It’s no secret that Facebook is decreasing the reach of Facebook pages in order for them to pay lots of money. But if you don’t have much money, what do you do? Here are three ways that you can improve your reach on Facebook.
1. Use Facebook Live
Facebook Live originally came out last year, and today it’s one of the hottest tools in social media. Facebook Live also helps you drive better traffic to your website as well as give you more reach on Facebook. Yet many people haven’t tried it and even more don’t know how to use it. Here are few ways you can use Facebook Live:
To give an excerpt from your blog post, all you have to do is turn on your phone and explain one point. If it’s a lengthy article you can use an excerpt. For example, if I were doing a Facebook Live for this post, I’d share one of these three ways. Afterwards, you can link to the blog post in the description or in the comments.
Behind the Scenes
Someone’s always interested in the back life of someone else. Don’t be afraid to open up and show other people what you’re doing. Remember that you need to make sure that you are providing value to other people’s lives, not showing off.
For example, I’ve done Facebook Live videos of what I carry in my bag, where I’m working from, or what I’m using right now.

Tutorials and Demos
The third way you can use Facebook Live is by giving tutorials and demos of your products and services. It’s one thing to hear someone talk about a product or service and it’s another thing to actually see it live. If you’re selling a product, show people how your stuff works and they’ll be more likely to use it. If you’re selling services, you can give demos of how you do stuff.
