I decided a few weeks ago to start posting daily on my Facebook page to see if it helped my reach and to drive traffic to my shop. Not every post was to be something I listed; The posts were to be as varied as possible with some things that were just experiments and others that were pix from my garden or gifts for other people.
My reach was up to 300 after doing this for two weeks and although I had no new followers I was feeling pretty happy about things, then five days ago one person (just one) hid just one of my posts. I can’t think why as it was just a pair of earrings, no mention of anything controversial and nothing offensive in any way. Since then my reach has collapsed to 20 and most of my followers are not seeing any of my posts at all.
I don’t like to whinge about this on Facebook itself, but it just seems so unfair that one person can inadvertently cause the whole thing to collapse like a house of cards. Most people on FB probably don’t realize that just hiding one post can do this.
So what to do? I need to post my pix somewhere to let my real friends (who are usually my customers anyway) know what I’ve made or everything dies. But FB just seems to be poison for me at the moment.
