    Just went to promote a post and these were my options:

    $20 for a reach of 16-30
    $100 for a reach of 80-150
    $150 for a reach of 220-410

    Last time I boosted a post it cost me $20 for 10k people to see it.

    I thought you are able to set your max amount for post and also pick demographics?

    This is for promoting posts, I think you are thinking of Ads.

    the free and cheap way (if you are not good to do it for free) to promote a post is get a lot of likes. When your post get big amount of like it will be showed also to people that isnt showed before. Contact me if you need some cheap likes to burst your posts. I can give you also free samples ;)

    It's like the early days of AdWords, you could actually get excellent CPM performance for cheap prices.

    Then Google tweaked their system so that even keywords nobody's bidding for cost a minimum price that is often surreal. Make an inexistent word up, promote it, it starts costing a whole lot more and surely nobody's bidding for it...

    it is now based on a percentage of your total likes? for me 20$ reaches 100,000 people minimum. Maybe it is niche too? not sure. Tried it once and it is totally not worth it. I reach more likes naturally per day free instead of paying for it

    Its just insane. This pretty much eliminates me from boosting anything. Even on the low end its crazy. For $5 I have an estimated reach of 5-7 people.

    Facebook has an IPO to maintain. I hate when tech company's go public

    You will reach more if you reach their friends (around 9k - 15k).

    Facebook works in this way:
    If you have a fan page with 10k fans and your status update not get at least the 10% of likes stay sure that not all the future status update will be showed to all the fans but only to 10%. So if you incrase your likes on status update you can get more exposure for your status to more fans. As I said in PM, send me a your status update link, I will send you some likes and you can see that you can get more exposure in the next one.
