And did you know 85-97% of your fans don’t see your Facebook posts? That’s due to Facebook’s EdgeRank. Facebook themselves admits the average brand page only reaches 16-17% of its fans. Data from PageLever shows brands with millions of fans are only reach ~3% of their fans. “If you want to speak to the other 80 to 85 percent of people who signed up to hear from you, Sponsoring Posts is important.” — Gokul Rajaram, Head of Advertising, Facebook. One way to combat EdgeRank is creating better posts. EdgeRank gives greater exposure (reach) to posts that are more engaging. Boring posts decrease your reach and thus your bottom line. The solution is more interesting posts. But the question is, “What makes a better post?” Without the right data, you can’t possibly know and are flying blind. What would your CEO or CFO think if they knew?
