    Hello BHW,

    I need couple of advices regarding my FB page.

    Actually, regarding the growth of my fanbase. I got about 8000 likes in 10 days.
    The page is in funny pictures niche. I know it's hard to monetize it properly but I have an idea, I just need to grow my fanbase.

    Does anybody (who already works with funny pics) have any advice on how to get more (real) fans?
    These 8K I got by boosting posts on facebook (about 150 Euros spent), and I don't want to spend anymore money, I wanna try it without any post boosting.

    I was thinking about increasing fans engagment, but I did whatever I could until now and I don't have anymore ideas on how to get fans engage (read: comment or share, not like).

    When I post a picture I get 100 - 200 likes (sometimes more) , 10 - 20 shares and 5 - 10 comments.

    Maybe somebody has some new idea... (I already googled and used search function on BHW, all I found is old articles that I already used)...

    I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Shtrudla

    Facebook is killing organic reach for pages. They want to suck out every penny they can out of boosts.

    I'm aware of that, but, with these 8K fans, when I'm posting a link to a website I'm getting about 400 UV. It's not bad. I just need more fans.
    I will boost more, that's for sure, but I wanna test how many fans I can get by myself.

    The rate at which Facebook is cutting organic reach, in the coming years, it will be about 2-3% of your fans. Facebook has become a pay-to-reach model. But you can still increase your engagement.
    - Try sharing HQ posts - Put yourself in their shoes and see if you would really share this content.
    - Keep updates short - No one has time to read long posts.
    - Find out the best time to post to reach maximum people.
    - Frequency of posts.
    - Ask questions to engage your fans.

    1) Create an event or contest or start a discussion where your fans have scope to discuss to keep them engage them
    2) Post for your fans but not for your website.
    3) Keep titles and images interesting

    10 days. Not USA fans. I got 1500+ more in last 24 hours just by boosting post for 12-13 euros.
