  19. 19. Posting to Facebook is free and you can post as much as you like, but that doesn't mean anyone is seeing your message. If you have a marketing budget, use a portion of that money to promote your Facebook page. By promoting your page, you can increase the number of fans who like your page or get more likes, shares, and comments on your posts. Use the pay-per-click option, so you only spend money when people click on your post or like your page. You don't have to pay to get exposure on Facebook, but it helps. A LOT.
