  7. 5 Tips for Writing a Facebook Post with the Perfect Call to Action1. Ask a question: The question you ask should speak directly to your target users’ needs,wants or interests. The more specific and detailed the question is, the better. You want thequestion to grab the attention of Facebook users..2. Provide some information: Once you’ve asked a question, follow it up with someinformation. The most appealing of status updates are ones that offer the users something–it could be information or entertainment. Keep in mind though, if the objective is to directusers elsewhere (like your blog or website) don’t fully disclose everything valuable that youhave to offer.3. Always provide a link: While we’re on the topic of links, be sure to provide one. Not allFacebook posts need a link.4. Don’t bother yourself with a word limit: You have more than 140 characters. Just posting“Click here!” or “Take our survey!” with a link is not a strong enough call to action– nor is it astrong Facebook post.5. Provide an image or Video: Visuals always help. With CTAs especially, images can reallycomplement and spearhead the success of a CTA. For instance, you can ask a question thatrelates to the image or provide a graphic that provides some knowledge to the user.
