in the digital age.

It is good to employ advanced technology. However, there’s nothing in this world that can replace good and effective advertising content built on creativity, not even AI.

If you need help in crafting a top-of-the-line advertising content, look for a digital team that is experienced in doing so.
