Problem with facebook reach 2016 - help needed

11 replies
Hi guys,

I started a page a few days ago about bikini models, it does not contain nudity, please see to understand facebook.com/datasterisk

Im running page promotion ads and Im now up 900 fans.

My organic reach on the first and second day was great, since yesterday it died, I mean it literally died, I just posted a photo and it reaches only 1 person, this as been the norm for the last couple of photos.

This does not make sense. Did they kind of red flagged me or restricted me? My page is 100% legite, this is driving me nuts, can someone help me understand what the problem is?

    I spent over 100€ to get those 1000 fans, legit fans bought with page promotion ads inside facebook, now f*cking facebook shuts the page down or whatever with 0 reach, literally 0, to be honest, under 5/10 person reach in a 1000 fan page with a few days live. How ridicule is that?!?!?! how can this happen?

    What you say and what you do seem to be quite different....it's not a "bikini" site...

    It's a bikini / fitness model page. Like there are several many others.

    Are you sure that Facebook shut you down? I am not sure about the contents of your page but as you know people might not exactly be happy by the sight of bikinis, especially female advocates. Have you encountered any complaints regarding your site?

    If you are going to voice an opinion - at least LOOK at the site.

    I have nothing against bikinis - have been known to wear them.

    It is a "big butt site" - period. Apparently it's allowed here now as mods have done nothing about the link in the OP. Another "quality" thread.

    I would think that at this point, Facebook is regulating your posts, how many do you do in a day? They might already be considered spam, plus the fact that you are on it for just a couple of days, even if it's paid it may somehow not feel right to their statistics. I am not sure, but it is really rather difficult to get the Facebook ads temper in check.

    I'm not here to educate anyone on facebook,aparently the ones replying know less about facebook marketing then I do.

    I would really appreciate insight and help but I'm not engaging users at this forum trying to derrail the conversation and passing judgement off topic.

    I will and can provide insight onto other marketeers that come by here with the same problem. Apparently fans obtained trough paid advertisement have less engagement / reach, I've seen rumors of this, it's very hipocritical of Facebook, I think they think that if you can pay for likes you can pay for reach. I can verify that boosted posts have reach on my page. This might still be dependant on the content.

    The content of my page are in line with Facebook TOS for pages and there are pages on the same topic with several hundred thousand fans, not one, but hundreds of pages. At this point I'm running several case studies.

    here are simply too many Pages producing too much content for too many fans, which means competition for visibility on the News Feed is high. What's more, Facebook is trying to make sure people are only seeing the best content the stuff that is relevant to them.
    Some tips for you How to Deal With Declining Organic Reach
    1) Educate your super fans that they can update their notification settings from your Page.
    2) Encourage fans to engage with your posts when they do see them, so they see more of them.
    3) If you do advertise, go beyond the basics.
    Conversion Tracking: Track the actions of site visitors after viewing your Facebook ad.
    Custom Audiences: Target Facebook ads based on your email list.
    Lookalike Audiences: Target Facebook users similar to your customers.
    Audience Insights: Learn about your existing Facebook audience to better target your ads.
    Website Custom Audiences: Target Facebook users who have visited your website before.
    Facebook Exchange: Place retargeted ads on Facebook for users who’ve visited a certain product or service page on your site.
    Lots and Lots of Customizable Reporting: Create reports based on metrics that matter most for your business.

    As long as your page doesn't violate Facebook's terms of service (it looks like that might be a bit of a grey area after reading a few of these comments, but let's say it doesn't. There are lots of things you can do to make sure you're giving your posts as much chance of having an authentic reach as possible.

    I'm happy to write them down for you but unfortunately, there are some things which are going to take time to get your content seen before everyone else's. Anyway - it's worth a go.

    1) Be consistent.
    Once Facebook knows that you're genuine and that you're posting every day or at least every couple of days, they'll be more likely to show your posts. When you first set up your page, they don't know if you're a spammer or not so they need to be careful with which posts they show to the audience. Post consistently and after a while they'll know that you're genuine and will put your posts out there accordingly.

    2) Don't overdo it.
    While it's important to post regularly, pumping out a load of posts will definitely see your reach decrease, especially if you're content is all of a similar nature. Genuine posters don't post a lot of the same content so it raises the alarms of the little robots and you then get treated in the same way as a spammer - reduced reach.

    3) Use hashtags.
    This will get your post in front of those who are searching for whatever it is you're offering. Once people who aren't following you see and engage with your posts, their friends will start to see and react to and your reach will grow organically (the best way)

    4) Be interesting.
    Simple. If your post is interesting, people will like it, their friends will see it, their friends will see it - your reach will grow.

    Unfortunately it's a slow process and not one which you can cut corners with. If you don't have the time or patience for the up and downs of Facebook marketing, it might be best to hand it over to someone who does, Seriously there's nothing more frustrating than great posts that don't get much reach, and vice versa!
    Cheers Ads.
