Phase 1: Facebook
We had 236 likes on our existing Facebook page.We have become better in recent months about posting,but realized our great content wasn’t reaching as broadan audience as we would like.How do we increase our likes?
We had an extremely successful post duringthe Israel crisis that really got peoplemotivated to like and share.
301 people saw the post14 commentsReached 2,866 peopleWas this a perfect storm, or can we recreate thissuccess?
This “stunt” brought us 18 new likes.People were buzzing about it for a day.We also experimented with the time of day, sending outthe email to the community at night – around 10 pm –probably a little late.
The student trivia post brought us 10 new likes.Not quite as compelling – what motivatespeople to interact?
