It is not news that Facebook is pushing more for advertising than for organic reach.


Gone are the good old days of Facebook when with a handful of followers of fans, you can reach most of them organically.

That is, any post you make on your page reaches a large number of your fans.

But since the advertising platform started,Facebook has drastically reduced how much of your content would reach your followers.

For online marketers who has low budget,it is more difficult getting your post to a large number of followers or people unless you advertising or "Boost your Post"

According to a study by Social@Oglivy,it says that organic reach on Facebook has declined to just 6%.

What that means is that only 6 % of your followers will ever see your post.

You and I know,that this would not give you traffic that you need for your content at all.What marketing can you do with just a meager 6% reach to your followers?

Social@Oglivy did an analysis of how much you can reach with regards to your followers.

  • having 100 followers means six people would see your post
  • having 1,000 followers means 60 people would see your post
  • having 10,000 followers means 600 people would see your post
…and so on.
