    Hi,

    Recently I've created my first Facebook Ad, the Promote Page Ad, with the minimum amount per day ($0.5) for 7 days. I'm getting around 7-8 page likes per day, around 60-70 people reach my ad daily.
    I'm looking now at Boost Post section and for the same amount of money and same audience they say will reach approximate 5000-14000 people. On a boosted post you have the "Like Page" button so my question is: What is better for getting page likes, Promote Page or Boost Post?

    Thanks ;)

    Largely depends on the type of page you have and your targeted audience. In general promoting page will get you a lot more likes, whilst boost post is good for pushing out posts in which you have shared external links (eg your website) from where you monetize the traffic.

    Boost post won't get many page likes for my experience. Estimated reach number sometimes is far off what you actually get.

    Ok. Thanks boys! I will boost a post when I'm giving something for free like a logo or announcements.

    To get page likes, its better to use promote page option. To grow your audience, you can use the ad with promote page option. If your goal is to promote specific content that you are posting then boost the post option can be preferred.

    Fuck page likes, use the boost post option. Just don't do it from the actual page, do it properly from ads manager and target properly.
