3 Quick Ideas To Get More Facebook Page Engagement
In this post I will give you 3 quick ideas to help you boost conversation and get more Facebook page engagement. The problem:

The best thing you can do right now is ditch the sales and think about how you can show off your expertise or products without actually shouting BUY THIS at every given opportunity. Saving your promotions for advertising means you can spend your time getting social with your fans. Create a content calendar and put together a mix of content which is interesting, inspiring, fun and engaging. Use Canva to create fun images and post planner to find already well known viral content.
