Do you wonder how many people see your Facebook posts?
Your goal is to have your art seen by your fans.
How Many People See Your Facebook Posts?
Facebook’s algorithm keeps changing. In fact, it seems as if it is changing every day. With this new algorithm, most of your posts are not seen by your fans. In fact, only an average of 8% of your fan base will see your posts.
That means 8 out of 100 fans will see your post. Those numbers can be discouraging. You work hard to gain a fanbase. You want your fans to see your latest art.
This brings up a critical question. Do you try to build a bigger fan base or do you try to engage more with the fans you already have?
It is important to build your audience, but more effort should be taken to reach the fans you already have.
Here are some helpful tips that will help you reach more of your fans.
Sharing images is easy for artists. You want people to see your latest artwork. But what happens if it takes you a week or two to create your art? Does this mean that you do not post anything for a couple of weeks? You should try to post every day even if you do not have any new work to share.
You should attempt to post every day even if you do not have any new work to share. You do not want you followers to start forgetting about you.
You can post progress of your latest work, news on upcoming events and inspirational stories. Just include an image with your postings.
The next time you watch someone on Facebook, notice how quickly they scroll through the posts. Most of the time, they will skim through the posts until something catches their eyes. Then they will stop to see what the post is about.
Reply to Comments
Always reply to comments on your posts. Engage in a conversation with your fans. Facebook will keep your posts in the News Feed if your posts receive likes, shares or comments. By replying to comments left on your post you are keeping a conversation going. Just keep the conversation relevant to the posting. This might pull your post into other News Feeds as well.

Post at Different Times
Some studies show when the best time to post is. The best way for you to find out what works best for your feeds is by trying different times and analyzing the outcome. This will take a few weeks for you to get an accurate study but it will be well worth your time.
Keep in mind you might have a fan base located all around the world. They will be on Facebook at different times. You need to find when they are online and post at those times.
Don’t be afraid to post the same message at different times during the day. Try posting in the morning one day then the next day posts the same posting at night.
Another thing to think about is posting during off times. What I mean by that is to post when people are not posting. If you post when everyone else is posting on Facebook, the chances of your post getting lost are greater than when fewer posts are being published.
Sometimes thinking outside of the box is the best thing for your business.
Asking questions is another great way to engage with your fanbase. This is another way for your posts to keep on top of the News Feeds.
Asking questions will also give you valuable information on what interests your fan base. This will make creating contact easier for you.
