How do you appeal to your readers for more Facebook engagement?
Facebook makes it easy for you to target your audience.
The power of convincing those who see your posts to take action is all up to you.
Growing your business with Facebook means unique things to different types of businesses and people.
Think about what that means.
Besides your own unique needs, you need to understand more about your readers’ unique needs, wants, likes, desires, passions, oh, and point of view.
- Your job is to know what they want from you that you want to offer.
Your Facebook posts are your breadcrumbs leading your ideal readers down that trail we call your funnel.

Using a powerful headline to attract is always the goal!
Now, this is the fun part.
>> Your ideal readers glance at the first 3 words and the last 3 words of the headline helping them make a decision
Remember, it doesn’t matter how good your copy is if they don’t read it.
– It’s you breaking through and gaining their awareness with your headline that may help more Facebook engagement.
The most important thing to remember is: the three Ps for good content – personalized, positive, pointed
- Personalized: made for your readers with headlines that will attract and pull them in to read more
- Positive: Facebook and your readers like seeing supportive and inspirational
- Pointed: The best Facebook headlines are to the point, meaningful, and easily understood.
>> Facebook’s recommendation is that headlines are 25-40 characters long to maximize engagement.
Of course, always ask yourself – if you were seeing this post in your newsfeed, would you be attracted to it?
What’s in it for them?
I don’t like saying it, but I like instant gratification and I’m aware that most people on Facebook feel the same. Right?
You can get into the habit of quickly telling your reader what’s in it for them, by helping them feel good, better, and best. So give your post:
The purpose of solving problems for your audience.
But that’s just the start of your Facebook engagement understanding…
