When you look at your Facebook wall, what do you see?  You probably see an influx of information coming in from a countless steam of friends. For every several posts that you see, you likely miss one or two since there is such a flood of information on a Facebook wall.  If you’re missing posts, your Facebook fans are missing posts as well.  In fact, they are probably missing some posts that are directly related to your business.

Fortunately, Facebook is making it easier for your marketing posts to stand out from the crowd.  They are now offering a “Page Post Story” with Facebook Ads.

Here’s how it works.  You go to Facebook ads, but instead of creating an ad, you select a Page Post Story. Now, Facebook will pull the last post you made on your page.  That post will be turned into an ad, which will display on the side of people’s Facebook pages.

Let’s see why this is so important.

Assume you have a pet care business, and you are offering 20% off for the weekend.  You create a post that says:

You post it on your wall, but the post gets buried among all of the other posts.  Most of your fan base doesn’t even see it.

Then you get the bright idea to make it a Page Post Story.  Now, your post is visible to all of your Facebook fans. The next thing you know, your phone is ringing off the hook, since your fans want to take advantage of that special.

That’s how Page Post Stories Work.

Advertising is all about getting noticed, and Page Post Stories are yet another way to get noticed.  If you want Facebook to work for you, people have to see your message.  That’s why you need to give Page Post Stories a try.

    My web site is still in the proces of being set up. It’s going to be designed to help people that are disabled and need help with one thing or another.
    I’m still waiting for my EIN so I can get moving on setting up the site.
    I’m disabled, I have APS, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Restless Leg Syndrom, and a number of other things. I can’t walk, but that doesn’t stop me. I’m 62 years young and that doesn’t stop me. Everyplace I go, People ask me how I do it. Well, once my website is set up and working,
    I’m going to start doing blogs. I may be coming to you for some help with that.
    It’s taking me a while, but better late than never. People need me.

As you probably can tell I am computer stupidooo. All the info you give me is probably very good, but when you are me and can,t navigate crapp it sure is frustrating. Keep comin with the info and I will keep trying to put it to use.

  20. Katie Figueroa

THANKS for all your great tips! Still waiting on my State Tax ID #. Mailed the form more than a week ago.
