Hi all - I’ve had an idea, let me know what you think!
I thought it would be great for us to support one another on Facebook a bit more - especially as it’s so hard to get noticed on there these days. So, I thought I’d do a regular shoutout on my page for fellow Folksians who have business pages - basically if you leave a link to your page below I’ll do my best to give your page a little love. And it would be great if you could maybe do the same for me! (I’m https://www.facebook.com/photofairytales/)
So what I thought I’d do is basically share one of your posts or do a shoutout post on my page linking to your shop (using the ‘@’ symbol, not an actual url link as Facebook penalise you if you post url’s - if I post an actual link I always do it as a comment below my post). And although FB don’t really use hashtags, I thought I’d use the usual #folksy #folksysellers two just in case it helps!
I’ll give a couple of your page’s posts some attention too, because I know all that helps the algorithm! (Weirdly it seems that FB set more importance on emoji reactions, rather than just the thumbs up - so if you ever want to react to a comment and give it a bit more weight, when you go to like a post choose the heart/wow/haha type reactions rather than just the thumbs up!)
Because I’ll be mentioning your FB page name using the @ symbol you should get a notification that you’ve been mentioned - so if you want to come over and comment/react (remember: heart/wow/haha ideally!!), that would be lovely. I’ll make sure I like your page personally too.
I’ve just done one for Tina @DaisyWings - I’ll paste in an image below so you can see what I’ve done…
I can’t promise I’ll get to all of you, but I’ll definitely do my best - I was thinking I’d do it maybe once or twice a week. If you’d like a mention, leave a link to your page below - and if you fancy returning the favour for me that would be fantastic!
