Ways to boost engagement on Facebook
So what can you do to boost engagement on Facebook? Here are some suggestions.
Create a Facebook page
A page is easy to create and allows you to post any type of content to attract clients. What’s more, you don’t have to pay a penny to create a page. It’s free.
Ensure that your content is of high-quality, otherwise; you might be doing more harm than good. Your content should be;

With more people seeing and engaging with your content, the more Facebook notices you, which helps with ranking. Also, remember that you’ll be getting your business in front of possible clients, which should lead to more sales.
