3 Facebook Tips for Creating Massive Engagement

Facebook authority Amy PorterfieldOne of the comments I often hear (and you probably hear it too) is not only “Facebook takes so much time,” but “how do I get people to interact with me on FB?”

When reading one of Amy Porterfield’s posts, it turns out that one of the questions she gets asked all the time is, “How do I create more engagement on my Facebook Page?” So, since Amy is a Facebook authority and one of Forbes’ Top 50 social media influencers, I thought I’d share 3 of her tips for creating what she calls “massive engagement.”

#1. “Bake in” an easy call to action. If you like to post quotations, why not add a line that says “click here if you like this quote?” Easy enough, right? Amy also suggests that you use this strategy when you post tips, ideas and other valuable info on Facebook. Tell people what you’d like them to do – “like,” share or comment.

#2. Know your “Facebook Fan Fun Triggers”. This is a slant on “fill in the blank” posts. Amy suggests instead of just posting text, you make the statement more fun by adding creative images and relating the “fill-in-the-blank” directly to your ideal audience.

#3. Ask for feedback on your projects. LinkedIn pro Lewis Howes often solicits the opinions of his Facebook fans when he’s creating new content. Amy explains, “When you ask your fans for feedback, you show that you genuinely care what they have to say. This helps you create raving fans. Second, fan feedback can be extremely valuable and ensure that you’re on the right track with your projects.”

  1. I love Amy Porterfield and these are great tips, as usual. What seems to work best for me are interesting images with associated tips or questions. They seem to get the most engagement right now.

    • Hi @Leanne. Amy always has valuable information to share. I find folks respond to quotations accompanied by images. However, I’ve noticed that, on occasion, some of my Fan Page posts (vs. personal page) without images are being viewed more often than those with images. I’ve had 1-2 colleagues tell me they’ve noticed that as well. How about you?
      Thanks for taking the time to share your comments. ~Debra

  2. Debra, that’s what I’ve read (that text posts are now getting more engagement than images), but for me, it’s still images.

  3. Do what works. Or, if ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Right Leanne?

  4. Those are great tips Debra. Asking questions, fun facts, arousing curiosity, and giving call to actions are great ways to build engagement.

  5. Hi Debra — I can tell Amy P. has Facebook nailed! Thanks for sharing her expert tips.

    I oftentimes garner the greatest engagement by posting other people’s awesome, timely, fascinating, funny, or outrageous content. But not just simply posting the link. I always try my best to include a “personal remark” that may entice folks to respond and I also tag the creator of the content in the update box. So I’d have to say taking the focus off me and shining the spotlight on others is effective 🙂

    Another means of igniting engagement on Facebook is by sharing a problem you’re experiencing or a challenge you’re facing. Ask people to step forward if they have advice/suggestions/direction/resources to lend. Don’t get me wrong … I certainly don’t wish problems on anyone … but I’m pretty sure we all encounter them. 😉

  6. Hi Debra,

    These are some really great, not-read-them-a-thousand-times, tips.

    While Facebook is not my focus right now, I think I’ve probably read every ordinary, do-this and do-that post about Facebook.

    It’s good to read about something different that you can speak from experience that actually works.

    Have a great day!
